Monday Musings in disguise

First a video.  Just because...
It's going to be a bit busy here in the next few days, so I better muse a little bit before the house starts bulging with people.  I've been looking forward to this time for quite awhile and have every intention to enjoy myself to the fullest.  Unless my mostly-nice older brother decides to be less than mostly-nice.

It was a "three-dishwasher-run" kind of day yesterday.  I like to have the freezer filled with what we need so I can enjoy those that came to see us!   No school for the MYP due to rain snow.  It actually finally started for real around noon and then whooped it up.  Last night as I was going to sleep I felt snug and cozy and the winds howling outside made me think longingly of the SD storms I knew as a child.  The only difference was this was about 30 degrees warmer.

I saw this comic this morning.  It made me smile.
You see I love to sing.  In groups.  All alone.  Even at the occasional funeral with others.  But the MYP feel a bit like Jeremy at times.  And I'm sure I look like Jeremy's mother.  Funny how I used to relate to "Baby Blues" in the past.  Now I'm turning into Jeremy's mother.

I played a 'Guess Who' game with daughter #2 last night as I was folding a mountain of clothes.  I had to chuckle to myself with some of her questions or comments.  When she figured out the person she was trying to guess was in her 60's she said, 'I don't know what 60 looks like'.  Then one time she said, 'I just don't know who I don't know!',  and finally a question.  'Does she yell at her husband?'.  Um.  Well maybe...  but I sure hope not.

Remember our rear-ender last week?  That sounded funny after I typed it.  Anyway, we just heard from the insurance company of Mr. Miata and he wasn't actively covered at the time of the accident.  Lovely.

Well this is enough.  I hope you all enjoy your holiday days this next week.  Stay safe and warm.  Enjoy your time with friends and family.  To me, that is the best gift of all.


  1. Wow, I enjoyed that video. Simba's head was in the mouth of the fierce Lisi a time or two, but she wasn't worried. How did you teach them to get along so well?

  2. Yes! Company coming here too, even one from CO!! :) Want to bake and get the house ready, but I am wiped after scooping all that snow/ice!!

  3. BTW, that video was adorable!!!!!!

  4. Great video and lol at the comic--have a wonderful holiday time. I'm looking forward to ours, J girl is coming home on Monday and now since we are so much closer to these kids out here we'll have plenty of time together.
