Better Day

>> Wednesday, April 28, 2010

So my Wednesday is sooooo much better than my Tuesday! I am in a quilt block of the month club and I finally was able to cut out my April block. My goal is to finish each block by the end of month. I love this concept. I do a different block each month, I don't have to coordinate the colors, and I am learning which patterns I do not like :)) This month is a bear claw pattern and so far it is very time consuming, probably not one I will repeat.
Tonight is our community dinner at church so I don't have to cook dinner I am so excited! If you are in my area a free dinner tonight at the First Baptist Church 5-7pm.
I have gotten out of the habit of menu planning since getting pregnant and I really need to start again. It makes dinner time so much less stressful.


Bags for a Bestie

Here is a photo journal of the Bags I made for Beth one of my bestest friends and her girls.

I stitched BFF in the bottom instead of the normal X's

Here is the front.....She loves the color purple!

(I find it funny quite a few of my bestest friends love this color)

Here is the other side
We went one day on a trip to Springfield to pick out material together.

She has 3 girls and she wanted them to have matching bags.

She wanted them larger than my previous small bag so I added sides and a bottom.

She used them as Easter baskets such a great idea!

Here is a picture of one of the small bags next to her Momma bag.

This Post is not a positive one so if you need encouragement don't read it! It will probably be a huge ramble but I need to vent!!!

I have had a horrible day! My morning sickness is horrible today even with the Mocha from my wonderful friend. I have tried everything and nothing seems to be helping.....
My older children keep forgetting to close the bathroom door which means my youngest has put more body parts into the toilet than I care to admit. His head luckily is one that has survived..........the remote was dumped in as well, luckily it still works.
I have very little energy to chase them around and my daughter is into anything and everything she can get to! She doesn't listen to instruction, time out has been used more than 10 times today (which is also energy draining). One high point is Charlie took a 3 hour nap which probably means he just doesn't feel good. I am praying it is just teeth and nothing more serious.
The kids are always hungry, nothing I give them satisfies them. They have had oranges, grapes, apples, graham crackers, animal crackers and even an one oreo as a treat. It is sooo exhausting to be in the kitchen non stop. Normally I make them stick to a snack routine but today I got soooo sick of them asking and asking and asking so I gave in. Along with snack after snack creates dish after dish after dirty counter. I am so sick of cleaning up after them......I know this stage will pass and everyone swears I will miss this someday but I just can't see that at all....Maybe I will look back someday at this very post and Laugh.....Although as a Proverbs 31 woman I should "laugh at the days to come" Proverbs 31:25 not the days past but I am doing good to laugh at anything today.......
Well Hopefully my next opportunity to post will be more positive........I need to remember "The Lord's unfailing Love surrounds those who trust in him" Psalms 32:10b
