Corynn's dolly has a name: Kelly. In fact, the very VERY first thing she said when she saw her (after, of course, the little gasp!) was..."What should we name her?!" Only seconds later, had she decided upon Kelly. Which to me is odd, since I don't think we know ONE single person named Kelly. She has enjoyed making Kelly match her and vice versa, as can be seen above. Notice the hair. Yes. Kelly has more of it and she is like 1/5 of Corynn's size. You gonna make something of it?!?!
It was still tough work, though not NEARLY as tough as it may have been. I guess, in retrospect, fresh tomatoes ARE more firm than boiled apples turned mush.... I should have thought of that before. My left arm just hangs limply by my side today and barks at me everytime I try and move it.
But-I DID make 13 quarts of spaghetti sauce and some salsa. I have LOTS more salsa to make and was planning to do it today except- I ran out of canning lids. ARGH. That seems to ALWAYS happen to me.
More breaking news-can you STAND it?!?!
We now have high speed internet! I have had SO much fun, in the little increments of time that I have been afforded to BE on the computer this last week. I especially like the videos and songs people post. I have never been able to view them until now! I am looking forward to posting my own here pretty soon, since, now it will hopefully not take so long on MY end. This leads me to a ??? for you. Given my time constraints previously and how slow my computer was, I was unable to answer all the comments that people gave individually and only answered questions and so, this just naturally stopped. Now, I am able to do it again but I wonder, does anyone actually check BACK for my responses? I don't want to waste my time, either. So-if you have input~I would love to hear it.
And finally~though this is probably not of great importance to anyone (as if the top two were...)
I have successfully been able to keep my house in tip-top shape now for seven consecutive days! Wa-hoo! I think there may be hope for me yet!
Well-spending 10 minutes before the kids go to bed to have 'clean up time'. So far, it has worked smashingly well. Every morning I wake up SO happy, because the first thing I see is a NICE floor! Now that the house, overall, is clean, I am setting aside time each day to work on hotspots that have, as time progressed, become disorderly. My vanity. The towel closet. The clothing closet. Etc.
And that is it for the breaking news at the Newmans. Have a great evening!
