Just Around the Corner …

in Family, General

Spring, maybe even summer is around the corner … I HOPE –> but, there is snow in the forecast for early next week. SNOW!? It happens every year in May and every year I am surprised. Hmm …

green toys
I love this picture … I look at it and pretend it is summer.

The folks at Green Toys were kind enough to send Georgia MORE of their fab toys. This time she received the sand play set. I really wanted to get photos of the set all clean and lovely and Georgia all clean and lovely, but she didn’t have the patience for me … and I didn’t have the energy when they arrived. She hauled them straight outside, and put them to good use.

I love these toys. They’re good for the earth, good for your kids. Get some.

cooking lessons

She also has her Green Toys tea set out there too! In this photo, she’s giving ‘mud-pie’ lessons to her cousin Brandon. He’s younger and a man, so definitely in need of some direction in the ‘mud-pie’ department.

Good lord, would you look at that tu-tu? It’s filthy, ripped and worn on a daily basis. Sam’s been using those criss-cross ribbons in the front as handles during their WWF wrestling sessions on the trampoline.

don't you dare put your foot in there

It’s fabulous with the boots, don’t you think?

i like these boots

Georgia: What? What’s wrong with these boots with this tu-tu? I like them mom!

My tests are just around the corner too, a spinal tap on Tuesday, an ultrasound on Thursday. Now more than ever, I don’t want to wish my life away, but I just want them over and answers. ANSWERS.

    Snow? In May? Are you joking? I’d have to pack up and move! That’s just craziness.
    Georgia has quite the fashion sense! She must keep you busy.
    I’ll say a prayer for you while you wait on answers. Waiting is so hard.

    Yep…we got a TON of snow here in the past 2 days!! Sheesh!! You’d think i’d be used to our wierd weather by now, but nope, I was surprised too….so much for planting the garden this week!

  • Joi May 16, 2009, 1:01 pm

    Love Georgia’s attire! You need to go on Mystery Diagnosis – They will figure it out or the show can’t air :) There was one the other day that was diagnosed same as you and ended up something totally different & rare & he is practically symptom free now. Can’t remember what it was though, which is no help to you – something in his spine, i think.. If you want to know, I will do some researching. I am thinking of you & hoping you get the answers you need & more importantly the ones you WANT! Take care, my friend!!! GOOD LUCK!

    I love Georgia’s outfit… I think she and Roo have similar aesthetic styles.

    Hope you get some relief or at least answers.

    How cute!
    I had a friend who went to prom looking like that. Big Pink dress (ankle length) with LOTS of tulle, and big black boots underneath. What a classic 80s Madonna look!
