saralaughs replied to your photo: GPOYW. I didn’t sleep last night. I wanted to… Shower. It’ll help wake you, plus if you get sucked into sewing, you won’t feel like leaving later. I used a root-touch up kit on my hair and showered. I loved that hair color kit. So easy! HOWEVER… due to severe weather/tornadoes everything at church tonight got cancelled so I’m home 3 hrs...
This morning involves
Being Human (BBC version ONLY) marathon. Coffee. Helping Jeremiah with his schoolwork. Cutting out another dress for Hannah. Hopefully getting the table cleaned off enough to begin sewing a dress together.
My kids have been watching the Disney channel for...
I’m about to throw the TV on the floor. I think I’ll take my knitting upstairs with a shot of Maker’s Mark and watch the Saints again while getting the rest of the laundry off my bed. Plan.
I was going to do all the domestic things today. Finish putting up ALL the laundry. Get all the dishes done. We did get school done today already, so that’s a plus. I’m gonna make fried chicken for dinner. My plan was the spend the whole afternoon being the amazing wonderwoman 1950s housewife. But. It’s GORGEOUS OUTSIDE TODAY. SCREW IT. We’re going to the park.
ABCs of me.... why not?
A - Age: 26 B - Bed size : King C - Chore you hate: Putting up dishes/laundry. Makes me angry. Could wash all day long.

cheezepoof replied to your post: Truthful Tuesday: I suck at politics Working with women… tell me about it (I’m a nurse). I grew up with 2 brothers and I have NO IDEA how to play the ‘girly games’… not that I even have any patience for them. Hang in there! Thanks. I am definitely hanging in there for the long haul. I love my job, and I’m good at it. Last night was just particularly...
Truthful Tuesday: I suck at politics
I had a couple beers and ranted last night to Tony about my job for about an hour. I like my job. It’s simple overall. I can basically do what I want, wear what I want. They don’t give me a hard time about my nose ring or tattoos or kids. I enjoy what I do. That being said, it’s stressful. New events get added on a regular basis so it’s a continual in the back of your...
I took a shower to remove the dust and cat hair. I used allergy eye drops. I drank a glass of water and took 4 ibuprofen and 2 benadryl. We put in Horrible Bosses. I have a mindless knitting project. My toe is killing me. On Friday I accidentally ripped my toenail, too short and at a weird angle so now it’s killing me and I am panicking that it’ll heal all ingrown and I’m...
Worst headache in 2 months. Too much drywall dust and cat; not enough sleep. Need all the benedryl.
I could watch Hellboy: Golden Army every day. I love this movie. I love both of these movies. Hellboy reminds me so much of Tony it isn’t funny.
To run off of raysporch's idea
The moon is great tonight. Does anyone know what planet/star/thing is near it? It’s super, incredibly bright here. I had mentioned once to Jeremiah that I thought when we can see Venus it’s very bright, so now he assumes all bright stars are Venus. Sigh. I need to get a book. We got some at the library but they didn’t really tell us.
Discussing with my 11yr old brother, the possibility and logistics of him growing up to be a scientist and creating an actual light saber. I said that while one could build a sword like instrument equipped with a lazer that could cut through things, since light will go on forever I’m not sure there’s a way to regulated it to only be as long as a sword. I suggested he would probably...
Tired again, or just lazy?
We made pizza for dinner. Tony had bought a huge loaf of french bread and pizza fixing; pepperoni, diced ham, onions, pizza sauce and cheese… I had a leftover chicken breast in the fridge we cut up too. I let the kids decorate different sections. Hannah used leftover alfredo sauce on hers and added cheese and pepperoni. The boys both used pizza sauce, pepperoni and chicken. Jeremiah...
mysevenkids replied to your post: I’m sobering up. Bullshit. Makers Mark or Crown… Which is the higher proof? Maker’s Mark. I’m not looking for another session where I bruise my chest on the toilet seat. Just a little more fun. Crown it is.
Friday night on Tumblr… everyone in my dash is either drinking, post coitus or knitting. Yep.
I’m sobering up. Bullshit. Makers Mark or Crown Royal?
I'm a light weight
2.5 beers. I have to stop now. Or I’ll hurl. I think. I finally drank enough that for the first time, a few weeks ago, I was epically sick. I never want to be drunk again. Time to stop. I’m tipsy enough to have a good time. And as soon as Jeremiah goes to sleep, a very good time.
BudLight Platinum is more alcohol by volume than regular BudLight. I cut out a ruffly dress for Hannah, entirely by myself, from an actual pattern. It was terrifying.
It's official. I'm useless.
Apparently my brand of PMS has changed from random something different every month to apathy and lack of energy; general sloth like behavior if you will. Both sinks are piled of full of dishes. I needed a shower last night but was too tired and I haven’t managed to take one yet today so I’m lounging in my own filth like a crack head. I made dinner. There’s that. Leftover pot...
Cleaned out from under the couch, sorta. Need to sweep again now. Did not find Hannah’s MP3 player, which was the goal. My stomach hates me today. I want to hit the Goodwill and see about getting some more shirts to make Hannah some summer dresses out of. I’d also really, really love to have a nap. I’m in my so-tired phase of the moon again apparently. Every day lately. ...
There is so much random going on in my living room
Jeremiah: Oh I get it, so he sends the owl to Sirius? (then immediately:)
Jeremiah: You know, I really like that movie "You've Got Mail".
Hannah: How about French?! *takes off socks*
Hannah: You are kind, you are smart, you are important.
Jeremiah wants me to knit the Dealthy Hallows symbol from the kitchen towel into the side of the hat I’m going to knit him. :-/ I don’t see the point in a wool hat with holes. Do I give in?
hemigrrrl replied to your photo: A baby sweater I’ve knit for my upcoming… Adorable! Where did you get the pattern from? It’s called Cascade and it’s a great pattern but I used some mods I found on Ravelry
I am sleepy. I am tired. I drank coffee. I’m drinking tea. I’m still sleepy. I’m still tired. I am not a morning person. I stayed up til 2am. I was already dreading my 8:45 alarm and people began texting me about the employee evaluation meetings at 7:45. SEVEN FORTY FIVE?! CAN YOU IMAGINE?! I had a 10am appointment for a follow up with my allergist who suggested I try...
bekaboo replied to your photo: A baby sweater I’ve knit for my upcoming… Could you please be any more talented? Does it run in the family or what? This is so stinkin’ cute!!! LOL! Thank you! I needed that tonight! It does run in the family, but only because my Mom is wonder woman and has so much creative talent she had to teach it to us or burst. She still may burst. I knit the...
Some people need a high five.
In the face. With a chair.
I am one big ball of complain today. Trying to stay positive. Got half the bathroom bleached.
My house is never going to get clean. I’m drowning. Hannah’s eyes have been broken out, red, crusty and puffy around for a week. Dermatologist gave some ointment and advice and said no more nail polish; period. Hannah started crying that now she won’t be fancy. It was pitiful. The kids and I roamed around Maryville, briefly today. We stopped by to see Mom and took her the...
knitsophrenic replied to your photo: My kitchen now has a red-ish Deathly Hallows… Where is this pattern?? I NEED one or 6 of these!! I found it some how on Ravelry but the actual link to the pattern is here. It’s for a square cloth. I knit it square, and then continued the garter stitch, decreasing at the beginning and end of each row until I got down to 6 stitches which I worked...
