Holy Crap Again!!

Can I just tell you that I have HAD IT!!!!

I cannot take anymore.

This cute boy pictured here with my sister, is the latest victim of the evil fairy that lives here.
On Saturday while in the front yard dancing for money (don't ask) this little monkey #3 fell off of the bed of his dads truck, and yes, cut open his head. So it was off to the hospital again.
He was screaming so much that I guess they decided to glue the gash open instead of giving him stitches.
I am sure the amout of money we have spent this month at the Doctor or hospital would make you sick.
Did I say that already?

Holy Crap!!!!!!

I really think that the , Could you go to the doctor one more time, fairy has been hovering over my house. I really wish she would leave. I am out of co-pay money. Thank goodness for our Health Insurance. It costs us an arm and a leg, no pun intended, but its a good thing we have had it. First off my monkey #1 had a terrible allergic reaction to some weeds and his eyeball swelled up rediculously huge. Not only was the outside of his eye looking like someone had punched him, but the white of his eye was swollen over the colored part of his eye. I rushed him over to the instacare, which is just a clinic that is open later, and the doctor there just did a lot of freaking me out. He took one look in his eye and said "you need to go to the ER immediately" Then he leaves the room, gets on the phone with an ER doctor and says that he thinks his ey6e might burst. I am in the other room but can hear him and I am thinking HOLY CRAP!! So they gave him a shot of Benedryl and sent me to the ER. They rushed us right back and then ended up just giving me a perscription for eye drops. What a waste of energy.

So that was on a Saturday, we actually went a whole week before my DH, The bearded Lady, came home from his team roping event. He walked in the house very slowly and me, being the nice wife that I am, just began laughing. I know I am insensitive. Turns out he had fallen off of his horse in the midst of throwing the winning catch. I guess he was more like pulled off. I will not try to explain the ins and outs of team roping. Just try to imagine a big Cowboy guy being pulled off his horse, with his rope around a cow, and he was holding on to the rope.

Well , he went to the doctor and has 3 cracked ribs. I did feel a little sorry for him after that, but not too much. He is a man after all. And this is a recreational activity.

Lets see that was on Saturday, So now lets move on to Tuesday night. I know you are thinking this will never end. Sorry!

Tuesday night I was doing my motherly duty of trying to get Monkey #3 to eat his dinner. Of coarse, nothing was working. I had told the kids that if they ate their dinner I would take them to get snowcones. So we were getting ready to leave. Monkey #3 was not taking the bait, and still refused to eat. I'm not sure what happened next but it ended with Monkey #3 on the floor with a barstool on top of him. My barstools are no ordinary stools.

They are made from wrought iron and wood. They are really sturdy, but those monkeys can climb up anything and knock it over I guess. Well, Monkey #3 whom we will now call Tonto the indian brave, ended up scalping himself. No, I am not exaggerating. After another trip to the ER Tonto has more stitches than can be counted. He was literally scalped.

He has stitches under his scalp halfway back on his head and then a lovel row of them across the front. I bet the doctor stitched for at least an hour.

It is now my job to get that fairy out of here. I have had enough of the ER for a lifetime.

Oh my gosh, what do I say. I would like to thank all the people who helped me to achieve this great award. Especially Jellybelly who gave it to me.

I have never won any awards before. And I mean any. This was great. It made my day. I love you Jellybelly.

In other news, I finished 2 projects today. I am very proud.

This is a cute pillow. I just planned on doing this for myself. But I decided it was too cute for me so I am giving it to someone. (Can't tell who, but her birthday is tomorrow).Have I ever mentioned that I have a passion for pincushions. I love them. They are so fun. I made this one today. It was so easy, I might even make it again sometime. It has a cute little yo-yo on top.While I was hard at work. The dogs were not. This is my little Oscar. He is a Shih tzu. (not sure of the spelling) I love him! He fell asleep in this bag today. It was just so funny. When he was a puppy I used to pack him around in my purse. He must just have remembered all the comfy naps he took in there.And here is Jersey. She was napping, but when she saw the camera she jumped right up to say "cheese".

It's Here

My new sewing machine arrived today. It is great!! Well, so far anyway. I haven't done much with it but open the box, and read the instruction book. I did thread it and try out a few stitches. So far so good. Maybe it will make me a wonder sewer and all my projects will get finished. Even the 4 quilt patterns I bought on a little quilt shop excursion I went on today. I will have to share them soon. They are so cute. Most of them are by Thimbleblossoms. Check them out. I think she has a blog or a website. Cute stuff!

My Sox are Faster than your Sox

I finally got around to getting pictures of my fab socks up!! I love them how did Tricia from know that I have a passion for knee socks. I am sure to get things done faster in these babies. I am sure that if I ever run out of work to do that I could get a job as a rodeo clown. Maybe these fab socks will inspire me to use my bike a little more. I am sure the pedals will go faster while wearing them.
They are also great for just hanging around and kicking up your feet. Sorry about the yucky legs. These socks would be just knee socks on a normal person, but I am only 5'1" so I get the added joy of the thigh high.

Loved the sock swap, and can't wait for the next one!!!!

Sewing Bliss

This is my new sewing machine. I ordered it from amazon yesterday. I am sooooo excited. Now don't get me wrong I love my other sewing machine. It is a 1950 Singer Featherweight. It has served me well. I mostly just quilt so it is all I have ever really needed, but these days I have been trying my hand at purses, and maybe I will try a skirt soon. So I thought I might need a machine that did more than just straight stitch. This one does lots of stitches, and it has a table thing that hooks to it for free motion quilting. It should be arriving on Saturday. Can't wait!!!

Happy Day!!!!

Guess what I have internet. I really don't know what I did back in the ice ages before there was this wonderful world-wide web. Well, now I have to make up for the lost time.

Have you ever tried to take a picture of the Loch Ness Monster or maybe Big foot? Well, I have captured a few images of the Queen Bee. She sometimes appears at the floral/salon where I work although few people have been able to aquire any proof. I was one of the lucky ones.

HA! HA! Actually this Queen "B" is at work all the time but she was dodging my camera. I did what I could to capture her. These were clear back on Mothers Day. We were just having a grand time, what with all the millions of flowers everywhere.

The other "B's" were much nicer about their pictures. As you can see we are all so happy.

There must have been some hyped up pollen in there. Or maybe the flowers are so beautiful that we cannot be. I really don't know who these people are, I thought I had a picture of me and Lola, but surely these two are not us.

Hope you get to see this Vicki, sorry so late in getting it up. Check in tomorrow for some sock fun!!!
