random list

  • The house is so quiet and it's only 9:30.
  • That's the first time that has happened in...ever, I think.
  • I'm making a list of slightly interesting things happening around here in hopes of avoiding the MOUNTAINOUS pile of clothes in my laundry room.
  • We had awesome potatoes tonight stir-fried in curry seasonings.
  • My hands are going to smell like curry for a while.
  • As will our house.
  • My baby is asleep in his swing and he keeps momentarily waking up to look at me with drunk eyes.
  • I like the idea of sleeping in a perpetually moving swing but I'm afraid it would make me sick.
  • A hammock would be better.
  • I used to occasionally sleep in a hammock outside my apartment in college.
  • Not always by myself.
  • That sounded naughty.
  • But I'm not going to explain myself.
  • I think it's more fun that way.
  • Tonight we had great fun dancing to some favorite family tunes after dinner.
  • It's a fabulous way to burn some calories, create some memories and bring on the giggles.
  • We saw a strange thing the other day: a couple of police cruisers pulled in front of us in a mass of traffic on the freeway and carefully swerved back & forth across all lanes until everyone slowed down. We assumed they were preparing us to meet a roadblock or a serious traffic jam up ahead, but at the next exit one of the police cars got off the freeway and another veered over to the carpool lane and pulled someone over, and we kept going with no sign anywhere of any major jams or incidents.
  • Weirdness.
  • Anyone have any thoughts?
  • Here's a thought: it's not even 10pm and I'm going to bed.
  • Sing hallelujah.
  • Over and out.

It really is no excuse but I am reminded why I have slacked off in the blogging department on days like today when I don't shower until 5pm. And not by choice.
That is all.

Sheer Bliss...literally.

Michael & I splurged and bought ourselves some ice cream this weekend. His favorite indulgence is Ben & Jerry's Phish Food, but I'm not a big fan of stuff with marshmallows in it (unless it's a Smore, then bring 'em on) so I went with a new choice, something I had my eye on for a few weeks whenever I'd trudge around Walmart with the kiddies. And boy-howdy it did not disappoint.

In case you can't read the fine print that says "Sheer Bliss: Pomegranate with dark chocolate chips." *wipes drool off face* That's right. POMEGRANATE. WITH DARK CHOCOLATE. I don't think I even need to describe the delectable goodness. I knew I had made a good choice when our cashier starting raving about how amazing it is and practically wouldn't let us leave until he had recited a few sonnets about it. But I got it home and took one bite. Oh my. So much creaminess, so little time. To give an idea, the basic ingredients are something like: cream, milk, sugar, 100% pure pomegranate juice, cocoa butter...I'm sorry, I'm drooling again. Plus, my yumminess came in a metal tin that I can keep forever (I think it's going to hold all the Nerf gun darts that have infested my house) and Michael's got all soggy as it sat out and is now rotting in a landfill somewhere. AND it was only $2.00, which was ridiculously cheap for a pint of amazing ice cream when you consider that most brands are twice that. So if you see a metal tin of ice cream in your grocer's freezer that says "Sheer Bliss" on it, you need to believe the marketing hype because it really IS sheer bliss.
Thank you for your support.

Sheer Bliss has never heard of me. I just REALLY like their ice cream.
