I need more hours in the day. I have these 3 bottle holders (2 with Sesame Street Fabric (one for Quentin and one for his friend Nate) and 1 in black with 1 dots on it - an extra one for Quentin) that needs the last final hand sewn touches to them. Time to do it? Hard to find. Hoping to get these done tomorrow. I really wish there was more hours in the day. More hours to read. More hours to knit. More hours to sew. More hours to read blogs. More hours to reply to my emails (slowly working on cleaning out my inbox - which is a complete disaster right now). I did print a new pattern today and took out the yarn & appropriate needles, so I'm hoping that I can get started on that as soon as possible. It looks like a quick knit.

I ended up moving my eye doctor's appointment to next week. There was no point in going to it today with extremely tired eyes. Quentin's been having a 3-4 hour period every night that he wants to eat every hour. Not fun. It's been 2 nights in a row like this. So I'll be going for a check-up next week and I'll be praying that I get a good night's sleep the night before it. Thank you all whom have been commenting on their experience with Lasik. Thanks for all the info/feedback.

Since I was beyond a walking zombie today, Quentin and I decided to sleep in until past 2 pm. He got up once around 7:30 am, again just before 11:30 am and then at 2:15 pm when we got up for the day finally. While I didn't get much done at all today, I did manage to get on the treadmill for a good 30 minutes. It's amazing how much time flies on the machine when you're engrossed in something else. I brought my internet tablet with me (inspired by Oprah who plays Scrabble when she works out) and played Jewels. I am still looking for Scrabble or a scrabble like game for Android. Anything to pass the time faster on the treadmill. I hate working out. I find it a chore. However, I want to get my figure back, and exercise is important. My goal right now is to get on the treadmill for 1 month straight, every day. I am betting myself if I can do it. I hope I can keep it up. I figure, if I can get through one month straight, then anything's possible.


Oh, I love my boys. They're too cute.


This was just before bedtime tonight.

I listen to audiobooks on the treadmill :) I find I get bored with music after a while, but the books keep me distracted. Way to go, getting back to it!
