No news is good news, right?

I'm not a big fan of the month of January. Its slow, boring and cold. Thus, there isn't a ton to blog about. Lets see what I can dig up...

Beth and Sarah had a "slumber party" on Friday night. They've been begging me to let them sleep together, so I agreed that they could have a slumber party on Friday nght. Basically, this just meant that Sarah would sleep on Beth's pull-out mattress. Knowing full well how the evening would go (thanks to several past attempts in Florida of this same scenario), I started bedtime at 7:15! After COUNTLESS trips in there to tell them to calm down and go to sleep, I FINALLY removed Sarah (kicking & screaming) at 9:15 because Beth was whining that she really wanted to go to sleep and Sarah wouldn't let her...which was totally the truth! Beth needs sleep. I knew this would be the outcome, but I held out as long as I could. I knew they were having fun being all giggly and whispering and making memories...but I also knew that Sarah was just NOT going to sleep until she has been isolated in her own her own bed. So, after about 15 minutes of screaming, Sarah fell asleep....
....and no one slept late Saturday morning, either. Beth was up at 6:45...Sarah at 7:30! ugh!

Bob and I are finally getting to go to Gatlinburg in a few weeks after several failed attempts these past 9 1/2 years since our honeymoon there! He has several "business" things to do in Knoxville, so I'm tagging along and when he is finished, we're headed to Gatlinburg for 2 days, 2 nights...a much needed get-away!

I'm getting ready to dive into making bows again, to get ready for the Spring Sale the 1st week of March. Right now, I'm making Valentines bows and ponytail streamers for a few people. If you need one, let me know! Bows are $3 and $4 and ponytail streamers are $5. I have lots of Valentine's ribbon. I invoice via Paypal.
