Not an exciting post today, just a list of random things going through my mind:

1. Messy Eater Girl

This girl LOVES to get messy when she eats. She's perfectly able of using a fork and a spoon, but I think it's too bothersome for her. She likes her food, and she likes it NOW, and if she has to get it all over her, then so be it!

2. Valentines

We jumped on the same bandwagon as Margaret and SuzieQ, but the idea was so cute and easy, I couldn't resist. Ty just happened to be dressed up like a pirate, so we decided to go with a pirate theme.

3. Weather Vacuum

It still annoys me that I tend to be a weather vacuum. I admit, I like extreme weather. It excites me. It's fun for me. But I always seem to miss it.

When we lived in Utah before, we were in a drought. We moved away for two years, and they got so much snow and rain, they came out of the drought. Now we're back, and having drought patterns again!

Same with San Antonio. The whole time we were there it was a drought. Water restrictions and everything! Now this winter, since we've left, they've had a lot of rain.

I just seem to always miss the fun! Oh well, I am glad to have electricity, and no floods, etc. So I'll be grateful.

4. Sweet Big Brother

Overheard when Lauren was crying about taking a nap:

Tyler: It's okay Lauren, you're just afraid. But Heavenly Father will help you. You just can't see Him, but He's there.

I just thought that was so cute, cause he was so serious when he said it. He gets afraid a lot, and has learned to pray for help. I know he really believes that God is real.

5. Keyboard Bumps

Am I the only one that didn't know what the bumps on the F key and J key are for? Since our computer is in our bedroom, sometimes I end up typing and surfing the Net in the dark, since Brad is sleeping. I was SO HAPPY to learn that those bumps are there to know where your index fingers should be when typing. Now I don't have to lift the keyboard up toward the moniter to get enough light so I can find the right keys!

6. Sick Days

One or more of us have been sick, it seems, for a long time. That has led to a lot of Dr. Visits, and a lot of time hanging out at home. Missed meetings, missed workouts at the gym, missed family outings. But we've managed to still have some fun.


  1. What a cute Valentines card idea! This is the first time I've seen it.

    And Chloe would love your fish face. A sure way to get her to laugh is to give her a fish face. :)

  2. I love reading about your random thoughts! Here are my random comments:
    1. Mom and Dad are leaving today. Boo :(
    2. JJ missed the bus this morning.
    3. Reed ran a 5.3 40 yd dash. Not bad for a boy of gigantic proportions. But he still wants to knock it down to 5.0 flat.
    4. I love the pirate valentine. So cute!
    5. It's so sweet that Ty comforts Lauren and teaches her about Heavenly Father.
    6. I gotta go shower and get to the school for book fair and lunch dates with the girls.

  3. Awesome Valentines day cards! What a great idea!

    My keboard does not have bumps on the f and j! Oh wait...yes they do! Wow, I never knew that either! Cool!

    Thanks for sharing your random thoughts, that was fun!

  4. Super cute Valentine!!! Clever idea to dress him up. :)

  5. Wow, awesome Valentines!!! I NEVER knew about the bumps. You learn something new everyday. You are amazing, Sal!

    I enjoy every post you put, whether be random thoughts or not. What a great idea for Valentine's day. As for Lauren, she looks too cute even with all the food everyway. As for the weather, I'm so sick of rain! but we needed here anyway. As far as the big brother, I knew the minute i met him he would be a super great big brother. How sweet of him to comfort her with the best medicine in the world, "heavenly Father". We love you guys and miss you like crazy!!! Marcie

  7. Loved this post... random works for you girlie... :o)

    How I love all three of those little fish faces! Thanks for the keyboard 101---I had never noticed those marks (but they're practically worn down anyway). Love and miss you. xoxoxoxoxoxoxMOM
