YAAAASSSSSSS

We have no kids! WE ARE FREE ELVES! For tonight, at least. Yes, tonight is the big night when both girls finally get to spend the night together at their grandparent’s house. It’s been almost four years in the making, but it’s finally going down. Hopefully. We’ve talked to Z’s mom and we’ve talked to the girls, and everyone knows… Read more »

Nothing Much

Today has been a day of doing very little, but doing it well. Both girls were home with me, and were awesome at entertaining both themselves as individuals, but also as a pair. I think that we’re all going to make it through this half-term, seeing how there’s only two more day-days before the weekend and return to ‘normal’ operations…. Read more »

Hard at Work

I have been putting my hands to crafting today. The missing order finally showed up, so I was able to make a few of the rainbow bracelets for my shop. One sold pretty quickly as I sort of expected, but it still makes me grin. Everything else today has been dedicated towards getting more things into the crochet marker quarter… Read more »

Do Not Open ‘Til Christmas

Well, okay, I guess I have to peel myself out of my blanket sooner than that, but I don’t wanna. The week is over, the workday is over, and I just want to veg. I did thank the girls for a mainly good week; I’m really proud of both of them for independently spearheading crafting projects. Even if it was… Read more »

Today was the last day of the half term, which means the girls are my company for the next week. I figured I’d try to get a cute picture to preface that, which means I managed to get them to look up from their tablets for a fraction of a second. Having said that, attached to their tablets is probably… Read more »

Crumbling

Z was out earlier mowing the lawn. He’s not done it in a bit because either the grass was wet, or he’s been in too much pain. The girls wanted to go out and play with their scooter while he was out front doing it, so I opened the door for them. The light coming through the rotted mortar caught… Read more »

Little Gamers

Today, the children exemplified that they are indeed our children; they spent the entire day playing video games with each other. Perhaps I should have encouraged them to do other things but meh. They were happy and having fun with each other, thereby enabling me to work. Considering that I’m well behind myself, having a couple of solid, uninterrupted hours… Read more »

My pretties arrived today! My two sets (and bat’s one set) arrived in good order this morning — with one of Z’s Amazon orders. The boxes have been sitting next to me taunting me all day. I’ve had silly things to worry about like, oh, work, and keeping the kids alive, ha ha. I know, not actually silly, but just… Read more »
