I have a problem every once in a while where I'm very sensitive to sound and in most cases it results in a migraine. I have a loud 6 year old, so usually the migraine comes. Today my migraine is thanks to the men working on my neighbors deck.

Originally I thought they would be working on the side of our condo, which admittedly scared me. The fellow who is in charge is an unlicensed contractor and was hired by us twice. After the second job he did we noticed some things ... like a board not nailed down on our deck.

For now, I'll just be thankful he's working on our neighbors deck and not the side of our building.

Let me confess my love ...

During the very late 90's my mother got into this idea that Susan's Summerize was right for me. We got the package, it came with an apron, and then the box sat under the sofa table until it had enough dust to kill someone with dust allergies. The only remaining item from that package to date is the apron.

I then discovered a lovely blog called Tie One On and my love for aprons grew! I have to say they are my favorite kitchen items. I've spent the weekend looking at Aprons over at Etsy and have made quite a wish list!!

The Lost Clothing

Ah, the joys of elementary school. The land of the lost hats. My son is speech and developmentally delayed so we have to rely on the teachers more than usual. So heres a quick run down of the lost clothing situation.

I'll send my son to school with a blue and red hat, he'll come back with no hat what so ever. So, the next day I will send him to school with a black hat, and send a note mentioning the blue and red hat.

He will again, come home with no hat. I will send him to school with a maroon hat, with a note mentioning the blue and red hat and the black hat.

He will come home with some hat we lost at the beginning of winter ... aside from the blue and red, black and maroon hats.

We keep going through this cycle. Even worse is I've noticed he'll come home with his hat, only to realize it's not his hat. It's his hats twin brother.

So I'm getting a new hat, but it'll be so different from his classmates hats that his teachers can keep better track of it.
First of all ... It'll be a dinosaur hat from Dino Haven. I'm going to customize it with colors, woo, that he absolutely loves. It'll be bright and noticeable. It will also have his initials on it .... with a cute twist of having it echoed in leet. Then, I will tell everyone in that damn school what to look for.
