I needed to take a shower this morning, so I let Ben choose a show to watch (Thomas), double-checked the stairway gate, and hopped in. Pretty soon I could hear him running around and playing. Good! Then I heard him … Continue reading
I have high hopes for 2011. Here are a few of my goals (best to put them down in writing, don’t you think?): – Create a more peaceful, more joyful home. I’ll be referring to Christine Carter’s book and blog, … Continue reading
I actually have several drafts started, but instead I’m just going to write a silly little post, because I want to, and to get back into the swing of things, hopefully. I’ve missed writing! It’s amazing how little time I … Continue reading
[Just a warning before you start reading: this is long and disorganized, but I needed to get some thoughts out of my head.] So, as most of you already know, I missed my due date. Yesterday was really, really stressful … Continue reading
I’m pretty sure that every single piece of baby clothing, blanket, sheet, washcloth, whatever that is in the house has been through the laundry in the last week. The nursery is painted and has a crib, a changing table, and … Continue reading
The nesting urge has hit full force. The timing is excellent, though, because I’m home alone today and tomorrow and will have lots of time to get things done. Poor Dan has to work overtime today (though, I’m not complaining … Continue reading
I was involved in a hit-and-run crash today on my way to work. It was fairly minor – at first, I thought I had run over an exposed man hole cover (there is ongoing construction on this particular road, which … Continue reading
Well, as close as I’m going to get for now. I had to give up my nap to do it, but all of the dishes are washed, dried, and put away. The first floor is vacuumed. The last load of … Continue reading
I’m a volunteer docent at Anderson Gardens, the top-rated Japanese garden in North America. My first shift of the season happened to fall on my birthday this year. And since a beautiful new Canon PowerShot SD1100 IS was my birthday … Continue reading
I know. It’s been over four months since I last wrote anything here. I know. But there’s a really good reason for that.
Just days after my last post, I found out that I’m having a baby!
I voted for the environment. I voted for the economy. I voted for science. I voted for the rights and dignity of every American man, woman, and child. I voted for America’s standing in the international community. I voted to … Continue reading
I bought a sewing machine a couple of weeks ago! I’m so excited. Of course, I have no idea how to use it, but that’s okay. I’ll figure it out. I watched the DVD that came with it and managed … Continue reading
I’ve had three naps in three days, but done no knitting for nearly a week. I’m sad about that, but on the other hand, it’s hard to knit when you fall asleep every time you get a chance to sit … Continue reading
My 28th birthday was yesterday [Friday - turns out I forgot to post this after it was written! Whoops!], and I had a wonderful day! I had phone calls from my whole family, including my brother, which meant that I … Continue reading
My poor little blog – I haven’t posted for over a month! And, even worse, before tonight I hadn’t done any knitting since I got home from Dallas. Between being sick twice and being addicted to solving puzzles in Professor … Continue reading
Here’s the purse I made for Mom for the wedding. I barely made it – I was sewing it up and threading the ribbon until nearly midnight. But, I was able to give it to her at the rehearsal the … Continue reading
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
I’ve been knitting like a mad woman to get the birthday/Christmas scarf finished, and I’m almost there! I’m a little concerned about having enough yarn to make it to the end, though. I’m not sure if I’m going to make … Continue reading
