I think that my brand new house is haunted.

The light above our bath tub tends to go on and off by itself. Its easy to say "stupid light" when your spouse is right next to you. But when the kids are asleep late at night and you are all by yourself its not so easy to dismiss. Then there are the mornings i wake up to the sound of someone shoveling my sidewalk right outside my bedroom window when..there is...actually no one...outside...shoveling. Every morning I drag the girls to the basement with me to play as I run on the treadmill. A couple a days ago I had finished running and was helping the girls pick up the toys and was wondering why Matt's footsteps were so loud across the floor upstairs. We have wood floors upstairs but this was unusually loud. So I run upstairs to ask what the stomping was about ..and there he is...still asleep. So last night I crawl in bed with happy thoughts of sleep and the bathroom light turns on. Ugh. I try not to think about it, but my mind goes there. I cant help it. I think I have watched too many episodes of MEDIUM. So I turn it off, lay down and focus on my breathing so i can slow my heart rate down. So, To any of you UNSEEN VISITORS, will you please focus your energy on turning OFF my lights so my power bill isnt outrageous? Thanks, I would appreciate it.

If you are going to eat at a Brazilian restaraunt and you enjoy the salad bar, try not to mistake seasoned Quail eggs for marinated mozerella balls like i did. Unless you enjoy weird food like that.

South Salt Lake presents...THE BOOB MAN

Thats right people, he wears fake boobs. Why, you may ask? WHO KNOWS. He ALSO wears a fake baby bump. You know, those things you can put on at a maternity store. Do they have a name? And apparently he eats a mixture of mayo, catsup and mustard out of a soda bottle that ghas been cut in half. Anyways, whatever floats your boat , right?

Great Quote by C.S.Lewis

" Lucifer does'nt care if we have crippling deep guilt or easy rationalization. He is as effective with questioning synical skepticism as he is with mind numbing blind obedient rigidity. He likes a complacent, lazy, apathetic person or an intolerant zealous finatic, as long as they are pushed to the extremes."

"There is a crowd of busy bodies, self-appointed masters of ceremonies whose life is devoted to destroying solitude where ever solitude still exists. And even where the planners fail and someone is left physically alone by himself, the wireless has seen to it that he will never be less alone than when he is alone. We live in a world starved for solitude, silence and privacy and therefore starved for meditation and deep true friendship. "

Can you remember the last time you were truly alone and experienced solitude, silence and meditation?

New Years Resolution- be a better mommy to this rascal.

Oh Boy. Leah, Leah, Leah. She is one tough cookie. And she is my test and i feel like I am failing..daily. She is 3 ..and complex, and emotional and full of life, giggles, laughter, toots and sometimes rage. She has the cutest little petite body and the loudest cry that makes you want to put earplugs in. She is a great cuddler and loves to kiss my cheeks and my arms. Yesterday she was putting the ends of her ladybug sunglasses in her ears and she told me she could hear something. She also tried to convince me that her Dora candy were vitamins so she HAD TO have one. She is obsessed with clipping her nails and will sit for hours doing so. She is obseesed with my mom and could easily move in with her. She is over her Tarzan obsession but now dreams of Chuck E Cheese. I often wonder what it will be like when she is a teenager and can more easily verbalize her frustrations,,WHAT will come out of her mouth? And I know that she will not forgive me so easily. Oh boy, i need to love that little one more and realiize that she will grow up way too fast.

Quote of the Day

Matt is sitting on the toilet and happens to glance over at me as I am applying foundation on my face and says "Ugh, doesnt it SUCK putting on ALL OF THAT makeup everyday?!"
First of all, i dont wear it EVERYDAY. Second of all, I am sorry that I sat on the beach way too much as a teenager without protecting my gorgeous face from those harmful rays. Third of all, YES it does suck. i wish i loved my freckles, lines and blemishes.
