Happy, Happy

Mikey Laundry

What a week! Daylight savings time always kills me, but I love the extra light–especially now that I’m walking.

Monday

I had my roots touched up, and if you have as much gray as I do (I’m almost 75% gray and have had premature gray since my 20s) you know nothing short of a miracle baby or a lotto win could top that euphoric feeling of fresh color.

Tuesday

Mikey learned how to do laundry. Specifically, he learned how to launder his baseball uniform. It’s now his responsibility to prepare his uniform and baseball bag the night before every game, and after each game he has to wash and dry his uniform. Of course, this can wait until the next day if the game doesn’t get out until after 9:00pm, but he still has to put all those grubbies on the laundry room floor. Let’s just say there was a last minute rush/panic search for socks/belt/hat and return trip in traffic for cleats 30 minutes before a game that will never, ever happen again so help me, God.

Wednesday

I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT HAPPENED, BUT I’M SURE I THOUGHT IT WAS IN ALL MY LIFE THE MOST EXCITING THING TO EVER HAPPEN IF MY LIFETIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thursday

Larissa and I finished Mikey’s quilt! Now all we need to do is the hand-tie both of them. We estimated each quilt will need 150 ties. Then we whimpered.

Friday

I’m meeting Andrea and Danni for lunch to discuss Craft Cabinet stuff. Important stuff, like, what we’re doing.

Speaking of The Craft Cabinet, those of you who follow me on Twitter and Facebook (links in the gray flag at the right) already know this, but I’ve been writing at The Craft Cabinet blog all week! I’ve been geeking out over First Position, a ballet documentary I watched with the Mister and the boys last week. So good.

I’ve taken inspiration from the documentary and applied it to fashion, food, home decor, and art. That’s pretty much the format Andrea will follow for that blog, and we’re really excited to do something so different from the everyday. I hope you check it out! (And like it, of course.)

The Weekend

NOTHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Have a happy, happy weekend, everyone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! <---One last time for good measure.

    I’m with you on the hair! I cover my hair – I wear wigs or other head coverings 24/7. My wigs were fading in our Southern California sunshine so I took one in for a dye job just last week. Oh my what a change. Really, having the right color makes me look better, walk taller, smile more, feel good. So I took the other one in this week. I guess it’s my equivalent of a William Morris Project!

  2. Ditto on the hair situation! I got my first grey at 19. Started having to color in earnest at 26. And it shows up ever so much more in dark hair. I have a friend who is blondish and she’s like half grey and you can’t tell a thing. So unfair! I hate having to color. Some day I’m going to give it up, but I don’t know when. Probably not for another 10 yrs. I worry about the chemicals.

Hi! I’m Jules.

I used to be an attorney, but it made me grumpy. Now I write about life, sweet and savory, as a wife and mother to two small boys. My knowledge of dinosaurs knows no bounds.

You can read more, including the meaning behind the name Pancakes and French Fries here. And, yes, I really am phenomenally indecisive.
