forgive me while I rant

I needed a place to get a few things that are bothering me off my chest.  This may seem random.

I set up a book club for my daughter through our homeschooling group.  The book is rated for kids 12 and up.  One of the moms signed up her 14y/o AND her 6y/o!!!!  At first I wanted to just wait and hope that mom would catch a clue that the book is not appropriate for a 6y/o...but this particular mom doesn't catch much...except for more kids.  (sorry, that was rather catty of me)

another topic...
good news: the folks in charge didn't bend the rules for her.  the bad news: she TRIED to get them to bend the rules for her!  Well I guess part of it is that she always gives her princess whatever princess wants.  So when princess changed her mind and even after saying no she didn't want it, she now wants it...really bad.  So momma tried to get the rules bent so princess could have it. 
Just hope momma doesn't throw a fit about it.

mad at myself for not working on sewing my dress sooner.  I've been nervous about messing it up, so I've been putting it off.  now I only have 4 days to get it finished.  and one of those days isn't a full day as I have to be gone for a huge chunk of it.  sigh  The good news is that I've cut the material all out and sewed part of the lining...and that went quickly.  however, for the outer layer I need to make french seams...for the first time ever.  YIKES!

also mad at myself that I only lost 7 of the 15 pounds that I wanted to lose by next Wednesday.  Course if I lose 1/2 a pound I'll make half way.  LOL!  if I could just pick where that half a pound comes off that would be great.  The good news is that I can see a tiny bit of results...and I can hide what I'm still not happy about.

oh here's something to be grumbling about... how can one be expected to order things online if the sizes don't match what's in the store???  I ordered a product the exact same size as what I bought in the store, but the online version is too big!  what gives?  Luckily this place has awesome customer service and an exchange should be fine.  fingers crossed that this one fits.

to be continued....


  1. Woo hoo, after 2 weeks, my computer's back online! I chuckled when I read the new name of your old blog. Appropriate, but at least you're still hanging in there with it!

  2. Reaaaaarrrr! Catty :)

    You lost me at "french seams."
