quote of the week...

“When you’re safe at home you wish you were having an adventure; when you’re having an adventure you wish you were safe at home.”

--Thornton Wilder*

*I got this from Andrea Merriman's
blog. She has an amazing story, and if you ever find yourself with some time, you should read about her experiences.

I got something pretty...

How fun is this? I have been a fan of these stamped disc necklaces for awhile now, but never could decide what kind I wanted. Kids names, The Hubby and I's names, a scripture or quote...I never could set my heart on one.

Then I saw the above over at The Rusted Chain and fell in love.

I have had several people ask me to tag my quote posts so they are easier to find. I finally got around when you click on the "quotes" tag, it should bring up every quote of the week and a few posts that have quotes in them.

Thanks for liking them!

love, logic, and a little 70s rock...

Teenager: So...I want to go out with my friends tonight.
Me: Uh huh. That's nice.
Teenager: Sooo...can I?
Me: Here's the thing: if you are going to rock and roll all night, you gotta party every day. And, to me, 'partying every day' does not mean 'sleep on the couch for 6 hours'. Do you see where I am going with this?
Teenager: I...think so. You want me to do more around the house during the day if I am going to stay out late with my friends?
Me: See those brains? You get those from me.
Teenager: Okay. And Mom? That KISS reference? Was. Totally. Awesome.

solid evidence that facebook is not a tool of the Devil...

I had a really, really bad day on Tuesday. I'm not going to elaborate, because it'll just bring back painful memories and I am trying very hard to get out of the bitter barn and play in the hay.

Anyway, i updated my status on facebook to reflect said day of suckage, and guess what happened?


A very sweet, very funny, and entirely too busy to be worried about me woman came to my house and brought me Moose Tracks. EXTREME Moose Tracks, thank you very much.

And I do. Thank her. Very, very much.

quote of the week...

"The easiest way to destroy people is to give them exactly what they want. You might not realize it at the time, but the struggle to achieve something is, in many ways, much more satisfying than actually getting it."

--Patrick Swayze
