Lay A Little More Sweet Talk On Me

Today I had a girls' day with Launa. As we were sitting together talking, Launa said to me, "Mom, nobody can steal you." I said, "That's right- " (I was going to say something along the lines of "I won't let them, because I have to be here to take care of you.") When Launa interrupts me with, "You're too heavy."

The Fun Part Of Parenting

Today I got to teach Launa how to headbang!  It's probably not that great an idea at her age...I'm probably setting her up for all kinds of chiropractic problems in the future, but it's totally worth it to hear her laughing hysterically! Besides, it's really funny to watch her do it.  She keeps trying to push her hair back.  I had to tell her to just "Let it fly!"


Eew! Why are there so many of those huge black spiders in my house? And why do they only come out when Jeremy's not home so I'm forced to deal with them? ::shudder::

What The Army Will Do To You



Note: This picture is a mirror image, the baret really goes the other way.

I put Launa in bed and when I went upstairs 2 hours later, she was passed out on her bed in a shirt and her "wobbly skirt." Not what what she was wearing at bedtime.

Okay, I know she put that outfit on after I went downstairs, it's still kind of funny.


I accidentally erased one or two songs off of my playlist, but I have no idea which ones. It bums me out a little because there's really no way of knowing for sure. My playlist is not as cool as it had been now, but it's still better than John's.

Blabbity Blabbity Blubb

I don't have anything to write about. I should be asleep, but I'm a little freaked out tonight for some reason. Jeremy's not here, but that's normal.  Some nights I just wish he were, that's all.

Woah, Look What I Just Found

I thought this article was interesting, because I know that many of the people that read my blog (myself included) are interested in future adoptions. (Some of you have already adopted, and I'm not saying there's anything shady about your adoptions, I just think that this is something to be aware of.)

Here are the two articles: and

Oh yeah - disclaimer number two: I don't believe that these articles are meant to put down the Mormon church. I think that this agency claimed an affiliation that it didn't have, and that many, many people were duped.

Hey John!

Quit hitting the "Boo!" button ya scuzz bucket!

What A Cool Teacher!

The weekend that I was sick, I turned in my paper 2 hours late, because I couldn't get my brain in gear. Anyway, my teacher gave me a 0 because there's a policy that a lot of teachers have that if you turn in a discussion board assignment late, they won't grade it. The idea is that it's like going to a party after everyone else has left. You don't have anything meaningful to contribute to the conversation. Anyway, I was bummed about the 0, but took it like a man. Today when I went to check my grade, I saw that she decided to grade it anyway! And, she gave me a perfect score besides the 3 points she took off for it being late! Cool.

I just watched the movie Changeling by myself tonight. It was a good movie, but I wouldn't recommend it to certain people (you know who you are). It was probably one of the saddest movies I have ever watched, made worse because it was a true story.


Jeremy grabbed Launa up for a quick kiss and a nuzzle. When he let her go she said, "Daddy! I told you, 'no more thorns!!'" Jeremy was confused by this statement, and asked her what she meant by that. She said that she didn't like him sticking her with his thorns. After a couple of seconds we realized she was talking about his whiskers.

Wanna Hear Something Weird?

The time is 11:21, and I have just turned in my assignment. It is one hour and 39 minutes early. I think I deserve a medal! ... And an ice cream cone! ...And a party! ...And a pony!

-No wait!

-I got it!

I deserve a good night's sleep!! Yay me!

How Do You Know You've Spent Too Much Time On Homework?

Last night I dreamed about preparing case analysis reports. All. Night. Long.

Better Now

Feeling much better today. Slept til I got up, ate cereal, did big fat nothing most of the morning, went looking at pets in Acworth, and tonight I'm going to sleep on my SIL's sleep number bed (can't wait to push all the buttons!) and watch cable since I don't have cable at home these days.

My kids have been monsters today, they won't go to sleep, now the stupid weather service is running all of the sirens and the kids are worried, and I can't get on Facebook, and I guess I should probably get to work on phase 2 of the group project, and my eyes hurt, and I just want everyone and everything to shut up and leave me alone!!!
