i've been sewing! seems like the first time I make something, the first time I follow I sewing pattern, it takes me SO long, I get confused, I make mistakes, and I get frustrated. But after that first time, I can whip stuff up in minutes and don't need the instructions anymore. Since last friday I've had Strep Throat (although the dr didn't confirm it until yesterday), so I had a lot of time lazing around in whcih I created these skirts:

They're really super easy to make (proof: I did it), and they're fast and fun.
Saturday was Oktoberfest. It was raining, and the girls spent the night at Nana's, and I was very much in the grip of my strep throat, so I didn't plan on going. But since the girls weren't home, Jesse and I wanted to do SOMETHING, so we headed down there for just an hour. We checked out the crafts, and all the crazy people. I saw tons of cute little crafts that I wanted, but most everything Jesse insisted "we can make that ourselves". So this is the only thing I walked away from Oktoberfest with:

and a bumper sticker. :o) Thank you Jesse!

My Strep Throat is 95% gone, and I hope I never have it again. I didn't have a fever, I didn't have ANY symptoms except an excruciating sore throat and some extra fatigue. i think the girls enjoyed it though because many times I started to reprimand them or intervene when they started making a mess, but my body was just too tired and it hurt too much to speak, so I just let them be. Saturday morning, I got out of bed at 4am and drove the the closest 24-hr walmart to find coughdrops, medicine, ANYthing to help w/ the pain. But the only thing that I tried that worked was some chamomile tea w/ honey. But man, that sore throat was horrible. And the 6 days I had it were SO LOOOOONG, i think because I spent every second of them dreading the next time I would have to swallow, because it hurt so very bad. But I'm back now, and I'm healthy!
