7 Quick Takes


~~~1~~~

One swim meet down (2 if you count the Mock Meet), and 4 to go!  Pretty good meet last night, as those things go.  The weather was clear instead of stormy, we got slaughtered, and I had a good job as Place Judge.  Place Judges get awesome seats at the finish line (can you call it a "finish line" in a pool???), so I got to see every event in the first half.  And there was only a little bit of arguing over which of their swimmers came in 1st, 2nd, and 3rd.  Their pool has 8 lanes which is really tough to call, so there were 3 of us.  I mean 1 of me, and 2 of them.  Hmmm.....

But seriously, they had 275 swimmers to our 180, so there was no way we could win against them.  We usually win every meet except the one against a huge team.  Why is that?  Why can't they have all slow swimmers?  Someone explain it to me.

I think all my kids were pretty pleased with their performances.  TMax beat his personal best in the IM, so he was happy.  The Little Princess did the breaststroke for the first time and did a good job.  They're looking forward to Fun Friday at practice today:  ribbons, donuts, and pool games.

~~~2~~~

Going camping for the weekend with the American Heritage Girls.  I have a lot of shopping and packing to do this morning!  I hope this state park has lots to do because Hitch and Madden are not exactly thrilled to be spending the weekend with a bunch of little girls and their little brothers.  Do the state parks have wireless clouds hovering over them like college campuses do?  Imagine: relaxing in your hammock, listening to the birds chirp, feeling the breeze, and reading blogs facebooking.

~~~3~~~

Last day of school today for my high schooler!  It's kind of anti-climactic, though, since he still goes back at least 3 days a week for football workouts.  The homeschoolers are going to continue plugging away at their core subjects until the books are done. Now, don't get all in a dither over my making them work during the summer!  They've done little enough for weeks without count, and from what I hear, even the public schools like for kids to do workbooks during the summer.  This won't be any worse than that!

~~~4~~~

No knitting happening.  That makes me sad.  But I can feel LP's quilt calling me from the basement.  I can go down there and work on it since KT was a gem and cleaned up the school/craft room while I took the sleeves off her dress.  Maybe next week....

~~~5~~~

It looks like our television is dying.  Boy, they don't make TV's like they used to!  Our first TV lasted forever and this one isn't anywhere near as old.  I know that's really vague for you people that like numbers, but my brain doesn't remember numbers and dates!  A large part of me would like to just let it die and give up the satellite dish altogether, but I think that part of me is going to lose to the smaller part of me combined with the large part of the Master of the World who wants a Big New Fancy Television!

~~~6~~~

It's time for me to get finished here and go exercise.  I found a new workout that I'm loving.  It's simple, short, and intense.  I especially like the short part.  I don't think any of the variations are more than 16 minutes long!  It's good for busy moms and people who just hate to work out, but it's exhausting and has actually made a difference this month.  My thighs are much stronger than they were!  

Now, if you see me walking down the street, you'll probably say that I don't look any different than I did before.  And I don't, not really, but I can feel the muscles.  They might actually show more if I did the program exactly as written, but I still do my run/walks with dh during the week and I haven't been super-strict with my diet as he suggests.  I didn't make the month of May an All Out War!

~~~7~~~
Did I mention that we're going camping?  Time for me to hop to it and get my act together.  Don't blog too much while I'm gone!  I'll never be able to catch up!
Oh, but if you haven't actually blogged for months....feel free.  I'll be more than happy to read it when I get back.  :-)

Graduation Day!

Look out, World----Here he comes!


Ready for his big day!




Showing off his stuff!


My goofy family, taking their cue from the graduate!


He dodged pictures most of the day.


He would only happily pose with his favorite big sister!
(Oh, and she's wearing the dress that I cut the sleeves off of.)

She had to put on her cap and gown to pose and compare cords!



And no, he's not posing by himself. KT was in the picture too, I just zoomed in and cropped her out!

Belated Memorial Day Post

I should have posted this on Monday, but with family in town and lots going on, I didn't get around to it. Although I technically had time on Monday, I was busy relaxing, not blogging.

"Tell My Mama I Did My Best"

This is a picture that Madden did for his final art project of the year. Its a section of a photograph rendered in colored pencil. He added the words "Honor, Courage, Commitment" on the Marine's sleeve and the quotation at the bottom.

I think it's pretty amazing. I'm proud of him!

7 Quick Takes Friday



1. This is Jade, the turtle the children found and kept as a pet for a few days. I was starting to worry about her chances of survival when she mysteriously disappeared. It's unlikely that she climbed out of the large box she was in without tipping it over, so we (I) think that one of the neighbors freed her and isn't 'fessing up to the crime. I sincerely hope she escaped the garage and isn't going to die in there!



2. TMax finally made 1st Class in Boy Scouts! It took a little longer than expected, but he's got pretty much all the requirements for Star done as well, so he'll get that in the fall. He has to be First Class for at least 3 months.


3. Looky what I got Wednesday!


I picked up Madden, who had a half-day of school, and decided to swing by the CarMax because they had one 2006 Honda Odyssey, 8 passenger van on the lot. I thought I would drive it just to see if I wanted to consider anything besides another Sienna. Let me tell you, it was love at first drive! The Master of the World, wonderful man that he is, said "Go ahead and buy it!" So I did, just as someone at another CarMax was trying to do the same thing, but the person actually test-driving it has dibs. We are very happy with it so far. I'm still getting used to it, but it feels great.

It just feels great to have a car again. And you know what's funny? Every time we put something in one of the cubbies, I think, wow, that could hold some knitting! lol. (But she got a Sienna, so we won't go there!)

4. American Heritage Girls Banquet/cookout was last night. I'm glad that's over---one more thing to check of m End-of-the-Year list. Next weekend is our campout. Then, I think I'm done.

5. But before the campout must come Graduation for Hitch. The in-laws arrive tomorrow; Hitch returns from Rome on Sunday; graduation is Tuesday.

6. Before all that....is today----chiropractor, hair cut for me, and house cleaning. There is also a visitation tonight and funeral tomorrow for a sweet lady from our parish who passed away suddenly this week. I tell ya, you've got to be ready. We just never, never know when the Good Lord is going to call us home!

7. So, on that note....lovely ladies have been reminding us that the Novena to the Holy Spirit begins today. Join me?

Thrifting

Inspired recently by Anna and Leila, I've been picking up some cute things when out at Goodwill or Value Village.

I cleaned off the end of my kitchen counter where we kept the mail and crap always accumulated. So now I have this nice little row of glass jars that I love. The larger one is supposed to hold pecans, which we are out of. I'm not sure what to use the other empty one for. Ideas?



One of my finds was this adorable little milk jug that is perfect for holding some blossoms. I picked the honeysuckle when we were at Mass today. I discovered that it is growing thick around the border of the parking lot with blackberries!!!! I'm going to have to keep an eye on those!



The Chinese plate is something I fell in love with and paid more for than I should have, but I love it. I love blue and white. I'm looking for a way to display it and have it available for use. It's pretty huge, 16", I don't know if I can find a plate stand large enough for it.



KT picked up this adorable little dress for a song at Plato's Closet today. She wants me to take off the sleeves for her before she wears it. I think the sleeves are lovely, but then, I'm just her mother. Unfortunately, you can't see all the lacy details on the dress. It looks like the Gunny Sacks we wore to prom in the dark ages.

Giveaway!

One of my favorite bloggers is having a little giveaway. It's a little, homey thing, just like her blog.

And she's a sweetheart. Although, I should say "they" because it's a team blog.

I'm putting her on my sidebar and hoping you'll stop by to say hi to Leila. You might even win something!

Boy Am I Tired!

I stayed up all night trying to download TMax's performance of Für Elise, but it wouldn't work. So we're fur-less this morning. And I'm tired, but not that tired because I didn't really stay up all night---I let the computer do that.

Yesterday was a lovely day. Maybe not very productive, but lovely. I went to the chiropractor, which made my neck feel soooo much better. I got a nap on the couch while I iced my neck and 4 boys played The Game of Life on the floor. I just want to know: does every Life spinner make that horrible squeaking sound??? KT was very sweet and went to pick up Madden after school, but he didn't actually need to be picked up until after football practice, so I was spared that. She also took her siblings and a couple of spares to Chik-fil-a for free chicken sandwiches at 5 and dropped off the Princess at swim practice. What was I doing all this time after my nap? Folding a dozen loads of laundry.

The best part of the day, besides the part where the Master of the World came home to me, was walking to the pool and back again to pick up Little Princess. The sun was shining; the sky was a gorgeous blue, and the temperature was delightfully cool---about 67 degrees. For walking, that's a great temperature. For swimming children, not so much.

Everyone keeps asking if we're done with school. No. I'm not sure we ever will be. We're trying desperately to get the essentials in, but it is difficult this time of year. Technically, our last day of school is June 1 or 2, but I think we'll keep doing a little every day to finish our books.

Can you hear the maniacal laughter and the sound of children weeping and wailing?

Yeah, me too.

How's that car search coming? you ask. Not well. Don't ask. I think we'll just rush out on Saturday and pick up any old thing we can find that'll seat 8. No problem.

But yesterday was a beautiful day, and I think today is going to be also.

Piano Recital

These brighten my day! TMax has been playing the piano since he was 7---that means 6 years. He enjoys it and so do we!

video


video

The first piece is Mr. Trumpet Man and the second, which is actually his third, is called Legend of the Phoenix and require 8 hands. That piece required extra practices every week at the home of his teacher because she has two pianos they could practice on.

The other one never uploaded; maybe I'll try again later. It Beethoven's Für Elise, and he played it beautifully.

~~~~~~~~

Last night, KT dropped off Hitch at The School for prom and picked up Madden. Then she went to babysit and DH came home early to take Pipster and LP to Webelos. (I bailed on that one!) Then Hitch and TMax went to swim practice. I had the whole house to myself, so I watched a chick flick and started a knitting project. Just another hat, but it felt sooo good to sit back and relax!

7 Quick Takes Friday



1. Graduation practice, graduation announcements---sitting on the kitchen counter---waiting for me to find the time! Don't even think about mentioning the fact that I should get off the computer and go do it. I'm still waking up!

2. Piano recital last night for TMax. He was awesome. He performed 3 pieces which I will upload later, after I finished uploading them on FB, which takes for.freaking.ever.

3. Every night this week there is something going on, besides swim team practice. I don't think we've had dinner all together once. I really don't like it when we miss our family dinners. It just doesn't seem right. I guess it will be like this until after Memorial Day when practices move to the mornings.

4. Hitch has prom tonight and Rome tomorrow. It will be strange not having him around for 8 days. We'll miss him, but I know he'll be having the time of his life with his friends.

5. If we're lucky, we'll find out today how much the insurance co. wants to give us for our car.

6. I haven't been out to my garden this week. Not since Saturday when I stopped by after getting the rental car. I think it's been raining some this week, but the plants probably do need water!

7. I don't think I have a number 7. My brain is just fried from all the things I've been trying to keep together this week. Last night, my back and neck were hurting---I just want to double my muscle relaxers and sleep for 12 hours, which is what the Dr. said would happen if I took the whole pill instead of half. Right now, that sounds really good. And when I wake up, all the household confusion will be over, right?

I hope your Friday is serene and relaxing!

More Wreckage...

It seems like the phone calls related to an accident and insurance are constant. And that's just the ones I'm getting. And I kindly have each of them call my dear husband because I don't really understand what they're saying.

Is it the bump on my head, or just stupidity? Hmmm, I suppose part of it could be due the the muscle relaxers.

Actually, my brain is kind of fuzzy this week, but I really think it's due to the overwhelming scheduling logistics of having KT and Hitch out of school and wanting to use the car for various, totally legitimate, not silly reasons, and my usual appointments and errands.

Next week should be MUCH better with Hitch off to Rome for his senior class trip. That, and I think we'll be done with all end-of-the-year activities. I'll be able to sit back, relax, and enjoy the swim team chaos!

Yesterday, the younger three trekked to the auto body shop with me to clean out the Sienna and say goodbye. It was so sad. I mean, I know it's just a car and all, and we're extremely lucky to be uninjured (so say all the experts who see this sort of thing regularly), but I just wanted to sit and caress the seats. I love my car. I just have to get a new one just like it. But it will probably be a different color, and while it may be almost exactly the same, it will seem like an imposter every time I get in! Sigh.

I'm off to do my short, intense workout, and get ready for another day of activities that require expert coordination and military precision---including getting Hitch's braces off just in time for graduation!

Time to Breathe?

We had a little breathing space last week---after co-op drama ended and before swim team started. Of course, the breather ended with a bang, and now we're officially into the swim season and a new kind of busy.

Last night was the annual Ice Cream Social where we (re)learn all the ropes about practices, volunteering, and meet the coaches. Tonight practices start----3 different practice times, back and forth to the pool to pick up and drop off and basically getting nothing done for 3 hours. But then, I'm a Mean Mom and I often make my kids march themselves up there on their own 2 feet!

We're still cleaning up the "wreckage" from last week. I don't know how long we'll be in vehicular limbo. The body shop is going to start disassembling our car today under the assumption that it's not totaled. I'll really be shocked if its not, but repairing it is certainly the best option, financially speaking.

My chiropractor definitely could see the signs of whiplash in his exam yesterday and a worsening of my neck problems. Hooray. Aside from that, though, I haven't had too much pain or soreness from the accident. I did a lot of sleeping on Friday and Saturday, and a lot of weeping on Sunday for various reasons. I think the weepiness must have been a symptom, too, not just the fact that it was Mother's Day.

It looks like a beautiful day today and I'm so thankful for it and beautiful kids to spend it with. Hitch is out of school already, along with KT, so I have them all here except Madden. I'm also scheduled for Adoration this morning and you have no idea how much I am looking forward to that! It has been far too long since I had a regular, weekly date with my Savior.

Have a Bee-Yoo-ti-ful Spring Day!

7 Quick Takes Friday



1. We're a little sore today. Not renting a car until tomorrow and just taking the day to relax, read, maybe walk to the pool if the weather cooperates.

2. I just discovered P-Dub's love story, "Black Heels to Tractor Wheels" the other day. I plan to finish reading it today. It's a great story. You should check it out, but be warned, you might not be able to put it down. Or turn it off since it's on the computer. Unless you print it out. You know what I mean!

3. KT is coming home this afternoon! I'm so glad she'll be home for the summer. And I'm extra glad that her roommate had already planned to give her a ride today. Of course, if I were planning to pick her up today, yesterday might not have happened.

4. I remembered this morning that I forgot to go pick up our weekly milk and eggs from our favorite farmer yesterday. In our rush to go berry picking, I completely forgot it was Thursday. We'll have to make do with the eggs we have; I can't go back to store-bought eggs.

5. Just because it's May and Mary's month:



6. I think I'll have plenty of time today to finish the last couple of rows on the shawl I'm making. I might have to cast on a new project from my stash.

7. Pray for me this weekend because I'm supposed to sing a duet at Mass on Sunday. It's beautiful, but nerve-wracking. I get to spend the first half of Mother's Day feeling nauseated. I know I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me, but sometimes I think my standards are a little higher than His. ;-)

A Day to Remember



After lots of days of rain and lots of longing to go strawberry picking , we finally had enough of a break in the weather to go. The farm is near UGA so we were going to either take KT with us, or just visit afterwards. Because of her exam schedule we ended up picking her up post-exam and going back to her place to load a bunch of her stuff in the car since she's coming home tomorrow (!) after her last exam.



It was a lovely day for strawberry picking---any later in the day and it would have been way too hot.


The four of us had a lovely time looking at the animals, picking a bucketful of delicious berries each, and playing in the "cornbox" was the most fun. Like a sandbox, only cornier.




They had a lot of fun in there and everyone took a turn getting buried. Except maybe the Little Princess because Pipster immediately threw a bucket of corn on her face, none too gently, and she decided she didn't like that game! Small wonder.


Children of the Corn

After berries and fun we headed for Athens to eat lunch and pick up KT. Loaded up the car and headed home. It was a very pleasant, though slightly longer drive home, listening to the ipod and eating the occasional strawberry, when:

The shattering conclusion to our trip.

Just 2 miles from the safety of our driveway! (We're all fine, except for maybe a little whiplash.) We were rear-ended by a Dodge Ram pulling a (mercifully empty) trailer. And of course we hit the car in front of us, too, since he hit us so hard.

KT, I'm afraid your boxes may be full of shattered glass....and you should shake out those clothes and shoes carefully before you wear them!)

Airbags did NOT deploy, which is surprising considering the severity of the hit, so I hit my head on the steering wheel and the paramedics recommended a trip to the ER just to get checked out since the dude totally destroyed the back end of my car. So my children had to see this:

That's not blood on my neck, just a tag on the collar!

I don't know why they had to take a picture, but there it is. I thought it was way too much in the way of precautions, and I felt so sorry for the very apologetic young man who hit us. He was pretty devastated when they put me on the stretcher, bless his heart. And he had to drive all the way home to Alabama after that.


That's our rear window all over his hood, and in his cab, too!

I'm fine, though. All my xrays and CT scans came out negative. I just have a big ole goose egg on my forehead, and lots of drugs for the pains that they tell me are coming! Children seem to be fine, although they may be a little sore, too, down the road.


Laudate Dominum, y'all! God is good.

Rain, Rain, Go Away!

If we hadn't had a partly sunny day yesterday, I think I'd be going crazy. We've been getting some serious downpours here. The ground is completely saturated and it's not even getting a chance to dry out between rainstorms.

The bright spot in that bit of news is that no one is begging me to take them to the pool, so I can stay home and get some work done. Crap.

But seriously, after I finish this little bit of work, which is really just throwing my readers a bone so they'll come back, I'm going to catch up on entering grades into my homeschool Tracker. I have quite a bit of catching up to do there, but I'm not feeling so bad after talking to a friend who just put her first quarter paperwork in the mail to Seton today!

So, I'm good, because if I had to gather papers, find an envelope, address it, stamp it, and take it to the post office it would take me for. freaking. ever. too!

In other news, there's a possibility that we have chicken pox here. The Pipster annnounced it this morning. He's had spots for several days and didn't bother to mention it. He's obviously not sick, and there aren't very many of them, so I'm taking a wait-and-see approach. I was wrong a couple of years ago---what I thought was the pox was just mollescum---these look different, more red around the blister, but he's popped all the blisters, so I can't be sure. He says they're not mollescum because he's the one who had them and is intimately familiar with the appearance. Of course, it might explain TMax's unexplained malaise the past couple of days, so I'm awondering if he'll get blisters in the next day or so.

Okay, I'm outta here to get some homeschool work done. Usually by this time of the year I have a pretty good handle on what we're doing next year and am getting ready to place orders. Not this time. I'm way behind and I'll probably get stuck in the summer rush and linger in backorder purgatory for weeks after school starts.

One of the main advantages to having schooled so many children is that I have plenty of curricula to work with if that happens. Except for TMax, he definitely needs some new texts. Like Geometry for next year. I do prefer to get orders in early, if I can.

I have a pretty good idea of what we're doing and what we're dumping for next year. In fact, we've already switched TMax's history to something we'll spend next year completing. The same goes for Pipster's english. We started a new book and I went ahead with the 5th grade version so we'll be that much farther ahead in the fall.

Have a Wacky Wednesday! I am.

Saturday at the High


Pipster reminded us that Saturday was the First Saturday and practically begged us to go to the museum since it was free. It would be nice if the children begged us to take them to Mass for First Saturdays, but I'm happy that my 10 year-old wild man wanted to go to a museum.

A little Monet made my day!

They have a new Louvre exhibit with some very interesting pieces. It was not as exciting as the one we went to in September. Sadly, we missed the last exhibit because it was only here for six months.


St. Sebastian---the arrow holes, which you can't see here, look like they were made with pencils.



Anyway, we spent a little more time in the main section and hit some floors that we missed last time because everyone was falling apart from hunger. What is it about culture that makes everyone so darn hungry all the time? We had the same problem this Saturday.

Giovanni Bellini---Madonna and Child

Veiled Rebekah---amazing work with marble!


Hugues Merle---Maternal Love


Renoir---Still Life with Apples (no kidding)


Sorry, didn't get the title of this one!

Let me tell you, few things make me miss my mom more than going to an art museum. She used be in ecstasies over some things. I feel the same way, myself, although I don't have the luxury of lingering over pieces, yet.

Then there is this little house outside that I had never paid much attention to. Until we walked past it yesterday and the children were talking about the different angles. I thought it was flat until I walked passed it.




And it followed me. It looked like it was on a turntable. I took a video, but you can't see it very well in the video. If you walk far enough, you can see that it's not flat and it's not actually turning. It's kind of cool.



Thanks for joining us on this little tour! Have a great Monday!

Rest in Peace, Gloria

We had, as the Pipster put it, our First Fish Flush today. Gloria, our first and only Betta fish, died yesterday.

I knew she was a goner all week. We changed her water and suddenly she wasn't eating. First, I found her lying on the bottom of the tank next to this little hill. I never knew fish could lie down!

Then she seemed to spend most, if not all, of her time perched between the leaves of her beloved plastic plant. When I fed her, she tried to go eat, but she was swimming sort of lopsided. Then she'd head back to her perch.

More and more lopsided swimming, then none. Just perching. (No pun intended)

Last night she was belly-up on the bottom of the tank, so we had a little funeral today.

The Little Princess cried. Everyone else thought it was kind of cool.

7 Quick Takes Friday



~~~1~~~

Co-op drama is over! The two plays last night were adorable. The kids did a good job (especially my TMax). It's a huge challenge to put together a drama production (or 3) that allows all the children time onstage. It's complicated by the fact that we don't have school, and therefore, rehearsals, every day. They only get to rehearse once a week for 8 weeks. Then it is showtime.

Another complication is that we have several actors for each roll. This time there were as many as 4! Usually we have the children bring in their own costumes and make them as similar as possible, but this year we thought it was important to have them share costumes so that the audience could keep track of the characters and not spend the time during the scene trying to figure out who they were! That's why I and my helper ended up sewing half a dozen tunics for The Road to Emmaus and 8 skirts for The Smallest of All. Plus there were shawls to be provided, neckerchiefs, collar & sash for the priest, a jacket for the policeman Jacomet.

I'm glad that's over!

~~~2~~~

A couple of pictures. I didn't take many, but that won't be a surprise to some of you. OTOH, I did play around with the settings on my camera and FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER was able to get decent pictures from a seat in the audience!









~~~3~~~

We've been out to our garden for the past few days to water. It's pretty neat, although I'm not sure my little seedlings will survive. We started with seeds indoors, and what looked great at home, now looks pretty pathetic in the bed. They did look better yesterday than the day before, so I have hope, but some things need to be replaced and I still have room to plant more, so we are going out today to buy seedlings!



There are some pretty nice looking gardens here. Serious experts. Some novices, like myself, and a lot of people in the middle. These are a few shots to show you the layout and what a couple of people have done with theirs. The one with the pretty bean-pole set-up is interesting. They have "planted" terra cotta pots next to their seedlings. The pots are filled with water and the saucer is placed on top as a lid and it continuously keeps the roots damp as the water seeps out of the pot. Very interesting trick that I've never heard of, and unless they're always there right before I am, the dirt in their garden is always damp.



The other amazing one is a serious tomato and bean growing contraption, I guess. They even have a soaker hose set up. (There's a hose and spigot there for everyone to use which is very handy. No lugging watering cans back and forth.) There are also quite a few people who have marked off their beds with string for square-foot gardening.






In case you're wondering, there's not a closeup of my garden because there's really not much to see. The seedlings are so much smaller than the ones that others bought from the nursery. I hope I'll have more to show later in the season!

~~~4~~~

I have a lot of reading to do this week(end). I'm finishing up The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Perilous Journey that I heard about from Melissa. I also snagged all the books in the library that were written by her. If you know me, you know I'm a huge Laura Ingalls Wilder fan. KT and I read a few of the books about Rose growing up, but we never delved into the "prequels" about Laura's mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. Now the stupid publisher has decided to dumb down all the books and it's hard to find originals. So, I got all they had at my library that Melissa Wiley wrote. I'll probably have to order a few that my branch didn't have.

~~~5~~~

My 7 Quick Takes have been anything but quick the last couple of weeks. I guess because I'm putting a whole week's worth of posts into it. I'm hoping that blogging will happen more frequently now that the sewing marathon has ended!

~~~6~~~

In case you didn't hear the news on FB---we have another Georgia Bulldog in the family! Hitch has made his decision finally. We're happy; KT is thrilled that he'll be joining her; and we hope he'll be happy, too.



Go Dawgs!

~~~7~~~

I think I need a new project to work on. Lol! I'm going to piece the back of the Little Princess's quilt before I put the sewing machine back downstairs, and then I can start putting it together. I'm not happy that she said she wants to change the color of her room now! I told her it can wait until the quilt is finished and then we can think about it. What that means is that it can wait a couple more years because whatever she chooses is what she'll have to live with until she moves out!

~~~~

Have a great weekend, everyone! Go visit Jen's for more Quick Takes.
