Ryan has taken to calling our black cat, Dutch, Dutchie the Pirate. I find this hilarious and now I call him Dutchie the Pirate. What an awesome nickname!

Today I did the baby sitting thing and was thoroughly annoyed every time he asked WHY?

We were talking about a blue pillow and he asked why it was blue. IDK, IT JUST IS. I just have no idea how to answer these questions. Or why is the crayon black? Umm...

But overall, he was pretty good. When I dropped him off, I went for sushi with Kimberly. We had a nice time. We somehow sat there for roughly two hours. Woah. I asked her if she could check on the kitties while we were gone and she said yes. YAY.

Then not much else happened. I've got to get my stuff together for leaving. I've got the kid again tomorrow, so I think we're going to clean around having him. Sweeping, de-cluttering, laundry, and cleaning out the fridge. Then I'm stopping by Nana's when I'm done with Ryan just to see her. Perhaps she will buy me some clothes?! Also with the leaving I have to organize a list of things I want to take with me and then cash some checks at the bank. I need money for coming back, you know.

I am so excited to leave! I only have tomorrow and Friday to get my stuff together. I can do that. But damn if I am not excited to be in Arkansas where it will be warm. I'm looking forward to thunderstorms, fishing, barbeque, catfish, and Mexican food. Also, the water park and the lake. Ohh, yes. And maybe a festival if I can find one.

I just love hanging out at his Nan and Pop's house. I love them. They're awesome. They live on a river and on a quiet road that we like to walk on in the mornings. I'm going to take my smaller camera and take LOTS AND LOTS of pictures this time.

AND SARAH. OH YEAH. We have a friend from high school (she's pretty much how the two of us are together) who lives in the Jonesboro area that I want to meet up with. She got married last year on July 7. 07/07/07. How cute. I hear she is expecting now, too!

:D

Should I buy a sewing machine?

There is one at Target on sale for seventy dollars. It's a Singer, it has 34 stitch patterns, and comes with a DVD.

I have been wanting to learn to sew for a while. I don't exactly have the space for one. Well, at the moment, anyway. If we cleaned up one of the bedrooms, I could use that, and it wouldn't take a lot of work.

I have tons of thread for some reason. And I would have a heck of a lot of fun buying material.

When I was shopping with Diane, I was looking at throw pillows and couldn't believe how much they were. Wow.

I want to start with pillows and curtains and eventually start making slip covers and toys. I'm not really interested in sewing my own clothes, oddly. I might make a purse or something, though.

So... This is Woo.

And this one...

Photobucket

is not fond of him. I thought he would want to kill him at first, but he has since calmed down. He doesn't hiss and growl at him anymore, but he does still whap him on the head if he comes too close. But he's laying in my lap now. I think he might take a nap. I feel bad for him. :( He's my favorite. Heh. Nobody else knows that, though!

I don't know why we got this kitty. That's four. Ugh. I'm sure I'll get used to that idea some time soon, but as of now, I'm really regretting it. He's cute, though. And really fluffy.

I finally got my tea time necklace today. YAY.

I've been taking Ryan out to my dad's while I'm watching him. I don't remember if I've mentioned this. But since no one is around and they're crate training the puppy, I'm out there for her, too. It's about a half hour drive out there and Ryan fell asleep along the way. He was looking at a game manual. Ha. So, I thought it was cute and snapped a picture. He was drooling a little bit, but you can't see it.

This is in the party barn. I love it. Behind the table and stuff there is this cement bench that runs the entire length of the room. Also, on the right there is a bar. It's made out of old minnow tanks. They were out at Canoe Creek when my dad was running the boat rental and bait shop. I used to just stand there and watch all the little fishies swim around. There were hundreds of them.

Photobucket
Oh. This is a more close up picture of it.

Photobucket
This is from behind the bar.

Photobucket
This is behind the bar. There is a small fridge, a microwave, and a coffee pot. I just gave my dad an old crock pot for out there, too.

Photobucket
This is on the other side of that room. I love all the rock walls. Anyway, this is where there is pool, ping pong, and darts.

Matthew and I going to go grocery shopping. Thank gosh. I'm going to take advantage of this crockpot and make dinner in it tomorrow since I'll be gone all day again. I'm thinking... Jambalaya.

PUPPY

They can't decide on a name, but it's a little girl. Cindy's neice suggest Princess. Gag. Cindy likes Bailey and I think that's way too common of a dog name. I suggested Phoebe, but I think they're going to end up settling on Zoe.

I was babysitting today and I brought Ryan over to my house for the day. Anything to get him away from those stupid videogames that they let him play all day, everyday. I made him something to eat instead of chips or some crappy frozen kids meal. He played with Matthew and had a lot of fun. When it was about time to leave, I asked him if he was ready to go and he said no. Haha.

Dutch also absolutely loved him. He followed Ryan around all day. He was very tolerant of him and liked playing with him. And when Ryan was actually sitting still, Dutch would lay with him. I got some pictures of the two together. They're kind of grainy, but I like them.

Some of these pictures are from Thanksgiving. I left my camera in Greencastle and never got it back till Christmas.

Photobucket
For Thanksgiving, I made pumpkin pie. This is the only one of three that turned out. I made another one right after this one and I forgot to add the eggs. I tried to make another when all my friends came over and we had dinner together and I remembered to add the eggs, but I forgot to add the Bisquick. Ugh.

Photobucket
I had this for breakfast Thanksgiving morning. Biscuits with sausage gravy and a glass of blueberry pomegranate juice.

Photobucket
There were grapes.

I didn't get a photo of Thanksgiving dinner. I had a salad with avocado, tomatoes, walnuts, bleu cheese, and bleu cheese dressing... Steak, twice baked potatoes, and asparagus/broccoli/cauliflower with hollandaise sauce.

I didn't get a lot of pictures for Christmas, either. I'm terrible and remembering to use my camera. It was even sitting beside me while we were opening gifts.

Photobucket
This is the kitty we found in our alley and gave to his parents. His name is Sammy and he's silly. Something apparently bit his paw, though, as it was all swollen and he was limping around.

Photobucket
Matthew and I went out to finish shopping and when we came out, this was in the sky. Cool. You can see his yellow car in that photo, too. We actually saw another rainbow on that trip on another day, too.

Um. The coolest thing I got was probably my ipod dock. Or my electric blanket! omg. Matthew bought me Coco Chanel. YAY.

...I just bought a really cute necklace online. I pretty much saw it and had to have it. I'm not usually so impulsive, but it was just way too cute not to get. And it wasn't too expensive for being one of a kind. 16 bucks total, including shipping.

I applied at the knickerbocker today. The person that took my app said that if I really wanted the job, I'd have to call and bug the shit out of them. Sigh. I'll be calling every afternoon.
