Only in a small town...

Would walking home from school in the snow make the front page!

I finally finished!

In the midst of a really crappy season of life, I had a little victory. I finished my first knitting project, EVER!

My Thanksgiving Plans

Boise is a delightful blend of traditional and non-traditional sights and attractions. The City of Trees boasts one-of-a-kind museums and urban parks, a river flowing through the heart of the city and a 25-mile river front greenbelt. Among the many unique sites to visit are the Basque Museum and Cultural Center, Morrison-Knudsen Nature Center, Idaho Anne Frank Human Rights Memorial, Idaho Black History Museum and the World Center for Birds of Prey. Southwest Idaho’s easily accessible outdoors beckons the Boise visitor to enjoy nearby mountains, desert sand dunes, canyons and whitewater rafting rivers. Boise is the perfect city for a memorable visit.

Can't wait!

What to do on a Saturday...

So today I am stuck without a car which poses a little problem. They guys are STILL not done with our floor replacement which means we are going on day 8 with a house that is totally disheveled and not entirely liveable. I haven't cooked in who knows how long and spend my days trying to find stuff to do in our upstairs or hanging out a coffee shops.
And today I am in a pickle because Craig has the car. I was supposed to help out with ECFE's Flippin' for Books, or at the least show up (since I am a member of the early childhood's PTA) but alas, two miles one way just seems like a long way to walk. But I still have to vacate the premises, so we might go see Bee Movie. (Movie Theater: .9 miles.) This is the main reason for my post. I found some really great websites that help parents make better decisions about what movies are appropriate for your kids. We need all the help we can get.

New Haircut

I guess I realized that literally every time I could write here, it could be deep and dark. So I decided to keep it light a fluffy. I want to talk about my new hair cut. I realized that my "thing" is hair. Some people have shoes (don't get me wrong, I love shoes too) and some people have tattoos. Some people like purses or maybe even jackets. But yes, mine is hair. I almost never get the same cut. Last year, my hair was down to the middle of my back, and how it does not even touch my shoulders. Sometimes it is lighter, or redder, or highlighted, or even black.
I took a picture of my hair so that it could be documented. (Keep in mind I just got done walking eight blocks in the rain.) Also through this experience, I realized that it is very, very difficult to take your own picture in a mirror. Kudos to anyone who does a good job at it.
