So let's get another entry in this weeks contest for those stitch markers. All you need to do is comment, that's it just say Hi, let me know you were here. But for those of you who would like to try this new stitch featured, or perhaps have already mastered this stitch have suggestions for how to use this stitch feel free to share that with us all as well.
I received two packages in the mail yesterday. I will most likely blog about them on the weekend.
Water therapy went well yesterday it was the drive home that got ugly. Adam went home last night and I probably won't have him again until Friday next week as his mom is getting married this Friday.
I am making progress on the squares, I have about 25 more to go to reach the 75 total.
Ok for those not interested in the talc, tub, telephone and tampon tale you can stop here or scroll down to the Adam video
How I almost broke my leg because of some powder, a tub and a tampon while on the telephone
(by Aunt Kathy August 2008)
It was just like any other day in my life. I am dealing with a very irritating TOM never ending session. I have taken oh let's say 2 or 3 showers already, yeah TOM is not my friend. The last shower I decided to put on some refreshing feminine powder (you know why) but the darn thing seemed to be clogged and I swear nothing was coming out. I kept shaking it. Uh AK, did you think to look at the floor? My bath mat is now white instead of the burgundy and green it naturally is. I am already frustrated so I decide to clean that all up later (which means never).
Fast forward a couple hours, I am on the phone as usual... I need to replace my supply, if you know what I mean... so I am in the bathroom, ready to insert the fresh clean (if only for a few minutes) tampon when I lift my bare foot onto the edge of the tub for a better angle.
Did I mention my floor was covered with powder? Well now so is my bare foot, and powder on the bottom of the foot on the edge of the tub, yeah can we say slippery? My leg starts to go into the tub... I am doing a split trying to hold onto something, I can hear the bones screaming in my leg about to break.
I finally ended up straddling the tub broken leg avoided, and poor Shelly I am sure was wondering what the heck was going on. I considered it an exercise session, burned a few calories, that deserved a chocolate don't ya think? Or two?
Oh by the way, I am still finding powder spots and where did that tampon go? Perhaps with my missing socks, my hidden cash stash, the darning needles. Who knows.
Now you know... I apologize for the details... and the lack of creativity in my writing style. I am not as good at writing down the stories as I am in just telling them... you really need to hear my emphasis etc. to get the humor in it all.
So to ease your pain, why not have a listen to Adam singing to me, oddly enough about exercise. LOL Oh and please excuse Papa's coughing... I swear he has to somehow get his two cents in on any video I make of Adam.
