At the end of the video, Arlene wipes her mouth and says "Eww!" What a stinker!

We all know Lydia is a pretty princess. She walks like a princess ballerina, up on her toes. It was cute for a little bit, but it got to be concerning because she would never walk on her flat feet. Her balance is off because she's on her tip toes. At their three-year well-baby check up I asked the doctor about it, and he referred us to a physical therapist. Lydia has been going to physical therapy for the past four weeks every Monday. She has a weak tendon in her foot/leg that is causing her to walk on her tip toes all the time. It's in her left leg, but she walks on tip toes on both feet to overcompensate. Her tendon is weak either because it's always been weak, and that caused her to start walking on her tip toes, or, it's weak because she has always walked on her tip toes.
They'll look similar to this picture below. I feel bad that she'll have to wear the braces. The physical therapist said that Lydia can do exercises all day for the next year, and still walk on her tip toes just because that's how she's always walked, so that is what feels natural to her. She needs to break the habit of walking on her toes.
*Funny: When I was driving to work today I thought of that line in the Nightmare Before Christmas where the goblin say "Fog as thick as jelly brains!" I wasn't sure if I had the line correct, so I Googled it, and came up with a website where someone has actually typed out the entire script of the movie. I'm a fan, don't get me wrong, but that's a little extreme, don't you think?!

We now have a house in a box:
They gave us the box to house all of our paperwork. I was most excited - I just love organizational items! The next step for the new house is that we will finalize the financing - fun! Not really, it makes me want to puke. We'll be paying more for the new house, but it's much bigger, so we just need to deal. Our lot is gorgeous, it has a tree line in the back and a babbling (really, it babbles!) creek, then another tree line, then there is going to be a park with a walking trail constructed. It's really quiet and the street is a no-outlet street so the girls will be safe. [We don't even let the girls in the front yard where we live now because the street is insanely busy.] There was three inches of snow so I didn't get any pictures. I will post some once the snow melts!
So that was Saturday ... on Sunday we woke up to a phone call that we had a showing at our house. So we organized and cleaned and had to waste time somewhere so we checked out the new Ohio Valley Antiques Mall. I found soooo many things that I wanted to buy. But I just got two items:
When we got back to the house we weren't even sure if anyone had been there. Usually there is a rug askew or the shower curtain is pulled back - sure signs someone's been checking the place out. None of that today. Hmmm ... at least there is interest though. We had a showing Wednesday night and the feedback was that the peeps were "maybe" interested.
Oh, in the meantime of all this house selling/building excitement this weekend, I made an Ipod cozie! My friend A. sent me some super soft n' fuzzy yarn last week. Turned out pretty cute!
I'm tired, I'm going to watch the Oscars in bed now!

Pomegranates are the symbol for infertility - I wasn't sure how I was going to signify pomegranates in a pendant, but I was determined. I'm really happy with what I came up with. I made four pendants in total - my friend has her choice. The pendants actually do look like the inside of a pomegranate! I tinted the resin red and added beads and red candy sprinkles.
Go to my Etsy shop and click into a listing to read the explaination of the pendant and the symbolism of the pomegranate.
