, thanks for such a beautiful new house with a gorgeous setting! I’m sure we’ll be very comfortable here!Sean
, that’s good that at least your mom would get some compensation if she does lose her job! Thanks for posting that commercial…very amusing. I love the ending!Suzan
, the cupcakes turned out pretty well. I almost didn’t make enough frosting. I had one tablespoon over, and I only made roses for the ones my daughter took to school, not the whole batch. If there were any more kids in her class, I wouldn’t have had enough! They were really yummy though!Lynne
, I’m glad little man had a good time at the birthday party! It’s so different here…I know back home, parents generally stay at the parties for little ones. But here, they just drop them off and go. I’m sure it helped your son to know you were there if he needed you. I’m sorry about your finances…that’s so scary! I don’t think I could ever do my own business. At least not for a main income. I panic about money too easily. How can the insurance company refuse to pay? That’s so awful! Sometimes I think insurance companies are just evil! When we flew back from the US in 2010, our flight was delayed 7 hours and the only compensation we got was a couple of dinner vouchers for while we were stranded in the Orlando airport. (enough to pay for a meal at McDonalds) We found out that for flights of more than so many (1500?) kilometers, if they are more than 5 hours late, they are supposed to pay a few hundred dollars per passenger, but they denied our claim. I don’t see how they CAN do that..but I can’t imagine if it was my HOUSE. I’d be so ticked. Can he fight it?Jaclyn
, I’m not familiar with Robert Burns, but that’s cool that there’s a night devoted to celebrating him. I saw something the other day for a Jane Austen festival in Bath…that would be so cool. I’m such a nerd! LOL I’m sorry there won’t be any games when you are in NY. I was so upset when I went to the states 2 summers ago…I JUST missed the LeakyCon (Harry potter) in Orlando by a day or 2. So disappointing, isn’t it? And wow….those pictures…I especially love the jaw porn!Caryn
, stop it! You are making me hungry!! First all the talk about the luncheon for work and now the cougar dinner! Thanks for all the pictures…I think I’ll avoid that quiet place to think…Heights and I don’t get along. The one you posted of the many sides…the “sweet” one…did you see the Q&A video that went with that? That’s one that I watched when I stayed up WAY too late watching Twilight related interviews and laughing so hard! What is ISSMA? Yay for a gold rating!Susie
, the University of Wyoming has a Gamelan group. We studied it a bit in my World Music class…it’s not really my thing, but it is really interesting to learn about….there’s a lot of ritual that goes into it. Our professor went to Bali to study the traditions and such and then he started the group at the University. It’s cool that your son got a featured part. Thanks for hauling the birthday list over to the new house! You shouldn’t be lifting, though!!Tracy
, thanks for packing up the member list! It’s not a big deal, but when you have a minute, can you fix my username on it? It says sonDbird. And thanks for the beautimous pictures!Marielle
, I just noticed what book Rob is reading in that first picture you posted. LOL For some reason I can’t see the rug, though.
Aren't dreams supposed to either reflect our desires or fears, or be about whatever you were thinking about right before you fell asleep? I think I read somewhere that dreams are your brain's way of processing the things going on in there...so if something happened to you that day that made you feel particularly strong emotions, you might dream about that. Or if you are worried about starting something new, you might dream about it...or if you are um...feeling frisky, you might dream wish fulfillment. Last night, after laughing about that very fun twilight product on the FB page, I shared it with some friends of mine from high school...and laughing about it with you and them, etc. made me dream about a high school reunion that was similar to what I would expect from HH Con. So maybe you were thinking of something before you went to bed that translated to your dream?Amy
, you can never have to many mirrors. Every house needs a few. Especially ones that reflect sexy eye candy! Wouldn't that be fantastic? To look in the mirror and see not yourself but some very drool-worthy male specimen?Kristina
, thanks for the decorations! About half of them take me to a scary looking woman with a fluffy blond wig and in period clothing, though. What are they SUPPOSED to be? I did however LOVE the guest bed…but why only for guests??Ginnie
, I will certainly add you to my prayer list! Nice tshirt! I’m with the others though…I don’t think I wore junior sizes when I was a junior! I wonder if you could have tshirts made…? Café press has some great tshirts, too.Brenda
, if only they could really host a nice brunch for all of us…Edward is supposedly quite the cook. I wouldn’t say no to his cinnamon rolls! Rob and Kristen/Edward and Bella had a son in your dream? Weird! We read an article here about bilingual children and it said basically the same as you did…they may have a slight delay in the beginning, but they catch up quickly and then tend to exceed their peers. And it also said that it somehow expanded that part of the brain or something so that it made them better with languages in general, so later if they want to learn another language, they’ll have an easier time of it. AND it’s supposed to somehow be a natural defense against dementia. Not sure how that works, but it’s cool anyway. I’ve never read any fanfic….I’m a canon fanatic, but it sounds like these will all have to follow canon? So maybe I would enjoy it…I’ll have to look. Thanks!Tonise
, I love that set with the throw, pillow and tote. I might have to add that to a wish list…do they have a Jacob one?Jenn
, how sweet that your daughter was coloring pictures for you. My fridge is almost completely covered with child artwork. And have fun with your mom!
, sorry I missed it, but happy belated birthday! I hope you had a fantastic day!BlueStarEgo
, I don’t know you, but hi! I’m Susan/songbird and I’ve only been here for just over a month, but it’s already become a haven. I’m a stay at home mom of 2 and I work very occasionally in a shipping warehouse.
I hope I didn't forget anyone, but if I did, I'm sorry, and HI!
I was going to make cinnamon rolls this morning, but I forgot to buy cream cheese for the frosting and stores are closed on Sundays. Boo.
Next weekend, I guess. On the upside, my muscles are feeling better, so I’ll be able to get back to working out on Monday! Caryn really did make me hungry...so I guess I should go make some lunch. See you all later!
