Back, Pumped and READY TO GO!!!

Hello all. I'm back from vacation and I'm ready to get back on track. I feel like I have a lot of catching up to do - that's because I do. WEIRD!! It never fails, when I'm gone it seems like I have twice as much to do to make up for that time lost. We had a great time at Disney World. It's something we will never forget!! Definitely happy to be home in my own space. You take "home" for granted when you are all crammed into a hotel room like sardines. Less smelly though....slightly. 

I have a lot of ideas for my crocheting and I can't wait to get started. I'm hoping to start posting my own patterns soon, but I have several crochet projects to finish before I will have the time to sit down and do that. I wish I could be like Michael Keaton in Multiplicity and duplicate myself to get more done. Only I would probably end up with a bunch of the "slow" Amber's that like pizza http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YRQFMHRSj9I&feature=results_video&playnext=1&list=PL1780F1480BD88FDF

Until then I will stick to just one of me and a healthy love of pizza. Once I start getting some of the items finished I will post pictures. I did finish the first grass rug. I'm going to be making several more colors. I will also be making some hammocks and a bunch of other unique items. Pictures to come. I have also been slightly distracted by my reading. There are just too many things to do!! Must go back to that duplication thing later. So far my kids aren't coordinated enough to handle the crocheting. And they can't read yet. I'm starting to think they are more trouble than they are worth. I must figure out some way for them to earn their keep. Yard work? No, they would probably break the mower somehow. Cooking dinner? No, we would only end up eating string cheese and pickles...well maybe I will come back to that when I get really tired of cooking. Grocery shopping? No, they would just buy toys and candy. Well I'm pretty much stumped. There must be something. Note to self: Google "child labor" later.

Ok so I have been MIA lately. It's been a little hectic at work and at home. My crocheting has been put on the back burner lately. But I did complete a couple more baby beanies yesterday. I also made my kids Disney themed hats for our trip to Disney on Friday. That's right folks, we're going to Disney for our first REAL vacation in.....FOREVER. My husband and I have never really had a vacation where we have taken several days off from work and relaxed. Everything is always so hectic.

I'm super excited about this trip to say the least. My kids are going to have so much fun. I can't wait for them to do all of the stuff that we have planned!! Princess breakfasts and makeovers and pirate adventures. They are going to be dead tired by the end of it. I wish I had made more hats, but I don't know if I will have time. I would like to make 2 hats for my stepdaughters but I don't know what they would like. 

Dear Michael Eisner please do not sue me for licensing infringement. We will still buy plenty of souvenirs. Thank you!

Anyway, when I get back from vacation I plan to get back into crocheting, because there are still plenty of things I need to make!!
