-> I was folding laundry last night when little o toddled up with a book, climbed on the couch and started to "read". He uttered his first full sentence, "We go on our motorcycle." He does this to kill me. I will now proceed to spend the next 14 years convincing him that motorcycles are too dangerous for adorable blond haired boys. Only criminals and men who don't want to admit they're fifty ride motorcycles. That's my story.
-> A woman at the volley ball courts this weekend made this comment (in not the nicest tone, but I choose to ignore that part): "Look at that lady. Big blanket spread out with snacks and toys, two clean, well behaved little boys. They keep their hats on, they don't scream. I bet she even put sunblock on them. Ha. I couldn't get my kids to act like that in a million years." Her friend, "Maybe it's the blanket." Or maybe it's magic. I'm just happy that the one time I had my act together someone noticed.
-> It's official, "Don't say Gay" in Tennessee. And Ohio might be shortly to follow. My SIL pointed out that there are billboards on our highways indicating that we should "Pray away the Gay". I'm not sure what people are afraid of. I'd like to ask the Senator in Tennessee if he thinks the gays will take over and force everyone to wear pink and speak with a lisp. Or watch cooking shows? Are they concerned that if we had a gay president that the first man would do a better job that most first ladies of decorating the white house? Sometimes I like to imagine what it would be like if the gays all got really pissed and finally exerted some force in their own defense. He, he, he. Go ahead. Imagine it for a giggle.
-> I finally found a mass market bread out our supermarket with no corn syrup in it!!! I wanted to hug the manager when I saw the display. Ok, it still isn't the best out there (there's a lot of other krappe in it) but it tastes pretty good and it's better than most. Can I get a woot woot?
-> I am convinced that I have reached full brain capacity. Some days, I hit around and realize that my brain is "fuzzy". Nothing I read is sticking, if someone tells me something, it doesn't stick. I'm ok the next day, but for that day, I'm pretty much useless. I'm convinced it's because my brain is deleting files while I sleep. It finds the ones that haven't been accessed in a while (the name of the lady with the down syndrome daughter at church who always smiles so nicely at us, or the bill from the dentist that's under a pile of new mail but never got paid) and blip- gets rid of them. Then it has room for more useless. I notice it never gets rid of things like random movie quotes or the fact that my dentist has sailed the seven seas (which is cool, but I really never use that info). I'm beginning to wonder if it's working against me.
-> Have you noticed that the weather has been rather extreme lately? At least he got that part of his prediction right. Now if only the Resurrection had occurred...
Ok. Go back to what you were doing. Nothing more to see here.
