...Okay, but I Don't Know Why You'd Care...

I've hesitated updating my blog because I really haven't had much by way of inspiration lately. Don't misunderstand: I am enjoying my new life and new experiences... It's just that it doesn't seem like anyone reading my blog would be interested in what I'm doing. Do you care, for example, that I have cooked four meals already as a wife (burritos, lasagna, chicken cordon bleu, and stir-fry)? Do you care that my rice was not too sticky, my snickerdoodles turned out beautifully, I succeeded at banana bread muffins and chocolate chip cookies, and even my apple crisp wasn't too shabby? Does it matter to you that I went to the dollar store today and bought four clear squirt bottles so I could fill them with windex and disinfectant spray, just so my under-the-sink kitchen cupboard will look spiffy and uniform (reminiscent of Martha, friend to the masses)?

Probably not.

Do you, as a blog reader and (very likely) an employed member of society, care that, because Immigration Canada says I can't work until my papers go through, I have instead organized my closet--and Kyle's--color-coordinating both for easy access? I doubt it.

So you see, though I enjoy what I am doing, I have a hard time believing that anyone else would take delight in it.

Aside from that, the only news is that Kyle went to get his teeth (or lack thereof) inspected by the dentist and the specialists today. Not one, not two, not three, not four, five, or six, but seven thousand dollars is what it would cost to get them fixed properly. Three zeros. That would pay off the car I left in Mesa. (Anyone want to buy a '99 white Toyota Camry?)

I told Kyle that I'm used to the toothless him, and he shouldn't base his decision on whether or not I mind his new look. I mean, who could resist this face?

First, I have to say that I found your blog by googling Jenny Biggs Photography. I'm so glad I found it. You crack me up! I love the pictures and I do care about all those things you've been doing to fill your days. I can't imagine what I'd do with all that free time. Well, I can imagine and it would be wonderful. Enjoy every phase of your life- that's my unsolicited opinion. Things change so fast.
I am curious about why your husband has missing teeth? What's the story behind that?

Camille darling, the whole purpose of blogging isn't to be please the masses, it's to make you happy and share stuff about your life. Write about whatever you like! We like to read about you, and if matching squirt bottles are a part of you, we will enjoy it(I did anyways). And I personally commend you on your culinary endeavors. It is no small feat by any means.

Actually you writing about all your amazing organizing skills etc is inspiring and lets me know a little more about you so keep it up. It is those simple everyday things that are more a part of us than anything so keep it coming.

I most certainly care. Please keep the updates coming...It helps me feel less disconnected (I think that actually might be a double-negative) from you and your Canadian life. You are the new Betty Crocker! I hope you're making all those delicious pastries sugar-free...And, go get your thyroid checked, by the way! I think I'm going to nag you about that every time I talk/write to you. Although, this will probably backfire on me because you'll spitefully wait to get tested. This would be self-destructive, however, so I hope that's not the case. At any rate, thanks for the toothless picture! It certainly brought a smile to my face. Poor Kyle, indeed!

i wish i had the motivation and desire for things like making "my under-the-sink kitchen cupboard look spiffy and uniform..." sounds lovely.

and i hear no front teeth is the new hot trend with the kids this season. he pulls it off beautifully.
