~1~ Angry Birds. Evidently it's a craze, but I've never played. Not once. But over Spring Break the boys got an Angry Birds board game, and we spent many evenings building structures and launching an angry Giant Red Bird to knock down some cute little Green Pigs.
It turns out I am pretty good at launching the Giant Red Bird.
It also turns out I am pretty good at knocking over the cute little Green Pigs.
Which was making everyone else quite ... angry.
~2~ Skeletoes. I understand the concept but (and this is just my personal opinion) I think they look ridiculous.
During a recent visit to some outlet stores, I was wandering around a shoe store and picked up a pair to get a closer look.
And I discovered something I never, ever knew.
Skeletoes only have FOUR toe spaces; evidently, the fourth and pinkie toes share a space.
For some reason I found this incredibly funny.
~3~ Jonathan is concerned for my health. This afternoon he came up to me, put his arm around my shoulder, and said I was looking tired and that I probably needed a break.
He was really wanting me to cave in and let my fingers do the dialing for the nearest pizza take-out joint.
But I've got his number ... my son's that is, not Papa John's.
~4~ Today someone asked me if I've lost weight. It's ridiculous how such a simple question can make me insanely happy ... how it can make my day ... heck, how it can even make my entire week.
I was so happy I celebrated by having dessert.
~5~ I don't know why, but somehow this looks like it would be a fun place to have a glass of red wine.
~6~ When we were on vacation I got tired of everyone complaining and/or rolling their eyes when I wanted to take a picture.
So I started taking pictures of trees.
Trees are much more cooperative.
And they pose very nicely.
~7~ Finally (and this should have been #1) pray for us. A week from this Saturday we are hosting at our house a post prom party for the entire junior class.
**now go visit Jen for some more Quick Takes.
