Hello out there

So it's been a really long time since I wrote anything. Here's whats going on in my life (by topic):

Scott: Scott's last day of work is a in 10 days. Hopefully since he will be home more I can get some stuff done in the yard and on the sewing machine. He starts UMSL classes next week, though. Mondays and Wednesdays from 5 - 8. I think I'll be able to deal with that since he will not be working.

Molly: She's getting a bottom tooth. She cries a lot about it. She's also moving around the living room like she's crawling through war trenches.

Allyson: Well, you know...three year olds; whatever. I did call the Parkway preschool lady on friday and she wasn't in the office. I hope she will call back next week so I know if she is going to go to parkway or ritenour...that will be in August or September if all works the way I've planned.

Yard: I can't do anything to the yard because it all needs to be done to the street side and I don't trust Allyson not to run into traffic while I'm digging in the dirt. Hopefully this will change soon. Also, I'm determined to get a fence around our yard by the end of June...I don't even care if Scott calls it my Birthday present. We have crazy ants in the yard...suckville.

Health: i've been trying to eat better and I think I'm doing alright. I've started making menus for about 4-5 days and going to the store for just those things (instead of buying tomatos and letting them get rotten before I use them). My food isn't necessarily "healthy," it's just good-tasting food. Also, I've been trying to go on walks more. There is a park that is kinda close and kinda far away so that's good incentive for Allyson to go on walks. ...I think I have arthritis in my hands...that's a bummer.

Sewing Room: I'm currently quilting Aaron's t-shirt quilt on the sewing machine. It's a slow go since the girls don't like to hang out in there and the sewing wakes them up during their naps.'s the first time I've quilted on a machine; I'm kinda nervous about how it's going to turn out. Also, I started "fusing" shopping bags and I started making a reusable tote out of the fused bags. I've stopped in the middle to focus on the quilt though. My next quilting project will either be one for Ashley's (my cousin) baby or one for Nola made out of her baby clothes.

TV: Everything is ending and I'm actually cool with that (I didn't think I would be). Maybe it has something to do with the fact that So You Think You Can Dance is starting soon and I'm SO excited for that.

The End
