Animals

I've gotten 4 of the animals done. 4 down, 8 to go. I think the elephant is pretty cute! I am being a big fat slacker and doing it all on the machine. I don't have tons of time until Seth's 3rd birthday. (Poor Dan, he doesn't get enough recognition, it's his birthday too! Hell, it was his birthday first. It's just been slightly overshadowed by the arrival of our youngest boy.)

In other unrelated news, I am officially the cookie mom for this years Girl Scout Cookie Sale. Before you ask, yes, I am insane. It's crazy but not to hard really. SO.... if anyone want to buy some delicious, fabulous, wonderful, can-only-get-them-once-a-year, cookies... I'm your hook up. Besides, the girls want to use the money they raise to go toward a trip to camp (which I volunteered to go to also!) and more they raise, the less I pay out of pocket. I just pay for it with blood, sweat, and tears... no, not that. More like cold trips around the block, frustration, and a few broken nails. :)

Also, wholly unrelated, Simon is now in Black Belt Club at Tae Kwon Do. This means I only pay for two years and if he hasn't hit black belt yet he gets to keep going for free until he gets it. I am sure this will some how work in their favor and not mine because that's how things work out for me all the time. Although when I was at the quilt guild meeting I bought a door prize ticket and mentioned that I never win drawings. Luck was in my favor or maybe it was more that there were 5 door prizes and only 20 people there. I actually won. I got some cute batik fat quarters.

I better get going. Today is one of those busy days. Simon had a doctors appointment this morning to check on how his new brace is fitting, it's fine. We dashed over to Chipotle! I love Chipotle. I think they put crack in their burritos because they are very addictive. Where was I, oh yes, Hannah had girl scouts after school, and I have to leave in 15 minutes to take Simon to TKD. AND somehow I have to get the house all cleaned up because my favorite handyman is coming tomorrow morning to fix the cracks in the plaster walls. I am sure you didn't want to know all that but now you do anyway!
