First let me just say that the hubs and I have officially turned into our parents. It became official on Tuesday night when I put the kids to bed a little early so we could watch the presidential
The hubs and I have really been enjoying the McDonald's boycott. The kids? Not so much, but they have really been very good about it. When you have small children, you eat more McDonald's that anyone should, so it has been refreshing to us. The boys know that we have refrained from McD's because we are taking a stand against their unGodly policies. Then yesterday, the AFA ended the boycott because McD's finally agreed to the demands. My first thought was how great it is when Christians come together to take a stand, then my next was "What? It's only been a few months!!!" It took 2 years for Ford to cave in - apparently they really ARE Ford tough. I told the hubs this morning that the boycott is over and he has forbidden me to tell the boys. Thankfully, he says we are going to continue to
In these tough economic times when we have all lost thousands
My niece Anna has said she is going to change her last name to Zawesome (get it? Anna Zawesome). I think I will change mine to Sold or Stired or maybe Sychotic.....
Since the weather has become cooler, I am back in my usual fall/winter practice of drinking green tea (3 cups) and oolong tea (2 cups) everyday. The green tea in cranberry pomegranate flavor tastes like cider. The oolong tea doesn't taste too bad, but it does smell like hot manure in a field of freshly mown hay--they say it will help stop the aging process. At this point I am willing to try anything (well, anything except exercise). Maybe you should also buy stock in any company that makes anti-aging products - I tend to purchase those type things --- alot. Oh, and I dont think mown is really a word, but as you know that never stops me - some of my most effective words are ones I made up.
For the past few months, I have been working on teaching Kaden to read (and yes, I know he is only 4, but I like to challenge my children as much as possible - did I tell you he has been riding a bike without training wheels for quite some time???? ;-). Every time we work on 'b' words, he always mentions 'bolleyball'. I cannot convince him that it is volleyball not bolleyball. He keeps telling me that he watched 'beach bolleyball' on the Olympics and he KNOWS it is pronounced 'bolleyball'. All -rightey then.
Last night on our local news, one of the headlines was "Relief at the Pump". Relief???? Are you even kidding me? $1.50 for a gallon of gas? That's relief. $3.20? That is still robbery no matter how you look at it! And I never consider it a relief to be robbed whether it is legally or illegally.
I have been reading how much money has been spent by each candidate on their presidential campaigns. It occurred to me that if they had donated that money to the government, they could have bailed out the
Have I mentioned lately that I would rather wash my whole body in poop-scented soap EVERY DAY OF MY LIFE than watch 5 minutes of "The View"?
Have you noticed that Brooke Shields is on every commercial lately? She advertises for toothpaste, Volkswagen vans and all kinds of other stuff. I saw her on an ad in a magazine the other day. Beside her picture it said "Brooke Shields, Actress/Humanitarian". What does one have to do to be labeled a humanitarian? Wikipedia says that a humanitarian is "Humanitarianism is based on a view that all human beings deserve respect and dignity and should be treated as such". I believe all people deserve respect (well most all people). Maybe that makes me a semi-humanitarian. From this point forward, I would appreciate you addressing me as Beth, mother/semi-humanitarian. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
Seriously, I love Sarah Palin (like you didn't already know that), but If I hear the words 'maverick", 'ruffling feathers', Scranton, or 'energy-rich' again, I might start peeling my skin off inch by inch!
So, now I am off to the kitchen (where fires and other disasters happen frequently) to prepare some wonderful confections for the hubs to take to his ballgame tonight. Yep, I'm like Martha Stewart (only I burn things and I haven't been in jail).
