is it spring yet?

I am so done with the snow.  Really done.  I want to put the boots away for good and wear sandles and skirts.  

Not to mention I want to clean.  Really clean. Like if someone comes in as asks me for something, I will ignore them, then yell and throw something at them.  I get in those moods of Manic Cleaning.  Tim's a smart guy and leaves me alone.  I love him for that.  The kid and the cats don't get it.

Its time to purge.

Tooth # 2

Tooth # 2 came out finally on Saturday January 17th. This one I had to pull out. She was brushing them before bed and said "Mom, why is my tooth and gum blue?". Yeah Blue. The gum was bleeding and the blood was pooling underneath the tooth. It had to go. She's getting so big.

This weekend I got in the mail a pattern for 18 inch doll clothes. I flat out refuse to pay $30 for a dress for a doll when I won't pay that much for me. I have a bunch of scrap fabric and I know where to get half a yard pretty cheap. All I needed was a good pattern. Well I have 3 packs of patterns now.

This one was a simple peasant dress and we opted for a Valentine pattern (its what I had). Snaps in the back and some lovely lace from Aunt Sammy (Thanks Sam! you saved the day!). Its outfit # 2 that I've made and I think it came out just fine.

The kid has requests for more so expect some more American Girl shots. oh joy...

"Yes we can"

That statement echos today on every news channel. Today is a long awaited day. A new beginning. Barack Obama becomes the 44th president of the US.

I'm sure the news channels will have coverage and Twitter and Facebook will be alive with comments.

All I can say to Mr. Obama is "Good Luck Mr. President."

way cold...

I don't mind the winter. Its the cold that kills me. Its 7 degrees and feels like -13. So we have a "snow" day today and they are off on Monday. Its been a morning of Doctor Who and the Addams family.

My kid is strange. But I love her

Back to work. Calls await....

Welcome 2009

We were fortunate enough to have Tim's niece babysit the kid last night so we were able to go out to party. Yes. An adult party. with booze. and music. WOOHOO! Tim's sister and girlfriend have a huge party every year and I missed last year. Some unexpected friends made an appearance as well which made the night even better.

My plans for this year? I have no idea. None. Plans for today. Coffee. Movies on the couch and laundry. Fun day.

Happy New year all.
