night time listening

My mom gave us this CD before Averi was born. At the time I found it difficult/unappealing to listen to but I guess once I was listening to it with Averi (outside the womb!) it totally changed it for me. We now listen to these CDs very often while Averi is playing before bed or having her pre-bed meal.

3rd shift house-wife?

Yep, that was me.

Pete started working 3rd shift right after we got married. I did not want to be on an opposite schedule of my new husband so I tried to stay on his sleep schedule as much as possible. I am SO grateful I got to do that when I could (aka, pre-baby) and glad Pete was on board with me doing that too. I felt like I could keep myself fairly busy but I definitely did have some extra time on my hands at times. Here is one project I worked on a lot in the wee hours while I listened to books on tape, sermons, old time radio shows, etc.

I "finished" it a couple days ago. There is supposed to be more (a background...) but I don't know that I would have put in the many more hours it would have taken to finish it "completely". It was one of those projects that I would work on a lot sometimes then not work on it for days/weeks/months etc...

Now to get it framed!
