and to balance out all that negativity...

I did make a lovely spinny skirt for my littlest one last night. Used some of the tie-dyed fabric I had intended to make babyslings out of. Finished it in record time, before she was even done throwing a big fit. DH is now working first shift again, which once we get adjusted, is so much better for everyone (so he was on tantrum duty while I made the skirt last night). Now I need to make older sis something, too, just can't get my head in the right place to do it. When I make something I don't feel like making, it turns out all wrong. But I promised. I still need to get batteries for the digital camera, which explains why I have no new photos to share.

I ordered magazine subscriptions for the girls yesterday. Ranger Rick for DD1, and National Geographic for Little Kids for DD2. I had gotten special offers in the mail recently, so got a better price than what they offer online. They are growing up so fast, and learning so many new things. Such amazing little people. I see hope for the world when I look in their eyes. Things can't be that bad as long as there are people like them around.

and I don't generally forward email jokes, but I will share this one with anyone still reading my blog...

Is yer Pa home?" the farmer asked. "No sir, he ain't," the boy replied. "He went into town."
"Well", said the farmer, "is yer Ma here?" "No, sir, she ain't here neither. She went into town with Pa. " "How about your brother, Howard? Is he here?" "He went with Ma and Pa. '
The farmer stood there for a few minutes, shfting from one foot to the other and mumbling to himself.
"Is there anything I can do fer ya?" the boy asked politely. "I knows where all the tools are, if you want to borry one. Or maybe I could take a message fer Pa. "
"Well," said the farmer uncomfortably, "I really wanted to talk to yer Pa. It's about your brother Howard getting my daughter, Pearly Mae, prgnant."
The boy considered for a moment. "You would have to talk to Pa about that," he finally conceded. "If it helps you any, I know that Pa charges $50 for the bull and $25 for the hog, but, I really don't know how much he gets for Howard."
