Thankful 5th

This is a neat online jukebox site courtesy of Bethe.


Here it is already the 5th of November.....I can hardly believe that 2007 is so close to being on the way out.  AOL weather is telling me that it is 67 degrees out at 2pm.  I am so dreading Winter....I DON'T like cold weather.

It has been a weird year in my world....nothing to put a finger on, but just weird.  Ups and downs with Mr Man, stepDad's surgeries, Roomie-drama, Miss T changing right before my eyes.

  She turns 11 this month.....ELEVEN!  As we were cleaning her room yesterday, we were able to get rid of most of her baby dolls and their clothing etc.  WOW.  She only insisted on keeping Baby Annabelle and Baby Born along with 2 boy dolls she named Mickey Blue Eyes and Eelco (that's El-ko), plus the Build-A-Bear items.

And the Bratz and Big Baby Brats..........

And stuffed animals.............

And in our cleaning we actually found some of last year's stocking candy and gum.

HELLO!  Dear Santa:  Do not leave candy this year!

I still have not found the CD from last year - a Ciara CD.  Grrrrrrrr...

Our fruits of cleaning out her stuff will be in the yard sale money that my SIL makes this coming Saturday for us.   I hate to put on a yard sale, so I'm more than happy to clean out and hand over to her these things.  I have already taken over baby doll strollers, hi chairs etc.


Speaking of Miss T, I am so thankful for my daughter.  She is the light of my life.  I totally believe that her coming into my life was what saved me from myself.  I was so lost, aimless, no direction whatsoever.  God certainly knew what He was doing.

She has been dancing since she was 18 months old.   This year begins her 10th year.......ten years of toe tapping; ten years of costumes; 5 years of competing.  I am hoping to do a color collage for the recital program book to commemorate these 10 years.

Now to start digging through the photos..........

Maybe I'll wait till after the New Year to begin that one.

I've still gotta clean up from the cleaning out I did this weekend.  It seems we made a bigger mess once we got into it!

Don't you hate when cleaning creates a mess?!  Good that you got so much done.  Time does fly by - I think Miss T was 9 when I started reading your journal.

Sometimes, you have to make a mess in order to clean the mess.  Enjoy your week.

Hi Sharon...I started danicing when I was a toddler also.  Took Ballet and Tap lessons thru to my teenage yrs.  Again to get back into shape after having 2 babies. And again, in my forties to stay in shape.  She'll always have dance in her soul.  All us "gypsies" do.

Our life used to be tied up in dance classes. I swore I lived at the dance studio.
Lots of fun and memories.
Take care, Chrissie
