Jury Duty & Other Things

First, I want to start out with sympathy to all the families that were unjustly hurt by yesterday's shooting. The congresswoman is doing much better today, thank goodness. And I am sick and tired of the 'CIA terminology' that the gunman was a loner. There is no such thing in today's society, so quit printing that BS. We don't buy it anymore, we are not the sheep you think we are. And that is all I'm saying on that subject.

Next, we are looking for a new house. We have found an area we like here in the springs. The houses are bigger and the lots make it where your neighbor is a little further away. But, the prices are higher then we want to pay. So, we will keep looking in that area till a home comes up with a better price. We would just like to have more room and be in a neighborhood that's more our speed.

It is snowing here today and the boys are really bummed. They look like they just lost their best friend and I feel that to them, the sun is their best friend :)

My husband has jury duty this Tuesday, his stress level has hit an all time high because of it. He has had 2 hypoglycemic attacks since Thursday. He almost passed out at the store on Thursday, I was able to get him to the car and have him eat some cheese and crackers with a soda. He needs to eat at least 5 times a day (small snacks in between meals) to keep from an attack. You can't do that in a courthouse. I don't know what I'm going to do. I will be going with him, I'll be taking a banana with me to give to him at 10:00 (I hope they let me bring it in), then we'll get lunch and I'll buy something to give to him at 2:00. I am hoping with all my heart that we will not be there that long but you never know. My stress is raising and I'm trying to keep it in check so I can help him. Today, I'm having him rest. Thank goodness there is football on :)

So, thats it for my little corner of the world. Hope all of you are doing well

American Girl Archiving Felicity & Elizabeth

American Girl is one of my favorite doll stores and they are archiving Felicity & Elizabeth. These two dolls are the colonial dolls that they make. Now, they will become collector dolls because they will no longer be made.
American Girl dolls used to cost $95 but they raised the price at the beginning of the year to $100. These two dolls will increase in price because of being archived, American Girl will sell them till there are no more. Which I heard they have already sold out. I'm still going to give the store here in Colorado a call to see if they have any left.
take care everyone :)

Busy, Busy, Busy

My little doll store has been busy today. I sold my last American Girl Samantha Doll. It was the 1st time I had a used doll in my store, I usually don't do used items. But, I love the Samantha doll and I had to make sure she got a good home.
So, tomorrow she is off to her new owner. I've sold a lot today and been busy getting things out. I had a new customer from Hawaii. I've never sold to anyone in Hawaii or Alaska, so this will be a 1st for me.
So, off I go just wanted to say hi to everyone and let ya know I'm still here :)
