R.I.P Sonic Death Monkey

During my cleaning tonight I found our beta, Sonic Death Monkey (or Mr Fishy as he was mostly known as), belly up. He was 3.5 years old and a friend of mine told me that was about average for the life span of a beta. So I don't feel quite as bad about him dying. You will be missed, Sonic!  


Today, after we hung out at Peter Piper Pizza with friends, we went to work on breaking down Christmas and cleaning our house up! The kids and I got all the Christmas stuff put away in two large plastic boxes. I've become a master organizer for Christmas stuff! All breakable ornaments were wrapped in newspaper and stored in liquor boxes with dividers I got from a restaurant that sells alcohol. Non-breakables were put in cookie tins which I've collected over the years from gifts. I have no idea where I'm going to put these two large boxes along with two Christmas tree boxes in our tiny condo. I'll figure something out.

I cleaned up a little more tonight after the kids went to my moms and Rob was at work. Got laundry put away that I've been avoiding for several days. I loaded and ran the dishwasher and took quite a bit of trash out. I've been chasing a smell in our house for a couple weeks and realized it was coming from the beautiful flower arrangement I got on the 18th from a friends wedding. So I had to toss it but I now have a nice vase for decoration.

I'm tired!

Today's creation.

I made myself several pairs of these a few years ago and I wore a pair yesterday. I got so many comments on them I decided to remake the oldie but goodie! These will be a gift for a good friend.

Question of the Week

Mondays will always have a 'question of the week' post that I hope people will participate in. The rule of these postings is you can only answer the question ONE time in ONE post. No replying or arguing to others answers. You must also answer the question asked. So if the question is looking for a specific answer dig down deep and find the answer.

Q: What is the ONE most important thing you do everyday.?

A new blog for a new day and a new life!

I guess it's time to start a new blog. My old one has sat dormat and I have had many many issues with it. So I think since my life is so different and I'm embracing that difference that it's time for a new blog that defines me as I am. Stay tuned, this is going to be a CRAZY fun ride!
