It wouldn't be called work if it wasn't work...

SSSSSSSSSSSSooooooooooo...I had to quit my job---some dumbass came to work drunk and decided it was a good idea to say some really yucky and bordering on harrassing things to me...yea...I didn't think it was a good idea either. So now I have to find another part time job.

So with no job, I have no scrapbooking-cricut-papercrafting budget---gosh dang him to heck...yea...I said it. So next week it is off to a local temp. agency to hopefully find something part time. But in the mean time there is something stuck in my head that I just can get out...

Cricut...well yes...but Cricut doesn't invade my dreams

Crafting...well yes again...but that is just a hobby.

Esty and the homemade revolution

OH MY GOD...I found out about Esty late last year but didn't really give it another thought because I was too caught up in blogging and writing for all my blogs. But now that I am kind of out of that and actually getting into my hobbies again (and have the money to fund them once I am working again)...holy cow. I am in love. People make the coolest things...

ok...this is the last thing more!

And I have an idea for a shop. And here in small town Iowa...I think they need something like this...well...small town Iowa needs all the help it can get. But I mustn't rush anything like I tend to do. I must research, and research some more, and get an inventory up so I actually have something to sell once I start selling. But I can't get it out of my head. My idea invaded my dreams. I don't remember exactly what happened but it involved Etsy and all her homemade goodness.

And besides, if you talk with my man, he will tell you I was to have a home business of my own but have more schemes than a business of my own. Hopefully this will happen and work out!

Stimulus Payment Update...


Mommy Monday Update

So I have been really bad on my blogging since the whole My-Gall-Bladder-and Liver-and Kidneys-Hate-Me health issue. But I have been trying to do better...and to narrow down the hobbies (addictions) I am going to have. And even that has been next to nothing since I got my evening (very very late evening) part time job.

But I am going to do my best to do updates on my family every monday. So here goes...

Kincaid and the horrible hair cut I gave him for picture day---yea---this haircut is saved forever.

Corrine for V-day---late I know but look how cute she is!

Connor lovin' the camera!

Liam lovin' the camera!

This is our volcano weekend project. We still have the volcano and use it alot!

This is short and sweet but I had to start somewhere. I hope to be back soon...maybe even visit some old bloggy friends!

I just can't help it...I think it is an addiction...

I think I can't help but to go too much...

so i have the 4 kids and the hubby...

there is always never-ending housework...

now i have a part-time job (cause we are trying to buy the house we live in and need all the money we can get)

but don't for get the scrapbooking/papercrafting hobby I have wanted to get into for years and now have the little extra money to do so

but now with food prices ( and i think the older you get the more you just have to have one or more of these)...i am starting a veggie garden...kind of a big one. We have a double lot in the little town we live in and there is already a large patch of earth fenced off for just a veggie garden.

So let us review--me and my family

Where are you, beloved stimulus package?

I don't mean to sound like a greedy lady, but George (who know which one) said me and my family would have our beloved one time payment today. So...where is it? I kinda need gas and food--even though that is not what is was meant for.

What about you? Have you gotten yours yet? Am I the only one wondering and waiting today?
