She calls herself a simpleton who shies away from people.  But last Sunday, if it weren't for her, none of us would've discovered the great mexican restaurant at the corner of our street. 

We had worked hard, all day long.

Gigi came from behind the Orange Curtain. 

Robbie came from The Valley.

Clearing boxes, cleaning glassware, pots, pans and tupperware.  Unpacking towels, clothes, vases, framed artwork.  It was one of our most productive days.

All day I'd been eyeing the bottles of wine, waiting for a break in the work.  Finally around 2:30, after my third or fourth try to tempt the Yakkies into getting our wine-on, Gigi announced that it's five o'clock somewhere.  Time for a wine, cheese and bread break.  A break that turned into the end of our work day.

We spent a good long hour cackling and giggling our way through a bottle of red.  At least, I think it was red.  Maybe more like a plumb color.  It complimented my crushed fingernail.

When it became close to actually being 5:00 our time, I was pretty lit.  Andi got a burst of energy, Let's go to dinner!  "A tavern? Around the corner? I'm there," chirped Gigi, who just moments before was gearing up to hit the road for a little romantic barbeque with the hubs.  Robbie was ready to give Andi a tour of Hollywood.  I was ready for bed.

The next thing I knew, Andi flitted out of her bedroom, cute as can be, ready to paint the town!

Yeah, she's doing juuuuuust fine!

Great entry, Trishy! You're so good to mention all the help Gigi and Robbie have been. Man, I haven't written squat about 'em because it seems I'm too busy complaining.

Whoa, that must mean it's time for wine.

Glad to hear from you Trish.  Andi is leading us to believe she won't walk out of the house (until the composite today).  Glad to know that she really is doing fine.  Great pics!!!

If you and Andi are sick of the day to day, the 9 to 5 . . .
            you ought to collaborate and write a book.  I just know you could write something that would be terrific.  Just a thought.  It's almost 2:30 in the morning and I think the Pixie's stopped a moment and sprinkled a little pixie dust on my shoulders.  HEY! Even Pixilated, I still think it's a really good idea!!!

Oh, gosh ~ I've been so busy this week I just saw this ~ how adorable!  I love the slideshow, and it's plain to see that little pixie Andi is learning to love the camera like a native....or is it the other way around?  Hey, now it's really picking the heck do you do that?  Nevermind; I won't understand.

Got any more boxes?  I'll do anything for a glass of wine and some Yak time at the local cantina... :)
