And we're off

We are officially looking for a new home. I started this blog or a semblance of it when I bought the first home 5 years ago. I loved updating the repairs and woes of course. We haven't visited things in person yet but the few contenders on the top of list all have their things.
#1 Kirkwood home, lots of flair, possible huge slope backyard which wouldn't jive with me gardening, house and children falling all the way down. Perhaps I could get some landscape advice pre purchases I have a bunch of landscape folks available to me.
#2 Webster. Weird access to backyard, from the house you pass the drive and then get to the gate to let your dogs out. I'd rather have 3 sides of fence than that. There are a mighty lot of trees that would be a bitch to get Webster to agree to get them down Fun possibility. They have an addition with a flat roof. Would Boo go for a greenroof? If anything I can try him out on the tray system verus the whole big deal with did at work. I imagine it wouldn't so much work for my gardening but who knows.. we can explore. Also that addition could also always get a second floor if we needed more space for our 1 invisible kid and the questionable follow up. Shoot I wouldn't mind being jewish jospheine baker but other half might not be so pro. My only strong feels is girls need sisters. But that may just me response to not having one. My perfect idea family would have two girls and a boy. My perfect family though would also be rich, have a great mixed set of friend for the kids and they'd really dig my religion ever with its lack of marketing and fun appeal.
Everything else doesn't seem like it needs mentioning, There are a few others in both locations. We shall see how it goes and how long it takes. I have my veggie bags so things may get relocated at some point cause you know me and my veggies. I want to be the farmer wife with the urban edge. Instead I'll just describe myself as handy with all and enough hobbies and craft to fill a life time.

Crazy Crazy says...

Tonight mom called. I didn't really want to talk but she's lonely and having Buby stress which is standard especially with our elders getting older and things worsening as they tend to do. Apparently Buby has a new helper and she is a good cook so Buby is eating again, her other two helpers were poor cooks.
Mom told me that the ladies keep wanting Mom to go to their strip shows that they have to raise money for this or that. They also keep trying to show her pics of said shows. Yes, please show my mother pics of men and their junk... Mom is going to a baby shower for one lady's 17 year old daughter's baby and is worried there will be a stripper. Good lord. Have you all spewed soda on the screen yet. Sure, I'm not in touch with my inner city Philadephia old lady aides but I'd like to say that there will not be a nekkid black man at a baby shower for a 17 year old girl. If I'm wrong well, I'll eat some bacon and say three hail marys.
She also wanted to talk to me about CSI and people having latex caulk parties where they inject their lips. First off, CSI, not real... if so we'd solve every damn crime, second, if there are idjusts injecting caulk in their body all willy nilly it might be good to thin the herd, three I think she meant botox parties using something that wasn't botox. If anyone sends me an invite for a Latex Caulk Party, I'm going to hope that we're going to refinish their tub or that maybe they party with Buby's helpers and can't spell for shit.

Well its been a year...

Last year I learned how to crochet on MLK day. The goal was to make cat beds as my part of public service because animals are part of our community and they help those that adopt them. Well some pets do, some are clingy psycopaths. My animals help therapize me although I'd like a snooze button on Riley. So here it is a year later. I have made 4 cat beds, two round disk ones and two flat blankets. Its not an astronomical accomplish by any means but its something, a little something.

A new view...

I recently found that 3 of my coworkers have not read a book since college. I was completely shocked and learned I totally assumed people read after schooling or at least those who have gone to higher learning academies. Sure I may take a break from reading here and there but I assume that most people read at some point in a year. Maybe they've had a book on a night table for 6 months, maybe they have a book waiting to be read on some vacation etc but apparently this isn't true. I don't know why but this totally baffles me. I'm a daughter of a teacher who also used to volunteer at the library. Heck I used to volunteer at the library. Of course I was the good kid there on my own while other kids where there to serve to community service time for crimes unknown, I totally should have been corrupted but I'm too hard headed to be corrupted. I think my hard head is good at times but I probably should have had a more carefree time in my youth. Not much to say but I am just baffled by the zero reading people and am shocked at my own ignorance.
