Dedicated to my bloggy buddies….

This is one of my all time favorite 80’s love songs

(Caution : Super Cheesy Video Ahead)
And I want you all to know,
on this special day of LOVE,
this is how I feel about all of you….
“Nothin’s gonna change my love for you!”

2 months ago I got the BEST pair of running shoes.

They were cute, they were comfortable, they were on sale

and I actually ran in them.

Unfortunately, these were the shoes I was wearing the night of the “poop” flood.

They were quickly (and sadly) tossed.

We put them on the list that we gave to the insurance adjuster,

and I started searching for a new pair.


Only Ugly, uncomfortable, and overpriced styles left.
I TOTALLY won’t run in these!
and you know how much I LOVE running!
Any suggestions?

“I have heard there are troubles of more than one kind.

Some come from ahead and some come from behind.

But I’ve bought a big bat.

I’m all ready you see.

Now my troubles are going to have troubles with me!”

This week WILL be better than last week……..
or else!

My Crystal Ball

Did you know that I have started to exhibit new Psychic abilities???
I have.

I’ve been getting better and better at predictions for about 14 years now.
Let me give you a couple of examples:

#1-When my adorable gaggle of children wanted to go out and play in the snow last week I made some predictions.
***I could see clearly, in my minds eye, that the 4 and 5 year old boys would both come in bawling because their appendages were too cold. I also knew that it would only be about 20 minutes of “fun”.***
Came true!
I even guessed that they would demand Hot Chocolate…..which they did!

#2-I can predict, by the condition of the kids rooms, the mood of their father when he comes home.
Pretty cool…right?

#3- and this is a goodie. I can predict for you, right now, EXACTLY what my kids teachers are going to say at Parent-Teacher conferences (4) tomorrow.
—having a vision—-
I feel it will be a proud….and….uhhhh Painful day.
I hear voices saying….”Excellent student….straight A’s”..and….”She’s a joy to have in class”..mixed with….”overly social….never shuts her mouth…”
—–exhausted sigh—-
NOTE to self: Send husband to Parent Teacher Conferences.
No need for you to go, you already know.
Prediction-prepare for angry husband!

My bologna has a first name, it’s J-e-l-l-o

Hi, I’m Lola….again and I’m a Jello-holic.

My addiction began at a very young age. Jello is a huge part of the Utah Mormon culture.

It is served at every party, meeting, Sunday dinner, and funeral luncheon.

It is served with vegetables,

and fruit.

They call it a Jello Salad….I’m pretty sure that you don’t want to put Ranch or Thousand Island on it though.

They make it look like pies and candy.

and sneak it into cake.

Now, a grown woman, I crave it’s jiggley goodness,

It’s fruity joy.

I think that Jello may be the perfect food.

I’ll bet that there is Jello in Heaven.

and Heaven looks a lot like this. San Francisco in Jello via ifindkarma flickr
