Why am I awake?

Yea, I'm up in the middle of the night again. First I just woke up, then I realized I was hot, then I noticed my bladder was full, my stomach started growling and baby started kicking...so I ate a snack and finished making my menu/grocery list for the next week.

I'm glad everyone liked my video. I have since made another one, however it takes a good while to upload them, so I'm not sure exactly when I'll get Tuesday's up, but it'll get there :) In the meantime I'll post my menu, just in case I lose my paper and for anyone who needs some help with their menus, like me!


melon balls, yogurt with granola
bagels with homemade herb cream cheese, fruit
oatmeal, fried eggs and kefir
blender batter pancakes, sausage
scrambled eggs and toast
yogurt and granola, fresh fruit
fried eggs and toast, tomato slices


corndog muffins, cream cheese dip and veggies

other kinds of sandwiches

Thurs- homemade macaroni and cheese, salad, broccoli
Friday- oven fried chicken, mashed potatoes, corn on the cob

I've had some video requests, one to do a tour of my house, which I plan to do once I get caught up on housecleaning. This week has been weird with having Leiah home now and I've been feeling very tired (hmm, wonder why?). So, after I get the baskets of laundry done, the floors cleaned up and my groceries bought and stored, I may try to do it.

Also I was asked to do a sewing video. I certainly plan on doing that one, especially since I need to get cracking on my baby quilt! When I do, I'll be making two dresses at the same time, and show how that's possible. I'm not going to go over the basics of sewing, but I will show how to lay out pattern pieces on fabric and how to construct the dress, put in sleeves, gather the skirt, put in a zipper etc.

Ok, maybe I can nap a little before morning is upon us...

I look forward to your next video! Why do I enjoy those so much? What is it that makes us enjoy watching people doing their everyday, ordinary things? Well, I guess there just encouraging me to keep on keeping on.

Hope you got some sleep and rest!

You know I wondered the same thing. I guess we're just naturally nosy :P Even my husband was glued to my video, and I was like, you see me do this stuff all the time! It's funny because I don't think I'm doing a very good job at all, but everyone is still interested :)

I meant to comment yesterday, but my youngest wanted to nurse. I really enjoyed your video too. I like being able to see what people actually sound like ... plus, you get a better idea (to a degree) of what the person is like in real life ... and, I'm probably a tad nosy lol
