Wild Animals

The hearth room in our house looks like this:

(notice the chairs on top of the table and the footstool on top of the chair)

All becase of this:

I guess the next step is to completely eradicate my house of ALL furniture.

Lessons Learned

When your manager tells you about his/her threesome with his/her crack dealer, RUN! run FAST! Find a NEW JOB!

Please folks, learn from the mistakes of others that are not smart enough to figure it out themselves.

What Cool People do on Saturday Nights

Zero style points. They were all sitting down! The drummer I can understand, but the guitars COME ON- let me see you ROCK!

Sorry Mr. Man.

Drama, makeup, bathroom hog, PMS, sassiness (and bossiness), dolls, dress up. Just a few of the pitfalls of having an older sister. Sorry Mr Man.

Don't worry son, I am sure someday you will get her back. When she is 13 pull a tampon out in front of her boyfriend, throw it at her and tell her stop leaving them lay around. She'll be mortified, I promise.

wait no boyfriends when you are 13, how about 18.

Please Bare With Me...

It is embarrassing that I have an MIS degree and for many years did web-based application development. When setting up this blog I took the easy route and used a free template. It is driving me nuts. Over the next few days (maybe weeks!) I am going to do my best to do a few enhancements, so bare with me as I am sure there will be several versions and lots of bugs.

Creative Juices....

Being creative makes me happy. I need to do it more often. Anything creative - plan a party (baby showers are my favorite!), make treats, wrap presents, sewing - anything creative, I am not picky. I have resolved to try and do 1 creative thing a week. If it turns out, I'll share it on here and if not, you’ll never know.

This week it was a shirt for L.

I got the tutorial here. You should check out this woman’s Etsy Shop – she has lots of cute things, my favorite being the messy butterfly pin. Even more admirable is that she is donating 100% of the proceeds to the Cora Paige Playground fund. I must warn you, if you click on the story be prepared to cry and be touched in ways you can’t imagine being touched by strangers. I have thought about this family everyday since I learned of their story almost a month ago. Maybe because my son is only 14 months old and I can’t even imagine. Or maybe because having children has made me a softy. Or maybe just because. Either way, I am sure your heart will ache for them as well.

Looks like I have been missing from the blog world. I would create a missing persons poster, however it seems not only am I missing from the blog world, but I am also missing any pictures of me. I am always behind the camera and I didn't realize to what degree until I went to find a picture for my facebook profile.

Happy Monday.
