Focus, focus, focus!!

I can not tell you how hard it has been to focus lately. All I want to do is craft, crochet, bake, crochet, bake and craft some more. It’s ridiculous. Then, as if focusing on my History class wasn’t hard enough, I had a quiz almost completely finished, saved it and went back to it the next day…GONE!!!! The whole thing, just gone. 😥 I literally looked at the screen, emailed my instructor and said “screw it”. I used a more colorful word at the time, but it meant the same thing…

I do believe that this will always be the hardest time of the year for me to go to school. I just want to MAKE THINGS!!!!!!! I’ve picked up crocheting, ya know, because I’m totally not busy and have time on my hands. :-/ I’ve been making hats and scarves and wrist warmers because of course it’s freezing in the desert. I’m so daft. But whatever, it seems to keep me sane. I just sit still for hours counting stitches…one, two, three, one two three, one two three, chain 1, one, two, three, one, two, wait, crap, then unravel half of my work, one, two, three, one, two,…well, you get the idea. It’s amazing what you DON’T think about when you’re doing something like that. Kind of therapeutic…

Then, I told you guys about the Pinterest site…that is going to be the end of me, seriously. I.CAN’T.LEAVE.IT.ALONE. Holy crap, if I had the time, my house would be friggin buried in craft turkeys made from felt, baked goods of every kind (including the cutest litte santa hats made out of brownies and strawberries…really…), new centerpieces for every single day, alcoholic beverages of every single kind, you name it, I’d be doing it. That site is evil…pure evil…and I absolutely love it.

But what I would really love to do is to rip out every single page of that history book and make a wreath with the pages. Hmmmmm…..


Dracula and Anna Valerious (Van Helsing)

Our costumes!

 Oh yeah, it was a fun and crazy Halloween weekend! The kids got major sugar highs and epic crashes (thankfully…) and everyone stayed safe and had a good time!

The Halloween party that we went to on Saturday night was a blast! Our friends really know how to throw a party and the decorations were FANTASTIC. I can’t even imagine how long it took them to do all of that. It took us a total of about 3 hours to get ready (I was ready first, just so you all know…)  🙂  I think hubby’s contacts are what took the longest. That boy has a serious blink reflex…



We looked awesome, if I do say so myself.  Hubs is blond and I have lighter short hair. People didn’t even recognize us! My ribcage was sore on Sunday and I didn’t breathe most of the night, but all well worth it! I swear I wish I could wear outfits like that all of the time. Too much fun!

 So now…Halloween has passed and there are only two holidays left this year. Where does the time go?! Funny thing though, I saw this picture on a friends Facebook page and it is PERFECT for one of my posts about how all the holidays are blending together. I got a huge laugh out of this one…
