What is this energy thing?

Gooooood morning!! Happy Friday!! I've been awake since at least 5 but just got up 1/2 an hour ago (7:30). 

Yesterday was a productive day! I went to work, shredded some papers, took myself to lunch, went to the thrift store, went to Wal Mart, came home, put all the camping stuff in the shed except for the ice chest the cat keeps sleeping on, cleaned a bunch of shit out of the shed and put it on the free table and someone came and took most of it! Woohoooo.

Of course then I was dead with a heat headache and useless the rest of the night and feel like I'm 100 today. But that's ok!

I got these fabrics at Wal Mart. I went to the one in Ceres kind of by my work (they are building a new big WM really close to work if we ever go back). This WM was so much nicer than my local one. I REFUSE to go back to the one in Manteca it is so disgusting and EVERYTHING is locked up.

Free pile, all the tents and sleeping bags and that tubing got taken WOOHOO old shit out of my house. Camp toilet will probably go to the dumps (ha). The box on the table has some porceilen dolls I made back in the 90's with my aunt. I think those are going to come back in the house next time I go outside if someone doesn't pick them up. I know hardly anyone likes dolls anymore but they are a little bit sentimental. Maybe eventually I'll donate them or not haha.

The kittens played and napped on the couch with me. Soaking them up since they will be gone soon! Melissa is coming to get this little guy some time today.

And Princess will be picked up on Saturday

Today's plan!!


Taking Daniel to the dentist around 1:30 (the older Daniel not the baby)

Melissa is coming at some point today not sure if before or after the dentist stuff. If before might go to lunch.

Need to vacuum/de-fur the cots we borrowed from my mom so I can take them back to her.

My brother is having a little party for our cousin who is visiting tonight so I may or may not make it over there for dinner depending on how everything goes. 

Should also do some laundry..

Get the ice chest out to the shed. Oh and the bassinet, my booth chair and some folding chairs too. Funny how there is room in the shed for things when stuff isn't just thrown in there.

Go through the stuff I pulled out to bring in the house that is stacked outside the back door. Anddd bring in the box of fabric the neighbor gave me. Pretty sure I'm going to redonate most of it since there is a lot of fleece.

Oh and work if I get some emails. I busted my ass on doing stuff for people the other day so I'm pretty much caught up for now.

Excited I'll be off 2 days next week too. May or may not post again before I get back!

Felix last full day

Good morning happy Thursday!

Today is our last full day with little man Felix! My daughter Melissa is going to take him home with her tomorrow. He is so adorable! It's a good thing I got them all homes already since they are at the super fun stage.

This was below me while I worked yesterday. Yes everything is a mess. The kittens dragged out all my yo-yo's out of that bag, played with them and napped on them haha. They've been having a great time.

My big kittens are definitely going to miss them when they are gone! They've already been looking for the two missing ones. Such cuties.

Today's agenda, go into work to get the mail (yes an hour of driving to get the mail which is almost always all for the other department) and check the voice mails. Go by Wal Mart to get some more kitten food and some ant spray since they are starting to show up. 

I got all the little camping stuff boxed up into TWO boxes that I had that matched and had lids, go me! I just need to finish cleaning the stove that I had soaking in oven cleaner outside. I pulled out a couple things to add to my free table (yep started making another collection) since we don't need 12 pots and pans in the camping box. Also we have a bunch of extra sleeping bags to pass on.

 Everything still needs to make it into the shed which I'm dreading because my husband is a horrible organizer and keeps messing it up out there. Plus there is a hole in the floor of the shed. Hmm I should add small piece of plywood to my list of stuff to buy today. Is wood still selling for the price of gold? I haven't been in Home Depot in awhile. 

Oh and it's hot here right now.

Yesterday I sent my spreadsheet to three people that kept bugging me to know info for work. I got back a WOW and a "you're always so organized". Why yes, yes I am. Someone has to be haha. Some day everything in my house will be organized well again. It used to be and then somewhere along the way I lost it. Mostly because I was outnumbered!

Last night when Scott got home I asked him if he was excited to go to Reno in two days. He tried to tell me it wasn't this weekend. I'm like uh well this is the last Sunday in July and it was booked in July so...  then he had panic because he has two days off work next week and has projects he's working on. I'm like peace out, I know everyone will just save everything for when I get back.

Goodbye to Spots & Tiger

Monday after work Spots and Tiger went to their new homes. I drove about an hour to meet up with my friend for the hand off. She then took them to her boss who is their new owner. I'm glad they got to go together and the house has kids so they will have fun!

Spots being extra cute with her bangs.


I tried to get a good last "family photo" of all four of them, someone kept hopping out of the box haha

This is the best I could get! They got so big!

Tiger was my favorite so I was sad to see him go but I'm not trying to be the crazy cat lady with 200 cats haha. Melissa is going to get Felix on Friday and Princess is getting picked up by my uncle on Saturday!  I lost Felix for like 1/2 an hour yesterday. Looked all over for him and then boom there he was just casually in the living room. No idea where he was hiding!

After work yesterday I unloaded the camping stuff out of Trevor's truck. You'd think someone else would have done it by then but no. I need stuff that was in the boxes!  Shlepped stuff in front of the shed, started washing some sleeping bags, brought in all the boxes to go through and wash everything. I think I am going to go buy some new fresh boxes since all my boxes are falling apart. That way they will all match too. I got side tracked when Jess came over with the baby and never got back to it so I have crap all over my house. I need to get that done today. I'm getting rid of all the extra sleeping bags. Tempted to get rid of ALL the sleeping bags since the ones Scott and I use are 25 years old. Hard to believe that!! Time sure flies for some stuff.

My forehead and nose are peeling. I slathered on a ton of moisturizer today since it felt like I was decaying haha. 

Trevor is home today even though he usually works on Wednesdays. His schedule is all mixed up. WHERE IS MY TIME ALONE! Love him but love quiet time too.  I'm going into the office for "office coverage" tomorrow which basically means I have to get the mail. Freaking stupid. Probably work on putting new apps into folders again. We shall see!

Ok off to be productive, hope you all have a great day!

Camping Isn't Always Fun

 Good morning happy I'm all alone in the house day! This is the first day I have been alone since last Monday. Like a whole week Monday. Although I did have about three hours in the car yesterday.

We went camping up in Hermit Valley last week (Wednesday-Sunday) and it was like the worst camping trip ever. Everyone was fighting and the water was low and gross on the edge so people were complaining about that. 

We borrowed some cots from my mom and it was horrible sleeping on it. Melissa came on Friday and brought a pump (ours broke while in use earlier in the week) and someone blew up an air mattress for me to use. OMG so much better. I am not a back sleeper and move around way too much for a cot.

I was ready to go home on Thursday haha. I think I am done camping for AWHILE. Ditto family trips. Why spend a bunch of money on a trip for everyone to be grouchy. I can just spend money on my OWN trip and have fun ;)

Jess brought this inflatable pool which was genius for the baby to play in with his toys. He is crawling now though so he kept escaping and trying to eat rocks and dirt. So hard with a little one who wants to crawl!

The dogs are done camping too. They are so spoiled haha.

Baths in the box! This boy loves water, doesn't even care if it is cold.

My friend Dee bought this little camping chair for the baby shower. I think it has been the most used item. The tray did break the last day which was sad but it was great having it. 

When we walked to the little "beach" that we like I put Snookie in Scott's backpack. She stayed in this Zen state the entire time haha. I remembered the last time we took her back there I had to carry her almost the whole way. This was much easier. I moved it to my back on the way back and she was equally as happy.

Having fun for 5 minutes ;)

The edge of the water was like gross mud. Smelly too. First time it has ever been like that in all the years we've been camping here.

Snookie sunning herself after I got her wet

I took my folding wagon and that was another plus for the baby. 

Snookie catching a ride while we put the baby to sleep in the stroller

We went to Lake Alpine on Saturday (they cancelled the big bike ride that was supposed to have the road closed due to a fire up north) and played in the water a little. I mostly played on my phone since there was some service. Bad me but I was ready to check out haha.

Smores, campfire, babies and then fighting kids. Ahhh bliss.

I came back to work yesterday to over 100 emails. My boss is on vacation now too. We still need to unload all the stuff in Trevor's truck since we were exhausted when we got home and then Scott went to work yesterday. It was like 900 degrees here yesterday too. I told myself I'd work on it when it got cooler but instead I was just a loaf on the couch. Gotta work on cleaning everything up and putting it away today!

Back to Busy!

 Hello Happy I Only Work Today And Then I'm On Vacation Day!

I am off tomorrow but we are leaving on Wednesday to go camping. Tomorrow will be pack and make potato and mac salad days.

I'm going to go grocery shopping after work today I think.

Friday I watched the little man for a couple hours. He was all chilling in his playpen while I vacuumed and checked for stuff for him to choke on. He is crawling all over now!

This picture cracks me up Tiger was like I'll have this size bottle please! After we get home from camping they will go to their new homes :( I will probably cry.  My friend is going to come take care of them while we are gone.

Friday night they had a simple spaghetti dinner in the kitchen at the club house and I made it just in time to get a plate. Everyone always raves about the woman that cooks so much of the club food but eh I don't really think it is that good lol.  Mostly picked the meat out and threw the rest away.

Afterwards I hung out in the bar! They did a pre-grand opening which sounds stupid but it was fun. Did some dancing which is the most I've moved since Covid became a thing. (PS That girl on the right with the bun is the one from the FB post the other day, that was a bit awkward but we both acted like nothing ever happened). 

Saturday I played around in my sewing room and got an order for some mug rugs. I was out of the fusible fleece I use so darn I had to go to Joann's. I remembered to pick up some blue and pink threads too. I'm always out of those.

Here are the mug rugs, she wanted them bigger and "no borders". Well that is easy. I need to pack those up and get drop them in the mail today. I had 2 orders of my patchwork zip bags on Etsy too! One person bought 2 and another bought 6!  I always get happy that someone likes my funky stuff haha.

Sunday I woke up and remembered it was the voting day for the club! I went down and voted and hung out for them to get a quorum. Then we all came back at 2 to see who won and vote for officers. So a whole weekend of socializing with the neighbors. The dues increase bylaw passed so lets see what our club does with double the dues money.  Hopefully not just waste it on dumb shit.

Sunday I printed out our camping list and went over it and then the boys and I went to Wal Mart and spent a shit ton of money haha. Oh but first we went and had an early dinner at La Villa our favorite little hole in the wall Mexican food place. I could go for another plate for lunch ;)

I had a ton of emails of new apps to put in the computer this morning for this stupid program they are making us do. I'm probably going to die when I open my email when I come back to work next week. I already did my time card and my away email message. Five hours to go haha.

Patchwork Zip Bags & Mother In Law Visit

Good morning Happy Friday!
 I just have to work today and Monday then I will be on vacation for almost a week.

It took me all day to get these finished yesterday. I ended up taking off the yo-yos I put on 2 of them after I was done. Picky picky lol.

Yesterday I ended up having a small work project that took up part of the day and new applications keep rolling in so I have to input those. I can't wait until our funding is done for this year so we can have a tiny break.

Last night Scott had to go over to his mom's to check something on the hot water heater so I went with him. I had been thinking of his mom all day the day before. I had a nice visit while I was there. The poor house is just tired and so many things need to get fixed but they just keep taping things together. His sister was worried about how hard the back door got closed because the big window next to it is cracked. I said just slam the door and you can have a new window. I don't understand all the taping things together. Just fix the window. Drives me crazy.  Other than that his mom seemed in good spirits. She was mixing up her stories a bit that she was telling. I think she forgets I was around when things were happening haha.

Nothing too exciting going on today. Oh they are going to have a spaghetti dinner down at the club house and a soft reopening of our bar. FINALLY. The guy who is going to run it is kind of squeezy though.  Maybe he'll quit after a bit and someone else will take it over ;) Not sure if I'm going to do the dinner or not. $10 for spaghetti and I don't really even like spaghetti so we'll see. 

That's all I've got so have a nice weekend!

Sewing! Kittens! Drama!

 Good morning happy Thursday! Looks like another slow work day today. Yesterday I got my bag finished up. I was just about done when I realized I forgot to put pockets in it. Darn. I like how it turned out though. It has a lot of time put into it but didn't cost anything to make since it is all scraps. I even used small pieces of batting and joined them together. Well the lining wasn't scrap but that's it. I think that is why I like this bag pattern, no hardware to buy for it.

I made a matching zip bag that I didn't take a picture of.  Then I took the rest of the strips I had and started making these zip bags with. I just need to cut the linings and put them together. Although I think I want to put some yo-yos on a few. I need to figure out where I put the ones I have made up and see if any of those will look good.

Here comes some kitten spam! They were so cute yesterday. I will miss them when they are gone but they are a lot of work so I'll be happy to have "less work" haha.

Almost got everyone looking

They all decided to take a nap on the window ledge. Gah every time I looked they were even cuter.

They also started sleeping on my scrapbook tote. Won't all fit there for long.

My two friends that I hand out with and email everyday went out on one of their boats on Monday. They included me in all their emails and text messages about it. I didn't get invited to go (I know they were mostly just taking the kids all out) but I was getting all the info about the trip. Finally I drew myself in on the last picture I got yesterday and sent it back. Sheesh. Like if I'm not invited I don't need to know you're going to have tuna sandwiches. Love them but wish they would have done a separate email to each other.

Last night Trevor was making dinner and we were out of oil so he took my car to go to our little store. After he got back one of the neighbors TAGGED ME ON FACEBOOK to tell me he was speeding by their house. I was like hey maybe you could have just messaged me and I talked to him and he said he wasn't speeding. She's like I had 4 people in my yard. Ok? What was he going like 22 miles per hour. People need to get a life. I had two people message me to complain about HER.  What a bitch. She's a loud mouth drunk at all the parties but I don't go around putting her up on FB. 

Anyhow, that was my evening.  Oh and our power went out at like 11:30 last night. Someone MILES away got in an accident and it took our power out. Luckily it was only out for about an hour. Haven't seen if the people in the accident died or not. I imagine that was pretty bad to knock power out for miles.

Going to finish up those little bags today then I don't know what. I should probably clean but that's no fun ;)

Office Space & Sewing

 Hello! Happy what day is it? Oh yes Wednesday!! Things are all off kilter with that Monday off. Trevor is home today, I'm assuming since he worked yesterday. Usually he's been working Monday, Wednesday, Friday.

If you know me in person you know I'm a bit of a procrastinator (haha) when it comes to things with dates. Especially things with moving dates. Why spend a ton of energy doing something for some date that might not even happen? We're supposed to be getting a new office printer/copier and my boss wants me to find somewhere to take the old one. I called one place and they said they won't take it. We have like 0 men in our office that are MEN who could actually move this thing. I'm not sure what she wants me to do other than call somewhere that says they can take it. But then what? Who is going to pick this big bitch up and put it in a truck and take it somewhere? The new one isn't going to be here until mid August now so I figure we'll worry about it in August. She just emailed me checking up on the plan. What plan? I don't have a plan lol. Lets just hit it with some hammers and throw it in the dumpster.

I keep waking up with my neck and shoulders hurting. Ugh I'm so old. Why does shit have to hurt.

Here are all the beachy mug rugs I made for my friend to choose from. She picked 7 and a co worker picked 2 so just a few left to add to my craft booth supply.

Yesterday I worked on turning this

into a tote bag. It's funny it looks like a shirt here. Just need to do some top stitch quilting and then put all the pieces together. (Front/Back/Straps) I made myself go to bed last night instead of staying up all night finishing it.

I noticed yesterday little Spots has a face on her back. Too funny. She kind of has a heart on her side. Kind of looks like wings too. I got them some dry kitten food now. Trying to get away from bottle feeding them since we won't be home for part of next week. I think I only bottle fed them once yesterday. They acted like they were starving to death when I was feeding them but they kind of always do that haha.

Work is super slow it looks like and we have an other one of those I'm the janitor required to go to the tech meeting teleconferences in a few minutes. Might get that bag finished sooner than later ;)
