~my thoughts about life~

  • Our internet is still not functioning.  It's driving me mad!  Occasionally, I'm able to connect to some signal called "Home."  I don't know whose it is or why it works sometimes.  Too bad it's not dependable!
  • While stock piling my shopping cart with cereal and toilet paper at Wal-Mart, I noticed a package of these on the shelf.  I attempted to shut my wide open mouth as I stared at a Mars Bar.  I haven't seen one of these since I was a little girl!
  • When you can't remember the date of your last run, you can hardly consider that you're training for a marathon. If I don't start running soon, I'm never going to be able to finish my 10K leg this September. I need to lay off the Mars Bars and get moving!
  • You know how those old people bend over, with their legs spread apart and their hiney sticking up in the air?  I just caught myself doing that to clean a spot up off the floor.  What does that say about me?  I'm lucky Hubby or one of the kids wasn't walking past...I surely would have earned a smack on the patootie.  I would have honked at myself had I passed by in my car.  Again, let's lay off the Mars Bars, honey!
  • Yesterday, I found The Lost Block!  Baby Girl has had a set of squishy, foamy blocks since she was a baby.  One of the purple blocks has been missing for probably close to a year.  (I know it was a purple one because I still line them up by color in the bag.  I know, I know.)  Anyway, I was vacuuming yesterday because we had ants all over our lower living room.  (Baby Girl left a bowl of Cinnamon Toast Crunch on the floor and the aunts had a family reunion inside the bowl to celebrate.)  I stuck the hose of the vacuum under a heavy bookshelf that never gets moved.  Whap!  Stuck to the end of the tube was The Lost Block.  You don't know how happy this makes me...it's been driving me crazy for the longest time.  Maybe I need to get out more often if finding a block gets me this excited!
  • Actually, I got out Saturday night and had a fabulous time!  Our church sponsored a young married social and cookout.  (I was pumped that I'm still considered young married!)  We played a newlywed game, which Hubby and I dominated!  The winning question was "What event made her realize that she had found the love of her life?"  I've even talked about that here on my blog!  It's when he winked at me across the church.  I fell head over heels right then and there.
  • If you are no longer able to recognize me in photos, it's because I'm about to put on 100 lbs. from the yummy, delicious sugar cookies I have been making.  I hate to toot my own horn, but they are da bomb!  I just can't leave them alone.  Time to start shopping for a muu-muu!

I must have one of those cookies this instant!! Yummy. The purple block would anger me as well but I thought it was a one kid thing, where you stop caring after you have more kids who loose even more stuff.

This whole post screamed "this is my life". ;) I was just at Walmart stocking up on cereal earlier today. And instead of toilet paper I got something resembling a muu-muu. Ha! After we got home, and I had washed my lounge around the house wear... I bent over and thought..."I look like a granny". I haven't made any sugar cookies yet, but have been dreaming about some all week. And I am also on the look out for some lost blocks. Ha! I have NEVER ran a anything, not to mention a 10k, so here is to you... YOU ROCK! But, I want this to be the year I get my body back. Great post. Ha!

Mars Bars are my husband's favorite candy bar... he buys them by the box because he can't find them very often!
