So, yes, I named my plant. I bought Haley my senior year of college right after Christmas break. I'd gotten back to school and was missing my baby Elmo, since, of course, I always left him at home with Mom while I was in school. So I bought Haley when she was a little thing at Super Wal-Mart in Abliene. I couldn't have a pet there, so I got a plant instead. That's why I named her. She's a tough little plant too. She went to Ohio with me for the summer and then back to Abilene that August for my last semester, since I was on the 4 1/2 year plan. I almost lost her on the trip back to Ohio that December after graduation. I'd remembered to take her into the motel for the night in Missouri, but left her in the car when we ate dinner in Indiana. But she survived! And she moved with me here. At first it looked like I wouldn't be able to take her with me to Edmonton and I cried. But now I'll be able to! Anyway, here's a picture of Haley and Elmo from a few years ago.

Look at me dragging the picture!! :)

On a completely different note, I have to wonder if Britney Spears realizes what a joke she's become. A part of me pities her and a part of me wants to smack her. Out of morbid curiosity, I watched her interview tonight with Matt Lauer. I can't even come up with the words to describe her. Bubble gum space cadet white trash kind of something? Her pregnant boobs were literally falling out of the tiny little see-through top she was wearing. Thank God she was at least wearing a bra. More than anything, I feel bad for her kids. Between her and Kevin, they don't even have a chance for normalcy. Or class.

Look at me being catty!! :P

Elmo is a cutie., not so much. Lord that is forty miles of hard road. And as for her "music" when she gets back to it...oy. No one is even interested, not her her boo's (or whatever she called them lil mutants her and K-Fed are popping out).

I've never thought that Britney could actually sing, even when she WAS popular. She might have an ok voice, but with all the synthesizing and back up vocals, hers gets lost somewhere. I have to say that she's getting picked on with the whole mothering mistakes thing....just because she's a celebrity she's not supposed to make any mistakes. We've ALL driven off without our kids buckled in safely (mind you not on our lap in the front seat).Kids DO get bumps and bruises from falling (even babies) and it doesn't mean their parents don't love them enough to not let it happen. It's kinda like adults who stub a toe or walk into a wall. It happens to the best of us. Having said that, it doesn't make up for her lack of talent. I hope she doesn't try to do anymore albums. She will fail miserably. They'll have to rely on Daddy to bring home the bacon. ;)

Oh yeah, I love that picture. Your Elmo sure was a handsome guy. And Haley too!

I agree that people are making a big deal out of stuff that happens all the time, the little bumps and mistakes that happen with babies, kids, and everyone. I think that's part of why I pity her.

I think I read that she doesn't want to do music anymore, but would like to do a sitcom. Um...
