Well, it seems the Ravelry progress bars aren’t available yet for word press. That kinda sucks……oh well-now you don’t get to easily notice how many WIPs I have on the go! ha ha ha ha ha ha

Well, I’m making the switch over to Word Press. It’s a little different than what I am used to but it doesn’t usually take me too long to get the hang of new sites, so wish me luck!


Baking June 29, 2009

Well, with my man gone for 4 weeks I get bored at times and when I am bored I usually either play games on facebook or bake. This weekend I did both. A lot.
I made some mini blueberry pies for my daddy(no pics), some smarties cookies, cinnamon buns and some chocolate squares. Sorry for the crappy pics-I just used my cellphone for em.
I’m bringing most of these to a baby play date/knit date this afternoon-I had 2 cinnamon buns and a square with coffee for breakfast and if I don’t want to gain a million pounds I need to get them out of here! ha ha ha ha ha Good thing I at least subbed Splenda for sugar or these would be deadly to my waistline!

In the past month I have:

Gone to a baby shower for a wonderful friend

Discovered a really gross looking bottle of cola at the store

Gone on a road trip

Finished a sweater that actually fits really good for once

and gotten a wicked swap package in the mail!


April and May

Filed under: Uncategorized — hellcat @ 8:55 pm

So I skipped over my April recap post only to stop blogging altogether! I am so bad!
Here’s the main points:
April started off with a week or so of crazy anxiety attacks and depression. Got some anti-anxiety meds and ended up having a real bad reaction to the initial side effects and went home to stay with my parents for a week while my hubby was away.
I got used to my meds and am feeling fine as can be. Got a job and am working fairly steadily these days-although not enough to pay my bills completely.
Got accepted into college and paid my confirmation fee but got turned down for my student loan. Not sure how I’ll pay for it, but I have a few months to sort that out.
My hubby is gone right now for 4 week doing work for his father’s company so I am here on my lonesome with Mr. Zartan, but so far we have been getting along quite splendidly 🙂
That’s the quick and dirty rehash of the last few months. I’ll be more diligent with my blogging from here on out, folks!
