48 Weeks

Sean is 48 weeks old today.

I am NO LONGER a landlord anymore!!! Woooohooooo! As of about 1 pm today, I officially was relieved of those duties! I am very happy about this. Glad to not be there anymore. I am assuming everything went smoothly as I didn't get any phone calls, as I pre-signed last night.

This morning my new cleaning lady showed up early! I like that! She is really nice and did a great job. When she left today, my house felt more clean than anyone else that has cleaned it. She really did a good job. So far, she'll be coming every Thursday, as she only has from 8 am -1:30 pm to work in my house. That is not enough time for her to do my entire house (as I saw today), so there are some things she'll do one week and other things she'll do the next week. But I was very impressed and I like her.

Today Angela came over and we hung out. She helped me with Sean so I could take care of a few things in the house. (Laundry mainly). There has been a lot of laundry to do as of lately, and a lot was done, just never got folded and put away due to my little monster who always wants my attention. (Nothing wrong with that - but it's hard to do things!)

This afternoon after Sean's nap we headed out to do a few errands. I had to do a return to Walmart (and stock up on more baby formula - it was on sale still), and do a return to Reno-Depot (the hardware store). We came back for dinner, I had made a wonderful beef stew in my slow cooker and it was ready and the house was smelling delicious. Then we headed into town, I wanted to go to a specific bead store, to see what they had, and stock up on more eye pins for my stitch markers. (I was running out of the ones I perfer). Anyhow, I ended up today getting the beads for the stitch markers for the December sock club kits, as well as for January, February & March, since I know what the colors are already for each of the kits for the new year. I can't wait to make the stitch markers, the beads are awesome! I absolutely love making stitch markers. I find it relaxing to be creative!

I'm beat. I'm not really feeling well, and I'm off to bed. I still need to make a date with my new roman bath tub and my novel that I started eons ago. It's about time I finished it. Also - I think I've lost my knitting mojo the past couple of weeks (since the move). The last time I knit was over a week ago at the SNB on Monkland, and I haven't had the desire to knit anything. Maybe it's because of first trimester tiredness, who knows.... But I do have a deadline of Xmas to finish my nephew's drive-thru sweater. Sean's took me a week for size 2. But that was one week of a LOT of knitting. This is size 6, and hopefully it won't take me too much longer to finish it. I better get cracking. One of these days.

Don't forget you have 1 days left to order yourself a December Sock Club Kit from Robyn's Nest. Also don't forget, I've put Mirasol Hacho is on sale until November 30th, for 1$ off per skein.

Yay! Happy 48 weeks to Sean and congratulations on not being a landlord anymore! That must be such a huge relief, I can't imagine!

hurray for not being a landlord anymore! I'm sure it feels as though a huge weight has been lifted off your shoulders. that is awesome that your cleaning lady did a stellar job. :) hope the knitting mojo comes back though it's understandable--who'd feel like knitting after packing up a house and unpacking into a new one! I'm sure you'll be able to finish your nephew's drive-thru in time. :) hope you can get some rest!

Hey there,

I am thinking about getting a new digital camera for xmas, any suggestions? YOur pictures look great what do you use, do you have a digital SLR? Sorry to hear you've been so tired, the house looks great and I can't believe sean's hair! I am under the influence right (post surgery drugs)now so therefore trying to write a coherent message, am I fooling anyone?
