Random Recent Things

  • We lost our power AGAIN. Seriously, I'm not really complaining, but I had NO idea we would lose power so often in Tigerville. Granted its not as much as when we lived in Uganda...that was daily. But I think we have lost is for some amount of time 4 times since we moved here at the end of March. Strange. I came back on and so did the internet and I am very happy!
  • Hail?? We arrived home (me and the kids) this evening and the down pour was torrential. Then it started hailing. I was trying to figure out the best way to get everyone out of the carseat, up the steps and into the house the easiest way possible. I dropped my phone.
  • Tax free weekend, 50% clearance at Belk and my parents babysat this morning!!
  • I said "Shoot a Monkey" the other day. (this is a strange expression, I know. But my mom always used it, and it stuck with me I guess) Luke said, "Where is the Bad MONKEY? I don't see it!!
  • The baby is moving A LOT! I love that strange feeling.
  • We had a great time at my nephew's (Elijah B) 3rd birthday party yesterday. I have tons of picks I'll post.
  • Today is my friend Stacy's birthday. Happy Birthday Stace! I miss you tons!
  • Tomorrow is Jody's birthday. He has to drive to Myrtle Beach and back, but when he get back, I'm hoping to have Blackberry Cobbler and Homemade icecream. He's the BEST...I would make him anything he wanted to eat, but he's not picky, so I picked! HA!
  • could I forget?? I WON something on the bloggy giveaways. A TUTU. Isn't that cool? My choice of size and color, so Hattie Ruth has a purple tutu on the way.
  • I really need a I better quit playing on the computer and get one while I have power!
  • Go HERE for a free Potty Training kit with stickers and other stuff.
  • Have you watched WipeOut on ABC? It is silly and pointless. The announcers are mean. But I was just laughing SO hard I was afraid I was going to wake up the kids!

O.K., WipeOut is THE DUMBEST show that's come out in awhile! Joshua and I have watched segments of it, but it just does not hold our attention. You're right, the announcers are mean...
