Just a Little Crazy
(Scene opens with wife sewing madly at her machine. Husband approaches and places one hand on her shoulder.)
Husband: What are you making? Is this another gift?
Wife: No, I thought I'd make travel bags for the girls. I remembered this darling tutorial by Ayumi, and I thought these would be perfect for their snacks and toys to keep them busy on the drive.
Husband: (Moment of stunned silence) I'm sorry...we leave for Arizona the day after tomorrow, you have a million things to pack, company coming over the night before we leave, your sister's family coming over to house sit, everyone has to have a hand sewn gift, and now you're making travel bags for the girls?
Wife looks up at her husband with a sheepish smile.
Husband: Sweetheart...please don't take this the wrong way, but you're insane.
Okay, so maybe he's right. But the bags are done, they hold even more than I'd hoped, and they're so adorable that I can't wait to make more when I get home. So I'm not insane really...just a little crazy.
And to prove it, I'll be spending eight hours driving through the desert in a minivan tomorrow with three little girls under the age of seven. Pray for me...
