Bullety Goodness

Sorry guys, I'm bringing out the bullets today.  But everybody loves a little bullety goodness every now and then, don't they?

  • The marshmallow wreath lives!  There is no discernable meltage yet.  However, it will be 50 degrees tomorrow so it's gonna be a tough day for her.  Cross your fingers that she pulls through.

  • It's T-minus 9 days until I turn into an old lady.  In fact, I can barely type this sentence - the arthritis is making my bones cramp up.  But you know what?  Enough is enough.  I have decided that I am going to celebrate the hell out of this birthday.  And by doing so, maybe I will trick myself into believing that turning 35 is awesome.  Now I just have to convince my husband and kids to spend an entire day celebrating me and my awesomeness.  That shouldn't be hard, right?  *chirp chirp*

  • The other night Owen announced that he didn't want to go to bed and that he was MAD! and that I wasn't his best friend anymore.  So I told him that I was MAD! too and he wasn't my best friend anymore either.  And he said FINE!  So I said FINE!  And then I threw in another I MAD!  So he did too. And then he said DON'T TALK TO ME!  So I said YOU DON'T TALK TO ME, HMPH! And we went back and forth for a bit until he finally cracked up laughing.  And then he went to bed happy.  So far, I've always been able to break him.  You know, it's lucky my kids find me funny, otherwise we might be in for some serious therapy bills down the road.

  • Kim at Better Than We Could Pray For just had me in all smiles the other day after posting a video of her adorable baby girl hooting at the owls on my blog.  LOVE IT.  Hoot hoot, right back atcha, Sam!  :-)

  • I really feel like I should come up with one more bullet.  But the tank is empty, my friends, so it's off to bed for me.  Hope you all have a lovely Friday!

The marshmallow wreath made it? That's good news!

I'm 36...that one was tougher than 35 for some reason. Oh right...because Husband told me that I was "official on the wrong side of 30." Nice guy, huh?

OK,'ve got to stop it with the "35" talk. You are SO much older than I am (I won't turn the Big 3-5 until the END of February), but I am just living in my little la-la land. I walk quickly past mirrors, and I threw out my calculator so I didn't have to do the math on my age. :)

I do think it's so fun to hang out in the blogosphere and not know how old anyone is. And then I see a reference to a song or TV show that was popular when someone was in high school, and I realize I was listening to that song after we bought our second house or something. HA! Motherhood is just one of the great equalizers.

Hope you have a wonderful Birthday. I will be turning 36 and I have to say it is really bothering me. Of course it does not help with my husband picking on me saying that I am closer to 40 than 30.

I'm about three years younger than you, but my husband's two years younger than me. He's been MILKING being in his 20s while I'm in my thirties.

You know what, though? He's the one with grey hairs. Just saying.

I'm glad my kids think I'm funny, but for some reason so do all the kids in the 2-year-old class at their school. Their friend Mason has taken to saying, "Silly Mommy!" as soon as I walk in the room. This does not bode well for putting the fear of God in their future romantic partners.

Love the bullets and my gosh, 35 is not old. I'm 36 - yes, I feel old when I have to run around after The Boy but other than that, hopefully I'm just wiser? (one can always hope)
