Yep, you read that right, I'm done blogging. But because I want to use this blog as a scrapbook I'm just going to set it to private and not invite anyone to read it. I have a couple reasons for doing this but mostly I just feel over exposed. Maybe someday I'll feel like blogging again but for now I'm done.
My oldest child is terrified of heights, so I was really shocked when he told me he wanted to take a diving class instead of swimming class this year. But he has gotten up there and faced his fear, even if it's not graceful.
We went on a super quick trip to Utah over the Memorial day weekend. My cameras battery died before the end of our first day there so the pictures are completely limited but here's what I did get...
This is my family. Man, we're an attractive group of people!!
These are all the grand-babies on my side of the family. It was so much fun having them all together.
These are my boys at the "world-famous" Thanksgiving Point dinosaur museum. They got to go with Mema (my mom), and their uncle Eli.
P.S. they're swimming away from the shark in this picture.
So the most exciting event of the trip occurred on our last day there, just hours before we were supposed to arrive at the airport for our flight home. We went to a petting zoo, just to pass the time, and my youngest had an awful allergic reaction to the ponies!!! Something that should have been in the depths of his eye socket swelled out of his eye covering a good portion of his actual eyeball. It was really gross. Luckily it didn't affect his breathing and we were able to find an urgent care and get him properly treated before it was time to fly home.
We are now being told to have him tested for allergies (the back scratch stuff), and I'm looking for peoples input on this. Is it horrid? not so bad? worth it? let me know!
I was lamenting about the fact that my youngest was wearing the exact outfit that my oldest had worn to the hospital after my youngest was born and my oldest responded with, "I never could have known then how scratchy he'd grow up to be. I would have told you to name him Scratchy if I had known." (my youngest is a scratcher and my oldest has the wounds to prove it)
He was telling me about something that happened at school and the story started with, "a few weeks past, in this world...." --I was unaware that there was another world it could have happened in...
A couple days ago (while I was at school, so this story is second hand) there was a fly in my house. It was apparently driving all the inhabitants of said house crazy, and none of them were fast enough to swat it and kill it. And then my oldest hatched a brilliant plan while he was sitting on the toilet, (sorry, I should warn you not to read this if you're eating...) that went something like this.....
"I know!!! When I'm done pooping I wont flush the toilet, and then the fly will land on my poop and we can hurry and close the lid and flush the toilet!!!"
Luckily for all of us he forgot and accidently flushed the toilet when he was done.
I decided to do numbers instead of bullets, just to mix things up and keep you on your toes!
My backyard is within days of being finished. All that's left is putting the fence up and then filling the pool!!! I'll post pictures once it's done.
I was trying to say what I just said in #1 on my facebook page but accidentally spelled pool, "pull". I was humiliated. I promise I know the difference, and I wouldn't have made that mistake if it wasn't so early in the morning when I did it.
I'm studying for finals. It's not exciting except that it's FINALS, which means I'm almost done with this semester!
My little family will be flying to Utah for Memorial Day weekend. I'm trying to lose 5 pounds before then. Actually I'm trying to lose 10, but I'll settle for 5.
Did you know that there are like a bajillion different types of palm trees? I have 4 different kinds in my backyard alone.
I never know how to end these posts. It always feels so random and blunt.
But this time it's not for me, (can you believe it?). It's for my darling husband that I adore so much. He really doesn't have any symptoms except one... the man has been spending some dough!! The main reason I haven't sent him in for evaluation yet is that he's been spending the money on me!!!!!
The first large purchase was some more diamonds for my wedding ring. I recently got the idea that I wanted another anniversary band for the top side of my wedding ring. We went out to find one that matched my original wedding band but couldn't, so he bought me 2 new ones!!! p.s. They're bigger than my original wedding band!!
The next purchase was an even bigger surprise than the first. He showed up to my oldest sons soccer practice and said, "I found something online that I want to buy you". I was expecting something for the pool (which is another money swallowing monster that I am so excited about!), but I was completely wrong. It was an Escalade!!! It's an '08 luxury package Escalade (dvd player, navigation, seat COOLERS!) with less than 12,000 miles on it. It still smells new people!!! I love, love, love it!!!
My life feels completely charmed right now, and not just because of my new things but because my husband is obviously completely crazy about me.
