7 Quick Takes

1. I have decided that there really is nothing better than puddle jumping with two pre-school boys on a warm March day. Well, maybe one thing is better, but that can't be legally done outside on a warm March day.

2. I have a new button on my right sidebar. There is a sweet mom from Oregon who has started a card business. Her cards are gorgeous, she took all the photos herself ( I am in total awe forever) and if you are fundraising for an adoption she will help you fund-raise for it. See her web-site for all the details. I don't get paid for this, I just love her cards and think you would too!

3. Thanks for all your answers on the whole cornbread issue. I am skipping the mix and now am on the hunt for a cast-iron skillet. Up till now, I've been a big teflon girl. Not that scrubbing scrambled eggs out of cast iron isn't a riot, but I've got better things to do with my time. Like scrubbing pee out of my grout. My life truly is GLAMOUR ALL THE TIME.  But I will do anything for some good cornbread so cast iron it is.  

Yes, I do understand that teflon is poisoning my children.  I also feed them non-organic veggies and vaccinate them.  I am the antithesis of crunchy. It's remarkable how OK with that I am. 

4. I'm going to be hanging out with sister soon. I think I will be gettting her help and buying some lip-stick and a mascara. This should be good for a whole series of posts as I've never once sucessfully applied mascara. I am going to give it another go. I may lose an eye, but at least I'll be a little less ghost-like.  Pirates are less scary than ghosts right?  Right?

5. My dad's birthday was this week. Happy Birthday Dad. We all love you very, very much.

6. I was checking the long-range forcast. When Way Cooler is in Dallas it is predicted to be 30C. It's supposed to be -25C and snowing here. I keep comforting myself with the fact that he's hanging out with PhDs.  It's not exactly going to be a thrill a minute.  Unless discussing the latest trends in homiletical research is your cup of tea, in which case, it's going to be ONE BIG PARTY.

7. For the past week I have had this song running through my head. Please watch the video so I can share the JOY with you.

You're welcome.

I clicked play on that video and was instantly swarmed with children who wanted to watch it over and over and giggled every time he said "Zazzamarandigo" or whatever that was.

I share your Veggietale pain. I'm currently listening to The Veggies Sing the 70's. We'll let you listen when you arrive!!

Personally, I prefer:

I like peanut butter pizzas topped with tons of anchovies and lots and lots of tater tots with a big purple slushie. Cheeseburgers and chocolate and lots of melted cheese, but hold the tomatoes and the cucumbers please!

I'm not touching the Veggie Tales video. I currently have the Wonder Pets theme song running through my head. I'm actually having to control the urge to shout "This calls for some celery!" every time I accomplish something at work.

Not that that happens too often.

No thank you to the Veggie tales moment. A former job in a former life ruined me for life for V.T. If God ever decides to bring an amazing man and children into my life, I will survive the V.T. with an ipod.

And as for activities more fun than puddle jumping in March and not being ok to do outside on a warm March day:
1. It is still too cold to think about that
2. Cabin fever must be getting to you

I REFUSE to watch that video. I need to stay sane this weekend. :-)

Great plug for Lady Di. :-)

I can't watch the video. I'm queen of having songs stuck in my head for weeks.

Hey too bad we didn't know about your search for the cast iron. Your cousin was given one while she was in Canada. She was worried that her luggage weight would force her to leave it here. Unfortunately for you, her suitcase weighed in at 49.8 lbs. Some people like to live close to the edge.

Have a wonderful wonderful trip to see your sister!!!!!!!
