I've been avoiding the blog the last few days. On Sunday night, I tried to do a BIG blog post full of lots of pictures. But then, it took me 45 minutes to upload 5 pictures and then it was my bedtime and I said "well, forget it". (If you have any kind of trick as to how to upload photos onto blogger without wanting to shoot someone, please let me know). But I kinda don't want to blog until I've blogged about those pictures. I generally like to blog things in chronological order. But because I am at work right now, and there is no way I can upload all these pictures here, I guess I'll just have to find something else to write about.

That was quite an introduction, wasn't it?

Ladies and Gentlemen, (re-phrase) Ladies and the 2 Guys that read this blog.... I give you.... OBSERVATIONS.

Observation #1 - Folding laundry is not as much fun as not folding laundry.

Observation #2- When you tell a 3 year old little girl that THE REAL CINDERELLA will be coming to her birthday party, she won't believe you till she sees it. But then, when she sees it, OH MY WORD, She BELIEVES it!! (Pictures will be in a future post. See paragraph 1).

Observation #3- Swoosie Kurtz was on "Chuck" last night, and it was nice to see her. But then I got to thinking.... why in the world did her parents think naming her that was a good idea? And if it is indeed a stage name, WHY DIDN'T SOMEONE TELL HER THAT THAT IS JUST PLAIN SILLY?!?

Observation #4- There are people in the grocery store that stand there and spend WAY TOO LONG picking out produce. You're just cooking it, people. You don't have to marry it.

Observation #5- I have concluded that the one thing in the world that makes me gag everytime wtihout fail and makes me want to take a shower immediately is meat juice. You know what I'm talking about? When you're taking chicken out of a package or cooking steaks and all the "juice" is in the package that the meat was in? Ohhhhhhhh I hate it ever so much. If it happens to touch me, then I feel like I need to be quarantined.

Observation #6- I do a heck-of-a-lot of list formatted posts. I think that means that my creative juices don't flow most days.

Observation #7 - I'm sorry, but I'm not in love with anyone on this season of American Idol.

Observation #8- While I'm not drinking Diet Cokes everyday, I have now turned into a coffee drinker. I've always been a coffee fan, but I've never been one of those EVERY MORNING I HAVE TO HAVE MY COFFEE coffee people. And now I am one. Don't know which is worse... the Diet Coke or the coffee.... but I know that I have to have caffeine.

Observation #9- My house is clean right now and I really really enjoy that.

Observation #10- When we bought our house, the master bathroom wallpaper was on the "Get This Fixed" priority list. The master bathroom is spacious and pretty except for the GIANT LEAVES all over the walls. It is like walking into Narnia. As we have been waiting for the right time to get this done for the right price, I've slowly started to ignore the "Forest Bathroom" and try not to notice the foliage. But this morning when I turned on the light, it is as if the leaves were yelling at me. And you know what they said? "GOOD MORNING, LEAF LADY! DON'T YOU JUST LOVE YOUR LEAFY BATHROOM?". No, leaves, I do not. I am getting rid of you as soon as is humanly possible.


  1. #2: Can't wait to see the pics of her face!!

    #7: I TOTALLY agree! So disappointing!

    #8: Traitor. Oh well, more Diet Coke in the world for me, I guess.

  2. Coffee is fabulous and wonderful and straight from heaven. Kinda like morning manna. ;)
