wanna come along for the ride?
-thanks so much for all the helpful advice the other day regarding finding balance and family schedules. seriously very helpful and i’m already implementing some of your ideas. keep ’em coming!
-these pics you see are shots from our playroom (if i was really fancy i’d call it my studio, but since the kids and all their toys belong there too, its really still a playroom). i’m neck deep in aprons. 25 full aprons, with ruffles and posies… oh my!
-last week i found out my business bank account was “compromised” – meaning someone was charging THOUSANDS of dollars to my account! fun times closing my account, changing cards and checks, paypal links, etc… oh, and this was after our personal cc was compromised just a couple weeks earlier!
-am not nearly as nervous about blissdom as i was. now i am super excited!! less than 2 weeks away, and i still don’t know what i’m going to wear (not important, but really important – you know? i’m totally a girl)
-i’ve taken 2 full trash bags of toys out of the playroom to donate… and the kids didn’t even notice! too much stuff. i’m figuring if they have less things to pull out, they’ll be less to put away. good theory, right?
-yes, we californians are wimps when it comes to weather. BUT… i think its because some of us aren’t prepared for the amount of rainfall we got over the last week. pouring, nearly non-stop. not such a big deal. EXCEPT… we live on a hill. on a downhill. as in we have neighbors behind us that are at the top of the hill. so when it rains water from their property comes pouring down our property and down towards our house. our (new) garage is leaking all over. we just found out that there is tons of water under our house, too. where my wedding dress is (was) stored. and it was wet. but thankfully, i was able to wash out most of it. it is kind of fun to see my dress again, just not under these circumstances.
-so after all this rain, and my kids haven’t been outside to play at all for a week (because i’m not nearly as cool as joy), late last night sean decided he wanted to assemble the trampoline the great grandmothers bought for the kids for christmas. HEAVEN! oh, my how happy they have been to bounce to their heart’s content today. silas said he was going to have “brown stripes like tigger” since he was bouncing. love.
-speaking of the boy, he’s potty training. again. but i think its for reals this time. weeeeeelllll, i guess i can’t really say that since he is wearing a diaper right now and i’m not asking him to go potty. but, when i am on top of it, he’s doing really well. only a couple accidents so far, and that was only because i forgot to remind him to go. he doesn’t seem to have the sensation yet of when he has to go, but he goes every time we ask him to. and because of this, he’s consuming more chocolate chips than any child his age should.
-i need to color my hair. the grays are seeping through. did you hear me?! grays!!! how old am i?! it’s been well over a year since i’ve done any color, so i think its time. i’m a little fearful though, because i don’t like when it goes reddish at all. i just want brown without the gray. so i think i may do it today. but then again, if it looks bad, we have church tomorrow and i can’t exactly throw on a baseball hat to cover my mistake if it’s bad. but then the next day i have to take gracie to school, and then the next day we have gymnastics… its never ending – if it looks bad, someone will see it. get over it, lindsey.
-i am really enjoying some new bloggy/sewing friends. it’s a good feeling to be a part of a community. encouraging, really.
ok, almost time to get the bigun’ from a birthday party (a drop off party! how weird is it that i have a kid that i can drop off?!) thanks for visiting, and have a happy weekend!
