Clumpy Mascara Lashes

I am honestly not trying to be rude, but do women who walk out of the door in the morning not look in the mirror? What are women thinking when they walk out the house with clumpy mascara? This picture is the best I could find. I've seen worse. I am just wondering if women really do think this look is a good look? I mean, why do you have to put on 6 coats of mascara? One, maybe two coats, then put the mascara down and back away slowly. If your mascara's thick, buy more. Why do women keep putting on old mascara? It baffles me. I am so not trying to be judgemental but I just can not help it. I am so OCD about this. It's totally unattractive. If you just can't put your mascara on with it clumping, go get a makeup lesson.

I know there are probably things that I do that annoy others, but this is one of my greatest pet peeves.

Clumpy is not cute!

Valentines Day!

Valentines Day..... Well... I just have to say Shawn and I are losers... Well, really just me... I guess I'm just getting old but I decided I just wanted to stay home and play on my new laptop.  So, Shawn grilled steak and potatoes.  They were soooooooo good!  That's pretty much all we did.  It's so sad that my mom who is 56 can stay up til 5 in the morning and I'm in bed by 10.

The Magical Stylings of Shawnhan

This morning was not extraordinary, except Shawn felt compelled to brush Katie's hair.  This is not the first time he has felt to the need to brush her hair.  So, he tells her to go and get the brush. She gets it and hands it to me.  I hand it to him.  She says, No.  I want mommy to do it.  He says, Come here Katie. I will make you look pretty.  So this is what she looked like afterwards.  She says, I look crazy!  Shawn says, No you don't! You look great!  Go look in the mirror!  She says,  I look crazy!  I was laughing so hard. I almost peed my pants.  At least my morning started off pretty good.  I hope the rest of the day goes as well.  My schedule looks like I'll be working like a slave for the rest of the week.

Water is your friend! Just say no to soda pop!

Ever wonder why you have a headache at the end of the day? Ever wonder why your skin is so dry? Ever wonder why you feel so bloated (and women it's not your time of the month)? Nine times out of ten it's because you are not drinking enough water.  Put that Dr. Pepper down and back away slowly.  Diet pop is not any better.  You think think because it has no calories, it does no harm. Wrong.  If you look at the sodium on a can of  any diet drink it has the same, if not more than a regular soft drink.  
In an average day, you should be drinking at least 60 ounces of water.  Most people barely even drink 8.  Wonder why America is obese?  That's why.  No lie.  Soft drinks are the leading cause of obesity in Americans. When you come home with a headache, try drinking to glasses of water and don't be surprised if it goes away.  

In December, my church started a fast until New Years.  It could be from anything.  So, mine was from Dr. Pepper.  The first week was rough.  I'm not going to lie.  But after that first week, it was no big deal.  I feel so much better now.  I don't feel bloated or tired anymore.  It's great!  I also lost 6 pounds.  You have no idea how much water contributes to your health.  I tell my clients all the time to drink lots of water, but I myself would drink at least 2 pops a day.  But, water flushes out all that waste you build up in your body throughout the day.  

You should really cut down on the pop intake daily.  You will notice a difference within days.  Remember, WATER IS YOUR FRIEND!

Super Bowl

As you know, last night was the Super Bowl. I had to work. Shawn says, just call in! Who gets a massage during the Super Bowl! Then he says, the Cardinals are wearing OU colors. They'll probably choke (we were rooting for the Cardinals). 

Anyway, the game has already started by the time I get home.  The kids were over at my grandma's (she lives next door). So, I started dinner and then told her to send them over.  They come home with 3D glasses they got from the store.  They had four. One for themselves and then one for Shawn and me.  So, Kaleb sits down and starts writing his spelling words.  Katie goes over to Shawn and says Daddy(sometimes they call him Shawn, sometimes they call him daddy), Which one is the Super balls? The one in the red and white? Are they super balls?  Shawn starts laughing and says, go ask mommy.  So she says, mommy which one is the super balls?  I said, Super bowl. She said, oh! Which one is the super bowl? I said, they are both in the super bowl.  So, I continue to make dinner. It's the end of the 2nd quarter. Then Shawn says, ok guys.  Get your glasses on.  So, we get them on.  The commercials were pretty cool.  Shawn and were both like, we are so going to see Monsters vs. Aliens!!! We had a pretty awesome family night.  I would post some pictures, of the kids with their glasses on, but my camera was stolen at Olive Garden this weekend. =( 

Oh well, such is life! =)

Email to God

Here's a little preface:

My uncle Jay died in June of 2007. He had Wegener's disease, which normally fights the lungs, but fought his kidneys. Anyway, he had to get a stem cell transplant so that he did not develop leukemia. He died of congestive heart failure, because the bone marrow unit at Presby wasn't real efficient with his dialysis. He was a father figure to my kids. He was an amazing man. His life touch everyone he came in contact with. My kids talk about him all the time. It's so amazing how they can still remember him and the things he taught them.

My mom had my daughter, Katie, during the snow days. My mom was explaining to her how email works. She told Katie, I have friends that send me emails and I send them back. Katie says, Like God? My mom said, Yes! Katie said, So, he can tell Jay?

If you touch a child's life in a positive way, they will never forget it. I pray that the impact on my children's lives are positive and not for my own personal gain, but what's best for them!
