I am sooo very excited to be participating in Mamarazzi's Pinktastic Blogswap.  I missed out at Christmas time, but I heard it was lots of fun.  I even got to see IRL some of the gifts one recipient got.  So when I saw this one come up, I asked if I could sign up and play along!  And yippee here I am.  I can't wait to "meet" my swap partner.  And I am also excited to shop for her!

I Swear....

I swear to tell the whole truth, nothing but the truth, so help me God.  Yep, I said it.  I said the "G" word.  And I say it with reverence.  Because I believe in Him.

I didn't feel  good yesterday.  My throat is icky feeling.  So I may have forced asked my husband to go and by me a Frosty.  I counted it.  And I may have eaten every last delicious bite.

I had to go to the dentist yesterday.  I am getting a partial crown.  Right now I have a rubber overlay.  I hate going to the dentist by the way.  I would rather give birth.  Yeah, I said that.  My aunt does too.  I like my aunt! 

The kids played outside yesterday...I had the perfect opportunity to take pictures.  I may have taken a nap instead.

I might possibly make my daughters, more specifically the older one, put their brother to bed on a somewhat regular basis.  I do this for all of them.  It has nothing at all to do with me.  I am giving them a growing experience!

Just For Fun...

Just for fun, I followed along with another bloggy friend of mine, Nicole.  She did a vlog saying certain words and answering simple questions to show how she sounds and just what she calls that carbonated drink.  It's kind of amusing.  You can play if you want...or don't.  But I wish you would.  I would love to see you all!

Words to say:
Aunt, Route, Wash, Oil, Theater, Iron, Salmon, Caramel, Fire, Water, Sure, Data, Ruin, Crayon, Toilet, New Orleans, Pecan, Both, Again, Probably, Spitting image, Alabama, Lawyer, Coupon, Mayonnaise, Syrup, Pajamas, Caught

The Questions:
What is it called when you throw toilet paper on a house?What is the bug that when you touch it, it curls into a ball?What is the bubbly carbonated drink called?What do you call gym shoes?What do you say to address a group of people?What do you call the kind of spider that has an oval-shaped body and extremely long legs?What do you call your grandparents?What do you call the wheeled contraption in which you ca…

Spam Much?

Do you ever have one of those days when you just don't know what to blog about?  You are literally drawing a blank, and may even think, "Have I lost my blogger's 'Mojo'?"  I felt that way this morning.  Perhaps it is because the kids are back in school and I am once again forced to get up early.  And then, I was given a gift!  A gift of...spam???  Spam, the gift that keeps on giving!  And giving!  
I turned on my computer, as I normally do in the morning and as usual I checked my email.  And there it was, another comment for little old me!  Yay!  And then I opened it up.  It was spam!  You know the kind, "Hi, I'm new here!  I love your site." url url url some kind of body enhancer (enlarger) url url url.  I also get stuff in foreign languages.  Like Chinese lettering or something of that sort.  They could be telling me jump off a bridge for all I know!  It just frustrates me.  I delete it.  It comes back.  Spam is like flies.  You think you got t…

Status Quote--January

<a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="CAGirl"></a><br>
 I have been gathering up status updates since before Christmas.  I have loved the things people say.  I saw one today that said: What did we do before FB was invented?  Well we certainly didn't have The Status Quote!!  If you have never played, it's really easy.  Just collect all the funny, strange, and silly things your friends post.  No names or locations.  Just lots of fun.  Link up and play along.  The link will be up for a week.How do you lose an umbrella? Set it on a porch and let the wind...or a person take it. Weird part is, my bigger and better umbrella was next to it. Okay that one was me.  It was just odd.  I really think the wind took it.Made chocolate chip cookies and ginger snaps with daughter, listening to Christmas cl…

We Must Be Stupid

We must be stupid.  Or at least the talking heads news anchors seem to think we are.  Why else would they be reporting that gas prices are projected to reach $5 a gallon by 2012.  Why else would they tell us that things at the grocery store will be costing more, however the size will remain the same.  No it doesn't.  I am a bit OCD when it comes to my weekly shopping.  "Everyday Low Price"  has changed just a bit over the last year.  Milk for instance, was 2.29 a gallon.  And if you bought 2 of the same the second gallon was a lesser price.  Slowly over time it increased in price.  Right now it is $2.69 a gallon.  However, if you buy TEN you can get the discounted price.  It's not just milk.  It is everything.  
And it's not just the news anchors who must think we are completely daft.  It's the manufacturer's too.  It's just little things.  One less slice of meat in the lunch meat.  Instead of 15 ounces of tomato sauce it is 14.    The littl…
