i've been a lousy blogger...

this week. i don't think i've gone this long without blogging in a while. so, my week:

school, car inspection (failed, small problem, fixed, ran out of stickers), oil change (pain in the butt to change the oil in a VW in the land of fords, dodges, and chevys), made cookies, made lunches, made a really yummy sweet & sour pork from scratch, watched the convention (although there really isn't a need to--kind of a no-brainer for me), worked on a website, made a new etsy item, watched LOST, read books/did homework with mich, chased owen around, soccer, in-laws, laundry, cleaning...typical week.

oh, and at the oil change place, the lady overheard my conversation about my vehicle's failure and informed me that there was a "place" in ft. worth where i could "get an inspection sticker without doing the inspection"...nice...she said, "just go (here) and talk to the mexican guy and he'll give you one for $75. that way you won't have to fix whatever is wrong with your car." um, thanks lady. can you say call police and give them an anonymous tip? seriously, that's just WRONG!!! and it bugs the ever-living crap out of me that people do that while i sit here, pay $40 and fail a damn inspection with a car that's only 3 years old. ARrrRRRGHGHHHH!!!!

makes me mad. anyway, i made these while owen napped and i watched LOST. i'm starting at episode 1 (again) to prepare myself for the premier in jan or feb. i love the buttons on here. found a 'vintage bag o' buttons'...they're really pretty, much like Jack. ;)

i'm about to make more now as owen has just started his nap.

later kids and have a good weekend.

Love what you have done with the buttons Karen.

That would so bug me too about the lady with the car issues.

Just a typical week...right? At least you had a little Jack to make you smile. (Not J. D !) He is H-O-T! I LOVE me some 'Lost' :-)
