When youngest daughter was telling me about her day at school this afternoon, she said that one of her friends lied to Heaven & now they’re not friends anymore.

I said, “What? She lied to Heaven?”

“It’s a girl, Mom. Her name is Heaven.”

I asked, “Like H-E-A-V-E-N?”


Sooooo, whatcha think about that?

cheetah girls

Just as we’d finally ridden out the storm of the mania from the first Cheetah Girls movie, Disney set the newest hurricane spiraling at my house.

On Friday, we had a “cheetah-licious” Cheetah Girls 2 movie premier party at my sister’s house. My daughters & neices were very excited. From 7pm until 9pm, we heard lots of squealing, giggling, singing, more giggling, and whispering.

The girls have now seen the movie a few times, have memorized several of the songs, and have decided that they must become the next Cheetah Girls.

I suggested that they try a new gimmick. Instead of being Cheetah Girls, since Disney already has those, why not be different?

How about

The Lion Girls?
The Dolphin Girls?
The Shark Girls?
The Giraffe Girls?
The Koala Girls?

They did not like my ideas. At. All.

The girls now want to decorate their bedrooms in cheetah print. Well, my youngest daughter & my sister’s eight year old do. The other girls are not quite as enthralled.

In case you wondered, it’s now official
(at my house & my sister’s house, at least) –

Cheetah Girls Rock!

the blooms and the hilton

My African violet has been blooming since May. These pics are from Thursday this past week.

Have to share this one…. as I find it quite funny.

Just down from my sister’s house is the Hobo Hilton! YIPPEE!!

Each time we go to her house, the kids & I look over at the Hobo Hilton & crack up laughing. I cannot wait for the day we see it pulling out of the drive for a vacation. πŸ™‚

pop eye

It’s 10pm on Thursday & I just realized that it’s Thursday. Good grief. No Thursday Thirteen this week for me.

On a more positive note, I’m happy to report that Bob’s pop eye is healing. Bob is the betta that oldest daughter got for her birthday. He’s shimmery blue and very pretty.

About a week ago, I noticed that one of his eyes was really big & swollen. It looked like it had a big bubble around it & like it was about to burst. Worried, I searched online for “betta bubble eye” and found that it was probably due to an injury to his eye. I remembered then how he flopped around & probably hit something when I was cleaning out his water bowl.

So, we kept him in a quiet room, made sure his water was clean, fed him as usual, and now, it’s almost back to normal.

I don’t have any photos of Bob (they don’t come out so well with the water & bowl in the way), but here’s a page that has a few photos of a betta with pop eye.
