Update for week of June 16th

Here is the latest update shot of the Astros project that I've been working on for hubby. I had hoped to finish it in time for Father's Day but with the kids and me being sick for about a week that threw all my good intentions right out the window. I didn't get a chance to work on it at all yesterday as the kids were in rare form.

For some reason for the past week or so Katie has decided she is afraid of the dark. She will go to bed but will wake up right about the time we're ready to lay down. I have to go in her room, turn the light on and sit there until she falls asleep. She's done that to me every night for the past week. Thankfully yesterday I was able to keep her from taking a nap so she was very tired and didn't wake back up. She did however refuse to go to sleep until after 11:00. Logan was up and running around until around 12:30 a.m. That little stinker decided he was going to eat around 10:00; couldn't get him to eat anything at dinner time so what the heck right? He also has a new knickname; Sir Poop-A-Lot. I think yesterday's record was five dirty diapers for him (not to mention the other two!) We had just got the alarm set for the night and out he runs saying diaper. At least he's telling me right????!! Some days I feel like all I do is feed them and change poopy diapers.

Somewhat of an update

No stitching last week or weekend due to the head cold I received from my lovable Logan. He does love to share with his Mommy! Glasses don't sit comfortably on my nose when I'm all stuffed up so all I could do was look longingly at my projects and listen to Marie ask over and over and over to start her project.

No biggie; I'm hoping today to get some stitching time in after some cleanup and playtime with the kids. Since they are all home for the summer I'm also looking for something that will take my mind off the chaos that I have no control over. I can't go around picking up after them ever single second of the day so I do it once in the morning and once at night. If I try to do more I only drive myself insane so I need something to take my mind of that. Besides my stitching, does anyone have any recommendations????!!!

Progress for Astro's project

I actually have more done than this but I don't have a more updated shot. I have been able to get the A totally outlined even though I did spend some time ripping part of it back out because the very first stitch I put in was off by one. I'm now trying to finish the gold color then on to completely fill in the A. I don't think I'm going to get this done in time for it to be framed for Father's Day but I don't think Curtis is going to mind. He's been checking out my progress and helping with Ryan when I work on it. I try to stitch on it when the game is on each night but that doesn't always happen. Last night we forgot the game was on early so we missed the first hour of the game but thankfully we didn't miss anything good. I was able to start stitching around 9:30 so I stitched for a little over an hour. If I can get Marie started on her new project I'm hoping to make time (about an hour) each day to work on it while she works on hers. If I can get an hour during the day and whatever at night I might get it done a week after Father's Day.

I'm really excited about getting Marie going on a project. Last summer when I tried to teach her how to stitch she didn't quite grasp it and was very frustrated. She did her class project last week on how to stitch and she did a great job and was very happy. She's been bugging me every day to start the new project so if she behaves today and helps me clean out her disaster area, I mean room, then we can start tomorrow. I'll try to get the pictures I took of her for her project on here in the next day or so; she was so cute. I think this is the first class project that she's been very excited about all year!
