a bunch of gibberish

I spent this morning driving around trying to find an address to pick up free patterns and cooking light magazines. I saw an add on freecycle.org and someone was giving them away. She said she would leave the things on her porch this morning by 7:30 am. So I drove over there around 9, and nothing was there. I even emailed her last night to make sure she was putting them out, and she said she would. Then I thought, well maybe I have the wrong address, so I drove up and down the street (which is very long and stretched across a major road) to see if anyone had something on their porch resembling these items. I did, however, notice the millions of neighborhood watch signs around, thinking that someone was probably snooping and wondering why I was driving up and down the street!

Twenty minutes later I decided maybe it was time to leave and go check out the thrift store. I found a couple of interesting jars, and something for the swap, but nothing in the fabric department. I really need to go check out some more stores in the area! So after leaving the store, I decided to drive by the house again to see if the items were there, but no such luck. Hopefully she'll e-mail me back to let me know what's going on.

Anyway, I've been having a hard time finding the motivation to do any crafting. I mean, I really want to, but I've been feeling so tired by the time Isaiah goes to bed, that I hardly have any motivation to do so! Our house is still packed with moving boxes, so anytime that I have a free second, I feel I should be doing something to get the house in order. Ugh, the work of a housewife! I should be getting paid for this!
Last night I did manage to get one teeny tiny thing made. Hopefully there will soon be others to join her and I'll have something to show you.

In other news, I found this great coffee drink at Target yesterday. If any of you are Starbucks fanatics like I am, you probably know about the Java Chip Frappucino. My hubby loves them, and as soon as I saw this, I thought he'd love it. I think they were $3.99 for 6, which is just about the same as paying for 1 starbucks drink. It's a powdered mix that you add coffee, milk, or water to and either serve over ice or blend with ice. They're really tasty and highly recommend them!


And for a good laugh, yesterday after Isaiah went to bed I thought I'd plant some more seeds. It was so nice outside, I think it got up to 85! Anyway, after planting the seeds, I went inside to fill up the watering can and then went along, happily watering my plants. Then all of a sudden I felt a large wet drop, which I thought was bird poop because it couldn't possibly be rain with a bright sunny sky. Oh, you guessed it, a quick afternoon shower, and me standing outside watering the garden with a watering can. Hmmm... now my neighbors must really think I'm crazy!

Mmmmm...that java chip coffee drink looks so yummy. I'll have to put that on my shopping list for my next Target trip!

Being a mom is a full time job and you should really give yourself a break if you're not crafting. Unpacking boxes can be done slowly. If, after 6 months, you haven't missed the stuff in the boxes, you probably don't need it anyway. I'm embarrassed to say that I still have unopened boxes in the garage from our move FOUR YEARS AGO. There goes my Martha Stewart reputation...

I'm trying to figure out what it is that you sewed. It looks like a plane or a homemade sanitary pad ...

it is hard to get motivated to craft sometimes! the kids went to bed about 45 minutes ago - and here i am, still on the computer - with enough energy to check my email. oh well, sometimes it happens, sometimes it doesn't!

(and 80? it SNOWED here today!)
