Wednesday: Did You Know?

1.  I took the kids swimming on Saturday night. I sat on the edge of the pool with some friends and watched the kids swim. The Blackfoot Pool is trying to come up with 200,000 dollars to make some renovations and I have mixed feelings about this. They sincerely need to renovate, but I wonder if the building is a lost cause. I'm not sure that it would be enough money to  really do what needs to be done. Let's just say that pieces of the ceiling  fall on you sometimes. You heard me right. My kids love it there, but it needs some SERIOUS work. 

 2. Dylan turns eight next month. He is so excited. He will be able to be baptized and he is really looking forward to it. He also can't wait to get the Gift of the Holy Ghost.

3. Wyatt is crazy. CRAZY. He is so busy I don't know what to do. He is all over the place and into EVERYTHING. I have a hard enough time keeping the messes to a minimum. Sheesh.

4. Dylan and Ryan are the same age and have the same teeth. Isn't this stage adorable. Oh my heavens those huge teeth in their little cute mouths crack me up. So Fun.

5. I love Grey and Yellow and this free printable from Persnickety Prints is adorable. You can find it at the link above. Tell Chari that I sent you!!!

6. I need to get to the gym today. NEED TO.

7. I almost have sugar out of my system. I'm feeling so much better. Why couldn't I have just said NO to the Christmas goodies?

8. I am not too into politics, but I am behind Mitt Romney at this point. I like Newt Gingrich, have a crush on Rick Perry (the same one I have on George W. Bush. It must be that Texas Blood and slow accent.) I think Ron Paul is smart but crazy, and John Huntsman comes off so arrogant to me. JUST MY OPINIONS.

9. I am about ready to rip my hand-me-down couches out of my living room. I can't stand them anymore. Scott has told me about 10,000 times to go and buy new ones, but I don't know what I want. I am TOO Indecisive. 

10. I love my husband. He loves me. We have 4 crazy kids and I feel really busy all of a sudden. Why do I feel so busy? Oh ya, because this is my busy month for work. I do the accounting for our businesses and I need to get out all the w-2's, finish my year end taxes, and get the books ready for the professional accountants.

Bonus: Downton Abbey

I may have watched the entire first season and the newest episode in two days. SO GOOD. OH my starts I am a sucker for stuff like this. Love it!

Have you seen this Show?
Did you like it?
Are you busy this time of year?

I like your #8...also my mom told me about Downtown Abby! Can I watch it online somewhere to catch up?

Jocelyn, you can watch the first season on Netflix or you can watch it for a short time on PBS. The second season just started.

How do you stay away from the sweet stuff? I really want to do it. I want to feel skinny and cute but that sugar keeps calling my name and I find it very hard to say no. UGH! My self control is just not there. _Diedre Gray

I feel busy too. I want to get a lot done. I guess we can blame that on the new year and the motivation that comes with it. I'm still on a roll since I know that will die down soon.

Go buy some new couches. You'll be glad you did.

I just started season 1 of D.A. 2 episodes in and I'm hooked. I set the DVR for this season just in case I liked it! I love finding new shows! PS we finished our basement about 3 years ago and don't have couches yet, thanks to my being so indecisive. Don't be like me!!!!

Downtown Abby was watched at our house! {Thank you 11 am church which allows me to stay up late watching it Saturday night!}

Ron Paul used to sound crazy to me as well until I read the book recommended by Ezra Taft Benson called None Dare Call It Conspiracy by Gary Allen. Now the likes of Mitt Romney sound crazy and are totally misleading the American people straight into socialism/communism. Seriously, that book got me thinking straight. Gotta read it, girl. It will change your life. It exposes the conspiracy of those who are trying to destroy our Constitution. Our freedom.
