Why I paid $8 extra for gas...

I pulled into the Costco gas station, relieved to have an excuse to stand outside the car in SILENCE and leave my excessively difficult 4 year old whining at me from the backseat. The lead up to that is a whole other post :) Anyway, so I am standing there minding my own business and thinking about what I need to get done when the Blessed Time of Napping rolls around and I must have been staring through the lady at the pump next door. She turns to me and says "Yes, we're talking about you. I was just telling my friend that I LOVE the color of your jacket!". She says this in a rush and I am still trying to drag myself back to earth enough to register that she is talking to me. I say "Thanks, that's great to hear when you just feel fat" referring to my half pregnancy chunkiness. She proceeds to tell me that she can't even tell I am pregnant which I guess is great except then I wonder if I just look like I've been eating too many desserts :) All in all it was a nice perk in the middle of a day where Isaac (the aforementioned 3.75 year old told me "Yes, I do want to push you very far today"). I knew that screaming pink jacket was a favorite for a reason ;) Of course, by the time I started to pay attention to the gas pump I had paid $8 more than I planned...oops.

6th Photo game

Melanie over at Whimsical Creations and Lynn at Beading Heart Art both posted about the 6th picture you ever put on your blog. I thought it was a fun idea so I started back through my archives. Wow. Haven't done that in forever. I started this blog August 22, 2005 as a way for friends and family to keep up with my husband and I when we moved to Grenada for Paul to go to medical school. We've come a long way, praise the Lord! Here is my 6th photo from back in the island days :)

I bet this doesn't happen at your house!

I thought I heard a knock on the door Sunday afternoon and answered thinking it was the neighbor kid wanting to borrow something or one of those magazine subscription salesmen that talks like they are on meth. Nope. Instead it was Granda with his boys from Station 2 stopping by after they went to fuel up the truck. How's that for community PR, huh?

New talent!

I made my first Etsy treasury here today on Treasury East (Beta). It's called Pounce! because it made it predominately from artists who are new to Etsy or have yet to sell one of their beautiful creations. Check it out!

So I was looking at my Etsy shop thinking "hmm, I need to post some new items. I didn't realize there are only 16 in the shop". DUH! Then I looked at the expired/inactive section and VOILA, what do you know? Needless to say I will be posting new items in the near future as soon as I compile the photos but in the meantime go check to see if there's anything you might have forgotten about :)

Unlikely things we say...

"Jason! Come get your chainsaw out of the bathroom and go put it away in the toy basket in the living room, please."

Be a pal...leave your funny sayings in the comments so I don't think I am crazy ;) And have a great weekend!

Spot the nap fighter.

I am told by my parents (that's my Dad here) that I was a child that fought sleep on the premise that if I gave into it I would miss something. Safe to say we are pretty sure I passed that on to Jason, seen here trying his dead level best to stay awake and failing :)
