Bullet Point Life

  • I'm hosting a baby shower this weekend for my gal pal who had twins last month. I made this diaper cake last night, and I'm freaking proud of it!

  • I went to W@lmart tonight at 11:45. Because I have no time folks. There I was at midnight buying punch, eggs, balloons and water. I was the ONLY shopper I saw in there. The workers even seemed surprised every time they came upon me wandering around. When the management started talking over the PA about ice cream, etc. it was time for me to rustle up my crap and get out of there.
  • I like my pajamas more than any other piece of clothing I have. Where is the crime in that? (I guess the crime was in wearing them to W@lmart tonight...)
  • D@ncing with the "stars" is a disappointment this season. Where have all the good dancers gone?
  • American Id@l is ok...we like David and Michael. (Who doesn't like Michael?)
  • Tornado warning back in effect for tomorrow. Pray for me. I've already dismantled the bunker...and I'm supposed to go meet my dear Robyn and her darling Avery as they return from China tomorrow evening. It's supposed to be NASTY weather. They probably won't even let them land?
  • Work and life is gonna make me croak. I'm so overwhelmed that I'm underwhelmed. I want a whole day to lay in bed and there is just no possible hope of that on the horizon. Sob.
  • We got two new pictures of our boy - which were it not for strict rules, I would post here for you all to enjoy. He's a doll! But I will admit, there was a moment of hesitation when I saw his picture - because our little man is already growing and changing - so much so, that at first I was like "huh? who is that?" No worries. It's him. Or a remarkable look alike.
  • Now that the house projects are mostly done, we just have to get through April (which is incredibly busy) and then it's bam, bam, bam - and we're off to Africa. Those three bams stand for time flying by the first two weeks of May.
  • Despite the fact that we are adopting our son in the middle of our long wait for Keira - we miss her so much it hurts. It's like a hole in my heart. I can't wait to go and bring her home. Counting the days...
  • What are these ant looking things in my house with wings? They don't look like termites - but I've killed four in different areas of the house over the last 24 hours. Starting to freak me out.
  • AB's next production is "Sound of Music". I'm so excited - it's one of my favorite movies ever.
  • Thanks for all the really nice comments about the makeover for the house. It was soooo much work - we were zombies afterward for about two days. But soooo worth it!
That's all I've got for now...just felt like sharing...

Midnight shopping is the best! No one there to get in your way!
Those ant things might be carpenter ants, they eat on wood too. My parents had a problem once and if I rememeber correctly, they were coming in from a tree by their bedroom window. I'd call your pest control guy!!
Great job on the cake.
