What's For Dinner?

I'm pretty sure I fed my family part of my fingernail last night.

For obvious reasons I didn't mention this to them at the time.

It could have been worse of course... See I was using my favorite knife to cut some onions for dinner (I'm a big onion person). The reason I like this particular knife is because it's sharp and has thus far stayed that way. So there I am alone for a few minutes no kids hanging on apron strings or tossing cooking utensils out windows, and you know what I discovered?

I can't cut veggies without distraction.

Chop, chop, chop, gasp.

I quickly inspected my thumb for blood and thankfully found none (I've done this before... With a turkey and a pointer finger, that was probably 13 years ago and I still can't feel the tip of it) It wasn't until the onions were in the pot cooking away that I noticed the knick in my nail.

What do you do when you realize there are small, likely unnoticed, body parts in your soup? I don't work in a restaurant so I don't really need to worry about OSHA or the FDA. So I shrugged and moved on to the spices.

No one noticed. I guess that means I'm in the clear, just as long as you guys don't mention anything to Ralexwin or the kids. *wink*

Ha ha... I'm telling.

Just Kidding.

Yeah, I'm totally not saying anything. Your husband probably thinks I'm weird enough without me telling him he probably ingested part of your fingernail at dinner the other night. As for the kids, since their kids I think it is safe to assume that they have eaten grosser stuff at some point anyways.

Mom always used to say that what Dad didn't know, he couldn't taste. :D

Altered Shoe Art: Ring Holder Shoe Tutorial

This was my week two craft for So You Think You're Crafty. I placed third that week for this one. I thought you might enjoy finding out how I made it.

I tried about a million different decorations before settling on one that didn't drown out my rings. I wanted them to the focal point. This is also why I went with black fabric and not something more vivid.

Don't be intimidated by the lack of 101 I'm giving you. It really is a straight forward sort of project. If you know how to use a glue gun without burning yourself you can do this. Just be sure to dust off your imaginative brain space first. :)

The one important thing you might be wondering is how I got the pink fabric to stick to the shoe. I really just Mod Podged it on.

There are several different ways to make ring tubes that you can find online. One I saw used that colored foam paper stuff that you find in the kids craft section. I thought that might have been easier, but I had scraps of batting lying around so I …

Checking In

I think learning another language is going to be the death of me. I had all these high hopes for getting A's from now on in college and now all I can think is.... B's are good too.

But I can say 'no me gusta pongo salsa en mi comida' which possibly translates into I do not like sauce in my food.

Oh dear....

Getting Back on My Feet

It is finals week for me, and I am extremely excited to be done with it. I overdid myself this semester and took 14 credits. That's five classes.
This may not sound like much (just two over the average) but for a single-mom with four children and a job this was insanity. Especially since two of those classes were English classes and I was forced to write WAY more than I had time for (I had three essays due this week totaling nearly 20 pages of writing and another 3-4 of pure citations).
Also, I moved.
Yep. I moved in with a friend and her partner.
They are the best and gave my children and I a place to stay until I have my feet back under me. The rent is half what I was paying. It's a tight fit for all of us but it's so much better than where the kids and I were at that I couldn't be more grateful.
Next semester I am going to be dropping down to part-time and focusing on working more hours so I can actually afford to live.
I'm also considering going into a technic…
