Giving Notice

I'm sick and tired of this cold weather in Atlanta. I know there are worse weather problems in the country now but I am cold. Last weekend was such a teaser at 60 degrees (and I was still cold). I need a day of 74 please. Now.

Baby Girl Turns 3

Just an update to show how big my girl is getting. She is talking and throwing her attitude around pretty good these days. Third Child = I bought her an ice cream today to stop a tantrum (it worked). She said "if I don't eat it it melts on the floor and if I get sick I frow it up on the floor." I like the way she thinks. She also asked me if I like chocolate or "villa". We were at the "Chick-a-ful-a" in case you were wondering.

Summer Time

Still here. Making it through the end of summer which will officially end in two weeks when the kids go back to school. Not looking forward to their homework but can't wait for a routine with them. I think. The early mornings will not be fun.

Lighting Inspiration that is. Nothing that will make you move away from the computer, unfortunately.

Kristin just reminded me on Facebook that I actually have a blog! I love her for that.

I couldn't easily find a picture I wanted to post until I came to this. It is what I want for my kitchen but totally doesn't go. The good news is that it is only half the price of the kitchen sink I want. The bad news is it is half the price of the kitchen sink I want. I put my island pendant light obsession off for about 5 weeks and now I am back at it. I can NOT find what I want (that looks decent and doesn't cost a fortune). I took the light down that I had and have nothing at the moment. I actually like having nothing (not so much the gaping hole in the ceiling). You would have to see how ugly the other light was to appreciate that. Are there pretty insignificant things in your home that just BUG you? For my husband it is our kitchen sink. I have heard him talk about how awful it is for 10 years. It was the light fixture over my island for me. I can breathe easier now that it is in Salvation Army Heaven.

I immediately feel bad after writing something like this when there are such bigger problems in the world and in my own community. This problem doesn't stress me out as much as the other stuff so it is where I tend to focus too much attention. Ignorance is bliss?

Not about my kids

It is actually the hubs. Can you tell he is 2 stories in the air?

I'm a very bad blogger. Part of my charm. Here is the 16x20 gallery wrap canvas I just ordered of my kids. I have titled it:

I'm the KING OF THE WORLD, I don't care who you think you're the king of, and I know you are the king but just pay attention to me, dang it!

Out of 1,645 shots I took of my kids on this particular morning, this might be the only one that the princess did not scream "NO, I NOT!" with every reasonable request. So, I must blow it up on the wall just for that reason alone.

Ohhhh, we have come so far. Just look where we were 2.5 years ago when she wasn't able to say "NO, I NOT" (although she must have been thinking it).

Who cares about the parts of a plant?

This was hanging under a magnet on my door to the garage (because my fridge isn't metal). It was there for a long time. I couldn't figure out who did it. The Little Guy doesn't write that well and the Big Guy can do better than that. They both finally told me (after probing) that neither did it - the Little Guy just picked it up in carpool. Do they think I don't have enough crap around my house without some other kid's flower?

Not the best post, I know. It is all I've got tonight. Too weirded out by the Bachelor.

N*** by the Fire

We have finally arrived to the place that I like to call "naked baby dolls". They are everywhere and I don't know why they can't have clothes on. Baby girl is as guilty as the boys. She sometimes fakes us out and acts like she might put their clothes back on and then...throws a fit. Well, she kind of throws a fit with everything so maybe that doesn't matter?

I'll let you know when we get to cut baby doll hair and headless baby dolls. (One thing at a time.)

* I had to edit this post because of the weirdos searching for sicko stuff landing here. If that happens to be you then you should be ashamed of yourself, sicko!

Still enjoying the goods

Valentines...just part of the stretch between Halloween and Easter that keeps me fat.

Another snow day in Georgia

February 13th: It was beautiful while it lasted. About 3 hours after this picture most of it had melted. My Magnolia tree must have been so glad. It couldn't handle the weight of it all.

I was afraid our little bird house might cave in. ha.

Happy V-Day

Another kind reminder from the Big Guy. He can't clean his room and likes to talk back but he can write some nice stuff if you don't mind his sloppy handwriting (I don't should see mine!).

Remember that episode where Phoebe taught Rachel how to run like a child because it was more fun that way?
