In lousy news, I've been home a full week from CHA and still am not completely well. I seem to be in a state of constant coughing, making videos completely impossible. We're going to blame the illness for why I... Continue reading

EMMA: "Christmas is giving, Christmas is truth, Christmas is sharing (except for the juice)" (grins) MOM! She immediately went toward the kitchen. KARL: (following) the juice? EMMA: Oh, yeah. You probably haven't seen my post-it notes yet. (she opened the... Continue reading

We all survived Finals Week! Whoot! It was time to get caught up on clues. Now my original plan for the butterflies was to hide them in the toaster. We have a four-slot toaster and I had a rhyme in... Continue reading

Well Karl was right. Apparently I will look for any excuse to fold stuff, because this morning, while getting out the dollars for today's clue, they just looked so blah without being folded into something, so I went with Cranes.... Continue reading
