just feeling weepy this evening...despite the delivery of 3 dozen Krispy Kreme donuts! and that wonderful Red Wheel Chocolate Silk pie in the fridge...

I can always justify buying food from fundraisers since well, we can eat it. haven't physically seen my husband or daughter today....had a phone call from Kevin on my way home, and texted Kate & she replied. it's getting dark early. brought in my 'houseplants.' they're actually basement plants since I'm too lazy to drag them back upstairs. kinda chilly. hoody weather. I'm home alone, tried to watch Bigfoot stuff, just not feelin' it. sewed a bit. got out of the mood for that. did a few pots and pans. threw a load in washer, then dryer. turned on my amazing outside Halloween light display. cleaned the front windows and some assorted pictures and the tv and computer screen and bathroom mirror. thinking I'll try reading? maybe with some hot tea? I'm not bored. I'm restless. sometimes it feels like life is just speeding by outside the window and all I do is hang out in a hog barn all day, then come home and hang out in a house. really should do some genealogy blogging....have tons of stuff to share with the world wide web, but just occasionally share a pic of an interesting moment in a relatives life posted on facebook....relatives on my branch and not so much on my branch.

if only I had a talent....

I have liked and followed a bajillion facebook& etsy pages of talented photographers, soap makers, knitters, doll makers, jewelry makers, all manner of artist, selling their wares. I have purchased fabulous items from these people. this would be my idea of a second job. making my own hours....but it would be hard to create these wonderful products on my couch in front of the tv half comatose. and when would I ship? of course, there have been a few business plans over the years...just this summer Brit and I came up with Bigfoot Fries...Kate & I years ago discussed mother & daughter pillow company while we were creating some fabulous denim pillow cases...and I have started an epic novel or two that just fizzled out...I have a few years left in me....maybe this talent will eventually surface?

love this pic Tonya posted on facebook of junior high Koren & friends!

my stomach was in knots all day about Katie's algebra 2 worksheet that she'd had to redo her work on multiple times. she is frustrated.I am frustrated...

and then the skull and ribs on this damn A&P project. and the money woes. she got the worksheet done to Mrs. P's satisfaction. got the ribs figured out today. whew! not much I can do about our plummeting bank account till payday. I keep telling myself there are 5 paydays this month. that has to help somewhat. Tuesdays after my 3 day weekend are so stressful. but today we worked together and it was ok. Katie & I watched (finally) the rest of the premiere episode of Scream Queens. then some Deadly Women. I knocked 2 Sister Wives off the list. KJ got a card in the mail that he was overdrawn. so texted him. Kate called and had a long heart to heart with Koren. I am glad they are so close. Kate got put in charge of music for Barnwarming. and they've piled other responsibilites on her, as well. she's got a strong back and a good head on her shoulders. yeah, sometimes I am afraid of her wrath, but mostly I'm proud and happy to be her mother.
was going to change the bed. didn't happen. didn't get any laundry started. (did ALL the laundry today at work). there is always tomorrow. fiddle dee dee. I'll think about it tomorrow. Tomorrow is another day.
Kody & Christine took their Las Vegas family counselor Nancy along on their 21st anniversary trip to Galvaston Texas to see their former family counselor Pam (I think it' s Pam....) they stayed at The Victorian Bed & Breakfast Inn
so now, I wanna go to Galvaston and hang out on the amazing beach and stay in this beautiful bed & breakfast, but will pass on the family counselor....
...and tonite I hid in the kitchen when the Schwan's man came to the door, couldn't buy anything and have so much trouble saying no...he knocked a few times and then left. is this how normal adults act? they'll probably go into great detail on this on my future Deadly Women episode. sure Candance will have some catty remarks about my behavioral patterns. she's the expert, after all...

this whole debt consolidation/budget thing not going well....

sigh.....
out of Pink Drink, no $ to restock till payday...will have to just be a brave lil' soldier...and I haven't lost a million pounds or anything, but I feel thinner....

I finished my Bonnie & Clyde book, did laundry, and sewed some. last night he surprised me with that cast iron tub from his grandma's yard that is now on my courtyard and will be filled with flowers next spring! want to start the other side of courtyard so the table will be in middle surrounded by flowers and stuff.
I put on makeup , capri jeans, and a nice shirt today. he noticed. that was sweet. now to watch the Chiefs game on the telly.
