Virtual GNO - The Gang's All Here

`

She's home She's home! My Outdoor School adventuring 12 yrs. old is home. It has definitely been a quite week here. Now we are waiting for her pictures to be developed and seeing if OxyClean can really take out embedded grass and dirt stains. Time to relax and have a Virtual Girls Night Out!


Time For Some Tunes!

I've been thinking about Motherhood a lot lately and this song keeps popping in my head. It seems a perfect soundtrack for Mother's - The Movie. (Someday someone will write the screenplay, I'm sure.)

Chumbawamba "Tubthumping"


"I get knocked down, but I get up again, you're never gonna keep me down". THAT'S what being a mom can feel like sometimes.

How can you not sing along to that tune?!?


Time For A Cocktail!

"He drinks a whisky drink..."

Barlely Legal
Ingredients:
2 oz. Perrier - or more
1 oz. Glenlivet Scotch Whisky - or more
Instructions:
Mix and serve over cubed ice in old fashioned glass. Garnish with a twist of lime.

Sounds perfect right about now.


Time For A Party Game!

As I look around my house I see a LOT of Barbie's. There's the Barbie in her scuba suit and the Barbie who's a Vet. These Barbie's are outside on the swing-set and in the garden too. But, these dolls don't represent the way I think they should. If I were a Barbie I would be "Sunscreen Barbie". Follow the chart below to see which Barbie you would be.

"Modern Barbie"
Use the chart to find which Barbie you are. Use the letter of your first name.

A - D = Sunscreen Barbie
E - H = Lactose Intolerate Barbie
I - L = Migraine Barbie
M - P = Blogger Barbie
Q - T = Mini Van Barbie
U - Z = Bi-Polar Barbie

Now, which Barbie are you? If you need to tweak this a bit, have fun!

Add your link anyway & I bet you'll be able to visit friends tomorrow... or the next day... or the next day. Happy VGNO! *

Miss Poodle Perm, That's Me!

Jill of Scary Mommy is doing a linky post about school pictures. You know the ones, possibly you didn't smile a sweet smile, just the smirk of panic. Or you didn't know it was picture day because you had been out sick for a week and you show up in your most comfortable shirt and bed-head. (Yep. That happened to me. The smile was good though!)

Well, my scanner isn't working or else I would post a particular picture from Freshman year. Since I don't have a visual, here's the story:

I remember my first day of High School. Actually what I remember is the picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair, the hair, my hair style was a nightmare.
My two best friends and I were going to be attending a High School out of our district. That was stressful enough. To add to this new-ness we wanted new looks as well. K. was going to sport the Argyle and Alligator shirt look. W. was going for 'All Monogrammed, Al…
