My Roommate Thinks I'm Nuts!

Oh that he does folks. See I went to pay bills yesterday and since I have a problem with being able to find my wallet, dear hubby decided to be the sweetest thing and let me use his card. Ill be honest I didn't go overboard. But I've been working on a crochet project for my friend awaiting the arrival of baby Peyton and Walmart did not stock back up on the color scheme I needed. So sad face on that. Well I went to Michael's craft store and I won't even lie, I was a kid in a candy shop.

Not only did I find what I needed but I found more of one color matching y very first project! Ah, I was so excited! The stocker thought I was absolutely nuts and I think all the employees hear my excitement all the way from the registers. Well my roommate come in the store looking for me and the look on his face was priceless.

He looked at my haul and asked "Stacy, do you think you have enough yarn?"

Of course I wanted to be funny and say no, but I was not taking any chances of being short of yarn. It's not happening. So I bought all of this color. That's right, I cleaned the shelf it was on. And from the looks of it now I won't have just a big crochet blanket but I have enough to make a hat and booties! Yay! Oh by the way I had a great deal on this too. So I know someone is looking out for me. The total was originally $20.00 but the swipe of one paper and my total was $12.50. Yes I was excited and ill admit too excited for my own good. I literally danced my way back to the car singing "I'm so excited!"

That's how my afternoon went yesterday and now it's time for me to finish my blanket folks. Till next time!!

Oh No He Didn't?!?

Why yes he did. Scott has finally got walking down. I'm so proud of him. Now the only issue with him walking is that he tries to run. I worried he's going to bust his face on something. But he does seem to have it down.

Also I've notice he really loves stacking toys. Johnny got him a stacking bucket set from Tupperware when we were at the fair. He loved the baby chicks too :D. But yes, once we had Scott and those buckets on the floor it seemed like he was occupied for hours. Which on the plus side, gave me time to learn a new hobby. Crocheting! I'm actually pretty good at it though my first project looks all crocked.

I figured I'd share this bit of randomness with you guys. Now it's picture time!!

Mommy Update!

Well hello there lovelies!Again I apologize for me missing in action, been busy lately.

So I know I haven't kept up lately but i'll explain why. In my last post I recently got a job at one of the dollar stores and was super excited about that. Well it didn't end too well considering what happened. Scotty had recently got his flu shot and I figured he would be sick but not this sick. M y mom had been watching him for me since my schedule had been crazy. Well I got a phone call from her telling me there was something wrong with Scotty and that I needed to take him to a doctor.

So I packed up his diaper bag and everything I needed to take with me to the doctor and got on the phone with my boss. I had told him what was going on and all he said was that I had a write up when I came back to work. Honestly I couldn't believe it. You're going to write me up for taking care of my child?!? What a jerk. Come to find out Scotty not only had the flu but he had a bad stomach virus. Once I got home I messaged my boss asking when was the next time I come in for work and he never replied. I tried contacting him four times and got no response.

Finally after three days of hearing no word from my boss I figured he must have fired me. Well I was wrong, he sent me a message about 30 minutes before I had to be at work that day. Now I don't know about you but I think it was planned. I was so mad that I told him plain and simple. I quit. Yes I know it was bad to do it this way but I'm sorry if someone doesn't understand that my child comes first then I don't need to bother with them. Since I started that job, Scotty has been going through extreme anxiety/abandonment issues. Every time I would get dressed for work he would scream and cry and it would break my heart.

As for those wondering was the hubby upset that I quit my job, yes he was disappointed but he understood what I was dealing with. He said, "I don't blame you for quiting. I would have done the same." I was so thankful that he was understanding as he was. So now that I'm out of a job, John and I agreed that it would be best that I stay home with Scotty until he starts school or something like that. What do you think? I think its good to stay home with him while he's still young. What are you're thoughts?
