All in a Day..

My day did not start well this morning. First I hit Jacob's car with my van! Didn't hurt it too bad and Jacob was able to fix the small dent but still! Then I go to MG to drop off Bug at her moms and head to Dollar General. I get my shopping done and head out. I put the baby in the van and turn around to get my stuff out of the cart. "Where's My Cart?!? It's GONE!" Look over and I see it speeding off through the parking lot all by itself. Thankfully there are no other cars in the parking lot. I go frantically chasing it across the parking lot. The children are laughing hysterically in the van! I catch it and get my stuff loaded. Oh what a day..

Happy Birthday!
Today is my wonderful Mother-In-Laws birthday. I'm blessed to have a mother-in-law as wonderful as she is. She is one of the most loving and hard working women I know!

Afternoon Milk

Both of my little ones in school have a new student in their class that is in foster care and is placed in the Wright Co Children's Home. Foster children receive free lunches but not free milk in the afternoon. The Children's Home does not provide money for milk. Today I sent extra milk money with both my kids to pay for these little girls milk and I will continue to do so. It is only .25 but it means so much to these kids not to be left out.


People ask what they can do to help foster kids and this is just one of the many ways. It cost $1.25 a week! The first day I sent money with my little girl after she came she almost cried because she had never got to have milk in the afternoon before. She is so excited to bring the money to help her new classmate. It's the little things that matter.

I encourage any of you who wanted to help but just didn't know what to do to find a child and sponsor their afternoon milk. It's a inexpensive way to put a smile on a child's face and nothing is better than that!

Baby Cockatiels

Yesterday evening we noticed that our female cockatiel had laid two eggs! We have had these birds for over a year now and this is the first time they have ever laid eggs despite their obvious love for one another. So far there are just two eggs. We will just have to wait and see if she lies anymore.

 

Here is their little nest I made them. Hopefully in a month we'll have a little family of birds. I'm going to need a bigger cage.

Yard Sale's
This morning I went to a few yard sales with my mother-in-law and found a few good buys. I've been giving some thought to renting a few booths at Antique Malls, craft places and/or flea markets. This way at least part of my business can stay open and we'll just see how it goes.

Anyway, Here are some of my deals of the day.


The big box is filled with cake decorating items like the grocery stores get in to put on their cakes. They are all still brand new and in the packages. I only gave $2 for the entire box. Probably my best deal of the day!

In the baggie is beads to make jewelry and a few little wooden craft items.

The bottom picture is Christmas birdhouses. They are so cute! There is a General store, Antiques, Bakery, Church, Post Office and a school. I just loved them.

Sulking
I'm trying to keep my head up. It's hard. Jacob says I just need to focus on craft shows and working from home, but that's hard when all of my tools and supplies were in the building. Crazy as it might seem my sewing machine and my cordless glue gun are probably the two things I'll miss the most. My cordless glue gun I can replace fairly inexpensively, but my sewing machine will have to wait. Sigh...

URG this is hard.
