under attack...ack!!

A few days ago I was in my laundry room putting the clothes from the washer into the dryer. I noticed there was a wasp flying around the room. I sprinted to the kitchen and grabbed the first thing I saw to kill it...a bottle of mean Green(used to clean counter tops and floors). I went back to the laundry room and saw there were 3! wasps flying around. So I took aim and sprayed them with the mean green. When I saw the wasps were weakened I saw my next plan of attack across the room..the broom. Well...I started for the broom..and slipped in the mean green fell onto my knees and did a split. I was in awful pain..couldn't move..thought I broke something in my knee. But I was still under attack ..the wasps were now back on the move..and pissed. So I crawled..sorta of..to the phone and called my sister to come help me. I wasn't able to stand up..my inner thigh muscles hurt sooooo bad. She came and helped me..first my killing the wasps and then by getting me to my feet. Needless to say I am terrified of bees.I have no idea why I have this fear. I'm not allergic to them. But I freeze up and get all squeamish when I see one. Anyways, my knees are fine..other than bruising. I hurt for a few days, had a heck of a time walking. lol But now I get a good laugh when I tell this story.


I haven't gotten much more stitching done on my touching the sky piece. I spent one day frogging it..I was one over too far. I hate when that happens. I am so glad I stitched this on linen. The stitches look so neat and fresh. You can't really tell but it is stitched on a lite blue fabric.


Today I have to get my house cleaned top to bottom. I am having a party lite/candle party today. Party lite has such nice things but way to expensive for me. I'm having this party to see if I can sell enough things to get the candle tree I want. Gotta sell 150$ worth of stuff.


Brandon is in a new phase. Now when he gets into trouble..he wants a hug. You can be in the middle of telling him not to do something and he will hold out his little hands and say "hug mommy..hug". He hugs me probably about 50 times a day..cause he's not only wanting a hug when he's in trouble..it's all the time. If I ask him to pick up his toys, tell him dinner is ready, if I get up to go to the bathroom, all the time!! But at least he's not banging his head on the floor.

We have started potty training..but it's not working. The first few times were fun..and he sat on the little potty chair. But now it's a fight...he says "it's broke mommy, it's broke." talking bout his pee pee. I've tried offering him a sucker if he pees in the potty. But that isn't working. Keith seems to think it's too early for potty training. At what age did you potty train your little boy? Brandon just turned 2 1/2 a few days ago. I'm going to do some Internet searching today see what the experts say.

I have been sticking to my diet fairly well. I've had a few set backs with the hurt knee and the weather. One day it was 70 degrees out side with sunshine., the next it was snowing!! I couldn't believe it. Crazy weather.

But I'm off to do a little stitching before Brandon gets up. Hugs and have a great day.

Hope you get well from those bruises and that's good the wasps did not attack you or that would have been worse. Well have a nice Easter Lizette

ouch, that looks painful. I did something stupid the other evening, I was putting a pot in the fridge that has a glass lid and it slipped out of my hand( the glass lid) and it fell to the floor, I didnt want it to break in a million pieces, so I did what my reflexes said to do, my foot caught it and dang did that hurt. I have a bruised upper ankle area.

ouch kiddo! that sounds and looks painful! hope you are doing better.

Both my boys were almost 3 when they were potty trained. When they were ready it didn't take long and no accidents. Maybe he needs a few more months.

Ouch! Sounds like something I'd do - I have a similar reaction to bees/wasps.

We didn't start really having success until my son was 4. It may have happened sooner, but I was trying very hard not to use sweets for incentive. I finally gave in, and Smarties and Twizzlers worked wonders, wishing I'd given in sooner ;)
