Happy and sad,
Yay, we are back with working internet and you have all been pretty busy. My Bloglines list showed almost 300 posts unread. Luckily I've had more than time to catch up with everyone, I didn't leave comments or I'd still be reading blogs. LOL!

I am so proud to show off the fairy!!! :) Her hat is finally done, which means I can start a new color. I've had enough of the pale purple, now onto dark purple for the boots! LOL! I think I have a almost 50% of the piece done, not really sure though, the clouds will take forever to be done. Can't say I am eager to start them... The colors in the picture are off, the top shows the closest what the true colors are, the bottom, I'm not sure what happened there. I find it pretty difficult to take picture of my cross stitching.

I need to get this out, it's about Little Monkey's soccer game last night. We have all seen parents over react over sports right? Well it's sad to see when it involves a game of soccer played by 5 year olds. This dad was screaming his head off to the opposite team that my son played against. At one time Big Fox just belched at his: "Hey, just let the kids play!". The guy turned beet red and walked right up to Big Fox. I tried to calm him down but once he stood up it was confrontation time. I tried to get my word in but that father was just sooo mad. Finally another dad (from our team) came closer and just told the evil father that this is a game for the 5 year old kids to have fun. The "rules" can be bent a bit when all they want is a chance to kick the ball. We don't mind that much that they sometimes keep on playing even if the ball is crossing over the side lines. Hey, the kids are so into it running and having fun, who really cares?

At each game, us proud parents of the Pumpkins never know exactly who won, why? We don't care! We high five our kids when they make a goal, and we praise them for a good game. That's all! We are the most relaxed parents of the 4 teams. Next week though, let me say that I will be avoiding the Grasshopers team, I prefer no more confrontations until the end of the season. Our team still has 4 games against them and I'll be sitting farther away and biting my tongue at each game. This dad, we hear him scream at every single game, we hear him even when your kids aren't playing his team. It's sad and he sure lost the focus on this being a game for the kids to enjoy themselves. Luckily, the ball kept on rolling so the kids never really noticed the confrontation but I'd prefer it never happened nonetheless. Once we got home, it took me an hour for my heart to stop racing like crazy. Even know a day later, I still feel stressed over what happened and even worst, over what could've happened if another dad hadn't come and calmed down the evil dad. I mean, what's the use in punching another kid's father in the face? This isn't boxing...

Back to stitching, my heart is starting the race again...

Uh oh...
Calling out an SOS!

Computer down, limited access, no stitching progress at all. We've been spending family time outside, Big Fox has had a few days off. Water heater decided to go on strike for a day after a huge storm. Bought all school supplies for both kids, even splurged in some very much needed new clothes for me.

I repeat computer down, help me! LOL!

Hope to be back soon and get back to stitching but family time has been great too! I have missed reading blogs and will have a ton to catch up! Until then enjoy the warm summer days! :) I miss you...
