Monday, Sunday, oneday...

Busy weekend we had. We were at Mom and Dad's by 7:45 on Friday night. Considering we weren't packed at 5:30 and it is a minimum of 1.5 hours away (on a fast drive) that was great.

Watched 4 Weddings and a Funeral. What a silly movie, but with some really good points.

Saturday we were up at 5:45 am. Why is it that when you put them to bed late, they still get up early?!?!?!?!

We went to a garage sale - some VHS and another potty were bought. One of them is ending up in the car - was very useful at 9:00 pm on Sunday night... on the side of the highway in the dark.

Little gurl is 'potty training'. WHATEVER. Is it something ingrained in children that they go hide when they have to poop? She already has that one down pat - comes out stinking like...

But she is trying and that's half the challenge.

Couple pair of $9 shoes at Wal-mart for me. That was nice. I figure since I wear out the $50 plus in the same time I wear out the $10, I may as well (within reason) buy what's there.

Did some work in my brother's poly house - really enjoy doing that and playing in the dirt. Wish it would come out from under the nails 2 days later...

Visit to biggest brother and SIL house - they are selling and it went in less than a week. Amazing what a little paint can do.

Saturday night - watched PS I love you. Read the book when it first came out and had forgotten a little, but what a great movie and what HOT Irishmen they are... Mom and I may go to Ireland soon. (without Dad).

Sunday was busy with church and lots of family. Got to hold little Tymon. Isn't he sweet?


Working on figuring out some life changes now...somethings got to give and I would rather it not be my sanity so I think I'm going to have to work on it.

My yarn from Plucky Knitter's Classics arrived. Lovely smooshy blue goodness. With some lovely fibrewash. And also my pretty yarn art cards. Figuring out what wall they are going on...

On the knitting front - Sis's afghan is 1 and 2/3 blocks (and some seams and edging) away from completion. Which is good as she will be here next Thursday and for once I want to finish something in a reasonable time. Of course little Tymon needs some booties and possibly a blankie. So booties have been started... And my firebird is coming along...

Anyone want a job as my housekeeper, nanny and well could you go to the office for me first....

loved the book, p.s. I love you, but was unsure how the film would hold up in comparison. I may have to rent it soon.

Good luck with potty training. That can be very challenging!

Wow, you've been busy!

About the shoes: see how they work. If you're happy, good. If you're uncomfortable, go back to the $50 shoes. I've learned that for me, I can buy the cheapest stuff except when it comes to shoes and pants. If I don't want my feet to kill me or my legs to look like... well, unfortunate, splurging is a must.

I've been working on potty training little Dan for at least a month.. its an ongoing challenge! But I think he's getting close (knock on wood).

I finally posted about my swap package that you sent me, and I loved everything so much! Thanks a billion!

I love the shoes on sale at Walmart too - nothing wrong with that. I actually just picked up 2 pairs of liquidation shoes there, thank goodness they still had my size (which is a common size, size 8)

Tymon is adorable!
