Don't wait until the primaries. . .

Vote now

click the box then, once on the page, click 'vote for this charity' on the right **EDIT-oops, click the green 'vote now' button which is just above the 'vote for this charity' on the right. for those who don't know, ggyr is a nonprofit horse ranch founded by tug's sister and her husband (i think most of you know her blog but, if not, click
here to be taken to it).
much obliged.

Things that make you go

YIPPY. . .

{c} has slept from midnight until 8ish for the past three nights.

{s} has kept her pull-up dry at night for the past few nights and last night she was dry again just sleeping in regular panties. no more buying pull-ups.

today is supposed to be nice so we are hoping to spend it poolside. . .

after getting the house clean (not yay) because tug gets home tonight (super yay).

A long, long time ago

i can still remember when
i used to update this blog.

and i knew if i would just write
and share with all in my delight
then maybe you'd be happy
for a while.

anyone know the actual lyrics to the song i changed up there? i think i mentioned long ago that i had actually completed a knitting project. i never came back to show you what i made. they aren't really suspense worthy, but they are cute. {r}'s First Communion teacher gave me around 4 pairs of booties and a hat that her mother had knit for her future grandchildren. unfortunately, she knit them in pink and the teacher is expecting a boy. i thought i would make her a pair, to share the hand knit love.
aren't they cute? now, if i was a good blogger i would tell you where i got the pattern. i am a bad blogger. i do know though that i originally saw them on throughtheloops. perhaps if you go through some of her posts you will find the link to the pattern. or, if you are patient, i might update this post in another month or so with the link.

now, i am off to don the coat that i borrowed from james dean to sing for the king and queen since i am a jester--stay tuned for a post with pictures of {c} smiling.
