The One Where I Yap...

I wasn't going to post today, because seriously...there's just nothing new to report!  Life is good, and fun, but it's all the same stuff going on that I've already yapped about.

But obviously that doesn't stop me from yapping on...

Which I think is probably only interesting to me.

Things like:  
  • It is WARM here.  In the 50's...YAY!  The snow is melting and everything is a muddy sloppy mess...which if you live in Iowa happens to be the most beautiful sight ever.  Ever.  There's chances of snow the rest of the week, but none of us care.  We are basking in the glory that is 50-some degrees.  
  • I met with the high school guidance counselor today about classes for Julie.  I think the counselor (who was WAY younger than me, by the way) may have even been overwhelmed with my sheer enthusiasm.  That happens.
  • It's a weird phenomenon lately...the shifting of feeling older.  I used to group myself with the twenty somethings, knowing they were younger but considering us roughly the same (deluded, I know)  But today, in the counselors office...that would have been a stretch.  But ya know what...I kinda like it.  
  • I'm having a fairly good hair day today.  And dang it, that counts for something.
I love the days that loving life is so easy.  Many days are like that.  Many are like that and I don't even notice...I'm thankful today that I know it.


  1. I like to group my self with the 30's...guessing that too, is a big stretch! LOL You are fun to read even if you feel you have little to say! I am excited for you that Julie is coming to the U.S. and will get to stay with you for a year!! I think it is awesome that y'all are already building a relationship together!! Are your boys excited to have a *big sister*???

  2. I think it's great that you know you are loving life today. I know I also have days where I don't even notice it was a good day until the next day or the day after that!

    And having a good hair day -- it really counts for a lot!

  3. how do you do it!??!? even when you are just yappin' you brighten my day! love you!

    jedd's surgery is at 7:15 am tomorrow!!!!

  4. I can't wait til y'all get to meet Julie!!

  5. Lovin' life with ya!

    Good hair days - so valuable! :) I can't imagine you having much else though...

    Today it was in the 60s here. I went outside when Dave got home and as I stepped out into the warmth and sunshine I heard "There is a God!" slip out of my mouth. Of course Dave then looked at me like I had lost my mind. Had I actually questioned His existence in the below zero temperatures??? NO, but today for sure felt like he was smiling at me big time!! :)People don't really say "big time" any more do they? Well, I do. I guess I'm feelin' ya on the getting older thing...

  6. My word verification for my previous comment was 'dinfine'. Are you going to have a fine dinner tonight? Or maybe it means I will...Hmmmm, I was going to make tacos. Must be you!

  7. Good hair days...which is exactly why when my hair grows up...it wants to be like yours! haha

  8. You put into words what I was just thinking today "I love the days where loving life is so easy." Amen! Don't shut your yapper ;)

  9. At least someone is having a good hair day.

    Hang on to feeling good about feeling older, it won't last long, by the time your guys are teenagers, you will be old and dumb. Not trying to bust your bubble, just speaking from experience. At 13 they begin to know everything.

    Im 35, "mother" to a 13 year old, and I am proud to say, I am dumb.

  10. I resent my email to ya with my address. Let me know if you don't get it! :)

  11. Love this line:

    Many are like that and I don't even notice...I'm thankful today that I know it.

    Keep on keepin' on Sarah!

  12. Here in Alabama, it's 70+ degrees :)

  13. Them are the days to post ABOUT! We can all give praise!
    Good hair days are also praise worthy.

  14. Wow, it's warmer where you are than here! What's up with that??

    You can yap anytime you want...we obviously don't mind.... :)

  15. OK, third time's a charm??? I'm copying and pasting the email address, so I know it's not getting typed in wrong. I sent you an email again, but I sent it from my gmail account. I'm perplexed. Let me know if it works...

  16. I always enjoy to hear what you have to say. And I am glad you had a good hair day. Mine is a whole nother story!! Yikes! I wrote about what happened to my hair today, click on the whote flower on the side bar to see.
    Blessings on the rest of your week!

  17. So you'll relate to this story: Last week, I was at my college alma mater almost every day. In one conversation with the director of campus ministries, he asked what years I had been at NWC. I said 89-94, although because I grew up near campus, I knew people in a 10-year time swing each direction.

    And then I realized the students sitting around me in chapel WERE BORN when I was in college. And if I had heard someone when I was in college say, "I attended here 69-73," I would have immediately thought, "Wow. You are SO old."

    So yeah. I'm old.

  18. I love reading your yapping. Just so ya know. :)

  19. I play those mind games with my age too! ;) Loved your yapping
