Rake Mice & Sunglasses at Night

Wow time flies.........I've tried to post before, but blogger loves to upload about 425 of one picture, so I said "grrrr" and gave up.

So what's up along my Coast? Well.... let's see.

1) My bestestfriendinthewholewideworld was going to Illinios to see the estranged hubby BUT that got canned quickly when his parents said "If she came ...." well, you can imagine. So he's still letting the 'rents dictate his life. She may move to Raleigh.

2) The weather is nice.....65-70 daytime; about 40 at night. The leaves have really colored out nicely. I'm still running my AC from time to time.

3) My stepDad and baby bro are in CA visiting the middle movie star brother. Then off to Vegas for a day or two.

4) Tom is going to TX for about 3.5 weeks to help his brother with some overwhelming plumbing jobs........cha-ching.....let's hope he sends da money home!!

and the greatest news........

Miss T going to NC School of the Arts in February for 3 days of dance classess WOO HOO! Can you say Proud Momma!!!

She is so excited! Her ballet teacher chose some of the top dancers in her age group plus is taking all of the Seniors that can go. We'll go up on a Thursday afternoon, classes will be promptly at 8am on Fri & Sat with a show on one of those nights....there's also a class early Sunday too. That's gonna be one tired kid!

What will I do?????

Duh.........SHOP!

Now about my caption.....

Last weekend Tom and I picked Miss T up from my mom's and as we were driving down the road I noticed the lights on the truck were very dim (9pm). I mentioned it but TnT didn't notice a difference. Then I tried the High Beams and said "hmmm they look dim too". Then Miss T looks at me and says "MOM! You've got your sunglasses on" and I swear I don't remember clipping them on!

We had a good laugh on that one.

Then this past weekend I said to Miss T that it was time for her to learn some other cooking methods.....she is a rice and gravy lover, and that was her request for lunch. So I said to her, "Come over here and I'll teach you how to Rake Mice".......I never knew I said it till she started laughing and repeated it....."Did I really say 'rake mice'?".......

Someone send me a box of Calgon!

To keep from uploading all those pic's...write your entry first then add pic's. Go back to compose and position the photo's where you want.

BTW-would you like a Template for your Blog? I'm in an Artsy mood. Let me know-use my SunnyBethe@AOL addy.

I actaullyhave the code for the a couple or Tahnksgiving ones ready to go : D

That is fantasic news about Miss T. She must be a great little dancer. Ooooo...Just a thought, how about a Background for your blog using blues, & a tiny dancer theme
