Life and Plans

Who was it that said life is what happens when you're busy making other plans? That's how things seem to be going around here. I have so many things I want to do, and then I have to do the things that need to get done, and then there are the little things that pop up. I need more hours in the day.

On the 2nd Tate turned 6. Where did the time go? We had a good day. He wanted to go bowling again. He seems to think that's what you do on birthdays. It was a blast. And we had cake and presents. A good time was had by all. Then on the 4th I took some cookies to share with his kindergarten class. I made car shaped sugar cookies. The kids were so impressed and I felt like an awesome Mom. :)

Dillon was able to come off his medicine 3 weeks ago. He's got about a 70 percent chance of never having another seizure. Yay! The only problem now is that he's going through withdrawals so he's been a little grumpy, sometimes lethargic, very clingy. I hope he gets over it soon.

I've been slowly trying to plant a garden, plant some more plants and flowers around the house, spin a little, knit a little, read a little.... keep up with the house, wish I had a ton of money so I could do the things to it that I want to do...see, I just need more hours :)

Happy Birthday to me!

My birthday was good. It was mostly just a lazy day. Unfortunately my hubby had to work all day so it was just me and the kids but we went out to dinner when he got home.

My spinning wheel showed up on the 10th! It was unfinished so I got to play with it all week, staining and then putting a couple coats of polyurethane on. She turned out soooo nice!
Meet Guinevere. I haven't had too much time to spin but what I have been able to do has been nice. The first time I sat down it just worked. I couldn't believe it! I'm glad that it came with 2 pounds of wool to play with. I may need all that practice!

My Mom sent a package that arrived yesterday. She sent a shirt and a gift card to home depot. She also sent the kids some toys and candy. She's a good Grandma. And Mom too :)

My Sister is going to come up this Saturday, her b-day is the 25th so we'll celebrate both our birthdays then.

I love when my birthday lasts nearly all month!!

A bit of update

Poor neglected blog. I'm sorry.

Anyway I'm still around. I've been working on some quilt blocks I bought over 10 years ago. Maybe one day I'll have a quilt. I've been unpicking one of the blocks because it was a little wonky. I started putting it back together and it's still wonky. So it's been set aside again.

I've also been working on a pair of socks for me. They have peep bunnies on them. I'm excited for them, but I'm having a hard time. I've lost count how many times I've restarted them. I hope I'm on the right track now.

The kiddies are doing well. Tate loves school and is disappointed when the weekend comes. Dillon is starting to be a little more understandable. He still isn't talking as well as other kids his age though.

I'm excited for my Birthday in about a week! My hubby got me a spinning wheel! I got the tracking number last night and have been obsessively checking it since. It was in Illinois last I checked and should get here on the 10th! I can't wait!

Gotta go for now. Tate had to come home early from school because his tummy hurts. So aside from being sad because he's missing school, he doesn't feel good. Dillon is doing his best to cheer his brother up though. It's great how well they get along!

Hello New Year

Hopefully this year will be great. So far it's been ok. I even got carded when I bought some cough medicine the other day. The cashier didn't believe I was over 18!
And if all goes well, Dillon will get to be weaned off his medicine in April. I'm crossing my fingers on this one.
Anyhoo, hoping this year is made of awesome.
