Blogging

Is Blogging outdated yet? If so, I’m finally joining in:)
I have several projects that I’m starting on…
First, I want to see if I can start selling my photos. Now, I’m not a people person. I like people just fine, but when it comes to small talk, or any talk, I am a failure. I also tend to tell things I should probably keep to myself…bad filter:-)
Second, I would like to get the house in a routine. I write house becomes naming everyone takes too long. With our new dog, and four kids, we really really need to get ourselves together. We do mealtimes, waking up, and going to bed about the same time. Walking the dog, cleaning, doing homeschooling, outings…all up in the air. It use to be ok, but not so much now.
Third, organization…no details needed.
Fourth, SOMETHING set up for my bad days.
Fifth…another shop for my polymer clay stuff. Its crowding up the house.
sixth, getting the house fully painted…its been almost 6 years since we moved in and we are still not done.
Writing a blog for me involves not caring what people think, but I haven’t read a blog yet that the person doesn’t struggle with negativity no matter how awesome they are. Putting what you think out there is scary when you do it on purpose. I’m used to doing it by accident and getting embarrassed instead.

What Do You Call a Little Boy Who….



So the family was partaking of dinner and the increasingly more frequent past time of trading jokes (okay, bad jokes… okay,fine: *Really* bad jokes) at the dinner table started up once again.

Me: “What do you call a little boy who hangs on the wall all day?”

Matt: “I dunno.”

Me: “Art!”

I get a goofy snicker from Scott, but an eye roll from Matt. Not deterred, I try again.

Me: “What do you call a little boy who lay in front of the door all day?”

Matt: “I dunno.”

Scott snickers because he’s figured it out.

Me: “Matt!”

Matt, slightly annoyed: “DAD!”

Me: “Okay okay, Scott stop laughing at your brother.”

Me: “What do you call a little boy who spends all day in the bathroom?”

…slight pause…

Matt: “Scott!!!”

Now, the real answer was ‘John’ but at this point Sandy, Jean and I were in hysterics, and Scott was glaring visual death upon Matt. Matt, however, was positively beaming with pride.

 

I love my kids. 🙂

 

New Layout

After a failed pseudo-lame attempt at making my own Word Press Theme out of the old clanloman.com theme, I have decided to start a new and look for a Word Press Theme that was minimalist, yet utilized one of the color sets that Sandy and I like. Enter Green-Bug by Got Chance and Nitrogen Designs

 

Personally, I like it. Scott approves of the little green bugs used a html bullets, so here it is!
