Sick, Sick, Sick!! We are all sick. It's been a few sleepless nights for me. The baby just wants to be held all night, and threw up the night before. Bradley has had a fever, so I've been trying to monitor that and make sure it doesn't go up. Now Bradley's eye is irritated, so I'm wondering if I should take him to the doctor. Ah, the joys of motherhood. I just feel so bad for them! Jake is doing much better today. He wouldn't even get down to play yesterday, and today he's running all over the place.

I did get a little stitching done over the holiday. I finished my Mystery VI needleroll except for some beads I was missing. After I get those I'll finish it into a needleroll. :) That's all for now! Hopefully next time I write we're all feeling better!!!

Oh man, I am still trying to catch up on cleaning since we got back from Florida. It seems like the laundry is never-ending!! I got the kid's toys all organized and to them it was like they had all new toys. Everything that was sorted was dumped into a big pile. Bradley keeps saying he likes his room messy. I give up!! My dad and his wife are coming on Saturday and I have to work all this week except Christmas day, so I was trying to get things done. Oh well, I'm sure on Saturday morning I'll just be cleaning like a crazy woman, and hope they come in the afternoon.

I put colored lights on my porch railings and over my door. All my life we always had white lights, so this was a treat for me! It's pretty bright, and my neighbors may think it's tacky, but I love it. Oh and the kids do too! ;) I have been trying to get a dishcloth knitted for my stepmom. This summer she asked if I'd do a couple for her and I finished one awhile ago and messed up on another. So I'm about 1/2 way done with a new one. I had one little mess up, but I'm going to keep going. I think I'm going to be giving Sophie's Roses to a friend who's going through a hard time right now. And I've been working on Mystery VI needleroll. I think I'm going to give that to another friend. I wan't to go hobby lobby to see if I can find some organdy ribbon to make it fancy.

Well, I think I've written enough for today! Write more soon!! :)

I'm so excited!! I got a C in the class, and that is fine with me! I still have a 3.0 GPA, so I'm happy. I'm so glad I passed, that was just weighing on me like a ton of bricks. My dad also sent my some money in the mail, so today has definitely been a good day!!!! :)

Well, I went down and took my final. I'm not very happy with how I did. And I can make excuses all day (kids, work, dh, etc.), but it's all my fault, I didn't study as much as I should have. So now I'm just keeping my fingers crossed that I passed. I'll know on Friday (hopefully sooner). Keep your fingers crossed for me!!

I would've updated sooner, but it wouldn't let me! Anyways, I've just been taking care of the kids, working and studying! I'm not as stressed about my final because I found the answers and formulas to the review on the class webpage. If I would've just looked sooner it would've saved me a little stress. Oh well. I just can't wait for it to be over!!!! And I'm hoping they are giving really hard problems for the review and easy problems for the final! :) Haha!

Now that Sophie's done I decided to get my Shepherd's Bush Harvest Moon back out...

It's only been a WIP since about 1998. So I definitely would like to get it finished. I know once all this final stuff is over I'll be able to stitch more. I'm going to take a semester off and go to a "real" school in the summer or fall. That will give me time to look into a scholarship or grant and get my transcripts in. Online is nice for convenience, but I miss being in a real classroom with a real teacher!

I've got DS running around 1/2 naked. I'm really trying to get him potty trained. He's so smart, he's mastered the computer, so why can't he master the potty??? He's just stubborn. I've tried every bribe, every technique. So now I'm going to try the no pants route and see how that goes. I've got the floor cleaner on standby. Well that's all for now. I've blabbed enough!!

Oh one more thing. As you all know I count money at a grocery store. Well my mom just started today bagging groceries. It will be good for her to make extra money. She teaches art out of her home, but it's so unreliable. It's kind of weird having her work where I do. The good thing is we don't have to work at the same time because she watches the kids. So she will work 8-2 and I will work 3-close. Which is good because it gives pretty much all day with the kids and dh since he works 4pm-12am. Ok now I'm really done!! :) blah, blah, blah!! :)

Yeah! She's finally finished! :)

Shepherd's Bush Sophie's Roses

Now I think I'll get my Celtic Summer back out! Not much news to report. I worked last night. I went in at 1 pm, did the schedule and closed the back office (counted $$). I did the schedule in 2 1/2 hours. A record for me! :) I was bragging a little bit because the others take alllll day to do it. It's silly how they milk it. I just can't do things slow when I'm at work. People are always curious if I'm that fast at home. I tell them just the opposite... very mellow. Especially when it comes to housework!
