This, That and The Other Thing

I'm happy to report that the ant situation is under control, but it did require a visit by the new Bug Man. I wasn't home when he first arrived, so poor Syd got the honor of hearing about all of his chemical preparations. She fled to her room after I got home, so I got to hear exactly where he sprayed all of his goodies and from whence all those pesky little critters were invading our home. Man, that dude is some kind of serious about his job.

Syd's Senior Prom is coming up in a couple of weeks and alterations on her dress are finally finished. We ordered it months ago and against our better judgement, ordered the size the dress shop recommended. When it got here I knew immediately that it was too big. But, since it was a special order there was no returning it. So, we took it to a good friend, who also happens to be an awesome seamstress, and she worked her sewing magic and took nearly four inches out of the back bodice of the dress, basically resizing it. Now, looks like they are set to go - all of the other plans are in place. Limo, dinner reservations, flowers and tux.

Oh yeah, My Boy Nelson has a new look! What do you think? I love the new banner and the fresh colors. The Design Girl freshened up the old blog and I really like it - a few of you have already noticed and I appreciate your comments!
