social networking is teh devil...

Not really but I can see why it can be such a time suck. I just got an email from an old friend and she pointed me to a group of our old friends on facebook. So an hour and half later I have 20 new friends and I'm reconnected to some guys I haven't seen in almost 20 years! Which is awesome and why I love the internet. But I can also see how easily you can fall into spending an inordinate amount of time on the site. It's a great way to find folks but it's a huge time waster too. I just have to be aware and look up from the computer from time to time!
I'm off to knit a sock!! :)

Why is it that my daughter only gets sick on Wednesdays?

It's a little weird. Oddly it's a good day for her to BE sick since it's the one day I don't usually have anything to do. :) Maybe she's just considerate.
I've been crafting Halloween stuff. I made my daughter's Batgirl cape. It was surprisingly easy. I am NOT a great sewer but straight lines seem to be my forte! I am busy planning my back-tack package. I like to list everything all out and then list the supplies I'm going to need. Then I check everything off as I go. It's a little anal but it's the only way I get anything done right!
I'm heading off for early voting! Yay for Georgia's ease of access to early voting. It's been really popular here. We might be able to turn this red state blue! Or at least purple! :)

new ideas!!

I grabbed the new Martha Stewart Holiday Christmas edition today. There are some cute ideas with beading that I might try for some of my handmade holiday giving. I loved these initial ornaments. I will post some pictures after I get some beading wire and try it out. :)

the crazy week so far...

It's only Tuesday and already I'm feeling a bit frazzled. I am so glad Ronin took a day off today. I think it's a big thing for him to make sure to take care of himself. I know it's hard for him but he's so much better when he does. He's such a great husband and father and I want him to make sure he's here for us for the long haul! :)
If everything stays on schedule (ha!) we'll all be in good shape. We'll see what happens!

and what was your name again?

Hi from my house! I'm popping back onto the scene to do a swap!! A great project that I always wanted to be a part of is back on! back-tack 4 is here. And I got in! Yay me. I will be posting for the swap and maybe on into the future. I know I like it when I am writing even if it is just for me. :)
So hello again!
