My DH made me do it!

Chris asked if I had blogged recently and I replied,"nope":( So with his funny antics of "encouragemant" you guys now have a post from the totally stressed out Catherine!

Its been a really hard week.

First I go to the dentist to get some crowns put on my back molars and WHAM they hit nerves on both of them... A $800 visit turns into a special trip to an endodontist for two root canals! I think I am the only person on earth who brushes their teeth twice daily, flosses and puts extra flouride on at night and still has terrible luck!

Blah, Blah Blah! Don't get me wrong Thanksgiving was a treat! BUT, during the meal I began to feel ill. Chris,Hillard and Brandon were sick with the stomach bug the weekend before holiday week, and I thought I had scathed by without catching it...WRONG! Not only did I miss the best desserts my family has to offer, my meal came out faster than it went in later that night.
(sorry for not sparing the gore)

Chris and I have realized that its imparitive that Hillard attends school on a regular basis. He has been soooo out of it this week, its really upsetting.... It just feels like were losing him again.. Its the worst feeling in the world... Although on a happy note: I spied Brandon and Hillard "sort of" playing together today...AND Brandon asked to go to the potty!!!!! Brandon is going to get the hang of it before Hillard does...

Chris has decieded after spending this holiday break at home with us that;
he has changed his mind about retiring young when we win the lottery, he will continue work!.... That rascal! ;)

So lets break my week down:
1. I'm in finacial ruin because I still have my aching teeth......
2. Thanksgiving SUCKED!!!!!!!
3. My son is a basket case b/c he depends on the restrictions of school to survive.....
4. And my husband WANTS to work if he is filthy rich to get away from us, can ya blame the poor guy after a week like this? (hehehe).....

Have a good week ya'll ;)

Busy week!

What a busy week! My little business is growing slowly but surely and I am having a lot of fun with it. I just got done with a self striping batch this past weekend. I still have to skein it all up before I can put it on etsy for sale, but it all went fairly well! The colors are beautiful and I think they will make amazing socks for 13 lucky folks :)

The Mama Llama Sock and Lace Clubs are going strong! 6 members already and I think thats promising! I had a hard time figuring out what the "Special Suprise Gift" would be in the club kits, but I have fugured it out and now I am busting at the seams to announce it! I promised myself to keep it a surprise and I will wait until the current members got their packages then announce it.... *jumping up and down*

Knitting? you want knitting? hmmmmm? nope not much of that... just a sock and a wristlet.....I have actually been sleeping lately...AMAZING huh?
