Today was one of those reminder days that I like to bite off more than I can handle. I started the day by taking my 3 rambunctious boys to the fabric store. I know you read that sentence and thought, "WHAT are you THINKING? YOU MUST have a death wish!" Anyway, I survived and more importantly, so did they! Now WHY did I have to go do that today? wellll.....
Mason is about to move to a twin bed.... which means he needs some bedding... My mom gave me some cute fabric, so I decided to make a patchwork quilt for the topside and use the other fabric for the backing. I spent a few hours cutting out the pieces....
And a few more hours sewing the pieces... I got 10 out of 35 complete without any major hang-ups.
This used up a good portion of my day. Although I was able to make it to my book club tonight (thanks to my mom-in-law, the babysitter).

And you thought Oscar was grouchy? beware of the unfed Mason-Baby!!!
Anyway, Mason has also discovered cameras and what they're all about. He now poses for pictures while squeezing a "chis" (aka cheese) through his hammy little grin.
He still ransacks the house at any given opportunity and is constantly demanding something.
His current obsession is Thomas... the show, the trains.... everything. He loves his "choo-choos!!!"
As I glared out my living room window this morning, I was saddened for all the green tomatoes on the vine that are about to ripen.... I know that once the sun begins to redden their skin.... my little WORM FRIENDS will show up and EAT MY YUMMY tomatoes....
So what did I do? I beat them to the punch!!!!
So for our afternoon snack.... we munched on fried green tomatoes. They were YUMMY... I must say.... But I think most of all.... Mom is pleased that those FREAKING WORMS didn't get a chance at these beauties!
Maybe I should hunt them down and fry their little wormy behinds!!! Cooper would love that!
He starts Kindergarten next week..... the soccer mom days are about to present themselves...
A house full of boys... including our very own "bat baby" (who is totally obsessed with the garbage lately).
We must take advantage of daddy while we have him. His schedule is so crazy this semester, the only times we'll see him is when he's home to sleep. With a full load of classes and 2 jobs.... CRAZINESS! Keep him in your prayers.

A package came in the mail for me today...... Oh I cant wait to crack this baby open and spend several hours buried in the Bella-Edward saga..... I may not blog for a few days once I get started.

anyway, Sean and I have had the stomach flu this week. Monday night HAD to be one of the worst nights of my life thus far. as I sat on the toilet with a bucket between my knees, Mason was screaming (non-stop) and Sean was keeping him awake with his whining and complaining... Nick was working and lovely Cooper slept through it all.... for 4 hours!!!!!!! I finally fell asleep (in the bathtub) and that's how my darling husband found me....
I just have to give HIM (my hubby) a huge cyberhug and mucho thankyous for taking care of us for a few days! There aren't many husbands who would take care of their sick wife and child, while dealing with 2 healthy ones (for those with young children, you know that they're more work than the sick ones!)... all the whining and complaining, not to mention the bathroom flooded with Sean's puke (he missed the toilet).... he cleaned it all without a complaint... I LOVE this man! I was seriously useless.... and I'm actually still a little tipsy, but hopefully I'll be able to clean up this place tomorrow and get life back up and running again.
One happy aspect to my illness... the house was nearly SPOTLESS and all the laundry washed, completely folded and put away just hours before my illness set in. One of the first thoughts that came into my head when I began throwing up was, no kidding, "at least the house is clean."
