Monday Musings-January 11, 2010

Dear Carolina Panthers,

I missed you yesterday. I hope you're somewhere warm soaking up all of the sunshine. It still feels like the arctic tundra over here. We're looking forwards to the tropical heat wave predicted by mid week. Highs in the 50's? Whoo Hoo! Bikini weather for sure! (Not that I would ever be brave enough to wear one!)

Stay warm,

Mrs. Sister


Dear Bethany,

Mommy is so very proud of you! Why?
1.  You stood up for what's right and let your moral compass guide you.
2.  You've grown into quite a remarkable young lady.
3.  And the straight A's were just icing on the cake.
Well done, Sweet Cheeks!



Dear Mr. Virus,

Go away! Now! I have not appreciated the major headache for the past 3 days. Nor have I enjoyed the extreme fatigue that has gone along with this. Or those waves of nausea. I'm not having any of it! You've overstayed your welcome and I'm kicking you out. Sayanora you miserable, annoying, punky, evil, vile, unwelcome scum bucket that you are. Don't let the door hit you on the way out!

Not at all yours (don't even THINK about it!),

The 5th


Awards Monday

Thank you, Erin (from Cultivating Rosebuds) for my lemonade stand. I love this award. I take it to mean that when life throws you lemons, make lemonade!  Although I have received this award prior (see here and here for my nominees) it is something that never goes out of style. Thank you my newest blogging friend! And for those who do not know Erin, please take a moment to check out her blog. She's such a sweetie!


On a final note: Do you want to know why I walk Daisy before the sun comes up?

I don't want to scare the neighbors, that's why!


Purple Flowers said...

Your daughter has become a lovely young lady - so pretty!

Lee the Hot Flash Queen said...

I am cracking up over that picture of you!! LMAO!!

Jephy's Mom said...

You need a little sign to go with your dog walking outfit. "Homeless and Hungry". Daisy would fetch you a little bit extra.

Pelican Joe said...

I like how Jephy's Mom thinks!

I am proud of both our children! Paul did had a swim meet yesterday where he swam faster on his back for 100 yds than on his front (freestyle) for that same distance. Granted, he did have a piece of pizza before the freestyle which slowed him down! I feel bad about that.

Michelle said...

You know....I'm not missing football all that much this year. I guess the Chiefs sub-par performance for many years running has done that to me. Oh well.

Bethany is beautiful!

Have a wonderful Monday!

Tracy said...

I have been fighting that same funky feeling myself, with out the stomach upset. I am very ready for it to be gone too.

And we are expecting those same balmly 50 degree breezes this week ourselves - but I will avoid the bikini as well, even shorts, not with these white legs.

banshezmom said...

Aren't you lucky?
I'm almost happy that we might see 35 today!

Gracey said...

Your own photo cracked me up!

Corrie Howe said...

Yeah, well we'll be missing the Packers next week Sunday.

You're daughter should be a model. I agree A's are just icing on the cake.

I slept all weekend too. I think my migraine is gone.

I'm not up that early, so I won't see you.

Tiffany said...

your daughter is gorgeous--and congrats to her for the straight A's!

panthers didn't play but the Pats had their butts handed to them. that always makes me feel good!

blueviolet said...

Ok, that picture is absolutely hysterical!!!

kys said...

LOL at the photo of you. Your daughter is beautiful and I hope you feel better soon. You have to recup. enough to wash the car in your bikini.

Ms Bibi said...

Bethany is such a beautiful young lady, good job mom and dad.

You don't look too bad yourself in your little morning getup,lol

Thom said...

Wow...three cheers to Bethany. What a great young lady she must be. I love your letter to Mr. Virus LOL especially the closing line LOL. And that picture is just too funny. Congrats on your award. Feel better soon :) And have a great week ahead :)

Tattoos and Teething Rings said...

Haha, great pic ;)

And I agree, from what you've posted, you're Bethany is a wonderful young lady.

Weezer said...

Bethany must not take after you. Come on now. compare those two photos. she's beautiful and in that photo, you're just......well........ :)

Okay, now. So did you see what the Cowboys did? Unfortunately I'll be over at the folks' home in Columbus so I might not get to see them play. Pffssst!

I'm so looking forward to the weather at the end of the week. We're supposed to be like 57 or so! That's balmy comparing.
Have a good Monday, dear friend. Loving you today. You crack me up.


we look eerily similar on our dog walks!

Life Laugh Latte said...

That's why I make my 9 year old walk the dog before school...while I enjoy my warm latte! Feel better. Holly

Kathleen said...

Awww...proud mama! Way to go, Bethany!

Holly said...

I think you should make that your profile picture. Your daughter is beautiful. Hope that virus takes a hike soon!

drollgirl said...

sounds like you have an amazing daughter! and she sure is lovely!

and i prefer to go on walks when it is dark, too!

BashfulToast said...

Straight A's!? I'm so jealous! You've got a smarty pants on your And that picture of you is adorable!Haha, I love it.=]

Tracy said...

regarding your note: exactly! if people would forget about spoiling their kids instead of truly loving them, they would do a much bigger service to them in the long run. Kids need to be able to stand on their own, otherwise, as adults, they will never make it! And that is the generation that is supposed to be taking care of us in the future! With the way society is going, that is very scary!

Betty said...

WOW, What a beautiful daughter you have!
I wish I had a daughter like yours!

gayle said...

Bethany is very pretty!!

AJ said...

That's a great picture! :)

kristibonney said...

I really enjoyed this post. It sounds like you have a great daughter with a good head on her shoulders. You should be proud. In fact, give yourself one of those awards! I loved the early morning photo of you. I have to admit that I chuckled, but that's only because I look a heck of a lot worse in the mornings.
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. You've stopped by before. I appreciate your return visit. :)

Kristi, Hello...Is This On?

Kimberly said...

Your daughter is lovely. I can see that you are very proud of her.

You look cold in the photo.

I hope you feel better!

My husband has an appointment on Friday.

Brian Miller said...
