Do you believe in magic?
A song written by John Sebastian and released in 1965 by The Lovin' Spoonful.
Okay, Dawn, I am gasping. 1000 square feet? Are you sure? I thought I was the queen of making everything fit, but you put me to shame. What do you do - triple bunks in the bedrooms?
Eh, we just make half the kids sleep outside. Which half depends on how they're behaving that day.
I have a question, as well. I read an American parents forum (we are British) and this year there has been mention of Black Friday quite a bit. We've never heard it before, even on this forum that we've been on for over two years. What does it mean?
It's the day after Thanksgiving when all the crazy people get up at like 3:00 am to go shopping in huge crowds of people to get a Wii or a Tickle Me Elmo or whatever toy is hot this year.
Quick question for you - have you seen this video?!!
"Because I Am The Mom Song"
Yes, but only 495 times. Anita Renfroe is very funny!
I can't get to the website for Julian... I have tried before... it goes to the Carepages main page... what is the direct link to Julian's site?
A lot of you have written me, saying you're having trouble accessing his site. There isn't a link that takes you directly there. Go to Carepages.com. Look at the top right where it says "sign in", "create", "visit",or "register here". Click "register here" if you don't have an account. You have to set up an account on CarePages before you can access a page. I believe the only information they ask for is a username and a password. If you already have an account, click on "sign in" or "visit". After signing in, you'll see a box that says something like "enter carepage name". Enter "juliansworld" with no spaces. That should do the trick. It looks like he and his family had a great time in FL and Julian's doing well with his anti-seizure medication now.
QUESTION: What does 'ROFL' mean anyway? I must be totally lame.
It's one of these, I think.
Roaming Over Floridian Lakes
Raising Ostriches From Lithuania
Ripping Off Funny Leprechauns
Running Over Furry Lemurs
Rolling On Floor Laughing
Rhinos Overindulge Fresh Lettuce
Ruminate On Flavored Ladyfingers
Repeating Our French Lesson
Does this mean you didn't get any pumpkin bread? Or did you start over?
Are you kidding? I just threw a little more flour in the mixer and commenced baking.
You gave a mixer to a "one, two, three, five, six, eleven" year old? And then threw a bowl full of flour into this mix. At anyone one of those ages I might think that your decision warranted : psychological evaluation. In other words... You're crazy!!!
Here's a question for Sunday's post: What were you thinking?
Much like Homer, I was thinking, "Mmmmmm pumpkin bread."
Care to post your sugar cookie recipe?
I don't actually have a favorite sugar cookie recipe. Thanks to one of my readers, I found this though. Click here to see The Twelve Days of Cookies from The Food Network. Also, Hallmark magazine had a pull out section of cookie recipes in their fall issue. In their current issue, there are a bunch of cake mix recipes that are really yummy sounding! Have you guys seen this magazine? I had never even heard of Hallmark magazine until I received an email from the editor. I've got to say I'm not a big magazine fan, but I'm loving Hallmark magazine! There are no articles on "How to lose 50 pounds overnight" or "How to keep your lover happy" or "What BritneyAshleyLindseyParis Has Done Lately". It's a nice magazine with heartwarming and inspirational stories, good recipes, ways to spruce up your home, entertaining tips, ways to connect and much, much more. Because it's such a good magazine, I was honored and happy to say yes when they asked me to write an article for an upcoming issue.
Amen to cookies being the best food group!! I have friends that make fun of me for eating cookies for breakfast. My philosophy is if I'm going to eat a cookie I may as well start my day with it. :)
I know this isn't a question, but I had to address it. There's nothing wrong with eating cookies for breakfast in my opinion. They're no worse than say, Pop-Tarts, donuts, or coffee cake, right? If Paula Deen says that cheese is a food group, then cookies can be a food group too!
ROFL. I just wrote a 50,000 word novel in a month for NaNoWriMo. I couldn't have done it without my laptop (to probably hide from the masses) my headphones (to drown out their screams and cries for attention) and Pandora.com (for great tunage). Oh, and chocolate. How could I forget the chocolate? Good luck. I still have at least 50,000 words to go. But now that I discovered the secret ingredients to success (see above)then it should be easy right? Right??
Ummm sure? I keep seeing NaNoWriMo. I have no idea what this is, but it sounds like either the lyrics to a Wiggles song or a Native American name. NaNoWriMo, a lesser known Indian, was with Sacagawea on Lewis and Clark's expedition.
Believe it or not my wife is sitting right behind me right now playing Spider Solitaire. She's so good she plays it with two suits. How many suits do you play the game with? (A deliberate attempt at getting a Sunday night question answered.)
No suits. I generally, just wear jeans and a Tshirt.
Spider Solitaire ?? Do you play that on Pogo.com? I love pogo.com play often would love to play a game with you sometime if that's where you play.
I just play the game that came on my computer. I haven't had time to play on Pogo in months, but I used to play Canasta on Pogo with a few friends.
Did you know they have Ear Wax and Vomit flavored Jelly Bellies?
Yes! I also know, thanks to Max, a family friend, that eating a vomit flavored Jelly Belly will make you turn green and throw up in your mouth.
Men do not care what is on TV. They care WHAT ELSE is on TV!!!
Again, not a question, but oh so true!!!
So tell me, what time do all your kids go to bed?
About two hours after I tell them to go to bed.
How do you find the time to write??!?!?!?!?!?
I stay up until 1:00 or 2:00 in the morning.
I recently started a blog, which I find such a challenge to keep up with, even though I enjoy it...sometimes it creeps into my other responsibilities, like say, feeding my kids. Which leads to my next question: Do we have to feed them every day??
Yes, but popcorn, cereal, cookies, cheese sticks, and fries all count as meals.
As for the commercial dodging, do you have or have you considered TiVo?
Nope and nope. If he didn't get to flip through channels, he'd find some other irritating habit. Or, maybe I should say, I'd find something else to complain about.
Hey Dawn - Good for YOU for getting out. Might as well before the storm of 07 hits, right? This storm better produce they way they are playing it up - it is like SWEEPS week for the weather guys!
I had no idea there was a snow storm coming. I had to call my mom and complain because life didn't make sense to me anymore. My mom ALWAYS calls me when there's inclement weather on the horizon. Always! I guess she got tired of me scoffing everytime she warned me the weather would be bad.
(Did you know your carpal tunnel goes from your wrist through your elbow and all the way to your shoulder? I do NOW.)
Seriously? I thought the Carpal Tunnel connected Long Island to Connecticut!
