They say we all have a twin.

Just didn’t realize they could be 70 years removed. Remember the woman from the Old Navy commercials? It’s her!!! She is Tot’s twin! At least in the glasses department. And perhaps in the being-inordinately-fond-of-her-pet department too. Though I really kind of hope Tot doesn’t end up making commercials like her twin’s ….. Pretty please? They [...]

All in a Day’s Play

These pictures are from a few days ago. Today was another matter entirely.

Today, I woke up to snow! It progressed from tiny dust-sized specks to great big fluffy marbles – the big ones. Then I went to wake Tot up. She was buried under a pillow and did not want to be dug [...]

Something’s Brewing!

I think Tot has cast a spell on me. I’ve been cleaning and organizing for three days straight – that’s the equivalent of a world record, Olympic even! Though today we did take a break to make a banjo. Yes, we did. But I’m not saying any more, ’cause I hope to have a special [...]

Watch out Guinness!

Yes, I have a mutant child.

Doctor, doctor! Should her tongue be THAT big? And streaked?

Maybe I should enter her in the Guinness Book of World Records….

Look there’s not even a category for Big tongues… Look out, here we come!

Future nuclear physicist or nerdy ballerina?

How am I supposed to say no to anything she wants? I do, but it’s hard. Very hard. My little Einstein… Hard to believe she wants to be a ballerina, isn’t it? I think [...]

Sybil-tot, but in a good way…

So I was looking back through some pictures I had taken in the fall, and had to laugh. This is Tot’s interpretative dance, or perhaps it’s her multiple personalities…

First she starts with a little Tai Chi….

Then says a little prayer.

She decides to cast a spell, probably on me….

Anticipation…

You probably can’t wait to see our new kitchen, hunh?

Well, quite honestly, neither can I…

Yes, it is STILL not done. We’re sooo close, but it seems to be following that age old rule. The first 90% of the job takes 90% of the scheduled time, the last 10% takes the other 90% of [...]

The View from my office…

I’ve sequestered myself in the dining room with a year’s worth of receipts in order to prepare myself for doing our TAXES. Ick, double ick, and even a helping of UGH. Okay, in reality, there’s lots of swearing going on in my head. Occasionally something goes vocal, and don’t be surprised if you hear [...]
