tag--i'm it

here are five little known facts about me which i am not sure if they are really little known--we'll see:

  1. i have had stitches only once in my life and they were on purpose not by accident: i had a little hangy thing between my two front teeth. in third grade it was removed and 2 or 3 stitches were put it place to bring my gums back to together. i have never cut myself or even had stitches from having my babies--not a thing.
  2. i have always had a bad habit of biting my nails--except for the two months i was engaged (too many people looking at my hands).
  3. i love to sleep on the couch and i always have. my dad used to say "i don't know why you have a room, you never even sleep in it". i think it is a security thing--i used to (and still do although not as frequent) have really horrible nightmares. i am getting better now since i sleep through the night.
  4. speaking of dreams, i have deja vu a lot--it's freaky. my latest occurred with the vt shooting last week. disturbing. really disturbing. (it's not always with bad things.)
  5. i talk to myself all the time. outloud. it's great. and i talk to things--objects--like they can hear me and respond back. it's kind of nice to always have something or someone (i am a great listener) to listen.

there you go. fascinating. i tag mom, katie, mickey, michele and annie (i guess, annnie, that means you have to start a blog!)

girl going postal

hey friends:
here's a new blog to check out when you got some time. it will be good. i am so excited!

would you like some cheese with that whine?

last night we were coming home late. and, of course, anna was whining.
"daddy, my legs are so tired. will you carry me to my bed?"
"and daddy, i am so thirsty. will you get me a drink?"
"and daddy. . ."
whiny, whiny, whiny.
i told her to stop whining.
"but i am not whining" in her most whiny voice yet.
so i mimicked, "but i am not whing!"
"no, mom, i am not whining"
"i am not whining" i whiningly repeated.
then she says, in a loud, extra whiny voice:
"i am NOT whining!! this is my sleepy voice."

wow, i didn't even come up with that when i was young. if i had only known...

mikey, in his own handwriting

he has learned to write his name. being a good mom, i told him that an e has only three lines. he told me it looks better with more. so, being a good mom, i let him keep all his lines.

busy a bee

Hi there, I am currently really busy sewing an Easter dress for Anna. It is adorable. Canary yellow with darling white polka dots. I also mastered a single strap purse to match the dress, it has a white wide ribbon bow to match the bow on Anna's dress. She'll look like the little angel she is.

Next I'll be making Mikey baby blue shorts with matching suspenders. He'll look just like the handsome boys in my favorite movie THE SOUND OF MUSIC . Thanks goodness for little boys.

I am so sorry for not blogging for almost a whole month. I know who my faithful bloggers are and I know you check every day waiting to see if I've posted. Thank you for being so faithful. Nothing means more to me than your steadfast support. Please know of my gratitude for all of your kindness.

Gotta go, the sewing machine is calling me...
