Sewing, Homeschooling and Craziness

A Question for My Readers


I was reading a post at another blog this morning (You Know It Happens At Your House Too) and it got me to thinking. 😉 What do YOU as my readers want to see?? I know that tutorials are a HUGE factor. In fact when I do a new tutorial my views go WAY up but when it has been a while since I have posted a new tutorial my views go WAY down. *sniff sniff* And I am at a loss as to what to write if I DON’T have a new tutorial. Does that make sense??? Sooooo, what DO you want to see?

Do you like it when I post about the crazy things my kids do? Like what Cailey said at church on Sunday that almost brought the house down?? LOL

I know Carol likes to see my cats. LOL 😉

Is just talking to you enough or should I make a bigger effort to always include some sewing/crafting/homeschooling??

Does my blog look OK?? Or should I look into changing it up some? I know the “look” of a blog can make a difference sometimes.

I am soooo new to all of this that I just really don’t know. So I thought it would be best to put it to the experts, YOU! You are the readers, you know what you want to see and read, so let me know!! Seriously, I LOOOOOOVE comments (as long as they are nice to me LOL). And even if you are criticizing me, as long as it isn’t ugly, I want to read it!! Talk to me, people!! LOL

 

If you DO want to read about what’s going on in my life, please proceed past this point. 😉 If not, you can stop here. LOL

 

For 2 Sundays in a row I have stood up in front of church to talk about Bags of Hope and Love ❤. I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO not a good public speaker…. Now, that being said, it would probably have been better if I had known BEFORE hand that I was going to speak. Well, OK, maybe not… I am THAT bad of a public speaker… LOL

Anyway, my pastor has been doing a series on missional living. So every Sunday he has been inviting different groups within the church to speak about their mission services. Last Sunday the GAs were invited to speak. They had just had a sleepover at the church where they packed boxes for Operation Christmas Child and then made breakfast for the church the next morning. The girls went up on stage and were supposed to sing a song they learned the night before. Well, they started out just OK… Barely singing… Sort of mumbling… You could only hear the leader of the GAs really singing. So when they were finished the pastor asked them to try again and to really sing this time. So, they started again.. More mumbling, barely singing. Then the pastor joined in! When they finished he said something about how they should sing louder or something like that, just picking at them, mind you. Then Cailey pipes up and says, “I thought were doing just fine until you ruined it.” Oh, brother!!! If everyone didn’t already know that she belongs to me I would have tried crawling under a pew!!! LOL But our pastor is used to her…. ummm…. outspokenness??? and he thinks it’s great that. SIGH… I just never know WHAT she’s gonna say next…. Afterward everyone commented about how good it was that she keeps him on his toes! LOL

 

We had to take our pool down. WAH!!!!!! We were unable to get a compatible pump and it turned neon green!!! YUCK!!!!! So, we took it down and will try again next year. I’m a little sad about that. I LOVED the pool!!!!

 

We are gearing up to start school week after next. WHAT??? WEEK AFTER NEXT???? YILES!!!!! That’s …..um…..SOON!!!! Good grief! Where has the summer gone??? And more important, can we get it back???? PLEASE!!!! I guess I need to solidify some real plans, huh??? Usually by this time I have all their planners filled out for at least 6 wks. I am SOOOOOO behind!!! I did try to talk the kids into doing a Jan-Sept school year but they all declined. 😦

So, note to self : GET BUSY PLANNING!!!!!! YILES!!!!

Anyone have any fun plans for the long weekend??? As far as I know we only have a Birthday party to go to Saturday. I’m going to try to talk The Hubby into cooking out at some point. Gosh, we are sooooo boring! LOL

I’m a little bit miffed… I just saw that Craft Wars didn’t tape to my DVR last night!!!! GRRR!!! Instead it looks like The Hubby taped a bunch of  UFC stuff…. GRRRR!!! I was sooooo looking forward to watching today!! It’s the only thing that makes waiting for Project Runway on Thursdays bearable!

Yep, I’m definitely booooooring….. LOL

In sewing news, I have actually started on the McCall’s M6553, and it looks GREAT so far!! I am so glad I decided to color block the front!! It’s going to look awesome!!!! After that I will be working on some things for fall from my sketches. SO excited about that!! YAY!!

 

So, that’s what’s up with me. What’s up with you?? And PLEASE answer my questions!! I reallllllllllllllllly want to know!!! 🙂
