New Auctions

Cruising right along, except for that laundry thing! The books are unpacked, the game cabinet has been unloaded and the new auctions are up for some diapers and homeschooling books.

Working Today

We were immensely blessed with an opportunity for DH to work today for a friend. He’ll be paid for it, and combined with what has been raised so far, it will go toward that mortgage. I am thankful that I am beginning to see a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel. Perhaps it’s not the train after all :)

So, I’ll be working today, too.

Yesterday we did some good cleaning in the living room, consolidating some shelves to open others. When we brought in the clothes, we also brought in the school books for the next year. I will put those on the open shelves for sorting. I may even find some books that I can put on ebay. My game cabinet has also needed sorting for quite some time, but I can’t leave all the stuff out while I do that. I’ll fill the bins the books are in with that stuff, then I can sort through it, and the cabinet will be usable again. I’ll keep the washer and dryer going while I do all this. Of course, all this is dependent on the little tyrant we all know and love as DD#5.

I did finish off a ball in her blanket yesterday, by the way. It’s almost time for the April yarn report, and I will start putting that together tonight. There’s not a lot to report, but I like to have it all together anyway.

Okay, time to get cracking while the baby has a full belly.

Validated

So, I mentioned to DH last night that I was frustrated because it seems all I do is pump and feed, and rarely am able to accomplish what I want to get done around the house. And he looked at me, and said, “And how big is that baby” (Over 9 pounds now, ladies and gents), “and how healthy is she?”

Yes, I have been validated. What I do is important. That’s good to know since all I got done yesterday off my list was finishing the back of DD#5′s sweater. That consisted of 15 rows over 66 stitches, and I had to stay up til 2AM to do it.

All that cleaning

did not happen! I hope I get points for good intentions, because all that got accomplished was pumping milk, feeding the baby, washing one load of dipes, visiting Grandmother, knitting 15 rows on the back of DD#5s sweater and making DD#1s long over-due birthday cake.

So far today, I have pumped, started the dryer and fed/am nursing the baby. The good news is that I really can’t get any further behind :) Right? Please tell me I am right!

Ok, so today, I am expecting Lisa for a visit. She said she was bringing yummy real eggs from her real chickens. We’ll have breakfast for dinner again! The eggs are so rich you don’t even need butter on your grits!

I’d like to get some cleaning done, and also finish the back of DD#5s sweater, and work on DD#5s blanket while it is cool enough to do so. Then, in my (wildest) dreams, I am imagining casting on for that shirt I told you about a couple days ago. Wouldn’t it be awesome paired with this shrug? It will also be for DD#5, since that’s the yarn I have now. Besides, she is behind in knitted goodies. The other kids have several years on her, see????

DH went this morning to pay the water bill, since it was payday. That took a big chunk of his check, but it’s the last thing that needed to be handled before we can make serious headway on the mortgage. I tell you, I never thought I would see the day when we paid 100 bucks a month for water. Either I am old, or country-fied, ’cause you know this little town didn’t even have public water when I grew up here. And flushing the toilet was also free. Now, even my Grandmother’s house has public water, and she lives in a town smaller than this, with her nearest neighbor a tenth of a mile away.

Selling, selling, sold!

What shall I do today?

Warning: Serious posting here

Tuesday, we received notice on the house. I knew we were behind, of course, but thought I had another 30 days to play catch-up. While I have been the one to handle things like this in the past, I turned it over to DH. I told him that I am already stretched so thin I am having to patch my skin in places. I just can’t handle anything else. Now, I have 2 responses to financial stress and they are cleaning and not cleaning. As in, deep cleaning and purging of excess stuff, or sitting on my duff ignoring everything around me. I mopped the floor last night, so I guess we know which way I’ll be going this time. I usually let the local thrift store benefit from my purges, but perhaps I should try to sell some stuff this time. Gotta love ebay. In the mean time, there’s all this:

I do have some stash I could part with, as well, and I am taking offers on these lots:


Just one skein


Some of these are wound already


3 balls of this

You can check the stash page for details on any of this. I can let some sock yarn go as well, but I don’t have individual pics of that. If you see something you want, let me know. I am hitting “publish” real quick before I chicken out.

A kitchen is nothing without electrical appliances today. Whether it is a dish-washer, a washer dryer, a fridge or toaster ovens, everything is an essential part of the kitchen itself. However accessories like wine refrigerator one can do without.

I used to be dishcloth cotton
