Dreams really do come true and I am giddy with happiness!
I can see and feel a much needed change... coming.
I feel a unity and pride of country like I have not felt before. It's time to unite and make our country all it can be. What a historical day. God bless America!

Yes, I'm still here. I am in full production mode, trying to get thru this week (this is my weekly motto until December 24th). I always think it will get better if I can just push through til Monday. Then each Monday comes and I'm back "in the weeds".
I did manage a miracle yesterday. I took a bath, went to the bank and grocery, took my little one to the park, cooked a real dinner, washed dishes AND cleaned the toilet. This in addition to painting, painting, painting. The next time this all gets done on the same day it will be Christmas Eve. Really. Not a joke.
I will be posting ornaments this week. The above photo is a sketch of some of the designs. They are so cute when finished with ribbon and I really LOVE them. I hope you do too.
Today I HAVE to: VOTE, paint, pack items to ship Wednesday, call shops, order more supplies.... the list goes on and on and on.
I did celebrate my 12th wedding anniversary this weekend, Tom's gift to me... a nap! He is truly THE BEST!

All the flooring is different in this house. Wood/Vinyl/Ceramic
There is a STUDIO off this room, I think a playroom for this area would be nice.

Along with trying to build up my stock of key fobs and custom orders AND painting Christmas ornaments (I promise to post pics soon), I am obsessed with this house. Tom and I have lost out on the only 2 homes we both loved in the last 3 years. I have looked online and been thru dozens in the past 3 years. Tom wants a LARGE LOT and a mancave. I want more square footage, a concealed studio and something with character. This home has it all... and more. I am trying not to get excited about it with our history of losing to other bidders AND with this credit crunch. But I am already decorating and remodeling some of the rooms. Did I mention how SPECIAL the person that buys this home must be? It sits 40 feet from RR tracks, there is a family? graveyard on the property, it is on a country road 20 miles from a grocery store, the rooms are all interlocked...no hallways. It is a quirky house. Did I mention how SPECIAL I am? I see so much potential in this house. I will not be able to rush into this house purchase. I'm going to be patient and wait to see if it is MEANT to be. BUT hey, I can go ahead an start looking at fabric...right?

Never give a 10 year old this unless:
You want 12 calls from the backyard, bedroom ,bathroom...
You want her Aunt to be texted at 1:53 AM
And 6:15 AM
You want pictures of her sleeping with it
You like candid photos of you looking horrid
You only want to communicate via the phone
You want her to give ALL our neighbors the number
You like hearing 10,000 times "Thank You Mommy, I love it!"
