What's New?

Alrighty. No focus at all today, so let's just have a chat, shall we?

Beege is doing much better, thanks for asking. A lot of her welts turned into bruises, so she kind of looked like we were beating her with drumsticks for a little while - I assure you, we were not. She's back at school, where she belongs, thank goodness. You know how when your kid is sick, you'll do anything to help them feel better? Fetch books, bring water, let them eat lying on the couch, watch copious amounts of inane television? Well, she's just getting past the stage where she thinks I will still let her do those things. I will not. Yesterday, she made me take her for a walk around the neighbourhood holding a sign that said "Save the Earth", and was very pleased with the one lady who smiled at her and wished her a happy earth day.

Kee? She's doing fine. She didn't get sick with the vomits when B did. She seems to have decided that it's a really good idea to start screaming when she doesn't get her way. First, she looks at you to see if you really mean no. Then she makes this horrible exasperated noise that is akin to a moose's final death throes*, then she throws herself on the floor and full out wails. It's a little draining.When she's not screaming her head off though, she's charming and lovely to be around.

Husband is doing well. Very busy at work. Our anniversary is coming up - nine years (of marriage, anyway). Luckily, he doesn't follow those lists of what you're supposed to give someone on anniversaries, because I don't want any pottery, or willow. That's... what? A mug in a basket?

I'm okay too. A little .. sad? Maybe "bewildered" is more the word. I'm tired, and I'm unfocused, and I just want quiet. Which is nearly impossible to get in my house. I've been trying to focus on finishing any projects that I've already started. I've got a horrible habit of starting something, and then getting excited about something else before it's done and just moving on. I finished my first ever quilt! It's a baby quilt, and just squares, so not too difficult, but I did do it by hand, so I'm kind of proud of it. I'd post a picture, but Husband "fixed"** the computer last night.

That's about it... nothing very interesting going on over here. But considering the past few weeks, maybe that's a good thing.

How about you guys? Anything exciting happening to you?

**Which seems to mean "hid all my files and changed everything so I don't know how to use it."


  1. I am so happy the girls and both feeling good. I was worried about you guys for a while there. Also glad that you will not be getting a mug in a basket for your anniversary! LOL!

    Congrats on finishing your quilt! That is a big deal! Way to go!! :)

  2. Thanks, JL! :) Hopefully he'll read this, and put the mug basket back on the shelf. :P

    Thank you. :) It's a little one, but my first, so I'm pretty proud of it.
