Grand Champion

After all the hours of hard work, frustration, exhaustion, and tears, I'm proud to announce Amanda took Grand Champion for her collection. Considering what happened a little over two weeks ago, I'm still stunned and amazed. She worked very hard at getting everything in order. Of course, I was the one who had to make sure everything was in order.

I love the big purple ribbon

Besides this entry, she also received 13 1st place, 10 2nd place, and 1 3rd place ribbons.

Now maybe I can rest for a little while? Nah, I don't think so :)

The Humanity!

Tonight, Amanda pretty much destroyed one of her collections. I'm really quite angry still, even though it's been a couple hours since it happened. She's up late now, fixing whatever can be repaired, while I'm up watching her. My husband thought it was unfair for me to be critical, as I told her to not play around them. He still treats her like she's 4 or 5 years old. I'm then the one who has to deal with her attitude. I hope it doesn't happen again, because if it does, that's the end of her 4-H career. I don't need this nonsense :(

Here's the picture pre-destruction:

I won't even consider posting the post-destruction box. She will be angry with me, and it won't do either of us any good.

Which Disney Princess Are You?

I was stunned about my results:

Which Disney Princess Are You?

You are Cinderella. You are hard-working and never complain, however, your trust is sometimes misplaced and people sometimes take advantage of you. Still, you are beautiful inside and out, and one day you will realize it and find true love.

Now, in the past people may have taken advantage of me, but over the last fifteen years or so I would say that's not true. Maybe I should take the quiz again :)

Took the quiz again, and here are my results (I changed only two answers):

Which Disney Princess Are You?

You are part Ariel. You are beautiful but impaired. At times you are naïve. Still, your innocence and good heart make you sought after and loved.
You are part Belle. You are strong, deep, and you are not a slave to petty superficial things. You are independent and allow yourself to see inner beauty without sacrificing your values. You are almost too good of a person.

I could see being Belle, but not Ariel or Cinderella. Oh well :)
