my baby girl's a high school teacher!

Wow.....i just can't believe this! my baby girl is teaching high school....and not just at any high school....MY high school!.....yep....the very one that i graduated from so very many years ago!!! the school has a very diverse population which is why she choose it....and seems to like it so far! teaching freshman english is not easy....anywhere you teach it! i can't stand Shakespeare....nor do i find reading the great gatsby fun! gimme a trashy novel anytime over the classics!

last weekend mcgee and i spent the day together....we hung out at RedLead here in st. louis....and took a class....made some funky stuff....and then went shopping! that always gets us into trouble....especially with mr. butt......never fails...he finds out....(course...i'm the one to spill my guts!....daddy was was catholic....feel guilty all the time...whether i've done something wrong or not!)

just spent the last two days working on the rolodex swaps for creative escape! can't believe there is only 2 weeks to get everything done and packed up! not quite sure i will make the deadline....however i will certainly try!
want to make some little gifts for all the sweet girls i've met....hopefully can pull myself away from QVC on tuesday....and work on them!

well....everyone take good care of themselves....have a little cocktail...relax....

i love my life,

Meet Comet

this is mr. comet......finicky....yappy, and skiddish! yep....he's also a Cairn Terrier......i truly believe he has some silky terrier in him.....however the kennel and breeder disagree! this was comet trying to bite the water coming out of the ground from the pool (mr. butt was backwashing).....

the puppies just went to the groomers....will try to post updated photos! i just love my puppies.........and i love my life.

Meet Apollo

This is the littlest man in my life! Meet Apollo......yep....mcgee named him after the character on the Rocky movie!!!

He is just 3 years a Cairn Terrier....and has the best personality! He also has a skin condition that makes his skin peel constantly (like he has had a bad sunburn!)....he also has cushings.....note how chubby he is!!! we just give him extra love....and enjoy all our time with the puppies!! next up, Comet!

trying to add photos

This is the loft....rex just painted this room...and we are almost finished with it Posted by Picasa

i thought i was on a roll!

well.....thought i was anyway! my girlfriend Cricket emails me....while prepping for her weekend getaway...with instructions for adding links! well......try as i might.....they look like they should be someplace.....however not where i intended them!

yesterday i spent the day with little miss mcgee (yep....that's the daughters nickname)....and we had a blast! we took a class at an art store....and i have the alcohol inked hands to prove it! not gonna elaborate on what we did.....may just be a surprise for some CE girls! ......anyone curious???? hope so!!! then off for some shopping! we hit the Central West End.....where all the "cool" people looking for some "urban" furniture. mr. butt (yep.....that's rex the dh's nickname) painted some rooms upstairs....and then we decided it would be less expensive to just paint the furniture vs. buying is now BLACK!! it looks pretty cool! the study is now deep red.....with black furniture! looking for a funky chair to go in there.....would like to find one that has red, orange, brown and black fabric!....something really wild! **if you have seen one.....send me the info****
i took a few photos of the rooms....the loft is "peanut shell" and the study is "stadium red" to just finish them up!

also wanted to again thank my secret CE sister....she ROCKS!!! she sent this incredible travel journal.., t-shirt for me and a treat jar for my little puppies! i was just so happy to unwrap the whole thing....apollo is just waiting patiently for me to give him another treat! where's comet? no where to be found....happens all the time when i get out the camera!

guess i better get my self's 1030am on sunday....and i haven't accomplished anything! still have a lot to finish before packing for Arizona! it's just 23 more days til "i'm leaving on a jet plane....don't know when i'll be back again" i can't figure out how to get it off italics! damn....this is like being a first grader!!! some many challenges! any one have a 7 yr old that could help me! they would know what to do!

yep....i love my life!

well..welcome to my life. I love my life....craziness and all. Perhaps i should start with a little about my life. rex and i have been together for over 30 years....yep...i said 30 years. we met when we were just kids...fell in love and are still in love. he is my soul mate and best friend. together we have had triumphs and trials...and survived each of them.
we have a extraordinary 23 year old daughter, Erin. she just received her master's degree in English...and is teaching high school. What determination...teaching high school in this day and age.

i am going to need some help from all my friends with this....haven't even figured out how to post a photo....sooooo
