How often do you get asked or even ask this question? It’s an American standard. You see someone and you ask how they are. But, do you really want to know? You expect to hear the answer “fine” or “good” and are shocked when that’s not what you get. You might even stumble in the conversation and not know what to say next.
School is back in session already. I know it’s hard to believe. Maggie switched schools this year and is now attending the school closest to the neighborhood. We are VERY excited to be on a new adventure this year, meeting new people, and making new friends.
Here are the comparison shots I know you were all looking for. The first day of school vs. the last day of school. It is SO AMAZING to see how much a child can change in just nine months. For a real shocker, go back to my June posting of last year and see the difference from the beginning of Kindergarten to now. Shocking!
This is me yelling in public “My husband is so hot!” Again, my eyes popped out of my head when I read that I was supposed to do that. While I do believe that with my whole being, yelling it out loud was a little scary. David kindly reminded me that “public” is anywhere out in the open, and I yelled it when there really wasn’t anyone around to hear me. Whew, I followed the directions, and I didn’t embarrass myself. Win for me! The other fun direction was that we were supposed to kiss at every stoplight until someone honked. My loving sweetie, knowing that I would die of embarrassment if I did that, kissed me at every light but stopped when it turned green. Did I mention how much I love him. We did stop kissing at red lights after he had a coffee. Bluck, I hate coffee.
Here we are at the mall. The directions told us to go somewhere and “do something” while talking about one section. We ended up at the mall. We used to window shop all the time together when we were dating, but don’t do it much anymore. It was fun to just hang out. We did purchase a couple things – mostly for Maggie. There were Hannah Montanna t-shirts on sale at the Disney store for $3 – couldn’t pass that up!
Our final task was to go to a grocery store and buy a dessert for each other that the person had never tried and was under $2. Well, please, under $2 – who wants to try it. So, we cheated there. David had the harder task on this one as I’ve tried just about everything out there. He ended up getting me these Premium M&M’s – I moaned when I ate them, won’t deny it. SO yummy.
t with L and A, which was a good time. Then, everyone else arrived after naptime for an egg hunt and dinner together.

Holy cow! It’s been a long time since I’ve blogged. I’ve been spending too much time on Facebook and Twitter. However, there comes a time when everything can’t be said in a status update.
