I know, I'm a day late...

So I'm a day late for my Saturday night TUSAL...But cut me some slack, I really wasn't feeling well.  I'm still not feeling well, so this is going to be short and sweet.  Here's the TUSAL:

I got the last of that pink on this section done until I start her fuku which is a little later.  You can see her eye is started but not colored yet.  Things are moving a lot faster now that I am not stitching PINK! Ha ha.  Anyway, I feel really sick tonight, so I'm going to leave you with your weekly fact and then I'm going to bed.

Random fact:  The average American is most likely to die on a Friday.

Saturday night TUSAL

Woo hoo, two weeks in a row with the TUSALs!  So...I'm glad to have been able to stitch something that wasn't pink.  Namely the tiara.  But...other than that, not much has happened lately in life.  I posted about my stupid camel spider and I posted about my free cruise.  Past that, nothing has happened!  So this is gonna be short and sweet.  Here's the TUSAL:

And here's the random fact of the week:  You cannot burp in space.

So I entered a sweepstakes a while back and just today, my phone rings with a number I've never seen before.  So I answer and the woman tells me, "Congratulations, you won!"  I was like, "Great, what did I win?"  Thinking this was some kind of sketchy thing going after my information.  Nope it was legitimate because I remember entering the sweepstakes.

I won a free four day, three night Caribbean cruise.

I have never won anything in my life.  And I win this?  I have until March of 2014 to book the cruise and I think we'll do it around Christmas time so that I can visit my family in the same trip.  The only things we have to pay for is the transportation TO the cruise, the state sales tax (which I figured I'd have to pay anyway), and the port fees.  So if I had paid for the trip, it would have been $2400 for my husband and I.  Because we won it, we have a $400 trip.  The $400 covers meals, room, any and all activities, any and all shows, and a few other things that I don't remember.

Hope to get my cruise on before I have this baby!

Wind Scorpion

So...kind of gross, but this guy:

...was in my bathroom.  Well, not him in particular, but that kind of bug (photo courtesy of  He is known as a wind scorpion and from what I've been reading, he's a type of camel spider.  They supposedly don't bite, but I'm a paranoid mama with a baby and I don't want to take the chance, so I was mean and I flushed him down the toilet.

But not before watching him for a while.  I'm weird, I know.  He (or she, I suppose) was just minding his own business when out of nowhere I turned on the bathroom light and disturbed him.  Weird part was that I had been in that bathroom not five minutes beforehand to brush my son's teeth.  I could have been standing right next to him and not known it!  Do you know how creepy that was?

The one in my bathroom was about an inch long and, like all bugs, creepy.  I'm going to go to bed now with that creepy crawling feeling.

Holy cow a Saturday night TUSAL!

So, not much has been going on in my days.  I haven't been feeling better, but I figured I'd better stitch anyway because I'm the kind of person where if I put it off for too long, I'll never pick it back up (see baby blanket project...).

My son is cutting three teeth all at once right now, so he's particularly crabby the last few days.  I can't blame him, but I've been finding myself getting short with him.  It's not his fault, I'm just stressed.

Our ants still haven't gotten the memo that we invested in pest control because they're still trying to get stuff off of our counters.  I've been very diligently cleaning the kitchen every day, so I don't anticipate them getting too out of hand.

What else is new this week...?  My husband is going to Primm tomorrow to gamble for a bit, so I had to make sure I paid the bills today so he had a budget to work with.  I wanted to go, but I think he's having a boys' day, so I decided to sit this one out.  Don't want him to feel like I always have to go everywhere with him.  I like him having friends and it's good for him to have a guys' night out once in a while.

Okay, on to the TUSAL!  So, I did pretty much all of this yesterday and today because, like I said, I'd better just do it anyway.  It's coming along nicely and I think it looks pretty good.  I've started on the fourth page of the pattern already, but you don't see that in the picture.  This picture was taken after the third page was finished.  Anyway, here it is!

It's funny, but even though I'm sick and I have a hard time doing this, I am getting excited to see what it's going to look like when it's done!

Random fact of the week:  There are 216 noodles in ever Campbell's Chicken Noodle Soup can.

Another Hiatus but a TUSAL!

I keep having excuses as to why I'm not on here, but they're really good ones, I swear!  I have been dealing with a really bad ant problem in my apartment this last week or so.  To a point where I have been nonstop scrubbing my house from top to bottom.  Every single day.

I keep a clean house usually anyway, but this ant problem made things hard.  My son was playing near the baby gate and all of a sudden he starts screaming bloody murder and acts like he's panicking.  He runs over to me and I notice ants all over him.  I took him to the bathroom and sprayed him off in the tub and then once the tub was cleaned I gave him a eucalyptus bath.  He's got little red welts all over him now.  Kinda stinks.

We found out that the ant problem is caused by our downstairs neighbor.  Well...more like the pest control that they had done just moved the ants.  It didn't get rid of them, they just moved into OUR apartment instead.  Now that our house is relatively ant free (we still see one or two in the kitchen), I don't always feel like something is crawling on me, even when something isn't.

Enough about my ant problem haha.  I got about an hour's worth of stitching done recently while my morning sickness was at bay.  I stitch pretty slowly because I have bad eyesight, so bear with me a bit because not much got done.  I've been working on managing my morning sickness and I have it almost under control, so I'm hoping to be back to stitching regularly soon!'s the TUSAL:

I got all the sugar pink finished finally (the shine on her hair).  So now I don't have any more of that to do until the next square.

As with every TUSAL, before I sign off, here's a random fact:  Isaac Newton died a virgin at 84 years old.

Been on Hiatus

I was actually able to stitch this morning before my morning sickness kicked in.  I've only finished the light pink in Chibi Moon's hair, but at least it's something!  I hate neglecting my stitching, but just trying to focus makes my stomach turn.

Nothing really new lately.  Next Saturday I will actually have a TUSAL to put up, so that's pretty cool. I haven't had one in what...three weeks already?  Sorry to anyone who actually reads this.

I figured since I didn't have anything to update, I might as well not say anything, but I figured it has been a long enough time in between that I didn't want everyone to think I'd died or something ha ha!
