Once again our internet is on the fritz, so no uploading pictures for now.  In the meantime here is some of the randomness I like to call my life.

SG has decided she wants a pet rattlesnake.  After having a week-long discussion about the difference between wild animals and ‘pets’ she has decided a rattlesnake would make a great pet.  Nearly every morning I am confronted with “Mom, can I have a rattlesnake?  Can I, can I, can I?  Pweeeeeeeease!” 

SG has also discovered a long-lost wonder known as the New Kids on the Block.  KT (hi kt) sent me the NKOTB greatist hits album and SG and I put it in the other day while cleaning.  I walked in to find her dancing around in the living room with a few of her stuffed animal friends.  When little baby Joey Mcintyre’s song came on she even told me “mom, I like this song.”  She’s hooked.  hehehe

We are still waiting for a referral.  I have reason to believe we have been ‘penciled in’ for a baby, but all that really means is it will be within the next six weeks, maybe..  Hopefully.  I am hoping to travel this summer.

    Let’s keep hoping!! (for the referral of course- not NKOTB).

    I read this post early yesterday am before our marathon, and had ‘the right stuff’ stuck in my head for the first 5-6 miles. Luckily it eventually went away- I was getting a little worried that the ‘oh-oh-oh-oh-o’ was never going to leave!

    SG is too cute 🙂

    Hi Sarah – “Penciled in” – that’s so exciting! I hope you hear something very soon.

    I also had to respond to the comment you left over at our blog about your home visit – I was laughing out loud about your daughter (and the SW’s necklace) and it definitely makes me feel better to hear that! 🙂

    I’m not sure which I find more frightening, a rattlesnake or New Kids on the Block!
