Due to my not knowing what Roweyn should be for Halloween and finally figuring it out a week ago, only to be way too late to buy anything, I now have to make her costume by Friday. *Takes deep breath* Woo that was a mouthful. I REALLY want her to be an owl.
So my plan is to somehow knit a hat, glue ears, eyes and a beak onto it, then buy a long sleeved onsie and buy multi colored fabric, cut it out into feathers and glue it to the onsie. HOPING I am going to have time to do this cause the rest of my week looks like this:
Tomorrow, cutting a friends hair, unpacking from trip and doing laundry. Wed, driving to Truckee to meet my brother to pick up my dog who has been with him for a week now, Imisshersomuch! Thurs go to play group or skip and go to diaper shop then color a client's hair at the salon. Then somehow miraculously have time in between all of that to get Roweyn's costume done by Friday morning so I can take her to the kiddy trick or treating in Downtown GV.
Am I crazy or what? Oh and then if I can't go to the diaper shop Thurs, then I have to go Fri after trick or treating, then Sat I am working there, Sun finally a day off, and then Mon back to the diaper shop to work!
Hence the name Nightmare Week. No sleep for me anytime soon! Have I mentioned that my daughter is trying to get over a cold? Yeah, its nuts. My sister is now coming down with it. If I get sick this week, I will FREAK!
So if this whole making a costume thing actually works I will post how i did it. Hmm, really should be going to bed now, but gotta catch up on emails and comp. stuff! Boo!

That's from a song I used to love a couple years ago and I swear whenever there's a friday night and I'm not doing anything it ends up creeping into my head.
I have a day off tomorrow and am pretty stoked to just be able to hang with Roweyn. I'm sure most of the day is going to end up being housework and cleaning but the fact that I'm spending it with her makes it okay.
I've never been big on always cleaning up after myself and yes there are times when I forget, but I have gotten better and have kinda come to like it. The weird thing is, I am really good at cleaning up after Roweyn, well for the most part. I actually enjoy doing her laundry, folding cloth diapers and picking up her toys, weird I know.
I guess it makes me feel domesticated and like I'm actually doing something a normal housewife would do or even just an adult for that matter. It's really hard for me to feel like an adult while living with family. I feel like I did when I was a teen. Of course there are differences, like no rules, paying for as much as I can, etc, but it's hard for me to feel like I have my own stuff to take care of. It may be my home, but it's my Mother's House, and I still have to respect her wishes for her house. But don't get me wrong, I am so appreciative that I have a beautiful house to live in and a wonderful mother that takes care of my daughter for me while I work. I just have to remember that I am doing this so that at some point, I will have enough money to be on my own with Roweyn. She is my first priority and by far, this is the best place for both of us, I just have to remind myself constantly that I am an adult even when there are days when I feel the complete opposite of that.
I am headed to bed, I hope ya'll have a wonderful rest of your night and a great weekend!

First up is just a short one of Roweyn army crawling when she was really starting to get the hang of it at 7.5 months old.
