Life's Little Instructions...

Do you follow them? There are instructions every where I turn. Do this, don't do that. Today, I was working on a fairly large craft project. I have 5 of them to make, so I was going to knock them out today. I mean, it's only 5. I thought I'd have at least an hour where both babies were sleeping (ended up being a bit longer, yay!) and I'd have at least 2 of them done today. Goal was 5, settle for 2. Got that? Anywho.............it didn't turn out that way. It had nothing to do with me reading the instructions, THINKING I knew what I was doing and doing it wrong and getting frustrated with the stupid thing. Now that I've gone back and re-read the instructions, I know EXACTLY where I went wrong, but that was 4 hours ago...and I'm really no further ahead. (I haven't been working on it steady, just sporadically between laundry and other projects). So, I get to sit down and fix it....and hopefully make it work. ugh. So, loyal reader... (there's a poll here for you people that have me on a reader...)


  1. Any hints as to what your making?

    I'm curious!! :)


  2. Of course, Ethan would be the "instructions?!" one...I sometimes cringe when he attempts to put something together!

  3. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and entering the Christmas Giveaway! We homeschool two of our three, and we got a kick from George Strait's Christmas cookies song! What a hoot! Made me want to bake some cookie this afternoon. I loved your posting on leaving comments as well. This is something I've really tried to do, so I appreciate the message! Great blog and header! Keep up the good work!
