I'll be back soon

Things are simply crazy here. I don't know why I just haven't had a sec to even upload new photos of annabeth or stitching to my computer. I have a question for all you moms out there. I read blogs where people are posting during nap time, how the hell are you doing that? when do you do laundry/ take a nap/ do dishes/ prep dinner? I mean I am lucky A will go down for 2 hours but I need every sec.

I am stitching but can't post what i have been working on till the recipient recieves it. I am wrapping up the school year and should have more time after this coming week. On top of that my mom and my stepdad are coming down from PA tomorrow for 1) early christmas, and 2) remove wallpaper and paint my kitchen (they wanted a project!).

In baby news A. is climbing, and readily pulling herself up to standing. She is cruising cautiously, we are hoping for a christmas miracle for walking. She is signing a few signs now, "milk" "all done" and "duck" go figure. It all came in a rush after she figured out how to wave bye. Guess the books were right.

Meanwhile Abi tagged me....and I have to tell you this was tough for me...I am just not that interesting. Oh and I am invoking the blogger chain mail killer rule and not doing Rule# 4 and 5 (i don't know enough bloggers well enough)

Here are the tag rules:
Rule #1 ~ Link to the person that tagged you.
Rule #2 ~ Post the rules on your Blog.
Rule #3 ~ Write 6 random things about yourself.
Rule #4 ~ Tag 6 people at the end of your post.
Rule #5 ~ Let each person know that they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their Blog.
Rule #6 ~ Let the tagger know your entry is up.

#1. I was in a sorority in college. I know I don't seem like the type, right? but let me tell you it is a great opportunity for folks who need the social nudge to help meet people and make friends (no, they are not ready made friends, I didn't like them all!) I'll tell you this, I always had a party to go to and knew people there. (see #6 for a bit of background)

#2 For about 10 years I used to keep track in a ledger all the books I read and how many pages a day I read. the most books in a year: 38 (1994) and the most pages in a day: 590 (same year)

#3 I have a half brother who is 10 and lives in Canada. A result of my dad's 2nd marriage (now divorced), I haven't seen him since he was 3 but i hope some day to meet him again.

#4 My favorite flavor is mint, chocolate mint, peppermint, spearmint, doesn't matter. I love christmas just for the mint factor

#5 I am a certified, card carrying, bartender. I haven't tended a bar in 5 years..but i can still tell you what is in a Pink Squirrel.

#6 Growing up I survived the bully attracting trimverate : Glasses, braces, and curly hair. But i still get hives driving past a junior high or middle school.

I feel like i just left a psychiatrist's office: thanks for listening!

Can't wait to see those A. pix when you can catch your breath. Did you finish her dress?

This time of the year is so crazy, I don't blame you for not having time! We'll be here when you've got a chance to breath again :)

I am SUCH a mint freak - I also love this time of year just for the abundance of minty goodness :)

It really is sooo hard to find time to do anything! I can definitely relate. I find that if I wake up before the rest of the family, I am more relaxed during the day because I've had my "me time" which usually involves a nice cup of coffee and some blog browsing.

My little A is talking... she's not speaking English, but she's saying something! LOL
