home at last!!

i can not believe i have been gone for over two weeks!! how great it is to be home. yes, my grandfather passed away on the 7th. quite unexpected. my grandmother is in a nursing home and my biological mother was estranged. but all is well now. i guess, as well as can be. i love dysfunction, don't you? lol

also, a little something that has been going on in my life, my ex had filed for custody. a logical reason my posts for the last month or so have been so blah. a little emotionless. well, we had court monday the 21st. WE WON!! my daughter is soooo relieved. the first thing she asked when i picked her up afterward was who had won. i didn't even think she knew we were headed to court. so perceptive. i wanted to cry when she smiled, sighed and said 'good'.

so i have two weeks with one child. what will i do? i know exactly what i will do. i am going to dump their toy boxes out and clear out all the junk. same with their dressers, and book shelves, and . . . you get the idea.

while i was gone my father got me a camera. well, he got it on his best buy card and i will have to make the payments. it's a bit too much camera for me. we will probably go tomorrow and see what i can do about that. their is a feature i do not like. not sure how to explain it. when taking a pic, the lcd does not show the view. you have to look through the view finder. we'll see what can be done about that. alright, well, i am exhausted. headed to find my pillow, ;) chit chat with you later.

time to get busy

i've been busy taking pics of the bandana dresses i've been making. decided to make matching hairbows. hair bows? hmm, . . . click on my flickr badge on the right. i think it will take you to my photo stream. (still figuring this whole virtual world out)

posted a new item on my etsy shop. not too exciting over there. working on it.
working on these keychain things. let me know what you think! i'm thinking about doing them in team colors or school colors. i just had an epiphany. lightning just struck my brain. SCHOOL FUNDRAISER ITEM!! my daughter's fourth grade class is trying to raise money to help with a big field trip this next spring. ok, i gotta go email the teacher. hee hee
