Lessons Learned
  1. Never buy jeans while bloated. Forget the fact that your last pair of jeans has a hole in a rather revealing place. You can wear capri's in Idaho till the bloating goes down. You will freeze, but just for awhile. Then, buy jeans that actually fit right.
  2. The shower at my in-law's house sits at about 5' high. I am 5'6". I will hit my head on the darn thing every time I'm there.
  3. The shower at MY parents house has no water pressure. It will always feel like a glorified spit bath.
  4. We get sick every time we go to Idaho. Every stinkin time.
  5. Staples are easier to take out than they are to put in Baby Girl's head.
  6. Talking about Christmas a month before it's actually here is a bad idea when there are children involved. It guarantees a month of begging and asking "Is it Christmas today? NOW can I open my presents??"
  7. P L M O W - those 5 letters, in that order, spell every word in the English language. Just ask Baby Girl.
  8. If you have a big day, where you have a lot of errands to run and cookies to make and programs to create, someone in your home will get sick. Very sick. And you will have to run errands, make cookies and create programs anyway.
  9. PLMOW. Yeah. That about says it all.

Stupid jeans. Stupid, stupid jeans.

My In-Laws live in Idaho. Granted, it's where Napoleon Dynamite lives, but it's where my IN-LAWS live. Okay, my children don't get sick every time we go to Idaho. But I get sick every time we THINK about going to Idaho...

LOL, you are funny.

Jeans can be evil, always remember that.

Hope the kidlets feel better soon.

You don't know me, but I found a link to your blog from my sister-in-law, Stephanie Ivey's blog. I just have to ask where/how you got such a cute Christmas layout? It's really fun!

xpfnwz~That's how everything is spelled in our house! Too funny! I thought my child was the only smart one! Ü

Wow...amazing stuff! I'm the same height as you. I have never been to Idaho. I hate getting holes in revealing areas of my jeans. I buy replacement jeans at the thrift store...if they're a mistake, I only lose a few bucks!
