hey ya’ll long time no blog. i still don’t have internet at my house. so i can’t get any of the my pics onto my blog… it’s starting to slowly chew through my patience and i’m sure i will eventually snap and do something about it. i get paid tomorrow so the possibility of that happening this weekend is fairly more plausible than anything wonderful happening tonight.

the muffins are feeling better and they say thanks to you for sending them warm wishes through telepathy and friendly emails to their mother. they are not so happy living at the new house because they are terrified of Marie’s ginormous cat, callie. last night i let them out of the bedroom and everytime they came out callie herded them back in and then ate their food. there was much growling and showing of teeth. sunday morning at 3:30 am yin-muffin puked on the newly laundered bedspread and then monday morning as i was waking up yang-muffin did the same thing on my spare newly laudered quilt. i think it’s nerves from the callie conflict.

i’m thinking that my new landlord will come and fix my closet this weekend. for three weeks i’ve had this huge pile of all of my work clothes on the floor in my room. i’ve been talking to the fix-it guy and he has been less than helpful. when i call him i am usually on the phone for about 45 minutes because he just talks and talks. last time he told me all about his sinus infection and how he woke up that morning and his whole pillow was soaked in blood from his NOSE! eeeee. i cannot bring myself to be a bitch, because i am an avoider of conflict and he thinks i’m sooo nice. he recognized my phone number as a west virginia one and told me his 2 ex-wifes were from there and i was the nicest woman from wv that he has ever met. yeah whatever.

i worked until 11:30 monday night rendering some drawings. it sucked.

my first day home, xmas eve was spent with jen. we had a great day driving around seeing funny shit…

spelling may not be a west virginian strong suit. dancing pizza on the side of the road. henri sleeps like that on his back. so cute.

we stopped for sushi…

when we ordered the love boat combo, we had no idea how huge it would be!

green tea ice cream for dessert…

it looks amazingly like wasabi, and doesn’t really taste like green tea, but was good none-the-less

that night i taught jen to knit…

she, of course is a natural. progress shots.

mama & daddy got all kinds of fun yarn for me for xmas. you’ll be seeing some completed projects eventually.

after xmas we headed up to montrose to visit my grandparents…

first pic is my mama’s parents and most of my cousins on that side – please note that i am by far the oldest but still the shortest. my dad’s mom taught josh to crochet. i told him if he mastered that, then i would teach him to knit.

i took a walk the next morning and took some pics of the winter scenery…

my cousin tina’s austrailian shepard was not happy to see me. view out my uncle alvin’s front door. a tree in a field.
a fence around one of my grandpa’s fields. some frosty weeds. the cemetary.
my grandpa’s barn. the hill behind the barn that we used to sled down. the old hen house.

on new years eve eve we all got together at mandee’s to exchange gifts and fabulouse prizes…

whenever we get together, there always seem to be animals…

henri. lucy. harley.

after that party jen and i headed to the local bar to see if we could run into any of the old peeps from high school…

we only found jon. but it was great to see him.

jen & i at the start of the evening. then a few beers. then everything started to look a little blurry.

that’s all of the pics that i have. i felt like i was constantly pulling out my camara but there are some obvious gaps in my documentation: my parents, cory, gretta, jess’s family, miss karen, new year’s eve, more of my family in montrose, etc.
it was great to see everybody.
