Little known fact

Cobwebs can withstand automatic dishwashers.


There was spider that had taken up residence in one of my KitchenAid attachments. After throwing it onto the floor to scare him out (and subsequently squashing him), I tossed the whisk attachment in the dishwasher. Once the load was done, the whisk still had remnants of cobweb on it. No longer sticky, but definitely still there. That spider silk is wicked strong (heat & soap resistant) stuff!! :-D

Understanding Sarah....

The hubby and I were talking over lunch today (he had off for MLK day--woot!)... talking about just how much has changed for us in the last 3 years.

If you had told us 3 years ago that we'd have bought a house, been given an SUV, and had 2 kids inside the three years, we'd have said you were nuts!

I think I better understand why Sarah (Abraham's wife) laughed when the angel told her they'd have a kid. It really was laughable....

.........wants to run away screaming......... but I can't run with an almost 22 month old clinging to my leg!!

No, actually things are going just fine.

We're all recovering from head cold/sinus/cough stuff (except the baby, she escaped, PTL).

BD#1 still likes his little sister, despite the interrupted sleep (we moved her to the big crib in his room this week). In evidence that he still likes her, I submit the following pictures:

In the first, he's giving her one of his favorite blocks.

In the second he's just sitting beside her on the couch...please notice that he's not poking at her or trying to shove her off the couch...which IS the evidence that he likes her (that and the way he lights up when he sees her get up in the morning or being carried into the room after a nap)... It's like he's excited that she's still here.... ....which is good since she's staying. ;-)

Happy New Year, everybody!!!!!!!

On measuring things...

Actually, (in reference to this post) it's teaspoonful or teaspoonfuls, according to the site!! Oh well!!

I thought it had two "l"'s, which explains my confusion. It is ONE word, spelled like one word, not like two words smashed together, which is how it sounds! If it were two words then my questions stands.... Which one do you make the plural?

I feel naked... and behind..... O.o !?!

Notice I said "feel," not "am".... and no, my behind isn't naked either. :-D

The feeling of nakedness comes from messing with our anti-virus software... dumping the high-priced pain in the behind stuff and going with really well-functioning free stuff. Just a weird feeling... although the free stuff found some stuff that the high-priced stuff had let through.
Enough stuff in that ^ there sentence?!

Anyway... I am getting behind on e-mails.... I leave the ones I want to put a modicum of thought into answering marked as "new".... and right now I think I have more "new" email than I can answer in a week's worth of kids naps...... so while everyone is sleeping, off to answer e-mail I go....fully clothed! :-)

Trivia question...

When talking of measuring things, is it teaspoonsfull or teaspoonfulls?
