Valentines (Luv) Day!!

I hope all of my friends had a special day that someone made you feel loved sometime during the day. It was kind of a rough day for me, Abbey was not feeling well. She cried a lot. But after she got better everything was great!

Ashley got her Valentine when she got home from school...

Abbey got her valentine at Wal-Mart :)

Jake found his valentine in his car after work but I forgot to take pictures :-0! He got a $15 refill on his starbucks card, a 6 pack of his favorite beer a mixed package of rochere' chocolates :)
and this.... this is what Momma (aka me) got :) O so pretty, I love it!!!!!

Not a lot exciting going on around here, both of the girls are getting much better everyone is still coughing though, It lingers, My poor MOM has been down with it for the last two weeks. We got to see her yesterday for the first time in a week which is very unusual for us.

Here are some pretties I'm working on :) My next pair of socks & a pretty dishcloth.

Been watching some new shoes, I'm SOOO badly missing my old ones though because of that darn strike!!! argh!! Big Brother started, It's going to be an exciting season! LOL!!!

I'm behind on American idol.

Jake talked me into Watching a show called Breaking Bad, It's about a high school chemistry teacher that finds out he's got cancer and doens't have long to live and starts doing some unusual things to secure his families future.. The first episode was quiet interesting. If you get the chance I suggest trying it out.

I'm sick for reality shoes.. So I'm watching Bret Micheals Rock of Love 2 and I have The Flavor of love recorded to watch as well :)

Jake and I are also watched Celebrity Rehab which I LOVE.

We're alos LOVING this season of Lost. What a fantastic show!

I have lipstick jungle recorded but I haven't watched it yet...

I also saw that Dexter, which was only on Showtime is now coming to CBS the lead actor was one of my faves from Six Feet Under so I'll def be giving that one a try :)

Hrmm.. That's all I can think of for now, I'm heading out for baby feeding :) Speaking of which Abbey is now broke of her bottle :)

Bye for now...

It's here...

You know what it is... you've had it... if you have kids your kids have had it too... yucky Flu! Ashley started getting sick on Sunday coming home from My Mom's house, Then Tuesday Abbey started snotting and coughing everywhere... 3 days of fighting it was enough for me so we took the girls to the ER last night. It was so full in the waiting room there was barely a place for us to sit and people who came in after us were standing. 3 hours later the Dr saw the girls and we went on our way with medicine even, Thank you Doc for saving us the pharmacy trip.

So I've been home for over a week, I have serious cabin fever I'm tired of wiping snot and cleaning puke and this is what my kithcen counter looks like.....

I'm dreaming of child free trips to Hobby Lobby, Child Free Knitting meetings... even child free trip to Wal-Mart (now that is bad, i hate wal-mart) LOL!!

Enough of that.

I have been knitting just a little bit. Yaay! haha! One of the pros of being stuck at home, Knitting & more Second Life :) LOL!! So here is what I've finished....

My first real pair of socks... I'm pissed though because I had to change balls of yarn in the middle of the secon sock and because of the way the coloring is on the balls of yarn I started in a light section and didn't notice until it was much too late... so you can see it here, But I'm still proud of them, I still love them & I'll still wear them!!

This is the felted bootie kit that I bought at L&B yarns on Norman the day Jake and I shopped while waiting for his Dad's plane arrival... they turned out so cute!

Let's see.. what else has been going on, I don't think I mentioned that while Jake's Dad was visiting we noticed the toilet leaking around the bottom by the floor... easy enough right? The seal needs replacing, we buy a seal life the toilet up replace the seal and put the toilet back right? NO! They pulled the toilet and the floor was rotten. So we had to replace that section of the floor so we wouldn't fall thru it. LOL! Not fun.. and now until we can afford some flooring to put down in there part of our bathroom floor is plyboard. Not pretty. Oh well, It matches the rest of this house now I guess.. LOL!!

I think I've covered about everything.. Sometimes I wish I HAd something more exciting to post about... a wild adventure... a cruise we went on a vacation to Hawaii and then I take a reality check and realize that this is MY life and I do Love it :) I am blessed.
