dark circles are sexy...

Mothers around the world should all band together declaring that the dark circles under our eyes are sexy. Sometimes it is impossible to sleep, and this is not our fault. Why should we be punished by having to apply layers of concealer to hide the circles that soothing away nightmares and taking care of late night hungry tummies gave us? I say fie! That's right, fie! A pox on the makeup industry and the lies that say that dark circles and rumpled clothes are not sexy. We moms must band together and stand up against the falsehoods that the media puts forth. Motherhood and all of the stretchmarks, weight gains, dark circles, ponytails, and jelly hand prints are sexy. Deal with it America!

With that out of my system, I will continue on to something else.

Renting homes really bites. I love the house we live in now, but we need more space. After becoming quite attached to two different homes that we looked at and having the owners of the homes tack on more things here and there that made us not want to rent them we have decided to buy. I think we are going to look in Kuna first. Our current landlord happens to be a fantastic guy and a semi-retired real-estate agent. He already has a list of places he wants us to drive by, and from those we will pick some to go and look at on the inside. I'm nervous and excited and I can't wait to see where this adventure leads.

I'd like to second the bit about dark circles for those of us who are not mothers, just genetically blessed with pretty purple skin. Heh.

Good luck finding a house. <3 you.
