I'm ready

to move. No we don't have a house yet, nor have we started even looking. But I'm sure we will find one. So I've been grabbing boxes from work and I've started packing. I hate hate hate the packing and moving process, and I've done it enough in my very short life to be skilled at it. I've done it the dead of winter and the heat of summer. I done it in the rain. Somehow, though, there so many last-minute things that you don't think about. I plan on jumping the gun this time. Just to be ready. I'm getting excited about this move just won't be another apartment. Do you know how long I've waited for that?

For jon jon

Girlfriend has something to say about those Rams. It's quite important.

When at the park

It's necessary to make going down the slide a family affair. There must be hugs, high fives, and pound its. Unless, in Abby's case, you're too young to give a proper high five. As AJ said, "Abby didn't open her hand for a five." Give her time lil buddy. Give her time.

Old man toothpaste

Conversation 1,660, 899 with hubby.

Me: How was the dentist? Did you get a free toothbrush?
Hubby: Yeah, but I think they changed my toothpaste?
Me: Did they give you old man toothpaste.
Hubby: [Looking incredulous] Yeah, I think they did give me old man toothpaste.
Me: Did they give you Sensodyne?
Hubby: Yeah! I think they did give me Sensodyne. That means I am an old man!

Sexy chocolate

A typical conversation between my husband and I.

Me: I don't want to watch Jurassic Park.
Hubby: When the dinosaurs come, I'm going to take you to them.
Me: No, they'll eat me. I'm quite tasty.
Hubby: What about me?
Me: I taste like chicken.
Hubby: Well, I taste like chocolate.
Me: Dinosaurs don't like chocolate.
Hubby: I'm sexy chocolate. They like sexy chocolate.

Hubby: 1 Wife: 0

Recipe: candy corn bark

It sounds too good and rich to be true, but I'm going to make it anyway. And you should too. Or buy it!

Signs it's (almost) halloween

Discovered fun Halloween decorations at Christmas Traditions no less. This year, I'm leaning toward vintage, especially signs. Here are some of my favorites.

Little creep

I couldn't videotape Abby and not get her funny little crawl/roll. The girl is mobile! What you don't see in this video is that she actually started out in the living room. Eventually she does get tired and stranded and lifts her hands and feet and yells to come get her. Now. So demanding that one.

And back again

After a major cold, almost seriously passing out from a blood donation, busy work (we had to let some people go), and a trip to visit some family in Colorado, I'm back. I'm inspired. I'm excited! To launch what I hope is a new leaf for this blog, here's a video of Abby (aka Girlfriend) blowing you some raspberries and giving you a couple of her signature grins.
