Typos suck.

I made a stupid typo at work today. My email should have said "The data was gathered from the general population." I was in a hurry and I abbreviated population to "pop." or so I thought... I somehow added an extra "o" and spell check is NOT your friend in this type of situation. So-- it read, "The data was gathered from the general poop."

Just when I thought, "maybe no one noticed?"-- I get a reply asking if Lieutentant PeePee was in agreement. UGH!!!

Lesson Learned: Don't abbreviate. Spell Check has a sense of humor.

Potter Rave

I have had a blast the last couple of days talking with my friends about the new book. Hopefully this isn't considered spoilers for anyone--but the sheer amount of intensity and deaths furious yet exciting! I was so sad and struck--it's crazy how attached I felt to certain characters! I was a sucker for that epilogue as well-- that is what most of us have been chatting about---silly, I know, but oh so fun! I can't wait for Spencer to be old enough to read this series!

Natural Science Center

Spencer and I spent the afternoon at the Natural Science Center in Greensboro yesterday. We went for his little friend's birthday party-- but we ended up spending all afternoon there! He loved every exhibit! The planetarium, the zoo, the dinosaurs, the discovery rooms, etc. He favorite exhibit was the Meerkat Manor. They had baby meerkats! He watched them for nearly an hour. I bought him a meerkat T-shirt and promised that we would be back soon.

Four Wheeler Fun

Spencer and IV are having a blast making new paths on their four wheeler. They like their motorcycles - but the four wheeler has a new charm to it! Plus they can follow Boppa around on his 4 wheeler!

Prayers for Elaine

I am asking all of my friends for their thoughts and prayers for Elaine (Melissa's Mom.) Elaine and Ben were in an auto accident in Myrtle Beach --Ben in okay, but Elaine needs your healing thoughts and prayers. We hope she can be transferred to a hospital closer to home and can start her journey towards health and repair.

How can the weekend be over all ready?

I can't believe it is already Sunday evening! How do our weekends just evaporate?

First, let me post about the crop I went to this weekend at Betty's store-- It was fabulous! Meeting new/old friends is such fun! Girls, you kept me laughing all weekend!

We finally made it to the new Harry Potter movie-- It was AWESOME-but I was surprised where they decided to end this movie... still very cool!

Spencer is just fantastic. He swam tonight, caught bugs, watched a movie and cuddled with me. I am the luckiest Mom in the world!

Tag I'm it!

My friend Leslie tagged me on her Blog (L'espoir fait vivre ) to post 7 random facts about here we go!

1. I talked with an old friend today and he made me laugh ALL DAY long. Old friendships are golden!
2. I tried a new restaurant tonight, got the wrong entree and didn't even realize it until my mom pointed it out. I was all, "Damn this chicken is dry" and my mom said-- That is because it is pork you doofis!!!
3. My friend Kim sent me a funny card today that totally cracked me up. If you never thought a greeting card about the Amish could bust a gut, you need to see this one....
4. I went to the movies tonight and saw License To Wed. It was funny--just about the entire cast of The Office was in it!
5. I just got the new Stampin Up catalog and couldn't find anything I wanted to order--can you believe that? Maybe I was in a bad mood???
6. I am reading the book STIFF right now. Nope-- not what you are thinking-- it is about forensics--and the author has a keen sense of humor. It is very interesting!
7. I just framed the portraits of my little man, Spencer, we did at Olan Mills a couple of weeks ago. I can't believe how big he is getting--and his new toothless grin just melts my heart!

Cookie Monsters

IV is spending the night with Spencer tonight. Those two together are...whew! They fought imaginary Ninjas in the yard, then we had pizza, then we played games (they both cheat!) then I got the great idea to make cookies with them. They wanted to use green sprinkles to make "booger cookies"-- UGH! Then they used decorator icing and made abstract art (aka huge messes)but had a blast! Right now they are in their sleeping bags and giggling hysterically --which means either one of them pooted or both of them pooted. Geez...little boys!

Congrats John and Melissa!

John and Melissa are having a baby! (I can't believe I don't have a digital picture of John and Melissa to post for this announcement-- shame on me!) Spencer and I wish you health and happiness and we can't wait to welcome your new little one in 8 short months!

What is a triop anyway?

Spencer is doing a little science experiment right now--growing triops. I have never heard of triops before-- it just looks like stagnant water to me, but he is having the best time watching the eggs hatch and the little weird things swim around.
I love watching how much detail and concern he has with his little creatures!
