My goal on this planet is to help His bride: literally (I plan weddings for a living!) and spiritually (I occasionally offer words of wisdom to loved ones...) Bless us all on this journey!

It always amuses me that when you're 17 you make fun of computer geeks, and when you're 33 and your computer crashes you wish you LIVED with one. Or better yet I wish I WAS one! My computer crashed at home last week, and my good friend Pat's husband who knows seriously everything there is to know about computers came over last night and did a diagnosis. It's not good. And it's not even a virus or anything, it's just old. Like 5 years. U G H . I laughed and said "5 years is old? That SUCKSSSSS" and he said "Yes well, 5 years in dog years for a computer is like 87..." Thank God I'm not a dog, or a computer:)

My kids thoroughly entertain me. I get home from the store yesterday and I"m not even in the door when Sky greets me with a HUGE GRIN on her face and says "Mom, can we go eat at a restaurant to celebrate?" (Funny part #1, our celebrations--and our mournings for that matter--always involve food). I ask my normally nonverbal fourth grader what we're celebrating, and she reminds me of her intermural bowling outing after school. She exclaims "AND I got two spares AND I got a strike!!!" (Funny part #2, I've seen Sky bowl. Two spares and a strike are seriously a big deal. Seriously). So I told them if they took a half hour and got their homework done right then and there, we'd go Mcdonalds--gasp--and take it to the park since it was finally nice out. I was mother of the year that's all I'm sayin (Funny part #3, I'd just read an article on processed meats and vowed I'd never feed my kids fast food again. Funny how that notion changes at 5:30pm when arriving home from a day that started at a school conference at 8am). Alas the Mcdonald's tasted fantastic--doesn't it always?!--and the park was packed because we haven't had a 70 degree day since last July I think:) Just another day in the life...

Uh oh, when the society we live in frowns upon careless hippie mommies who don't vaccinate for every little thing, the phonecall from the school nurse announcing your kid "appears to have the chickenpox" is a dreaded phonecall indeed! This call came Tuesday afternoon, after Skylar had been on an overnight camping trip with her class to camp Tecumseh. She had a "rash" according to the nurse, who thought within a day or two they'd turn into pox. She was right; within that same day Sky's face took on the look of a 16 year old with bad acne and a sunburn. But MAN has she been a trooper! We went to Dr. McGuckin (our naturopath doc who is oh-so-fabuloso) and have been pumping her full of things like Echinacia and Zinc, and L O T S of vitamin C! And although she only broke out 3 days ago, she'll be back in school Monday she's doing so well. Fortunately the school has been great...at least til I leave the room? ;) And oh yeah, chicken pox is going around, EVEN kids who've gotten the shot. So what's the point again.... ?

Ok I've learned quickly I can plan a wedding in my sleep, but I know NOTHING about running a business! At least not the right way. I've done it out of my basement, on notebook paper, as a service, in cash. Now I have to have things like tax ID numbers and retail certificates. Yikes! So fortunately I had a divine appointment with a gal at the Kouts Chamber of Commerce lunch last week who runs the H&R Block down here and is a self-proclaimed "tax geek." LET THE EARTH REJOICE! I have an appointment with her tonight to get set up properly, so I don't, like, go to jail or anything:)
Meanwhile the shop itself is gorgeous! And really, that IS the important part...
