One of My Favorite Holidays....

Happy Halloween All!!!

May your baskets be filled with goodies and may your homes decor be egg/toilet paper free :D.

My munchkins will be a Princess, a Pumpkin Witch, a Dragon/Dinosaur, and a Puppy. Too cute.


Something new on the blog...

I've recently started an account at Shelfari, and if anyone is interested in signing up please add me as a friend. I have an account at LibraryThing as well. I'm currently not sure which I will stick with, we'll have to see. So like I said in the title of this post, there is something new to the blog. At the very bottom there is a bookshelf with some of my books that I own on it. Please take a gander if you feel so inclined.


Bad Monkey, no cookie :(

Sorry I've been such a bad blogger this month, I've been in kind of a rut. I don't really want to do anything but runaway. I think this whole being a parent, thankless job, thing is starting to really get to me and now the whole hunting season is about to start. I don't begrudge hubby being gone, we need the meat he hunts for, but I don't like being home alone and although he only mostly works and comes home, he still leaves these walls everyday for a period of time. I tend to completely whole up when he isn't home, I mean I have four friggin kids where am I to go by myself and either not worry about losing a child or being completely overwhelmed because god-forbid they listen to their mother. And to add insult to injury, I feel like a freak by all the people staring at me, not helping, just staring like I'm about to pop another one out any second. "man that looks like a lot of work" really, you think just maybe, hmm, just a little bit.


I'm stopping myself now, the vent is more than enough and tomorrow morning I may just delete most of it but I need to get some of it off my chest. And before any of you mention it I do realize T was left at home for 7 weekends in a row with the kids, but I will have every day of the week and every weekend until the middle/end of December with them. So a few weekends is really not that big of a deal.


Stopping again, definately have my period, (first day this cycle) and it's all coming out with my sleep deprivation, oye. Again Sorry about this and next post will hopefully have some knitting content, I'm almost done with Se's socks, so cute.


The BIG ONE!!!!

Happy Birthday Se, welcome to the world of years not just months. I love you.

You are crawling on all fours, standing, almost walking, have 8 teeth (4 top, 4 bottom), laugh when you see people for the first time of the day including your sisters, really get a kick out of Ju, have a great belly laugh when your tickled or even when you're not, you're very ticklish, you can say mama, papa, dada, you eat everything (except broccoli), you fill your mouth way to fast, you love texture, especially soft stuff, you're goofy and above all Mommy loves you.


I'm alive and I have FOs

Okay, I'm still not quite up to par from the weekend but I'm alive and "well". I've been pretty busy with Ren faire and family life. I've got two finished objects for you so hopefully that will appease the need for a long blog, I'm too tired to write too much, sorry.
