BEE book, things to do, and other randomness

 What is Random Tuesday? Check out the UnMom...

So I can't find my son's BEE book. That is the "Bring Everything Everyday" book that is pretty much the most important thing in his backpack. Notes to teacher, daily schedule... And the worst part? I lost it. I took it out to fill with snacks and books for his day at the Farmer's Market with me. I took out the Holy Grail of teacher/parent communication that has his little homework calendar and important numbers and alphabet practice sheets... I took it out, put it on the floor in some random spot by some toys, came home that afternoon from the market, and it is nowhere to be seen.  I asked the husband, and he can't remember seeing it.

Ugh.

So now I have officially put the first black spot on Johnny's academic career. I wrote a note to teacher, and offered to come in and wash her chalkboards if I can get a new one...

I need to finish cleaning my craft room. I have an entire room devoted to craftage, yet I still am dragging my goods downstairs to the kitchen.  Mostly because my craft room is a mess. And the TV lives down here, and how can I watch Supernatural while I craft if there is no tv?

Oh, that reminds me - I need to go to the library and get the next disks on DVD...

I have a day of bobbin winding, bread making, and sewing planned. I have one more Farmer's Market, then that season is over, and a few crafty shows right after that, so I need to do some serious restocking of goods. Halloween is fast approaching, and I have about 487 ideas of spooky things to make, but by the time I actually make them, it will be past the witching hour.   Being a crafty vendor/artisan is confusing, seasonally speaking. You have to be at least 6 months ahead of your seasons... Crap! That means I should really be making stockings and other wintry goodies...

I should be making Halloween costumes, but Johnny said he wants to dress up "just as a boy." Easy enough, yes, but I have a sneaking suspicion that when Halloween is here, he is going to want to actually be something other than "just a boy" and I will have no time to create it, and whatever it is will be sold out....

Ok, all done being random... although writing this feels natural, which is kind of scary because of the random way my mind actually works... I should see what time the library opens. Of course my plates on the van are expired (since 2009) and I am starting to get paranoid I am going to get pulled over (again).

But that is another random story for another day...

Look up high for the notebook. Whenever I can't find something, for some reason it's high (out of the way) on a shelf, on a mantle or cabinet.

I am in the middle of building my craft/sewing room, now that 23 year old is on his own. Hubby just installed a cable wire in there so I can watch TV. I can't wait for it to be finished. Looking for shelving now.

I'm with Ellie, look somewhere "safe", like where the boys couldn't reach it on their own.

I'm always a season behind on the crafts, but I do them anyway so that I'll have them for next year. Sad, I know.

The minute you get a new book, the old one will turn up--it's part of Murphy's law.
I'm trying to get motivated to scrap book again--after hunting season Nick gets kid duty and I get to scrap book and start catching up. A TV will be necessary to help me get stuff done. I like the background noise.
