my newest niece arrived today...a few weeks early but everybody's good overall...

her name is Kelly....

named after her late grandfather on her mom's side....5lbs. 14 oz., 18" long....

while under the spell of her arrival and the company of her 7yo sister...I purchased Kelly's first gift this afternoon....

a teeny, tiny, pink t-shirt, with a gamecock logo on the chest...

I couldn't help myself.

picture is from my phone, I didn't have my camera of all days

Give Aunt Lee A Break

and stop playing all the inappropriate songs I have loaded on my phone during the family gathering on the most significant of Christian holidays....wasn't the marathon prayer before we ate a clue it might not be well received? stupid teenagers, pay attention

Southern Baptists don't seem to dig Afroman btw.....go figure

a milestone

I now own more tennis shoes than at any other point in my life...2 Pairs!!!!!

I've been working out...
at a's crazy

and newest pair of shoes
and gym pants....PINK! (or at least pink accents on the shoes)

it gets worse...I'm taking aerobics classes

if it weren't for the fort, I'd think aliens had possessed my body and stored my mind in a pod

games my animals play

fun and games

I took the day off for some alone time...the weather wasn't good, so the dogs, cats and I spent the morning cleaning and shopping and the afternoon experimenting with our recently acquired PS2....

Otis, our dog-like cat, lead the dogs astray by discovering he could open and topple the dog food bucket....

fun for all...of them.....

an afternoon of chasing them thru the house...for me

I hate my work PC

damn pc

it has been dying a slow, painful death for about a week....

I have the approval to get another (read: better, shinier, more powerful and versatile) computer, but there is a process....a
longer than I care to wait process

so today I was reduced to using a tablet laptop, with promises from my techie buddy (
not the one who suggested it was probably just my mouse) that he would tinker with the lemon tonite and get it rigged long enough to keep me from castrating his coworker before the replacement arrives

and of course if I'm not being completely lazy, I could take the laptop in.....yeah, that's not likely

yesterday was March 1st and I had to cut the grass for the first time....

actually it was mostly clover, regardless of required cutting.

as usual my trusty, little, hand-me-down mower cranked right up and my redneck neighbor helped me patch a few spots in our fence...

not that his giant dog (or 2 smaller ones) had anything to do with those holes, but that's another story entirely.....

my point? seems wayyyyyyyyy tooooooo eaaaarllllyyyyy to be doing that sort of yard work...

at least I can recline on the bench in the fort and enjoy this view after I'm done...

edited to add in my defense....the area the lawnmower is on, is a patch near the house that gets little sun and is constantly under attack by the dogs...there is a lush blanket of green covering the rest of the back yard under normal circumstances
