Mormons and Our Horns Story

Those that are LDS know this story, or at least the person involved. For those who do not, J. Golden Kimball was one of the leaders in his time. He was known as the “Swearing Apostle” because he was quite colorful with his language. “Uncle Golden” stories have become a type of folklore for members of the LDS Church. One of the best known...

Poor Dean

Yesterday Dean got is 2 month old shots. Two in each leg and an oral vaccine. He took them rather well. He cried for a little while, but after a couple minutes of rocking him and cuddling him he settled down. The problem arose at 2:45pm.

Headaches, Anyone?

So everyone knows I have chronic headaches with a few migraines sprinkled in there for fun. Sometimes it feels like no one really gets what an impact these have on my day-to-day life. Every day, my choice is to feel miserable and in pain, or take a few Excedrine Migr. and feel miserable and drugged. The pain pills help with the pain, but don’t...

Paranoid Driving

I was goofin’ off last night and ran into this post and couldn’t have agreed more! I’m one of the few “lucky” (or good-hee hee) ones that hasn’t ever been a car accident while driving. I was in a car *once* when the driver was hit, if that counts. I think I’m so paranoid when the kids are in the car! Even with my...

Badminton & Table Tennis

I was totally surprised badminton and table tennis, aka ping pong, are Olympic sports!! I must not have paid attention the last few years. Paul and I recently put a badminton set up in the yard for fun and exercise. He’s creamed me in a couple games, but it’s been a lot of fun. I can totally see how it really takes physicality and...
