So it’s been quite a while since I last posted. Some nights I lay in bed and compose an entry…only to forget it once I wake up. I have been pleasantly busy since school has started. I started going to MOPS again. I was a bit nervous because I knew the moms that I had problems with while I was in the hospital on bedrest would be there. But being stronger now then I was then I did it. It was a bit awkward a few times but all in all I had a great time. I also went to another MOPS group a few towns over. My friend around the corner from me invited us. So now I have 2 MOPS families 😉 Jo-Jo loves his MOPS-school as he says it.
Busy Bee’s cheer season is coming to an end. I believe we only have 2 or 3 games left 😦 We both have thoroughly enjoyed this. Next year I think I may volunteer to be a coach. She is also busy with her Daisy Scout troop. My Busy Bee truly is very busy!!
I have also been quite busy with Goober and football. Picking up from practice, dropping off at practices and games and attending what games I can. He has worked very hard at this. I feel bad that our school doesn’t have a better team. He comes home so disappointed when we don’t win 😦
Gus has been growing in leaps and bounds. He continues to amaze and amuse us. He still enjoys being worn and sleeping with mommy. It’s like he must be close enough to touch me at all times. I am not complaining tho….he very well may be our last blessing 😦 We have been busy enjoying our time at MOPS and our playgroups. There are 2 Christian playgroups we go to. It is good for Gus to play with other children while I am close by as he has a very difficult time separating from me!!!
Ry-Guy is my “slug” kid. If you look at him it seems like he is barely moving lol! He is pretty much doing the same ‘ol, same ‘ol. He is still dating the same girl since February. They mostly text and talk on the phone. He has adjusted as well as he can for high school. He is doing good in school….just not doing well in the waking-up-on-time department 😆
Let’s see who is left??? Chip!!! Well I guess he is my other “slug” kid 😆 As of now he is not doing any activities. We may start boy scouts soon? I just have to see when they meet. Hubby’s job is moving to a new location an hour away from home in the next few weeks and I’m not sure he will be home to take him to the meetings.
As for me…..I have sold a few of my carriers!! I may re-open my Etsy store soon. I’m taking my time on deciding…don’t want to stress myself out. We have also started going back to church.The time was right for us. It feels good to be back. Right now I am in a very good place. I am enjoying each moment as best as I can. I know that at any moment it can all come crashing down (not that I am wishing for that!!)
In a week school will be starting. I can’t believe it!!! Our summer just flew by. Most of my days were spent driving Goober to and from football practice. He had to be there by 7am. So I pretty much did not get a summer off.
Busy Bee started cheerleading this summer. She loves it. This is something she was made for considering her very loud voice 😆 I volunteered to be the team mom. It’s a lot of work but I love it. I do best when I have something to keep me busy.
So what did we do all summer??? We got some beach days in. Hubby joined us for a few trips too. We spent a lot of time hanging in the yard and enjoying the pool. I added some new ink to my “collection” and I got my lip and eyebrow pierced. I found time to get some reading in. I read about 6 or 7 books so far. If I keep up my reading hubby will buy me a Kindle I had a rough time with my mom 😦 She is not loving my new look. As of now we are not speaking to each other.
Gosh writing all this down makes my summer seem so dull! It wasn’t our most exciting summer but I have to say I enjoyed myself.
I am looking forward to school starting. Busy Bee will be in full day so hopefully I will get more done this year. I’d like to start working with Jo-Jo since he wont be in preschool and maybe get some more sewing done too. I’ve been trying to save more money with coupons and I hope to have more time to search for good deals while the kids are off in school. I really can’t think of anything else?? I’ve just been living day by day and enjoying what I can 😉
I do hope to get some more blogging in too 😉
I have opened a store on Etsy! I am selling Mei Tai carriers. Check it out and spread the word!!!
I am happy to say that I have finally gotten back to sewing!! My good friend has been urging me to sew for quite some time. I made a really cute dress with a matching purse for Busy Bee. It was sew so easy 😉
Today I made myself a sling wrap. Since Gus is a preemie I feel like he needs to spend more time in my arms. He sleeps so much better when he is snuggled up to mommy 😉
So I finally got to sewing the quilt for the baby. I had a few pieces of fabric that I picked out when we found out it’s a boy. But I just couldn’t get into making the quilt right away. I don’t know……some of the fabrics were bugging me. Then I woke up yesterday morning knowing which fabrics to use. From there I was on fire! I started cutting the fabric around 9am. By 4:30 I had the quilt completely pieced together and turned. (Sewing the batting with the top and bottom of the quilt) So here it is!! All I have to do is hand quilt it then it’s ready for Baby!!!
I have been sewing the past few days. I can’t remember the last time I finished something. It feels so good. I made 2 dresses and 1 skirt for Busy Bee. I also made a matching skirt for myself. I’m not sure what I’ll make next. I have a few shirt patterns I’d like to make for myself. Busy Bee could use some knit pants too. I have tons of fabric on hand so the possibilities are endless!! 😉
