New Sweatpants

I made myself a pair of yoga type pants out of a 2XL hoodie (we had two and no one wears them) they are dark green and super comfy I'm going to take pictures of them later and post them. I tried to make a pair out of a t-shirt from my husbands work but the sleeves were too short to make a waist band so i have to get some fabric to finish them. I have 5 small items and one medium item done for the giant swap im in and tomorrow is my husbands 21s birthday so I'm decorating the house with lots of birthday happiness today before h gets home from work. The weather here in Reno is really nice 78 degrees tomorrow and 81 on sunday a super nice weekend to be outside. OOOOOO I almost forgot I got another guinea pig she is so cute, she has really short black fur with a few brown spot and a little white spot on her nose, her name is Puddles I dont think i need to explain that one. when i post pictures of my sweatpant im probably going to put up a picture of her too.

I am so lazy

I am so bad at keeping up with things but heres a little update. I have one sleeve, the back and part of one side of the front done of a sweat I'm making for my self and I started a simplier on that I'm making out of hand spun yarn I got from a friend of mine, I'm almost done with my dads blanket I just have two more border sides to go, i organized a swap on craftsters, the couples swap, and I just joined a huge swap, the giant multi-theme swap. Thats my crafty update now for a personal one, my hubby got two test for two different police departments for May, I'm super excited for him and he has bronchitis again and a broken capulary (I know its spelled wrong) in his throat so hes bee coughing up blood we are just lucky that he broke it when his did and went to the doctor before the bronchitis turned into pnemounia again. I have a new job that I'm unsure if I like in or not yet. I'm still looking for a distance learning school for college I think I've found a couple of them I just have to pick the perfect one and then hope I get the federal funding. Collin is potty training which is an adventure we had a big set back when we went on vacation for 5 day and he was too busy to use the potty so now we have to start all over. MY chest is bruised from a concert I went to with my hubby, the dropkick murphys, we were right up front and the railing was chest height and when there are a ton of people pushing behind you and your smashed against a metal fence pretty much it tends to bruise. other then that there isn't much going on.

Okay so the past to month have been stress full to the point where I haven't even been able to function, the only thing that has kept me half way sane is my new love of knitting and starting my new sweater, I'm adventurous and making it up as I go along and I'm organizing a swap and working on a friends website and hemming 12 pairs of pants for a friend of my husbands and planning a weekend trip to my grandmas who lives 8 hours away to go to a nascar race at the end of the month and trying to finish up all my WIPs which hasn't been going so well and today we got out tax refund and that added about 5 more things to my list, and just to top it off my dads roommate died on my sons b-day on the 9th and I'm missing the second craft meeting in a row and I am so bummed out. I hate being frazzeled and stressed because I simply can not function, it took me two weeks to figure out something that should have taken 10 minutes. I'm hoping the frazzeled thing goes away because the stress level isn't about to go down any time soon, because starting pribably monday we (meaning me) are going to start potty training my son whose 2 now. I just want to scream and hide in a dark room for a day or two.
