In case you missed her update, you can click on it on the sidebar, or you can just go check out The Girl Who Could Fly by Victoria Forester. I can't wait to read it! I've been dying for another book!

Just wanted to let everyone know that Sue wasn't working at Arctic Circle when the robbery happened yesterday. Thank goodness.
She actually has a new job! She's been working there for a couple of weeks. She works at the Rose - Colored Crestation (if you know what I mean). She's really liking it so far. They are giving her tons of hours and she makes about $2 more per hour than she did at Arctic Circle.
School is going pretty well. The cosmetology program is a bit helter-skelter right now. For awhile they didn't even know if there was going to be a program. It looks like she'll be able to continue on through the current program, then be able to take the credits back to the community college.
Ok, I'm annoyed! I tried to get Les Poissons for my song today. Playlist didn't have it. So, here's the little clip instead (Yes, I know Les Poissons is about a crab, but work with me people)

Pookey came shortly thereafter and sometimes we shortened that nickname to Pook. The girls still call her Pook. I think they always will.
Smash was the next name she had, then from that evolved Super Smash. She couldn't say Smash very well, so we started calling her Mash. Then of course, we had to change it to Mash Potato. But Super Smash was always kind of lingering around, just waiting to be used again. And then, finally, the name Super came along. These days, I'm calling her Supe for short.
Happy Birthday Sweetie! I love you!

Here's what we know we're going to do:
Tear out the cabinets and refinish them and
Add crown molding to the top and possibly some molding at the bottom as well.
Get new counter tops, sink and faucet.
Add molding around the windows.
Put in more hardwood flooring (exactly the same as the stuff in the living room)
Now, this is where YOU come in. I need some suggestions...
We originally thought we'd distress the cabinets, prime them red, then paint them black and sand off the edges.
Now we are entertaining the idea of distressing, priming dark brown, painting them cream, and sanding the edges.
My first instinct is to go with black, but have you seen my kitchen? Barbie's kitchen is bigger than mine. Is black going to close it in? If I had to decide right this second about the cabinets, I think I'd choose cream.
Then there's the faucet issue. I want antique bronze. Jason doesn't think we can have a bronze faucet with stainless appliances. What do you think?
Then paint. Oh that's almost like a four letter word (only it's five). With the copper, rusty red and yellowish in my living room, what color do I do my kitchen? We kind of like the idea of doing the rusty red color as an accent and putting it on the wall you see when you first walk in to my house. But then, what other color with it? Painting the whole thing red will make it feel extra extra small.
So, help please. What do we do?
The playlist is back today having NOTHING to do with kitchen remodeling. But, it does have a few of our favorites from...you guested it Rock Band! (2)
Carry on My Wayword Son (this one is where my title came from): Kansas
Tangled Up In Blue: Bob Dylan
Float On: Modest Mouse

Hopefully you haven't ever seen this one, but, if you have, oh well. Listen anyway. It's funny!

We are learning the letter Ll this week. Every time we learn a new letter, we glue something to that letter. We were getting ready for that today when I picked up a piece of lace and asked:

Thanks so much Liz, for sending this awesome video!
No song today for obvious reasons. And, because I'm such a considerate person, I took the music off my blog for this post so that you don't have to try to fight with it while you are listening to this. That's me, always looking out for my friends!!

Friday, I made a New Year's booklet for preschool. I took it to the copy store Saturday, then yesterday, I cut it apart and stapled it together. Here's what I made:
Don't be late.
The clock ticks.
Count some more.
The new year has begun.
Happy new Year
Are you trying to figure out what I did wrong? I was re-filing all my papers when I realized that I wrote the wrong year, and not only on that! I thought I would try to make my planning easier next year, by writing the school year that I did the worksheet on the bottom of everything we did. So what did I write? '07- '08 school year. I can't believe I did that! So my year mistake, cost me about an hour and a half of my day! I can't believe I did that!
Today's song has to be:
'Cause I'm a Blond by Julie Brown. Remember this one?

So if you've come here looking for a witty post about some type of test, you will be disappointed. I am actually trying a new program where you can download the contents of your blog, then print it out. For some reason, I can't get any of my comments to come up. It's slightly irritating! So, this post was really a test to see if the comments left here would come up. They didn't! I wonder if I downloaded an old version of the program somehow. Hmmm.
On a much brighter note, ALL the contents from my external hard drive have been recovered and are now in working order! I think Jason spent about 10 hours on the stupid stuff. Don't worry, there were big rewards for him!
