Look at my hair blowing in the fake wind.

Those were the day's my friend. I thought they'd never end. Never thought about stretchmarks, wrinkles, cellulite, sun damage, grey hairs, dry skin, readers,sagging body parts, memory loss, hearing loss, having to circle the age group on documents closest to the bottom. Well you get the picture. It all happens in a flash. There is a flip side though, you aren't expected to do as much. You can claim you didn't hear them, you can't remember if that was you who spent all that money on the credit card. You couldn't see the amount when you signed for the stuff, because you didn't have your glasses with you that day , clearly it had your signature on it. The wrinkles become laugh lines, the stretchmarks can be tattooed, the sun damage can be lasered, the grey can be covered, and you can now also know that you came through it all so far so good.

Empty Nest Syndrome

Ok It happened, the babies left the nest for good. It was such a joy everyday to go by my window and watch them grow. They were the sweetest little duo. Of course, one egg hatched 2 days before the other. So one left ahead of the other as well. I hope they will return again as this is the same nest that was used this time last year. The nest is a nice reminder that some of the greatest moments in life are free.

Time out

This poem was written due to an actual event that happened to one of my sons in his classroom, in Elementary School. He was doing what kids with ADHD, OCD, and Tourettes do sometimes in class,(they still refused to give my kid an I.E.P., they didn't have the funds and to much red tape, translation , it cuts into their bonus plans) and the teacher asked him to pick up his work and go to the class next class over, when Rand gathered his things and got up to leave the entire class applauded. Well needless to say I only heard about this the next day from his twin brother who was in the same class as Rand. He told me what happened when Rand said he didn't feel good and didn't want to go back to school the next day. I did call the school and kept Rand home for the rest of that week and that too gave me a chance to calm down and gather my thought on how to deal with this situation. I agonized for my child that entire week and came up with a poem( writing is my meditation). That following Monday I marched into school (well walked fast) and went straight to the principle and the teacher and read them the poem I had written the week of the incident and asked if I could read it to Rands class, Rand was still not going back to school until I straightened everything out. They both agreed and at the end of the school period I was able to go to his class and read the poem to all those kids, not to hurt them but to try and express how they hurt Rand. They all listened very intently and I really think most of them got it. Although there's always that one kid (kinda like mine) who walked over to me after hearing the poem and said " How can you stand being with Rand all the time" I leaned down to her level (remember these are all 4rd graders) and looked into her beautiful little face and said because he's my child. Here is the poem that I wrote and read to all of them:

Oh what a wonderful morning Oh what a wonderful day.

What a difference a day makes. Even an hour, a minute, OK a second in my case. AHHHHHHHHHH it feels really, really good to get things done. I even slept good last night, HMMM, maybe that's the reason I feel so good today. Anyway I have been getting pretty good at this electronic world wide web stuff (who says that anymore) ie. web-sites, blogs, flickr, youtube, and some other places I know I've started to create and have yet to be able to locate at the moment. Have no fear it will definitly appear.
Until then I just keep looking and learning.

Baby needs a new pair of shoes.



OK I guess I'm very talkative today. What else is new. I just wanted to post some of the ideas that can be done with my free Baby Bootie pattern at http://www.adhdknitting.com/. Endless possibilities. Great Baby Shower gifts to knit up in a jiffy.

Oh what a wonderful morning oh what a wonderful day...


So today has been one of my bestest days in about a week. The upgraded meds. are working. I guess my doc realized we needed some med management after I repeated VAGINA about 5 times in his office. He just looked at me and said is that a tic? I said is what a tic? There's your sign! Well it is better then the last word I was hooked on for, oh let's say about a year. I actually left my house today. I had to take Rand to the orthodontist. I sat in the car and crocheted more bullion's. I just can't seem to stop making those darn things. Here's one of the bags I used the crocheted bullion's on. I really love this bag. My girlfriend of over 40 years knitted the original bag out of cashmere. She didn't like the looseness of it. So she asked me to do something with it, and well this is what I did. Oh and by the way she really just wanted me to add a strap. See what happens when you have OCD. She also told me I could groom her dog Roxie when I watched her for about a month. When Stacy returned from Europe poor Roxy was bald. My Sphynx thought it was her sister. Ok enough said.

I feel better.

I have to say that I feel a lot better now, then I did earlier. Kenyetta sent me two great cards: I tried to post them for everyone to enjoy. I guess I did something wrong. If you want to view I guess you'll have to copy and paste. Sorry but they are funny and cute.

Of course I'm wide awake now.

See what happens when you sleep all day. Duh, your up all night. I hope I do fall asleep eventually. TV isn't that great right now and I really don't feel like doing anything that would require me moving off my sofa.

Still hyper as hell.

It's another day and I still can't stop my heart from racing. I hate this feeling. I wish I knew what I could do to calm down, but that is something that is not in my makeup. My brain feels like a commercial sized washing machine stuck on the SPIN cycle. I have so many things going on up there and can't seem to get a thing done. If only I could stop this cycle and put everything on delicate. I don't think any amount of medicine is going to make that happen. I have so many things that I need to get done.

Today My Mind Is Racing Faster Then My Body

OK so I took all my meds. as I do everyday, and my heart is pounding out of my DD chest. My brain is on over drive and my fingers are clumsy. Does anyone else know that feeling? It is a horrible way to start your day. I have so much to do today and I just can't seem to get anything done. I want to, I really do. Maybe if I work out earlier then planned I could come down a bit? Hmmmmmmmmmmm.
Nawww. I really don't want to leave the house at this moment. I have too many things to get done. I just want to be able to enjoy those things that I need to get done. Dang. I hate this feeling. Well on a better note the yarn finally came in for our contest winners. Yay. It took forever. I am so happy to be able to give them their winnings. I hate having loose strings with anything. Well i guess for now I will just slow it down a notch and try my best not to F*ck up to many things that I touch today. Peace

The swap is on it's way.

Well today I mailed off my swap goody box. Plus I sent my other moderator a yarn package as well. I am so thanksful to have such great friends on raverly and the greatest are the two people who help me to moderate our adhdknitting group. I couldn't do it without them. Thanks girls. I hope that they like what I sent. I always worry that it is never enough. It is hard to put a price on all that they do for our group. So here's a shout out to Kenyetta and Teri. Love ya girls.

My Pink Guitar

videoThis is Brooky and I preparing the surface of her little pink guitar to decoupage. Brooky and I are always busy with our arts and crafts. There is hardly a weekend that goes by that the two of us aren't emerged in something artsy. We love to create new things and we never run out of ideas.

OK So I'm not the only one who thought of it.

I mean I really thought I was the original thinker thoughter upper of the PILL BOTTLE SWAP. Not true at all. While I was searching my Flickr sites I came upon the most amazing pill bottles decorated with all kinds of unique ideas. Dang. I guess I have to get up pretty early to come up with something original. Well anyhow, we are still going to march on. We are going to create the best pill bottle swaps this land has ever seen. We are going to amaze our swappers and ourselves. We are going to come up with pill bottle ideas that have never and I mean never been done before(can you tell I haven't taken my meds. yet). OK we are going to make awesome bottles filled with awesome swap goodies,what ever we can fit on the inside or the outside of the bottles. I will show you. We will show you with pride all of our pill bottles we've sent and received. So hang in there and wait for our postings.

Pill Bottle Swap




This is my pill bottle that will be filled with goodies and shipped off to my swapper. I have just finished the final layer of glaze. It is now drying and hopefully it will be smooth as glass. I learned a lot of do's and don't's for the next one.

OK so I just found my site again.

Well of course like everything else in my cyber world I download, set-up, post, submit and then can't find anything that I have done. Thanks to my friend Kenyetta she knew just where it was. Thanks girl. I had to copy and post the site and then favorite place it. Hopefully I will find my way back here again. Hopefully. I have been so busy. We are currently in the middle of our PILL BOTTLE SWAP on our thread at Raverly. We are really having a great time. All of our members are so great and we really do have so much in common. Mainly we all love fibers. Yarn of every color and kind. We love to share our projects and our ideas. We are there for one another and that is a powerful thing.
