Random thoughts

  • Ivy sings "Joy to the World" pagan-style. It cracks me up! When she sings, the lyrics go like this:
"Join to the World,
The Lord has come.
Let Earf decieve her King...

...and Heaven and manger sing,
and Heaven and manger sing,
And Hea-eaven and Hea-eaven
And manger sing!"

  • My birthday is this Saturday and I will be thirty-four.
  • Our house is overrun with Box elder beetles this year. They are like ladybugs in that they arrive with the weather changes and get into the house in large numbers when they are active. Unlike Ladybugs, they drive me crazy. They are completely missing the cute factor. Annette has a standing job for this last week. She gets a penny per bug that she catches and drops into the soap-water container reserved for this purpose. She has already made over two dollars. EW.
  • Steve is home every day now since January is so slow for window cleaning and he doesn't have to keep a man busy this year. I love it!
    He just came back from the dentist and the whole house errupted with happy shouts announcing, "Daddy's Home!!!" I love that, too.
  • Evan has a girlfriend. The boys don't say "girl" right so they chant, "Uncle Evan has a girurlfriend!..." over and over.
  • Evan backed out on babysitting because he had a snow day. Then he told me not to tell everyone that he has a girlfriend because they would all ask him about it. I told him I wouldn't tell anyone unless it snowed. heehee. I am so tricky. Also, Evan doesn't read my blog.
  • I have no idea what to make for lunch today. Also, I have not taken out the chicken for tonight's dinner.
  • I joined facebook by accident and I like it. I have even found a friend there that I knew when I was 12! (Heather: get an account there, PLEASE! It's free and easy and I'll get off your back about a blog...
  • That's all for now. I'll leave you with some things to ponder:

Why you don't ever see the headline "Psychic Wins Lottery"?

Why "abbreviated" is such a long word?

Why doctors call what they do "practice"?

Who tastes dog food when it has a "new & improved" flavor?

Why they sterilize the needle for lethal injections?

Why they don't make the Whole plane out of the material used for the indestructible black box ?

Why sheep don't shrink when it rains?

Why they call the airport "the terminal" if flying is so safe?

What do you call a fish with no eyes?

A fsh

There's one thing good about being poor - its inexpensive.

So, is the lovely lady with Evan's arm around her on your other site the girurlfriend?

Yes, but scroll down; she's on this site too. Kelsey.

Ever wonder why you drive on a parkway and park on a driveway?

Grandma Falk said...

I'm so glad you found Melissa. I had been thinking about her and her sister Tina. It was fun to see the pictures of the two of them after so long. How fun it would be to sit down and visit with them.

I joined Facebook too, but I don't know a thing about it yet. So Heather, we need to get with it!
