I have exciting news!!!!

I can officially fit into my pre-pregnancy jeans!!!!!! YAY! I can also fit into my pre-pregnancy under-things!!!! I am soooo excited! The scale really hasn't changed, although I did loose that plateau I was on. YAY! I think it was that TOM.
This week was busy, to say the least. Working a couple of extra hours because of a couple of deadlines for work. Had to get the gunsleeves finished for my dad. Plus the regular house work that needs done. I hate letting that go. Had to make baby food. Yada yada yada.
Speaking of the gunsleeves, my dad got them today and he wants me to make some more to sell at the flea market down in Gallup. Cool. How much do I charge, how many do I make? I have so many questions. What if no one buys them? This is so awesome, I was hoping to start a little sewing biz, but didn't know how. Didn't know if I was good enough. Guess I'm at least a little good enough for the gun slingers in our family.
Tonight I want to get done: I need to fold diapers. Put away the dishes and re-load the dishwasher. Wash my gym clothes. Figure out a special breakfast for tomorrow (Andrew's preaching, gotta make something special for him.) I want to do my nails. I don't get to do it often, but I want to do it before the summer's over. I want some color on my toes (and not spilt baby food either) while I can still wear sandals.
Oh, I got my hair cut today. That was fun. She cut about an inch off. It needed it. I am so very thankful for the gift card my friend got me. My hair looks so much better now. Thank you! Oh, that reminds me, I need a shower. I have little tiny bits of hair all over me. Itchy itchy itchy.
It's warm and muggy here. It was trying to rain earlier, but I'm not sure if it's just going to think about it, or do it. I love having the windows open at night.
I saw they have mums out at Meijer. I've been wanting mums to put out in the front of our house for a couple of years now. I never get around to it. I wonder, how do mums reproduce? Is it a bulb plant? Or seed? Hmmmm. I'll have to research that.
I've been looking into homeschooling. I go back and forth on it. I see the benefits and want to do it, but the only thing that's holding me back is wanting time to myself. But when I really think about it, I'll have had these children with me everyday for the 5 years leading up to them starting school that what difference will it be to have them with me after they start school? It's going to be the same. Plus I get time to myself now. So I guess the only other thing would be, how do I homeschool with other babies? But I know even in that I can set the older kids up with something to do while I nurse or take care of the baby. Maybe we'll hs all year long so that I know I"ll get the right hours in even if we have to take some time off. We can have longer breaks. Or shorter weeks.
Well it's eight o'clock. I'd better wrap this up and get to it.
Blessings y'all!
