The contract position still hasn't started, so in the meantime I've been basking in homemaking. I love it, and am not bothered by the delay. Timing would actually be better if the job thing started mid summer, but by fall for sure.
We have a few short (but expensive) trips to take over the next six weeks. First one is in two weeks (family related). Realizing I have nothing to wear this summer, I started to sew for myself after a few weeks of baby sewing. I have major anxiety about dressing myself these days. It's weird. My body is not a shape I'm used to. I need easy access for nursing. I have to wear those annoying pads that make my chest look lumpy. My stomach isn't back to normal yet either. I'm actually relieved this is my last baby, the last time I'll have these body issues. (Well, until menopause and slower metabolism, but that's a worry for another day. )
Anyway, I wanted to make things because I'm in a transitional size and shape, and I don't want to spend money on clothes that I'll only wear for a season. Plus I really want comfort ... so now I have two knit skirts, with the yoga type waist (comfort! ), two tops that still don't quite fit right, but will do. I'm going to try making better tops this weekend.
