Feeling Sad Today

For the past 4-5 years I have worked in the same building and company as my sister.

We were 3 floors apart and in different departments but still here together.

We didn't each lunch together often or even always get to talk every single day (although mostly) but we were here together.

Today she is beginning a new job within our company. I am very proud of her.

But she is now gone from our building. She is working from one of our satellite offices.

And I miss her already.

And I am happy for her but sad for me.

Happy Birthday to Me

I am so excited. I got my camera. I ended up getting a Canon. I can't wait to get home and play with it.

My sister-in-law had some contacts at a camera store and they really took care of me price wise.

Now I have to learn how to use it.

I just had to pop in to document the fact that Belle has had her first piece of gum on Tuesday evening.

I made it almost 6 1/2 years with her not having any. We were driving and she wanted a cinnamon mint but we didn't have any. So I see her thinking for a minute and then she says, "can I try a piece of gum?"


I give it to her and keep telling her to not swallow it. I ask her what she thinks and she gives me her thumbs up sign.

I also told her that the flavor only lasts a few minutes. And what does she say to that?

"Then what do you do with it?"

I laugh and say that you just chew it. She spits it out and then wants another one. But she was also making a nasty face when she spits it out.

I explained that you don't chew it for a minute, spit it out and then right away chew another one. She wanted to see if she would like the second piece better than the first. I tell her that is not going to happen.

She decides she would have liked it better if it was strawberry flavor. Here we go.......

I have been a bad blogger. I don't know what gets into me besides too much going on.

My birthday is Monday so we are celebrating this Friday evening so I can hopefully go buy a new camera on Saturday.

And the thing about the camers is now I eliminated the Nikon from the list but have added the Canon XSI but they are no where to be found since it is just being released this month. UGH>

Poor Belle has had a wart on her big toe for forever. We have tried so many things to get rid of it and we thought we did a couple of times but it would still be there. I even had the doctor try to freeze it off with no luck. So lately we have really been working on getting rid of it and I think we are just about there. She really wants it to be gone by the time she has to wear sandals and flip flops and especially before we go to Florida. I am hoping once we get this last piece out we will be done. And I think we may be able to get it out this week. I asked her what she wants to do when it is gone and she told me she wants to have a wart be gone party. So in the spirit of things (because she really has gone through a lot with this stupid thing) I am going to try to make a cake in the shape of a foot for her to have a little party. So funny. I will have to post pictures of the cake. I hope I can pull it off.

That is all I can think of off the top of my head.
