What a week. A little update of all of the stuff swirling about...

Baby raccoons have been safely carted away by mummy and relocated to a nearby hollow tree. Mummy is approximately the size of a german shepherd.

I miss Kat. She comes back from the sand and sun in a couple of days. Our dear friend got married there! Weeeee. I'm sure she looked like a supermodel for the big day... can't wait to hear all about it and peruse pics.

Another friend got engaged last week - we've all been waiting for this for a while. Very exciting!

My dearest girl from the land of the west has 7 weeks left until my god daughter comes wailing out into the world. Can't wait to drink wine with my friend and kiss that wee baby. I have been slowly collecting up lovely and adorable baby things for her. I may have to spoil this tot a wee bit. Her older sister - and one of the most adorable children in the universe- had surgery yesterday, is home now and was a very brave gal. So proud of my Tater-tot.

My parents are the proud new owners of a lovely 40 foot Caliber. They will use the afore mentioned floating house to leave me next year...sobbing on shore waving pitifully and holding up their grandchildren in a vain attempt to make them turn around and come back. ;-)

Spartan is still my hero. I am so very heart burstingly proud of this man. It is 7.43 weeks till we run away to a tropical island... where I will insist we build a tree house and never return. I can't wait.

Six year old quote of the week;

My mother says to Roo, "You can run, but you can't hide..."
Roo says..."I can hide. But you can't run."

How true...

I can run but I can't hide. Once I got older than 12 my body lost it's ability to be able to hide well... from then on the game hide and seek became "sorta-hide until I know I have a good enough jump on the seeker"

I try to pretend that I'm furniture.

Slyde said...

That is a superb quote! i love it!

Melanie said...

I find it interesting, that the older we get, the more we start to act like the children that we were supposed to out-grow. I have an expensive sports car that I can't afford. My wife and I have a new puppy.

You want a tree house......YOU ROCK!

elizabeth said...

Slyde - kids, hey? Worth their weight in gold... but the pawn shop won't pay me. What's up with that?

Melanie - your time will come. Never thought mine would... but I must have done something good... (re link... lol)

Lotus - I know. It's way more fun being a kid as an adult. Did that make sense? It did when I thought it... hmmm.

B.E. Earl said...

I wanna live in a treehouse. Do you kids need a manservant?

Oh, and it's me and you in the next round over at Oookami Snow's joint. Game time, beeeeyatch!

elizabeth said...

Yeah sure - you're hired. But we will have to pay you in sand dollars. Cool?

Oh - you and me? Uh oh. Game on my wizard friend. Game on.

Houseboats. Tree houses. Is that considered alternative living? My life is boring in comparison. I want a skybox in RL.
Everybody's having babies of a sudden. There must be something in the air. I mean, besides legs. The government sprayed fertility mist on the salad bars at sizzler?
That would explain the raccoons. If I was a raccoon, I'd hit the all-you-can-eat section too. Especially during garbage strikes.
I can run, I can hide. I can scare the (*&%$) out of Roo. Boo!

"Approximately the size of a german shephard" - I love the way you write :)
