Thursday Comes Around Quick, Doesn't It?

Thirteen things that have kept me from freaking out and my head imploding in this lovely stressful week.

1. God.

2. Strawberry Twizzlers. Not the crappy cherry flavor. Strawberry. And they had better be soft.

3. This

4. And this.Oh. My. (Very sad that he died, but man, look at him.)

5. A lovely dream featuring Patrick Dempsey.

6. Our T-shirts are in from the printer to start our new business.

7. Maureen. The only nice human being in all of Colorado's complex tax system. Bless you.

8. Only 13 days until we go to CA to visit. Woot!

9. This boy.

10. This girl.

11. This lovely man.

12. The fact that my son's parent teacher conference involved the words "M is doing well in all areas. We do have one issue, though. He bumps into things on purpose" and his teacher reading me his career report - about how awesome it would be to be a pizza delivery man. Weird little guy. I love him.

13. The fact that my daughter is carrying aroung a stuffed snake she named Lenny...and a stuffed polar bear she named Mr. Polar-Bear-Guy. Lenny the snake is married to Mr. Polar-Bear-Guy and they have an octopus daughter named Lila.

Sorry it is boring, but my brain cells are working on an entry involving the sexual orientation of a certain farm animal. Stay tuned for that.

And sorry my pictures are all jacked up. I am an incompetent blogger, I know.

Seriously gorgeous family you have there Mel. And I can just see Simon's school report already. It will TOTALLY say, "Uh... He bumps into things on purpose... Is that normal for him?" To which I'll say, "Yeah. He's been doing that since he was 18 months old. Old habits die hard!"

Happy Thursday!
Mine are up.

I hear Blogger's been having trouble with pictures, so it may not be you. They do look fine to me, though. Great, in fact. Your daughter's stuffed animals cracked me up, as did your son's career aspirations and the ugly dog. Thanks for the laughs!
