A short one kinda lol

Hey there. Well things have settled down here a bit. We ended up having trouble with the furnace last Friday. Thankfully Hubby was able to fix it and we're back in business. The rest of the week has been pretty normal. Hubby and I went shopping on Wednesday. Now Hubby doesn't normally go shopping cause he hates it as much as I do, but he offered to go so why not. The kids were too funny Sissy and Buddy were saying prayers for him lol . As Bear was getting on the bus he made to sign of the cross over his Daddy and said God bless you lol lol . Now I'm not that bad.... OK maybe I am : ). I do move really fast when I go shopping . Maybe because I don't want to be there lol . I'm happy to report Hubby lived and made it home without any serious injury's. It was nice to have help loading the stuff in the van. I do like the once a month shopping thing but it can take forever to get everything put away.
This weekend is more of the same lol lol . I have cookies to make, more french toast sticks for the kids . I really need to get a handle on the house. With every thing that been going on here and the fact that for some reason I've been really tired things have slipped. Crafty well not to much over the last week but I did find some crochet video's yipee lol lol . Now I can learn some new stitches . That's about it from here for now. I'm off to walk the dog and let out the chickens. Til next time have a great day.

Ok first a bit of back round. Both Hubby and Bear sleep walk. Now Bear isn't to bad cause I can pick him up ( for now any way) and drop him in bed. But Hubby on the other hand well he's 6 ft ... I'm 5 ft 4 hahahaha so I have to be more creative lol. Needless to say I'm a light sleeper .On to Tuesday night . We went to bed around 9. Bear started about an hour later. After we chased him around I decided to just sleep in his room. OK so I settle him down toss my arm over him ( to keep him from getting away from me lol ) start to fall asleep and hear a click. UH??????WHAT????growl , hiss . OK drag my tired butt out of bed figuring that Hubby was wandering around ( still growling and hissing) walk into the living room and ..... nothing ...uh ??????? Check our room there he is snoring away. OKAY maybe I'm losing it ( God knows I'm friggen loony tunes lol ), Bear is talking, off to he's room get him settled, start to fall asleep and CLICK. WTF!?!? *Drag myself out of bed.... click. Search the house don't see anything go back to bed. CLICK. Repeat *. I don't know how many times I wandered around the house cursing and looking for what was clicking but at some point I passed out. Morning rolls around , Bear gets up and turns on the coffee pot lol mommy needs coffee. I roll out of bed grab a cup of coffee and toss a waffle in the toaster for Bear. UMMMM the waffle is a little soft fridge must be on self defrost. CLICK!!!!!! What????? CLICK!!!!!! Damn it !!!!!! Drag out the fridge ummm. CLICK!!!!! Hubby and I stand there CLICK!!!!! Bet you see where this is going. I open the freezer and .....damn things are defrosting. Shit.... Hubby and I grab the laundry basket and start moving stuff to the other freezer. Fridge is warm shit shit shit . Grab some milk crates toss the stuff in and pile them in the snow. (Bang bang bang the sound of me banging my head on the wall) Hubby works on it for a while but it's dieing slowly . Now I'm pissed off and over tired, Hubby is waiting for my head to explode , thank god he doesn't try to make me feel better lol he hopes for the best and waits until it passes. Do we buy a used one or new umm????? It was a hard call for us ,we really want to get out of here this year, to buy a new one but Hubby found one and got a great deal . So we spent all day yesterday cleaning and organizing the kitchen. We had to move the microwave, it used to be on top of the fridge but the new one is to high, so we ended up with it on the counter. How we have to remember where the microwave is lol lol . But we made it lol .

Now I'm off to start dinner : ) Til next time have a great day.

Bear's Harry Potter robe
HAHAHA Franken robe

MIL's cape

Cape for MIL's bingo buddy lol

Some Christmas ornaments 10 cents a piece for some projects I have planned

Some wired Christmas ribbon cheap lol

Super cheap Christmas fabric

Things are moving along here at the old homestead. It's been another one of those long weeks. We did some shopping . Picked up a couple t shirts and sweats for Bear. Sissy grabbed 2 more shirts for work. Gotta love the clearance racks : ). Buddy had all 4 of his wisdom teeth pulled so he was home most of the week only going to school to take tests. " C" took Miss B to the breeder to well lol breed lol. We got her back yesterday guess we'll see. Today we're going to start getting the canary's ready for breeding. No parakeets this year. Dalila died so we would have to buy another bird. I don't see that happening but you never can tell. Everyone has been enjoying the warmer weather, including the chickens. Looks like a have a couple of rooster boyfriends lol lol . When I go down to let them out 3 of the roosters ( including my first rooster boyfriend Casanova lol ) meet me and do the rooster dance of love lol lol lol . So looks like spring is in the air. But Hubby just told me that it looks like we're in for another weird storm. You know the kind , might be rain , maybe snow , how about some ice just to make things interesting. So looks like I'll spend sometime today getting ready just in case.
I did get most of the stuff done last weekend as you can see by the pic's. Still more to do but at least I'm putting a bent in it . The kids are on vacation this week so it's a perfect time to really get into the other house and get that moving. It's funny how things just pile up. So I'll do the old half hour at a time bit til it's done. The rest of the week well .... I'll just play it by ear. See what happens.
Ok I'm off . Til next time, stay save and have a great day.

Weekend plans

I'm hoping to get some crafty stuff done this weekend. First I want to do Bears robe. I finally found craft paper so I can make my own pattern. Next I want to make new covers for the heating pads. I have a ton of old towels that I can use. Plus I have a list of other crafts that I want to do but I'll play those by ear. Than the cooking , short bread cookies, 2 loaves of raisin bread, maybe some brownies. Bear wants french toast sticks lol and regular french toast to put in the freezer. Silly boy lol .

I did get the rest of the shopping done or so I thought. I forgot to grab dried cranberries for the granola I made for Hubby. But I did score some clothes for Bear at walmart. All of it was on clearance, two pants and shirt sets and a camo shirt $ 3.00, a pair of camo pants , hulk t-shirt, and 3 pairs of fleece pj pant for $ 5.00. All but the t-shirt and camo pants are getting put away , they are to big. But now I have a jump on school clothes shopping.

Ok that's it for now it's time to get dinner on the table. Til next time have a great weekend.

Woke up this morning to see it was a whopping 3 degrees . I really look forward to going to let the chickens out ... not lol . I end up wearing 3 coats, Hubby's balaclava, and a heavy pair of gloves and hope I don't freeze : ). Than it's off to walk the dog..... yep we're dog sitting for "C" while he's working out of town . She's a pointer, super cute and every well behaved . Once the kids are all off to school I can hide in the house until Bear gets home.

So today is house cleaning day lol. I've let things slide a bit so.... I'm starting to feel a bit better now that we replaced the humidifier. Guess the house was to dry. I want to get everything done before the weekend cause we have big plans lol. I got most of the shopping done. Tomorrow I'm going to finish up and hit the 1 and only thrift store in town. They're having a 50% off sale so I figured what the hell. I need a thrift fix.

Tons of cooking happening here. Hubby likes short bread cookies so after some searching I found a really simple cookie recipe that with a bit of tweaking is perfect. I also found a really great raisin bread recipe. Than ( hahaha) I found a crock pot recipe of yogurt. Bear loves yogurt so I figured why not. It is great everyone loves it so no more buying yogurt and no more plastic cups going into the land fill.

Well thats about it I'm off for now . Til next time .

What a week

This last week was just wild. I feel like a headless chicken. First we had some trouble with the van than the truck. We lost a rooster to a fox and a chicken to the cold. The weather has been crazy. I'm sick of the ice and the cold . I do feel ( and pray) for everyone out there who is having major problems due to the wild weather. I have been having so troubles breathing. I have no clue what is going on. Twice now I've swallowed wrong and couldn't catch my breath,tried to do the old nose breathing trick no go . When it happened yesterday Hubby got me out side and that seemed to help. Talk about freaking your self out. I end up shaking and feel wiped out for a while. I guess I'll have to suck it up and go to the doctors at some point uh .

OK I'm done with the doom and gloom lol . I scored a couple of major deals this week. I picked up a ton ( about 20 yards lol ) of Christmas fabric for 50 cents a yard . Than I found twin packs of toothbrushes and toothpaste for 88 cents each. You know I grabbed the limit on both.Than I lucked out. Hubby wanted to make chili so I went to buy chop meat. I found two 5 pound packs( normally $10.00 a pack) that where both marked down $ 4.00 off . The catch was they had to be used by yesterday. No problem lol . We cooked up all of it got a huge pot of chili ( half to eat half went into the freezer) and ended up with 4 more meals bagged and frozen.I'm so happy lol . I even found the fabric for Bear's robe on clearance.

I'm still working on the capes for mil. I had to rip apart the first one three times lol but now I have it lol lol lol . So I'm almost done with #2 . Than I'll ship them to her and see what she thinks. She doesn't need the gift one til the end of the month but I figured if she got the early and wanted something changed I would have time to do it.

Ok I'm off for now . Talk to you soon . Til next time stay warm and safe.
