It was 1996, my first cell phone(borrowed from hunky boyfriend). I not realizing the thing had a battery, a fully charged battery, kept it plugged into my '89 mustang. Yes, the model that a carpeted console! And well as I drove down the main strip of town noticed the smell of something burning.
"Holly Crap!", I looked down and sew the cigarette lighter it was plugged into smoking and little embers on the carpet that surrounded the ashtray. I swerved into the parking lot of our local movie store. Ran in, grabbed a soda out of the cooler by the check out counter and yelled
"I'll pay you in a SEC... I've got to put a fire!"
The employees gathered around the window and looked on as I poured soda all over the inside of my car.
I calmly walked back in. Wrote a check for a $.75 drink and walked out. That night I didn't get much sleep, peering out the window at a car I kept expecting to burst into flames. The next day it actually was still smouldering.
The boyfriend was totaly sweet about the whole thing so............ I married him!

So as always I'm running about 10 steps behind where I should be. I created this little watercolor last night as an answer to a bingo basket I was suppose to contribute to for my oldest class. The theme was Candy. As always at the last moment I grabbed the watercolors and snatched frame off a shelf... and walla!
Now this is the start of my apple doll. About two weeks ago I carved an apple into a face. Hung it over my stove to dry out after soaking it in salt and lemon water. Now that it's dried and shrunk quite a bit it's looking pretty decent. I hope it's not about to mold on that dark ear. I really should have dried it in the sun. Next step... the body and clothing.

We spent a fun evening at the local pumpkin patch. The night was filled with hay rides, pumpkins, a petting zoo, and a fun house. Oh and the best part to my kids was taking mommy into the maze... and then running off and leaving her!
And we're doing a yard sale this weekend to clear out some junk. Yes, to make way for getting more junk.
My weekend to do list:
- ATC cards for soldiers
- Pumpkin Junkin for the http://www.agirlwhocreates.com/index.html Pumpkin decorating contest.
- Apple doll work
- yard sale
- lots of hugs on the babies too

What do you do when one of the party goers and their siblings spend their time at the party hitting, kicking, and calling others stupid head? Well, ignore it I thought. But I'm not perfect. So.... at the very end one of "those siblings" punched my daughter in the side.Now I normally consider myself pretty good at self control. But at that moment I guess the mama bear came out. When I was told what happened by my daughter and the a witness said yes, she looked right at her and socked her. I Yelled " Why did you punch her?" She said I didn't. So then I looked at the party hostess and said who does she belong to? The little girl responded "my mommy". We laughed. But inside there was a tinge of she is a child... with a heart.... But still this can't go unacknowledged by her parents at least. So I told my daughter to tell her father. When she approached the girls father to tell him... he walked away not listening to my daughter at all and pulled his daughter aside. The rest of the time we were there it was unfriendly looks from the father and mother of "the siblings".
So the question: What should I have done? Was it wrong to tell my daughter to turn in the little mike Tyson in training?
