Border Skirmish IV

The family went to Illinois this weekend for Border Skirmish, it was pretty good. We got to the hotel at around 12:30a and the girls didn't settle down and sleep until 3ish, so little sleep was had. T fought well, Northshield crushed the Middle Kingdom. I bought some color books to copy for the kids to have some period-esque coloring sheets. I also got some pretty cards for my card weaving loom for after I've learned and they then look more period than big white cardboard cards and I got a little satchel filled with Baking Soda, Borax and Cinnamon scent for T's armour bag. We went to court, it was good, the girls got restless so we left a little early. I spent a big chunk of the day with EKat, a very nice lady that I'm excited to see at WW, I got a lot of chatting in with people, that was nice. We left for home later than we would have liked and had dinner at Steak n' Shake, We were officially on the road by 8p and were home by 12:30a, unloaded the kids and went to bed. Sunday, we spent in Hudson and home, spending too much money at Target, Fleet Farm, County Market, and "Time to Sew". We're buying stuff to prepare for WW, I'm going to make the monkeys diaper covers for if it gets too hot and hubby and I are going to be making a quick shade fly.

Sorry no pics were taken on my end, we were in a bad place to take pics of the fighting and I was so busy with the monkeys that I just never thought of it.


I'm sooo EXCITED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Today I received in the mail....
[dum dum daaaaaaa]

That is my letter saying I'm officially Sorcha Bhuidhe in the SCA, yippie. And that I got my blazon okayed too was awesome, there is some slight tweaking but with out that it looks like this,

I'll be posting the corrected soon, if I can figure out how it's wrong and how I should fix it.


A whole jumble of things

I finished my first pair of adult socks ever this morning, they are wonderful. Not by any means perfect, but none the less wonderful. I'll have pics when my Hubby comes home with the camera, it's of course in the van with him at work. They need a good washing anyway, I'm going to have to look up the directions for Sockotta.

I some how missed the coming out of the newest Kushiel Legacy book, so I promptly looked at the library website, no where in the system, so I purchased a discounted one off of Amazon. Now I probably shouldn't have because we just dropped just under $100 on books at B&N in Maplewood, one book for each girl, three for me (one knitting), and four for the hubby, oye. Anyway I should thank Julie for being so kind as to let me know that it was out on her blog, I need to stay up on these things you know.

T was gone last week, he seems to have had a good time, lots of good camp time. He said he wished the fighting had some things different but the time he spent in camp was great. I wish I could have gone but the monkeys aren't big enough and there is no convincing T that he maybe should wait until the kids are older instead of leaving me home with them from Tuesday thru Saturday. But whatever.

T got home and a 1/2 hour later I was off to go see Pirates at the theatre, I went to the 11:30p showing and got home by 4:15a, my friend Rach and I chatted for over an hour after the movie, it was great, but we need to find better times to have chat marathons. :D

Oh and let me swoon, yummy on the Johnny Depp is delicious.

And just for those who would like to know, this is the knitting book that I got yesterday.


I'm going to see this tomorrow

Daily BullShit

Not much going on here, I'm just very frustrated with children, the last few days have made me question my choices to become a parent. Let's just say the word naughty doesn't cover it. Well, someone is screaming, so I have to go take care of that.


Of course, I write this and than go over to Annie's page and feel like an ass, I really should just be happy we're all healthy and alive and not dealing with such traumas. I need to just suck it up, but somedays it seems like that really is a unrealistic goal.



Happy Birthday Rachel!!! How's it feel to be 29?? You got some wicked cool gifts for your birthday, very awesome. No excuse now when it comes to sewing :D.


I'm going to a concert, EEEE!!!

I get to go see Gwen Stefani tonight and I'm so excited. It's even free tickets, thank you family for being involved in the entertainment biz. Now, what to wear. shit I have ... nothing.
