Later while the kids were napping and doing quiet time I turned on the boob tube for a little more of that inauguration high. The parade was starting and Pres. Obama threw a Shaka at the marching band from Punahou High School. The emotions came again. I'm a bit of an emotional eater I guess cuz I decided I needed some Inaugural cookies and went for these 7 layer cookies I had made the day before.They were pretty stuck to the pan so this is the knife I used to cut them and get the cookies out with.
The knife slipped up and 14 stitches later, I was back home recovering while watching the inaugural balls. The knife went in the bottom of my left pointer finger and out the top. Yuck.
I refuse to show you the stitches, sick-o's, but I will tell you how very lucky and grateful I am that 1. I still have my pointer finger. 2. The kids were not around until I was on my way to the doctors. 3. I somehow didn't sever any nerves or bone. 4. Nana and my brother in law Gabe came at the drop of a hat. All I had to say was that I cut my finger and needed to go to the hospital. They came right over. Nana took the kids and Gabe drove me. I thought I was being pretty tough but I guess I was pretty obviously in shock. "What would you do in a situation like that?" I laughed my way through the shots and stitches, mostly at myself. I feel like such a dumby. It doesn't hurt now, but is a very annoying reminder of what an idiot I can be. I think Gabe called it a, "fat kid move".
There you have it. A very memorable Inauguration. Welcome President Obama.

I can't wait to take the kids to Sea Life Park.... they will want to live there forever. There's a kids music group called "Ralph's World" with a song called, "In the bottom of the sea." It's a family favorite- really not just for kids. Tried to find a link, but just because I couldn't find it doesn't mean you shouldn't try. You and your kids will love it. Car rides will be so much better with "Ralph's World"- promise!

* Warm winter clothes (especially shoes) that don't make me feel like Napolean Dynomite wearing moon boots.

I've played with the idea of getting a puppy before, but now that my babies aren't babies anymore I have been really really REALLy wanting a puppy. I think it's just the emotions. I've found myself watching the pet adoption commercials on Demand (our cable offers them), and going ga-ga for some of the pups at petfinder.com. I'm sure I'll get over this soon enough, but in the meantime-HELP! (as if it were that serious) But seriously, as a person that has never had a dog before, can you help talk some sense into me? Take the sweet, cudley, puppy perfect picture out of my head. Give it to me straight- would a puppy be a huge mistake?

And to all those that thoughtfully gave stuff to Taj, he says, "We got a lot of crap!" It was said in the sweetest voice ever- we're not quite sure he gets what "crap" means. We had a good laugh and are working on helping our kids show more gratitude :)
