Beware! Pirates!!!

Scary, aren't they? I mentioned in a previous post that my two youngest Tory (left) and Tessa (right) wanted to be pirates for Halloween. I couldn't resist posting a picture of them in all their pirate glory.
I also wanted to take a few minutes to direct you to some really great posts. Mrs. 4444, the Martha Stewart of blogging (no, she REALLY is), had a great post about raising kids, and it is GOLDEN advice. Instead of typing my own version, since I agree with her's 100%, you should all go read about it here: http://www.halfpastkissintime.com/2008/11/respect.html .
Another place to check out is Rhea's blog, http://texaswordtangle.blogspot.com/ . She is having a SUPER giveaway, and even though she's a Texan (I'll overlook it Rhea), she's got a great blog!
Okay, now I'll move on to my latest gripe. I have read that so many people become addicted to blogging, or to facebook, or to twitter. NOT ME! I can not stay away from Craigslist. I read random ads, just for the heck of it. I click on the free stuff section ALL the time, just KNOWING I'm going to find some great treasure (I haven't). I need to find a support group for this. Anybody else out there have a site, game, or something on-line that they just can't seem to stay away from for more than an hour at a time? Enquiring minds wanna know!

Absolutely darling. And when you showed your two pirates that you uploaded the photo to your blog, I could hear them saying... "MOM!". lol

That's what mine would say anyway.

I definitely foresee a problem with your two pirates in the near future. They're probably going to have too many pirates trying to come into their life.

From mine to yours. She's 17.

Your girls are so cute all dressed up!

I am just addicted to the internet in general and not anyone site. I agree that Craigslist is great though - espeically the best of Craigslist section - that is always entertaining!

Tory looks a little impatient, like maybe, just maybe, that plastic sword will be put to use.


We've all got our little addictions. I go a little nuts when I hit a nerve with my work blog and get tons and tons of comments. (Who knew Sarah Palin would be so controversial the day after an election?)

Go ahead...indulge with yours.

My Husband reads Craiglist morning noon and night...i can attest to its addictiveness, lol!
On a BSG note, I wrote the little snob snippet on Rhea's blog...mind you this is not the snob talking, it's the concerned citizen. I'm a remake snob as well, you gotta try it man. Try not thinking of it as a remake, it is it's own show, nothing like the original, took the very basic premise and raaan! It's like heaven on tv and as a concerned citizen and a lover of all humans I beg you, watch the first season...may the gods be with you:-)

Those are some pretty adorable pirates! ARG!!

Thanks for the shout out!! You've earned some extra entries.

I'm not going to apologize for living in Texas. heehee

I'm addicted to Bejeweled and Soduko on my phone...

I also check Craig's List daily, but mainly for jobs...

You are the sweetest, my friend :) Easy to see that sweetness right through those adorable bandits, too! Thanks for the linky love :)
