I gave in. I've avoided these types of things for so long, but I finally did it. I joined Facebook. Within minutes, I found myself chatting with people I haven't talked to in over 15 years. CRAZY!

It's actually really, really cool.

But I'm still avoiding MySpace.

As I type this, I am listening to my 8-year old daughter scream. She is in her room stomping her feet, hitting things, crying, screaming, and occasionally yelling "Wishes don't come true!"

Would you like to know the reason why she is throwing such a temper tantrum?

Part of it is because she got a role in Mountain West Ballet's version of The Nutcracker. Can you believe it? Most kids would be very, very excited. At least, I think they would be.

Not so, for The Princess.

She is upset because she has been cast as a "Bon Bon" and she wants to be a "Baby Mouse". Frankly, I think that she got the better role. But she doesn't see it that way.

I've told her that she can back out. She doesn't have to be in The Nutcracker if she doesn't want to be. She hasn't taken me up on the offer yet. I really think she will come around. Eventually.

The Dragon will be in The Nutcracker too. She will be a Sugar Plum Paige (I think it's supposed to be PAGE, but that's how they spelled it on the cast list). I can't tell you what her reaction is, because she's asleep. All-day Kindergarten is wearing her out!

Line Upon Line

Just wanted to share a website with you that has brought a smile to my face recently:

Line upon Line: greeting cards for the fullness of times

If you are LDS, you should get a good laugh. If you're not, you might find some cards you like anyway.

Happy Birthday, Rebecca!

When I was One,
I had just begun.

When I was Two,
I was nearly new.

When I was Three
I was hardly me.

When I was Four,
I was not much more.

When I was Five,
I was just alive.

But now I am Six, I'm as clever as clever,
So I think I'll be six now for ever and ever.

I owe you pictures. Lots of pictures. They should be coming this weekend.

Bottom line? I'm exhausted.

I am getting up every morning at 5:45 to get my kids ready for school, and then trying really hard to work all day so that The King doesn't get mad at me *grin*, and by the time the kids are in bed, I am ready for bed too.

But hey! Look at the time! It's almost 10 PM. That just might be a new record for me.

So... I'm still here. I'm just exhausted.

Not So Happy

Today is my Mom and Dad's 38th wedding anniversary.

Except they aren't exactly together anymore.

And really, that's about all I have to say about that.
