Hopefully, the "new neighbors" will be able to move in sometime mid May. I'll keep you posted. Right now I am going to watch "The Money Pit"!!!!

Here is my grandma, my cousin Shannon and Julie with their Barbie cakes. Julie is the girl in the front with the orange Barbie cake. You'll see better in the next picture where she dives in face first to eat her!!
Yep! That's my girl......the Barbie carnivore!! Notice how Shannon is gently stroking Barbie's hair while Julie is eating her Barbie. Her kids are SO like her!!!!!

And here are the new neighbors! I was on the bus to bowling yesterday when I got the text from Tom that the house was ours so I quickly called Julie to tell her. Linnea answered the phone and I told her that I had a really big secret to tell her. So I tell her about the house and she immediately begins screaming! Screaming so loud that people near me on the bus could hear her! It was sweet! But there'll be no more screaming once they're my neighbors!!!

At one point today I looked at the calendar and realized that exactly three months (92 days) from today is our last day of school! That doesn't seem too bad. Don't get me wrong - I love my job - but this has been a difficult year, to say the least! So putting the remainder of the school year in countdown terms helps make it go by a little faster for me. Weird....I know.
My other countdowns: Florida (25 days), Chicago (53 days), Christmas (291 days).
I should probably figure out how many days until the wedding, huh?

- Full name is Barbara Millicent Roberts - named after her creator's daughter.
- Attended Willows High School but graduated from Manhattan International High.
- Barbie has owned more than 40 pets including a lion cub, a zebra and a panda.
- The first Barbie cost $3. The most expensive Barbie to sell on ebay sold for $7,999.99 and a 1959 mint condition Barbie would sell for $27,450.
- Has more than 1 billion pairs of shoes. (Yeah!)
- There have been NASCAR Barbies, astronaut Barbies, Malibu Barbies Doctor Barbies and teacher Barbies (who were recalled for not wearing panties....hmmm.)
Lest you think I know this stuff because I'm a Barbie fan, let me set the record straight......I got all these useless facts from today's Free Press.....I was not allowed to play with Barbie when I was a kid - my mom thought they were unrealistic and trashy. But don't worry, all my friends had Barbies and I played with them at my friends houses!! And my girls all had Barbies - LOTS of them!
