Monday, September 24, 2007

well. it's Monday..........

Forgive me darlings, if I ramble, if I make no sense, if I fall asleep mid sentence....

you see, I am bedraggled (as opposed to bedazzled, like with the "Beadazzler"), it was a more tiring than usual weekend with the the cheese, and I don;t want to bore you with details or endless "kid drama" but it was a tiring weekend, lots of sweet parts as usual, but then.............then there was the "other parts".

You see the lilttle cheese in on growth hormones which seem to be making her, well....hormonal, so picture the poor thing, crying for no reason, crying, crying, screaming, biting herself, then laughing and smiling, then she's fine....then she cries again.

seeing as she is non verbal and has very little way to communicate there is no way for her to express "what's wrong" if there is anything wrong at all.

so there was a lot of that, which usually happened anytime my bubs and I were both sitting down at the same time, at every meal, at night, and all through the day.

ok, I'm done with the baby blather, or toddler tattling, if you will.

How are all of you? good? fantastic? your lives, are they marvie?

Oh before I forget I have two announcements....I am still having my "BLOG LOVE" 20% off sale, so please write "Blog Love" in the message to seller section for 20% off. I am on post 296, so I am going to 300...woo hoo.

Also, sometime (cross your fingers) late in the week I will be adding some new products to my shop, including...........

a new button set, stickers, rings, and hair pins.

I am so excited, I have pictured today the designs for the new buttons and stickers!!

Time for a little Top 5 List and then I'm out.........

1- The Cello..........oh, a dream lost, I swear I should have learned to play it's so beautiful, yesterday I managed to watch half of Live From Lincoln Center with Yo Yo Ma, and got lost in the music, such a mournful and wonderful noise.

2- Model Student, this book was given to me from Jody, and I love her even more for it, what a ridiculously good book, total fluff, but really fun, a must read for all of you fashionista's out there.

3- The October issue of W....really splendid, way better than September, by far!!!

4- this is when I want to write something about how glorious Fall is, because I love it and it's the end of September, but seeing as it's been almost 90 here for several days and will be almost 90 today, I can't write about fall.....thanks global warming, this is a shout out to all the Republicans and "experts" in Fox news...You see, Global Warming is not just something Al Gore made up to make a movie.

5- The Whiles, they are a wonderful Columbus based band that actually should be famous, like really famous, like the Caliber of famous that is Ryan Adams or Damien Rice, but not the caliber of famous that is Kanye West...if that makes sense.

go to their website and buy their cd, seriously, go now.

Glad you survived another cheese weekend -- this one sounds like it was especially harrowing. Poor kid. Poor you and K.

But on the plus side: yeah, it is fall. And yes, it is kinda warm right now, but don't worry: cool nights and pumpkins, just around the corner. YAYYYY!!!!!!!! (I just threw my hands up in the air and waived them around like Kermit the Frog.)

Yup, I'm not going to have kids. I can't see it happening. The weather doesn't feel like fall yet, but the sun rising at exactly due east as I was trying to drive to work this morning was a sure reminder that something's changing.

Fab post. As you know, i am a sucker for a Top 5 list! I can really see you playing the cello. You should resurrect that dream! And I will definitely put Model Student on my amazon list. Sounds like my kinda read.
