Awesomeness

Charlie's viking hat is up for the March prize for Herbology in the House Cup!! I'm so excited. I showed him his picture today, and he was too. He's getting so big. He can sit up by himself now! Like, from laying on the floor to pulling himself up to sit. This morning, he even finally scooted forward in his walker! (Food is a driving force for that child.) He rammed into my work chair because he was hungry! lol

Oh, I can't believe I forgot to blog about this yesterday. So, while I was at the carnival with my mom and the kids, Dan stopped by to wish his sister a happy b-day. While he was there, his dad says, oh yeah, by the way, about a week and a half ago, your brother was burning a stump out of his yard, and it caught Michelle's Mustang on fire. WTF!!?!?! They BURNED my CAR and NOONE COULD TELL US!!?!??! Ok, so it wasn't the nicest car in the world. In fact, it was a pretty crappy $300 special, but it was mine, and Dan's VW is finally painfully close to being done, and there was an actual snowball's chance in hell that my car might get started on before I die. We got it almost 5 years ago and have made about twice our money back from it selling parts we weren't going to use off it. And now, it's burned. Apparently the tarp caught on fire and the roof is toast. We had initially planned on putting a different roof on it anyway because I like fastbacks and it's a coupe, but we have since changed our minds because I'd just like to have it. Well, so much for that plan! Dan did just find a picture of a Mustang wagon a month or so ago, and we were talking about that so I could have my car to drive everyday and still be able to tote all the children. My poor car.

Congratulations on the hat! I think I checked out the HP crochet thing once, looked fun (and intense!).

I'm sorry about your car. :(

Dude, I'd hurt somebody over that car. Seriously. Such a great 'Stang with so much potential. Hurts just to look at it.
