I Am SO Excited

For this movie! I have been trying to get my hands on a copy of the book so I can read it before hand, but the me being broke and the library being backed up for 6 weeks on it has made it highly unlikely, I have gone so far as to go sit in Borders for an hour to just read. What sweet reprieve from my semi-crazy life.

This is what happens when efy takes over campus. Teenagers converge on the quad like ants at a picnic.

Michael was NOT happy that Grace had the shovel. I managed to get it away from her and redirect her attention so all was well.

Grace being the "typical woman" pushing Michael around.

Needing a Change?

do you ever feel like your bathroom is falling in on you? probably not. but mine literally has been. we got new neighbors a few weeks ago and ever since they have moved in we have had a steady leak any time they take a shower, and being the good neighbor i am I did NOT ask them to stop showering although I was sorely tempted to do so. they are loud, and annoying and not only have they ruined the ceiling in my bathroom (apparently the tile up there needs to be regrouted and i didn't really need a plumber anyway-i called a plumber because that's what my landlord told me to do) but they also park in my driveway! So until their bathroom gets re grouted ( I would LOVE to have mine regrouted mine is growing and no amount of bleach and or tilex gets rid of it ) I am stuck with a HUGE hole in the celing of my bathroom. And its a scary hole there is a peice of insulation up in it that looks like a bat face. Scary.

On a lighter note, since nothing in my life seems to be within my control and coloring my hair would be and incredilby bad and expensive idea I got a haircut instead. I was desperately in need of one and well bye-bye six inches. What do we think?

Ant.... Mudd

This is an ant.

And this is Mudd playing with Grace.

And this is Grace on top of the trampoline.

Any questions?

My friend Mudd called me up yesterday aka Aunt Mudd (hence the ant- which I took a picture of at her house) and asked if she could borrow Grace for the afternoon because she was bored. Her hubby has been out of town, he's a rocket scientist so he was doing Rocket Sciencey things in Florida so she and Grace had a play date. They played in the sand box, on the swing set and on the trampoline and just had a blast! She was exhausted by the time we got home. What a fun day!

How Does Your Garden Grow

So a while ago my friend opted to follow the trend and plant a garden. She apparently has a green thumb and voila! These are her beautiful crookneck squash. I am so jealous, although I helped get the garden ready and plant it she has done all the hard work, weeding and watering etc. Its beautiful, lush and green. Mine however is yellowish green and crunchy brown and NOT for lack of watering stupid squash bugs, but that's besides the point, LOOK at this amazingness!
Peppers, Cucumbers and Squash, OH MY! Did I mention I was jealous?

Long Boarding and Zeke

Anytime the longboard comes out Grace climbs on and wants to go for a ride.
She is much braver than I am, her balance is much better too.

Grace seems to think that Zeke (aka Optimus to my neighbors) is her own personal carry along toy.
Anytime she sees him she insists on picking him up.
We are working on learning the meaning of being soft.

"fate rarely calls upon us at a moment of our choosing"-optimus prime aka our kitty

I'm Glorious!

Bow to me!
Grace loves stealing my sun glasses and then posing.
What a goof.

A Fun Game to Play

The "rules" of this game are to commit to do the same. Post it to your blog and see what happens;) Good Luck! --

For the first five bloggers to leave a comment on this post and commit to do the same pay-it-forward on their blogs I will do the following and if you are one of the five this is what you will paste in your pay-it-forward post too :

I am willing to post overseas (I am in the U.S.), but remember you must commit on your blog to do the same for others.

1. I make no guarantees that you will like what I send you. But you may be pleasantly surprised. It will definitely be made by me.
2. What I send will be made just for you, with love, by my own hands. You'd be surprised how much of our personalities does come through online.
3. I will complete all 5 gifts this year - 2009. (So I guess the offer expires at the end of this year.)
4. I will not give you any clue what it’s going to be. It will be something made in the real world, that you can touch,taste, or feel, and not something cyber.
5. I reserve the right to do something strange. It may be weird or beautiful. Or it may be monstrous and annoying. If you find it truly horrendous, just let me know. Perhaps you'll send it forward to someone who will absolutely love it.
6. In return, all you need to do is post this text on your blog and make 5 things for the first 5 to respond to your blog post (one for each).
7. Send your mailing address - after I contact you to confirm.

Stike a Pose!

Grace adores wearing sunglasses, she stole mine off the top of my head and posed. My little starlet.
I just caught my vaccum on fire. How is your day?

A Purr-fect Friend

We would like to Welcome "Zeke" to our family. He arrived last Saturday and since he is supposed to be an outside cat he was staying outside. I figured he had just wandered off to go play with the neighborhood cats. Well I was looking on Craigslist today and I saw a picture of my little one under "found" I started to laugh, called the number and reclaimed my cat, but here's the funny part, I had to claim my cat from my NEXT DOOR neighbor!!! Seriously, right next door. Well Zeke is home and happy sleeping on my shoulders.

I will give someone 50 points if they can figure out why this little one is named Zeke, we were going to call him Fiero but figured Grace wouldn't be able to say that for while. She can say Eek though.
