i've been trying to find time to upload pics (as i promised in my earlier post)...
tried to do that today, and, for some reason, our computer no longer recognizes our camera when we connect it (if it ain't one thing, it's another)!
aside from that, i've been super busy:
* all of our gardens (6 in all...they're not large, just spread out) are finally weeded, planted, and ready to be mulched...yay! (we finally cleared all the weeds and wildflowers out from around the shed and transplanted our peonies)
* planning jaden's 6th birthday party...she made her own invites (it's a "candy-themed" party...we're going to have a candy bar and a table to decorate your own cupcakes)
* the kitchen's almost done! (only 5 more cabinet doors to paint and old carpet to pull up)
* jaden tried to convince me she wants a puppy...the conversation went something like this:
jaden: "mom, i really want a puppy!"
me: "you do? you know they're hard work."
jaden: "well, on the Bratz sleepover movie, the little girl has a puppy and she has to learn how to take care of it. and, if i get a puppy, i PROMISE i will watch the Bratz sleepover movie EVERY DAY so i know what to do!"
