I was somewhat on a roll there for about 2 seconds with my blog posts.  I'm still doing better than I had been but I will try to improve a little more.  lol

I actually have done a little bit of stitching but have no pictures to show as it's been VERY LITTLE stitching.  The fact that I got over that mojo slump at all makes me feel good even if I don't do a lot.  I am currently stitching Witchy Kitty by Brittercup Designs out of the Halloween JCS edition.  I also finally received the Christmas Ornament issue and have been drooling over it for the past few days.  I'd say that is a good thing and must mean the mojo is back!

Kids are all doing great at school or so they tell me.   I will know for sure as soon as I sign up for the online grade review that the district has or get their interim reports whichever happens first. ;)  I need to actually go into the school to sign up and by the time I get there in the afternoon it's too late and the morning drop off is crazy.  So why don't I just do it while I'm volunteering you ask??? Well, that's easy.....because they haven't let me volunteer yet.  They started out trying to get to know Logan and then see how he does each day, then the teacher took time off to go to her daughter's wedding.  After that the kids got sick and shared with me and then I had my allergies freak out.  Hopefully by next week we can start with the one day a week to see how it goes. 

Yesterday I had a little scare.  Now I can laugh at myself but at the time I was a bit terrified. lol  I dropped the kids off, ran by Marie's school to drop off some glass baby food jars for science class then went to do some grocery and other shopping.  I got home with my coffee and sat down to relax at the computer.  I got on facebook and was trying to type something to a friend and realized my eyes were acting strange.  Rather, one eye was at least.  I had a blind spot that slowly transformed into a pulsing shape.  While slightly blind in one eye I freaked out a little, called my mom and tried to answer my husband's instant messages.  By the time the pulsing started I finally realized what the problem was and jumped up to grab some tylenol.  It's been so long since I had a migrane give me a warning that I didn't realize what it was at all. lol   Seems like for the last couple of years, those buggers just come out of left field and knock me on my butt with no warning and tons of pain.  Yesterday, it decided it felt sorry for me and gave me a warning.  Brainiac that I am, it took for the pulsing and pain to start before my brain would turn itself on. lol  I'm VERY lucky that the tylenol did the trick.  Usually I have to take a prescription pain med that makes me loopy and I HATE to take that and won't unless I'm home for the day and DH is close to or at home.    NOTE TO SELF:  spotty blindness in one eye means grab the tylenol and drink a bottle of water.  Don't think about it.....JUST DO IT!

I need to get the house picked up and the laundry started....why can't they design a house that will pick up after its own self????  Make the laundry do itself too while I'm dreaming big. lol  I hope to have some time to sit down and put a few more stitches in Witchy Kitty today.  It's nice to relax and stitch even if it's only for 30 minutes.  Every minute counts!

Have a great Wednesday!

Oh how scary. I have never had a migrane, but I had a friend who use to get them and it was awful for her too. She said that sometimes it would mess up her vision and all she would be able to see was bright light. Thank goodness you caught it in time. Hope all is well with you and your family.

Glad to hear you got your mojo back even if you only got a little bit of stitching in. Every little bit helps. I hope the kids are doing as well in school as they say they are, and that you get to volunteer soon! Sorry to hear about the migraine. Mine don't give me any warning either, although they are much less frequent now that I'm older. Glad you nipped yours in the bud!!!
