GRRRRR:
so those of you who have pics in your sig how did you do it then? Did you use another online picture resource like snapfish? I tried to do it straight from my computer files but I can't figure out how!
Suggestions (from those of you who don't seem to be in mortal pain that is!)??

I am glad it made a difference for you.

Foot a bit better today. Still can't stand up or even hop b/c the blood rushing to the foot makes me almost pass out. Getting a bit tired of being in bed and crawling to the bathroom. I haven't had a shower in four days and my hair is stringy, yuck. Going to try to get in the tub today. I am hoping that now we are on day three of the million dollar antibiotics that the healing process will speed up a bit. With dh going back to work, mama needs to get ambulatory! My Bf is coming over tomorrow to spend the day with me

Well, we had to postpone the trip to the coast on account of my back. It's not nearly as bad today as it was yesterday, but I don't want to jar it or something on the beach, since that always requires frolicking. So... next week.

I also just discovered, because I'm apparently blind, or just don't look in the right place, although I caught a hint the other day that, Alberta Co Op is RIGHT on my route to and from Lily's school if I take NE 15th between Prescott and Killingsworth.

I'm going to go check it out today, because I haven't been inside yet, although... not on my bike. Ho, hum.

I guess I'll know for sure tonight after grocery wrangling if I need to be adjusted for sure.

I took DH to the airport this morning. He promised DD he would take all kinds of pictures of DC for her.. then I come home and find his camera on the stove. He had it in his hand. I didn't think he could screw up getting it from his hand to his laptop bag. I Texted him and told him to buy a disposable.

Also I would like to say that 10am on a Sunday morning is apparently the BEST time to go to the Hollywood Trader Joes. I was in and out of there with 6 eco bags, one paper bag, and three kids in 30 minutes!!

Oh no, Tina! I hope he does get a disposable, because DC is pretty fun to photograph!

I haven't been there since I was 14; WAY before digital cameras, but it's so beautiful there.

DD REALLY REALLY REALLY wants to go to DC. But we just couldn't swing the airfare for the rest of us.

I wonder if it would be reasonable to overnight the camera to his hotel. Hrm.

WTH! Look at the hotel they sent him too!!

http://www.gaylordhotels.com/gaylord...sure-local-map

It's no fair he gets to always have all the fun.

ETA: USP overnight would cost about $55. He could buy a cheap digital camera for that. Maybe I will tell him to do that and we can give THAT camera to Bre so she leaves mine alone.

Sav and Hedy, I hope you ladies feel better soon.

We have a bunch of family in town right now. It's fun, but I already got into an argument with my aunt's husband. Let's just say he won't be making any racist comments anymore. Drunk Candice was on the scene.

Anyway, I think we are going to go to my favorite coffee shop today. It's also a used books store.

Wow, I have impressed myself with my use of smilies. :::

Drunk Candice rules!

The Big-Ass Ghetto TV is gone. So is the recliner. It's the end of an era. I am both happy and sad.

Went to the new place yesterday to meet with the housemate, get keys, talk about general housekeeping quirks and whatnot. On all the household stuff, it turns out we both do most stuff the same way, use the same laundry detergent, same dish soap, same stuff to clean, and we seem to be picky about the same things. So that bodes well for ongoing harmonious living.

I'm goodwilling pretty much everything. Unless someone wants me to save 5T boys stuff for them. (It's mixed in with a lot of "Ew! Not on my kid..." stuff, and some bigger stuff that won't work. There's some 7 slim jeans that are really nice, but are too tight for Sprogly's big boy booty.)

Guess I should start making lists for the give away thread, but I have so little time for mish-moshing schedules. Oh well.

I just got back from the shortest bike ride ever. I think it took longer to get the trailer hooked up and the kids in it. But I have decided that Bre and Alex are too heavy for me. 46 and 32 lbs plus the tailer is about 80 extra pounds and I am a bike wuss. Bah.

Alex constantly throws his food all over the floor. There is no rhyme or reason. Something he liked last week is all over the floor this week.

Should I scramble to find something he will eat or just let him go without?

OK and the green beans we grew taste like crap. Did I let them grow to long? They taste like the stuff I hated as a kid.

I am such a moron. I bought what I thought was little pieces of cubed ham at Trader joes. It said Italian style bacon but I thinking Canadian bacon which is of course Ham. So when Alex wouldn't eat I gave him some. He ate one small piece before I realized what it was. Do you think it's OK? I am so mad at myself. He is eating strawberries now.

Ruby just had her first official sentence!

"Lily: stop NOW!" Lily was singing the same song over and over and over again, so I guess it was... appropriate?
