other appropriate titles for this post:
the skirt that very nearly sent me to the loony bin
the skirt that gave my sewing machine arthritis
my husband is married to a crazy person

In other (less important) news...Julia is now a big six month old
She is still not rolling over nor is she showing any interest in doing so (cue judgmental dual eyebrow raise) but she does have one tooth, sleeps through the night and enjoys playing with dirty wet washcloths, plastic grocery sacks and sharp knives.
That's all I wrote for today.
