The life and times of a Madwoman....

Hello Dearies,

So, so busy! Easter is Sunday and I haven't gotten basket stuffers. Thursday is Froggie's birthday. Easter is also Tattoo's birthday. Mace and I's anniversary is the 7th. Llama's baby shower is the 14th. May is full of birthdays and June is the wedding!

Speaking of the wedding....candle making sucks ass! Just saying. I think I'm going to give up and buy the damn candles. I'm starting to stock up on the bowls and platters for the food.

Today I got a brand new toy. I ordered a mini whoopie pie pan. The little cakes it makes are just too cute! I have a bunch I need to ice tomorrow.

I've been getting back into crocheting. Yesterday I taught myself a new pattern. I'm pretty proud of it. I totally suck at reading patterns.

Mace and I had a little set back on a very important plan for the wedding. We'll hopefully get good news on that front next week.

Work has been pretty good. I was just over an hour short of overtime this past week. That'll be nice right before the baby shower. Even the Ass has been nice lately.

Midget got B Honor Roll! I'm so proud of her. I know school is really hard for her sometimes. She had a "Spring" program the other night. She did a really good job!

Bird has an IEP meeting coming up. The teachers never have anything bad to say about him. 

Mace and I are going to go get our Doctor Who on. Here's a parting picture of me getting my geek on....

Where are the golden rings when you need them?

Good Sunday morning/afternoon Dearies....

We've had a VERY eventful morning at the Hut. 

The Fruitians go to church every Sunday with the Parental Figures. It's Mace and I's "alone" time. This morning started out like every other Sunday morning. I spent the first hour yelling at the kids to hurry up and get ready.

Midget was taking a super long time to get ready, but this is nothing unusual. The Boy called to let us know they were on the way. By the time he got up here, Bird was ready and Midget was still in the bathroom. She went to grab her coat. I should have known here that something was up. Midget took forever getting her coat.

Out the door they went, running and yelling.

The Boy sat here and talked to us while Mace and I played an online game. After the Boy left with Chatty, I went to check on the animals. Midget had taken a box out of the hedgehog's cage. No biggie, I knew it would happen sooner or later so I'll just move the tank....right? Wrong! I grabbed the water bowl and didn't hear Sonic (the hedgehog of course) huffing at me. I lifted up her igloo and....nothing. She wasn't there. The hedgehog wasn't in her cage!

I yelled for Mace and we started searching Midget's room. I was starting to freak out. When we couldn't find Sonic we came out to the living room. I'm not sure who thought of it, but Midget did take a REALLY long time getting her coat. And her coat wasn't on when she left.

OMFG! Did my daughter just take a hedgehog to church!?!?!?

I must admit after the first freak out, I found this very funny. My daughter may have just let loose a hedgehog in the most uptight church known to mankind. I can see those old stuck-up's climbing the pews and screaming for their lives, thinking god was bringing down his wrath!

Mace and I were freaking out. I called the female Parental Figure, but she kept hanging up on me. I kept searching Midget's room. Nothing....

After a couple of hours I went in Midget's room one last time and was poking around when I heard huffing. Oh thank goodness!

Sonic had found a nice warm cozy spot in Midget's toys and was fast asleep. I returned her to her cage and rewarded her with a bite of banana.

Now if you'll excuse me, I need to go see if there are any new grey hairs that need plucking....
