Okay, real post

Finally updated Sigs ‘n More. Three animal sigs, three people/doll sigs, 2 misc ones. And, new layout. I went with the Midnight Faery layout 🙂 Looks really good, IMO. Speaking of looks: TM2TS will be getting a new look in about a month. I’ll be incorporating Halloween and Breast Cancer Awareness Month into one. That means lots of pink, so be warned, :lol:. I’m working on the theme now. Well, hashing out ideas. I got 3 new templates from Marina, so I’ve got plenty of temps to work with. If you’ve got ideas, toss ’em to me, please 🙂

Here’s what I did yesterday:

*does a little dance* THERE’S FOOD IN MY HOME!! *dances some more*

*snort* Okay, I’m all better. It just feel so good to have edibles in the apartment, and know that the kids can finally eat. 🙂 We got E NINE Gerber graduate meals. 🙂 Along with some “puffs” of strawberry and pineapple. They got bananas and apples, and I got fruit juices, like orange-strawberry-banana, and even some V8 Strawberry-Banana juice stuff. Full serving of veggies and fruits in each 8 oz serving. I like that 🙂 We did good. Spent $200 in groceries, but worth it, and so needed 🙂

Oh, and Josh and I’s 5th anniversary is in 11 days, his parents 26th anniversary is in 8 days, and my sister’s birthday is in 6 days. Oh yeah, and Jesse’s birthday is exactly 3 weeks from today. O.o Oh boy. But, speaking of anniversaries, we almost didn’t make it. Josh and I had a big blow-out. Bigger than normal. Hormones due to PMS, stress-induced mania (bi-polar), mania-induced panic attack, and one wrong comment from Josh just made me lose it completely and totally. The fight was 90% my fault. I regret so much of what I said, but I did, through that, learn Mark and Julie are amazing friends. The fight happened on Sunday night. Julie helped me out, and Mark helped out Josh. We saw Mark on Monday, when we went grocery shopping. Guy looked exhausted. Wanna hear why? He woke up at 2:30 am worrying about us. AWW!! I almost hugged him, but he was on the clock, and I didn’t want to chance getting him in trouble. If he comes over tonight (should, since Jule’s is closing), I plan on squeezing him, then admonishing him for walking around shirtless. Nobody but Jules wants to see Mark’s naked belly, *snort*.

My Father-Daughter Dance Song

I don’t care if it’s not original. If it can make Josh cry, I know it’s the perfect song:

Look at the two of you dancing that way
Lost in the moment and each others face
So much in love your alone in this place
Like there’s nobody else in the world
I was enough for her not long ago
I was her number one
She told me so
And she still means the world to me
Just so you know
So be careful when you hold my girl
Time changes everything
Life must go on
And I’m not gonna stand in your way

But I loved her first and I held her first
And a place in my heart will always be hers
From the first breath she breathed
When she first smiled at me
I knew the love of a father runs deep
And I prayed that she’d find you someday
But it still hard to give her away
I loved her first

How could that beautiful women with you
Be the same freckle face kid that I knew
The one that I read all those fairy tales to
And tucked into bed all those nights
And I knew the first time I saw you with her
It was only a matter of time

But I loved her first and I held her first
And a place in my heart will always be hers
From the first breath she breathed
When she first smiled at me
I knew the love of a father runs deep
And I prayed that she’d find you someday
But its still hard to give her away
I loved her first

From the first breath she breathed
When she first smiled at me
I knew the love of a father runs deep
Someday you might know what I’m going through
When a miracle smiles up at you
I loved her first

Oh Snap

Yeah, no update yesterday. No good news right now for today. Josh’s truck, yesterday, was having fits, and then this morning, car was low on oil (though it had just been checked a couple days ago, and no oil leaks detectable), and didn’t want to start. O.o Gah! Not a good day at all. We’re hoping at least the car, barring oil changes, will hold off until tax return. Without the car, we’re screwed, because the truck isn’t big enough for all of us. Hell, it’s barely big enough for Josh and Mark, 🙁

Other than that, though, things are going pretty smoothly. Potty training stalled after Madi went to Josh’s parents. I’ve pretty much said that now she’s not going over there until they can learn to abide by the rules that we’ve set up for her, because she refused for 3 days every time to sit on the potty. Then, she started going constantly in her panties, so we’ve had to adjust the time. Any idea how tiring it gets having to get up and down every 30 minutes for her?

Slowly working on new items for Sigs ‘n More. It’s not going very well though. I get inspired, and *boom* lose it so quickly. I feel so bad, because I haven’t updated in so long. I’m working on a new design, well, a design I’ve downloaded, but still, and hoping maybe that’ll inspire something out of it. We’ll see, I guess.

Hectic Thursday

That was the scene at about 1:30 pm yesterday. I was standing on my patio. It was after the all clear, and firefighters were setting up fans to air out the apartment. No, it wasn’t mine, but our neighbors in 7 (we’re 5, if that clears anything up).

We had only one injury, and that was one of Mark’s friends running in to help get it out. It was a grease fire, and it slattered onto him. He’s got 3rd degree burns, yes, but just little spots (none bigger than a quarter/Sackajewa dollar size).
