I Have the CRUD! BLECK!



I have the CRUD. BLECK!! I have been fighting this thing since Saturday! It’s a tough one. Thankfully I am starting to feel a bit better. My throat isn’t as sore anymore but the old nose still doesn’t want to play nice. :/  I haven’t sewn a single thing since last Saturday and I haven’t written a single study unit since… I can’t remember. LOL  I just wanted to let you all know that I still here, just trying to get better.

We have a lot of Birthdays this month! YAY!! Cailey will be 9 on the 23rd, I will be ** on the 25th and Colin will be 6 on the 31st! LOL  On the 5th Deanna just couldn’t take the strain anymore and gave me my Birthday present from her. It was a $50 Visa card! YIPPPEEE!! It came with strict instructions to use it on myself and ONLY myself. 😉 So, I bought books. LOL I got Tim Gunn’s Fashion Bible, Fashion Design Course and Shadows (Ashes Trilogy, Bk 2).  I have been reading the first 2 off and on since I got them. I LOVE Tim Gunn! His book is not only informative but hilarious!!! I never realized how much I already knew about fashion history, but I guess since I love history it shouldn’t be that big of a surprise… LOL I have already learned a lot from the Tim Gunn book AND the Fashion Design book. I am SOOOOO glad I got them!!!

I have to mention that I already have my present from Joshua, too. LOL He gave it to me at the beginning of the month. He got me The Calling (Darkness Rising, Bk 2).

I have realized that my kids are just like me, they can’t hold onto a present once they have it. LOL

OH!! Project Run & Play has the theme list up for their All Stars season!!! Looks like it will be a lot of fun! I already have a few ideas running through my head and I plan to sew along again! 🙂


Hopefully I will be kicking this crud to the curb soon and will have some new stuff for you. I might try to work on some unit studies today and see what I can come up with. Wish me luck!!







What Have I Been Up to Lately

Well, to be honest, not much. LOL I haven’t felt well the past 2 days so I haven’t done much of anything. :/ Including blogging! Yes, I am a very bad blogger, again….. 😦


But today I made myself go pick up the books that were on hold for me at the library. Here are the books I picked up!

Another amazing book!! Oh my goodness!!!!!


I have also made some decisions about how will homeschool this year. I keep going back and forth on the unschooling vs. the way we have been schooling… I have decided to keep on the way we have been with math and language and to unschool all other topics. That way it helps me keep control in some areas and lets them have control in others. I still may go back and forth…. LOL I just don’t know!! I am soooo confused!!!! I like the thought of unschooling but I just don’t know if it would work for my kids…


And will someone please remind me to call the lady at the social services dept. I need to ask if it’s OK if we put Bibles in the bags.  I keep forgetting to call and ask.

OH! I saw a great meme the other day that reminded me of myself…. LOL

I *think* the image comes from Mommy Has A Potty Mouth but I couldn’t swear to it…


I joined Twitter!!! YAY!! I am still trying to figure it all, though… 😉 I added the Twitter button over on the side somewhere so click it and follow along! 😉

I have all the fabric cut for the McCall’s M6553, I just need the gumption to get sewing on it!!! Fingers crossed that tomorrow is a better day!!! Then I need to sew more bags for Bags of Hope and Love ❤. Then I will get started on some of the designs I have been sketching!! That will mean new tutorials! YAY!!! 🙂
