Hubby and I had a wonderful anniversary dinner! Subway has such charm! ;o) but it was really good. After that we stopped at Joann's. I am the proud owner of a new sewing machine.
Unfortunately i have no idea how to sew on it! I made some great stuff at the store,(see pic)
home is a different story. I should have taken better notes when she said the machine had a brain! :o/ Great thing with this machine is, it can be added on to. eventually i will purchase the embroidery kit and not only will it sew and quilt it will embroider. :o)
After that we went to Cold Stone for ice cream. The 2 other times i had been their, it wasn't really great. In fact in a previous blog post i think i said i wouldn't bother going back. Well after being bombarded with buy 1 get 1 free coupons, i decided to try it once more. We went to a different store than before, it was SO YUMMY!! Of course i got the chocolate peanut butter option. (my all time fav) Scott got the chocolate overload, or something like that. We both ended up with tummy aches after that. Scott's was a bigger tummy ache, cause his ice cream was really big! Plus he got the waffle bowl dipped in chocolate w/sprinkles. :o')
so now onto today.....it is raining, i cant figure out how to sew on my sewing machine, the kids don't want to do school, or anything but play legos. At this point i don't really care anymore. I am so tired of giving the lectures about doing school/chores. Unfortunately the boys are *dying* to go buy a new ($50) lego set...
Hmm...too bad they didn't do their school work and chores.....(enter evil grin)
i am beginning to feel overwhelmed again. In addition to being a stay at home mom and homeschooling...I am working at Joann's, selling Avon, selling Stampin'Up, wife, mom, cook, i try to sew, chase after a rambunctious 1.5 yo, ....the list goes on. I have decided that i need to take a break from certain things in my life. some of the things listed are not applicable, so i have decided come March to take a break from SU. I have not been able to give it 100% for a long time now. In addition, the supplies take up a lot of space. i am currently working on downsizing my stock. I normally offer the stuff to my customers, but since i currently have so few customers...if any of you are interested in knowing what i have for sale let me know! :o)
So on with my day.....hope yours is better! :o)
