Taxes done but MIL saga continues

Well, we got our taxes done. We are getting some back but not as much as we were expecting. I guess it could be worse, we could be paying in. Just glad they are done.

MIL dog is still not doing good at all. MIL is in denial that the dog is beyond help. Vet says that the dog won't eat and isn't using the bathroom. He told MIL that the dog is in kidney failure and there is nothing more he can do for the dog. But MIL won't give up and just let the dog go. She has convinced herself that the dog only has a bad kidney infection and wants the vet to keep trying to make her better. I can understand about not wanting to let go. The dog is over 14yrs old and has a bad back, congestive heart failure, bad back legs, and hardly any teeth left. This dog has been her companion thru thick and thin. It is all she has left in this life(so she says). Like she doesn't have a son, DIL, and 2 granddaughters to live for. She has run everyone else off by being mean, lying, and causing problems between family members.

well DH will be home soon and I haven't gotten anything out for supper tonite. I am in a funk when it comes to cooking. I hate having the same ol' same ol' all the time. Time to get out the cook books and start looking.

until later!!!!

Last 2 days haven't been good......

Problems with MIL and doing taxes.......ENOUGH SAID!!!!!!!

Mix in kids that constantly are fighting, picking and bugging each other, and I am trying to come up with a name for my new shop and get things going with it.

I looked up the name Fanciful Things and someone already has it, but doesn't have anything listed. They set up shop in 2008 and doesn't look like they have done anything with it. This hit me wrong yesterday, I wanted to scream.....I REALLY like the name Fanciful Things. Now I am thinking of a few other names.....
Fanciful Crochet (which won't work if I ever want to add things that aren't crocheted)
Fanciful Goods (ehh, is okay i guess)
Fanciful Creations (liking this one more and more)

I like the name Fanciful but I don't know what to put with it. UUGGGHHH!!!!!

Someone help me!!!!!! LOL

I am still here.....

Just been busy...... REAL busy. Crocheting my little hands to death. I just need to get the doilies blocked out and listed in my new etsy store. I just need to think of a name for my store. Any suggestions????? I have no idea. I am going to get about 10-15 things crocheted and then I will open my store.

I have thought about "Fanciful Things" for a name for my store. I don't know what do you think?
Let me know.......

Thinking about a lot of things......

Here lately alot has been on my mind. The economy, my family, my DH, his job, how we are going to buy groceries with money we don't have. DH's hours have been cut to no more than 40hrs/wk but no less than 32hrs/wk so that he doesn't lose his benefits. I would really like to start selling my crocheted doilies and actually make money at it.

My mom and dad and possibly my sister are coming to visit this weekend. I am excited for them to come. I haven't seen them since Christmas.

I am hoping to start up a new store in a few weeks to a month. I will be selling my doilies that I have been making. I just need a name for my shop. I am thinking really hard about this and can't come up with any catchy name. I have a few but not really keen on them. Anyone have any suggestions???

Another thing I was thinking about doing is changing my blog name and possibly the address too. I will let you all know what I decide. I am hoping that I can change both and not lose those of you that are following me.

Until next time,
