Monday, That baby!

 When ever Schmills gets disgusted with how much work Kelsa is he exclaims, "That baby!"  So now all of us are doing it.  She was a pill yesterday and last night.  We rocked, and bounced and could not get her to sleep for more than 1/2 an hour.  Everyone was exhausted.  Daughter went to sleep in our bed about 6 in the evening.  Hubs slept in his Sunday clothes on the sofa in the family room.  I took the baby from Nate about 9:50 and told him to go to bed as he had to get up at 5 to go to work.  Then it was Hubs and I.  I finally got her to go to sleep about 10:15 and stuck her between daughter and I in our King size bed.  She slept for 4 hours.  Daughter was up a little after 2 to pump and I kept Kelsa until about 5, just after Nate left for work.  Then I woke up Hubs and daughter went to spare room and hubs and I went to bed.  So daughter and Nate got some good sleep. Hubs and I not so much.  That baby!

Here are some pictures from the Native American store I am sewing things for.

We live just off the Nez Perce Indian reservation.  The Nez Perce were instrumental in saving Lewis and Clark.

Here is one of the Louis Vitton skirts I made up for the store. I will make more as I have time.  Ha!

I had a big ham dinner yesterday and the kids were very happy.  We boned the Ham and are going to make bean soup for dinner.  I was low on navy beans (another storage problem)  So Hubs and I ran to three places before I found a price I would pay. We were able to get 4 huge packages of meat off the ham plus enough for a huge pot of soup.  I made a double batch of corn bread and we can have that with it.  It was a good ham also.  Sometimes they can be so salty.  Nate was excited about fresh ham sandwiches in his lunch this week. 

The kids floors are done except for edging and now they have to fumigate the house, so they will be with us one more day I think. I can't wait to see the floors and to start helping daughter get that house out together.  I know it is stressing her out.  Heck it is stressing me out to have her stressed out.

I have a busy week ahead with two wedding dresses to get out and army dress blues, Salvation army dress blues, and sport coats to downsize (which is hard) also have several pairs of pants to hem and alter.  One of my brides is coming at 4 today so I need to get her dress ready for a fitting.

I tried to help Lil sis for a few short hours both Saturday and yesterday.  I took 10 large bags of things to good will yesterday.  It is amazing how much we have downsized and it still looks like we have not touched the place.  We have not even gotten to the basement.  That basement is full and I can't even think about it.

Anyway here is to a good week.  No more pressure from the wedding that shall not be named.

Have a great and productive day staying positive while you are in the negative.



  1. So, how is that Louis Vitton? That must be a very interesting store in which to shop or look. Babies get out of sort like we do, and guessing why is sooo hard. Hopefully, she just knew she was not home.

  2. Wow, you are talented. I'm understanding that Louis Vitton skirt you creatively embellished it. Good idea!

  3. Thank you for sharing the Native American store photos. I was seriously intrigued by it.
    The skirt is not only a cool skirt, but it is also styled so well on the mannequin.
    I know your daughter will be happy to have things done so they can start making it theirs.

    1. I can't wait to start on her house it is such a mess.

  4. Neat store. I may be the only one who liked the wedding not to be named clothes. LOL
    It is amazing how much you can get rid and it still looks the same. Going through it now.
    Have a great week.

  5. What an interesting store. I love how you embellished that skirt.

    God bless.

  6. have you tried swaddling the baby? I know the Amish use it a lot when they have one that doesn't sleep unless held.

  7. My grandson was like that and turned out he wasnt getting the milk he needed had a stomach issue had to have feeding tube at 4 months today is very healhtybaby. May be more then colic or out of sorts.

    1. I think it was she just needed to poop, or was being a poop.
