"Happy 200th post to me! Happy 200th post to me! Happy 200th post dear me, Happy 200th post to me!"
Ah, shucks! Thanks! You all are so sweet.
Yes, it's true. This is the long awaited 200th post. I would have posted earlier, but our MESS has been all consuming. Throw a birthday for the Youngest Carrotstick into the MESS and there has been absolutely no coming up for air.
But, enough about my mess. Onto your questions, and my, but they were excellent questions.
Now, while I am waiting very impatiently for the carpet layer to get here, I will try to answer a few of them.
First off, my very favorite question from Cheree:
"My question to you is how do you look so good and young? It is hard to believe that you have a teenage daughter."
Cheree, I love you. If I give you a dollar everytime I see you, will you keep asking me that? My answer: Braces. Yes, I am a nerd and I currently have braces (for 3 more cross-my-fingers months). But the braces give the illusion of youth -- because you think only teen-agers wear braces. I'm afraid it even confused our old bishop -- he must of thought I relate well to teenagers because of them -- and hence my calling in the Young Women organization. Once the braces are off, I'm sure I'll look like the dinosaur my daughter thinks I am.
Kninsa asked "What's for dinner?"
I'll tell you what I tell PB&J when he asks me that: Whatever you want to make. Or, more realistically, whatever they serve at the restaurant you want to go to.
And finally, Mom The Runner asked "How was your weekend?"
Last weekend (the weekend in question) was excellent. We went to out of town to see our niece get baptized, so that was great.
And this weekend was pretty good, but exhausting. We went to the Youngest Carrotstick's piano recital (He played well, and his piano teacher performed too and was awesome.) We went out to dinner with friends -- always a good time. Saturday, the Oldest Carrotstick and I went to a swimsuit party so she could get a new swimming suit. It took a lot of restraint, but I decided to forgo the pleasure of trying on swimming suits myself. Then we went to a Stake Youth Service Project, went snowmobiling with cousins, came home, moved everything out of the front room, tore up and replaced baseboards, and went to bed very late indeed. And then there was Daylight Savings. I hate Daylight Savings. Sunday, we made it to church just in time. Were spiritually fed. Came home. Took a nap. Had a Young Womens meeting. And went to dinner at my mom and dad's.
There. Does that answer your question in more detail than you cared to know? Thanks for asking!
Stay tuned for more answers to your questions about food, toilets and child rearing!
