I had a semi non productive day. I got the kitchen sorta cleaned and then my ankle started bugging me so I sat down. I was kinda bummed about it. “I can’t do ANYTHING sitting down” I thought. So I hopped on and came across some tutes! WOOT! I picked one that I thought would pass the time until my ankle would feel better to finish up. I picked this one.

I have to say I heart tutes, lol. Especially ones with LOTS of pictures. So I went over to fabric cupboard and found some remnants that I had no clue what I was going to do with them. Lilli said the were pretty so I decided that they would be her skirt. Surprisingly there was just enough! I thought about taking some pictures of me sewing, but that would have required me to get my camera, and as we all know I sat down to get off my ankle:)

This is the end result, I still have to cut some loose threads.

AND a close up!

LOL, so yesterday I was playing with the kiddos in the backyard at my mom’s house. I fell in a hole. Bah, totally twisted/sprained my ankle. The kids thought it was really funny watching me crawl into the office. Ryan had to come and get me, since I walked over there, and there was no way I would make it home. I wrapped it and it feels a little better today, but I didn’t get to go to Forza for Coffee and Carriers. Totally bummed. Oh well, next week!

Still haven’t found my NE lip balm either. Boo. Ryan said that he’s going to clean out the car when he gets home, so hopefully it just fell out of my purse in there.

As soon as my ankle feels better I will be heading out and getting the stuff to make some laundry detergent. I found a great recipe to make liquid detergent. For some reason I think that it works better! Who knows. I am waiting for my big order from Crunchy Clean to get here. I really LOVE her diaper detergent. It got everything really clean ad smelled super fresh. Weather permitting(and ankle) We are going to get the stuff for our laundry lines. We decided to have it in the back on the side. Ryan watched the sun for me. LOL. Plus the kids can be in the back while I am hanging up laundry and whatnot.

Ok well I am going to hobble to the shower and typing without these letters are really getting to me.

Come ON!

GAH! Insert over reaction dude here please. If I wasn’t so lazy and a wee bit tired I would dig him out of my photobucket. I lost my NE lip balm. It’s most likely in my MIL car. Sigh. Next order, I swear I’m ordering 50. This was a useless blog…

On the road again…

Literally. I am updating in the car. Sadly this is the only time that I have had to actually sit ad update, without interruption. So update time.

My grandma hasn’t been doing too well. She is doing ok, not getting any worse which is a good thing. She has a 3-4inch blood clot in her leg, which leaves her unable to move on her own now. So some one needs to be there in case she needs to get up or something. Thankfully my family has rallied around and are helping as much as possible. The main work has landed on my mom though. So if you had tried calling or getting a hold of me, that is where I spend much of my time. The loss of my cell phone has also added to that. Thankfully I found that this morning tough.

The kids have bee just as crazy as they always have been. Kaleb is a weirdo. He is on a HUGE Wiggles kick again and will only wear yellow shirts. It’s been interesting. Lilli has been playing along with him although it infuriates him that she won’t wear purple when he wants her too. He also has taken another key of my laptop. While I had tried to replace the “h” key that was chewed off I noticed that it wouldn’t pop on. Upon closer inspection the little metal hook that holds it in place got broken off. The “n” key was his next victim. SO I am looking into a new laptop. I think that I am going to get a new keyboard to replace this broken one and try and sell it. He won’t say why he took them off either. Absolutely maddening.

On a really off topic, someone wrote a blog entry about one of my posts! My wish list was talked about here! Too funny. Yes I do LOVE Petunia Pickle Bottom! I seriously almost got a used one, but a Coach bag won. Hey! It was lime green ok?!? All in all my decision was swayed since my bag included shipping and ended up being a little cheaper.

The kids and I went on our first Gig Harbor mom’s Meetup group. Not the most welcoming group imo. Neither kids got along with the other kids there. Oh well. We met up with some moms from The Baby Wearer on Thursday. Not only did I have a blast, but the kids got along GREAT! It turns out one of the mom’s was from DS and we had been trying to meet up since February! Funny. I got to hold and love on 2 squishy babies. I also got to drool over the mostest gorgeous wrap! OMG I am So going to try one next time around. I got a nice demonstration and we tried to get Lilli to be wrapped, but it was a no go. Oh well. She loves the Lucky Baby more than anything, and I can actually get all my grocery shopping done in ONE trip!

Speaking of shopping, I found the CUTEST coat for Lilli, for next winter. I have been picking up a few items as I see them here and there for her. She FINALLY decided to grow and skip 18month pants altogether. Go figure. So I think I am just going to get slim 2T items. Thankfully there is another kid’s sale in October.

So as to why I am in the car. WELL, after my get together with the BW gals, Ryan called me from work and asked if we could go down and see his parents. Then this morning he called and said that he got off work early. So here we are. I had to do a load of diaper laundry before we headed out though, so we got a later start than HE would have liked. Oh wells.

I just HEART John Cusack.

I really do.  Apart from being one of my favorite actors, he just seems like a genuinely down to earth person.  While checking out one of my many “morning coffee” blogs, I came across his new diary and movie project.  It’s called War Inc. which is going to be released on May 23rd.  You can read his diary here.

There is a link to his Myspace which gives you more information on the new movie.

There is also a link to $3 Trillion Shopping Spree.  Have a try for yourself.  What would you spend it on?  I plan on giving it a try later today and I’ll let you know what I come up with.
