#I felt kind of bad #but then again she'll probably remember to text me next time
#tara liveblogs her reactions to the walking dead #THAT WAS VILE #I'm going to need a minute #the walking dead
I watched two episodes of The Walking Dead with the Husband before he left for work this afternoon.
Now I’m in the middle of a third episode by myself.
I make terrible decisions.
#at least it's still daylight #but the husband is on the night shift #so I'm going to need one of you to come hold me and make soothing ocean noises when I can't sleep tonight
I made shepherd’s pie for dinner. After I put on the mashed potato layer, I handed Dictator the spatula, which she very enthusiastically began licking. For a second.
Apparently, she was expecting a little less potato and a little more icing.
It’s possible she declared that “that was the worstest trick ever!” but I was too busy laughing at her indignant little face to be sure.
#it's not my fault she made an assumption about what was on that spatula #but I may never be forgiven nonetheless
Laughing when getting tickled - WTF fun facts
My husband would most definitely agree
Fun fact: I’ve always been extremely ticklish. The last time I got my anxiety in check, I stopped being ticklish (the Husband was so annoyed - who wants to tickle someone who just glares at you instead of laughing). Now that my anxiety is back, I’m super ticklish again.
Bodies and brains are weird.
#I had to look this up: apparently it's basically a fight or flight response to potentially dangerous things touching you #neat #the more you knoooooow #[shooting star image here]
Why must you find fault in awesome shows lol.
Because if I don’t make fun of them, they will terrify me and I already have enough trouble sleeping.
I’m still traumatized by my foray into Supernatural, Will. Let me have this one.
#SHE WAS PINNED TO THE CEILING WILL. BY FIRE. OR SOMETHING. IT WAS TERRIBLE. #bujnik #reply
#...I think this is the end of Walking Dead for me #also possibly quality tv time with the husband if I don't shut up soon #if I don't constantly make fun of it I'll be completely freaked out okay?
Right: The face of a cat who was, up until a moment ago, napping on top of a neatly folded pile of blanket.
Left: The face of a cat who decided to literally burrow under his sleeping brother, effectively kicking him off the blanket so he could make a cat-cave.
Simon: 1; Sam: 0
#cats are assholes #but it's nice to know the blanket has been so well-received
Brad: HEY! Why are you arguing about every thing with us!?
Harper: NO, I NOT ARGUING ABOUT EVERYTHING!
Me *whispering*: we did this, Brad. we made her.
I have this realization regularly.
It’s karma. I’ll admit that I’ve earned it.
#kids are the worst #also occasionally the best
I’ve been thinking of trying out crotchet…seems the in thing..worried it might be confusing though, im crap at knitting?! Blanket looks gorgeous
I’m also crap at knitting. Truly crap. My mother is a master knitter, and I’ve tried to pick it up over the years, but I just don’t have the knack for it.
I decided to try my hand at crocheting last Christmas, and I’ve made a bunch of things that I’m really proud of (check out the little owl lovey below - he’s not perfect, but he’s really cute!).
The blanket I posted took a long time (probably 15 -20 hours total), but it was really easy - literally a three-stitch pattern, over and over and over. I’d recommend finding a pattern for something small and square (yes, those gross washcloths your grandma used to make), since they don’t take forever to make, and you only have to invest in one ball of wool, a crochet hook, and a tapestry needle. And don’t get freaked out by the language - read a few patterns and you’ll get the hang of “2hdc in second sc from hook” in no time.
There are so many great youtube tutorials out there - Try it!
#look deep into the owl's eyes... you are getting sleeepy... buy a hook and some yarn.... #mysunshineandlittlerain #reply #crochet #look at this thing that I made
