This has shipped.

Yay! Simon let me order this wonderful magazine goodness. Now I have to find issues #1 & 2. Any ideas?

Isn't he a sweetheart? I can't wait till they get here. I need a distraction. I have been sick with what-turns-out-to-be a virus. Yesterday, Si made me go to prompt care, where they sent me off to the ER to be tested for Meningitis. 8 hours later they decided that they did not have to do a SPINAL TAP and let me go home. There was a collective sigh of relief. Lots of time is being spent in bed.

Hope you are having a lovely day (not in bed)! xox = cah.


Oh Sheesh. Seriously?

I am so exhausted and I have been here all night and I am tired and my fish just died. Literally, just died. He was a betta and he couldn't get to the top of his tank for air, so we put him in a cup, but he was still to weak to make it, so we lifted him up for air and he took one last deep breath and died (betta's breath air).

Nothing seems to be going right since we moved to Illinois. Our puppy has mange, we took our cats to the vet and moments after we left, they both started having strange reactions and the little one lost her hearing (maybe a bad ear infection) and the baby started loosing his hair (maybe ring worm). Our three yellow snails died.

Really, we are good animal parents. In the last year though we made some major life decisions and I feel we did them wrong and I am sure we are being punished now. Also, the battery on my keyboard is dying, so I am forced to get some sleep. xox = cah :(


Laughter Seems Appropriate.

Okay, so please feel free to laugh at me. I set up a word press blog with all the features I like, but it just seems to “dark” and “heavy” to me. I want to change the css, but you have to pay $14.95 to do it. Stupid me, I did not realize.

Would it be wrong to switch back to blogger? I will keep you updated! xox = cah.

Molly The Small.

This is Molly. She is very small. She is only three months old. We have had her for 5 weeks and she is 5 times the size she was on the day we brought her home. She is growing by leaps and bounds and soon she will be Molly the Not-So-Small. So, I thought I better share her now while she still fits in a photo.

P.S. I am still changing things up, hope it’s not too annoying *smile* xox = cah.


Yay! Babies!

I just found out that a sweet, wonderful, internet friend of mine is having a baby!

Must … make … baby … presents!

I can’t wait! What should I make for her? Is it going to be a boy or a girl? Better make goodies for both, just in case! I found a few lovely free patterns at Ravelry. Now to pick one … or you know … a few! Fun!! xox = cah.

Hello Again!

My name is christine ann haynes. 

I love my old blog vegasandvenice, but, I allowed it to fall into dis-repair. I am making a fresh start. It might be slow going, but I hope you’ll stick with me. xox = cah.
