~*~HUBBIES FINALLY HOME~*~

Posted by sallenlouise on January 26, 2007

WOO HOO! My hubby is finally home! He’s been gone for a month, so, we’re very glad to have him home! I most likely will not be blogging over the weekend. There is a big possibility that he will be leaving again on Sunday or Monday.
I hope you all have a great weekend!

My Weirdness Within Me Meme

Posted by sallenlouise on January 24, 2007

I have been tagged by Melanie for this Meme…..Do you ever wonder why me? LOL!

THE RULES: Each player of this game starts with the 6 weird things about you. People who get tagged need to write a blog of their own 6 weird things as well as state this rule clearly. In the end, you need to choose 6 people to be tagged and list their names. Don’t forget to leave a comment that says you are tagged in their comments and tell them to read your blog.

~I had to ask the family, because I was at a loss….yet, I know I have some weird in me!~

1.The girls said that even though I say I don’t have it anymore, my English accent comes out a lot! (I don’t think that’s weird)

2.I eat hamburgers,pizza and the like with a knife and fork.
(My family gives me a hard time every time I do so.) What they really get on me for is eating ribs and chicken drumsticks that way.

~They are coming to me now…~

3. I love swimming and playing in the water, and I love sea creatures and fish……but I’m also very scared of swimming and playing in the water. The pool is fine. The ocean and the lake…..well, the idea of ………you know….You never know what’s swimming with you. I constantly have the fear of getting bit, or stung or being dragged to the bottom. (A whale grabbed a lady and dove down ….. this stuff happens!) OK, maybe not at the lake…..but still!

~I have weird bed habits, and claustrophobia~

4. If someone (hubby,kid,or dog) lays down on top of the covers, while I’m underneath them, I feel pinned, and sort of freak out until they get off. I start telling them calmly, but if they aren’t fast enough, calm goes out the window.
I also can’t sleep with socks on, no matter how cold….I feel pinned, or claustrophobic.

5. No matter how hot it is, I have to have some part of my body under the covers. When I was a kid…I was safe from the bogyman if my feet were at least under a blanket…….

6. When wrestling or playing around with the kids or hubby, If I get pinned, I sort of have hysterical fits of laughter while telling them to get off me!

Okay…I am going to tag…
Taa Daa:
Miranda
Carol
Lisa
Jackie
Stephanie

I only came up with four 5 could tag 6 …Right…:)

~Snow Day put my week out of wack~

Posted by sallenlouise on January 24, 2007

~But it sure was fun!
OK…….last week really threw me off on posting.
Let me see if I can get back on track.
Wednesday we had snow, nothing at all major, but for us it was awesome.
We had a huge snowball fight with the neighbors and all of the kids on the street!
OK, I say WE, I mean them! I took the pics!
I have been crocheting, but, I’ll post that on Wednesday!
~~~~~
Here is a few of my kiddos and the doggies!
This is not the neighborhood snowball fight, just my 2!

Some updates and Jibber Jabber

Posted by sallenlouise on January 12, 2007

~It’s finally Friday! The kids are out of school Monday, so who knows what the next 3 days will hold. I will be definitely sending out my ~Seasons Afghan~ Squares for the swap at Lullabies and Lace on Saturday . I have some C-ghan squares to work on, some afghan squares to finish up, and just some things I want to play around with. (as of right now, I almost have the 7th swap sq completed)
~I have been trying my hand at designing……nothing major, I asure you. It’s actually a bath tissue cover. If it works out, and is not toooo wonky, I’ll post the patterm. Don’t expect to much though.
~Hubby is still not back……arggggg! The poor guy is working his tail off, and barely getting any sleep. He’s working way to hard, and is definitely not appreciated enough at his current job. Yes, I’m whining about it………I miss him. We’re thinking he’ll be gone at least for another week.
~We have some swap openings available for the Favorite Color Afghan sq. swap at the Swappers Ranch. We also so have a Getting to Know you SWAP getting ready to start. You can still make that one if you hurry!

~CELEBRATION TIME~

~I’M STILL SMOKE-FREE~
I can hardly believe it my self. I honestly think it was just my time to quit.
I thank GOD every day for giving me the strength to do this.
I know with out his guidance……I would still be puffing away.
Making myself sick…a given, but hurting my girls as well. They don’t need to be around it at all.
~Hubby, when home, will not smoke around me. (he has a few times) When we go out in the car, he will not! So, he is helping in in his way. He is being very supportive. AND, he is now talking about quitting as well! So, I’m praying for him to have the strength to do so.
I guess all you can do is take it one day at a time.

Roller Skating Day [ Jan 12 ]
Accordion Day [ Jan 13 ]
Secret Pal Day [ Jan 14 ]
Dress Up Your Pet Day [ Jan 14 ]
Ditch Your New Year’s Resolution Day [ Jan 17 ]
Whisper “I Love You” Day [ Jan 19 ]

~Well, I think I’m going to crochet until errand time. I hope you have a great weekend……….don’t work to hard, play some, and RELAX!
