What Moving Does To Me

This was me yesterday:So, I worked my tail off all day long, and now here I am today: Unlike this kitty, I don't have the luxury of passing out... maybe I should go get some toothpicks to prop my eyes open. Oh, wait. Did I already pack those?

Earning his keep

So, a few days ago Weston spilled millet all over the kitchen floor. I wasn't that sad, because lets face it - even a health nut like me can't figure out much to do with millet. (Although as a complete aside, I do love millet bread.) But I was irritated with the mess, so I decided that Weston could just clean it up himself. I got out the light cordless vacuum and let him go at it. You would have thought I'd given him a triple scooped ice cream cone. He was in heaven! He's always had a fascination with vacuums that I will never understand, but I figure I should use it to my advantage. He actually did a pretty good job. Here's the little guy in action...You may notice that all the chairs had been moved - that's because he wanted to vacuum under the kitchen table too!I figure he's the perfect guy for the job, because he's still short enough to almost fit under there... besides, look at that happy face! He even went to investigate a few times when it seems something had become stuck...I could hardly believe how well things were going, until I found him drinking on the job.He had so much fun that he even went to the effort of putting toys away that were in his path! I'm not going to lie, it was marvellous. When we were all done I went to quickly to do something in the office, and when I emerged, this miraculous sight was mine to behold:For the first time in his entire life, Weston crawled up on the couch, and put himself to sleep! Yeah, I'm still waiting for a repeat on that one. :) Needless to say, it was a good morning.

We The People

So, I recently started a blog dedicated solely to issues of liberty... but I'm not really sure if anyone reads it, except Julie (thank you for commenting). And, I have been rather busy and focused on moving, a new baby, etc. which is the other reason I haven't posted very many things over there. However, there is a very cool one minute video that I posted today on For The Love of Liberty that I think is inspiring. Why? This graphic says it all:I have felt distraught and overwhelmed about the direction our country for quite some time, and simply cannot sit idly by any longer! I got this graphic off of a website that I just discovered today. If you agree that we should focus on growing business in the private sector (not government), and if you understand that endless bailouts spell trouble for our future, I HIGHLY recommend visiting

How many times in our lives have we heard the saying "all that is required for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing?" I don't think people are evil if they don't agree with me politically, but I do think that policies are evil when they destroy our liberty! This whole tea party concept is exciting to me because for too long, too many Americans have forgotten that the government answers to US. And when the government stops answering to us (hello insane congress!), well then we'd better let them know we are not happy about it!

Alright, enough of my rambling... just check out this website if you are interested!

One of the greatest things about blogging is regaining contact with some of your dearest friends...
my friend, Shannon is one such person. I don't know how many years had passed, but it was such a thrill a couple of years ago to find each other again.
Well, Shannon is now a clothes designer... she makes beautiful, fun ensembles for little girlies (and other goodies too).
