stuff and nonsense

Any one else ever get really, really stupid and cranky during that "special" time of the month? I'm enjoying my week of cotton-headed angst, complete with a toddler with a cold!

I'm freezing cold (another thing that I really enjoy during my "special" time), and sitting here staring down the P.I.L.E. of sewing waiting for me on my work table. A Meeup carrier for a review, three unlined valances for my office, a mound of red fleece for the curtains in the boys room, a naked pillow form that needs to be covered. OH, and I musn't forget the 4 H.U.G.E. rubbermaid containers sitting in the middle of the floor in the office containing the fluff and stuff that make it Christmas-y around here.

We got the outside decorations put up over the weekend, and I'm going gung-ho on the indoor ones, trying to get them finished before Ava's birthday party on Sunday. Shouldn't be a problem, except for the fact that I can't seem to stop wiping Ava's nose or changing my er, well, you-know-what, long enough to even crack the lids on those tubs.

Don't get me wrong, this is N.O.T. a "poor-me" post...just tryin' to keep it real!

Anyone else out there throwing twinkle lights and tinsel at everything right now?

Ahh, yes. We also have the outside done but the tree and trimmings are proving a bit more daunting.

Although I won't be having any "special" times of the month for a while (wink), I do know all too well about that. I am heading over to your meeUp site...want to get grandma a carrier oh and of course one for me too! Your blog is adorable by the way, I totally enjoy reading what you have to say ;)

I have never used a sling or anything before but I really want to this (last) time around.

I'm so there right now. My poor family has had it with my grumpy mood swings...

We got up our decorations this last weekend and it's good to be done. Now I just wish I didn't have to shovel the driveway from our snow storm last night. Oh well.
Haven't had a special time of the month in almost a year so I can't say I'm there with ya. But, I do remember the fun that comes with it. I had it for 20 years before I was blessed with surgery. :) Hang in there. I'm thinking of you. Not getting much exercise these days. I need to get back on track-how about you??

Hi! Just came across your blog from 4 Little Men. Your children are the CUTEST, but I'm sure you knew that already. :)
