No-Sew Tutu Fun!

So I was on Tip Junkie the other day, and came accross this post:

It completely inpired me to make my own “Halloweenie” one for M. She wants todress up as a witch this year, so I thought this might work, without the blue pajamas ofcourse!

Uh-Oh

So I just called the rink, as M has practice tonight. They are still without power, and the rink is nice and toasty, which means no ice. No ice means no skating. Which means I have to break it to M that she will not be skating tonight (she just turned 3 yesterday, so I’m not sure she’ll understand). I don’t want to be me right now…

Ike vs. the Miami Valley

Default post image

So it’s been awhile on here, and for good reason. We were hit by hurricane Ike’s winds (68mph) on Sunday and promptly lost power. We got our electricity back on yesterday after loosing well over $200 worth of food. There was little damage to our home, just shingles missing. Our tree in the front yard (the little one) was up-rooted and the tree in the back lost a large limb. And we are on the corner! The condos down the street lost some huge trees. Most of the area is still without power, and I can’t imagine being them. I have never been camping before, but this was close enough, and I am NEVER doing it. EVER. Yesterday was M’s birthday, and we took her to Chuck E. Cheese, one of the few places open in the Valley. The photo I’ve posted above is of Crews working on a downed 138,000-volt DPL transmission line on Tuesday, Sept. 16. It’s located in Sugarcreek, which is just outside of Beavercreek, and where I worked before becoming a domestic disaster.
