What I Learned On Labor Day:

Ahem. Bullets, Please.

  • If you sleep in til 9:30, it is possible that all your downstairs will be cleaned by the time you make your way, well, downstairs. But, this requires one bonus husband.
  • When the doorbell rings and you are still in your pajamas and you go to look out the peephole and you can distinctly see the fingerprint of the person on the other side, it is your dad and your mom. Stopping in on their very own anniversary. The family I grew up in is 42 years old today. Happy Birthday to my family!
  • The canine seems to be gaining weight. Finally.
  • Burger King does not put onions on its cheeseburgers. Middle daughter was pleased. But they do put on ketchup. Not pleased.
  • Voltron is the Defender of the Universe. (read: Votwon is the defendow of the univowse. {with puckered up lips}) Did you know? I didn't. Little son enlightened me while we were taking a stroll around the lake.
  • A picnic is almost pleasant in 100 degree weather at 40% humidity.
  • Model homes are open on Labor Day. And they are a great place to go after a sweaty picnic. They keep the a/c really low.
  • The Sports Authority employee who stuck with me for an 1 1/2 hours, ensuring that I find the best size 11 out there, was just about to get off work when we walked in. Muchas Gracias, Sports Authority Guy! I'm thinking my walk in the morning will go much mo' bettah.
  • There's a geocache somewhere near Sports Authority. We had too many thirsties in the car to stop and look. We shall return another day.
  • We may be coming down with Swine Flu in the next few days. My visiting teacher has it. She was here last week. The husband was just at their house- he is their home teacher- he took over a few movies for them to watch. Because, what else do you do when you have the Swine Flu? Watch a little movie, I think.
  • Barbie Thumbelina is pretty ok, if you're into all that eco-stuff. But it's not as good as Princess and the Pauper. (Can I get an amen, Nathan?)


I just clicked over to Nathan's blog to find his famous post on Barbie movies and it is no where to be found.

I vote for a re-post!

(End Tangent)

  • Family Home Evening on Labor Day. Have a lesson about babies, I believe.
  • Holidays are never long enough!

Will Vitamin C help fight off Swine Flu? Will Chicken soup help if you do get it? If so, stock up on both! Take care!

good things to learn on labor day....or any day. and why is it that you live as far away as we do yet you never seem to have an end to the visitors that drop by (myself included)?!

You must be the favorite daughter to have mom and dad visit you on their anniversay. I'll try to not let this ruin my day. ;)

I hope..for the sake of all involved that you don't get the swine flu! YUCK!

P.S. I second your vote for a repost!

On the subject of Barbie movies (which we view daily in my household of four daughters)I agree. Not real thrilled with any of the newer ones. Quit trying to be trendy and go back to telling cute fairy tales(um, Mattel). Oy, what is the world coming to when you can't even get a quality Barbie movie anymore?

And now I'm puzzled. Where did my post about Barbie go?

To be continued ...

Nathan said...

I have no idea why it didn't come up in a search, but I found it.

Click here and don't laugh at me too hard.
