- 1-16-2017: My 3 year old son was playing with my boobs. I told him to stop and that it was not nice to play with other people’s boobs. His response. You’re not other people you are mommy!
- 1-18-2017: My 3 year old son comes running into the bedroom screaming I need help. I just look up at him and before I can say anything he said I am not talking to you, I need daddy!
- 1-29-2017: On the way to the store my 3 year old got mad. Said he couldn’t ride his motorcycle because it was broken. I asked him what was wrong with it and he told me it was out of gas.
- 1-29-2017: My 3 year old runs into the room and gives me a big hug and I tell him I love him. He starts shaking his butt and asked if I loved his baby butt too.
Created.By.Meggan: I am super excited! I decided I really want to try a craft show. So I started making items for it. 1st item being a multi blue circular vest. I posted it to Facebook and let everyone know the price and that they could custom order in any color. I got an order. It is the first official sell of all (and 2017). I am hoping that means 2017 holds for great success!
Family Drama: My husbands aunt begged us to sell them an old car we had. So we agreed to sell it to them. They asked my husband to tow it to a mechanics shop where the guy told them what was wrong and they decided they didn’t want to buy it. They racked up a bill having it looked at and now doesn’t want to pay it so we can get the car back. So we told them they needed to bring us back the car or pay for it before they could have their rv back. They are now talking about having us put in jail for not giving it back. We don’t want it just the car they claimed to buy! It is sad to try and help family out and they take advantage of it. It made a good day go to the dumps real fast!
I spent all weekend on it and I have to say it wasn’t easy. I am not experienced at crocheting so I had lots of (un) crocheting going on! The original showed for different color yarns but I wanted to see it in a solid color and I really like how it looks. If you are needing a pattern I would recommend checking out this one!
Craft: I am on row 30 of 32 of the circular vest I am crocheting. I needed a break but hoping to finish it tomorrow. Once I finish it I will take pictures and post it (along where I got the pattern from.) I have to say I really like it so far!
TV Series: I am on season 6 of 11 of Criminal Minds. Yes I have been binge watching all day long. That is when I can get my son to watch Agent Oso in his room instead!
Special Packages: I got in both my daughters books from college! Thank goodness for Amazon!! I also got in the crochet hooks from WISH. I love getting packages in!
Family Tree: Going to work on Family Tree some more tonight.
I hope everyone is having a great weekend!
Health: I found a similar ankle brace at Walmart for $15 instead of purchasing the one at the doctor for $50. I think I over walked today because my foot was hurting me like crazy!
Crochet: I purchased the yarn to crochet a circular vest. I worked on it for a little bit tonight with the wrong size hook, but I got the hang of the beginning part. Now I can take it out and do it right. I am hoping it comes out great. I have had a few people interested in purchasing some, but want to make sure I could do it before I committed to it.
Yesterday I finished the sugar skulls and sewed the ribbon for the mouth. I just need to finish the ribbon flowers for the eyes. The last step will be crocheting the chain and the garland will be finished.
Weight Loss: I bought a scale today and I will buy the tennis shoes tomorrow. I plan to weigh and measure myself first thing in the morning. Since I have another long day of shopping tomorrow I will wait till Monday to start at the gym. I don’t want to over work my foot.
2017 is starting to look up for me and hoping that it will keep getting better!
My son pulls up on his motorcycle and the engines revs “Vroom Vroom”. He asked me if I wanted to take a ride. Who can resist such a precious face? So he backs his motorcycle up to me and I put my hands around his waist. He told me to hold on tight because he doesn’t want to lose me. So I link my fingers together and hold on tight!
We lean to the left and then lean to the right. The motor constantly revving, “Vroom Vroom”. It is the best motorcycle ride ever, but then something happens…
He decides it is more important to wear a seat belt than to give his mommy a ride. So one arm stays around the waist as the other crosses over his shoulder. He refuses to start the motorcycle up until he hears the click of the seat belt. Once he hears “Click” off he goes again.
I love his imagination and love the motorcycle ride…
Health: Good News! As soon as I get an ankle brace and a new pair of tennis shoes I can start walking without the walking boot. He said if I have to walk for extended periods or if my foot starts hurting to use my boot. Other than that I can use the brace, but I can not walk bare footed. He also gave me the green light to go back to the gym! Makes me happy!
Crochet: I have the base of all the skulls needed for my sugar skull garland. I just need to embellish them and make the chain. I am hoping to get it finished by Sunday. I also may have two circle vest to make, I am just charging for the yarn since it is family and I haven’t done one yet. Waiting to find out if they still want me to make it or not. If not I am going to see if my daughter wants one so I can still make one.
Taxes: I received my W2 today and filed my taxes (no need sitting on that!) Hopefully will get the money by mid Feb. Just don’t tell my husband I plan on spending a nice little portion on yarn! I found a website to get 4 pounds for $10. I wanted to purchase a few of those and see how I like the selection!
Blog: If you haven’t noticed I revised the way my blog was set up. I think I am happy with it (for now). So plan to put my poetry back on it.
House: I need to focus on doing some house work. So in between checking out blogs and embellishing my sugar skulls, I will be doing laundry and general cleaning.
I hope you had a great Thursday!
Family Tree: I am starting to get some organization to the family tree books. I wanted to share it on my blog since it is a huge time consuming project. Trying to update per post was getting to much so I decided to make pages. If you are interested you can click here for the books I am actively working. Each book links to chapters.
WISH: I received another item on Wish. It was 10 rolls of tape, mostly Paris theme. It kind of makes me want my daughter to choose a Paris theme for the baby’s room if it is a girl! I was hoping my crochet hooks would come in, but it is nice to get packages periodically!
Health: Tomorrow I go to the doctor to see if I can get out of the walking boot. Hopefully he says it is ok and that I can get back into the gym. I have a lot of excess weight I need to shed as soon as possible.
Facebook Pay It Forward: I want to put together 5 gift baskets. I am brainstorming what all I want to go in it. I am thinking a mixture of crochet and baked good items. I haven’t mailed baked goods through the mail before and not sure what is good to send. If you have good suggestions on what holds good through the mail please let me know.
My husband’s niece is pregnant and if she has a little girl she wants to do a Sugar Skulls theme.
I want to make her some items to go with the theme and here is what I found. If you know of any other’s please comment below.
