All shades of Purple

Because purple is my favorite color.

If I don't come back

it is because I don't want "the new blogger." So go ahead and say you'd miss me. Oh, right, you won't, because I was never any kind of friend to you, huh? I was actually thinking today about a more personal post but this stupid "new blogger" rubbish has made me feel pretty crabby about the whole effort.
But I also wanted to share some cool mugs I found. Dunoon makes some really cool mugs and they have become an obsession with me. I was wishing for a mate to one very cool mug I have and so I googled the brand stamped on the bottom. Voila! And then I discovered that another mug in my cupboard (my very favorite mug!) is also made by Dunoon. I want all of them except the cat, zodiac and sport ones. Tell me you are hooked too?
Mmh. One more thing. I hate winter.

Parenting Observations

1. "Catching up on sleep," "Going to bed early," and "Sleeping late" are all myths.
If the neighbors don't start their pulsing music to interrupt one of these activities, your child will interrupt this foolish behavior. Why on earth would any child want a sane and well rested parent, after all!?*

2. If most of your child's jammies are in the hamper (due to assorted breakfast embellishments), expect a night time accident. If you have been so foolish that day as to change the sheets for no reason, you are seriously asking for trouble. Bonus points if it is cold and you are in the habit of layering jammies. Heaven forbid we have a backup pair on hand. ("Yes, I know these are day clothes, but trust me, you can -and will- sleep in them.")

(*Mild exaggeration for effect, since we do get a reasonable amount of sleep most of the time.)
