Yep, I pushed her.

Ok, everyone it has been a while since I posted anything. And really this time there is a good reason. I have been working on cleaning everything out, because I am moving to Switzerland. Ok, I am kidding, but I am really cleaning everything out. Lydia and I are going to have a garage sale sometime this spring, and I have been working feverishly to get stuff rounded up for it. So far I have cleaned out the my big closet twice, my bathroom, most of the kitchen, the cabinets in the back bedroom, um ok and I think that is it. I know it doesn't sound like very much, but I swear it is.

You should see the shop it is over flowing with all sorts of treasures for someone to come and find. Lydia and I have been talking I don't think we are going to price stuff. Its going to be a garage sale where make us an offer and its yours, or we will hang up a big sign that says something like all clothes $0.50, all knick knacks $1.00 or you know something like that. We are going to attempt to have said garage sale in The Town Without a Frown, and hopefully it will go over well.

Lets see what else has been happening. The Girl Scout Troop is going wonderfully. I swear I have the best group of girls around. Cookie sales are going so great. Everyone is working so hard, I am just so proud of them.

I have 25 gift bags ready and waiting for Valentines day, I have already talked to the lady at the Women's Shelter in Ama and she told me how many to make and I said no problem.

Wednesday night meals are going great. Little Miss is doing such a great job at heading that up.

Dixie Dog was in here first heat this past week. Yeah that's been fun. There was a big dog on the other side of the fence the other day, so I went over there to shoooo him off, but instead he growled and chased me. That was not as much fun as it sounds like, I swear.

I pushed Milk in the bathtub last night. Stupid cat. I was running a small amount of water cause I just wanted to shave my legs last night and then go to bed. While I am running the water she gets in the tub. She stays in the tub until the water hits her feet and then she gets out. Ok, whatever. While I am in the tub she keeps swatting at the water. I keep telling her Milk stop it. Does she top, no of course not. So I get out and am drying off and she is still messing with the water. So I pushed her in. She freaked out and ran into the other room, all wet. I had little paw prints all over the carpet in the bedroom. It was like a small victory for me.

So I am washing sheet the other day, and I washed the ones on the back bedroom bed. Well, I am not an over achiever, so it takes me a couple of days to make the bed back. I go in there to put the bed back together and this is what I find. Please not this picture is not posed. I did not put him like this. This is the way that I found him. I did move the covers back a little so that you could see him better. That's my Cookies baby.

It's the age old question.

Should you make New Year's Resolutions or not??? In the past I have made resolutions and I have not exactly followed through on them. I don't know how it is for any of you out there, but once New Year's Day is gone some of those resolutions go right out the window. I know that only one of my resolutions last year carried on past March. That was the one that I was going to do something to my house every month.

Let's see what did I do...hhhmmm...I got a new refrigerator and a dishwasher (one that is not names Baby Gator), I had ceramic tile laid in the bathroom, I painted the bathroom, I painted the cabinets in the bathroom, Mama and Dad bought me two beautiful new solid wood doors to go in the laundry room, I hauled off all of the stuff that He Who Shall Remain Nameless (HWSRN) brought in, and I got a new toilet paper holder. So see that one went ok for me.

So this year I don't think I am going to make any resolutions. I am going to live 2008 to its fullest. I am a girl scout troop leader now. Next week Little Miss and I start cooking Wednesday night dinner at the church. So this year is just going to be a fun year. That is how I am going to look at it. A fun year.

So ok everyone, here is your challenge. Let me know what you want out of 2008. If you could have a perfect year, no matter what...realistic or not, what would it be? Come on y'all let's have some fun!!! What would happen, what wouldn't happen, would you travel, fall in love, get married, get out of being married (lol, just wanted to through that one in), buy a house, move to Italy, if anything you want could happen then what would it be??
