nothing to see here, folks

I have been on pins and needles since 5am, waiting for any news about Jane and Tarzan's Cheeta - and he joined us here on earth this morning before 9am, and holy moley, the pictures that i've been texted and then have been forward between all the family members are A-FREAKING-DORABLE.  I'm sure she'll blog them soon so I will wait and let her unveil all the goodness, but that baby has LEGS!!  Like, cute, full legs!  Mine always came out with little like frog legs and eventually filled in enough to look like a human.  Ugh, and the pictures of my big brother and his baby boy have turned me into a blubbering mess.  There is nothing more beautiful than that. 

But if you click on over to her blog, you'll find a post today about a cool dinner she cooked a few days ago.  Yes, in preparation for Cheeta being born, not only did she nest her house, but she pre-wrote entries to pop up every day so she won't miss a NaBloPoMo day.

Jane just won blogging, people.  When I told the husband that, he asked me when the last time I'd blogged from an actual computer and not on my phone while I'm laying in bed and falling asleep (if you look at the last entry, that gibberish at the end is actually something I typed while I was asleep.  I don't know when I hit publish, but I did!)  So I checked - and the last time I blogged responsibly and computer-ally, it was November 7th.  9 days ago.

But not today!  I'm on the laptop while the husband is off bishop-ing and the kids are watching an Old Testament cartoon.

Of course now... I have nothing to say....

Alright, when in doubt, spout out a few random opinions on things. 

Country music.  NO.  NO.

I hate terra cotta pottery.  It makes my skin crawl.

I used to throw a handful of shredded cheese on a George Foreman grill ('memba those??) and cook it until it was all crispy.  I called it a cheese waffle.  It was magical.

I'm afraid my kids are supposed to do athletic-y things, but I have no idea where to start, what to expect out of them or what to try.  I did basketball and soccer with the Dude and WonderGirl, and they were not things they wished to repeat.  But just because I'm a lazy bum doesn't mean they should be.

I used to LIVE on the phone.  Now, I talk to my mom, and on rare occasion, I answer when one of my besties calls, but that's about it.  I'm trying, but somehow I turned into an introvert.  Don't laugh, it's true.  Maybe we all go through intro/extro phases in our lives.  It's hard to carry on a conversation when you can't hear the other person.

I like ice in my water glass, NOT the roads.  I forgot that now that it's winter and the roads are always moist, I have to drive the speed limit.  I've been swerving all over the road since the snow hit Friday.  Thank heavens none of the other 8 people who live here were on the road.

Nursery is officially the best calling in the church.  For me.  Right now.  I'd actually totally love to go back to Primary music, but this works too.  Less prep, more snacking.  And one of the kids who hates everything sat on my lap for a snuggle today!  Winning!

I am still afraid of alligators under my bed.

Thing 3 is screaming his head off, so I'm going to go.  But see, a post before 10pm today!!  It's a miracle!!

One day, when the kids are at college or military school or something, you have to come back and elaborate on each one of the points you make here.
Testify! on the terra cotta pottery thing.
I really want to know about the alligator paranoia...
Thank you!!!

HEAR YE. I need to document the fact that I ran 3 miles and didn't feel like death.  So just to make sure it wasn't a fluke, I did...
