GS 911

My has been a while since I wrote last. I'd like to say it's because I've been so unbearably busy....that my life is SO phenomenally exciting that I couldn't possibly have the time to write...the truth is, I'm lazy. I think it's best that we get this really out into the open. That way you know what to expect from our relationship. I'm lazy AND my life is boring, so the combination of those two things makes for interesting blog keeping!

Anyway, I actually have been busy. Scott came to visit (contented sigh). It was fantastic and fun and comfortable and all those really good adjectives that invariably make events sound cheesy and lame. I decided that I like having him around...even if it means I have to make an actual dinner every night (for some odd reason he doesn't believe in eating cold cereal for dinner). I hadn't seen him for 5 months, so it was absolute bliss getting to wake up next to him every morning and he would meet me and walk me home from work. I put him on a plane yesterday morning and I kinda miss him.

What I don't miss is the pile of dirty dishes sitting in my sink. I HATE dishes!

I need to get started on Gavin's Halloween costume. He decided that he wanted to be a dalmation this year and with Halloween on Friday, I better get started or he'll be devastated (he's a little dramatic, if you don't already know).

I wanted to tell an official blog Congratulations to my dearest friend Annette and her awesome husband Mike. The possible vampire mutant baby you're carrying in your womb, Annette, is going to be one lucky kid--he's/she's going to have some kick-ass parents!

Ok. I've gotta go give the kid a bath...he smells like a puppy!

I thought that I had mono once, turns out I was just really bored.

So I learned last night that Prairie Dogs identify members of their family by "kissing" and if they don't recognize the other prairie dog's "kiss" they'll start fighting that promiscuous prairie dog until it runs away. I thought that was pretty interesting. It's amazing what you can learn from a children's book about animals that live in the dark...

Scott is here! Huzzah! After not seeing him for 5 months, it's nice to be able to be in the same room with him and kiss his face. Huzzah!

I'm not sure if I'm getting sick or if it's just a general feeling of malaise. I think what I need is a nap and a sugar cookie, not in any particular order.

I'd like to wish all my Canadian readers a very happy Canadian Thanksgiving. I'm not quite sure why you guys celebrate it so early, but don't be "sorey" about it....ha!

I'll take "Hodge Podge" for $300, Alex

Hello,'s been a while since I've written and my last post was rather wah-wah, so I thought that I better write a new one with a more upbeat story. This past weekend I had the opportunity to have one of the best experiences of my marginally short life...I was able to visit Notre Dame University, see a game in the stadium, tailgate hard core style, and take a tour of the locker room (sans boys, le sigh) and walk out of the tunnel and onto the playing field. As lame as it sounds, I teared up a few times, realizing that I was somewhere that held a lot of significance to my family. I got to touch the Play Like a Champion Today sign! I got to see where the family box used to be! I got to watch a Notre Dame game FROM Notre Dame Stadium! And I got to do it all with my dad! It was one of the coolest things I've ever done and there aren't enough words to describe how important it was to me.

I've also started compiling a list of things I NEVER want to happen to me:
1. Being carjacked. (Not fun and I'm happy to say I could live without it happening to me)
2. Getting tasered. (I don't think I really even need to elaborate)
3. Having never ending hiccups. (I watched this mystery diagnosis show and this woman had the hiccups for 6 months and they couldn't figure out what was wrong with her.)

I've also decided that I don't like kids. Let me qualify that. I absolutely love and adore MY kid. Other people's kids I could definitely do without. Gavin is currently playing indoor soccer (he played it last year and had a really wonderful time) and I dread having to go and spend an hour being poked and stared at and run into and hit with wayward balls (I know, there's a joke in there, but we're all being adults) courtesy of all the ill-behaved, ill-mannered, ill-watched children that don't belong to me. Geez, people, if your kids can't behave, stay at home, I just want to be able to watch my kid play some soccer in peace!

I've also started compiling a list of things that make me ever so slightly angry
1. John McCain and Sarah Palin
2. The economic "Bailout"
3. People who want to make same-sex marriage illegal. kinda sounds like state sanctioned discrimination to me. And correct me if I'm wrong, but wouldn't God/Heavenly Father want his children to be happy? I'm just sayin'....

I caught my foot on the top of a box this morning and tripped headlong into a cement ceiling support beam. I think I may be concussed.

I've also started compiling a list of things that are full of awesome
1. My kid
2. Scott and the fact that I get to see him in 6 days
3. Autumn in Cache Valley

Ok. I think I've covered everything. I'm going to take a few ibuprofen and get to bed.
