Ok, back to posting regularly.
Today was a good day. Husband made it out the door on time even though he woke up around the time he should be leaving. LOL I got two loads of laundry done, got daughter packed up for overnight stay at cousin's house, played with both girls before taking one to cousin's house, and then worked 6-10pm tonight at the department store. YEAH .. I feel accomplished.
I'm glad hubby felt that tonight was a mac n cheese blue box blues night. I always feel bad but it's like I don't think about dinner until he's home and then when it's a night I am working, I don't have time to go back in the day and thaw out any meat. Sam's club, love ya! I buy all my chicken and ground beef fresh and repackage it for the freezer myself and so far, it's been working great. I'm ready to do some serious meal planning for something other than chili, chicken and rice, tuna noodle casserole, grilled cheese with tomato soup and the occasional hot dog and beans routine. Oh I cook a lot more than those recipes but it seems those are standby favorites that get repeated too often for my tastes any more.
My dear oldest daughter is having a special overnight with her cousin due to holiday vacation. Dear honey and I are enjoying some quiet as I guess lil' girl woke up and got back to sleep before I got home. So what do we two do with ourselves now that we are "alone" together? Well, he's playing Madden 2004 and won't stop the game until he's beaten the computer 194 to 7. And here I am posting my a conversation of sorts that I could have with him if he weren't preoccupied. LOL I think I will actually go crochet after I get done. I broke out my crochet hook today and made a preemie hat. My aunt sent me her holiday newsletter depicting all the things she has done in 2004 and she has joined a group at church called the Knit Wits who crochet for kids with cancer, preemies, and other people in need. I like the name of their group! And now I know where I get it from in that I have crocheted many items to give to the Children's hospital in town and to the hospital where I had my late son. I've even sent thumbless mittens, hats and blankies to women I only knew through the internet because they were either military and their husband wasn't there to share the joy of their new baby or to gals I knew could use something to celebrate their baby. I have so much yarn at home I could open up my own store! lol
I've been trying to think of how I could market my baby blankies on Ebay to come up with funds for PF. Just to say that the blankies I would sell, all proceeds would go to benefit the PF foundation in their quest for finding help for those that suffer with pre-eclampsia/eclampsia. Or maybe I could put items in with the church bazaar and ask that I run the booth separate of the proceeds that go to the church, that way I can have the money go to PF as a donation from my church. Or.... just beg and grovel that anyone and everyone I know give what they can spare to PF and call it a day. LOL Just random babblings.
They are putting a lot more clothing on sale at the department store for which I work. A lot of kids clothes are going on clearance which makes it a nice deal for me because I get my discount on top of the clearance price. There was a cute little sweatsuit outfit that said Camp Baby Snoopy on it that was just adorable. I'm such the sucker for baby things.

Well, I'm heading off to bed, Love and luck to all!
