While anticipating the start of the move out process from Peter's dorm, I managed a get together with my friend Jann who I used to work with at Disneyland. We re-connected via Facebook, and joined this Obama group about having to sleep well at night since he's president, and I brought up the extra Obama fleece blanket that I wanted to give away and couldn't think of a better person to give it to! So we met up at Chipotle Restaurant near Cal State Fullerton, and my son Peter joined us. Jann insisted on treating, but more than that, it was so nice to visit with her and catch up a little!
In case you're curious, I bought the Obama fleece panels on eBay, and then I went to Joanne's for the fleece backing. I used to do those tie fleece blankets, but found that it wasted the fabric and shrunk them down too much, so now I just pin the right sides together, sew up the edges leaving a opening for turning, and then turn them right side out and wipe stitch the hole. That's it. Hey, even this sewing challenged pheebe can do it!
Afterwards, Peter and I went to his dorm and he packed a few boxes for me to take home. CSUF decided that move out day for the dorms would be the same day as the college's graduation, and with the limited parking, we both dreaded how busy it would be. Peter's last final is the day before move out, so we're going to do the rest then...Peter's first year in college sure went by fast! He disagrees, however, since he's the one that had to do all the work!!
