I Feel Like A Frog In A Pot Of Boiling Water

I love Facebook. I love the ability to stay in touch with people and spread word of things quickly. But I’m wondering why Facebook has felt the need to change so much. Little by little, they’ve taken things away, so now we are left with a completely different Facebook than we started with. In fact, I hardly remember the Facebook I started with, but I DO remember that I liked it better. Just bring it back!!!

Ten Facts

Ten Random Facts About Me:

1-I used to sell the sandwiches from my lunches in elementary school to the highest bidder. They were that good. I guess my mom just has a knack for making stellar sandwiches.

2-Jesse (my husband) is the one and only person I’ve ever kissed.

3-I am crazy decisive and love making decisions.

4-I have a talent at rewriting the words to songs. Wayne Brady ain’t got nothing on me.

5-I’ve never been in a limo.

6-I hate having my sheets tucked in because it is absolutely necessary for one foot to escape at any given moment.

7-Just the thought of going “caving” or scuba diving gives me a panic attack, which leads me to believe I’m more claustrophobic than I ever knew. On the flip side, I would go skydiving in a heart beat.

8-I’m a lousy gardener…oh wait, everyone knows that. 😉

9-I worked at a restaurant after college and hated it.

10-We didn’t have TV growing up, so I am now a bit addicted to watching television.

Dapper Gents

If you know me in real life, you know that I have super random, crazy thoughts ALL the time. Here’s one of the latest:

I love seeing the Mormon boys (I realize they are all men, but they’re all younger than me, so I guess I can call them boys…yikes, I’m old) walking around town. They look so cute in their white shirts and ties. And I thought, what if they wore bow ties instead? Wouldn’t that be the cutest thing? They would be the most dapper gentlemen ever!

Dude, I have so many posts just waiting to put up on the blog, but I have not had the time to sit down and write anything. Simon had surgery on his Achilles on Monday to have it lengthened to help him run. He’s been in a bit of pain and hasn’t walked on it yet, but he is as cheery as ever. I’m certainly thankful for that happy little boy. How’s your week going?

I Am A Fighter

My baby boy has had a cough for a week. We took him in to the doctor and the doctor says it is just a cold and he’ll be fine. Well, I think my body is fighting that same cold. Don’t you hate that when you can feel it in your chest and you know it’s coming, but you just DON’T HAVE TIME FOR THAT! I am fighting with everything I’ve got, as well as all the meds/herbs/remedies I can think of. My oldest finally succumbed to the cough as well. His reaction when we told him that he was too sick and had to stay home from school was, “Oh great…now I have to eat soup.” Ha! Where do they come up with these things?

George W. Bush Rocks My World

I know people have all kinds of bad things to say about George W. Bush, but I absolutely loved it. Now my preference for him has absolutely nothing to do with his politics and everything to do with the fact that he gives nicknames to everyone he knows. And I think that is awesome. I feel like you’re not truly my friend until I give you a nickname. Even my own children go by names that are completely different than the ones that are on their birth certificates. Nicknames are fun and personal and that is why George W. Bush rocks my world. The end.

The Tooth Fairy is Real!

My oldest son lost his first tooth last week. Now I don’t really care about Santa Clause or the Easter Bunny, but I want to make absolutely sure that my son believes in the Tooth Fairy. Thursday night he was so excited about the Tooth Fairy coming that he kept getting out of bed. My husband said loud enough for Liam to hear, “Did you hear that? I just heard fairy wings!” You better believe that he jumped into bed and was asleep in five minutes flat!

So the next day I picked Liam up from school as well as his five-year-old cousin. When he told her that the Tooth Fairy came to visit him last night, she bluntly announced to him that the “Tooth Fairy is just his parents, just like Santa and the Easter Bunny”. I argued with her that she thought that just because she hasn’t seen the Tooth Fairy yet. And Liam chimed in to defend me and said,

“Yeah, last night my dad HEARD her!”

(Yes!! He’s totally a believer!)
