Fairly okayish!

Weird/not weird

Let's play a game, shall we? I'll tell you a little something that is happening in my life, and you tell me if it's weird or not. Okay? Okay!


Sophia's first grade class has been talking about the idea of temptation (those crazy Catholics, amIright?). Sophia is very taken with the concept, and was delighted to discover that I had bought popcorn at Target this afternoon! Because I was tempted! This is awesome!

Tonight, as we all sat on the couch to say bedtime prayers, she knotted up her little cupid mouth like it was drawstringed, balled up one fist, grabbed that wrist with the other hand, and looked at me with crazy eyes. "Oooooo," she whispered, "I have SUCH a temptation to punch Max!" As soon as prayers were done, she ran over to the punching bag the boys got for Christmas, and gave it a great pitter pat of a pummeling with her tiny little fists. Then she scaled the big metal frame it hangs on, to slap it mightily from above. It was, she explained, the only way to keep others safe from her powerful temptation to punch. 


Little angel, my foot.


Max's favorite snack currently is Doritos and sour cream. Not a sour cream dip, just a bowl of sour cream, scooped up with Doritos. Makes me gag and gain weight, just looking at him. He says it's delicious. I say it's disgusting, and yet I have not felt the same temptation to punch him.


I'm not speaking to my dog. Because she ate my lip balm. A whole entire pot of lip balm that my niece made me, and half of the plastic container. I tell her every time I give her a treat that I'm not speaking to her. She is...remorseful? Okay sure, she's remorseful.




Finally, how about me just jumping into blogging again, like there hasn't been a five month silence in this conversation and I haven't ignored some very lovely emails from wonderful people? Now THAT would be weird.



I don't know whether it's weird that you're blogging, but I love it!

Also Kira

I'm so glad your back. I don't know you but I live reading your words.


not weird :)


When Mir mentioned you the other day, I missed you all over again. Welcome Back! <3

Jan in Norman, OK

Just happy to have you back.


Yay, you're here and we're here and yes please say more soon! (happynewyear)


Weird is that I saw you had closed the comments on your previous posts, yet I kept checking every 3-4 weeks for a new entry anyway. Whatever is was, I am glad you are trying again.


Well, me pointing out that you've ignored emails from wonderful people...
and ME- THAT would be

Is it weird when life takes you on a crazy winding road and you are routed through bizarre detours & your GPS won't work & you FINALLY arrive at your destination FIVE months later
only to discover that your best friends don't care that you didn't write, didn't call OR reply to their emails but are just SO ECSTATIC to see you????
Nope, not weird at all. That's what best friends.... and cyber stalkerish readers are there for!

Oh WOW mama, that princess of yours is all grown up!
