So I shall write nonsense.  
Five Random Things I think You Need to Know:

1. I sleep with a pillow over my head. My husband grumbles about this: he says that one day I'm going to suffocate myself. I say that if HE hasn't already done it, I certainly won't.

2. On Ethan's math worksheet, when he went to list things in the kitchen that were about a liter, a bottle of wine topped the list.

3. Nolan is going on a mission trip to Haiti, soon. I'm somewhere between EEEK! and YAY!

4. When at Logan's Roadhouse (yuck, yuck, YUCK) for lunch yesterday with the in-laws, Ethan was dancing on a bench, doing a sort of breakdancy move (My kids are a touch eccentric). My MIL says, "Oooh! That's that dance like they used to do in the 80's! That Perry Blaine (Nolan's cousin) used to do... you know... what's it called? My FIL rolled his eyes and said, "She means robotics."

It was all I could do to wait til I got to the car and explode with laughter.

5. My husband found a dustbunny the size of his head behind our bed on Saturday night. Since then, he's not missed an opportunity to tease me about it. Today he said, "If you leave them long enough, they might become sentient creatures and try to take over. We'd have to have Sam and Dean come and take them out." To which I replied, "That's not a whole lot of incentive to clean, my dear."

He told me to get out the vacuum and suck them up. ;)

I'm assuming that when you talk about Nolan's mission trip, that it's a church mission yeah?

Still, Haiti... wow. All that comes to mind right now is of Papa Doc and Baby Doc.

Carrie, I can't read what I've written coz the handwriting is just too itty-bitty for me. Yes, I'm aware that the above statement makes me sound ancient. Is there any way I can increase the font a bit? Sorry to be an arse here.
Carrie Leighcarrie_leigh on November 10th, 2008 11:32 pm (UTC)
Huh. It looks fine to me. Sorry?
Mala13oct on November 10th, 2008 11:35 pm (UTC)
Err. I don't know if it shows this way only on my comp or... *scratches head* But I see all your comments in this super tiny fine italics print. The font is so small that I just copy and paste in word to see what you have written.
Carrie Leighcarrie_leigh on November 10th, 2008 11:37 pm (UTC)
Oh, dear! I'm so sorry! It doesn't look any differently to me.

(I just used 'big' in carrots for this)

*grins* This I can read now. *mutters about getting old*

Yes; we were just there on out cruise, albeit on the part of the island that the cruise line basically built a town. He's going to the OTHER side... going to take food and clothes to an orphanage - and he and two of our friends are going to help build playground equipment for the kids.

It's not though our church, but it is a Christian organization that we support. :)

I pray for his safety, that's for sure. But if anyone can take care of themselves, it's my Nolan. He's tougher than Tom Mix!

Whose Tom Mix – that one flew over my head.
Carrie Leighcarrie_leigh on November 10th, 2008 11:38 pm (UTC)
He's a cowboy. A tough cowboy in the Old Westerns. :)
Mala13oct on November 10th, 2008 11:39 pm (UTC)
LOL no wonder it flew over my head.

LOL, I definitely snorted when I read the part about the bottle of wine. :)
Carrie Leigh: winecarrie_leigh on November 10th, 2008 11:33 pm (UTC)
Well, I'm sure they wonder just what it is we do at our house that WINE is what Ethan's mind goes to first!

All of those were funny and very enlightening as well. I use to until about a year ago sleep with a small pillow over my head. I'm very noise perseptive.

I like Logans but prefer Texas Roadhouse. Then again several years ago went there *Logans* for our anniversary and my cesear salad had a piece of metal in it. Which surprisingly was the second place that same day that we found metal in our food.

The food isn't bad at Logans, but the service is always horrendous. I swear, we had the most stupid waitress ever yesterday.

AND it's cramped. Bah.

Though metal? I wouln'd go back, either.

Cute! Especially the Sam and Dean part. :D My parents say that about the dust bunnies under my bed too. I tell them that I keep them for pets and they still make me sweep them out. :/

Cute as always, especially the dancing and the wine. *giggles*

I want Sam and Dean to come visit *Me* too. It's so odd to think that I just got into SPN a year ago!!

Also, our home church has built a clinic (like dr's clinic) in Haiti. In fact, Brent's mum bought him a genuine african peace pipe (used) at the church auction that was raising money for the clinic.

There's also a book called I Wish It Would Rain" that was written by a lady from our home church.

So, basically, all that was to say that Brent and i desperately want to go to Haiti when he has his teacher training so that he can teach Permaculture there.

We have some church family going to Haiti soon, too, at Thanksgiving time. I will send muchly prayer up for Nolan as well. Bless him!
