Just Stuff

I barely averted what I thought was oncoming bronchitis. Bronchitis is not my friend. In fact, it is my worst enemy. And now that I have asthma, I fear it even worse. Since my pregnancy, my asthma has not cleared up. I've been meaning to blog about it for a few days now but whenever I run, I feel like someone is inside my lungs with a feather - yeah it tickles & burns when I run. I've taken to running with my inhaler. But yesterday I woke up to what felt like the startings of something really bad. I prepped (lots of medicine, cleared my schedule, made contingency plans for kids etc.). But I woke up today and felt reasonable good...and that is so good. It is. Because next time I have bronchitis, I know I'll be in the hospital. True story.

So with a relatively clear schedule today I frittered away most of it like I do most every day until I decided to do something productive. I made some of these...
They were really easy. If anyone would like the instructions, I took pictures of the process and would be glad to post an instructional how-to. Here's Tinkerpot with it on...
... ok, this headband is a little overwhelming on her - how about this one...
You get a better idea with it on Bugs:
A little while later, I decided to throw together some pasta salad. And I began to muse about food. Olives.When I was young, my mom never bought sliced olives! She'd enlist the crew she'd born to cut them up into slices rather than pay the extra money. Imagine my surprise when, as an adult, perusing the grocery store that I found that you could actually buy them that way! Whodathunkit?

Lastly, peas. More specifically...canned peas. Who likes these things? And why in all the world did I buy a case of them for my food storage when no one in my family can stand them? What do people do with them? If anyone out there has an idea of what I can do with an entire case of gross green peas, then please - I'm begging you...enlighten me.

Oh... Chad won't let me do the bows. I have to sneak them on her head, but as soon as he can snatch her up he hides the bows. I'm not kidding.
As for the peas.. canned are gross, frozen are awesome.
Hope your feeling better. Take care of you!

oooh,that's too bad Rachel. That's one of the most fun things about having a girl is the bows. But he'll have to get used to them. They're not going away and as she gets bigger, they look even cuter. Not a day goes by that Nat doesn't have SOMETHING in her hair, little clips, a bow, a headband with a flower - something. tell him he has his boys, now let you have your girl! no fair!

B, C, and D said...

Super cute bows! If only I could get my little lady to keep them in. She prefers to pull them out and destroy them. Stinker!

Amy said...

Oh, that's too bad C! I know D would look so cute in them!

Ellen said...

okay, i'll bite. how do you make the bows?

kelly d. prefers canned peas over frozen or fresh. Strange, I know, but there it is.

L - I'll post a tutorial. I'd do it now but i accidentally deleted all of the pics on my photo card so I need to re-make the bows to get the pics. I'll do it soon though!
