Here we go again!

Back to the grind...

I was informed this morning that bagels have crust on them... Shanna left little half moons on her plate. I asked her how she knew which side of the bagel was crust and which side was not... Then I said "BAGELS DON'T HAVE CRUST!!!"

I have decided to pile all 47 baskets of laundry which need to be folded on my bed. That means it's going to get done, or I'll have to find somewhere else to sleep tonight!

I think I will take a nap on Kaci's bed after lunch to try to recover from our fun weekend. (That sounds really bad after just saying how much laundry I was going to get done. I wonder if the laundry fairy exists?)

It was a good weekend though. We went to the park 3 times, the girls ran through the sprinklers and had a water fight, I cut the egg carton apart and let them finger paint the "caterpillars" (It's a little sad that it was Kaci's first time finger painting and she's 3!) We ate every meal outside on the patio and got some other projects done as well.

The weather has been so nice here. It won't be long before it is hot again. I planted my garden this weekend... we have been enjoying fresh lettuce, carrots and onions so far. Hopefully soon, we'll have spinach, broccoli, cucumbers, tomatoes, herbs, artichokes, beans, beets and strawberries too!

Here's some random knowledge to start your week with:

The King of Hearts is the only king WITHOUT A MOUSTACHE

American Airlines saved $40,000 in 1987 by eliminating one (1) olive from each salad served in first-class.

Venus is the only planet that rotates clockwise. (Since Venus is normally associated with women,what does this tell you!)

Apples, not caffeine, are more efficient at waking you up in the morning.

Most dust particles in your house are made from DEAD SKIN!

The first owner of the Marlboro Company died of lung cancer. So did the first 'Marlboro Man.'

Walt Disney was afraid of MICE!


The three most valuable BRAND names on earth: Marlboro, Coca Cola, and Budweiser in that order.

It is possible to lead a cow upstairs...but, not downstairs.

A duck's quack doesn't echo, and no one knows why.

Dentists have recommended that a toothbrush be kept at least six (6) feet away from a toilet to avoid airborne particles resulting from the flush.
(I keep my toothbrush in the living room now!)

And the best for last.....turtles can breathe through their butts. (I know some people like that, don't YOU?)
