One hermit died

Sadly, one of our big hermit crabs died. Either sunsun or sunshine. I think it was sunsun.
I’m not sure why.
I’m debating about telling The boys or just burying him without telling the boys….
I don’t feel that tossing him in the trash would be proper. Maybe I should put him in the compost pile……
I’m really heart broken……

Update: I believe the dead hermit is sunshine as sunshine was always the shy one and sunsun is always the one who easily pops his head out of his shell to say hello…. The big one that is left easily pops out when I call him….

I told my oldest yesterday that his crab died. My oldest had me unbury/exhume the poor crab do that he could see for himself….
I figured this would be the case so before burying the crab I placed him in a big clam shell and in a paper bag…. So he was easy to find.

Update: 5/12/12: about 2 weeks ago I bought 3 tiny ones…. They’ve disappeared in the habitat…. Probably molting…..

Yellow-poplar Magnoliaceae Liriodendron tulipifera .


The tulip poplar was designated as the official state tree of Tennessee by Public Chapter 204 of the Acts of the 1947 General Assembly. The act stated that, as no state tree had ever before been designated, the adoption of an official tree seemed appropriate. The tulip poplar was chosen “because it grows from one end of the state to the other” and “was extensively used by the pioneers of the state to construct houses, barns, and other necessary farm buildings.”

the other day I temporarily lost my car keys do I had to walk the kids to school. On the walk home after I had blown off some steam (anger at myself) I noticed these flowers littering the sidewalk.



I’ve been off

So, I recently joined my library online through something called overdrive.
I’ve been demolishing romantic trash for the last couple weeks because it is an online library and books are “due” to be returned at a certain time. So, I’ve been reading and reading romantic sappy stuff by Christine feehan and reading sci-fi from Anne Mccaffrey… So ice been to busy to Facebook or blog, which is good. I needed a break.
So here are some funnies, sarcasms and Inspirationals for you
