if only “this was it”

28 Oct

if i hear one more time that the world at large was affected by the death of “he whom i refuse to name”  i’ll….idk what i’ll do but i’ll do something.

but i’m not cranky because the D O G is still gone and i promised i would not be cranky the whole time.  i kinda wish i could stay awake for 2 weeks so i wouldn’t miss a minute of it.  but i think that would make me cranky.

i feel a bit scratchy again.  in my throat.  i got meds.  i reacted to said meds with hives over roughly oh, idk maybe 110% of my body.  quit meds with the hope that it had enough time to kill the bug.  the bug is back.  dang.

after playing last weekend, i am WORKING my fanny off (would that THAT was true) this coming weekend.  i can’t afford sick time again.

but before “work time” i have a day of play scheduled.  my sister from billings mo, is in town for a visit so we are planning a “craft day” at the clubhouse.  5 of us were supposed to come up with a craft to do.  3 of us (me, mom and karyl) followed the rules.  kelly and lisa bailed.  kelly couldn’t find her glue sticks.  lisa feels compelled to work for the man.  but again….i’m not crabby about it because….yeah, you already know why. so anyway, i’m prepping kits for wool mittens and wool journal covers.  i think i’ll set up the needle punch attachment on my sewing machine for them to play with embellishing.  i’ll probably have to do kelly’s for her or she’ll get the needles all gummed up with her glue.

oh!  did i tell you the news?  carin is gonna have a little bambino in may!  very exciting.  puts our quilting plan back a bit but that’s okay.  a NEW baby!!!!  well most likely it’s a new baby, today when i asked ian if he still hoped it was a little sister in mommy’s tummy and he said “no, i think i’d rather have a big tractor back ho”.   hard to believe ian is coming up on his 3rd bday next month.  where does the time go?  so come the end of may, carin will have a 3 yo, a 2yo and a newborn.  yikes! can you say BUSY?!?!?


ok, that’s all the news that’s news and some that’s well, not news.

    Kay, sad to read that you aren’t feeling well and about the hives! Hope you can kick this bug soon.

    The creative gathering sounds like a fun time and the newest grandbaby—–wonderful!!! Congratulations! You are so busy and life will be getting busier in the spring. 🙂

    I was wondering how the quilting plan was working out and was hoping all was going well.

    Simplifying did help me and I have been just keeping my head down, eyes forward, as I get through each week. I’m avoiding the crazy people (thank you God!) so am back to smiling often (still puzzled about it, but given up on understanding).
