No, sorry - I still haven't gotten my Hello Kitty station wagon. Husband and I are on different car pages, so to speak, and he's proving difficult to wear down. In other news, however
I think this is an appropriate final photo for the year. I may be collapsed in the snow but I'm still wearing the proper color! We went sledding earlier this week and the sun was brilliant and everyone's laughter echoed off the trees. We finished with hot cocoa at Permanent Magenta's house.Luckily, Junior didn't start throwing up until after we arrived in Maine yesterday to see a friend and have dinner with Nan and Grandpa. We exhanged gifts in the Border's parking lot and turned right around for the three hour ride home, convinced if the police stopped me for speeding I'd get an escort rather than a ticket. Like that time in Dublin when we got stopped at a checkpoint and I pulled the bottle of milk out of Junior's mouth as soon as the officer leaned into the car. WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!! is a great way to get immediately waved on.
Somehow it was a peaceful journey on the Vomit Comet, with Junior sleeping in between puking episodes and Juniorette reading her Ramona book and holding a bag for Junior. Me - breathing through it all and being grateful that what should have been a nightmare really wasn't that bad. Sometimes I really wonder where my amazing kids came from. I wish all of you health, inspiration and contentment in the new year.
I need to cover a blah lampshade - love this one!
Just finished this
In case you're the only one not to realize this, here's is Pantone's color of the year. Whatever, it's my color of the year all the time!
