like miss fabric hoarder doesn't have elastic - puuuh leeeeeze!

Depending on how big your girl is the soft fabric headbands are okay to use or the ones that look like giant rubber bands. I didn't like using the skinny ones that looked like giant rubber bands as they were too hard for me to keep the tulle even and straight.

I will try to find something. I've had wayyyyyy too much rum in my coke zero tonight. A midwife friend of mine is dying of cancer (like any day now) and I just found out tonight. I knew she was quite sick but didn't know that she had gotten on the bus. So i should be lots of fun tomorrow.,,,

There is plenty of elastic and never too much rum.


Maggie and I started our agility training last night, she's not nearly as good as Dash but she's also so much calmer and more manageable so it's more fun.

To add insult to injury, I got some chest pain last ni ght. I took a nitro pill the doc gave me and while it was lovely to get rid of the chest pain, I have an instant migraine. I have had ice on my head all night. So Dh is taking DS to school and hopefully DD won't drive me nuts today. i'm not sure we will make it. I feel like my head is going to blow here now.

I think I need to bail on today and take advantage of MIL being able to provide a distraction for the kids. I have some things I really need to get done (like painting DD's kitchen, cut & sew another mei tai, take down christmas stuff, move furniture, etc) that I just can't do without an extra pair of hands

I'm really missing you guys, but I *really* need to feel productive right now! Have fun making tutus! It sounds like a blast...

Just a modifiedartist.gif trying to find some peace and regain my balance.

So we never decided what to do about MNO. Are we waiting for Doularn to call the babysitter and see if she's available first?

Thanks for coming over today everyone. We had a blast and my kids really needed it (as did I!) And thanks Eman for letting me use some of your tulle. Who knew S would want one?

Great! Now who has a Wii and is willing to host?

For those who asked about my SIL and piano lessons she said she'd like to see how S does before offering lessons to other kids. S did pretty well. She talked to SIL about a lot of things she wouldn't have otherwise (Beethoven's hair and why he lookes mean for instance) and only had one moment of weird (told my SIL that when she was a little girl she used to play piano until she was an old woman which is something she's bringing up a lot lately.)

I do have a Wii and can host but that would defeat the purpose of a babysitter and would not leave us childfree.

Who has Wii Fit?

Thanks for hosting yesterday elmh! That was fun and dd wore her new tutu to the park yesterday afternoon. I was thinking how cool would it be if I could wear a tutu to the park whenever I wanted! Ok I think I'm officially losing it.

We will not ever be getting our phone number back. UGGHHH Another frustrating call with qwest. They canceled our request without ever telling us b/c Vonage has our number. So dh and I decided that we would just stick with my cell for now. All the resumes he's sent out over the last week have my cell number on them and the ones with our home number on will just have to be. Hopefully if they want him they'll email, but we can't worry about it anymore. The ones that he can he's emailing to let them know his number has changed. Ugghhhh So incredibly frustrating. But, I guess the positive is that it will save us some money.

Look at the positive, saving money is great : (ok I'm grasping).

We have both a Wii and a Wii fit, I can host if people are willing to drive, I'd have to see about where to dump Dh and the kids?

I am 80% finished editing L's project due Monday. I made the mistake of trying the word program in the new computer, and the new wireless scanner trying to marry the text and his drawings. I imagine this computer is amazing if the owner was smart enough to figure out how to use it. So for all my whining I called DH and told him to get home and help me finish cause he was so not leaving town again with out this getting done. Oy vey!!

This is only third grade and I am nuts.

So we're back from our trip to Disneyland. Had a blast! Weather was nice and only the first day was crowded. DS was perfect little angel baby during the day. . so much to look at he didn't have time to cry! And then at night he nursed and cried nonstop. . .didn't realize until this morning that he's cutting his two top teeth at the same time. That 'splains it! Good to be home, though.

Glad you're back and had a blast. Too bad about the teeth though. Hopefully they'll come in quick and it'll be over soon.

So where are we tomorrow?

You guys can come to my house if you like. It's messy but if you don't mind, you're more than welcome to come. DH can take the kids to his parents' house while everyone is here.
