Happy Mommy’s Day ~WIR & TSP

Posted May 10, 2015 by Michelle in Uncategorized / 17 Comments

WIR vectorstock_43821-1-1Week in READ-view is a post I have posted on Sundays telling you what I have been up to this week and what I read or am reading. The Sunday Post is a meme sponsored by the awesome Kimba at the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up for the week on our blog.

Real Life & Blog News:

Untitled-1Going to breakfast this morning to celebrate mom’s day with my mom and then going to visit my nanny. So I might not be around in the morning but I plan to spend theΒ  rest of the day doing what I love most, visiting, commenting, setting up posts and reading. πŸ™‚

However, I might not be able to move anyway because I spent all day Saturday setting up my garden and have some great pictures to share for next weeks “How does my garden grow?” post. I am seriouslyΒ  out of shape and hurt in places I didn’t even think could hurt but it looks very nice and I can’t wait for the yummy veggies and herbs to grow.

So BIG news! I did everything ass backwards but My Limabean Designs is now OPEN FOR BUSINESS. I still have a LOT to do with it (like register the name) but at of right now I can start taking requests for quotes. I have to talk with the lawyer my sister works for and my dad’s accountant to make sure everything is in place but for now I at least can start doing a few things and I was so excited, I jumped the gun in getting it out but I was very excited and don’t think I will get a lot of request now but I hope I will soon. I have a Facebook Page so feel free to give it a like πŸ™‚ I will be posting all the stuff I do and giving updates on discounts and sales that I might haveΒ  throughout the year. Had to change the name to My Limabean Designs instead of Limabean Designs because believe it or not someone already had it and even though it’s in another country and spelled different I didn’t want to take the chance and steal it from anyone so I changed mine a little, once I register it I am hoping it will go ok or I might have to change it again (see ass backwards) I need to make a contract and fix my Terms of Service but this is all new to me so I do hope by the end of the year all the i’s will be dotted and the t’s will be crossed πŸ™‚

Other than that things have been ok, still having issues with my son but we are still working on adjusting his meds. At the moment he is very mean and rude, we are not sure if that is a side effect of his meds but his allergies are really bad and that might be making him a little more short-tempered than normal since he’s so uncomfortable. It seems his impulses are out of control and his sensory is on over drive but Ryan is made up of so many layers we never know what he is going to do once the meds kick in. He has been very aggressive with his sister and the dog so I have to watch him very closely. Either way we will figure it out, we always do πŸ™‚

Last Week on the Blog:

This Week on the Blog:

This is a quiet week as I am still working on a lot of posts that are in drafts, it’s been hard to sit and do much since Ryan has been like a roller coaster and it’s hard to stay focused while I watch him.

      My dad is going to help me with it I hope, since I tend to second guess myself all the time he is hesitant to help me sometimes thinking its a phase but this is something I have been wanting to do for a very long time and at 41 I think I better start now if I really want to do this πŸ™‚

  3. Happy Mother’s Day!! I hope you had a great day with your family! I hope everything with your son works out!

    The Wright Brother won!! That’s what I voted for so I can’t wait to see what you think about it. I haven’t read her books yet but this one stood out from the other selections.

    I can’t wait for COYER this summer!! The scavenger hunt sounds like a lot of fun!

    Have a great week!!

  5. Happy mother’s day! We’re visiting my boyfriend’s parents today and I send my mom a gift card as she lives too far away to visit for a few hours. I can’t wait to seee your next Garden posts, I don’t have a garden so it’s fun to see your updates.

    And I am so exicted for your design business! I hope you get some clients soon. The first year is the hardest, after that it onyl becoems easier. And it’s good you already have done a lot of design which you can show off.

    It sounds hard going thorugh all that with your soon, I hope things improve soon with his new meds!

    And I can’t wait to hear what you have planned for Summer Coyer! I lvoe Coyer and it already feels so long ago the last one, so i am really looking forward to this one. I hope you have a great week!

    • Thank you πŸ™‚
      I am so excited about my garden, it came out very nice I am hoping for lots of veggies πŸ™‚

      Thank you, The first year with be all trial and error. I still have the behind the scenes stuff to finish but the step to put it out would never happen if I did that first. This is like a push to get it done now!

      He has his issues but I love him so much and just want him to be comfortable and happy.

      Summer COYER is going to be GREAT!!! I am so happy it is so successful and you all love it makes it even more fun to put together πŸ™‚

  6. Happy Mothers Day! Hope you have a great day, and congrats on Limabean Designs. Wishing you all the success in the world with it. Hope you have a great week- and that APP video was hilarious. I was laughing through the whole thing. πŸ™‚

    Cute dog!

  7. I hope you’ll have a nice breakfast with your mom, and visit with your nanny! And poor Ryan (and the rest of you, too) it must be exhausting to take meds, and then not have them work exactly the way they’re supposed to. I’ll continue to send healing, calming thoughts his way.

    Hook’s Revenge looks good! My youngest daughter is on a Tinker Bell kick these days… and of course, Captain Hook is also included in some of her adventures.

    Have a fantastic week ahead, Michelle. Happy reading.

    • Thanks Lexxie,

      The first book is sooooo cute. This is the second one but it’s all about Captain Hooks daughter. If shes a reader she might enjoy it. I never read the Pixie Hollow books, always wanted to. I hope my daughter will be interested in stuff like that when shes big enough to read.

      Thanks for stopping by Lexxie!
