Being Away

I have a very good hubby! He held down the fort and took care of the Monkey while I was away for a week in Niagara/Erie with my Best Friend and Kindred Spirit Laurie.

Laurie's family has a trailer at a resort called Sherkston and we had such a good time there. We went on walks on the beach, golf cart rides(don't laugh it's fun), saw a ACDC tribute band(again don't laugh), saw the falls, went shopping in the US, watched movies, played with Laurie's adorable baby girl Charlotte, and laughed and laughed and laughed.

It was like being roomies in Windsor again. We had some really great house parties and nerdtacular times! Nothing better then friends and show tunes!

I feel like my battery has been recharged.

Monster Island

I've been busy trying to complete projects and get organized. I've been de-cluttering the house room by room starting with my Monkeys.

After packing away two big garbage bags full of clothes and tossing broken toys his room was finally ready for de-babying. No more Winnie the Pooh lamp, no more Backyardigans table and chair set, and all of his Thomas trains have been put in storage. We kept his train table, but we turned it into Monster Island.

James is a big Godzilla fan. It's all he talks about, frankly. I'm talking the classic Japanese Godzilla who battled Mothra and Rodan. He is also a big dinosaur fan! Anyhoo, we created a landscape for the top of his train table using construction paper and plastic trees and volcanoes. We also drew a backdrop with palm trees, vines and man eating plants. Last Christmas his Nama was good enough to give James a huge box of various dinos, so we have let them all make a home on Monster Island. He loves it!

Anyone know where one can purchase a flying Monster who goes by the name 'King Geedorah"?
