First Weekend of Spring

I get to spend the first weekend of the season of renewal with my children. What better way to celebrate the new season than with the fresh faces of my babies.

Last night, I picked them up from daycare and we went to McDonald's where we ate and they played for a while. We went shopping after to pick up a few things and get the Little Man a little something for his birthday. Princess picked out her bathing suit for the summer (which looks adorable). Today, we picked up some milk and mac n cheese at the store and then went bowling. Dinner was hot dogs with mac n cheese. Gotta love children.

Tomorrow should prove to be fun. It's supposed to be near 60 and sunny tomorrow so I figured we'd go to the park. They don't know yet,'s my little surprise for them. I can't wait to see their little faces when I tell them we're going. Maybe I'll even make fluffernutters and we'll picnic at the park. There's plenty of tables and such or I even have a blanket in the car.

Of course, to make this weekend over-the-top perfect (not that it's not perfect already)? Just need one more person...

I Am Such a Dork ♥

All it says under status is: "In a Relationship".

That's it.

And yet, this thrills me.

I am such a dork.

A Meeting and Such

I have a meeting this morning at Princess' school. Apparantly, she's having a little difficulty with her letters and sight words so we're meeting with her teacher and helpers to see what can be done to help her. She's a very smart little girl, but her mind just may not be mature enough for this. There is nothing else that she is having a problem with, so we'll see what happens. If she doesn't improve by June, there is talk of keeping her back. But, I'd like to try everything possible first. She's my girl after all. She'll get through this. And, if she needs to stay back, so be it, but I'd like her to give it a good fight, though. :)

In other news, of which there isn't much. Worried about a couple of friends that are dealing with a lot of shit right now. One needs a lot of support as she goes through a bump in life. OK, a pothole in life, but hey. Luckily, I've been where she is right now, so I can give her experienced advice. Now if she'd just listen to me...My other friend is dealing with health issues with his wife. She's very ill, chronically so. And, while I worry about her, I worry more for him. He's so busy taking care of her, that he forgets about himself. She's got pain medicine to take away her aches, but he has nothing. And while I can give him support, I wish I could wave a magic wand and make things OK. I wish I were able to gather them both up in a big hug and just hold them.

Finn and I are doing well. I really enjoy spending time with him. And just being with him makes me happier than I've been in a while. I wish I could tell him exactly how I feel, but I'm afraid to. I'm afraid of my feelings and I'm afraid he doesn't feel the same. I know he cares quite a bit, but I'm not sure just how much. I wish I could just tell him...

I Have a Video!

NursesNaturally ( ) had run a thread regarding the paranormal back around Halloween. I had posted in the thread saying that I do believe in the paranormal because I had seen my grandfather after he had passed. She asked if one day, she could use my story on her blog. I agreed.

Well, today, she featured my shop with a video! How seriously awesome is that????

See it here:

I think this is totally awesome!!!!!

Just A Couple of Misfits

This was how a fellow co-worker described Finn and I. That this is the reason why we get along so well and click.

We're misfits.

I suppose we are. I know I've had a hard time fitting in during my lifetime. Places where I thought I belonged and I really didn't. People who I thought were my friends that really weren't. Things I wanted to be and really didn't.

I have come to realize that I'm an artist. Artists seem to be misfits. We dance to the beat of our own drummer. This past weekend, Finn kept introducing me as a seamstress. I suppose that is what I am. I also keep expanding my chain maille abilities - pushing myself to learn different weaves.

I am comfortable being a misfit.

Busy Days

So, Finn got back last night. Yay! heehee

I went over for dinner and a movie. I made dinner, he provided the movie. Dinner? Mexican rice and fresh kielbasa. Movie? Boondock Saints. Which was awesome, by the way.

I missed him. More than I thought I would.

So, tonight, I finish sewing my new cloak. Don't worry, pictures will be forthcoming on Flickr. And, I have to hem my skirt a little bit...don't want it dragging in the mud.

Lots of work!

Just a question: why does my heart skip a beat when I catch him looking over at me?

Bed'll Be Cold

So, Finn left on his trip. He won't be back until sometime Tuesday. And then Friday, we leave on our trip.

I had told him I was going to miss him just a smidge.

He told me his bed will be cold.

Guess that's as good as saying "I'll miss you, too."

And it feels kinda good that I'll be missed.
