I know, I know.  I promised an epic (of sorts) and I've only done one post and already I am interrupting.

It's just that Way Cooler is out of town and I need to check with him before I post the next one.
Because he is featured and I am trying not to put things out on the world wide webby that he wouldn't be OK with.

Before you think I am all sweet and sappy and stuff, it's actually because he is a lot bigger and stronger than me.  He could totally take me.  

I have had all kinds of random stuff running through my head anyway, and I feel the need to share it with you.

* Its been rather cold here over the last couple of days (which is such a shock for Alberta in January) and I have had all these colourful sayings about the weather running through my head.
The problem is, I cannot say them out loud in front of my children.

No, they are not THAT kind of colourful saying, they are as follows
"It's colder than my mother-in-law's heart."  I have a WONDERFUL mother-in-law and plan someday to BE a mother-in-law, so I'd like to skip this one.
"It's colder than a witch's tit."  I think it is fairly self-explanatory why I may not want to repeat that one in front of my pre-schoolers.
However, I'd like to come up with my own colourful saying.  Any suggestions?

* Way Cooler and I have just discovered the joy of texting on our cell phones.  If we'd had this when I was in high school I would have never gotten anything done.  Can you imagine how cool it would have been to able to text with your friends during the Charlottetown Referendum instead of paying attention in Math?  You can't eh?  You mustn't be a geek then.  

*Melanie is doing a six week series on cooking with beans over at Beanplate.  She's focusing on cheap and tasty ways to cook the musical fruit.  It's like 30 days of culinary joy for tightwads. 

* I've come to the startling conclusion that cleaning house while your children still live at home is much like shovelling in a blizzard.  Only less productive.

Stay tuned for more honeymoon mayhem on Wednesday.

Thank you for the reminder that the housecleaning is useless, perhaps I will take today off!! Lol!! ALso, I bet Way Cooler will LOVE the 30 days of bean recipes!!

Hugs, I miss you!!

Your sense of humor rocks!

Since I have a traveling husband, we're finally learning the joys of texting too. Even though my dad says it makes no sense to him, why wouldn't we just use our voices and talk? Well, can't do that while sitting in church or during a play date discreetly. Duh.

Yeah, I find that cleaning the house is somewhat counter-productive. I clean it up, then I turn around and VOILA. Chaos and mayhem. Sigh.

Charlottetown what? hmmm... took a moment to refresh my memory there. Thanks for that history moment.

Clean? I'm supposed to CLEAN?!?!! Maybe that's why the husband doesn't talk to me anymore. He's probably holding his breath to avoid dust over-exposure.

My husband and I email back and forth ALL DAY LONG. And yet he's very productive at work. HOW?!
