crochet, life, and a little of everything

Every one is talking about the high price of gas. Seems like my old truck has decided to drink the stuff now like water. Maybe I just think I am getting worse gas milage because it cost so much to fill it up now.

Combining tasks has become a must. A trip to the grocery store is put off till time to check the mail at the post office and if anything needs picking up at Wal Greens which all those places are close together.

They are pushing the hybrid cars but where can you find fuel for them? I am not even sure I understand what a hybrid car is.

Things are just going along the same here. I am watching the baby a lot but her mom doesn't have to work tonight so she has her in their bedroom trying to make her lay down. The baby was up early this morning so she might go to sleep. For her mom's sake I hope she does. Watching a two year old can really wear you out. The potty training is coming along but she messes her diaper then wants to pull it off and go potty - you can imagine the messes we have had to clean up. Some day soon now the baby will get the idea of going potty before she goes in her diaper.

Dress Up

Marissa got her mother's sweat shirt and wanted to put it on. You can see her mother sleeping on the couch.
Isn't this such an angelic little face. We are working on potty training and she is doing pretty good. She went potty yesterday and was so excited she was running around and telling her momie that she went potty. Hope the training goes good she is really getting too big to be in diapers but she is hard headed. We praise her a lot when she manages to make it to the potty.

Days and nights are pretty much filled with watching the baby if I don't have a doctor's appointment. Nothing much else going on.

Summer Visit

Here is Amber - Steve's grand daughter. She is going to be all of eleven on the eleventh of this month. She is down here to spend the summer with her mother. She is a tall girl but tallness runs in the family. She will be spending the night with us a couple of times and with her grand mother.

This is Amber and her mom, Steve's daughter, Dawn. She is a tall one too.

I am really relaxing in the coolness of the house. We went three days without A/C during the hottest days we have had so far. I have to admit that the land lord, some of his men, and even the neighbor tried to fix it for me but they put a different fan in and it was running backwards. The regular A/C man was out of town but as soon as he got back he came over. He had to go to the land lord's and get the old parts that they took off and rebuild the fan and put the parts they had left out back in. I was so grateful that he got it fixed. Slept pretty good last night. Was able to use my oxygen - the machine puts off too much heat to run it with no A/C on. That is the machine I use when I am sleeping. It was hard for me to breath with it so hot in here. There was no breeze blowing and I think opening the windows made it hotter in the house.

Baby went to a birthday party today and was worn out. She got her pillow and blanket and laid down and went to sleep - I know I shouldn't let her sleep so late but I will wake her up in a little while. The baby has almost stopped throwing fits - she found out they don't do any good. Now we are working on her throwing things. If she throws something at me I snag it and won't give it back to her.
The potty training isn't coming along too good. She still hasn't gotten the idea that she is suppose to sit on the potty before not after she wets her diaper. One day the idea will click.

Have a whole row of yellow stickers for doctor's appointments but think I am going to change a couple of them. This heat has just gotten me tired out. I can't wait till it starts raining and cooling things off some.
