To the person that vandalised our Vehicles. First off we KNOW who you are but I will not print your name here. You brilliantly wrote things on a few of those notes you wrote that only you would know. We have filed a police report and we have given them your name. The advice I would like to give you is this.
1. Get a life. Do you seriously have THAT much time that you can spend on writing 100+ nasty notes, toilet papering and saran wrapping cars? You need to spend your time more wisely.
2. Go BACK to school. Your grammar and use of words is pathetic. Either that or buy a thesaurus. I mean seriously even my 8 year old can be more creative. Not to mention you really need to clean up your language.
Last but not least
3. Stop and THINK before you basically sign your name to an act of stupidity. The problems that you have in YOUR life are NOT because we helped out your neice. If she hadn't come to live with us she would of went somewhere. As it is she chose to leave. You were also given the chance to leave your situation and you chose to stay. That was as I said YOUR choice.
( I know the next person will not ever read this but maybe some other moron who is credit card happy will )
Now on to the person that is having fun with other peoples credit cards. I know you think that you will get away with all this, and you might for a while. But someday it will catch up to you. You may be thinking well its ok the bank will just give them their money back. So they wont really be out anything. That may be true BUT as I said before it will catch up to you. I can wait for that. You were just a blip in my day. I am not even angry. Because I know that they will catch you. You stupidly went INTO the stores and gas stations to use a a fake card. Do you not realise they have cameras? You have actually made the fraud department at my bank kind of happy as they feel they will certainly find you. You also chose small town gas stations in the SAME area. I do hope you have had fun though as I am pretty sure it will soon be ending. If they dont catch you this time however I am sure (and I can sleep peacefully knowing) they will at some point.
Again I am sorry to just vent this out but I needed to. Now I can go on with my day and get some work done.

The next pictures are of my new best friends! That can of chilli kept the top from being entirely pleated. Love that can!
This ruler is amazing! I would still be out there quilting without it.
Last but NOT least is my wonderful steamer. I cant even tell you how handy this little guy was! We have bonded for sure!
This next picture was going on right outside my Gracie House window as I was trying to work. Chai (aka the cat that hates me) was trying very hard to figure out how to eat Lola. But Lola was just taking it as affection! I had a very hard time getting any work done from watching them all day!

This years honestly wont be as bad as it has been.Usually Jerikah is in just about every other dance and backstage is a madhouse with helping her get ready. This year she is just in the beginning production of CATS (encore performance), 2 in the middle, and then the finale. Astrid is in 2 in the middle, and then I am in one right after intermission. This is the time when I ask myself WHY IN THE NAME OF ALL THATS HOLY am I doing this?????
I cannot come up with any good answers except that in Sept when dance starts the recital seems so far away and not really a big deal! There is a moment or two right after we get off stage that I am happy I did it also. But I think that has more to do with the shot or two of tequilla that I took backstage. Maybe.
Anyhow, last nights piano recital was adorable. This was Astrids first. Jerrod is old hat at it since he has been taking lessons since he was 5. Astrid performed Big Black Cat and Jerrod performed Icebox. I have to admit though for as cute as all the kids were and as wonderful as they were also, ALL I could think of was the new episode of Bones and House I was missing! I am a horrible mother. Thank heavens for DVR though.Ü

Now Gracie House, I do tend to keep that tidier. I guess because you never know when a customer might pop in.It still does get cluttered but it also gets cleaned once a week and being that it is only me in it it stays a whole lot cleaner.
One reason my sewing room isnt as clean as I would like it to be is that everyone uses it.I do mean everyone. The sliding glass door is one of our back doors and no matter how many times I threaten to throw shoes away they ALL get left there for me to stumble on.The dirt left is unbelievable. Hence the vacuum.
I am also going to use the excuse that I was incredibly busy this week.I busted out about 8 customer quilts,4 bindings,AND manage to work on a few of my own projects. Still though this is pretty bad.
So lets see your studios! I am curious is everyone as big of a mess as I am?
