Welcome to my world...

the puke monster has come to visit.. grrrrrr..

Well.. another day.. another boring boring day.

We have these old dressers... looking kinda bad.. well.. not kinda.. they look REALLY bad.. and so the guy in the mall who does the furniture refinishing.. sent out an estimator to see what it would cost to refinish them.. make em pretty again.. well.. I had no inkling of just how expensive it is to refinish dressers.... they wanted.. 600$ per dresser.. geez.. nope.. not gonna happen.. no way.. no how.. I will take up furniture refinishing as a hobby myself before I pay that kinda money.. jeepers creepers.. on the upside.. I am reaffirmed that they are worth fixing up.. also.. she mentioned in passing that my piano stool is probably worth about 2000$ .. rough estimate.. on the low side.. she says.. still not parting with it.. that piano stool is probably the coolest peice of furniture in this entire house.. it's got little claw feet.. with like.. crystal balls on the bottom.. and apparently it's mahogany.. and wouldn't have originally come with the piano.. but a much nicer baby grand type..

I've been working on a new pattern for cloth diapers.. so far so good.. I have another idea I want to try out tonight.. double walls on the inside of the legs.. to keep poop in.. if I'm gonna do cloth diapers... dammit I'm gonna do it right. I DO NOT want to deal with poo explosions all over the place.I have a brilliant idea though.. gonna try it out.. see how it goes.. maybe mail a couple to my sis to have her try them out with a breastfed baby.. I want the pattern perfected by the time I have to use them myself. (well.. not me.. the baby that I'm planning)... not preggo yet... still working on it..

So.. the furniture lady was a bit of a let down.. I was seriously thinking less than 200 a dresser... THAT woulda been doable.

We were supposed to all go to Matt's aunt's for dinner tonight... unfortunately.. just as we were getting ready to go.. Drew Puked... ick.. and now he has a fever.. so.. I got to stay home and keep an eye on him.. and Matt and Joey went to his aunts. and I get to sit here.. watch drew.. and drool thinking about her pork chops.. he had better bring me back a nice big plate.


I am seriously thinking this day is an entire write off.. motivationally speaking.. I am so bored sitting here at the computer.. but still not motivated enough to get off of the damned thing... probably a direct result of staying up until 4 am drinking with matt and his friends. I got home from work last night.. and craving pizza.. let me tell you.. little caesars is going to be the death of me.. there's very little more convenient than walking in with 15$ and walking out with 2 eight slice pizza's and a crazy bread order 2 minutes later.. I love the walk in with money walk out with a hot pizza thing.. that's marketing genius! I wanted a pizza.. matty was too drunk to drive.. I guess him and Steve finished off a 40 ounce bottle of rye last night.. with very little help from me.. stupid drunks.. lol. you'd think they'd stop at feeling good and save themselves the hangover.. but no.. not my matty.. he's gonna get drunk.. and he's gonna take me along with him.. so once I got back with the pizza's... they put a nice big rye and ginger in front of me... (which is odd.. since a few months ago I couldn't drink anything without feeling totally sick and in pain) and I drank it... (we're talking big frosty mug here).. Me and Alun were sitting up here in the puta room eating our pizza and a complete stranger walks into my computer room and asks if I know where the phone is... (huh?) apparently this was one of steve's friends who no one bothered to introduce me to.. or mention that he was in my house..I was like.. it's right here.. who the hell are you??? btw.. I'm sheri.. I live here... then Steve challenges me to do shots with him.... now.. I don't usually do shots.. at all.. but I'm also full of pride.. and.. well.. a sucker for peer pressure... so by the time I did a shot with the guys.. my stomache has had it.. and that was it for me.. all done. but pleasantly happy none the less.. lol. around 4 am I realize that I'm all alone in the basement.. (I had tried to go to bed at 2... and went to play my ps2 in my bed.. only to realize it was in the basement.. tried to get matt to bring it up.. he said no so I went back down) I looked around the house.. they were all gone.. so I went to bed... I have no idea when matt got home... I THINK he walked Alun home.. which is funny.. since Alun seemed to be the only sober person here.. I think matty wanted to poach a smoke off alun.. stupid matty has been smoking again lately.... after quitting for months.. I'm pretty disappointed about that.. maybe if I move him to a city far far away.... ya right.. like that'll happen.

Dunno if I mentioned.. I got a raise.. 23 cents.. whoopdefreakindoo.. anyways.. I"m getting hungry.. gonna go find some triscuits or something to tide me over til my pork chops get here... mmmm pork... man I am ever glad I'm not jewish... droooool... mmmm.. pork.... ttyl

ok.. that's enough of that....

fun fun fun

anyhoo.. if anyone wants to know what'd going on in my life.. me and Matty are trying for baby # 3 (4) or however you figure that one.. 3 for him 4 for me.. 3rd child.. geez.. ok hell.. just we're gonna have another kid... the ultimate goal here is to do this spending as little cash as possible on actual baby stuff.. I have come to the conclusion over 3 babies that they really don't use all that stuff very long.. and to dish out thousands of dollars on exersaucers, playpens, etc.. just doesn't make sense.. it's only used for a few months.. so where I would spend is on a stroller and a playpen. because those two actually get used... stroller constantly.. and heck.. the baby sleeps WITH me.. so a playpen for naps. everything else would have to be hand me downs.. or borrowed.. So far I seem to have a stroller... and a car seat.. and TONS of girl clothes size 6 months... (mostly from my dolls.. but a few from a baby friend)I've been developing a business idea... I've been sewing for Tina's daughter Bekka for a pageant.. making little pinafore dresses and such.. and showed off the pics at playgroup yesterday... Krista said that I should go into business making these... people will apparently pay big bucks for them... craft shows and such... so my wheels got turning.. I could go into business... dresses, panties, diaper covers, diapers, booties, headbands, bonnets, pinafores, etc... all co ordinating or matching .. mix and match style.. 30$ dress, 15$ pinafore, 5$ headband or 8$ bonnet, matching diaper covers and diapers.. etc.. could also do matching dolly outfits.. to go with the bigger child sized ones out of the left over fabric.. added appeal.. added profit. Could do pajama's and make diapers out of the left over fabric there.. So me and Tina are sewing tomorrow night.. working on skills.. developing a diaper pattern etc.. and if I throw my soft sculpture dolls into the mix.. I could sell those on the craft circuit as well.. and that would be good too.. my step sis had the nerve to ask if I've sold any of my dolls.. um.. ya.. that's why they're not in my house anymore.. the only one I have left is the one I made for joey.. and asked me what the hell I'm doing having more kids.. um well... I think that's MY decision now ain't it? not like I'm asking anyone else to pay for them.. I WORK for a living.. my kids have nice clothes and food in their tummys and all the toys they could want.. like heck.. I realize I'm broke now... but.. that is MY decision... I work less hours so I can spend more time with my kids.. if I need more money.. I have the option to up my hours at work and get it.. I just choose not to.. as my kids are more important to me than having more money to buy more crap that I don't need.I just wanna say.. I LOVE when I find chocolate on my desk.. mmmm... hershery's kisses.. mmmmmm life is gooood....ok.. back to the blog...I got a raise yesterday at work. a whopping 23 cents.. that should cover half of my lunch on saturdays.. lol

anyways.. blogspot is not letting me add pictures for some reason today.. so if you want to see what I've made this week...
