Hi again… it’s me?  remember me?

I’ve had a nice bloggy break, with a huge chance to recharge and re-evaluate some things, and I think it’s time I come back to My New Thing.  I’m excited – I’ve had a lot of new things going on, which I’ll share over the next little while, but I wanted to start off with something from clevergirl…

I am entering into the following agreement with the first 5 people who comment on this post and then commit to doing the same on their blog. Just read below and if you feel up to the task copy the following into your blog and leave me a comment.

  1. I make no guarantees that you will like what I send you. But you may be pleasantly surprised. It will definitely be sewing/craft related.
  2. What I send will be made just for you, with love, by my own hands. You’d be surprised how much of our personalities does come through online.
  3. I will complete all 5 gifts this year – 2009.
  4. I will not give you any clue what it’s going to be. It will be something made in the real world, that you can touch and feel, and not something cyber.
  5. I reserve the right to do something strange. It may be weird or beautiful. Or it may be monstrous and annoying. If you find it truly horrendous, just let me know. Perhaps you’ll send it forward to someone who will absolutely love it.
  6. In return, all you need to do is post this text on your blog and make 5 things for the first 5 to respond to your blog post.
  7. Send your mailing address – after I contact you to confirm.

I saw this “pay it forward” meme on Facebook a while ago, and I wasn’t in a place to do anything about it.  But now I am… If you’d like something handmade by me, be one of the first 5 to post a comment and to post this offer on your blog, too!

Please join me and Antoinette in spreading some bloggy love and beautiful things around the world…

Love you guys!

2 memes…

OK, so I was tagged by two friends recently, and I haven’t done either of them yet…  I have some time before SYTYCD, so here goes!

From The AuthorMy 5 Biggest Pet Peeves

  1. Bad grammar (written and spoken) and mis-used words.  I’m sorry for any typos I’ve made here if this is one of your pet peeves, too.
  2. Teeth sucking.  You know what I mean?  When someone sits there next to you and loudly “sucks” food or whatever off their teeth?  {shudder}
  3. When my Hubby flips around too much in bed while I’m trying to sleep.  I need complete silence and no moving in order to sleep.  You think after 5 years, he’d understand this, right?
  4. People who are late.  I’m sorry if you are perpetually late… I am one of those annoying people who are always early.  I can’t help it.  It just happens.  I just don’t understand those who are late.
  5. Crumbs in the bottom of my purse.  I know there are a lot of annoying things that come with motherhood, but this is one I just cannot stomach.  Erk!

From Amanda…  7 Random Things About Your Kids

  1. Big Boy says the best prayer at each meal: “Bless us, O Lord, for now we eat.”  I have no idea where he got it, but I love it.
  2. Baby D goes through 4 bibs a day with his drool.  You can’t see any of his cute clothing because of his drool problem.
  3. Big Boy has this thing with hats.  He loves them except when he should really be wearing them.  He’ll wear one around the house for days, but as soon as we head out to the park – no way, man!
  4. Big Boy has some terrible allergies.  The nurse that read his allergy test said that he scored higher than anyone she had seen in 9 years for his peach allergy. Peaches!  And who in the world is allergic to peas and beef?  Big Boy.
  5. Big Boy also thinks he can dance.  I’m not squashing his dreams, though.  He’s seen a couple minutes of some SYTYCD on occasion, and apparently, he thinks he can break dance.  He does what he calls the “robot,” and then he “spins” on his head.  It’s a riot.  He also mixes this with his Yo Gabba Gabba terminology, so he always wants to show people his “cool tricks” dancing.  Go, little dude!
  6. Baby D has the biggest, cutest, most crookedest (bad grammar!!!) smile I’ve ever seen.  It takes over the whole bottom half of his face. Adorable!
  7. Big Boy eats rice like a mad man.  Loves it.  If he could exist only on rice, he would.

I’m not tagging anyone… so if you’d like to do either of these, go ahead!  And let me know so I can come and visit you to read them!

PS… Amanda, I think you’re right about Thayne.  I think it’s him and Comfort leaving tonight.  I’m so sorry….
