finally!

the go! team - the power is on!



FINALLY!! after 5 1/2 days of it being out!


i really need some winter shoes. my toms are not suitable for the use in snow especially since my dinosaur of a car does not have heat going to the floors. last night was a taste of that chilly-ness and so i am putting the word out there to all of my clever, friendly, resourceful, stylish, practical friends out there. HALP! something eco friendly but not hippy-like or expensive. but ideally let's just shoot for cute and functional first. i dont want something that screams "winter shoes" but just something that isnt thin canvas or mary janes.

here's what happened while we were gone:
augustine fell out of [a really really high] bed at my parents house [twice!], i bought olive this at a garage sale today for $10 for christmas (come on, love it for the price), i slept terribly - feel like i could keel over at any moment, lots of overdue books!, spent a lot of time working in my parents yard - they lost 5 trees and countless branches, augustine told me he wanted to marry greta ([info]kjames daughter) - this after i told him he could not marry jakin, in ohio at least), we ate out a lot, went to see TWO movies last night.

ive been reading your blog for a loooong time, just never comment or blog myself. hehe hope thats ok.
anyways, i dont know if prehistoric cars have this option but there are heated blankets that plug into that cigerette lighter thing. my friend has one because his car has no heat.

I know someone who could get you a smoking deal on some New Balance shoes. New Balance owns some other companies that make kicks other than running shoes. Probably not quite what you're looking for but if you decide that you want to run the Boston Marathon soon, let us know, we know someone you could stay with and hook you up with some running gear. Love you girl!
