So Much Has Happened

So much has happened since I last blogged. I've gone back to work full time which has been a hige change. Working 40 hrs a week plus adding an hour and 10 minute drive time per day sure does change how much I can get down.

Football is almost over, which is really a good thing. It is just too much, practice 3 nights a week for 2 hours plus a game on the weekend. Hockey had started, 1 practice and 1 game is much easier. Megan staretd Sparks this year. She loves it. This week we begin the cookie drive.

The kids have all adjusted to daycare. Melissa really loves it, she is changing so much. Her speach is really satrting to take off.

Spring is Finally here!!

Spring is finally here. I hope that it is for good. I haven't been doing much crafting lately. We are in the middle of a bathroom reno. lots of fun. I'm working a bit here and there on my afghans but as it is warming up it is harder to think about working on them.

Hockey is finally over for the year!! It is a happy/sad time for us. My baby (he'll kill me me if he finds out that i called him that) scored the winning goal!! They got Bronze int he tournament. Jamie got a hockey stick, hat, card and chocolate puck for his role in coaching the team. i spent the morning at the rink taking name bars off the jerseys and watching a very nerve wracking game.
Here is a blurry picture of the Mac and Jamie going to line up to shake hands with the other team.
It's spring break here this week. The kids and I are going to start my flowers from seed and then i'm going to try and get some cleaning done.

Wow it has been a while since i last updated. I guess 3 kids, a hubby and everything makes me a little busy....

We are in the city playoffs right now for hockey. Mac's team lost yesterday but they play again today and have the chance to play the team they lost too last night again in the finals. Because of the rink they are going too I'm not gong with the girls, just too cold of a rink and not a lot of seating.

I have been busy working on an afghan this week i want to finish it by the end of the month. I really don't want to work on anything else until this is done.

I'm going to start babysitting again. Not 100% what i want to do but I also don't mind. I have a 10 month old starting today. It should be okay. I guess only time will tell.

I haven't been crafting much but have spent quite a bit of time reorganizing things. Jamie is getting happy to see all the junk going out the door. I'm freecycling some, goodwilling other things and straight garbage for a lot.

I have a challenge in one of my crafting groups to take pictures of all my craft wips and to see how many I can finish.

It has been a long week. The kids and I have had the stomach flu. Thankfully we are finally getting over it. Jamie of course is now coming down with it. I have done very little crafting this week at all, but I did manage to finish my dishcloth KAL this afternoon. Here it is.

It's finally Friday. We are getting snow today so a little later I will have to go out and shovel. Just what I wanted to do today.

Jamie is on his way home because he forgot his cell phone.... Guess for him it is going to be one of those days.

Today has been one of those long days. I managed to finished my bookmark KAL today. The picture I have is not that great, guess I just can't center things that well.




Jamie finally got the bath toy out of the toilet. What a job, he ended up taking the toilet completely off, of course one of the bolts broke but after a little bit of time the squirty fish was removed.




Now Mac is on his way to his second hockey game of the weekend. Here he is in his track suit with his brand new hair cut.


There were 4 of us that made it to craft and chat last night. We had a good time. I'm looking forward to the next one.

It's Saturday! where has the week gone. Jamie is at work and the kids are watching a little tv before they have to clean up.

I'm going to get ready for tonight's craft and chat then I plan on pulling out all my WIPS and taking there picture. I have too many on the go right now.

Last night I finished 2 dishcloths. i tried knitting them both at the same time and I like it. I think that from now on that is the way I will do my dishcloths.

I just finished shaving my sons head, he finally admitted that having long hair is not for him. Here he is before the big cut. Later after bath time I will take a new picture.

It is cold today -15C right now. I think it is a day to stay inside.

Megan is getting ready for pre-school, Melissa is watching Barney and Mac is at school. I'm going to clean up the kitchen and tidy the living room then spend the day knitting.

I finished my Monthly Dishcloth KAL this afternoon. I think that I will make a second one in pink. I like the mauve.
Tonight I'm going to work on a different KAL and hope that I can get it done for tomorrow.

Today is my birthday. I have done a little bit of housework, helped Mac with some of his homework and just finished making some cookies. In a bit I'm going to get back to working on my KALs.
The dishcloth above is one that i did yesterday while watching TV with Jamie. It's very simple.

Well I have decided to make a blog just for my crafting adventures. Lately I have been knitting, mostly dishclothes but I've also been working on some mittens although to date I'm not happy with the results.





This is my first of 3 Christmas stockings that I managed to complete on Christmas Eve this year.
