New Year, New um.. other stuff

In which I talk about newness....

It's been a minute since I posted. Gah! Maybe it's because I twitter so often I forget to actually blog. I'm not sure. But here's what I've been thinking. Almost all of my social sites are dark backgrounds. Dark..Dark...Dark. I think it's time for a change. I'm thinking I will change the blog first and take baby steps to changing other things around.

Let's talk about Christmas for a minute, shall we. I gave my son the 200 lb Trampoline and my daughter got the fur real friend, Biscuit. Both got exactly what they asked for this year. That felt good. Plus, they received other gifts that they loved. Like System of the Down CD and an Easy Bake oven, respectively. So, we did have to dig a 14 ft (in circumference) hole in the snow to put the trampoline up. But, the kids all bounced on it, even in the snow. Here's the process:
The beginning

The middle

The end

Yep. That is the trampoline. Later, there was a wind advisory that I neglected to consider. Which picked up all 200 pounds of the above trampoline and threw it across the yard and into the neighbors fence. As seen here. I rescued the monster and laid it flat in the yard until the winds die down. Or I figure out how to anchor it in the yard.

In other news...
Bento #2 I have entered into a new food hobby. Called (insert drumroll) Bento. I already adore it. I knew I would when I saw goblinbox doing it. I am still learning portions and how to make everything ascetically pleasing. Then, after I have that mastered, I will begin making cute designs and figures and what not. *Mwahahaha* I have all kinds of links for Bento and where to buy stuff cheap. It's all in the "where I go section". I would recommend this food hobby/obsession to anyone. Srsly. So. Much. Fun. I think I only want to eat bite size food that are in cute little containers from now on. Too far? Eh. Whateva.

*Curtsy and I'm out*

  1. If I'm home alone and no one can see, I'll totally eat out of a bento box instead of off a plate. Totally.
