Little Tidbits

Tuesday, March 2, 2010

{Tuesday Feb. 23rd} Headed to Chuck E Cheeses for Luke's friends 4th Birthday. Our first visit, although fun for the kids.......would be fun to have something like Smeeks. The place where Nie Nie's daughter Jane had her birthday. Really, think it would even be a fun place for my birthday!

{Wednesday Feb. 24th} Headed to a morning appointment and spotted a retro donut shop on the way. Jim's Donut shop, 40 years old and the most tasty donuts and treats. There were 8 retirees sitting at the coffee counter, I loved it! Luke kept pointing to the pink icing covered donut and exclaiming "lady I want this donut"! {note to self: please go over manners}

After the sweetness overload {please don't ask how many caramel iced & cream filled donuts I had} we headed to Jill's to start into slipcover making. I've had a book on my shelf for at least 8 years waiting to be used. Needless to say the sugar came in handy----it's a ton of work just measuring and cutting! {no, i didn't help sew, that is beyond me!}

{Thursday Feb 25th} Pulled a Mary Poppins stunt and cleaned the kid's room. Snap, snap...all 1 million bits & pieces from you-name-it-toys are put in their right bins & all together.
Yes, I did hide some of the annoying puzzles that have 10 million pieces. I can pull those out and Luke will think they're brand new!
{Friday February 26th} I started to feel ill Thursday evening. I was freezing on Friday wrapped in insane amounts of clothing--you should've seen the socks I had on! I plugged away, took pictures of new products for website and drank tons of hot, hot tea.

I had to get some things ready for a 50th birthday party and learned how to make pipe cleaner rings! Martha had the pipe cleaner lady on her show and I diligently learned how to make these puppies. They're fun to make!

Matt mentions finishing our taxes, I hyperventilate and then I state---I really, really don't feel good. {I really, really didn't feel good}

{Saturday February 27th} Headed to Miamisburg to pick up Matt's car and raid the pipe cleaner aisle at Joann's. Head to Dollar Tree to stock up on nostalgic candies for the 50th birthday party.

{Sunday February 28th} I made it to church. Our minister starts with heartbreaking accident.5 did not make it.kylee, age 5.parents attend our church. Read about it here on Shannan's {a first cousin to kylee's mom} blog. Her thoughts on this are amazing. Prayers for this dear family.

I'm still under the weather and hopefully my antibiotics will soon help me out. I have not been this sick since I lived in CA. Thanks to my mom & mother-in-law for helping with the kids. I can't even begin to do any "mothering." I doing a little better this afternoon. I have piles of pink tissues.

The ring kit is the cutest thing ever! What a great idea! I have been putting "retro" candy in little boxes and giving them as treats for birthdays etc. I love the way the bag looks, so pretty!
Have a nice day,

Hey Gals. I'm only now realizing that I've been missing your posts! I am certain that I used to be a follower??? Anyway, happy to have figured it all out. Thanks for your continued prayers and love for everyone. (And for the sweet words about my post!)
