Out Of My Room

This morning when my son woke up but before he got out of his bed, he wanted his sister to come in his room. She went in there and before they came out into the living room, she had taken one of my son's blankets and wrapped it around him like a cape.

He was walking around the house with it still on when he ventured into my room. From the living room, I called to him to get out of my room but he didn't come out. After a few more times of telling him to get out of my room, I hear this little 4 year old voice say, "You can't get me! I've got super powers!"

Apparently his blanket cape gave him super powers I was unaware of! Lol.


Growing up I remember staying the night at my grandparent's house. Grandpa and grandma would be drinking coffee with breakfast. Grandpa would ask me if I wanted some coffee too.

Of course, I said no. I didn't like coffee. Then grandpa would jokingly tell me, "It will put hair on your chest." To which I would reply, "Grandpa, I don't want hair on my chest!" Then grandpa would just sit there giggling with a HUGE grin.

It is so fun today to tell this story and bring back that memory especially when my daughter is there to hear it too. Grandpa still does his giggle and grin. :-)

Now as a grown up, I still don't like the taste of coffee and still don't want hair on my chest BUT mmmmm, the smell of coffee is great!

My hubby used to drink energy drinks to help wake him up some days but now has started drinking coffee more often to get his caffeine fix. The aroma of it in our house in the mornings is wonderful! I joked with him the other day that he was getting old though. Lol. He gets up on some mornings now and sits around drinking coffee like his dad and my grandparents do.

I don't think he considers himself OLD yet, but does realize we are not spring chickens anymore and are getting closer to that OLD age label. We may not want to get closer BUT alas it is part of life.

I guess this morning I would get classified in that getting old category with him because I'm sitting here typing this blog post with a hot cup of coffee myself. Yes, I know I said I don't like the taste of it, but the warmness of the coffee sure does soothe a sore throat which unfortunately I have at the moment. 

Hubby puts sugar and creamer in his coffee but says he is going to try to get to a time when he can just drink it black since each cup he currently makes never tastes quite the same. He says he doesn't always measure out the creamer and sugar the same each time.

My coffee is doctored up with lots of sugar, honey, and creamer. Gotta try and disguise that gross coffee taste that I don't like! Do tell what you like in your coffee!

Staying Up Too Late

My husband frequently comments that we shouldn't stay up so late. I agree but alas we always do. Once we finally have the kids tucked away sleeping, it is just so nice to sit and enjoy the quiet.

Before we know it, it's after 11pm, sometimes even closer to midnight and on occasion later than that! Then the next morning when the alarms go off, neither of us want to get out of bed.

Of course, once I do get up and get around, I'm up for the day. It usually doesn't take me too long to wake up and get my day started but sometimes since I stay up too late, I sure do have a hard time initially getting that first foot out of bed!

Our Tree

The other day my son looked at the tree in our front yard and was a bit upset. I believe his exact words were, "It's ruined."

Now the reason he thinks it is ruined is because all the leaves have already fallen off of it! Too funny and too cute! It is so fun to listen to him talk now a days. You just never know what he's gonna say next!

Good As New

My son came to me a bit ago with his pillow from his bed. He had the pillowcase off and was wanting a new pillow.

I told him I would get him a new pillowcase. After I put a fresh, clean, yellow pillowcase on his pillow I gave it to him and told him to put it back on his bed.

As he was walking back to his room, he stopped, turned around, held his pillow, and said, "It's as good as new."

I thought it was so cute. Kids can say some cute things, especially when they are still young like he is.

Failed Resolution

Clearly I have been failing to keep up with one of my New Year's resolutions. :-(

Those of you who read my blog on a regular basis can probably guess which resolution I am referring to. It's the one where I was going to post a new blog post everyday this year.

Obviously that has NOT been what I have been doing. I missed 3 days last month and now I've already missed one day for this month. Shame on me, I know!

After a 3 day craft show this past weekend that was super busy, this week I am one, just plain tuckered out, and two, even though I'm tired, I am busily working on more items for another 3 day craft show this coming weekend.

Yes, you read that right. I signed up for two, 3 day craft shows for back to back weekends. What was I thinking? Well, both of these shows have been going on for a number of years so both have LOTS of traffic so they are not shows I want to miss.

I still have some items left from last weekend but really do need to get more made as I have no where near what I started last weekend's craft show with. Today I was able to get 14 hand towels made and got a good start to some nylon netting dish scrubbies.

I never have as much as I'd like to have complete before doing craft shows but hey, I do what I can. That "L" word called life always seem to throw something my way when I'm trying to crochet. That's to be expected though so I just work with what I have.

So instead of a New Year's resolution to blog once a day, I think I'm going to change my resolution to be that by the end of 2012 I will have blogged 366 times. That will be one post for each day of the year and of course since it is leap year, that adds an extra day thus the 366 posts not 365. I'm allowed to change my resolution right?

Well, even if I'm not allowed to change my resolution, I'm going to anyway! You can just call me a rule breaker! Even though I most likely won't be blogging EVERYDAY, I will be blogging so please do stop back by to see what I've got for you to read! In order to have 366 blog posts by the end of the year though, that means some days there will be more than one post to read! So stay tuned!
