Being sick sucks...

Yes, I have been a major drag lately because I started out with a sinus infection and think now that I have pneumonia. Woo.

More soon. I am going to go crawl into a hole until it's over...

Life Keeps Me Busy!

MY! How time flies! I am getting really close to having that afghan done for my mil, thank goodness! Next I have to cast on the afghan for my dad and the hooded scarf for mommy dearest...

Jillian is doing fantastic! Can you believe her first 9 weeks of school is already over??? Am I the only one still having such problems with her being in kindergarten?? She is coming up on testing again...this time it is for her Blue Belt.

Gracie is awesome and spunky as usual! She still loves going to Little Gym but she is desperate to go to school...but I am just not quite ready to let go yet. Jill didn't go to preschool until she was almost 4! She got a new tricycle yesterday so she is happy for now.

I am doing well...tired as always and drowning in an endless sea of laundry but what do you do? I am getting ready to start planting for spring. I want to make our yard a butterfly zone...I think it will be fun. My computer monitor bit the big one over night...I am currently using my husband's computer...joy. More bills!

Blanket for MIL

Well, I decided to knit lots of gifts for Christmas this year and WOW! did I bight off more than I could chew! Below is the first picture of an afghan I am knitting for my MIL...she is a saint so she will truly appreciate the time and effort behind it.

Other than that everything is par for the course around here. Jillian is running a fever, I have a vicious cold and Gracie is bouncing off the walls! I am ordering pizza and a cinnamon swirl thingy and that will cover lunch, dinner and dessert.

I need to get knitting on the rest of my gifts!

Long Weekend is OVER!

As much as I know how important long weekends are to those who work outside the home...I sort of dread them. I am a stay at home mom, very proud to be one. I get to witness everything in my children's lives...whether I want to see it or not. Thankfully my kids are only 5 and 3 so they aren't doing overly crazy stuff yet. So, back to 3 day weekends, the inevitably mean more work for ME! An extra day that everyone is home and usually extra house quests on some level. I made 3 extra trips to the grocery store, one more to the liquor store and had to reclean everything for our dinner guests Saturday. Not for them...mostly for my own pride but still. I was thrilled when my oldest had to go to school this morning and my husband had to scoot off to work! Some free time! (with my younger daughter Gracie of course!)

I took Jillian to school and "dropped" her off with the volunteers so she was able to walk in all by herself! AH! Growing up so fast!

Here's my younger daughter from her party!
