My stomach still hates me. So far today I’ve eaten toast and 5hrs later some peanut butter crackers. I just gave up and ate a few bites of spaghetti & meatballs & garlic bread because I am so hungry and it’s all hurting me so I may as well eat. I’ve also been sucking down gatorade. This may or may not be helping. At all. I’m going to lay on the couch and test...
People! “Your” = something belonging TO YOU. “You’re” = a conjunction of “you” and “are”, something YOU ARE doing/saying/feeling/etc.
I called my childhood pediatrician’s office TWICE Thurs. Once Fri just for shits & giggles and already once today. Apparently NO ONE EVER works in their medical records department. And though I’ve left messages this non-existant person especially will not return my phone call because I’m long distance. I just need to know if it was noted in my medical record that I had...
What I really *want* to do is go to the Goodwill and buy XL men’s dress shirts and M men’s dress shirts and turn them into skirts and dresses for me and Hannah. Also, I want to eat ALL OF THE REST of my mexican food from last night. But I can’t do either of it today so I guess we’ll go have a nap upstairs and lay on my bed and I’ll read the kids some more of the...
I don’t take the heat very well. I’m glad I no longer live in Florida. We spent 6hrs outside yesterday at the waterpark, which was the most fun ever, but by the 5th hour I had retreated to a lounge chair under an umbrella which sort of killed hubby’s fun (but not quite) because both kids wanted to run in opposite directions (hehe). I reapplied sunscreen on all of us about 7x...
I thought it would be pretty for me to bead this Holden Shawlette while I’m knitting it. I’m 6 beads in to the first row I’d planned to bead and already I’m sick of it. I’ve never really beaded anything, and I’ve never worked with lace weight yarn before so both are firsts. I am terribly slow at beading. Using the dental-floss method since I chose little...
annmarie-wigglesworth I saw your quilt post
and if I ever get 10 spare minutes when I’m not exhausted or snuggling some exhausted child I will figure out what I’d charge to quilt that (full size?) quilt for you. You said you had batting and backing? And can you send me the quilt measurements in inches? K thanks, Bye! -Des
Whatever stomach bug Tony and Jeremiah had last night caught up with me at 7 am. Not the way I wanted to spend the first 2hrs of my day! Actually, I planned on spending those exact 2hrs sleeping. Makes me a little nervous because that means Hannah’s probably going to get it. Poor baby. I need to go to Knoxville to Parkwest Hospital and get a copy of my medical records and drop them and...
Happily the sale of the spinner’s lap quilt gave me enough pay pal money to buy a skein of lime green merino/tencel sock yarn I had in my etsy faves!! Diagon Alley socks here I come!
I am the worst mother. Hannah told me she was sleepy. I told her she had to brush her teeth & take her medicine. She left thr room, I finished cutting off my skirt. She’s apparently in her bed, asleep.
Also, how the hell many times in one night can a kid say something or someone is “Epic.” For realz. DO you even know what epic is?! Also, I had one of those huge layered wrinkly skirts. I cut the bottom 2 layers off. It’s much better now.
I shouldn’t complain. Really. I did manage to do all the dishes, cook dinner, wash a load of laundry, clean out my closet, make the kids’ beds, make a batch of chocolate chip cookies from scratch and sew together and list that spinner’s lap quilt. But seriously… I know it’s awful, but I probably could’a gotten the kids to just watch TV all day so I could do...
OMG WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU
My sister Veronica is 13 FREAKING YEARS OLD. I had her spend the night tonight because I needed some help with the kids today because I had a ton of stuff to get done. I’ve gotten done about HALF of it because I have had to YELL every 3 minutes at some kid. My kids or her. They are all SO rowdy. Running, yelling, bouncing around on beds, screaming, throwing balls, FIGHTING OVER BOARD...
Jeremiah (to Veronica): What’s the capital of Texas? Veronica: Houston. Jeremiah (cackles with laughter): Nope! AUSTIN! Veronica: I was close!! Me: No, you weren’t. Veronica: THEY RHYME! Clearly a “your argument is invalid!” type converstaion.
Tumblr! Y u delete all my comments on posts? U mad?!
Counters wiped, spinners’ cloth sewn, dishes washed, laundry washed, pictures taken, chips & salsa greedily consumed.
At least I got somethin' done
I managed to make a custom order I got last week for a “spinner’s lap quilt”. I love how it turned out! Click on the pic above to see the listing and the details.
Looking for a good place to eat around Corbin/Williamsburg/Jellico Kentucky area. Wanting to stay away from food chains. Any ideas?
Mom looks just like me. When I take the Compass test the ppl at school will have met me a total of 1x. She refuses to take it 4 me. Bitch
My e-mail got hacked! I don’t understand this. It’s never happened before. I NEVER open e-mails from people I don’t know. I never open attachements unless I’m expecting one. But my e-mail started at 7:59pm e-mailing everyoen in my address book. What do I do about this?
Dinner was delicious. I grilled steaks, garlic bread and corn on the cob and doctored up some boxed mac & cheez. Now that I’m done I need to go work on a spinner’s lap cloth someone special requested thru my etsy shop. : ) What I really want to do is shower me and then the kids and work on algebra. OMG did I just say that?
I gave up on the test. I’ll work on it some more later. I have a list of words to look up in my dictionary to brush up on my vocab a little since though it was my best subject, let’s face it. 8 yrs is a long time. I did very well at math my frist 3 yrs of highschool—I took consumer math which was real, applicable math. Took Algebra 1 my senior year and sucked balls at it,...
My head is hurting me so badly tonight that I think I’m going to die. And my kids won’t be quiet for a minute.
Sitting here taking a practice SAT test from the book I got today… trying not to burst into tears on the fact that I could only get thru the first 10 math questions and I only got 3 of those right. At least I did OK on the critical writing. Only 6 wrong out of 33.
Tacos for dinner tonight will be ready in a minute. I’ve cut up all the requisite veggies for them already. Steaks for tomorrow night are marinating in the fridge along side some corn on the cob which is soaking in salt water in preparation for its toss on the grill tomorrow night. Sighs. Content.

This morning we went to Walmart and bought Jeremiah and Tony new swimming trunks, a disposable waterproof camera (cause that’s how I roll) and sunscreen for our trip to Kentucky on Monday. I love saying that. “Our trip to Kentucky.” Because WTF, no one really goes to Kentucky for anything recreational. It’s Kentucky. For reals. Then we came back home, packed Tony off...
I am so flipping excited! Tony actually has Monday off. My husband has a day off! OMG. He wants to take the kids up to Kentucky Splash, which is a water park about an hour north of us. I looked it up online and not only do they have the water park stuff (which seems to be smaller than say, Adventure Island in FL that I used to go to, but still!) they have go karts, mini golf and batting...
To go to college I have to go get the chicken pox vaccine. Which will of course simultaneously give my children the chicken pox. Which will make our lives hell. I can’t even bear the thought of my poor kids covered in chicken pox. I remember having them when I was six and wishing I could die. And I have to go obtain a copy of my medical record from when I had Hannah that shows they...
Mid afternoon mash up
Laid in the sun for an hour which probably only did me the “good” of burning the top of my shoulders. Sigh. #Whitepeople Also just filled out the FAFSA application to see if I can get a grant for school. Hoping, hoping!! Hubby says when he went to the same school (8-10 yrs ago?) it was $300 a semester. Now it’s $1200. Inflation much?
I made myself a skirt today. Whenever I can afford biased tape I’m going to cut up a bright red long sleeved dress shirt that is too big on me now and make it smaller. :-D I like my marriage.
I just submitted my application for college.
OMG and it is totally epic fail TUESDAY.
