|My 18 year old son. :0 He bought me these measuring tapes! AND a Thai Tea!! :0 I don't know if he is finally deciding to be nice to his parents, or what?... ;) I was pretty surprised. The one on the left is a puppy. The thing you pull out the tape with is a doggy bone. The one on the right is a rooster. The thing you pull the tape out with is an egg. :P Besides what he bought for me, he also bought his little brother something!...|
|A Spongebob hat!! He was putting together his Spongebob Legos; and now he has a hat, too. :P I don't know what he bought Eli... (They are pretty secretive. So, I'll have to ask him later.) |
I have been so sick lately. The two younger kids missed school last week. I was fighting it off. But Thursday night I was feeling pretty yucky. Then I "called in", to my job which I don't get paid to do anyway. ;P (But I like doing it... volunteering at my son's school.) Well the next day (Saturday), I felt worse than ever. I might have had a fever. I don't know. Stupid thermometer (sp?) doesn't work.. I just keep getting sicker... Last night I was drinking cough syrup (Kids' homeopathic but hey..). I finally took some Nyquil before bed. It knocked me out. I could barely get up this morning. And I felt horrible. Ugh... I feel a little bit better now, though. All I have been craving lately is ice cold fruit. I've been trying to eat healthier lately, anyway. Eating more fruits & vegetables every day.. But yesterday I wanted icy fruit. (Weird... I know.) I did buy some frozen strawberries. I was going to make a strawberry banana smoothie last night, but I felt so bad I didn't make one.
|Anyway~~ While I have been sick, I was looking through all my patterns trying to find one for a short sleeved sweater I want to make. Not that I need to start a new one now, but... For future reference. ;) Well of course I didn't find the pattern I was looking for. But, I found another pattern I was wondering about; and was so happy I still had it!! Our youngest son had been wanting a Pillow Pet for the longest time. Every time we'd go anywhere, he'd say "I want the whale" (It's actually a dolphin, I think.. He has since then gotten one..) I kept thinking about some "Bed Bugs" I had crocheted our two older kids when they were little. (Like, ten years ago...) I wondered "Did I ever write down how I did those? I wonder if I still have it somewhere..." And, I looked through my patterns a couple times, too. And never found it. Well, guess what I found yesterday? I was so happy! First, I found the paper I had "drawn" my ideas out on.. Then the next paper I pulled out had "legs" and "ladybug spots" on it. I flipped it over and it said "Bed Bugs". I was so happy, I started one right away. I didn't have any good colors, so I had to use what I had on hand... This is what I have done so far. It's not "so" cute, eh? But I am still happy to have found the pattern... When I have a few done, I want to put the pattern up on my pattern blog, for what it's worth.. ;P I haven't posted any new patterns there in a while. I have been trying to figure out how to monetize my blogs. I can't figure it out with this one. But I thought I would try with my other one, since it's the old format (??? Is that what it's called? I don't even know computer language.. lol). Well I think it worked. There's an ad on there. I am not sure if I am supposed to put my own ads on there, or what. I'll have to read some more about it. Anyway I figured I should post to that blog now that I did that. :P Maybe it will get some hits. :D |
I hope this post makes sense, feeling kind of out of it... :) Going to go stick my head over a steaming pot of water, now..
