Oh where oh where has my blogging time gone?

OK, so Piper now naps 1-2 times a day, for maybe an hour each time if I am lucky. In the past month so far I have created 27 (count them TWENTY-SEVEN) layouts, not including the 3 ATCs and the 2 page layout for a circle journal that I can't post. I have spent over 3weeks on-and-off waiting for a plumber. Plus 2 mini kits, and 2 (or 3 I can't remember) full size kits, and have 3 more kits in the works. PHEW!

OK so here's the quick update:

4 month check-up: 14lb 3.5oz, 25 inches, 3 more shots - but the fever only lasted 2 days this time. Piper can sit almost all by herself, and can pull up to sitting by holding on to your fingers. Her vocabulary is MASSIVE (lol) including such things as aahhheee, bwahhh, and a razzing sound

I am down another 2 pounds, and my non-maternity non-real-size pants are starting to get too big. Still nowhere near my real size, but there you have it! I am NOT AT ALL looking forward to going back to work in January, it is the ABSOLUTE last thing I want to do. BUT I have to. So off I go, 2 times a week, to teach students physiological psychology while they whine that it's too hard and too much information...

Did anyone download the freebie I put up for halloween? I'd love to hear what you think about it! Its funny, I give away mini kits at Digital Freebies for completing challenges, and I sell stuff there, and mini kits for ScrapMommies, but I hardly ever get any feedback on my kits (other than DH telling me how wonderful I am, and the occasional PM that someone likes this freebie) so if you use one of my kits, I'd love to hear about it! PM me on one of the sites (Digital Freebies, ScrapMommies, RAKscraps, SBB)

Alrighty, Pip is waking up...oohhh, I almost got an hour this time!!

Off to Whole Foods to get some baby food (she started "solids" on Saturday with some Sweet potatoes...she likes it, she really likes it LOL)

Happy Halloween

OK so it's a couple of days late, but Happy Halloween nonetheless :) For those of you digi scrappers out there, the "card" above was made with my Wicked Cool Halloween kit from Digital Freebies, and if you happen to be reading this and need a cool word art for your halloween layouts, you can download a freebie from me at this link : This will be available for 7 days...after that it goes bye bye :)

It's been a little crazy around here... our basement flooded twice in a week. The second time so badly we had to have the carpet removed. Piper is getting VERY big. The child weighs a TON and of course is still too small to get around on her own, which means that mama has to haul her butt around everywhere, and lately that means everywhere I go. If I leave the room she HOWLS, so unless I want to hear her screaming until I return to where she is, I have to take her with me. So she lays on the bed while I fold clothes, she sits in her bouncer on the kitchen floor while I make get the idea...

And it's that time of year again! Fall...yes, but not what I am thinking about. It's time to get your spring classes! Ugh... I SO don't want to go back to work. I have no desire to deal with students. Especially freshmen...I am so hoping that I don't get any intro classes. Right now I only have one class, a physio class (thank god, my favorite), am still shopping for some evening or on-line classes, but haven't gotten any yet.

I am considering becoming a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, make a little money, save on my stamp addiction... just not sure *how* much I would make, versus how much I would spend...

Well the Pipster is getting rowdy, so I should go feed her. You know I wasn't sure if I was going to like breast feeding, but it's so darned warming, no's just right there ready whenever!
