Crochet

I've been teaching myself how to crochet through YouTube. So far, I've mastered the granny square and have decided to make a granny square blanket. It's coming along nicely, I just hope to get it finished by Halloween. It's so much easier than knitting. I don't have to worry about starting over if my hook comes out.

Shorthand Version Update

So this update is going to be jumbled. I'm trying to keep up with it, but I've been distracted. Good luck with this shorthanded version.
  • Sunday: We went swimming in Sean's pool. My hair has been destroyed from lack of conditioner. I can't even untangle it without ripping it up.
  • Monday: We went to Metairie to visit Jessie and Joey and eat sushi. The Champion Roll is enormous! And so so so delicious. We came back to Sean's and played Clue.
  • Tuesday: Toby peed on the floor, Leah learned how to destroy climb over the baby gate stating proudly, "I geet out!" while James kept reminding me, "We're good children!" So Zac purchased another gate.
  • Wednesday, Fallyn came over and brought Disney Princess Monopoly. The guys had a blast, obviously.

Christina's Baby Shower

I've been in Louisiana with my trio since yesterday. The kids enjoyed their new matching booster seats (thanks to Mom) and I listened to Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix via audio book (I'm addicted!). I hope to finish listening to the rest of the books before Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 comes out. The kids have been awesome tonight, aside from some jumping on the air mattress.


I drove to Pearl River for Christina's baby shower. I can't believe she's pregnant! It's just crazy. It's also crazy to go back in the town where I grew up. Everything looked so different... I stayed after the shower to help clean up and spend time with Christina. The church even looked familiar, but smaller. I was 11 or 12 the last time I was there.


After the shower, I decided to drive past the house I grew up in. It doesn't look the same. I even saw the tree I climbed, the blackberry patches I picked from, and the path where I rode my bike. I had so many childhood flashbacks of running down the street in the summer to get to Daina's house while trying to avoid blisters from the steaming street. Nostalgia galore.

I drove back to Covington and Fallyn went with me to Blockbuster to rent Red Riding Hood. I bought the kids a Mario and Peach go-kart figure to play with. They've been racing them back and forth in Sean's hallway.

Swimming

Zac and Alex grilled burgers today and the kids played in the kiddie pool. Katie brought Spencer to visit and we watched Alex and Zac shoot fireworks from the bedroom window until bedtime.


Katie and I drank coffee and watched Hoarders until she had to go. I need to hang out with her more often.
