Bored at Home

I had a parent teacher interview this afternoon for Logan - He is doing great. Better then great, considering where we were at the start of the year :D

Logan wore his crown and carried his scepter to the interview - I had made the crown by sewing triangle bits of felt to the bit I had cut off my jeans when I hemmed them. It took me less than an hour to make the crown, and that includes having to search through a gazillion totes to find the felt!

His teacher commented on the crown remarking that it was great - I explained it was just something I had done out of boredom. Seriously people. try sitting home, alone every day, with just dogs for company, and see if you don't go batshit crazy. I should get a job, even a sales jobs to keep myself busy, but the fact is, I'm damn lazy. I like being able to sleep til noon!

Why the wait?

So we cashed the tax refund check. And were told we have to wait 3-5 days for the funds to appear in our account. UHM, it's a freaking GOVERNMENT check, of course its good! Why the wait? Imagine if they did the bullshit 3-5 day wait when you cashed a paycheck? You'd have no choice but to get cash advances every shopping day!

It annoys me SO much that they do this. Blakes birthday is on the 23rd, but his party is on the 16th, and we slightly need to buy his gifts. We left it this long becuase we knew the tax refund was coming, but now if we have to wait five stupid days we will be shopping the day before the party!


Oh and the cake? He requested a Coral Snake. LOL

Mother's Day

Mother's Day is coming up pretty quick here - It's already over in the UK, theirs was on April 3. Last year was the very worst of all Mothers days ever, period. I was at my dad's, helping him plan the funeral for my sister. The Worst.

Actually, yo be honest, Until that Sunday when the kids pulled cards out of the suitcase, I had pretty much forgotten about it, but it was still bad.

This year has be better. I mean, It can't be worse, that's' for damn sure!

I've already hinted QUITE unsubtly that I want one of those mothers necklaces. You know the kind? It has the birth stones of all your kids on it, in whatever arrangement you choose. A family necklace, with Micah's and my own birthstone as well as the kids would be cool too, But I would rather that be a ring.

The boy's birth months are October, April and June, so ...Opal, Diamond and pearl. Wowzers! What a monochromatic necklace that will make! Micah and I are both reds, ruby for me, garnet for him, so if we are added, at least we would have a bit of color LOL

Anyway. We got a sweet tax return, so I am looking forward to this Mother's Day :D
