a bit random..

*I decided today that I really would like to learn how to sew. I have all of these ideas in my brain that will be forever there if I don't learn. So- who wants to teach me? I now wish I would've taken home ec in middle school, instead of goofing off in choir. haha.
*I am really cold right now. It may have something to do with my hair being wet, or the thermostat set on 69, but either way, I'm freezing bo-beezing, as I always say.
*I cried while talking to the nurse from the doctors office today. I couldn't decide whether I was offended or grateful when she said I was cute and a sweet mama, and that she wanted to meet me when I came in. Ha.
*I was talking to the nurse again because Cate continues to spit up, and has added diarrhea to the mix. My poor little girl! We're going tomorrow for another weight check and really for my peace of mind.
*My kids are both sleeping right now. I put in Corban in bed because he was being (incredibly) disobedient, and he fell right to sleep. Guess I just missed the sleepy cues this morning.
*A funny Corban story: I was drooling over the new Pottery Barn Kids magazine, and as I was holding it up, Corban was saying "ha-ye, ha-ye, ha-ye" over and over. That translates, btw, to "Holly", which could mean either Holly or Brandon, my brother and sister-in-law. I couldn't figure out what in the world he was talking about! But he kept insisting, and then I realized he was looking at the cover of the magazine... which had Major League Baseball stuff all over it. Ahhh... it clicked! He was 'saying' Brandon, because of the baseball stuff! Brandon is probably the biggest Cleveland Indians fan you'll ever meet... and I think this is proven by my 18 month old making that connection. lol
*I have picked up Mr. Potato Head and all of his body parts approximately 972 times today. Also occurring 972 times: Me saying the word 'no'.
*I'm openly admitting that I'm looking forward to an episode of Oprah. She's doing an episode on being frugal and slashing your grocery bill- surely she can't twist that into weird new-agey garbage, right?! I saw the preview while watching Wheel of Fortune last night, and decided that I would watch it today. It'd be wonderful (and maybe surprising?) if there were some useful tips on there today.
*We are getting real, professional pictures taken on Thursday. We've never done this before, and I'm really excited about it. Now, I just have to figure out what we're all going to wear. Oh, and we're getting them taken at our house!
*I'm just about finished wasting time. The toy box is emptied all over my living room, and I haven't cleaned up from breakfast. And, like always, there's laundry to be done. So, I should probably get off my rear and get to work!


  1. Hey Kristin, I'd be more than happy to teach you how to sew when I get back. I am getting my own sewing machine for my birthday at the of the month. It would be fun!

  2. Ah Faith beat me to it! We'll all have to get together and sew!

  3. I will be praying for little Cate! Kairi did the diarrhea thing and ended up on gentlease formula. I know you don't want that so I will be praying! Good luck with the sewing, I'd love to learn too, but gave up on the idea once Kairi started becoming even the slightest bit mobile! It sounds like so much fun and it would save money too! Let us all know what Oprah had to say!

  4. real professional pictures? at your house...I'm excited to see those..

    and maybe your mr. potato head pieces can come play with my barbie pieces...they seem to be in the same places...

  5. learn to sew. it is so much fun. i'm noy very good but i love it. it would fun especially now that you have a little girl.
