I think I have my share of cute "stuff" and I feel like a millionaire. When it gets too dusty I even enjoy washing, drying and rearranging it. Almost everything has at least one chip missing which is good, because if it gets broken, it's not the end of the world. As much as I like my cute "stuff", if a friend needs a piece to go with their "stuff", they can have it. Easy peasy.

Here are his girls at lunch.
This is a portion of Janelle's new family, I see Dustin, Jen, Jameka and Evil Dick, the rest are on the other side of the lunch counter.
Yes, it's true, our family has some sordid secrets. Especially the secret regarding my oldest son, you see he is an addict. Don't think we haven't tried to get help for him because we have. Everyone in the family has talked to him, we've even tried an intervention, but no luck.
I have to admit, parent's hate to you know, but I was an enabler, when he had hit rock bottom I helped, he brought two little bitches to the house, Danielle and Janelle, and they were little bitches, they carried on day and night, squealing and fighting, trashing my house and making it smell like a pig sty. But I grew to love these bitches, Danielle moved on finally, but Janelle is still here. She wound up pregnant of course, but I drew the line this time, none of these babies would live in my house and so far so good, they are living behind the barn, it's hot out there but I go out and mist them from time to time, they'll get by. Maybe you can tell my son's addiction is not drugs or alcohol, it's worse, much worse it is pigs, hogs, what ever you want to call them. If it were drugs the chaos could be contained the secret hidden in a drawer or closet. But at the back of my new property it is pig pandemonium and I haven't heard of rehab for pigsters. Do you think Promises will take him? Where is Amy Winehouse going?

I really love my new bathroom, it was awful to begin with, not that I don't like John Deere green walls, just not so much in my bathroom, there was some really big moldy tile around the tub and demolition was dusty and wild. I rewired, then put bead board up, I cheated and used the 4 x 8 sheets, added more lights a new tub, flooring etc., Just to get to the point where I could put out all of the cute little doo dads I love so much and have been hoarding for quite a while. I got the mirror with pink and blue swan decal at the garage sale in Oklahoma City that they have yearly. Usually tons of good bargains are to be had by all. There is a guy there named Robert, who has the best stuff but I can't remember the charity he volunteers for. My friend Robie and I would to go to this sale religiously, but alas the past few years we've missed it and I've missed going with her. I don't have any cabinets in the bathroom yet, just a bookshelf with baskets. I need to think about that some more. The little prints reflected in the mirror came from an Anthropologie catalog and I think they are so cool!

Usually everyday around here is filled with a happy assortment of random events, even stuff we try to make a rigid schedule for will unfold in ways we don't foresee. Due to a huge personal loss of which I don't seem to be able to process very well or at all, I am throwing myself into lots of little projects. These little things and the huge support and love of my family are helping me cope, something that I am eternally grateful to each and everyone for. They know who they are and I hope they know just how very much I love them.
Now here's the tricky part; explaining how my strange little dog house , built for strange little dogs helps me deal. Well...................... i don't know..........it just does and today is good and tomorrow will be better.
