Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!!

My little brother showed us all this video tonight after dinner and we were seriously all rolling!  It's so hilarious!  Just listen closely to the audio.  SO FUNNY!  I hope you laugh as hard as I did.  But be careful!  A little bit of pee might come out!  ;)

Hurray for Jason!!

I have been getting anxious about selling this summer because living on commission terrifies me.  I'm no good at sticking to a budget anyway, so living on an income that isn't stable could be a total disaster.  Jason has been studying videos, manuals, and books like crazy when he can and attending APX meetings when he can, but with two kids, a wife, school, and a full time job, he's had plenty of excuses not to get out as often as he should.  He's gone out with Mark (my cousin, Paityn's husband/his manager) but he always feels uncomfortable and unprepared on his own and decides to shadow Mark and keep learning.

Anyway, I had a little panic attack yesterday chewed him out because I was worried that this might be a sign of what was too come this summer (just me stressing out and taking it out on him, as usual).  So I told him he'd better go out on his own this Saturday (today) and just get some gall-darn practice in so that I would feel better.

And to make a long story short, he went out and made his first sale within two hours today!!  I'm so proud of him!!  Needless to say, I do feel much better about going out and it's boosted his confidence as well.  So three cheers for my sweet husband!  And thanks for putting up with my nagging!  Keep it up!

Another Tag!

The Rules: Tell 10 interesting/weird things about you, when finished, tag 3 other people!

1. My parents used to sing a song to me and my little brother when I was probably too young to care, but still. It went like this: Devin, Devin sent from heaven. But we got McKenna at the 7/11. True story.

2. I pop everything all the time. My back, my neck, my toes, my ankles, my fingers at every knuckle, my thumbs, my's gross. But I LOVE IT!

3. I don't like to kiss my husband when he hasn't shaved. It pokes my face and I hate it.

4. I pick at my face like crazy. I developed this horrible habit from my mother. I actually enjoy popping pimples. However, unlike her (sorry to out you, Mom) I only pop my own.

5. I don't iron. Jason will tell you I don't know how, but that is false. I just am no good at it and it's so boring. So rather than making someone else do it for me, I just don't buy things that need to be ironed.

6. I need massages all the time. I make Jason give me massages every week. I love them. When I'm pregnant, I milk all the massages out of it I can.

7. I refuse to clean the toilet. I don't pee on the seat. Why should I have to clean it up?

8. I don't think I've ever gotten "enough" sleep. Even in high school, before children, I could sleep like nothing you've ever seen!

9. I only recently stopped biting my nails off. And I still do it every once in a while. But all growing up I would chew them down until they would bleed. I have no clue why.

10. I still seep with my baby blanket. Payson loves it so I put her to bed with it and then sneak in and steal it back after she's fallen asleep. I use it as a pillow and my neck hurts when I don't have it. Plus, I still like to rub my fingers on the little triangle fringe things along the edges.

I tag.....Aubree, Kassie, and Catherine.

Yea!  We are officially moved out!  I have been so sick of packing.  And today we finished off the last few random items left in the apartment and cleaned.  Well, really Jason cleaned because I was dealing with children and other moving out activities, but anyway.  We're out.  And that's the point.

For those who don't know, we've moved into my parents' house for the next month.  They were going to be out of town for the majority of the time so we're here to watch Madison and Maren and the dog and then we fly out to Baltimore on the 22nd of April.  Luckily, we don't have to take too much of our stuff, so packing will be minimal = stress will be minimal.  Or at least as minimal as flying across the country with two young children and a dog can be.

So happy Easter to you all!  I'm going to sleep off all the work!

What are you doing up at 1 AM, you ask?

You just endured 30 seconds of it. I spent 40 MINUTES listening to that!! He's not usually a snorer, but MAN! And nothing will stop him. I tried plugging his nose, rolling him over, all kinds of ridiculousness. But he's finally shut up so I'm going to get some sleep!! Wish me luck!

Ahhhh, my guilty pleasure returns! And he's British!!

Like so many, at the conclusion of every season I vow "never to watch this stupid show again!" And then I find myself anxiously awaiting it's return to prime time. The girls are always beautiful and dramatic and immature and petty and just down right pathetic. And the bachelor is always handsome and wealthy and charismatic and a man whore!! And he never chooses the girl he should. And they never end up staying together. The happily ever after is a total illusion. (With the exception of Trista and Ryan and their sweet baby Max who are so super cute!!) (Isn't it ridiculous that I know even that much about these strangers' lives?)

Anyway, I hate this show! I love this show! I love to hate this show! And I hate how much I love this show. I made sure to be home to watch the season premier last night. I planned to pack the kitchen so that I could see the television while I worked. I even rescheduled Lola's puppy training class so that I could be home for the anxiously awaited first rose ceremony!!

I was pleasantly, and unpleasantly, surprised! From the commercials I thought that this season's bachelor seemed to be a snooty Brit here for some good old American celebrity and a little hot tub action. I still have no doubt that this is true to some extent. However, he gained some of my respect when he denounced a drunken bachelorette for slipping her panties down his pants! Are you kidding me? HAVE SOME SELF RESPECT! I mean, I know that these women are already shredding their reputations by appearing on a ridiculous reality TV show and throwing themselves at complete stranger, but COME ON! Ultimately, as I'm sure some of you saw, she passed out drunk on a bathroom floor.

As for the rest of the vying vixens, I was not particularly impressed. I have no favorites. They are all stunningly beautiful. And there were some impressive talents! Playing the guitar and singing, playing the clarinet, some crazy dance moves, and my personal favorite, tearing an aluminum can with your teeth! Who wouldn't jump right on that?!

Anyway, I guess I'll just have to continue to watch the sobbing, rejected women, the first date make out sessions, the catty girl fights, and the suspenseful announcements of twists and turns by the beloved Chris Harrison until someone catches my eye.

So tell me, friends, what did you think?

Help Wanted

I'm sick of packing. Who wants to come finish the job for me?

Friday, March 14, 2008

Oh, wow!

Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! Some things just blow my mind! A friend just called and told me about this story and I had to share! Maybe some of you have read it already, or saw it on the news. I just thought this was crazy! It really is sad. What do you think?

Are YOU smarter than a 5th grader??

A friend sent me this link today. SO MUCH FUN!! Jason and I have been trying to learn the States for about an hour now. We didn't ace this in the beginning. Anyway, everyone take this quiz and then post your score in the comments so I can see if I'm the only one who can't remember anything from elementary school! I'll tell you my first score. (I took it over and over until I finally got 100%). Initially I got 130. You get three points for getting it on the first try. You lose a point for each guess (up to 3 guesses). If you don't get it in three tries, you move on. It made me feel dumb, but I LOVED it! So check it out!

So sad I was tagged...again.

Didn't I just mention that I felt so popular to be tagged? I contradict myself now. Oh well. So Kimber tagged me. Happy me! Except that it's the same tag I just did a little while ago. So rather than bore everyone with the identical post, just see below. I'm so lame. I know. But this is better than nothing, right?!
