Pink is her color

March 31, 2008

Well, we had an exciting weekend! How was yours? Not to brag, but I bet ours was much more fun. You see, around 2pm on Saturday, my 2 year old daughter fell off the ramp part of our swing set. She didn’t fall far. Only about 4 FEET!!!! My husband didn’t realize that he should have been helping her on the ramp. He’s only 37 and he’s still learning.

I came home from the grocery store about 10 minutes after it happened and I KNEW something was wrong. This kid doesn’t cry longer than 20 seconds after she gets hurt. I felt her elbow and it felt weird to me. Her father thought it felt fine. I took off her shirt and could clearly see that her bone was not where it should have been. Her father said she was fine. I took her to the ER.

X-rays revealed that she broke her elbow so they took us by ambulance to Children’s Hospital in Boston. Can I just tell you how great they are there? LOVE THEM. They gave her a stuffed giraffe, books, and a balloon. And believe me when I tell you she wasn’t that nice to them. She kept saying, “I don’t like doctors!!! I want to go home!!!!” I have no idea where she gets it from. (Shut up you in the back). Then they did surgery to reset her elbow using 2 pins and put a pink cast on. Yes, she chose the color. She did great! We had to stay overnight for observation, and we came home yesterday morning.

Read at your own risk.

My kids are lovely, sweet, good, funny, happy children.  But they are also obnoxious (interpret anyway you want). 

Since last Sunday, I have only worked one day this very long week, and I am not scheduled to go back in until Wed, the 19th.  If I make it until that day.

Stay at home mothers seriously need to bottle their patience and give me some of it.  I cannot play another round of ANYTHING!!!!  I do not want to play anymore.  I just want to sit on the couch with my legs up and a bunch of fuzzy blankets piled up on me and watch TV.  

I do not want to break up anymore fights between a 2 yr old and a 4 yr old.  I do not want to tell anyone NOT to touch the Easter eggs!!! one more time!!!   I do not feel like doing laundry, and I know I have mentioned before my HATRED of cooking.  I.HATE.COOKING.  HATE!!!!!!!!!   I want that on a bumper sticker.

OK, I have to put on a load of laundry now, then start dinner, and then take the kids outside to play.  TTYL.

He’s such a good sport.  At least neither of them had a pair of scissors in hand 😉

Does anyone need 18…..

March 13, 2008


I am in the middle of purging my house of all things useless to me.  I cleaned out one kitchen cabinet earlier and realized I had 18 Tupperware/Rubbermaid orphan covers.  No containers to go with them.  I do remember throwing some of those out, though not 18!!! I don’t  have any reasonable explanation why I didn’t throw out the covers too.  My poor husband.  He is a saint for putting up with me.  UGH!

Huge score

Huge score the other day. I just can’t pass up any furniture that is in great condition. Unless of course, I decide I don’t like it. I found this chair near a dumpster. Actually there were 6 of them but only 3 were vinyl. I grabbed the best one.

Do you like it? It’s in the Danish Modern style from a company called Paoli. I’m guessing this is from the 1970s. Someone must have been redecorating their office space. It is so sturdy and I just love a free score! I put it in my son’s room because it looks kind of masculine to me.

Makes me happy.

is this any better?

Good morning all!  Some cool awesome fellow bloggers have let me know that they are having trouble reading my blog because the images come out gigantic on their screens.  So, I am working hard at fixing this problem.  Ironically, it doesn’t happen on everyone’s computer.

Can you all read this post fine?  Is the photo a decent size or is it gigantic again?

This is my view

this is the view of my kitchen from where I sit at my computer.  I just love the colors.  The paper rings were done with my kids last week.  They had lots of fun making them because they got to use tape!  Lots and lots of tape!!  Tape ended up in quite a few places that day, let me tell you.198_9864.jpg

I need…

March 3, 2008

to get a pair of UGG boots. It’s been long enough, that now they are cheap enough that I can afford a pair, no? I see them everywhere, and everyone looks so comfortable wearing them. I want them in dark brown. Size 7 1/2.
Gonna go search for them now.

BTW, I’m working on switching to wordpress. I’ll let you know when I’m done.

eta:  checked them out.  still too expensive.  oh well.
