Some Schtuff

1)  I am so excited that the NFL draft has come and gone. Because I have been forced to watch pre-draft coverage for literally months, followed by the actual draft, and then days of post-draft coverage.

I like football.

But I can't take anymore.
Can I get an Amen?

 2) Josh's birthday is in less than a week and I've got nothing for him.
He's hard to buy for.
The only thing he really likes is you-tube clips of people hurting themselves and starburst licorice that the company stopped producing years ago.

So he might not get a present.
But I will.
He's going to have to stop referring to me as a cougar now.

37 days is not that much older than you, darling. So shove it.

2) I've decided to stop worrying so much about the house. Because if worrying could sell my house, it would have sold already. And I'm fairly certain that I'm going to have to start coloring my hair soon.

It's just a house. It's just a house. It's just a house.

3) I've been contemplating whether or not my almost five-year-old girl finds incessant talking to be a compulsion she just cannot overcome, or if she's doing it on purpose to make my skin crawl.

Really Alex.
A moment or two of quiet a day will not cause the earth to stop spinning.

At least I don't think so.
I don't know for sure because we haven't had any such moments in the past 4 years and 11 months.

4) My son has been willingly ingesting a few choice fruits and vegetables lately. I've hesitated to blog about it lest it blow up in my face and he return to the sausage/bacon/hot dog diet that used to sustain him.

Today at lunch, for example, he ate a whole banana as well as a third of a green pepper.

And some sausage.

Baby steps people.

But I praise God that we have come so far from these days, when he was having invasive procedures and doctors were throwing around scary terms like cystic fibrosis, eosinophilic esophagitis, and cellulite.

Forget about that last one.
That's just my hangup, not Derek's.

5) Do you think that there are any healthy properties left in a yogurt cup who's product is florescent in color? And since when did Trix expand from breakfast cereal to yogurt?

6) The randomness of this post is getting to be too much. Even for me.
So I'm going to stop now.

The other day when we were talking on the phone, and I said it was time to say good bye, she kept saying, "But Grandma, I have more to say." I loved it. :)

I would gladly take your place and let her talk to me all day. I miss my guys so much. :(

OH, and you and Josh also, of course.

Alex and Daisy Mae would get along swimmingly.
Swimmingly, I tell ya.

Good luck on the birthday presents. I have no suggestions for you.
And don't make fun of my use of neonatal again.
It was late and I was too tired to come up with anything else.

RE: The draft: Amen, sister. Amen.

Now I know you don't pay attention to me.

We might have to break up.

It looks as if I entered the same comment twice.

PS did you ever find Taylor Maliblahblah on Facebook?

I don't get how someone so small can have so much to say (it's true here, also). I am a pretty quiet person (unless you ask me a question, then I talk and talk).
My husband's birthday is tomorrow and I have nothing for him. He said,"Good!" Having no money helps. :)
My youngest doesn't eat a single fruit or vegetable. Banana bread and Chick-Fil-A fries don't count, I'm afraid. I'm glad you are making progress!! It gives me hope.

I share your hangup with cellulite...and worrying.

HE sees the big picture, this is just one piece of the puzzle.

Abide, HE grows us through stuff like this...it just isn't any fun. :)
