Hello, sometimes when I have a list of random things that I want to post but don't really come together, it makes me feel like I am in administration sending memos to my hard working employees.

I have no idea why it makes me feel that way, but it does.

There you go.

1. The girls came down sick with some crazy bug on Sunday night and they were in our bedroom all night whimpering and crying with buckets and trips to the toilet.  We have stayed close to the bathrooms since then, hiding out in our house just in case someone has to make a quick run.  The bug spread from Hallie and Hanna to Heather and Hanna, but thankfully Devin has avoided it and I think we are all over the worst of it.

2. Aren't you so glad I shared that with you? Yes.  I don't know why I wanted to.  Perhaps because it's crazy to get sick in the summer.  Crazy! Who does that?  Well, apparently, a lot of people, but it seems wrong somehow.

3. I love fireworks, and am therefore very excited about tonight. I also love hotdogs and barbecue chicken.  Therefore, today is a near perfect holiday.

4. Today is also my friend Sam's birthday, and that always means that my birthday is in ten days.  Are you getting your dance video ready for me?  I hope so. I really hope so.

5. We are leaving to go on vacation in about a week, so I won't be able to really look at your dancing videos until I get back... but I look forward to enjoying them.

6. My heart is sore today, hurting for the heartbreak some dear friends are suffering, and the girls keep asking me why I am crying.

7.  I think I am going to stop posting my blog updates on Facebook.  I had been thinking about it for a while, and then I saw this comedy sketch, and then I thought about it a lot more, and I have just decided that I don't want to be "The 14th most annoying person on your newsfeed."


  1. I thought that song was so funny when I saw it. And I watched it again on your blog, just because I love it. :)

    Seriously, don't stop posting your blogs on facebook. People can manage who they see on their newsfeed and who they don't want to see, so they can be in charge of that, but your friends really do want to see it, I bet. Go to your blogger stats, and look at how many people go to your blog from facebook. That will tell you that they are using it.

    Although, it isn't like you have to put it on facebook if you don't want to. So do what you want. I'll still love you and read your blog.

    I completely agree. Whenever I or someone in my family (or all of us!) get sick in the summer, I feel totally betrayed by summer. People should only get sick in the winter! Seriously. Doesn't everyone know that? We had the croup for two weeks here, and it felt like FOREVER. I'm sorry about your bug. It sounds awful.

    I don't know what is taking me so long to getting around to sending you the video of us dancing. It's pretty good. I'll go watch it again. Ha!

  2. Oh, and I do the list thing, too. ;)

  3. I'm with your sister on the blog/facebook issue. and I hope you all feel better soon. And I will have to figure out how to post my video. it's amaaaaaaaaaaaaazing.

  4. I'm gearing up to make my dance video for you. Perhaps I will do that today. Yay!! I also don't post my blog on fb but I think for different reasons. Either way...I will read your blog. Fo sho!

  5. I was seriously just talking about how crazy it is to get sick in the summer! It is just so depressing. I hope it's left your house and doesn't come back. Ever. :D Have a blast on vacation!
