A Few Randoms....

I went to New York City a few weeks ago, and had a total party. This is me and Jenny Lattimer, my fabulous friend. Please forgive all the pics in this post- they are all from my phone. But this was us at Don't Tell Mama's, a piano bar we went to. Originally we went to a separate room for some comedy show- it was painfully bad, and offensive, so we walked out after the first act. I am pretty sure that waitress hated us. But I don't care. The piano bar part was really fun; I love listening to live music! There were, however, some very nice middle-aged women at the table next to us. One of them, as she got more and more inebriated, kept pouting and trying to get us to sing, since it was open mic. I may have wanted to punch her, by the time we left. Maybe. We laughed so hard all weekend. I love that girl.

We also had a singing party with all my friends who are still in the City- it was so fun to sing with my old friends again! I know such talented people...I have not laughed like that for a long time; I may have cried a few times.

This is my cat Jack. I love him. He is pretty naughty. Always playing with our blinds, and scratching on our couches. We have tried spray bottles, and now we just shut him up in the pantry, like a time-out when he is bad. We are such good parents.
Jack has yellow eyes that show up green in pictures. He looks a little like a demon cat. This bag is his favorite toy.

Jack, I am sure, is looking at something very interesting.

Finally, it snowed this weekend! Quite a lot, apparently, for this area. This is the view out our bedroom window. It was so pretty, it made me happy.

Ok, I decided I am not quite done, sorry. When I was in Texas over New Years, I went shopping with my mom, my sis Carolynn, and my niece Amy. We had so much fun! I sure love that little Amy. She is 11, super cute and smart, and I am really looking forward to seeing the great things she does in her life.

Amy's little sister Kathryn is a little bit hysterical to me. She got hold of one of the drums my parents brought back from Ghana, supposedly for my nephews Caden and Gavin. However, on New Years Eve, that sucker was all hers. She is even holding it correctly, with the rope over her shoulder. She knows what's up, and she will let you know she knows. I died many times that night just watching.

Well, now I guess I am done. Again, please excuse the poor quality in pictures. My desktop computer is still on the fritz, and that is the only computer my camera will upload to. Boo.

Rain, Rain...

When I left Las Vegas, I was so rain-starved I swore I would never complain about the rain. Ever. I still won't do that. But I just have to say, it would be nice if the rain stopped for long enough that my roof would dry and someone would come fix the still-gaping hole in my ceiling. It would be nice.
