Explosions at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England. At least 19 dead, 50 injured. God.

Gabby is on her way. I found a great deal on her, and she shipped yesterday.

My family has officially joined the Episcopal Church. Methodists no more! Our rector was installed at St. Paul's last week, and we joined then (can only be done when the bishop is there).

Holy crap.

Trump fired FBI Director Comey today. And AG Sessions wants to shut down the Russian investigation. THIS IS THE KIND OF SHIT NIXON PULLED. I hope Comey really spills his guts now. Get this corrupt administration out.

Tiny Gabriela has arrived. She is so stinking cute. I can't wait to get the full sized doll.

Macron defeats right wing nut job Le Pen. Proof that France is smarter than the United States.

So, it looks like British media is about to activate RATS- radio alert transmission system, or as it’s jokingly known, Royal about to snuff it. All Royal staff called to Buckingham Palace at 3 a.m., not usually good news. Rumors are flying that Prince Phillip is either dead or dying. He made an appearance today, but when you’re 95 and have had recent health problems, things can change in literally a heartbeat. So I won’t be surprised if my friends across the pond wake up to the “This is BBC News from London” special program (sorry, PROGRAMME, :p) interruption. The Palace doesn't release that kind of info until eight in the morning, so it will be the middle of the night for news here.

2017, please don’t take the Queen yet. I don’t think they’re ready!

Boy, am I having flashbacks to the death of Princess Diana. My uncle Chuck had died the day before, and my parents had driven out to Ohio for the funeral. They called to check in just as the news was breaking about Diana on MSNBC. I still don't remember why I was up so late that night, but I was glued to the screen.

ETA: Prince Phillip is NOT dead, he's just officially retiring from public life.

Coco is more or less fixed. The band I used is a little loose, so I need to tighten it. But she's in one piece! Next, I have to clean her outfit and fix her hair.

I did a little spring playtime shoot with Melody. She walked her little dog, climbed a dogwood tree, and blew dandelion seeds.

mollybarton: (gag)
Look at my poor Coco doll! She's literally been loved to pieces. :p Of course a twenty-year-old doll is going to have her rubber band break. Poor thing needs major surgery and clean up!

Jess exploring Katie's backyard and old barn.

Easter at St. Paul's:

Extra mini Lea doll in a special outfit/display. I may keep the outfit and sell the base and doll.


War games.

Quantico is going overboard with their artillery exercises today. BOOM BOOM BOOM SHAKE SHAKE. This is not helping my headache. And poor Rory is hiding.

Easter was nice. My first Easter at my new church! The choir did a good job.

I spent Holy Week at Katie's house to dog sit, because she and Sam were in NYC. They had a good time. I always love to watch Giada.

I'll post my photos later. They're already uploaded and edited, but I'm posting from my tablet. I did a doll photo shoot, and I did a Christmas project that I want to show off. Plus the church looked pretty on Easter Sunday.

I had some good ebay business this month, so I may be buying Gabriela earlier than planned. Her mini doll is out in two weeks, so I might have both arrive at the same time! I'm very tempted by Z after seeing her collection (she's out next week), but Gabi comes first!

Movie day!

I saw Beauty and the Beast yesterday. I was a little worried about how it would be, because the animated film is one of my favorite movies of all time. I shouldn't have worried. It was beautifully done, and Emma Watson was just lovely as Belle. The original songs were intact (and yes, Emma can sing), and some new music was added. The set design and costumes were great, and the CGI Beast and objects/furniture were life like. There was a little more backstory about Belle added, and really made her character more real. And Gaston was an even bigger asshole than in the original!

Today has not been a good day. Terrible storms in my area. I've been feeling like complete crap for two days. Can't tell if it's the weather, a depressive episode, some kind of illness, or all of the above. I wanted to stay in bed most of the day. And now I have a migraine.

And oh yeah, we're going to war. Trump has started bombing Syria, and the only thing that is going to accomplish is pissing off Putin and Russia.

And Don Rickles died. Yeah, he was ninety, but it's still sad. RIP, you hockey puck!

Had a very successful shopping trip this week, though. Three new dresses, a new purse, a top, and a pair of leggings. Katie took me to her crack dealer- AKA a LuLaRoe party/open house. She bought me a dress as payment for watching Giada last weekend!

Current music- Frank Zappa’s “Why Does it Hurt When I Pee?”

Why? Because I had a cystoscopy (bladder scope) today, and (TMI alert) it hurts to pee and also I’m peeing out blood. Yuck. At least the test was clear. Yay.

The test itself was uncomfortable and there was pinching involved. And I had to race to the bathroom as soon as I was dressed again.

And did I mention I have to do this again in six months, just in case?

I am still awake because I'm a bit nervous about tomorrow. I'm having a cystoscopy. It's not going to be fun. This is just a last test to rule out anything not seen in my kidney/abdomen ultrasounds and CT scans. Hopefully I'll get good results.

To cheer myself up, I'm going to do a bit of shopping before I check in (the medical center is right behind Jo Ann Fabric and Kohl's). Later in the week I'm picking up my new dress for Easter!

A more cheerful note- new doll outfits! Rebecca has a new spring dress, Melody gets a play outfit, and Maryellen is dressed up like a majorette! (The majorette outfit is Our Generation, but it suits ME and Melody so well!)


I can't get over how freaking cute Maryellen is! I got the outfit because it reminds me of photos of Aunt Pauletta in her majorette outfit.

I also put together a little bookcase for the mini dolls:

Not much else going on. I went to the Casino Night sponsored by Mom's Rotary club, and it was okay. I got to dress up, at least! And Katie took me to a mini wine tasting- five samples for free when she picked up her wine order. She's determined to turn me into a wine lover. I have photos from both events that I'll post later.

I'm house sitting for Katie twice before Easter, which will give me time to cross stitch. Sarah's new baby girl is due in May, and I need to get cracking on her birth sampler!

I just got new spring outfits for Kit and Ruthie, so I took them into the garden to pose them with the daffodils.

There's going to be a cold snap this weekend with possible snow, so I thought I'd better get the photos while I still could...

One more doll. Mini Tenney arrived. I gave her a little guitar.

She's very cute, but I still have no interest in the big doll or her collection (or her boy companion).

I try to take good care of my teeth, but now I'm having trouble with my jaw. I've had pain in the jaw several times this winter, and my dentist thinks I'm clenching my teeth while I sleep. She asked if I have been under stress lately, and I damn near laughed. Yeah, you could say that. Brother in law dying, driven away from my church, Trump being elected president, world going to hell. But I didn't say any of that. Also, my bite is slipping to one side. No wonder I'm always biting the inside of my cheek! She showed me some exercises and massage to do with my jaw, and they help, but she also wants me to get a mouth guard to wear at night. Oh, fun. And to top it off, I have a cavity in a spot that's almost impossible to fill (right below the gum line, next to the pocket where my wisdom tooth was). That is going to be painful.

My Atlanta trip isn't until June, but I found a perfect doll luggage set for whichever doll goes with me!

Jess models the set.

The mid sized bag has little toiletries!

Dolly toothbrush and nail clippers. LOL!

The suitcase is big enough for an extra outfit, pajamas, slippers, shoes, and even a little doll. The neck pillow from the set fits in there, too!

This is from a month ago. Dead tree fell, smashed my mom's much loved bench to pieces. It wasn't windy, the tree just fell.

That was a very sturdy bench. Think about what it could have done to a person. Yikes!
