The ordinary

Wow the pressure is on to do a post. It can't be that by doing so I will have broken my record of blog silence or anything. But when life kind of gets busy, your creativity goes away and Heaven forbid I should just get on here and post something ordinary like,

* My Christmas tree that died already and we are wondering if it will be just as well to set a can of gasoline in our living room for the fire hazard that it is, or

* The 10 strands of lights that I put on the Christmas tree that probably shouldn't have all been hooked together as they will did blow out, or

* How Boo was sick the other day all throwing up and everything, but pulled through in record speed and has eaten me out of house and home since, or

* How I got snowed in last night when it was one of the only nights I had to get out and finish start my Christmas shopping, or

* When Lex gave me a note about me being the best mom and that I should not ever be a mom to other kids and I willingly agreed, or

* Why I am so thankful for my job even though it can really be stressful some days, or

* How Meg and Brand did the most awesome Christmas concert ever in school and they even sang, not one or two, but A LOT of songs about Jesus and they did not even get put in jail for it, or

* That Jord makes me laugh all the time but especially when she sings the wrong words in the hymn book at church and she nudges me ferociously to stop laughing and directing even more attention her way because it is so irreverent of me, or

* That I am more excited than EVER for Christmas because I am finally really "getting" it this year, or

* How I have plead with my dh to please shave his beard, because I have never been a beard lady, or

* How I got to go shopping with my mom last week and it was so fun. I loved it and I think for one time in my entire life, I out shopped her. She was begging ME to please be done, cause she was ready to go home, or

* That it is my dad's b-day again and if you want to read more about what an awesome dad/grandpa/friend/neighbor go here, or

if you want to know more, you can just call anytime...really.

So until I can get my brain more blog-directed, enjoy the ordinary.

Wow! And I thought I blogged a whirlwind the other day! You really took us on a whirlwind ride through your "ordinary" life! Fun times! :-)

Tamster said...

Oh, and even though we already said it on the phone to him, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DAD! :-)

you totally crack me up!! I think I have had a brain clog for so long, it can't be unclogged enough to blog- who knew you could blog about that? Love you girl, or should I say chick as the word verification says right below me...

yay! You're back. Even if it is just ordinary, thanks for the entertainment. Way to go, Jordan. I have never sung the wrong words in church.
Sorry about your tree and burned out lights. I'll know next year not to hang ten strands of lights.

You'll have to let me know how got to be so excited for Christmas this year, I am having a hard time getting into the Spirit. btw, I think it ROCKS that the school let the kids sing those songs. There is a flicker of hope still.

I am a little dizzy now, I guess I asked for it when I told you last night to just go and post. You are so very obedient, your momma should be so proud. How did you ever out shop her? It must not have been a nursery you went to.

Bonnie! I loved it!! You're amazing!! Sounds like there's never a dull moment at your happening house. hehehe,
So sorry about your crunchy, lightless tree. Does it at least still "smell" good??? I'm jealous that you got to go shopping with your cute Mom, AND that you outshopped her. I wish I could steal my Mom away for a minute to go shopping. Have a great week and keep those fun posts coming!!!

The more I think about it, this life of yours sounds very abnormal. I think you guys need help. Are you sure you are okay?

I love ya anyway.
