W is for Wireless

A little over a month ago, I switched to wireless. Can I just tell ya--what a difference it's made in my life--an every day difference! Now I can go from room to room and all over, stretch out and enjoy the freedom of being, well, wireless.

When I was considering wireless options, the saleslady I spoke with was super helpful. I had more questions than I think she was used to answering but she handled it great. I was surprised at one of the answers I received. I asked her if large people opted for wireless, since they were, well, large, and often not moving all over the place like their slighter counterparts. She said that actually, it's a matter of taste. Some of our heavier peers opt for wireless--I was totally baffled!

So, if you are considering wireless options I have a great recommendation: the Very Sexy bra from Victoria's Secret. It comes in a wonderful variety of colors and prints and you can get it padded or not padded. I love being wireless!

V is for Virtue

For all my LDS chaps out there, you may or may not know that the YW Personal Progress Program has an 8th value now: Virtue.,17884,6884-1,00.html

A copy of the actual insert with the value experiences and project:

I've been serving as the secretary in our ward YW presidency for a couple of months and it's been great to learn more about virtue and I wish that we had had that as a value when I was a youth. It fits in so well with the Young Woman program.

So, just when I was getting comfortable and feeling so uplifted about virtuous things and such, and loving hanging out with all the girls--I was released! They reorganized the RS presidency in my ward and I've been called to serve as the 2nd counselor over enrichment.

I was only in that YW calling for 2 1/2 months--the shortest time I've ever had a calling! While I'm excited to plan awesome activities to enrich the lives of my fellow sisters I am also sad to not get to be with the young women anymore. Well, the Lord left me with a swell consolation prize: I've been asked by the stake to be the leader of the 3rd year girls at Girls' Camp this summer. Yup, me and twenty-two 14-year-olds in tents for a week. This is gonna be fun.

U is for Uncalled-for

Well, of course that previous posting was an April Fool joke! My kids never talk back to me--do yours? For real?!?!?!

Just kidding again....yes they talk back.

Oh yeah, and I am NOT pregnant. Don't y'all remember how I announce my for-real pregnancies? If you don't remember it's because I never announced them :). Now you may be wondering if I really am since I wouldn't tell you anyway....Seriously though, no pregnancy news. We may be done at 4. When we were first married, my hubby used to say, regarding having children, "As many as you want." After the 4th one was born he then said, "We're done, right?" So, I've turned the tables on him and said, "As many as you want," and I added, "but I don't want to be pregnant after 33 or 34." We've got a 2-3 year deadline. I'll let you know, in a non-April-fool-joke-blog if he decides he wants more kids.

Hope you weren't too annoyed by my silly joking. I love April Fool's Day.

T is for Trouble

Yesterday was one of the worst days of my parenting years, regarding my eldest child. She is not a trouble maker, per se, but gets herself in to trouble with the way she has been bad-mouthing me and her siblings. I HATE IT WHEN KIDS TALK BACK! I want to bust out singing "R-E-S-P-E-C-T! Find out what it means to me...." Maybe I'm just emotional because I just found out that we will be parents of 5--can I handle another kid?! "Well, we got trouble! Right here in River City!" to say the least :(.
