random stuff

Well this is my new tea kettle. I love it.

Rusty was home all last week. He said he was on vacation, I however did not get a vacation. I still had to cook and clean, chase a daughter down in Italy and whatever else a stay at home mom does.

I found this set at a thrift store. I just love it. Nikki comes home tomorrow. I can't wait to see her! Rusty will get to hug her first, because he is going to pick her up from the train station.

I think I have everything ready for her trip to Nicaragua. I even made a quilt for the missionary that they will be working with. Deb asked me to make him a quilt because he will be getting married the day before the team arrives.

I have the anti vomit drugs. I am so hoping that Nikki will not get sick this year.

I scored this awesome piece of Pyrex at a yard sale. I could tell you all the details behind this pot, but that would only prove how dull my life has been. The big coffee cup was part of my mothers day gift.

George pointed out to me that I spend more time talking to my cats then I spend talking to people. So I started paying attention and it is true. HMM.... could Rusty be right? Have a I become the crazy cat rancher?


One of the marines sent me this bear. I was not missing the marines until I got this bear in the mail.

I miss my marines and I want them to come back. I want to cook for them, clean for them, and hug them.

Dustin will be the last marine to leave and he will be leaving in a few weeks.

Last week was very dull for me. I must say that the sex was good. If sex gets better once the children leave then I want them all to move out now!

Thank you for sharing that the sex was good, I think.  It does get better when they're not home.  The coffee pot does look like a bong.  I love the tea kettle alot and the china is gorgeous.  

Have a happy fourth!

I enjoyed your random stuff.  Yes, you had better take advantage of the girls' absence to abandon all restraints!  And bring the excitement back to dull times.  I laughed at the comment about talking to cats more than to people. I used to know this woman whose only topic of conversatin was her dog Muffin.  She was a very pretty woman but could attract no men because of you know her mind on Muffin.  I sometimes suspected that is how she drove men away, because she was tired and wanted to.  She died of cancer not long ago and may have outlived Muffin.  Oh by the way, Muffin had the worst character of hardly any dog in here.  She was a pill.  Gerry
