Sometimes I am too lazy to write a blog post, so I get on Facebook.  The nice thing about Facebook (versus the blog) is I generally get more feedback, and sometimes there's even a discussion.  This way I feel like maybe I had some adult interaction over the course of the day.  Kind of, but not really.

I'm just going to copy and paste some of the more memorable status updates so the memories are saved.

That moment when you get out of the shower and you see a big hairy spider racing towards your stack of clean clothes, that's when you realize you are not even remotely prepared to save yourself.   I had very little at my disposal, but the shampoo bottle seemed to work well bludgeoning the spider to death.

A new first for us- Maddie put something in her ear, and I can't get it out. So, hi ho, hi ho, it's off to the doctor's office we go.....

When I told the girls they could take cookies in their lunch to school, I did not mean they could take the rest of the cookies. (There were at least a dozen left.) Imagine my surprise come lunch time when there isn't a single cookie left for me or the twins.

What is it about the middle of the night that inspires the stomach flu?

I love it when dessert arrives at your front door, especially when it's warm cookies.

Having just finished the Merlin series, I can now say- BBC, I hate you. You just have to kill off everyone, don't you?

Annie gave us a bit of a scare last night. When it was time to check on the kids before we turned in for the night, we could not find Annie. After searching the whole house, Ryan found her fast asleep with her blanket in Elizabeth's closet. The closet doors had been closed.

I have a very excited girl counting the hours until she turns 8. Happy almost-birthday Elizabeth.

The missionaries pronounced our last name correctly. A miracle! 

This morning I tried killing a spider with my tennis shoes. The uneven tread was proving a challenge, and I ended up shouting, "Die Spider. Die! DIE! DIE!!!!" The kids all burst out laughing. I guess I'm funny when I'm homicidal.
