50 Shades of Craig

Today I went to bfast with my brother.
Among other things,
he told me about the time last week when he and his friend found a copy of '50 Shades of Grey' sitting in the parental's office.

They decided to be bold.
They decided to be daring.
They opened the book to somewhere in the middle,
and read two paragraphs...

They had to stop there.

It seems at 24, both of their cheeks were too pink to continue on.
His summary, "I think someone was about to get whipped or something..."
And then he had to look away, loosen his collar, and clear his throat. 

I'm giving him points for his attempt alone.

Spring Break gives way to a Side Hobby

This week has been Spring Break for my kids.

The first day was great,
but everyday thereafter has seemed like a tragic glimpse of what summer vacation will be like.
Its not fun.
Not at all.

The kids fight,
just about murder each other,
are best friends,
and then the fighting starts all over again.
I'm tired even thinking about it.

One Liner that just wont go away

You know how some lines just stick with you for eternity?
They can be from movies, books, music, poetry, or whatever else have you,
in truth it doesn't really matter the source.
The fact of the matter is, your stuck with that line for all time seared as a permanent fixture in your brain.

For me,
that line comes courtesy of George R. R. Martin at the expense of his own Jon Snow.
And I bet the barest mention of that name lets you know what my one liner is . . . 

"You know nothing, Jon Snow."

Admit it.
It's stuck in your head for eternity, too.

I can't even tell you how many times I tell people that while observing their stupidity.
Silently, of course.
But still, I say it. 
And then I feel cold,
because we all know how freezing it is on the other side of the wall,
and you can't say that line without remembering that small fact. 

Not sure exactly where I'm going with this.
Probably just needed someone to sympathize with the train of words that refuses to leave me. 
Because don't you all know,
"You know nothing, Jon Snow."

Yesterday at . . . duskish

Yesterday at . . . duskish,
my friend Jamie and I hiked 5 miles in ankle deep mud
 at the prospect that we might see this -

Sunsets are one of my favorite thing.
Especially when they are bright orange. 
Of course, this meant that we were walking back through the mountains in the dark through cougar country...
in the rain -
because don't you know that nothing worth it ever comes easy.

Ghenghis Khan

All I'm going to say,
is that although my husband can do many things.
Handling sickness well, is not one of them.

At present,
I'm of the mind to believe that I just might be married to Ghenghis Khan reincarnate.

Okay, its not that bad....
But the "man-cold" is definitely happening here.
It aint pretty!
