Andrew is always counting things….toys, magnets, chairs, pieces of trash, dishes, laundry piles, pictures on TV, cars, paper, and anything else that doesn’t move too fast for him to be able to point at and count. So, I decided to make my own list of numbers to keep count:

One – the number of pets we have (a fish)

Two – the number of cars we own!

Three – the number of children I have

Four – the number of my oldest child’s next birthday

Five – the number of fingers I have on each hand (duh!)

Six – the number that comes after five

Seven – the date of my birthday

Eight – the number of years Mitch and I have been married

Nine – the number of physical addresses we’ve had since we’ve been married

Ten – the total number of Indian boys

Eleven – the date my third child was due (she came six days earlier)

Twelve – I once worked in a shoe store where the same little girl came every year to purchase a pair of white Easter shoes. She had six toes on each foot….I kid you not.

Thirteen – If over fourteen stories high, remember to always subtract one floor.

Fourteen – the number of friends I have who are pregnant (Chrissy M, Heather D, Leslie L, Becky K, Tasha G, Manuela M, Kelly C, Dawn C, Nicole J, Shea P, Davina P, Leesa B, Cathryn B, & Corie T) …I’m sure I left someone out

Fifteen – I’m done!

Tooth decay


$1200….that’s what it costs to have a root canal nowadays. How do I know? ‘Cause I’m going in for my fourth one tomorrow morning. The endodontist knows my full name and welcomes me in each time. He’s making a killin’ off of me. I wonder where his mansion is. Love those payment plans. Anyone want to donate? Just kidding.

My Playlist


I’ve been wanting to post a playlist of some of my favorite songs so I finally did (you can hear it but scroll down to the bottom of this page to see it). You can choose/change any song to listen to by double clicking on it. I chose most of the songs but motherhood called and I had to leave the computer to fill a juicy cup and change a diaper. My mind didn’t get back to the playlist until Honey got home from work so I just asked him to finish it up for me – hence the funky cool R&B songs like “September, Roller Coaster, Fantastic Voyage” and more. This is my husband’s favorite genre of music and I became quickly addicted to it when we were dating…but for those of you who know him well (Becky), you aren’t surprised a bit at his choices. Thanks for adding some spice to my playlist, babe!
