Lydia Underfoot Oldencia, June 2008 - October 2009

It's a sad day. Our dog of 1 year and a bit had to be euthanized. Please if you disagree don't comment, I don't care what you think, this was a choice that was already hard to make. I really fell in love with this dog, she was so sweet and happy. Even when she wasn't feeling well she would try to make me happy. She had a blockage in her small intestine that wouldn't pass in either direction and we could not afford to get it fixed. Our children come first and with the slow season in housing, hubby's work could be way less, and that money was just not available. It sucks and I hate it, I miss her already. I will miss her 15 minute crazy runs and her click clacking nails on the linoleum. I will miss her being so good as I trimmed and dremeled her toe nails to make her look pretty. I'll miss her hair everywhere and her way she looked at you with her loving very expression-filled eyes. She was a wonderful dog and I miss her so much and I hate that I couldn't do  her. I love you Lydia, enjoy the Summerlands.


A long overdue update, maybe I'll have some knitting for the next one....

Well, it has been crazy busy around here. Masters school is taking up most of my time, we have three weddings to attend in the coming weeks. Next weekend is our last weekend without concrete plans for one of the days. Mostly because we can't afford to do anything. The three weekends after that are weddings, good I didn't work Renaissance Faire this year, I guess.

Best girlfriend had her 29th birthday on Sunday, so we took the kids, sans T, to the Renaissance Faire, it was interesting. My bosses there brought me some unprocessed wool, I'm scared to open the bag because its taken all summer to get to me. If it's no good what should I do with it???

T just got done working three weeks of 2nd shift, it has been very trying, especially on my homework time. I have had a hard time getting things done when the kids tend to be their naughtiest in the evening. So studying time is hard when hubby isnt home to help or let me leave.

Ju is in school now, full time kindergarten, she is loving it. Her second day of school she had to get tubes in her ears and missed school but other than that it has been great. Early to get up, but still great. She loves loves loves school and riding the bus and all of it, I truly hope she never loses that love.

Tweedles Ro and Ra are in pre-school twice a week now too They're first day was yesterday and they seemed to have a great time. They both gave me big hugs when they were done, it was awesome. Tomorrow more school for them, hopefully the morning will run smoother than it did this morning. We had a rough start. I'm leaving it at that.

This weekend hopefully we will have some time and motivation to clean the garage, I hope it all works out, the garage needs it and I think we do to. I plan to put a lock on the cupboard today and clean up some of my crafting area, which includes moving some things around from our room down to the basement, we will see if any of it actually gets done.

Just updated the fridge calendar, hopefully that will help keep us organized.

Well that is I think everything for now. Take care to all of you, or at least the one that reads here.


Dragon eggs that need the clicking love.

How adventurous are you in your color choices?
You boldly buy any color you come across! You couldn’t pinpoint one major color in your stash, because you love them all! Let’s find an anchor color for your preferences. Having a wide range of color preferences is good because it gives you a very open palette. The downside is that it can often be hard to make sense of the colors in your stash and pair them up in a pleasing way.

I can agree on that. Except forthe pairing part, the color choice isnt my problem, its my perfectcolor vision, I can see the difference between dye lots so its hard forcolors for me in that sense.
