I had a great time this past weekend! Saturday, Kaitlin's ceramics class at the University Art Warehouse was sponsoring Empty Bowls. You can go and make bowls on the pottery wheel and then they fire them and glaze them and in April they will be on sale and all the proceeds go to the Food Bank. I made 2 bowls and it was so much fun, and way harder than I ever imagined! Kaitlin is really in her element there and it's amazing watching her! She makes me so proud and I still can't believe she's 20 and a junior in college. Time really does fly by.

So this is me and my first ever bowl! Lol!

Sunday, I did nothing but sleep late and read fanfic! It was wonderful! Oh, and yoga! I have been doing yoga everyday for at least 30 minutes since last Wednesday! I'm starting to get back in my groove, and feeling pretty good.

I also took my glasses and had the eye doc check them since I couldn't see a bloody thing out of the progressive bifocal and they were way off! I now have new lenses and they are awesome, and most importantly...I can see!!

Okay, Supernatural made me laugh so hard too many times tonight, and I feel great! Dean calling Ghandi a smurf, and that he was kinda squirrely! Bwhahaaa! Sam telling Dean Ghandi was a fruitarion...and the look on Deans face. Thursday is my favorite day of the week now, even Vampire Diaries, that I must watch with Kaitlin, was a little more entertaining this week. It's fun now that Kaitlin is older, to like some of the same things and be able to enjoy them together. Believe me, the other 6 days of the week she makes the most of annoying me with her smart mouth and teenage girl drama. It's nice to have one night we can both agree on something. Hee!!

Work was hell this week so I started my weekend off right and had Chili's ribs for dinner with chocolate chip molten lava cake for desert. Yummm! Then I came home and put my jammies on and have been reading some Trueblood fanfic and relaxing. It's so nice to just do nothing. *sigh*

I really enjoyed Supernatural last night...very entertaining I must say, and having two Deans on the screen was quite a treat for the eyes and should be illegal! Really loving this season so far and can't believe I just started watching faithfully midseason last yr. Luckily Fringe is on hulu! All the good shows are on Thursdays at the same times this season.

Kaitlin's been making me watch the Vampire Diaries with her since it's on before but I just can't get into it. So I'm at least making the effort for some mother daughter time even though the main vampire reminds me of a brooding Angel with his oh tormented me act, and I was wishing death of the blonde girl in the first episode since she annoyed me so much. Hee! Almost got my wish last night...almost. My favorite part is every time I think someones gonna get attacked I say, "well she's dead...or yep he's toast" and Kaitlin says,"OMG would you stop Mom". What can I say...It keeps me entertained. :P

Hope everyone has a nice relaxing weekend!
*hugs to the f-list*

Let's see...since I posted last:

♥ My baby girl started high school. *sniff sniff* I was feeling old until the first day when I was dropping her off and the guy directing traffic thought I was a student and sent me to student parking. :P

♥ I have a shiny new cherry red Dell laptop like in the commercial!
(lollipop, lollipop, oh lolli lolli lolli :D)

♥ I am completely addicted to True Blood and I'm already an Eric and Sookie shipper. Already reading fanfic and becoming sleep deprived like in the good ole Spuffy days.

♥ Finished all my canning for this year. I just have to finish freezing corn which should be done by tomorrow night.

I guess that pretty much covers it...

*HUGS* to the friend list

I've been a busy, busy girl the last couple of months with very little time to post. I think that's why I'm enjoying twitter quite a bit, since it's short little posts and I can keep up. But I felt it was time for a real update so here it goes...

In May, I went on Kaitlin's 8th grade trip to Virginia Beach, VA on a took almost 10hours...I will not be doing that again! The beach and Colonial Willamsburg were both nice, but I was exhausted for days after. I just can't beleive my babygirl is starting high school in August. *sniff*

In June, Mike and I watersealed the deck and worked around the house cleaning gutters, planting flowers and general yard stuff...the house looks better than it has in a long time which makes me very happy! It's so nice to have all the big chores out of the way, but I still have so much more to do, like going through clothes, and getting rid of a bunch of Kaitlin's things she never even looks at anymore.

And this month, well, my birthday was July 1st and Mike's was July 11th so we went to Myrtle Beach for 4days. Kaitlin brought a friend and it was so nice to just that Kaitlin's older she can do things she wants *within reason* without having me chase after her. So Mike and got to sit on the beach and just be, just thinking about it makes me smile. Hee!

I've been watching TrueBlood season far very entertaining, and I've watched seasons 1-3 of Gilmore Girls and waiting on S4 in the mail. I think when I'm finished with those I will be starting on Supernatural, and catching up on 4 books I need to read. Shouldn't I be like working in some exercise in there??? I guess I get that by picking green beans and corn at dads and I've already started up the canning again. Wheew! I said I was busy. ;)

Anywho, I hope my f-list is doing well, and I'll try to catch up on that this weekend.

It's been a busy couple of weeks! I've been canning tomatoes and today I started freezing corn. I was able to do 20 ears today, and I have about 30 more to go for this week and then I get to start all over again this weekend! This past Sunday, Dad, Kaitlin, and I picked 66 ears of corn, 35 tomatoes (that you have to hold with two hands), and a Walmart bag full of green beans! I am quite a bit worn out, but it will be so worth it when I can have fresh veggies all winter.

Kaitlin started school today...the 8th grade, I can hardly believe this is her last year in middle school. :( My baby is growing up way too fast. She's taller than me now!!

Anyhoo, that's a quick update on my week!

amoonchilde: (buffy so fly by eyesthatslay)
Yesterday was my day off and I took Kaitlin school clothes shopping, which of course I decided I needed some new school clothes too! :P I mean I'm sure she wouldn't want me driving her to school in something old, right? And new sunglasses were a must especially at buy one get one free! Then we splurged and we both got a Vera Bradley purse. I had never seen or heard about them until last month when I got a flyer in the mail from Merle Norman cosmetics, and low and behold they sell purses! Who'd a thunk it? Anywho, they are cloth and you can pick from many different patterns, styles, and accessories and they are so cute! Mine is a hipster, so you can adjust the strap and wear it across your body like a messanger bag only way cuter, and it's mostly black with a daisy print and it has wittle owls on it...I just love it! Hee!

It was a really nice day off, and we a accomplished what we wanted to and more!

Happy Friday!

I really can't believe it's been over a year since I've posted on LJ. To tell the truth it's kind of shocking...I didn't think it had been this long. Lots have happened in a year, and it has flown by.  I promised myself that starting in January I would start updating weekly and [personal profile] angstchicsuggested monthly, and I thought no problem...yeah...who was I kidding!! 

January 19th Kaitlin broke her left arm and had to be put to sleep to set it. Life then reverted back to when she was about 5. I had to wash her hair, help her dress, pack backpack, ect.  for 6 weeks. It was tough especially when you're out of practice. My back was killing me! Hee! She got her cast off last Friday and is doing fine, and now I think I have my little bit of free time least for now. Softball season is quickly approaching!

Mike got a fantastic job last June, and he's happy and I'm happy, and life is good! We bought a 2008 Jeep Wrangler 4 door which I lurrrvvvvve,  and it's mine (all mine) and I'm really looking forward to warmer weather so I can take the top off!!  

I know there's more to tell, but I'm having trouble thinking right now, and I have pictures to share as soon as I figure out how to use this nifty new LJ screen. 

*hugs f-list* 

edit---Happy 10th Buffy!! Oh how I miss you and the life we once shared! The Monday morning wild feeds, the spoilers, nekkid Spike, Spuffy,  the one hour phone calls before the show with my heifers [personal profile] angstchic, and [profile] eyesthatslay!

What wonderful memories *sniff*

amoonchilde: (smile red nails by eyesthatslay)
Last night I called [ profile] angstchic, *HUGS* and we FINALLY got to catch up!! It was crazy fun as always and there were discussions about sinking ducks, nekkid pork chops, and pod people. How could you not thoroughly enjoy those topics? HEE! :D

I decided to take the afternoon off work today so I could get Kaitlins clothes in some kind of order. The child has a ton of t-shirts but I can't find any of her long sleeved shirts. I'm starting to think she has out grown all of them and I haven't really replaced anything. *oops* I really am a good mom...really, just slightly scatterbrained lately. Now I get to add a shopping trip to the list for this weekend which could work in my favor. :P

Must finish the sorting of the clothes....

It's been a week and most of my goals have been kept except I missed 2 days out of 7 on the exercise...not too shabby methinks. I've lost 3 pounds, but more importantly I feel better! Also, I'm not struggling with sticking to the list and that is a good sign. :D Mike starts his new job on February 1st, and it's just the best news we've had in sooo long!! I can see the light at the end of the tunnel! I can't wait to start paying off some bills and putting money back into savings. It's just such a blessing, and prayers do get answered!!

Last night I had a wonderful phone chat with [ profile] eyesthatslay, *HUGS* it was so much fun and great catching up. We discussed LOST and the possible ships/plot theories and it's nice to know I'm not the only one lost. HEE! :P Now I just need to call [ profile] angstchic and catch up with her and all will be right in my little part of the world. I really miss our weekly calls before Buffy/Angel. Those were the days chickas!!!

Today we went to church, then Kaitlin went bowling with the youth group. They didn't get home until 3:30p and we headed straight to Wal-Mart, and got home just in time for Kaitlin to go back to church for the evening service. She is so tired and trying to finish up her math homework (that I tried to get her to finish yesterday, but nooooo...)and she is whining, it's NOT pretty people. *head desk* We are both learning a lesson from this...I will (from now on) force the homework issue, and she WILL DO AS I SAY!! Then there will be no more giving mommy a headache on Sunday night at 8pm.

Okay, enough yammering from me...I hope everyone is well and has a wonderful week!

*HUGS and SMOOCHES* to all!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, [ profile] whenbuffysmiles!!!! I hope you have a fantastic day!!

I actually had quite a nice weekend for a change!! YAY!

Friday: My friend (from work) and I went to see Elizabethtown, and we both loved it! I only had one gripe, and that was with the ending. It was too short/quick...I'm hoping the DVD will have the full version. Other than that all was good...there were parts that reminded me sooo much of my huge family on my dads side and I laughed out loud several times. Hee! Also, Kaitlin got her report card and she made straight A's for the 1st 6weeks of 5th grade. I am one proud Mama!!

Saturday: Errand/grocery shopping day...That part went fine, but the part where I said,"When we get home we are going through all the winter clothes..." not so much. Hee! I was a lazy slug the rest of the day and barely cooked dinner. :P

Sunday: Made vegetable soup and cornbread...and actually did a couple loads of laundry. That's an accomplishment, especially seeing how I had my jammies on until around 4pm. :D

Well that sums up my weekend, and I'm currently making my list of "things I have to do this week" right now. I lead such an exciting life! ;)

And before I forget...[ profile] angstchic, I lurve the new Goldfrapp CD...2,3, and 6 are my faves so far. Thanks again girl! *hugs*

Hope everyone has a lovely week!

We saw Charlie and the Chocolate Factory last Saturday, and I've been dying to use that heading. Hee! *is geek* Kaitlin and I absolutely loved the movie, and we had such a good time. I haven't laughed that hard since the last time I talked to [ profile] eyesthatslay on the phone. :P However, the hubby says he had more fun watching us than the movie.

Kaitlin, who is 10yrs old, has her first official movie star crush on none other than... Johnny Depp! Good choice I must say considering mine was on Shaun Cassidy. Bwhahaaa! She is just too cute...getting all doe eyed whenever he is on the screen, talking about him all the time, picking out notebooks for school with Captain Jack Sparrow on them. HEE!! It's so much fun being a girl!

I've been really busy trying to get all the back to school supplies/clothes for Kaitlin together, and I'm spending the rest of my free time working on my online Medical Coding class which has to be completed by 10/27/2005. I have 7 tests to go as of lastnight. Woot!

I noticed I missed a couple of birthdays since I've been away:


[ profile] jheller and [ profile] dravenscrow

I hope you both had a wonderful day!


Have a good weekend and *HUGS* to my f-list. I know everyone has been busy and I hope you are all well!
