Hi :)

Well, I don't have much to report today, but I do want to be better at trying to post a little something once a week.  :}

We were quite spoiled for most of the month with lovely, spring-like weather, but this week we were hit with a big rainstorm.  Beast'sbelle's middle daughter came down with a bad cold, too.  So between those two things, we've pretty much been stuck on top of the curio, bored stiff.

No headway has been made with Ben and Isabella.  I think she's interested in him, but he's as stubborn as ever.  I hope something works out between them.  Ben could use someone to soften his rough edges, and Isabella's really sweet.  Although, I must admit, the fact that she changes her outfit almost every 5 minutes (going elsewhere to actually change, of course!) gets a little tiring.  I know she has "over 100 fashions", but I don't see why we have to observe all 100 of them every day!

Robby's hip and leg have really been bothering him with the colder weather.  Beast'sbelle's house is not insulated, and the room we stay in is at the end of the house, so it gets pretty chilly.  He still does his daily walks to help loosen things up, but this week we've had to keep to our room instead of roaming the hall and the living room.

I wish I could take away his pain.  It's so sad to see him suffering.  He doesn't like to draw attention to himself and has a pretty good attitude about it, but I know him, so I can tell, perhaps more than the others, how much it hurts.  He always tells me that just knowing I'm his makes all the pain go away.  I wish it were true, but I'm glad I can help at least a little. :)

Well, that's about all I have time for today.  I'll try to have something more interesting later.  For now, I've got to go.  There are others waiting to use the computer, and not all of them are very patient (yes, I'm talking to you, Maggie!).  Talk to you again soon!

I feel your pain! Our house is super cold, because my dad likes to save money! It doesn't help that I'm home schooled here all day too :} I hope beasts'belle's older girl feels better.

beast'sbelle said...

Thanks for commenting, girls. Beast'sbelle's daughter is on the mend, but she had to miss a whole week of school. :(

I hope you feel better soon, Savanah! And Claire, it's nice to know we're not the only one in a cold house. I'm sure your dad is trying to be wise with your finances, though, and that's always a good thing. I'm sure you're getting good use out of all of your warm clothes, though. :)

I hope everything gets better! I can kinda relate to Robby now because I've sprained my ankle :( Hope nothing bad happens to anyone (more than already)!

beast'sbelle said...

Oh, sorry to hear that, vkpixie! Robby sends his condolences, too.

I always like hearing from you Belle!! :D

Elliebob said...

Does Robby ever get on your blog? My youth group pastor and his wife share a blog, and they both write in it. I think a post from rObby would be fun!! :D no pressure to either of you though. :}

vkpixie said...

thanks but Robby needs it more than me. Get well soon Robby!

beast'sbelle said...

Thanks, Elliebob and vkpixie. I'll pass the message on to Robby.

Elliebob, Robby's never done a post before. I don't know if he'd be interested or not. That would be fun, though. Maybe I can persuade him to do a guest post sometime. ;)

Ha ha, I just saw that Disney finally made a short-haired, brunette Rapunzel. Unfortunately, she's a mini (I think) and she only comes with a wedding set that has Mother Gothel...You probably don't want her around....

vkpixie said...

that would be so much fun! You should ask!

beast'sbelle said...

Yeah, we're not big fans of Mother Gothel over here (for obvious reasons).

I might just do that, vkpixie. I don't know if he'll say yes, but it wouldn't hurt to ask. :)

vkpixie said...

cool! I can't wait to find out if he will! ;)

Have you asked?

Hi, this is Belle. No, not a girl named Belle, a fashion doll. Yep, a fashion doll. Who says the 18" dolls have to have all the fun? Anyway, to avoid confusion, call be Belle-Marie. My person gives all her Belle dolls nicknames to tell them apart, and mine is Belle-Marie. Weird, but I'm luckier than Bellabelle. Lol! Your life is much more exciting than mine, mine is just wander around the bedroom and hope the girls don't see us. Hmm, I have an idea. Try to find something that both Isabelle and Ben like and try to get Isabelle talking about it, and maybe Ben will join in!

beast'sbelle said...

Hi, vkpixie. Yes, I did get a chance to talk to Robby. He said he'd be willing to do a post or two in the future. :) I'm not sure when it will be.

Hi Belle-Marie! :) It's nice to meet another Belle doll my size. And I agree...your name is loads better than Bellabelle! ;)

Thanks for the suggestions on getting Isabella and Ben together. I must confess, I'm really tempted to try to help things along, but Robby detests matchmaking in any form, so I'm trying to be good for his sake. We'll see what happens. :}

Belle

vkpixie said...

Thanks for asking him!

I know that you shouldn't play matchmaker but still....it could work.... think of it like this your just trying to get them to talk and maybe become friends nothing else. I think you should use Belle-Marie's idea!

Elliebob said...

Yay! I hope another post is up soon. :)

Sorry for commenting on every post you do but I can't help it. I have to confess I bought a Mother Gothel to go with Rapunzel, BUT I also got an Eugene. Now they look fabulous. I'm also wondering if I should get the new Rapunzel. I saw Beast'sbelle's review of her and I liked her. Did you saw her Belle? What's she like? How long is her hair? By the way, you're more beautiful than 2012 Belle.

beast'sbelle said...

Thanks for the comments, everyone. :)

Mulan_Fan95, I was only able to get a small glimpse of Beast'sbelle's new Rapunzel doll before she was sent to her new home. Of course, I'm partial to the earlier version because she's my best friend. ;) I think the newer Rapunzel is very pretty, though. Her hair wasn't nearly as long...I think it went about to her calves or something like that. I know Beast'sbelle would definitely recommend her, though.

I hope to have another mini post up this week! :)

Angela, thank you for sharing. I'm glad your daughter is enjoying her doll, and I'm sure Beast'sbelle will be glad too. :)
