Sick. >_<"

Ugh.... I hate getting sick. >_<"

Started sneezing and feeling like crap on monday.
Mimi came home from daddy's house with a stuffy nose and we are both sick.

I think we got it from Bub. He was all stuffy and sneezing and coughing this past weekend. :(

There's stuff I wanna do around here (laundry, sewing, run errands), but my body feels too tired to do anything.

I don't think I'm going to Bible Study tonight. :(

{Made by Me} Mondays

[Made by Me] Monday - Totoro...?

So, I was looking online at Amigurumi's on flickr (I LOVE these!) and Mimi saw one of Totoro.
She immediately said, "Ooohh Totoro! I want that! Mommy can you make that for me?"! I told her I didn't have that color fabric. Then she started to beg........O-M-G. Seriously?
I finally gave in and made one for her. He's not grey and kinda crooked, but she loves him.
As long as she's happy, right? >_<

Soccer Saturdays

Today Bub's team (Black Tigers) challenged his classmates team (Silver Dragons). He had a little trouble focusing because his classmate from the other team kept on talking to him and acting silly. He did pretty good though. Got a few kicks in.
It was a very close game. In the end, Bub's team won. 4 - 3! :)

Go Black Tigers!

After the game I took the kids to Wally World. Daddy & Papa gave them money so they wanted to buy a toy.
Spoiled Kids I tell you..... >_<

Now we're at home. Waiting for my mom to finish work, then we're gonna meet her at Ala Moana. She's gonna do her nails and I'm gonna get a lil' waxing done. Fotta keep the eyebrows perty. LOL! >_<

Free Day

Today I got to relax a bit and clean house.

Finally got to fold the baskets of clothes that was just sitting on the living room floor. (I hate folding clothes, lol.)

I swear, the kids and I have too much clothes! The dirty pile just seems to keep growing no matter how much loads I wash! >_<"

I think it's time to do a little spring cleaning..... Out with the old, No more new! LOL! At least for awhile.

Bub has a 4 day weekend. That means more time with mommy. :)

He has a soccer game on saturday and I wanna take the kids to the zoo maybe on sunday, so hopefully the weathers perks up. It's been extremely windy and rainy on and off this past week or so. Junk. >_<

[Made By Me] Monday - Onigiri Keychain

I was inpired by an Owl Keychain I received from one of my swaps on swap-bot, so I decided to try and make one myself.

It didn't come out as nice as I would have liked, but it's still cute. I think I should have used a more sturdy fabric. >_<

As you can see, my key is a bit to HUGE for it. LOL!

As you know (or should know), there are "LOVE JAPAN" items in my Etsy shop that you can purchase and 100% of the proceeds will go to help those who were devestated from the earthquake and tsunami in Japan. I also have a few of my regular items, and 50% of the proceeds will go to help them.

My items have been featured in a bunch of treasury lists on Etsy (too many to list), and a couple of blogs.

Are you doing anything special to donate or help in this time of need? If you are, I'd like to hear about it.

[Made by Me] Monday - Coin Purses & a Bat Zombie

Tonight I made a bunch of coin purses.

Made a few "Love Japan" coin purses for the Etsy shop. The letters didn't come out how I wanted them to, but I guess it adds a grungy look to it.

I also made coin purses for Bub and Mimi. They collect loose change they find around the house and G-Ma told them to ask mommy to make coin purses for them. So I did. :P

Whenever I sew, the kids always ask me to make them something. So tonight I told Bub to draw something and I would try and make it. So he did. He drew a "Bat Zombie". And mommy had to create it. LOL! >_< came out pretty good. The wings are a little big though. =/

Mimi wants a kangaroo. Hmmm.....we'll see how that turns out. O_o


Here is Mimi's Kangaroo. It turned out......cute. :P

8.9 Japan Earthquake & Tsunami

What a night/morning. >_<"

Everyone here in hawaii was on alert from the tsunami warning when an 8.9 magnitude earthquake struck of the east coast of Japan.

Long lines of cars trying to fill their vehicles with gas and people rushing to buy water and other necessities.

First wave hit Hawaii a little after 3am, but there was no huge wave action. Just water receeding and coming back in. At the Diamond Head lookout, the reef was exsposed as fas as 100 yards. Some part of Hawaii were hit the most. Like Maui and the Big Island.

The "All Clear" has been given for Hawaii a little over an hour ago. But cautioning all beach-goers to stay out of the water due to unpredictable wave action.

I just thank God that it wasn't worse, but I am praying for those people in Japan, who took it the hardest. :(

Lazy day....

Ugh....the house is a mess. Again. >_<"
After cleaning last week, the livingroom stayed clean for about 1 or 2 days before hurricane Mimi left a huge mess.
It is never ending.

I'm too lazy to clean today. Maybe tomorrow. (O_o)

What I really wanna do is SEW. But what??? I have no freakin' clue!
I've been stuck in a sewing rut for a long time. I need help! >_<"

Does anyone have any NEW cool ideas? Any tutorials? Anything?

[Made by Me] Monday - Baby Bag

My cousin's dad asked me if I could make a baby bag for his neice who is expecting this month.

They're having a boy and naming him, Noah. :)

The bag came out pretty good. I make regular tote bags, so this was a little different. I added a pocket on the outside, and there is a flat pocket and an elastic pocket on the inside. It's very spacious and can hold a ton of stuff. Great for a new mother!

How was everyone's friday?

My friday was spent at home. Folded the basket of clothes from the dyrer...played and took a nap with Mimi. :P

It was raining off and on today. It was storming last night! Strong wind and huge drops of rain woke us up around 3:30am. I didn't go back to sleep until after 4am. Ugh... >_<"

The Ewa side of the island didn't have power today after 15 utility poles crashed down early this morning, and some parts still don't. What makes everything worse is that HECO (Hawaiian Electric Company) workers went on strike today knowing there are hundreds of people without electricity. >_<"

I feel bad for the people who are suffering because of this and I just thank God that we still have power over here.

I pray tomorrows weather is all sunshine because Bub has a soccer game in the morning. I think he'll be disappointed if his game is canceled. We'll see......(fingers crossed).

The Mystery Giveaway winner will be announced sometime tomorrow!! :D

Spick & Span

Whoohoo! I got to clean today! LOL! Cleaned the livingroom, vaccumed, washed dishes, folded laundry & cooked dinner! Phew.....I'm tired.

The life of a SAHM. >_<

Today's laundry went from this...

To this...all folded and ready to be hung up in the closet.

I still have another load in the dryer waiting to be folded.........ugh. It never ends. lol!

I've been cooking dinner for the past few days. Better than going out to eat and spending money. Right?
Well, tonight I made Shrimp Curry. Yum!! :)


Final Product. Dinner is served.

Wow.....the rain is just pouring down right now. Better go shut the windows. >_<

Hump Day

Today wasn't a very productive day.........for cleaning. Kids toys all over the livingroom floor....laundry not done. Ugh. >_<"

I think tomorrow will be a better day to clean. Daddy is picking Mimi up in the morning. That means mommy can clean without anyone bugging me or making MORE mess while I try and clean up the mess we already have! Then there's the laundry and I can finally fold that basket of clothes that's been sitting by the bed. lol!

On the other hand, I put together a few tags and wishlist packages for some ladies on SB.
No moolah to send it out tomorrow, so I'm just gonna have to wait until monday.
I hope they like it. :)

Tonight I went to bible study and ended up taking Mimi with me. It wasn't too bad because it was a small group. She's never come with me before and in the end she sorta warmed up to everyone. :)
