Or to hit the "Felt Underground" to make some "hip projects from the Urban Crafts Revolution." (Who knew that felt was so dark and mysterious?!)
But, I might be able to make some time for this one...
There are three extra glasses if anyone wants to join me. Now we just need a name for our new "hobby" club...

My daughter is in that monkey-see-monkey-do stage, and I cannot seem to apply the filter to my mouth when I am in the car. If anyone has a suggestion, please feel free to share it. Because road rage just takes over and the words fly out without a second thought to who is listening in the back seat.
A few weeks ago, I was cut off in traffic and screamed "F*CK!"
From the backseat, Anabella yells: "F*CK!"
Me: "Crap! Stop it!"
Me (to guy who cut me off as we pass him by): "Thanks a lot."
Anabella (waving and smiling at him): "THANK YOU!"

That's exactly what I said when the box from Nutrisystem appeared on the doorstep today. I was kind of hoping it would take a little longer to get here.
I guess that makes it official. I am on a diet. The party that has been my eat-a-thon for the past year ends tomorrow. Scarlett is four months old, so I can't be all like "I just had a baby" anymore. Plus, my 20th high school reunion is this year, and I refuse to go as the fat girl. And it would be nice to wear some of my old clothes again. Maternity sweat pants are so last year.
So please send all your good thoughts my way. I need all the support I can get! And by posting this for all the world to see, I am hoping to make myself somewhat accountable. Feel free to taunt me by asking how much weight I have lost in the upcoming weeks/months. Maybe that will get me to quit the Mocha Frappaccinos (damn you, Starbuck's)!

"Wishing you a fabulous 2008! Kick ass and take names! P.S. It's the year of the Rat, so watch out, because rat-like Nutria are moving into your neighborhood."
Or something like that.

The only exciting thing that happened is that my car turned itself into a low rider on NYE (the air suspension died and the car lowered all the way to the ground and wouldn't come back up!) and is now back in the shop for the SIXTH time since October (note: do NOT keep a Land Rover for more than 70K miles!).
So I bought a new Hummer last Saturday! Here it is...
Isn't it cute? I know it's a bit BIG, and maybe sort of a gas guzzler, but I love it and I don't care. I recycle practically everything, and my hubby works on all kinds of save-the-environment projects...I am doing my fair share. And if you think about it, we actually downgraded from the H1 to the smaller H2. So don't give me a hard time.
Besides, I needed to get back on Al Gore's shit list for having all three of things below.
(Note: I wouldn't call my house a McMansion, but it definitely looks more like house #1 than house #2.)
So what is happening with all of you?
