James just hit his head in the same spot he already had a knot and I'm scared to see what it will look like in the morning.

I just am pretty sure there isn't ANYONE else willing/able to take the 3 kids. What can I do???

Brilliant!

I finally got Dance Academy up and going for the year so hopefully things will slow down a bit for me. At least for a week or two anyway!

Dh's dad has been in the hospital since last Friday because of a gall bladder flare up. So they took him off all his meds - including his heart meds - which sent him into the ICU. He's been there since last Saturday. Dh can't go visit him either because he's got a cold. So he can't visit his mom either. I feel so bad for dh.

so I have three chairs almost done - i think one more coat of paint on the fronts and maybe two on the backs - they have 3 coats atm on the front side

also we'd picked up some children's chairs with metal legs and the legs had rust so those have been sanded and sprayed paint with a first coat

we started sanding the table but are waiting for some tougher sand paper for my dad's belt sander

and we deconstructed the children's wooden outdoor bench that needed new planks (board bought today to cut down to size) and will need to be sprayed bc of some rusting and probably we'll just buy new hardware as i dont imagine its not more than a couple dollars worth and all the screws/bolts are rusty too

so more productive than normal and it feels nice. Dh has had to do extra boy duty though for me to get those things done and its not even that much done but oh well

chat later
Great stuff!!! I love making things too

Anyway, I didn't get to catch up on the thread much, and I need to go get kids ready for bed. So, I will try to come chat tomorrow.

Goodnight!

I hope Fynn had a fabulous birthday!

Glad you're back

Fynn had a good birthday

Steph....what camera do you use?

Jen, I looked at all of the houses, and checked out the floor plans. I have to say that I like the floor plan of the biggest one the best, but maybe that's not so surprising. After that, I like #2, then #1, and then #3 (sorry Jerry!) Having lived in a house with everything on the long like that, I wouldn't actively choose that as a floor plan. I didn't like it at all.
Me too!

Re: Basically it's Sunday

Good morning Faith I hope you can get some sleep.

I've been busy getting Shannon's school/sport bag ready. Writing her name on everything. Putting in new plastic folders, the ones from last year are all ripped. She has all new pencils, a new glue stick and I washed her paint set so it looks nice and clean. Oh and her name is on her new drinking bottle.

I hope I got everything....and putting the first note to the teacher in her homework book to arrange a meeting to talk about Shannon's ADHD. I'm hoping the teacher is up for this. I really will be pissed if she tries to get Shannon sent to a different class/school.

Re: Basically it's Sunday

been up on the sofa all night w/ Analise...she cried for an hour straight last night from 10-11pm...no idea what was going on, she did have a low fever though. Maybe our fan blowing on her was making her feel worse? Once we got into the living room she went to sleep pretty quickly and woke up only 1x after that. BUT I'm going to pay for sleeping on the sofa last night!!!

kids are watching blue's clues....off to make breakfast for them and get the bigger kids ready for church! BBL!

Re: Basically it's Sunday

I have a Nikon D40X. It has been dropped enough times to where the lens that came with it doesn't work very well anymore. It sometimes will focus and sometimes won't. So, I have to get a new one (lens).

DH is being a total butthead this morning. I at least have an excuse to be a B.I. due to hormones. What is his problem?! Maybe he is upset that I totally shot down his name suggestion. I'm sorry, but I will not subject my child to the wrath of being named Armistead.

Thanks Steph. We are looking for a better camera...we've only ever used a point and shoot up till now but are really frustrated with the quality of the photos we've been getting. The kids are getting faster and the pics are nothing but blurry now.

Goodness...that is a horrible name

Cami just curled up on the sofa and said to me "Mummy, not waking me up, yeah!"

...because we end to wake the kids up if the sleep at a bad time of day, if it's less than 3 hours till bed time.
