On The Top Of The World

November 17, 2006

I’ve been singing that old Carpenter’s song all afternoon. I would deny that I’m old enough to know it, but I’ve already fessed up to my age. So yes. I was singing it word for word. The reason for this is because today has been a great day. First of all, it’s Friday. Who doesn’t…

A Little Culture

November 16, 2006

Bookwormom frequently posts poetry and I think that’s so classy. So in an effort to add a little dignity to my blog I’ve decided to post some poetry as well. This is an original work by yours truly. You can’t write a poem like this in a minute. It takes two at least. I think…

Grab That Book

November 14, 2006

Devonna started this little bit of fun. So here you go. 1. Grab the nearest book. 2. Open to page 123. 3. Find the fifth sentence. 4. Post the text of the next four sentences on your blog along with these instructions. 5. Don’t you dare dig around for that “cool” or “intellectual” book on…

Birthday, Shmirthday

November 12, 2006

My thirty-eleventh birthday is next week. It’s not a landmark birthday and nothing to get excited about. In fact, if I wasn’t so greedy as to want presents and a day of being spoiled, I’d just forget about it altogether. But I don’t think that’s an option anyway. After the last year-and-a-half we’ve gone through,…

Switching Directions

November 10, 2006

I’ve been reading Eragon by Christopher Paolini. The kid was a mere teenager when he wrote it and that in itself makes it worth reading. He sucks you in with his imagery and storytelling and I am enjoying the book. HOWEVER, it’s taking me forever to get through it and I don’t think it’s my…

Who are Dixie & Daisy?

November 7, 2006

You may have noticed the counter on my sidebar that says “Dixie and Daisy”. That nifty little business is counting down the days, hours, minutes and seconds until I have reconstruction on December 29th. That’s right, people. Goodbye Uniboob, hello Dixie and Daisy. No more worrying about my boob ending up around my waist when…

Revolve Tour

November 5, 2006

Wow! I don’t even know where to start. So many thoughts running through the very limited space in my head and I’m afraid I’ll leave something out. So I’m going to start at the beginning and hope I remember it all. Thirty-four teenage girls and seven women met at the church Friday afternoon, bringing sleeping…

Weekend Plans

November 3, 2006

As my sidebar says, I work with the youth group at our church. What that usually entails is showing up to church at 4:30 on Sunday afternoon, helping get things set up, and then hanging out with the junior high kids for an hour before their worship service begins at 7:00. This weekend’s a little…

Halloween Gone By

November 1, 2006

My kids were off doing their own thing last night and I don’t have any pictures of them. But here’s a fun little walk down memory lane: 1994: Katie’s a week old and Taylor is 2 1/2 1995: Peter Pan and Tinkerbell 1996: Luke Skywalker and Pincess Leia These are either from 1998 or 1999.…

Old Pictures

November 1, 2006

I scanned some old pictures of the kids today. Most of them were Halloween pictures that I’ll post later this afternoon. But I couldn’t resist these two. This first one was taken in October of 1996. It was funny that I came across it right before Kristie talked about raking leaves. Taylor was four and…
