Still no word on my brother.

I'm working on several things for an upcoming art show :-) I'm very excited as this is my *first* show. Hopefully the first of very many to come!!

I'm excited for the 1st mostly because it's payday but also because it's the 1st of JULY and July is my birthday month. I'm a huge dork and even at 23 I get excited about my birthday. My friend Nicole is flying out from PA to spend the week with me as my birthday gift :-) yay!

Hubby's birthday is also in July but he doesn't get as excited as me, actually he doesn't get excited at all. I'll be 24 this year, hub will be 28! Wow. When did that happen?

and my son is going to be 5 in Dec?! Holy Crap.

My brother passed out yesterday and the doctors think he has some sort of internal bleeding as well and anemia. On top of that he's at an army hospital it sounds serious since they took him over at 10:30PM last night.

so vibes/prayers/light a candle whatever you do would be MUCH appreciated.

Folk Bags

I'm craving German potato salad (which my GERMAN husband has never had) so i'm making it for dinner.

I got Folk Bags for the library today the fish bag caught my eye as something my kids would enjoy. I haven't had a chance to sit down and look at it yet.

I keep thinking of all the crap I have to do this weekend and then remember that crap..i have to WORK this is new :-D it's going to be very very nice to get out of the house though.

So I want a Nintendo DS Lite I need a little bar thingy so i can post my "nintedo fund" progress!! It's only 129 dollars but we're trying to budget things out and yeah...129 for some little toy isn't in there. However my birthday is July 23rd and I'm fairly certain that my parents are going to send some cash my way and instead of putting that towards bills I might just pop off and buy me a shiny new Nintendo and a game..hmmmm games. :-D

I can't find the yarn I bought right before we moved. Darnit.

I just took a new job and will be starting on Sunday so I'm trying to get all my knitting urges out now!!

I guess I have to go dig through the totes in the garage.

10 days

10 days from today i'm throwing a pirate-themed baby shower for one of my friends down here. Now the reason we're doing "pirates" is that 1) she's have a boy 2) she's obsessed with pirates and 3) we don't know any other women here.


it's going to be her and i, my husband, her husband...and all the rest of the single guys in their office.

I also went to the BX yesterday and bought a Fisher Price Little People Pirate play set. It came with a little pirate, and a treasure chest.

I'm also knitting a baby viking hat per their request. Doesn't quite go with the theme but whatever. Maybe i'll also make a baby-pirate-blanket..or something. I'm not sure a baby blanket should have skulls and cross bones on it though. Still thinking on that one.
