What happened???? I watched American Idol tonight but I did not see Rachel Zevita at all, aka Opera Girl. Remember her? She had a sort of hippie look and sang three songs, including opera. She was incredible and if she had an album out right now in her "rocker voice", I would buy it on the spot. Who am I kidding? I love her voice no matter what she sings. She was so original and really could sing anything. I can't imagine she got voted off. Did I miss her when I took Daisy out for 2 minutes? I was so looking forward to hearing her again.

Hopefully she will be on the show tomorrow. She was so pretty and since she could sing anything, she really could have made herself into whatever she wanted to be. I hope she stays. It would be awsome to see her kick some butt when they do all those period/theme type songs, I am sure she would just get right into character. Did you see her entire persona changed when she switched to sing the three different types of music? A lot of good singers can only sing one type of music and if they try different things, they sound really bad.

What do you think?
HAPPY BIRTHDAY PAUL & MATT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was just wondering if anyone happens to have Dad's ship (Schooner?) pin? Mom has been talking about it a lot lately. She remembers all the times she got Dad all dressed up for board meetings for work and for family gatherings over the years. He is wearing it in almost all the pictures of him when he was dressed up, pinned on his tie. She says she feels really bad that she gave all Dad's jewelery away after he passed, but she wasn't thinking clearly. She is not even sure of who she gave it to.

I just thought if someone had it and wasn't necessarily attached to it and wanted to send it to Mom, she would really love that. But if someone has it and really doesn't want to part with it for sentimental reasons, that is fine to.

I don't want to post her address here, but I think most of the family has it. If not, I can always e-mail it if someone wants me to.

I just thought, it never hurts to ask.

We have been busy.

We have been doing renovations...
...which seems to wear Daisy out (napping under the curtain we just took off the door and threw there).
Bam! Out like a light!
It wasn't all hard work. We played some to.

And there was even time left over for some quiet reflection at the end of it all.
She's got the best seat in the house!

Am I a junkie??

I also cleaned out & organized all my beauty products a couple of years ago but I ended up with a much different result than Lesley.This is what was left over once I threw out a bunch of stuff.
Now I am back to overflowing with products, especially since my last trip to Bath and Body Works in Texas, my favorite! Oh well.

We finally have our car back!! I hate not having a car. It really sucks. Especially when it is cold out. But we've got it now, until next time, which I hope is not in the near future.

Anyone watch Jennifer Lopez's new show, Dance Life? I am watching it now. I hate Blake. Anyone remember Blake from So You Think You Can Dance? He was an ass on that show to.

I love the dance shows. Even though Blake is an ass, I gotta say he really can dance. Nolan is kinda cute though. Better go watch. I think he just got a gig with Mary J Blige.
