Arm warmers

I’m sorry for not posting more than I have. I have things on my mind that I don’t really want to talk about openly, out here, for everybody to see. So I’ve added a plugin to the site that allows me to set posts as viewable to registered members only. I also set up a nice registration page to stop the billions of spam bots that were registering and allowing me to have to verify all registration before they have access. I hate to have to be restrictive but, better safe then sorry…

Anyway!

Opening the Hot Pink iPod Nano.

Cassidy turned 10 yesterday. I still can’t believe that my little baby girl is TEN YEARS OLD. She had made plans to go to her dad’s house for the weekend, was counting down the days, then two days before the big day he called and said that his mother had died and he was too sad to have the party. She was pretty crushed (because of not getting to go down there, not because of the death which she actually hasn’t really responded to at all but that’s a whole other blog for a whole other time) and it left me with only two days to hustle some kind of celebration together. I had planned on doing all the shopping and party prep this weekend while she was gone. We ended up having her bff over for a Saturday night sleep over and went to see The Beverly Hills Chihuahua, decorated cake, had chocolate chip pancakes and all that good slumber party stuff.

Favorite presents? Pink iPod Nano, the wrist warmers from one of the outfits that her Nana and Papa gave her and the knock off American Girls doll that I found at Target for 1/10th the price of the actual American Girls dolls but can still wear all the AG stuff. YAY!

I’m really sorry my writing isn’t the LOLerific, punny, awesomesauce that it normally is. Sometimes I feel like I have this standard to live up to… people tell me they love to read the blog because of the writing but I’ve just not been in my groove lately. I really think that once I can get the ‘other stuff’ worked out, written down, out of my emotional pipelines I’ll be able to get back to my normal dorky self around here.

  1. Write however you want, it’s your blog! She’s growing up so fast. AHHHH. The look on her face is priceless there too. I went and registered as well.

  2. The nicest parties I had growing up were always the ones that were just thrown together willy nilly. (Yeah… I said willy nilly. And I’m not ashamed.) I hope you can figure out whatever’s on your mind soon.

  3. HEHEH Well, I was pregnant at 19 and had Cassidy a month after I turned 20 so I was (AND STILL AM!!) a young mom. I don’t FEEL like I’m old enough to have a 10 year old either! 😉

  4. Good luck getting everything figured out. Life is crazeh.

    Happy belated b-day to your daughter! She looks lovely! And congrats for keeping her alive as long as you have, that’s no easy feat. =)

  5. I was too lazy to log in to Flickr to comment on that photo of Cassidy.. That was just GREAT. Perfect!!

    Btw, your site is missing its TITLE! Get on that, woman!
