Mother Wore Tights

Last night I was not feeling well. I was coughing and had a fever. I took some medicine and fell asleep for a few hours. I got up at around 11:00pm and messed around on the computer for a bit. Then I went downstairs and watched Jon & Kate Plus 8 that I had recorded. Well, it was around 3am when I turned the channel to HBO. The most wonderful movie was on. I love old movies. I don't know why I haven't heard of "Mother Wore Tights", but I loved it. It starred Betty Grable and Dan Dailey. Old movies like that are such feel good movies. Needless to say it was around 5am before I finally went to bed. Now, I still have a cough and feel worse than I did Have any of you seen or heard of this movie? If you like old movies, then I totally recommend it.

New Couches

Improv was fun Friday night. I could not shake the headache I had though. It was horrible. We had a big crowd and some crazy moments. Saturday night I missed my first improv ever. I had to work so I could not perform. I totally missed my friends getting engaged on stage. One of my friends recorded it and you can see it here . That is so exciting. They are such a cute couple and met at the theatre as did most of my friends and their spouses.

My mom and her boyfriend came over today to bring our new couches. Well, they are not new new, but new to us : ) I love them. They are very wide and roomy. Well, I cooked for us. When everyone was finished eating, I asked, well thought I asked my mom's boyfriend if he was full in spanish. Well, everyone started laughing and my mom said, "you just asked him if he is pregnant". I guess I need to brush up on my

Improv at the Yucca

Tomorrow is Improv at the Yucca. I have been doing improv for many years now and love it. We usually do a show in January and another in October. I hope I get my funny bone to working. It's going to be fun. The show has sold over 230 tickets and counting. Many people buy the tickets at the door.

My mom calls me and tells me to make sure to have the couches out of the house by Sunday. She bought us some new ones. Well, tomorrow we won't have time and Saturday I have a party to do. I called my cousin Robert and asked him if he could bring his truck. He sounded horrible. Poor thing is sick. He and Matt are going to take our sectional to the Salvation Army on Saturday if he feels better. He bought like six tickets to the show. He is my biggest supporter when I do Improv or any other show.

I'm so excited. I got an order for a wedding. I am going to make the bride's bracelet and her bridesmaids' bracelets. They are going to be white with royal blue. I will post a picture when I am done to get everyone's input. Have a good weekend : )

My boys

Here's a pic of my boys. The one in the middle is Phoenix smiling. He loves to Journey on the left is the oldest, then Phoenix, then the one on the right is our baby Shadow (even though he is the largest of the three). They love playing with all their toys that their grandparents and Aunt Angie send them. They have sooooo many. They crack me up fighting over toys and chasing each other all over the place.

New stitched bracelet

I stitched this bracelet last night. I like color, so I made this one with a variety of colors. I need to order more swarovski so I can make a double strand. I am going to make a pork roast with saurkraut tomorrow. I invited my cousin Robert and his girlfriend Jaime to come over. Matt and I love when they come over. We watch movies, play games, and just sit and chat. Last night Journey drove us crazy. He had chewed up a plastic ball that squeaked. Well, we threw it away because Phoenix will eat it if not. Journey stood by the trash can and cried and cried. He would look up at Matt with those puppy dog eyes pleading "dad, I need that ball". As soon as Matt would turn to face the tv, Journey would jump up and try to get the ball out of the trash can. When Matt would turn around, he would sit quickly as to not get caught and give his sad look. He's so sneaky. I tried to give him other toys, but no, he wanted that chewed up ball. When he finally realized he was not going to get it, he jumped up on the chair and laid down all sad like. Poor Journey.

What do you do to organize?

I have always wished that I was more of an organized person. I try to organize and plan on doing this for the next few days. I woke up early this morning and started. Is it me or does it seem like the bigger place you have, the more junk and stuff you accumulate? I feel as if I never have enough space for all my stuff. So, I am now in the mindset of if I have not used it in the past 6 months, in the trash it goes. I do have all my beads organized in cases where screws usually go. I think this works best for me. It's other stuff that I need to get in order. I would love for ya'll to share your organizational tips. How do you organize? What do you do?
