1. it's funny that i would have a 'morning' blog. i'm a Night-Owl with a capital 'n'. LOL!
well, 'cept i do my posts at night and then publish them for the next day's reading at midnight.

2. i'm grateful to nurse wendy who is on the dvd, "elmo visits the doctor." she unknowingly taught me how to administer eye drops to my girls in a less dive-bomby-way. *sweet*

3. i make a mean french dip sandwich. Mmmm.

4. some people are so hard to read.

1. reese's peanut butter cups shaped like a valentine heart is waaaay cuter and more fun than the Easter egg shape. (so, there)

2. that one thing I won't miss about taking care of little kids is the ability to eat my dinner when it is READY!

3. i don't mind rainy days so much, but it makes the inside of my house too dark.

4. doing taxes stresses me out.

1. you must have to be in the 'kid crowd' to like the taste of campbell's double noodle soup. ick.

2. after being aware of a fellow church goer who is a grandma (& single) sitting behind me today, i need to reach out and hold on to my hubby more. i'd sure hate not being able to when one of us is 'gone' someday.

3. when my sister-in-law says she 'likes my brain' it makes me laugh & smile :) - two really good things.

4. having a clean and orderly kitchen to greet me in the morning makes me (& my brain) happy and relieved.

1. my husband is the best thing that ever happened to me :)

2. wallaby yogurt (my fave is raspberry) is the absolute yummiest yogurt on the planet.

4. doesn't know what possesses me about homemade valentine crafts... i love them!

1. do construction workers who build homes on cold, cold, days really do quality work?

2. was watching scooby doo as a child the start of me loving scary stories?

3. why do oreos taste so good, but be so full of crap?

4. is global warming really just the prophecy being fulfilled of the earth being burned at the Savior Jesus Christ's second coming?

1. my scion xB may just fit in the grocery cart return in the smith's parking lot (don't worry, i didn't try it)

2. being almost 40 years old is the time when health can start to decline.

3. my new ikea kitchen knife i love, yet it kinda freaks me out when i use it to cut fresh spinach leaves. what a clean slice!

4. i cut up a lot of salad materials.

1. couponing, if done right, can save a ton of money.

2. dried fried fruit like cranberries or raisins really are tasty in and make a good texture addition to a salad.

3. scrunching up your hair when still damp in scrunchy - then sleeping like that - can give some great wave to your 'do by morning.

4. trying to make a point to enjoy my small children while shopping for groceries is important - they won't be able to fit in the kids' grocery cart forever :*( - and kinda don't already.
note: last grocery trip was a bust & found myself with our 3 year old waiting in the car... better next time? hopefully?)

1. that smooth jazz music soothes the ears and the soul.

2. that PBSKids shows have been an excellent tool in teaching my children.

3. that it was too bad that Marlin, Nemo's Dad, (in Pixar's Finding Nemo) couldn't have just ended up in the Dentist's aquarium with Nemo and be safe from his ocean fears forever.

4. that I'm a lot like Marlin.

1. buying shockingly green bananas may not be so bad after all. They seemed to ripen well just lying there in my bowl - which gives the chance for the eater to eat one at the peak of perfectness. And they seem to have fewer bruises. Although, the last two in my bowl have a couple spots. I'm thinking they occurred while trying to get a banana(s) off the bunch. We shall see when we go to peel and eat.

2. graham crackers taking a dunk in milk is a yummy treat. Just be sure to leave some milk (or pour enough to begin with) in the glass to wash it all down when the count of crackers becomes zero.

3. laundry theory of yesterday was not put to the test. Me Today = Headache, yucky, yucky headache. thanks, huzbind, for coming home early *smooch*

4. buying organically goes way beyond the heftier price tag one sees. But if one buys organic, then one knows that already.

1. sitting with my toddler on the couch with Sesame Street playing on the TV while sniffing her head (the 'smellin head' thing again, sorry, it just smells so good :) can be very calming - if she isn't too wiggily! and will stay there!

2. that if I do 3 loads of laundry in a day, that it might be a steady maintaining pace. This, however, may have to be tested/thought-out more thoroughly.

3. that if I use chocolate milk as my sweet treat after dinner, it won't be as bad on the waistline.

4. that I'm so proud of my 1st grader for doing exceptional in school. Way to go, my girl!

1. kroger brand yogurt & berries mini rice cakes are a snackers dream come true - no fat, low sodium, low sugar and they taste good! (and you get 7 per serving)

2. that it's just easier to brush the crumbs off of the counter/table onto the floor. (ya gotta sweep anyway!)

3. having your nose (boogers) return to 'normal' after having a sinus infection may just be counted as *bliss*.

4. that after having the mounting hardware for my roman shades catch my eye, there's no way I could live without my huzbind! *smooch*

Tuesday, February 2, 2010

1. that sprinkles of dried parsley (or any kind of green flakes) make food look so elegant and makes me want to eat it.

2. that hearing a loud noise while showering and having both eyes closed because they are being simultaneously scrubbed with soap bubbles is not a very pleasant experience. (stings! x 2)

3. that Parenting is thee hardest job in the Universe (rough night)

4. that there is a very Loving and Merciful Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ, his Son, up above.

1. shirts should go back to having tags. a person can't get dressed in the dark. But more importantly, who knows what's in the ink nowadays.

2. should the United States just be split directly (or nearly directly) in half? maybe it's all too big for just one man.

3. that the outside of an IKEA is painted yellow and blue because the Swedish flag is yellow and blue. (i guess i was slow to catch on to that one)

4. smelling your own toddler's head is a very sweet, intoxicating scent a Mom never tires of.
