It’s actually, technically Monday now. Which means I should soon hustle to bed and try to get some sleep before my alarm wakes me up at 6am to do “life”. I’m hoping to get in 60-90 minutes of sewing prep before anyone is awake. I have fabric pulled for 6... Continue reading

She msg’ed me on my business page.. then my personal page. *shakes head* So nobody saw it... I just mostly stunned, but now I just feel sad for her, it takes someone bitter to do that I think!

I agree... It’s nice to know that you can relate to others and that so many of us struggle with the same things sometimes isn’t it?

Thank-you! ❤️ Yes.. I get the same way, Kathleen.. i’m dropping things too. :( I dropped Chester’s bowl today and chipped it. It’s definitely some neck/shoulder pain as i’m SOOO achy most days. *sigh*

Yep... this is 100% accurate. Just throw in some sewing and this is going to be my weekend in a nutshell! It’s supposed to be rainy and cold, so hanging around the house getting things crossed off of my to do list works just fine for me! I had a... Continue reading

Today on my business page I received a nasty message from someone who felt the need to tell me what a horrible person I was, how “fed up” she was of me, that I have no talent and people only purchase my sewn goods from me out of ‘pity’. This... Continue reading

Today I had a lot to get done and i’m quite happy to say that I was very productive today and managed to get lots of sewing off of my “to do” list! Housework was ignored, but whatever, it’s not even my stuff... there are textbooks and stuff all over,... Continue reading

My handsome boy watching the leaves fall in the yard... lol! He’s getting SO long, and while his paws are huge, these photo makes me laugh ‘cause he has wee little legs and his torso is soo long! He’s still a little hellion, but he makes me laugh every day!... Continue reading

Last Sunday I placed an online order with Marks. Today I checked my email to find my shipping info and surprisingly I was never sent a confirmation of my order, nor any shipping info. Since it was a $152.00 order, I called Marks for an update. Apparently they have NO... Continue reading

I’m really tired, lethargic & achy today... I haven’t slept well the last few nights at all, (Unlike Chester, who has no issues with sleeping) so I’ve more or less just taken it easy today and got some stuff done around the house. I intended on sewing more today, but... Continue reading

Instacart! I’m totally loving this service! I tried it for the first time a few days ago & was *very* happy with the service! We desperately needed some groceries in the house, and I had zero time to get out & shop and still get everything done that I needed... Continue reading

A little gift to me from Child #2... I really wanted to see this movie (haven’t yet) so when it was spotted at Goodwill for a mere $3.00, it was grabbed and brought home for me! It honestly made my day! I’m not reading anything right now so I think... Continue reading

Self-care is definitely not as easy as it seems... i’ve been ignoring it for far too long and it’s starting to wear me out. So i’m on a mission to spend more time on self-care. I’ve been trying to eat more regularly. I eat very healthy foods, don’t eat crap,... Continue reading

Kids. Kids are budget busters. Each & every single time. LOL!! Mya outgrew her new Skechers that we bought for her in the spring and naturally we still have 2 more months (or so) of “shoe weather”, *sigh*. Which meant that I had to find another pair of shoes for... Continue reading
