Then last night, a huge friggin spider made home in front of our back door out back.......if someone was not paying attention they would have walked right into this huge spider web...............this spider was ugly and big..........so brave me goes for the can of starch.........and I try starching the thing, the stupid thing starts webbing up farther, so i grab the mop that was out there drying, and destroy his web...........make him homeless!!!! then i go to hit the wire it was standing on............the chicken............running from me, i will stalk a spider until the thing is dead!!!! It falls on the what i think is the ground, but NOOOOOOO, it falls closer to me, so now its coming after me!!!!!...............ok fine, I have shoes on!!!! Its staring me down on the steps, i am shaking and screaming, but BAM!!!! I hit it with my very flimsy flip flop, do my little freaked out screaming dance of fits.......................and can't find it, look at the shoe, no guts on it, DAMN!!!! the stupid spider got away from me, no doubt stalking me behind some hooped up blade of grass, waiting to get me..................EEEEEWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!! Did i mention I am deathly afraid of these things???............i go running through the yard, again doing my little dance of fits.................arms flaring around...............feet jumping up and down, my whole entire body was shaking.............(please no, "oh is that what the earth was shaking for," comments) I swear I looked like a sick chicken running around with its head cut off..................I ran into the house and made my mom check me, full body search!!!!..............."CHECK ME CHECK ME" You know those spider can be very very sneaky!!!!! they will hunt you down........lay in wait for the perfect opportunity to pounce on ya and bring you down!!!
Just thought I would share with you my wonderful ability to look and act like a coward!!!! WooHooo huh?

an overhead view of the squares. I did 8X8 so a pretty good size afghan, I am glad to have them done finally, and am going to wait on the 12" squares and put them together when I have more matching colors. I took a couple days break from crocheting, but found myself going through crochet withdrawals!! So am starting on this.....................
a Teddy Bear square for an afghan for Aiden. I am using Red Hearts, "Warm Brown" and white with dark brown for the face features. I did this square tonight and will do squares in between in a the warm brown and then a white, so the squares will be a teddy bear square, a warm brown square, white square, then a teddy bear square and so on. I will put them together as I finish each square. I will probably do 35 squares. I am going to also start back up on halloween crochet and Christmas soon.

Another shot and him still making sure to get in the shot.
I really like how this came out.
Well i have one afghan done with the patterned exchange squares I have gotten from swaps. I didn't think I would like how this came out, but I used every square I have gotten, minus a couple that were too big, they measured over 8" Some of these were smaller than others, but I managed to get them together. I do like it and have decided to keep it for now. I am working on the granny squares now, my hands are really cramped up today, I am doing them in a white border as well, most of them have white borders except a few, but i have crocheted a white border around them. I think in my next traditional granny square exchanges I will ask for a black border. I have about 6 with the last rows being black. I am hoping to get colors in Purples and greens, they are really pretty together, or just different shades of purple.
I joined another swap from the friendship room, and that will start October 1st and is any shade of purple, solid colors only, I am thinking this will be with about 40 other ladies. I am looking forward to that swap.
Anyway I have been cleaning today, had to move the living room, where I had the couch, Aiden would get on the back and play with the locks on the door, and the light switch, I had visions of him falling over. Its done finally, and then I cleaned the utility room while i was making dinner, and after dinner started on the dining room, I really need to wash the floors in here.
AJ is doing really well on his homework, he has a spelling test Tuesday, so I had him study them and finish his weekly workout that is due tomorrow.
Aiden is walking around singing.........LOL my little cutey!
I will write more later, I am going to finish online, and the dining room, then hopefully will get that blanket done.

The finished mummy, this came out so adorable and is my favorite of the three, AJ really likes it too.
A witch I just did, I decided instead of striped socks, i would just do something differently, by using two colors. I have not added her face yet, waiting to get all them done so i can add faces to all the halloween stuff at once. Here is the link to her.

Well AJ survived his first day of school, he was glad to see his friends and his two best friends, Blake and Cory..............they are in different classes, but will see each other during lunch and recess................his class will have two teachers again this year, one who will teach math and science, the other reading and history and stuff.........not sure why they do that, they have one teacher for the morning, then the two 5th grade classes switch classrooms. I called Ellen today from the office to see if they got the bussing fixed, but they still have him scheduled to be picked up a ways from here, and I told them no, he has always been picked up at our corner since kindergarten, and I am not having my son walk over 10 minutes to the bus stop they want to pick him up from. That is stupid! Especially since they come this way anyway.
Anyway I got more grey yarn for my mummy, and finished the second mummy, now I am making the wraps for him, I am almost finished with one, and will take a picture once its completely done which will be tonight, but will post picture tomorrow probably. Its really cute, and AJ walked into the living room as i was "wrapping" the mummy, and really loved it, saying how cute it was.
So I am off to relax, just rode my bike up to Walgreens and am hot, its over 100 degrees out, plus i have a very tired little rugrat that needs to settle down.
Aiden will be really sad, he loved snuggling with AJ in the mornings watching cartoons.

I am doing ok, just tired, my mom decided to wash the curtains, so I have been up and down on a step ladder taking them down.........plus we have to hang new blinds up in the dining room. But decided to clean the windows really good, I usually try to get to them once a month, but I won't say how long its been since I last did them.......LOL...........I know my knees are going to be killing me here soon, from the up and down on the step stool.
Well tomorrow is the FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL for AJ, I don't think he is ready, but he will have to be come tomorrow morning, He is also not going to be happy about starting his school schedule tonight, I have been having him go to bed earlier than usual for summer, the past week, which was not welcomed by AJ LOL Oh well. So we have to get his room cleaned early, get all his school stuff packed up for him to take tomorrow morning.
Aiden will be sad, he gets up in the morning and goes into AJs room right away and snuggles with AJ while they watch cartoons. It is sooo cute and precious!
I guess I should get some email answered and then go finish up the living room, Aiden is tired, but of course fighting his nap with everything hes got..........speaking of the rotten one, here he is hanging on my arm, so i will try to get him to settle down.

This is the mummy one, done using the same pattern as for Frank Jr, but he is not done yet, I still have to do the wrapping for him, and another one for AJ, but have to get more grey yarn, i might have enough to do the body, but not sure on the arms and legs.......There is only one place that sells this grey and its about a 30-40 minute drive and I have no car right now. :(
I just got this in the mail from a swap i was in in July, I think she did a great job on this square, i really like it.
This is the Fridgie I made for a swap.......I really like this. Will add the magnet and mail it off soon.
This is called a CD bag I did for a swap I was in awhile back, I liked it so much that I did another one for myself, this is mine, I did hers in blue and white, which my mother is bugging me to make her one using the blue and white.
The COTM squares, 6" I loved these colors together and it was sooo hard to part with these, but I did somehow and they were mailed today!!
Another one of my handsome boys!!!
AJ and the Star Wars sword he got from Brett
The boys are both doing good, AJ has completely healed from his broken collar bone, he does have some problems with it, its bumped up more than usual, but the dr says that will go down within a few years hopefully. He does have some pain, not so much pain, as it is just sore at times, usually when he is playing around or something like that. He has had a good but slow summer, we had a few times where i was ready to pull my hair out. He would have kids over all the time, and it just got to be too much. He is not friend with Jesse anymore and that is just fine with me, I got tired of listening to that boy whine about everything, he was possessive as well. Nothing major happened except that his parents apparently thought it was my job to supply them with entertainment for them and Jesse, they invited themselves for the Fourth of July, to eat our food that WE cook, and use OUR fireworks we kept telling them no, but they came over that night or rather jesses father did telling us to come get them when we were ready, we said no and have not seen them since............THANK GOD! I got tired it all of them whining about what they could not afford and pawning Jesse off on us everytime they wanted to go somewhere. Anyway Aiden is good, still rotten.............is taking a nap right now which is good, he was out in the heat for awhile, he went with my dad............and came home all woozy from being so tired, gave me a huge kiss and snuggled on my lap and went to sleep..........i love those moments.
Anyway I will post another entry about my crochet. Will also keep up with this Blog.
