Breaking News with Maggie: Updates, Doll Wardrobe Contest, etc.

After a long hiatus in which a certain over-talkative doll we all know pretty much took over our blog, I'm back!  I have some breaking news to share with you all.

First, yes, I know I still haven't done my interview post that I promised.  But hey, if you'd been around our house in the last few weeks, you'd understand why.  All the humans were running around like chickens with their heads cut off.  Papa with work, Mama with church, school, and wedding shower obligations, and Mama's girls...well, they just run around non-stop no matter when it is!  Mama's oldest girl also finished first grade last week, so that added to the chaos. 

This craziness, along with the aforementioned tendency of other dolls to hog the computer, has made it extremely difficult to post.  I'm not even going to give a date for when my interview post will be happening, because it looks like things won't slow down much in the coming weeks.  Just hang in there, peoples.  The interview(s) will come. :}

Let's see, in other news, Mama got her wisdom teeth out today (all four at once).  Yet another reason it's great to be a doll and not have to deal with such things.  She's doing amazingly well, considering.  She's only taking Advil and isn't even all puffy like a chipmunk (I was kind of disappointed...I wanted to take some pics of her with really puffy cheeks when she wasn't looking!  Oh well, I probably would have been put on restriction for it anyway!). She's just really hoping to avoid the whole "dry socket" thing in the next few days.  It's completely nasty, so I'm not even going to go into what that actually is.  It's just me.

The other thing I wanted to mention is that our friend Nora over at  The Doll Wardrobe is having a really fun photo contest, and she just posted the pics for the first round today so that everyone can vote on their favorites.  Mama even entered.  Of course, Charlie got to be her "star doll".  Pshh...figures.  No one ever thinks to ask ME about these things.  I have a WAY more interesting personality.  I must confess I did feel a little bit better about it when Charlie asked me for advice on how to pose.  She and Mama even decided to use the picture I suggested!  Still not as good as being IN the picture, but, you know. 

Anyway, there are a lot of awesome pics.  Everyone did a great job, so be sure to check it out! (Whoa, I totally sounded like Tess or something:  "Everyone did a great job"...yikes!  I must be getting soft!)

I guess that's about all of the updates for now.  Mama and her family will be leaving next week for vacation, so she'll probably choose one of us to go with her (one of the goody two-shoes favorites, I'm sure).  The rest of us will have the place to ourselves.  Whoo-hoo!!! Maybe that's even better than a vacation! ;)  I have no clue what to expect in the next week or two as far as posting goes, but we'll just do what we can.

Hi Green Girls. :) Mama is feeling a lot better now. She's just busy scrambling around the house trying to get ready for vacation. ;)
