Enough with the holiday already.... time to get to work!

I've been feeling guilty lately. Something that doesn't happen often for me.

But, I have been feeling guilty for neglecting my Saucy Frocks lately.

So, today I will be sewing up a storm to get some aprons posted online for the holidays.

And to get a few orders completed.

And to see if I even remember how to sew, it's been so long!

So, if you try to reach me and are not successful, I will be burried under a pile of apron fabric in my basement.

So long, world.

High National Debt... hurry, turn off all the lights!!!!

My son learned about the national debt today. He came home and pulled up a web site that counts all the national debt and people and gold amounts and many more stats. Then he proceeded to explain them all to me.

Suddenly, my son wasn't my little 9 year old anymore. He was talking about concepts I had no idea what they meant! He sounded so smart and... well..... responsible!

So, he's gone around the house and turned out all the lights and is asking that we try not to spend any more money.

I wonder if that number at the bottom of the national debt calculator will slow down a bit if I stop spending.

I'd better start repenting!!!

Seems there's a plague at our home.

- Hornets nesting in the walls
- mice in the ceiling
- clogged sewer pipe
- unfinished remodeling projects

Wait.... what was that last thing? Oh, scratch that... not really a plague, more of something plaguing ME!!!

Sooo.... I think with all this going on maybe I'd better do some repenting!

What kind of name is that???

There are some things I just hate to spend money on.
-Nylons.... they always seem to get a snag about 5 minutes after I've put them on. (Therefore, I've stopped wearing them at all! Good solution! Except, I found out that nylons are "back in" again.... great.)
-Socks for the boy (he always "runs" a hole in them. Takes after his mom who hates to wear shoes!)
-dog medication- (super expensive, no insurance coverage, I have to coax him with meat to get him to eat it.)
-store-bought cupcakes (the school won't let me make home-made even though mine are waaaaaay better!)
- car parts- (cars should just run... you know, without having to replace seemingly unimportant parts)
-printer ink (possibly the most expensive liquid in the history of humanity, right?)
and finally, the reason for my post today,

-Seriously expensive for the good kind,
-no one ever sees it,
-none are ever very comfortable, no matter HOW comfortable they claim to be. (How can a thick heavy wire EVER be comfortable?)
-Did I mention they are expensive???

I bought 2 yesterday, NOT on sale, and it came to $50! I can buy a cute pair of shoes with that kind of money, or a few great shirts, or 5 bottles of various hair colors to match  my every whim! But to plunk down that kind of money on something so.... so.... necessary, true... but..... boring!

And to top it all off, I got it off a website called, get this: "A Fresh Pair".

Yep. I thought it was a joke. It probably is. Nevertheless, they happily took my money, and in a week I, too, will have a "fresh pair".

And a seriously deflated bank account.  *sigh*

Halloween 2010

Well, the hard work paid off:  Prince of Persia costume, 2010!!!!

I can't believe how much work went into this costume. I mean, it's really just a vest and some arm bands, right???  Well, the kid loved it! I caught him looking at himself in the mirror several times, flexing his muscles and "posing" as Prince of Persia, so it must have been a hit!

Here's some more pictures of Halloween:

This is my hubby going as "himself, if he'd not been plagued with male patterned baldness":
Here are our pumkins: (Mine is the girly skull, of course, and the guys did a flaming dragon.)

And, we couldn't go without dressing up the dog. I mean, he was feeling so left out! So, I gave him a toupe, and he loved it! Notice his smile?

Happy Halloween 2010!!!!
