Where do i begin.

First, it got cold.

Very Cold.

Our Furnace decided it didn't want to work anymore, and died shortly after Thanksgiving. Everybody was cold while we waited to have a new furnace installed.

Ahhhhh, heat. It took them a day to install it, luckily it was warmer out side than it was suppose to be that time of year so nothing froze.

Then Harper and I turned into rabbits.
Not really, we were playing at the Children's Zoo in Central Park.

Then the girls decided to grow up on me. I had to take them to the doctors to get a special operation to... well you know. They are both recovering fine and don't remember much of that day.

Over Christmas Harper had to explain to Popo and Great Grandma that this is a map of the United States and it holds those funny collectible quarters. She managed to put the pieces that the two previous generations had taken out back in the right order (in a matter of minutes).

Happy Holidays to you all.
Our holiday cards will probably be ready by next year (2010 that is).

What is Tagging?

I'm not really sure, but I'm game.

I was tagged by Harper.

The Rules:
1. Grab the nearest book
2. Open it to page 56
3. Find the 5th sentence
4.Post the text of the sentence in your blog along with instructions
5. Don't dig for your favorite book, the cool book or the most intellectual - Pick the CLOSEST.

Ok this is weird. My closest book is -

"Gun's Recognition Guide" by Ian Hogg and Terry Gander

The sentence reads...

"There is also a safety notch in the hammer and the trigger is disconnected from the firing mechanism unless the slide is fully forward."
(It is describing a Walther P5)

Andy, you are next.

Ps. Just to make sure you don't think we are complete psychos here, my next closest book (i'm not making it up) is "Reading Lolita in Tehran" by Azar Nafisi. It would have been much more interesting.

out with the with the new.

Ok that was bad. Here's the story. Every time we saw the house, I kept looking at the banister and thinking that there is something amiss. Well as it turns out there was something funky about it. Its painted to look like wood, which had the odd effect of making it look like plastic. Not good fresh new plastic but worn out, beaten up, at the end of its life plastic.

See for yourself.

Well that left me with a few choices. One, I could take the time to strip numerous layers of paint and finish out of all the nooks and crannies, sand it, and then have to refinish it.
Option number two, just paint over it all. (which still isn't as fun as it sounds)

I choose paint. (it was cheaper)

My New MMA Studio

(MMA means mixed martial arts)

I guess carpet squares have many uses.

Wedding pictures

This was what I was up to last weekend. My sister in-law got married. It took place in Brooklyn, right near the bridge. These pictures were taken by someone else. (they let me borrow them)

The Groom's side.

The Bride's side.

The Bride and Groom.

The Paebaek Tea Ceremony.
(Korean Ceremony to honor the parents)

The sweet wonderful people that I borrowed the pictures from.

Fun in the rain.
Yes, that is the bride running through the down pour that happened later that night.

busy busy busy...

I know you all feel the same way.

What have we been up too? Well... There isn't much to say actually just day to day nonsense, new members of the family to keep in line, and my sister in-law got married yesterday. No pictures of that event (yet) I was a bridesmaid and a little busy.

So... you'll just have to put up with kitten pictures.

The adventures of Central Vac.

What the H#%! happened here?!

"I think it was...


"Nope, I was asleep the whole time."

"Well, it wasn't me! How about her?"

"She was with me alllll night."

"OK, who's going to clean up this mess?"

"Uh? What did you say?"

"Ok, fine. I'll patch the wall. Feel better now?"

"I am going out to play. Later"

To tell the truth, I did that to the wall, hee hee hee. That big hole was the result of installing a two inch pipe in an inch and a half wall, for our central vacuum system. I have to give a big shout out to Popo, she helped. A LOT!

More to follow later.
