Bad Day

Ok, so today sucked.  And it had nothing to do with Sean. Today, I decided to move the family room around so that we would have more floor space for Sean to play on. Mom was sitting in a chair watching…  I moved one of our glass topped tables, the glass slipped from the table and tore a very large piece of skin off of her left leg (at her shin), down to the muscle.  I panicked.  Mom remained calm.  I called a neighbour to help take care of Sean, and took mom to … [Read more...]

Oh yeah!

Rolling over!

Now for the most important thing…  Sean. Sean rolled from his tummy to his back last night, with everyone in the family watching!  I couldn’t believe it.  He hasn’t been reaching for things, he hates being on his tummy (unless he is sleeping) and so, I thought he isn’t even close to rolling over.  But he did it!  I’m so proud.  He has been eating his bib and drooling quite a bit…  He is super cute.  I think tomorrow … [Read more...]

Rotating joint pain…

There has been a bunch going on, so I’m going to put things in separate entries. I finally went to the doctor about my rotating joint pain.  Not that I wanted too, but it got that bad.  I’m looking back and I haven’t mentioned having rotating joint pain…  Honestly, I’m trying to figure out when it started.  I know it was at least a week before May 17.  It moved from joint to joint, never going to the same one twice, ending with taking out … [Read more...]

Thank Dog!

All I can say is last week freaked me out.  I so missed my laptop.  I spent the early week trying to figure out if I was going to buy a new machine or get the old one fixed.  I looked at ads, I asked for friends advise…  Finally, I went out on Yelp, and they saved me.  Yes, I found a place that fixes laptops to the component level.  Can you believe it?  AND they were 6 miles from my house.  I drove over, dropped it off, and less than a week later, … [Read more...]

My laptop died

And I am so bummed.  I’m trying to figure out if I should just buy a new one, or have this one fixed.  I may be quiet for a day or two.  Just wanted to let you know what was up. … [Read more...]

The benefit of taking the trash out late…

My little man slept from 9:30 pm to 4:30 am again last night.  He then slept until almost 7:30 am.  It’s really too bad that I couldn’t go back to sleep at 4:30…  I would have gotten like 9 hours of sleep!  Can you imagine?  I can’t.  However, if I had gone back to sleep, I might have missed the loud sounds of the garbage truck coming around the corner.  I thought to myself, I bet John didn’t take the trash out…  We … [Read more...]

Secret Pal 12 Questions

1. What is/are your favorite yarn/s to knit with? What fibers do you absolutely *not* like? I love to knit with wool and alpaca.  I also like mohair.  I don’t really like cotton nor do I like acrylic.  Wool blends are good.  I’m also not afraid of scratchy wools.    They are great to felt with. 2. What do you use to store your needles/hooks in? I store them in a plastic container in their original packaging.  3. How long have you been knitting … [Read more...]

Sick and sleeping through the night

That is my boy Sean.  Poor kid has green flowing out his nose and he slept from 9:30 pm to 4:45 am.  Then he went back to sleep until almost 7.  Insanity I say, insanity! I, of course, woke up at 2:30 am, and then 3:30 am.  Then I waited, and waited and waited for him to wake up.  Yeah.  I’m sick too.  So, I’m blowing my nose, trying to go back to sleep.  It really didn’t work.  Mom says it’s because I took an almost 4 hour … [Read more...]

Another first

Today, poor little Sean has his first cold.  He is miserable.  He only wants to sleep on someone.  I’ve taken two naps with him already today, and now John’s mom is sleeping with him in the chair.  Poor little guy.  So congested.  The funny thing is, he still smiles at me, with all his little misery, he still smiles at me.  And I was worried he wouldn’t love me.  Ha, color me wrong. … [Read more...]
