The new look? It's the Nap's. Of course!


I want to take a minute to thank the incredible Nap Warden for her help.


Her talent is brilliant, and her friendship is treasured.


When I emailed her that I was feeling a bit down in the dumps, (and when I say down I might mean HORRIBLY DEPRESSED) and I told her that I thought perhaps a make-over would perk me up, she was on it like fruit flies on the turtle cage in my classroom. (It's a science experiment.) And I adore it. She tried to convince me to use the glass woman the first time, and I was finally ready.


In other news, Munchie will choose a winner for the necklace AND Sara's OTHER signed copy of her book tomorrow afternoon.



And after a wild and crazy pajama day here in Smythe, Oregon, I am happy to report that Frank went a whole day without ONE TIME OUT.


I was incredibly distracted by his spiderman pajamas that he ingeniously coupled with a Ninja Turtle cape and some Abominable snowman slippers.



Unfortunately, I left my CAMERA at home.


I almost forgot! BlogHer grabbed my lecture to the Gov. They posted it today! :-)

I love Nap Warden--when I explained that my avatar didn't accurately reflect my true shape she sold me with, "This is the easiest weight you'll ever lose." She was right!

My twin 2yr olds have recently taken to telling me when the other deserves a time out - it's such a treat. pssft.

I have so missed your blog! Guess it's going to take some time to get caught up from the now almost two weeks that I've been away!
I have also missed my own blog that I have terribly neglected.
I'm so sorry you forgot your camera. That would have been a great memory moment! And Congrats to Frank for no time outs!!!

So sorry you were down in the dumps. Tomorrow's a fresh day! I still can't wait to get together.

As Cape Cod Turns said...

Yay to Nap Warden for spiffing you up a bit! Hope that gave you the spring boost you needed. Spring is coming some time soon, right?

Momo Fali said...

Yay, Naps! Yay, Vodka! I hope this made you feel a little more shiny and a lot less dull and in the dumps.

Today was our pajama day. I could get used to wearing lounge pants to work.

Can't wait to read the BlogHer post.

You are turning it around, VM, I LOVE that.
