Out of Town

Just a quick post for my SP partner and others that I am going out of town for a few days. I will be back late Friday night. My grandpa is in the hospital and I am flying in to Odessa to stay with my grandma for a few days. I will make a post when I get back. I hope all is well with everyone.

Feeling better

No pics today! I am finally feeling better! We had campfire last night and it was great as always. Next week is the last one. I am sure going to miss those kids! I really loved running the group but I have decided not to do it next year. I think I just had too much on my plate this year. Once Dax is a little older I might consider running a group again, we will see. I want to have more time to relax with the fam instead of feeling stretched so thin. I am going to take an online summer class. I am a little worried about doing it online but it will give me a chance to continue without needing to be in class 2 nights a week. Savy's dance and campfire are almost over so Mon, Tues, & Wed nights will be free again. I am hoping we can start going to church on Wed nights again. Savy just loved going to dinner and Family Fun Zone on Wed nights. I know she misses it.

I finished the leg on the other Regia silk sock. I have not been knitting much since I was sick so I have not gotten a lot done. Since I am at the heel flap I think I will put it aside and do some charity knitting before Guild on Sunday.

Mother's Day was the best! I just don't understand those moms that think mother's day should be a day for "themselves", away from their children and family. We wouldn't be mothers without our children. How can you celebrate mother's day without your kids!!! It is so sad how many times I hear moms acting like they lost their lives when they had their kids. Sure it is hard, very hard!! But it is amazing and wonderful and full of a love that can not be explained! You should never have children if you are going to resent the change in your life! Anyway, I will get off my soap box now! Check out my mom's blog for pics of Mulberry picking and sandbox fun on mother's day! Now..on to the daily routine. Catch you all later!

YAY!!! I just got the most awesome package in the mail this morning from my SP!
It could not have come at a better time! I have been very sick and feeling blah! Yesterday mom came to help with the kids and brought me roses and now this! All right before mother's day!
My SP sent me a really cute smiley measuring tape (I always need these), an awesome cinabon candle that is already smelling up the whole house! Yum Yum! I forgot to get a pic of the candle. She also sent a beautiful fan made by the same company who made the candle.
Some truffles that I have have already eaten 3 of. They are sooo good! Two skeins of Lorna's Laces which I have yet to ever try but have been wanting to for quite a while. The colorway is awesome! She also sent a hank of Malabrigo which I have never tried either. I am so excited!!!!
And last but not least, she acutally knitted me a bracelet! It is soo cool! I have never seen anything like it. I wish the pictures turned out better! It is very intricate and the beading is amazing! I don't think I could ever do it myself!
All there is left to say is that my SP ROCKS!!!! I must have gotten the best partner out of all the participants. I could not have imagined such an awesome package! I loved everything in it and will use it all! Sorry if my post is a little off. The meds I am taking are taking a toll on me. I need to go rest for a while. Thank you again SP you are an angel. Thank you for making such an effort to find things I would just love. You went so above and beyond!!! I hope all is well with you!

Yay!! I have an SP10 package on the way!! Thank you SP. I can not wait to get it! I was soo excited about being a part of SP10 but it has been hard to stay that way! I wish I knew who you were. The partner that I got has not made a blog post in 2 months and only responds to my emails sometimes. When she does it is weeks later. She didn't even let me know she recieved the first present I sent until about 2 weeks later and it was a one sentence email. It makes it so hard to want to go out of the way to find neat fun stuff for her! I have had her next package ready for a while but wanted to add some more stuff. I may just send it anyway. It is hard to know what to put in there when she does not make any posts. OH well, that is just the way it goes sometimes!

Things have been so crazy! Daxton has had a cold again for about 2-3 weeks and we found out he has ear infections in both ears again. They recommended he see a specialist about allergies and possible tubes in his ears. He goes on the 24th. The antibiotic upset his stomach last night and he just cried and cried. I felt so bad for him. He finally calmed down after I took him on a walk at 9:00 last night up and down our street about 4 times. It just broke my heart to hear him cry in pain like that!! I feel like he has been sick so much and I just hate it. It makes me sad! I have to keep reminding myself that they are just colds and he is a trooper. It doesn't even seem to faze him. He is into everything:) With all that going on I somehow ended up with strep throat. I felt so bad I didn't even knit all weekend. David was a dream and did everything for the kids so I could rest. He is just amazing! I love him more and more each day!

I had an interesting morning with all the rain. We had 5 of the neighborhood kids come wait for the bus at our house because of the rain. I went to change Dax's diaper and while I was in the other room they all missed the bus! I just about died! I had to go out in the pouring rain and get the campfire tubs out of the back of my car so they could all pack into the back. With 2 of the girls arguing it was and interesting morning to say the least! I love them all to death but they can be pills. The kids are all a lot older than my daughter and they get into arguments all the time. Little girs are so funny! They get mad at each other over the silliest things. As tiring as it all is...I am glad they come here instead of Savy going to their houses. It is amazing what you hear from children!! You are not sure what to believe but I feel better with them playing at my house that is for sure! I am starting to figure out that I need to have food for many in the house because there are a few that seem to always show up at meal time! It really makes me wonder!! Anyway, I am just glad that they feel happy to be here no matter what their home situations are like. The "normal" family seems to be scarce these days!

Hopefully I will get some knitting done soon. I need to start on the second Reggia sock and finish a sqare then I am going to start a summer tank. I will post some more tomorrow before I bore everyone to tears!!:)
