old Mcdonald had a donkey

We went and walked around Wheeler Farm the other day. If you happen to go there here are just a few tips, well really just one important one, don't feed the geese! Luckily I did not take bread for the ducks and geese but one poor mother did. She and her small children were chased around by 30 loud, scary geese. She took refuge on top of a picnic table, I got my kids away from there so I don't know if she ever got away. I hope she is still not stuck on that table. Geese are scary, and they are big, and I hear they can be mean so I am not taking any chances. We used to feed the ducks a lot at the canal is blessed Mesa but we have yet to find a good duck spot here. You can see in some of the pictures the geese all going one direction, GET THE BREAD! they are all saying.
Steve and I had to talk in church on Sunday, Steve brought up it is the second talk for this pregnancy, I don't think that is fair. But I was thinking if I were still in Mesa it would have been our primary program that I would have had to write so I think that would have been a far more stressful situation. My thoughts were with you Karen!
Just starting yesterday if I ask Ella a question and her answer is not yes she says "no way". Where did that come frome? She is stinkin funny. So today if someone asks you something and your answer is not yes please say "no way", see what reaction you get. It's better than just saying no.

Have you ever been infused? Well, I am infused all the time. Actually I am confused but Andrew says infused. Sometimes I think it is actually a more appropriate word for the situation. I am sitting here wondering when Darth Vedar (I have no idea how to spell that) entered the room, but I just realized it is my printer. Steve left this morning for San Fran and he will be gone a whole week. I pray for sanity! please!

Holy comments Batman

This has been a lot to take in... comments.... wow. Hey welcome Ryan and Karen! Ryan, it has been a long time. I checked out your webpage and I am interested in the fact that your favorite food is cream cheese.

Yesterday Andrew came home from preschool with a couple of jokes, I thought I would share.

What did the one mummy say to the other mummy? GET A LIFE! he he
How many people are dead in a cemetery? ALL OF THEM!

Andrew is still struggling with his choice for Halloween. The Devil is out (says his mother), but the Grim Reaper is still on the table. It is important to Andrew that he is something scary and that he will carry some sort of weapon. I told him that we must make a decision soon or we will be out of luck. Last yeat I was very last minute with Halloween. The store had no candy and I had to talk the kids into being ghosts. I actually had an old white sheet, they looked great.

Lastly, and this has been something that has been bugging me since we moved here. There is a road that I drive on almost everyday, it is on the way to Target. It is the dumbest road I have ever encountered. On purpose it is the bumpiest dang thing you will ever drive on. Any part of your body that might jiggle will jiggle while driving on this road. There are cracks in the road every 8 feet or so, so this causes you to bounce up and down uncontrollably. It makes you feel like you have a serious problem, or like you are trotting along on a horse. And if you feel queazy don't even attempt to make the drive, it will just make things worse. Why did they make the road this way? I can't figure it out.

comment complex

I have a problem. I have a serious complex, it stresses me out if no one comments on my blog. I know that sounds lame, I should get a self esteem. But anyway, after I blog I check everyday to see if anyone has commented. I figure if no one is checking out my blog and reading it then what's the point? My sister Kate has been faithful with her comments and I appreciate it, but where is everyone else? She isn't my only friend, well atleast I thought I knew more people. It's like I am back in highschool, I try to pretend it doesn't matter but really it does. So for my therapy I will blog on, even if no one comments. And my blogs will be funny and great and I will enjoy them.

I have completed my assignment

The rules:
A. The rules of the game are posted at the beginning.
B. Each player lists 6 facts/habits about themselves.
C. At the end of the post, the player then tags 6 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know that they have been tagged and asking them to read your blog.

I am confused by Rule A, posted at what beginning? anyway...

1. I hate unpredictable bugs; grasshoppers, big crazy flies, moths
2. Sometimes when I am almost asleep I make a Hmmm sound that wakes me up. Steve always says "what?" and I get mad because I didn't mean to make any noise, just trying to sleep.
3. In Preschool I got the Miss Tidy award and I still have a desire to keep things tidy, and yes I do think people have a serious problem if they are super messy/dirty.
4. To go along with #3, I love cleaning products.
5. I am almost all gray, atleast on top.
6. To go along with #5, I enjoy prunes.

Okay, I tag Kristen H., Brian and Karen. I know that is only 3 people but the other people I know have been tagged already.

Blog Block

it's like having a brain block, nothing to say, feeling boring. I am totally excited that I have 2 people who care about the condition of my blog, thanks. I will try harder.
Life is starting to feel normal. It took a while for Utah to feel normal to me, also it took a while for me to feel like I would not puke. I love October and I am excited to actually experience fall, it has been years. Here are some pictures of what we have been doing. We took a trip to Arizona and closed on our house down there, yea!!
Kate has given me a blog assingment so I will get that done as soon as possible. Right now I am going to make pancakes for my kids.
