Dutch Much?

Q: How dutch are you?

A: So dutch, that when the handle broke from my curling iron (shown above), I wrapped brown thread around the broken handle instead of buying a new one. Every morning, even I cringe a little.

Married to Josh too long...

Filling out my March Madness bracket currently, and my favorite press conference of all was on Sports Center:

Rivaled only by:

The sad part is I crack up every time I see either.

SO, in honor of all things sports, let the bets begin. I am going with my Psycho T....

A new first

I sat down at the doctors office and started to read a magazine. Reader's Digest Humor in Uniform to be exact. I have always loved reading funny or pithe stories taken straight from life. Somehow my inner chuckles turned into me looking something like this:

Mouth wide open, perhaps a small purr of a snore. The nurse had to actually shake me to wake me.

Certainly a new low.

Lesson Learned?


The year was 1998; Josh was home visiting for Spring Break. I was in my junior year of college at GVSU, and taking a pretty tough political science course. An 8-page paper on voting systems and electoral behavior was due the next day. I, of course, had not even started it thinking I would work on the entire thing the night prior.

Josh suggested going to his Aunt and Uncle's beach house on Lake Michigan, and after an afternoon spent walking on the beach he proposed. Writing a paper was now the last thing on my mind. Giddy and excited, I wanted to call friends and celebrate. However, I was stuck by the computer typing away all night as Josh slept on the pool table adjacent to the computer.

Man, not a lot has changed in 10 years.

We had our tax appointment tonight and I pulled two all-nighters to get my books up to date. Blogger Nation, who is with me? Any procrastinators out there? What a huge relief to be finished. Apple juice, anyone?

Random thoughts...

since I have not blogged in a while.

  • 26 days seems like forever if you are awaiting vacation...not so much if you are trying to get ready for a new baby.
  • Overheard by Kayden last night, "It's my money, and I need it NOW!". Hmmm...he might watch too much TV.
  • He is a huge helper these days. I was blue taping the baby room, and he did this to his room. Something only a mother could be proud of.
  • Target is really fun. I am not a huge shopper, so I hardly ever go in there. The $1.06 popcorn/soda combo is a winner, though. I might shop there more often!
  • Speaking of:

we are getting there!

  • This time change is killer for me. My 2am bedtime has gradually turned into 3 or 4ish, so mornings right now stink.
  • 100,000 + baby names are mentioned in my new book, none of which we can agree on.
  • I am thanking God it is not flip flop season just yet. Even the feet are elephant-like these days.
  • I am officially cheating on Josh. My mom introduced us about two weeks ago. He is tall and white, a little squishier...his name is Frank, and I am in love. Sleep with him every night....wish I would have had this body pillow sooner.
  • Just interrupted from typing to be asked, "Mom, can I please be a Bare-naked boy?" Kayden officially hates clothes.
  • Finally, this one is really random. New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer paid $4,300 for one hour of indiscretion. Could we possibly be paying our governors too much if they can afford that?
