Breast Stroke Day

Today my phone was out of service unbeknownst to me. When I rebooted at 4:09 the first of thirteen messages that came across was one from REM that said, "what we do when the power is out and we are bored" (side story a power plant in Apache Junction was on fire causing a 6 hour black out).

Later at the swim meet (delayed by an hour waiting for power to run the chlorine pumps) CEM won second place for individual breast stroke and first for team relay.

Amys Doppleganger

Last night at Bass Pro (yes I know, again) our waitress (a beautiful funny blonde named Danielle) came up to our table. After taking the drink order the concensus of 4 out of the 6 was that she looked and acted just like Amy.

As one of the holdouts, I skeptically looked as she reapproached the table. Yes indeed she was her doppleganger (except that I am always the tall one). So much do that I agreed to a photo with my much less attractive hair.

Nice to meet you Danielle, we love you Amy.

Just ask REM

Today I read this article in Parade. I laughed and the simplicity. If you really want a better Facebook pic you need to ask the pro.

One of these things is not like the other

Sometimes we look a like sometimes we don't.

Oddly yesterday everyone had a different look.

Not like the other......

My sippy cup and my moms shirt

I have been wanting to blog about my sippy cup for a while (this is my attempt at drinking more water-32 oz, I'm averaging 10 fill ups a day)

I am on day 22 and spent a lot of time emptying my bladder (which is where I am sitting drafting this blog now )

My mom gave me a great Bodysuit yesterday that she had struggled with the snaps on. The snaps really aren't that bad, but I have decided the move over technique works better with frequent bathroom trips.

And yes Megan, I am wearing Capris -again. There was an extreme heat warning in Phoenix and I was not interested in skirt sans nylons.

Happy Fathers Day Young Men

Last night I was looking for the perfect pic to post for Father's Day. I scoured through weddings, candids and oldies.

I opted to relook today. Then Megan sent me this gem.

3 generations of the coolest men I know. All with unique yet oddly identical personalities.

I am amazed at my dad and the knowledge,love, fairness and consistentcy he brings to us all.

Happy Day dedicated to you!

The jacket

Last year while at a particularly cold movie theatre (yes I have never been colder anywhere than indoors during an Arizona summer) Ash bought me a bright pink Reebok jacket (it was on sale ;) )

The jacket's home is in the car and has saved me from plenty a cold places.

I today was prepared for a 40 degree watching of Popper's Penguins. CEM and Raea however were not. It wasn't until the last ten minutes (insert teeth chattering here ) that they begged for me to remove and they to share (insert cool mom [figuratively] here).

Why you should carry a knife in your car

Keys, nail clippers, work ID badges create a messed up box

Then when you discover a second box inside it is just easier to give up and wait until you get home.

I love you!

What so me looks like

Tami gave me this shirt for my birthday because "it is so me".

5 months later (I totally forgot it was in my closet until she asked me last week if I had worn it) I tested if it was me.

Love it!

Yesterday Diane told me I could have her stone because "She never uses"

When Amy said I was SOL unless I had a friend (Tammy so graciously took care of her).

I was shocked and so HAPPY this am when Diane's stone was Still in the box

I am no longer sad and very blessed with friends

Calling all pampered chef owners

So sad, after 10 years cracked in half cooking fish last night

I know it has a warranty, have no idea what it is. Any other stone user who can help ?

Happy Belated Birthday Amy

I just woke up from a deep sleep wondering why noone had commented on Amys post

Arghh. I love You more than life - wish I could have been there for the big 40!
