I sometimes leave a Mohawk on top just to mess with him. Actually, I don't mind cutting his hair, he is a pretty good kid. ;)

He then screwed the knobs onto the lamp screws. It is so much easier to turn the lamps on now. I love them. It does look a little odd. But then I have never been one to do things with what other folks might think. I am not one to keep up with the Joneses. I like to think I am the Joneses. Now I have to clean the shades in the shower. The shades are very expensive one. More than the lamps.
Sounds great, Addie! I will remember that one when my fingers get that bad. I feel them going, but am still able to use most of my fingers.

I'm trying to get myself up from the computer and go make some gluten free muffins for DH to surprise him for breakfast. I got the recipe from Michael Smith's new show, "Chef Michael's Kitchen". It is brand new so probably isn't in the States yet.

Then I have to bake cakes all afternoon and evening after he goes to work. I need one for his MIL as we go over to celebrate her birthday (was on the 11th), one for Joie's groomer as this is his last time with her as she is moving to the island (very sorry about this - she has done so well with him and he owes her lots of thanks ), and my neighbour found out I was making my chocolate cake recipe and asked if there would be enough batter left to make her some cupcakes.

Oh, I almost forgot - Mollyanne and Vitauta's cakes! (but don't tell them okay? )

See what marathon migraines do to me? Yes, I meant MY MIL and she, besides Ma of course, is my only mother and I love her like one (though it wasn't always that way).

Though there is a family who have been very good friends. The wife used to refer to her mom as her DH's MIL! Seriously!

Kylie,
i'm so glad you going to be ok. I know how much it hurt and how long when you do something. I not only had and artificial vein put in my arm for dialysis, then I fell and brok the same arm. What a mess. It hurt like the dickens for months and is just now feeling better. There are still times when I lean on the arm the wrong way and I could just run and bay at the moon. Plus it still looks odd. So chin up sweetie. You will be better and please follow the doctors instructions.

Going to huddle under the lamp and read the instruction book to my new electric pressure cooker, from cover to cover! I wonder if Shrek is up for a roast at 1 AM...
