What Color Green Are You?

You Are Olive Green

You are the most real of all the green shades. You're always true to yourself.
For you, authenticity and honesty are very important... both in others and yourself.
You are grounded and secure. It takes a lot to shake you.
People see you as dependable, probably the most dependable person they know.

New school!

Witch School Opens.

Starting Saturday, in the unlikeliest of places, a real witch school opens its doors to the public in a place known as the Sweet Corn Capital of the World.

After almost five years of existence on the Internet, Witch School is expected to operate under normal business hours in the town of Hoopeston, Ill., about 100 miles south of Chicago.

The school is dedicated to educating the public in Wicca, a neo-Pagan religion that incorporates nature and magic into its theology. Until now the school has existed almost entirely on the Internet.


Hubbard, the Witch School's director, considers his decision to move the institution to Hoopeston as an experiment in religious tolerance. Most residents of Hoopeston are at least neutral toward Wicca and Witch School, he says.

When Witch School finally opens its doors to the public on July 1, Hubbard says he won't expect a flood of visitors, though he feels it will be a step toward acceptance as Wiccans in Hoopeston.

"Three years ago the question was did we have a right to be here," he said. "Now it's can we be successful."

Witch School.

I am so totally for religious tolerance. The article also mentions that you can actually become ordained thru Witch School. I think I'm going to investigate further, since I actually have the freedom to do so now, seeing as how my parents' religion has already kicked me out. It's not like they can shun me anymore than they do already.

So I actually took the 5 minutes to go in and add links to some of my favorite websites! Go me!

new, temporary family website

We should get the old address (without the dash) back in a month or so.

DNS Server crap

Well, for those of you that actually know both of our websites, I'm sure you're wondering wtf is wrong with our family site,

The first week after Josie was born, our domain name register expired, since Hubby was kinda distracted. We paid them their money, and it was back up 2 days later.

Yesterday, they sent him an email saying that since it expired and we didn't renew within the 30 day grace period, it was going to cost us $160 to renew it. WTF??? Anyway, he's trying to get the issue resolved. Hopefully it will be back up soon, I've got a camera full of pictures I need to upload!

Hives (blech)

So Matthew was covered in hives all over his body, the poor thing. It looked so bad, but he was pretty happy during the whole episode, although he did lay on the floor and watch tv pretty much for an entire week, since his joints hurt so much.

He is much better now, the hives are completely gone. Yay! We still have a follow-up appt on Monday with the doctor, but he looks and acts normal again. Well, other than a total addiction to Blues Clues (someone shoot me, I hear that song in my sleep!)

In house related news, I finally bought a bed frame for our queen-size mattress! I bought this one:Granted, it looks like this in my room:but still. The picture doesn't really do it justice, it looks so nice. I'm probably going to just get some material and make my own canopy/scarf thingie.

4-day weekend

Hubby has Monday & Tuesday off for the holiday, although we don't have any plans what-so-ever.

Which is probably a good thing, seeing as how we started off the weekend last night by taking Matt to the Emergency Room.

He looks like he's covered in chigger bites, but apparently he's allergic to something, and just broke out in hives. His joints are also swollen and tender, another side effect (one that really freaked me out).

He has to take a steroid for 5 days, and OTC Childrens Benadryl until the hives go away.

We have no freakin clue what he may be allergic to. It's not even baby sisters, since this has happened before, but we just thought it was flea bites. It may possibly be cat dander, but seeing as how we've had two cats for his entire life, I'm really not for sure on that one either.

Oh well, crisis averted, now if only the two of us parents could stop all the worst-case scenerios from running through our heads.
