Crap, Crud, AWWWW and Insane

What a title! LOL

First the crap! I completely forgot that today is Tuesday… The day we were going to join a realllly cool homeschooling co-op. Every time The Hubby has a 4 day weekend it throws me completely off. So all day today I was thinking that we were going TOMORROW… SIGH…. There’s always next week. *singing if I only had a brain* Any bets on whether or not I’ll remember for next week???

Now the crud! I cut out alllll the pieces for the Retro Butterick ’56, including ALL 6 pieces of the skirt. Yes, that is 6 pieces! for a skirt! LOL Only to realize that I can’t cut the lining because someone forgot that she was out of lining material. SIGH…….. Gee, I guess that means I have to go out to the fabric store tomorrow. What a hardship! 😉

This is c2. He is the he. c1 is the she. 😉


Aren’t they cute??? Well, they are pretty sweet, too. c2 says to me, “Mommy, you are so fluffy and poofy! You smell like oranges! You are beautiful and I love you!” AWWW!!!!! Totally makes up for the whiny spell he had earlier. 😉

Insane – Me to The Hubby, “May I have some of those Cheetos?” c2 to me, “Here, mommy, try the puffy kind.” Me, “No, thank you. I don’t like the puffy kind.” c2, “Mommy, you must have the insane!”  ROFLOL!!!! Yes. I do have the insane. LOL

So, that’s all for today, folks! See you tomorrow!!

Don’t forget to click to follow, PLEASE!
