Here comes the.......chaching!

I don't know about the rest of you but I'm not terribly happy about this Stimulus Package, however there is absolutely nothing I can do to stop it so I am resigned to taking the money.
So inquiring minds want to know (which means I'm nosy). What do all of you plan on doing with the money? I think that we've decided to use some of it to build up or food storage (which we desperately need), some we're going to put away for a rainy day (exactly not what the Government wants), and some of it we will be investing in my car.

Hey, most of you don't know about my car. car....dreamy eyed......Sorry you lost me for a second. Well I have this car, my first car, that we have been keeping in storage (total shame) because we can't afford the insurance and gas on it. It is the coolest, ultimate, best ever car. And now I will post pictures of my of my babies.

Extra! Extra! Reader All About It!

I discovered the most amazing invention yesterday. This is going to be big, I mean mega-millions. Oh yeah!
Okay, so maybe I'm not the inventor and maybe I'm not even the first to hear about this but it's still pretty cool.
So if you are a blog stalker, which I of course am, then this little doo hickey is for you. I have tons of blogs that I read (love those design blogs and the blogs of my friends) but it's trying to have to check each and every blog to see if someone just happened to have posted. But now, thanks to Google reader, it keeps me posted as to the postings of all my blogs. Totally check it out. It's really fun.

What Have I Done?

So I never really realized how much of a "Miss Priss" I had turned my daughter into until today. While I was out weeding getting ready to plant a garden (yes, gasp, lets let the shock and amazement settle in) Lydia was playing with the spade, transporting dirt from one side of the "garden" to the other. Then all of a sudden the most horrible thing that could have happened........she got dirt on her finger. "Oh my goodneck!" Which loosely translated means oh my goodness however the more exact definition is:

oh my goodneck (ō ˈ ˈgŭdnĕk) 1 : most often used to express one's amazement 2 : the mystification of one's self 3 : used to indicate a feeling of horror or disgust 4 : an expression often used for anything that will amaze, mystify, horrify, and disgust a 2 year old.

Weekend Workings

I finely finished one of my projects this weekend. I started it last week however I've had it around for far longer than that.
Here is the before picture:
The after:

Pretty and pink, my new little scrap booking cabinet.
Caleb also thought it would be fun to start sitting up by himself.

My GQ Man

I bet none of you knew I was married to a GQ man.

Playin with Polaroid

Alas, it will not be long until the infamous Polaroid goes the way of the things that go away.
How little I knew thee, we were just getting acquainted and I do believe it could have been true love.

I will hold on as long as it is possible but it will be a bitter farewell.
Is there not one among us that can save my dear Polaroid?
Pray there is so I do not have to bid goodbye to this true hero, this true friend, my true Polaroid.

Ho hum

So our little stint into the world of big girl beds didn't quite last very long. We jumped in but it got too hot so we jumped back out and now Lydia is back sleeping in the crib. Maybe she's just not ready or maybe we're trying it too late. So I guess we'll see what happens. I'm not sure what else we could have tried. We tried the Super Nanny approach, the problem with that is she never actually came out of her room and instead would just sit and play. We were only able to put her back in when we chanced to see her out. Then we tried sitting in front of her door until she went to sleep. That's not at all convenient, let me tell you so then we moved onto just letting her stay in her room until she fell asleep on her own. After 4 days of her not going to sleep until 11:00 we scrapped that idea. So maybe we'll revisit this in a month or two.
Caleb started rolling all over the place on Tuesday. He did it once that morning and then he just wanted to show off and he kept on doing it all day long. Now, when he's sick of being on his tummy he can rectify the situation all by himself.
