Those fb games can suck a person in. I got tired of them when I was spent a good part of my pregnancy in bed.

I am giving my son an un-expected day off from school today. We school year round, so when I feel like having a fun day we can throw them in here and there.

I am still working on my tutorial. It would have been done last night, but my husband didn't go into work at the second job last night. He's still not 100% yet. I did enjoy seeing him drive up the driveway when I thought it would be hours before he was home! Of course, Hamilton probably needed him with all the craziness over at the shop hop. I probably won't be able to go due to only having one car...but maybe I'll take him to work tonight. (See, I just talked myself into something again.)

Have a great day!

Good Morning, ladies
I've been up since dark thirty, playing a few fb games (hehe) and trying to get in the forum here. I am still having issues with the connection; not sure who else is.

I've also been working on making a few ornaments and looking through my hoard of patterns, idea book, etc to get something stirred up. Making another pin cushion out of an old sweater - love the re purposing of all things old but still usable.

I feel your pain with insomnia. I have bouts with it regularly; must be a change of seasons and as well in my case, change of life. Ouch!

Rainy here in NC as well - a nice cool and breezy rain which is most welcome since we have been SO hot and dry up until this morning. I have the windows open, a hot cup of coffee, a kitty on my lap - life is good.

Hey guys! I finished my stars last night so I think I will make some more aprons for Christmas. The rain is a welcome sight around here but not 6'' they predict. Gotta go to Joann's (ah heck) to pick up some flannel for baby blankets and a pen to write on my fabric projects. I'll check back later, sweet potatoes!:icon_wave:

I like the Micron Pigma pens for writing on my fabric projects. They do a good job if you write slowly.

I am snack mom at preschool today! :icon_popcorn: I think we are having string cheese, grapes, & pretzel goldfish. Yum.

More cleaning out of the sewing space/computer area. I have to be ready for the painting this weekend, & I have A LOT of crap packed in here.

I found my "freebie" Sweethearts and th Colorful Christmas charms I ordered in my mailbox this morning! What a way to start off the day! Great service ladies! :icon_woohoo:

Happy Wednesday afternoon!
Sat and sewed some colorful plain blocks together last night. I just needed some mundane, lazy sewing to do and keep my mind off things.
As some of you may know, my 2nd son is in Marine boot camp right now. His letters home make me miss him more. He is in his 3rd week so things are still pretty tough for him, but it's all I can do is pray for him and write him everyday.
Katie (16) who plays any sport she can get to play in and is very aggressive - on the front line for soccer and shortstop for softball just to name 2 sports she plays - she goes for an MRI tomorrow on her left knee. The orthopedic doctor said it looks like she tore her ACL and miniscus - so we'll find out soon if that means surgery or what?
Think I'll run to the food store tonight and then chill out after dinner with some more basic sewing.

Hugs,

Before I even started quilting I got addicted to this game. It's not on facebook but it is free to play and can be played on any computer. WARNING: This game is severely addictive!

Yeah I keep getting "get on Facebook so you can play the games with us." I play a free game on line and that's all the distraction I need. lol

I FINALLY this week let go of my Club Pogo account. But, I still have a free POGO account...for back up, just in case I really need an online game. I haven't since Stephen was born!

Personally not big into computer games except for jigswa puzzles and solitaire. My daughters' natural mother became so addicted to online role games she abandoned her girls for a guy she met online in the same game who lived across the border. She hasn't seen her youngest in over 6 yrs. I will admit to playing wii though. Fun plus excercise.

Sorry to hear about your bad experience with Craigslist. I have sold livestock and several other things on there. You get some flakes, but for the most part it has been pretty good.

Have you seen the pretzel goldfish? I love them in Chex mix, cause they don't jab the roof of your mouth like the sicks. The kids just love them. Or pre-school is a co-op, so two parents are in the classroom everyday. It is fun to see how the children interact and grow.

I have more sorting/purging to do before this space is ready for new paint. UGH! I really don't wanna do this anymore.... BUT, I'll be very happy once it is done.

oh mercy I did try that game ...Im already addicted to games LOL I love pogo (rarely play that anymore tho) and I do love the fb games especially since Insomnia and I have been dating recently.
I have not tried the pretzle gold fish but should.
I also have a 16 year old her name is Emily. Soccer star and lacross and softball and anything else including musicals and art she can do . I have to say its extremely hard being away from her. She lives with her dad in New York and I just moved to Cana,Va ...tonight a little homesick ....but anyway Rodney bought me a new sleep aid so hopefully this one works.
Sweet Dreams everyone and Thank you Jan my day would not of been complete without hearing from you xox
Remember first one on after midnight starts the thread for the day.
hugs and love
