Puppy Chow for Children and Other Random Weirdness

Howdy Bloggy People~

This week has been a whirlwind of activity and general craziness. 

I have no idea how to transition into the first topic so....

One of the fun things about having a blog is having the Sitemeter that takes a roll call of all the visitors. I love to see where people come from. For instance, about once a week someone searches from Australia to look at the ballet skirt tutorial I did last year. 

As a side note, in my senior year of high school I had a serious obsession with Australia and really, really wanted to go there (I still hope to someday!). That is why when I see see a blog visitor from Australia I am so amazed!  

I know. I am easily entertained.

Anyway, one of the features of this site meter is that it will tell me what searches have brought about people to my site.  Here are some of the crazy ones:

  • Post bagel sleepiness
  • Can't. Stop. itching.
  • Sugar Hangovers.
  • I got ya where I want ya, now I am gonna eat ya
  • homemade puppy chow for kids

And my favorite (since dance skirt tutorials are are 90 % of the searches to my blog):

  • Tutu Cancan Boutique Skirt

Cuz you know me, I am all about that CanCan Boutique Tutu. I should have posted that for the Fashion Fiesta that went on this week (that unfortunately I did have a chance to participate in!)

Oh the world wide web legacy I am leaving....

Anyway, thank you to those who commented this week. The kids made it through another year of standardized testing, and lived to tell about it. As you can tell, I did to.  Thank you for your kind thoughts and prayers! 

Now I am going to share a little secret with you.  But first I have to explain...

The short list of this weeks craziness includes stressful job stuff for The Mister; stressed kids; big work projects; friends turning 40; preparing for bible study; basket ball ending; the opening of swimming team season; and helping The Mister prepare for a big inservice he teaches next month (whew!)

This is the secret to ending a very full week. It works wonders. So much better than 800 milligrams of Ibuprofen and a Diet Coke (my old standby for everything that ails me).

I crawled into bed at 3 o'clock this afternoon, with a handful of Pringles and the fiction novel I am currently reading. Not only did I disregard any care about crumbs getting in the bed, but I stayed there, under the covers, for almost an hour.

And you know what?

It was awesome!

Now we are headed to one of the best things about being in town with family: celebrations! In about 30 minutes we will be heading out to the MooFish house for birthday dinner for my nephews.  It will be a long and arduous trek across the street to her house (have I mentioned she lives across the street?) so I needed that one hour "power rest."

I can think of nothing better than ending this great (and busy!) week with some good celebratin'. 

I hope y'all have a great Saturday evening!

La Vida Dulce!
