Teaching Manners

Making Cabbage Patch write Thank You notes for her birthday gifts. I wrote out what she wanted to say so all she has to do is copy it letter for letter onto the card.

Our conversation:
Her: After writing the 'Dear Sarge, Red and Blondie,' "I'm going to the bathroom, okay?"
Me: "Okay."
Her: Pointing to the unfinished card as she walks away "You can finish writing that, okay?"
Me: "I don't think so."

Silly girl.

Duck Days Of Summer

Yesterday the progeny and I went to the park with D to feed the ducks.
As you see here, the ducks were in short supply, but the geese were plentiful.

My favorite photo of the offspring.
And me. I was shocked by the photo because I look less fat than I anticipated.

More Or Less

Things are better... more or less.

The actual issue is over... more or less.

Life is back on track... not really.

What happened? I really, really, really do not want to talk about it. I get angry just thinking about it and considering all I could have lost due to malicious lies. I get weary when I realize that though it is 'OVER' it's not really and I still have jump through hoops. And yet I still am optimistic that some good will come out of all of this, everything happens for a reason and that karmic balance of the universe will once again be restored. It has to, right?

Moving on... I'm so happy my Tiny Terrorists are home! They are sleeping right now and I have to fight the urge to run up the stairs, burst into their room just to snuggle them and breath in their kid vapors.

Speaking of kids... wanna see a picture of me as a little bitty kid? Of course you do!
I think I was maybe 2 in this picture. (See... my natural hair color really IS dark brown!)

How about something to scar every child for life? Let's put the fun back in disFUNctional!

A scary CLOWN! My mom as the SCARY CLOWN! No really, that's my mom. She loved clowns and she dressed up as the SCARY CLOWN a few times, I'm loath to admit that I actually made that damn clown outfit. Don't hate! I was only 12! How was I to know it would be completely disturbing?

And one of my favorites... my dad.

Daddy was so young! Just past 25 or 26. We were at the beach, D is in the foreground of the photo and I'm intruding in the photo in the back. I love this photo.

Also... thank you to all of you who sent prayers, thoughts, kind words, voodoo spells, etc. yesterday and today for me. I'm sure they all helped tremendously. As always, I'm humbled by the kindness of my friends. I truly am blessed to have you all as friends.

Ahhhh... Just Perfect

I stepped on a big ass piece of glass - about 2 inches into the arch of my foot. It's okay, I took first aid classes a long time ago. Let me tell you, that whole put pressure on it thing works. Good times, good times.
Life Sucks

I'm having the worst birthday ever. I can't talk about it, so please don't ask. All prayers, thoughts, good vibes, whatever happy mojo you can send my way is appreciated. And no this isn't "Oh people forgot my birthday!" shit, this is really, really bad and very serious.
Happy Geeky Birthday To ME!

The first message in my email box for today:

We at ENWorld - Morrus' 4th Edition D&D / d20 News and Reviews Site would like to wish you a happy birthday today!

HAHAHAHAHA! How geektacularly awesome!

What A Weekend!

Wow, the luau was way fun. Penis CAKE! (No I won't post those photos and I won't explain either - if the powers that employ me were to find out about penis CAKE I'd be so fired! I'd appreciate it if anyone who does have photos of said cake, does NOT post them for obvious reasons. I'm proud of my work and amused by that cake, just don't post that pic. ;) )

I'm to tired to make a REAL post so it's just photos of the wedding and grooms cakes from Saturday.

Something pretty for the case.
Another case cake. It sold pretty quick.
Case cake, sold in 2 hours.
Grooms cake.
The wedding cake it matched. The bride LOVED this so much, she hugged me.

This one is my FAVORITE of the cakes though. It took the longest and just surprised the hell out of me by how beautiful it turned out.
