No Need to Go to the Gym Today....

Fairly confident that the "7 Very Active Minutes" recorded on my Fitbit were when I was holding down my 4 yr old during flu and strep tests today.

First Impressions

When I first looked at this my initial thought wasn't, "Why is that man there without

protective clothing?" rather it was, "Is that Andy Griffith?"

Weekend musings

  • I'd like to think that once upon a time I would never go out without brushing my hair. But I'm thinking this would be a lie. And oh yeah, it happened again Saturday.
  • I really hope the lady at Walmart is wearing her costume for Halloween. And I am assuming her "costume" this year is that of a prostitute. (sidenote: as it's Walmart, it's probably not a costume)
  • Miss Priss singing along to "Kiss the Girl" totally said "Piss the girl"-- I added the word "off". Even at 4 she has men figured out.  ;)
  • Josh Dobbs (QB for UT) is a funny looking spud
  • What am I going to do when Halloween is over and Miss Priss still insists on wearing her costume EVERYWHERE? It took me 20 minutes to convince her she couldn't wear it to school today. (sidenote: Today was hillbilly day at school-- her costume is a princess)-- we compromised by her wearing her princess necklace with her hillbilly attire.
