What I Learned This Week: Crazy Edition

I learned that bonding with a child doesn't cost anything but time.

I learned that I'm stronger than I think I am and I'll do anything to protect my children.

I learned that iKeith voted for Ross Perot and his Dad had a giant sign in his yard which resulted in him being on the news because it was against the law to have a political sign that tall.

I learned that iKeith ate a fortune cookie whole and then couldn't figure out why it was so chewy. He's been stressed out....

I learned that my kitchen is big enough to make some delicious food...I'd venture to call it cozy.

I learned that I'm lucky to be in love with my best friend. 

I learned that every 29 days I need a 5150.

I learned that Don (of Don/Dawn*) likes to sit on the stairs outside my apartment...smoking and reading a book. He also likes to drink Miller Lite and make his dog howl. He howls and then his dog howls. Don...I hope it gives you hell.

I learned that if I eat too many carbs...I get insomnia. I'm turning into an old woman.

I learned that I can't run in the cold and that yoga makes me happy.

I learned that *my people* take their kids to the new Discovery Park in Wheat Ridge.  You people....Mom's that bring McDonalds for their kids' lunch.

I learned that I forgot to watch The Event this week and I didn't miss it. Sorry Jason Ritter.

I learned that if I try to win friends and influence people by baking amazing muffins that the universe will try to screw me and will have iKeith's bosses wife send in muffins to the office too and then my awesome muffins will make her look bad and I'll be challenged to a re-match even though my muffins where clearly better.

*You remember Don/ downstairs neighbors.  


  1. I seriously love this post... LOL TGIF!!

  2. Isn't it amazing what we learn in a week?

    Happy Friday!

  3. Sounds like you are settling in more, that is wonderful!

    Have a great weekend!

  4. What a great list! I love Jason Mraz and Colbie Caillat... that song is so sweet! I'm definitely trying that pumpkin muffin recipe... I made some the other day and let's just say they left a lot to be desired :(

  5. This list totally made me smile. Like Molly said - It's crazy amazing what you can learn in a week.

  6. That's a lot to learn in a week.

  7. Connie,

    I made your pumpkin chocolate chip muffins and they were a hit at my house and at Grace's preschool. I have had several requests for your recipe. Can I give it out?

    I will have to watch my carbs. I have terrible insominia. I am getting old, too.

  8. You learned a lot of great things this week...I hope you eventually got that wine!! :)

  9. YOU! Crack me up. Seriously.
    And the Ross Perot thing...LOVES.

  10. He ate the paper? But how will he know what his fortune is? Probably it was, "you will soon experience anxiety" or maybe, "intestinal issues ahead."

    If that was my husband, he would NEVER hear the end of it. It's just too awesome to let go. You might be a better person than me, though...

  11. The thing with the boss's wife is true? That is some crazy crap right there! Can't wait to bake a batch of your superior muffins!

  12. That is some week, eh? Don't get me started on that full moon. Without knowing it was a full moon, I texted my friend and jokingly said, "is there a full moon tonight?" Then we both got up the next morning, looked outside, and there was the moon, and we called each other and giggled. Kids get crazy... I think my kids and boys had pms but there was beer in the house.

  13. You should stop learning so much!


I love you. You are my best friend! Your hair looks fantastic today!
