Thankful Thursday

Today, I am thankful to/for/about...

  • That I have a minute on a Thursday to make a Thankful Thursday post - have been missing doing these because there is so much I am thankful about on a daily basis
  • That the Grey's Anatomy season premier is minutes away (but must admit that I am bummed that this is the final season for Boston Legal - Denny Crane, coo coo for cocoa puffs!)
  • A margarita after spending too much time with people I don't care a ton about...
  • My Sweetness, Reid, as he is so thoughtful...and for our most enjoyable dinner & conversation on Monday...
  • Elizabeth - and that the Ye Old Alpha site of the aforementioned dinner has dark mirrored glass along the wall close to where we sat. I would have loved to have had a video camera of her playing with herself in the mirror. It was truly priceless!
  • That the Red Sox have made the post season for the 5th time in 6 years! And that the Evil Empire is out! (Just like Heidi Klum would say, "One day you're in, the next day you're out!")
Gotta run...Grey's is on!

E's latest things that make me giggle

The other day, I bought E a new Cabbage Patch baby - the kind that when you feed them a bottle of water, the baby pees. (Work with me folks, I don't want to change diapers forever!) So we filled the bottle and she began feeding the baby. The baby filled the diaper it came with, but you couldn't really feel that the diaper was wet. So I took the diaper off so E could see the baby peeing. While E feeds the baby, the baby pees which was not to the delight of E. She said, "Ugh! Why is her peeing on me? I don't like this!"

While watching the conclusion of the Ryder Cup (way to go U.S.A.!), E was playing with one of her Cabbage Patch baby dolls trying to put it in her shopping cart when she told the baby, "Stop screaming."

We were happy to have Grandma & Papi here this weekend for a visit. They went to Daddy's family reunion on Saturday while E & I went to the first half of the football game at West Lib. E wasn't a fan of the crowd at the game. She refused to walk to the stadium. Refused to sit anywhere but on my lap. Barely spoke over a whisper. She's so funny in a crowd.

I Couldn't Resist

I'll admit it. Every once in a while Reid comes up with a funny. His idea...Elizabeth's pantry:

Things That Make You Go Hmmmm?

Anyone who thinks that John McCain is a viable option to be the next President...especially in light of the vetting process for Sarah Pallin - wow! The Christian Conservatives must be banging their collective heads against a wailing wall somewhere...

This postcard that I got in the mail several months ago. I find it rather amusing...let's see who else can figure out why I find it so amusing (give me a jingle if you need help):

Why we seem to be having issues with the US Postal Service at our new home. First it was the graffiti on the house. (It was removed, BTW, after the phone call to the Postmaster General of Wheeling who laughed at me for telling him something so crazy as my delivery dillhole wrote on the side of my freaking house. Then it was me not receiving a package that was mailed to me after an eBay win - it was sitting in Wheeling for over a week...I had to go through the hassle of calling USPS general customer service to register the non-delivery of an item with a tracking number. Now the latest is another eBay item that has been shipped to the house. I was home on Friday when the mail was delivered, but the Delivery Dillhole (DD for short) couldn't have run the bell to get me - that's crazy. So he slipped a little "you weren't here but need to sign for this" notice in the slot - partially - not enough for it to come through on the house side. I didn't see it on Friday. We weren't home on Saturday, so another slip went in the box. This one I saw. I signed both slips and put them out for the Monday pickup & delivery. DD didn't bother to show up at all on Monday. How do I know this - because I was home all freakin' day! When DD does bother to show up, there is a note on the new slip that says the item is too large for the slot and we now have to go to the PO and pick it up. Hey, DD, you couldn't have told us that like say on Friday of last week? Also, the other "Hmmmm" factor - does it cost extra to have your mail delivered 6 days/week? If so, where can I sign up?

Party Planning 101: Don't spoil the surprise! Be sure to check the dates on this announcement that Papa Rick scored from the Times West Virginian for me!

Which Brady Are You?

Who among us doesn't love the Brady Bunch? Who can't sign all of the songs by the Silver Platters? If you were a Brady, who do you think you would be? I took a test and I'm...

You Are Cindy Brady

Warm hearted and sweet, you have a childlike innocence that lets you see the good in everyone.

But you're also a bit of a baby. You stick your nose where it doesn't belong... and cry when you get caught!
