What'd you do on your Saturday night?
I'll tell you what I did on mine....I'd show you photos...but I can't...my camera is slowly heading to the final resting place of dead cameras. It hates me. So until it's replaced...my memories will have to do.
To start off my Saturday evening...we had some fabulous friends over. Matt & his adorable little underlings, Rowan & Gio. My boys adore Matt & love it even more when he brings them little playmates.
Gio & Hadleigh are about 9 months apart in age. hehehe...moving on. Hadleigh being the elder. They get along great and actually spend most of their time staring at each other...following each other or hugging. I love it all. It's just adorable!
Well we enjoyed "playtime" with 8 kids in the house....in case you count wrong...my kid count goes like this...
Nathanael, Thomas, Rowan, Brien, Hadleigh, Gio, Studley & Matt. Yes, you know it as well as I do...that men are just giant children. They'll agree if they're being honest! =)
We stuffed our faces full of pizza & washed it down with root beer floats. All 4 of my babies crashed around 8:30pm. A full half an hour past normal bedtime...will they sleep past 7am tomorrow...doubtful.
As soon as they're in bed, I find my cell phone and bust out EVERY SINGLE COLOR OF YARN I have on hand.
texts me & says "I need some crowns...." follows that with I'm not sure what colors...let me see what you've got"
he he he.....its a massive amount and I don't think I even sent everything. I was pulling yarn out of places I wasn't sure they could be...and NO not there. You're gross.
She picked her colors and I settled in on putting away and REorganizing all of my yarn. Which literally took me about 1.5 hours to do. Yes. 1.5 hours. I have so much & in so many colors. But I finally got it all done, looked at Studley and said...I think I need more baskets.
I laugh. Mostly because when you come into my home...aside from projects sitting around on "my" end table and a giant aqua mason jar filled with notions, every size crochet hook they make & a bunch of knitting needles...you wouldn't know I have a hoard of yarn and run my own "crochet" business from home. People ask me "where do you keep it all?" I say...hidden in every nook and cranny. And now as of tonight...it is back to being color coordinated and in the right place. It's been a long time coming.
And then I sit back, look at Studley and say..."whoa babe, watch out...I'm a woman on the ledge. Spending my saturday nights organizing yarn....uh oh. What's next?"
He just laughed. Apparently he already knew I was crazy. Who knew!
Although who would have thought my idea of a Saturday would be spending it with some crazy children & organizing yarn...and be completely ok with that! =)
What a day! Sweet, sweet Saturday!
