How is everyone doing? Good I hope. I am still out job hunting, Not going too well still. But I am still looking to go to school.
I am still crocheting in the hopes to sell some stuff. I am looking at trying to sell at some of the craft fairs here in the County next year. I just have to remember when they all are.

Well off here to Get Emma unbored with the library lol

*hugs* to all :D



Well I do not have the net at my house for the moment. I will be coming on here several times a month at the library.
I am still Job hunting and doing what I need to to get into school.
Last night and this morning I made all 3 kids the UBW hat by Dot Matthews. They all love them. I adjusted the pattern a little bit and changed it up in a few places. Wondering if that makes it a new pattern. I am not sure. I know that the first 3 rounds are the same. I joined it with the Magic Ring Method as well. And then didnt use the same stitches or anything lol.

I hope that everyone is having a great week!


Hmm Thoughts

Well last night I started and almost finished a bear. Emma asked me to make her one after her and Jonathon had a tiff about his bear lol. I used the one at Rheatheylia.com again. But this time I wanted the head and body to be proportionate to each other so I used 2 dif sized hooks for the head and the body and limbs. I will post a pic up as soon as I have one of it finished.

I also am going to see if any of 4 yarn stores on the bus route are hiring and turn in applications. I also turned in one at Verizonwireless.com lol Kind of hoping for that one. Wouldnt mind it if they offered free service like TMobile. LOL.

And I am getting nervous about taking the assessment test on the first to see what level of Math and English I have to take.

If anyone reads this Please send out some prayers for me and the kids in this time of me with no job.

Have a Wonderful Wednesday :D



Well I have just been dinking around with my PSP X again. And I have come up with these picture masks. I figured I needed something else to do other then crochet :D LOL Not that I will ever give that Up LMAO!!!

I have my appt with the College still on Friday which is coincidentally my 29th bday. I am actually getting very excited about college. Even the homework aspect of it and I HATED homework in school!!!

I hope that everyone is having a Wonderful Night and week. Send some prayers out for the job aps that I have out please :D


The Kids, Me and School

Well the one of Emma was taken tonight. She Lieks her Flippy Flops.....Now I have NO CLUE where she got Flippy Flops out of Slippers but she did. I think it is Cute lol......Now the ones of Bub and Lex were taken yesterday by themselves.....at 2 separate times of the day LOL....I think they both had the same thing on their minds LMBO!!!

I have an appt with BTC on Friday to help with financial stuff for school. Wish me luck please. I also have homework :D The lady in the Admin Office gave me a book to study for the Assessment test that I take on the First of Oct. :D Kinda nervous but I know that I can handle it especially since it is something I want BADLY lol.

Have a great night everyone :D


Leg warmer

I got sick and tired of my legs being cold...Altho I should have just made slippers or something cause my toes are cold too :D LOL. But I can just wear these over some socks lol. I will post the pattern for this as well after I make the other one. I think Alexis did a wonderful job taking a pic of this one :D

Hope everyone is having a great day :D



Here is Lexi's sleeve. She saw them on a disney show and has seen Hannah Montana in them so she asked me for a pair.

So I wrote a pattern. I am testing it right now to make sure I can get it right with the second Sleeve. LMAO!!!

Hope everyone is having a Great Night :D



Here are the pics to the Bookmark pattern that I posted before. I wanted the close up of the stitch I love my camera lol and here is a pic of MOST of the book mark lol. I wanted to show the whole thing but I wanted the stitches to show more lol and the whole thing didnt want to fit in to the frame lol. Alexis chose the black ribbon to go with the baby pink.

I am going to make her a black one since she is liking black ALOT right now. I am not going to tell her no she cant wear it or paint her nails black. I know that she will probably jsut grow out of the whole Black being a fave color. I think that is it friends that are influencing it a little bit.

Anyways, I hope that you all enjoy this pattern if anyone has tried to make it. Please let me know when and if you do :D

This one made me laugh out loud.
A man boarded a plane with 6 kids. After they got settled in their
seats a woman sitting across the aisle from him leaned over to him and
asked, "Are all of those kids yours?"
He replied, "No. I work for a condom company. These are customer

Thought this pic fit with the joke :D

The Humor of Flying

The humor of flying

After every flight, UPS pilots fill out a form, called a 'gripe sheet,' which tells mechanics about problems with the aircraft. The mechanics correct the problems; document their repairs on the form, and then pilots review the gripe sheets before the next flight.

Never let it be said that ground crews lack a sense of humor. Here are some actual maintenance complaints submitted by UPS ' pilots (marked with a P) and the solutions recorded (marked with an S) by maintenance engineers.

By the way, UPS is the only major airline that has never, ever, had an accident.

P: Left inside main tire almost needs replacement.
S: Almost replaced left inside main tire.
P: Test flight OK, except auto-land very rough.
S: Auto-land not installed on this aircraft.
P: Something loose in cockpit
S: Something tightened in cockpit
P: Dead bugs on windshield.
S: Live bugs on back-order.
P: Autopilot in altitude-hold mode produces a 200 feet per minute descent
S: Cannot reproduce problem on ground.
P: Evidence of leak on right main landing gear.
S: Evidence removed.
P: DME volume unbelievably loud.
S: DME volume set to more believable level.
P: Friction locks cause throttle levers to stick.
S: That's what friction locks are for.
P: IFF inoperative in OFF mode.
S: IFF always inoperative in OFF mode.
P: Suspected crack in windshield.
S: Suspect you're right.
P: Number 3 engine missing.
S: Engine found on right wing after brief search
P: Aircraft handles funny. (I love this one!)
S: Aircraft warned to straighten up, fly right and be serious.
P: Target radar hums.
S: Reprogrammed target radar with lyrics.
P: Mouse in cockpit.
S: Cat installed.
And the best one for last
P: Noise coming from under instrument panel. Sounds like a midget pounding on something with a hammer.
S: Took hammer away from midget.


Emma is 3

Well tonight at 8:37 Emma will be 3. She is all smiles today after she woke up....Which is a good thing since sometimes she wakes up grumpy lol. I told her Happy Birthday and she Jumped up and down screaming WooHoo!! lol Lex and Bub went to summer school so I kinda think they forgot since they didnt say anything to her when she woke up before they left. Her party will be on Saturday The manager to my apts will be doing face painting :D Which I am sure all the kids will find a blast.
Hope everyone is haveing a wonderful day :D


Just babbling

Look at Emma's hair flying lol. She was telling me no she didnt want to be on the rock. Alexis and Jonathon wanted her up there with them :D
This is one of the many walks that we have taken on my days off. We are going to the beach today I will be bringing the camera as well. See what kind of pics we can all get out there lol. They LOVE the camera. I need to get them one of there own sometime and help them learn how to use them. They are doing good with mine.

I want to take photo classes when I finally do go to college ( HOPEFULLY this fall). I am not sure what to do first tho. The beauty school or WCC. I will have to flip a coin and figure it out LOL. I want to change jobs as well. But there are advantages to working where I do. The Commission for one. I get to work with Natalie :D I get a discount on expensive clothes.....All of which I buy in clearance LMAO.

I hope that Everyone is having a Wonderful Wednesday :D!!!!! I have to go get ready for the beach :D lol



Amigurumi Bear

Well I just need to find a way to make a mouth for this Young Bear and it can go to it's Owner. I used the pattern from Rheatheylia.com It is the Beary Jackson Pattern. Now when she comes over and I am watching Ghost Hunters she has something to Cuddle lol.

I think that it kinda looks funny. The head at least. BUT it is also my first attempt at a stuffed animal :D. I know several people who will want one :D LMBO!!!

The kids and I are doing fine. I hope that everyone has a safe and Wonderful 4th of July :D



No Luck

Well I didnt get the job. However they told me to apply for other jobs in the company. So I had to go buy some printer ink so that I can print up more of the apps.

The day that I took these pics Lexie left us a trail of flowers in the trees when she kept walking and we stopped to take pics of other flowers. I decided to take a few pics of the trail she left for us. I think with it being Summer time out now we will be taking some more walks with the camera even if we take the bus down town to walk around or maybe to the Fairhaven district. I think they would have a blast over that way and down by the ferry term. Plus there is the bead shop down that way LOL. I want the kids to pic out a bead or to so that I can make them some book marks for the books they are reading. Jonathon is reading The Hardy Boys and Alexis is reading Nancy Drew. Jonathon read the first in the series in about 5 days or so. Alexis has also read the book Number The Stars, it is about the Holicost, she couldnt put it down a few years ago. Took her about 4- 5 days to read it. And read she did, while she ate breakfast, after she got done getting ready for school, on the way to the bus stop, on the bus, on the way home from the bus stop, after she did homework, while she ate dinner and untill she went to bed LOL. I am not sure how much of it she read at school tho lol. I am just glad that she will read some of the true stories that are out there and not just all fiction. But I am also proud of Jonathon cause not many boys read alot lol. And he is VERY interested in the Hardy Boys. And there is Emma who grabs anything with pics and words in it and will tell her own story. And just about any toy turns into a cell phone LOL. But she loves to listen to stories. Well as much as she will let me read of them lol.

Well I am off here now to get some sleep for work tomorrow. Today started my 6 day run.
Hope everyone has a great night :D



Well I am just waiting for the new job to call and tell me if I got it or not. Please Pray for me. It is a full time days with weekends off. So it will be better then Macy*s. I am so sick of clothes and ready for a change. But this will allow me to be able to go to school in the evenings in the fall. Something I have wanted to do all year we school but my schedule wont allow that at Macy*s.

Another thing. I will have to go into my doc's about my wrists and I am kinda scared about it. He said if I kept coming in for them he was going to talk to me about the Surgery. I am not so sure about it. Right now they are both bothering me tho which scares me just as bad if not more. He has told me to stop typing and crocheting and I just cant do that. They are my sanity LOL.

Well I am off to get the kids ready for school.

Have a great Day :)



Here is Emma's Victory dance after using the potty this morning :D She was Screaming "Wooo Hooo" REALLY high pitched lol. She really wanted that sucker LOL. And look at that you can see a little red in her hair from the sun lol. She gets pretty excited to go potty :D Which is a good thing. I hope that it wont take too long lol.

Hope everyong has a wonderful Day :D


Our Walk

Well the kids and I went for a walk with a friend of mine yesterday. I took the camera with me and got some good pix of the kids, some flowers, a bee, and we got a new Family pic as well. I posted it as my profile pic on here. This is one of my faves of the kids. I will save this one to disk and print it out at walmart for the wall :D

I had a wonderful 3 days off. Kinda dread going back to work tho. I am not looking forward to the mess today and boy do I know that there will be one! I am applying at another job as soon as I can find th website for it LOL. It is a day time week day job so I get to pick to be there after the kids elave for scholl and be home before they get here :D Well will see how that works. Please send up some prayers that I can find the site and then get the job :D

I will be either going to the Beauty School or the Comm College not sure which one I want to do first. I was thinking the Beauty School tho. Then I can cut the kids hair myself LOL. But then I am sure that I can pretty much pick my own hours then. But I am not just going for hair. I will be going in for nails and hair as well.

Everyone Have a Great Day :D

I chose Caron Bright colors Rubine Red and Soft Yellow for my blanket. This pic doesnt do justice to the colors tho. i will have to take it outside when i am done to get a better pic. I am using the rectangle granny square pattern. I am also making it in varigated blues. The one is going to be beautiful when that one is done.
