DH made a wonderful dinner last night with steaks on the grill, baked potato, salad & garlic bread. We lingered at the dinner table and just talked after DD went upstairs.
Up at 4:30 to make it on the bus to DM for our annual visit to the Capitol. So tired...

I'm a girl who likes quiet. My DH, on the other hand, likes to fall asleep to the sound of talk radio or a fan whirring. I cannot. I guess that falls under the ever-growing column of my neurotic tendencies. It's enough to deal with all the voices inside my head, let alone ambient noise!
Lots of ambient noise around me right now, and not just the kind that registers on a decibel meter. My soul is troubled, my heart fears. I've been known to worry things into existence, but these concerns are real. I'm not even sure what to pray for, but I keep praying. The Lord is always near.
DD lost another tooth this morning. Last night at dinner, it was tethered in her mouth by the tiniest piece of skin. I was scared that she would swallow it in her sleep . . . the tooth fairy doesn't leave money for those, you know! This morning, she warily came into the bathroom and asked me if I would pull it. I picked up a damp washcloth, and swiftly and painlessly pulled the sucker out. She was very relieved -- as was I.

Then, she got the idea to have her stuffed animal, Alicia, help her with the task. She tied one end of a piece of dental floss to her tooth and the other end to Alicia's paw. She then threw Alicia and shrieked. The tooth was gone:
The "toothless wonder"
Pheasant on Saturday morning - - notice his tail is clumped with ice and snow. Same pheasant the next day - - he lost some of the ice & snow. He hangs out on the edge of the pine wind break and has enjoyed some of the feast.

Why go in to work on a day like this, you ask? Because it gets me closer to Des Moines so I can see these guys tonight with some girlfriends. We're staying at a hotel across the street from the concert venue, so we won't have to drive home afterwards. Woo hoo!! Love me some music.
