For the last 4 nights Penny has slept through without waking and stayed in her own room. This is made of awesome... although I still wake up at least a half a dozen times. Today I got up at 6:45 and was able to eat breakfast before P woke up at 7:30. I really, really hope this phases lasts - it'll be nice to catch up on a little sleep before we start back at square one with "&".
Next weekend we get her room done and will probably move her over so she can get used to sleeping in her "new" bed. I hope the transition goes well, although since "&" won't need the nursery for awhile after he/she is born it won't be a big deal if Penny needs to stay in the nursery for a couple of months longer.
This week is going to be busy. On top of the perpetual job searching, we have music class, a Rice Krispy Treat party, a prenatal appointment, I teach a cloth diapering workshop, I have to attend a class at the Employment Development Department (part of receiving unemployment - they look over my resume and give me job search tips), Grandma Barbara is in town, I have a paper to write, and Sarah and I have diapers to sew!
Today P and I went over to Sarah's and I sewed the pocket part of 17 diapers. After the first they went pretty fast - we still have a lot to get done (cutting the rest, pockets on the rest, elastic, snaps, and then sewing them all together) but so far we're off to a good start. They're going to be SO CUTE when they're all finished!
