Only 21 days left

Until the final installment of the Harry Potter series. I can hardly wait. What will happen to them all. I suspect she will kill him off so that no one else will pick up the pen and try to tell more tales of Harry. I can't wait to see how it ends. I don't know if I'll be able to put it down after getting it which is a bummer since I will have to get to bed early for the work the next day. I hope the time flies by. Just 21 more days and we'll know the answers to the final contest between Lord Voldermort and Harry. Is Severus good or truly bad? Will Hermione and Ron get together. Oh...I just can't wait. Just 21 more days.

My new toy

I've recently purchased a few things to enhance my sewing and to give it that professional edge. My recent endeavor as a fabric selling mama has afforded me some hobby money to do it.
Here's the coverstitch machine. It's a Brother 2340CV and I love it.

Six changes

So...again, I'm working on me. Trying to lose some weight. I haven't watched Oprah in forever, but today, Bob Greene is on there. He said something that really struck me was that the motivation might not be there. You have to do it even if you're not motivated, but the motivation will come with success. Jesus! That makes so much sense. The motivation comes from success and seeing the changes! It's unbelievable.

Anyways...I had already decided to give up soda. But I have some additional things that I will work on giving up over the next 6 weeks.
2. Trans Fats
3. Fried foods
4. White Bread
5. Reg. Pasta
6. Highfat Dairy


I look at some of these great blogs and they have the most lush well staged photos. So this summer my goal is to take better pictures and to post those pictures. I'd also like to shoot some film.
I really want to be better about taking pix of the kids. I look at O. and she's changed so much from that scrawny 5lb baby. I want to capture more of her on film rather than just in my memory.
Plans for this week. Take pix of my craft exchange projects and start working on a messenger bag and a diaper bag for S. I can't wait to get the snap press! It'll make some projects so much easier.

So, what is it about women

I think I'm going to divorce myself from the female species. I swear! First it's work and snippy backstabbing hags! And now even in cyber space I'm encountering it, not me exactly, but you know. On two boards I'm on there's nothing but cattiness and snipping. It's exhausting. I guess that is the exact reason women will always be considered less capable than our male counterparts. We are ruled by emotions and not to our benefit. Ahh well...
