Bless this mess

Always fun at 6:30am when your kid grabs the box of Frosted Mini-wheats, shakes them open and sprays mini-wheat shards all over the house. It was seriously like a little snow storm - she had pieces in her ears.

But how was YOUR morning??

The bitch is back

So I am sort of loving Very Cavallari. I watched it last season and I'm still all about Jay Cutler (who is getting more hilarious as he drifts further into retirement and no-man's land), but I don't even mind Kristin anymore. Also, her body is ridiculous.

Plus it makes me even more excited about the return of the Hills. (minus LC :( )

A place of YES

Well, it was bound to happen - Georgie has learned the word "no." And she says it like we say it to her - very gently, "no no no." Sometimes while shaking her head. It's cute but getting a bit crazy.
"Will you give mama a kiss?" "No no no"
"Do you want to eat your raspberries?" "No no no"
"Can I put you down so I can go to the bathroom?" "No no no"
You get the idea. Terrible twos start earlier and earlier. (#yay)

Every Easter, the choir at my church sings a resounding version of Handel's Messiah. Apparently they used to let "laypeople" up into the choir loft to sing along, and my wannabe soprano mother would go every year. Now the choir is so large they sit up front, so obviously no one else joins them. Except my mother. Granted, she didn't get out of her seat and go to the front. But she sang along, and sang her little heart out. Mind you, no one else was singing. I sort of looked down and shuffled a few feet away from her. But she had a grand old time and is already prepping for next year. Lord help us (literally).

I blame Delkus for this

Yesterday's threat of torrential rain and baseball-size hail caused a near panic - children left school early, we let people go home from work, grocery stores probably ran out of bread and milk (I kid, but only a little)...all for some thunder and rain around 2am. Oopsie.

Runaway Jury

Well, I didn't get picked, but I did get all the way to the "voir dire" portion. And I was on the front row, which apparently usually means you are getting picked. It was a cool process for sure (still glad I didn't get picked) - hearing from each attorney you could tell how they were going to argue the case (chiropractors are great! chiropractors are hacks! etc.), and it was all very Law and Order, Texas style.

This whole court is out of order!!

Well, no blog tomorrow because I am headed to jury duty. And praying I don't get picked. I feel like I have some options:

  • show up in my pajamas
  • develop some sort of "tic"
  • tell them my uncle is a judge (this is actually true)
  • yell quotes from A Few Good Men ("You can't handle the truth!")
Stay tuned...
