so my sister brought up a good point in her comment on my last blog: that about me locking myself out ofof the house not too long ago. she's right - i've locked myself out NUMEROUS times in the past year or two. it's rather humiliating, but true - i've probably locked myself (and usually the kids, too!) out of either my car or my house at least a 1/2 dozen times in the past couple years. hmmmmm, what has changed in my life in the past 2 years. exactly - KIDS. i once heard someone comment that she'd lost brain cells with each of her kids. back then i didn't have kids and so i just laughed it off. but now. . .
i have to agree. i've never felt so spacey in my life. old-age ain't lookin' so good for me - neither is having more kids! anyways, enough about me getting stupider. . .
so i just finished watching survivor and i'm so happy it's back on! i really love the show. it's the ONLY show that ben and i watch. it's too bad that ben had to go out on elder quorum visits, but i'll fill him in. so it's kind of early but i'm cheering for the asian team. i just like them - even cao boi ("cowboy"). maybe i'll try that headache thing on my husband sometime - ha! i find the divison of tribes racially interesting. i don't think there is a single thing wrong with it. what i found most interesting in the first episode is stereotypes are stereotypes for a reason. but even more interesting is that the white group wasn't stereotyping about the black group or the asian group - each group was stereotyping about themselves. am i making sense (remember the loss of brain cells that have occured)? i just don't think people should get upset over most of the stereotypes that are out there. because, for the most part, they are a pretty accurate representation. anyways, go asians!
so i'll be gone from the blogging/internet world for awhile. we leave tomorrow for yellowstone. we're staying at my folk's house on friday and then head up to yellowstone and will stay there for a week. ben's parents will meet us there. i'm soooooooo excited. it's going to an awesome vacation! we'll be out in the "great outdoors" and it's suppose to be perfect-emily weather -- upper 50s for the high and upper 30s for the low. LOVE IT.
so to all my million adoring fans, you'll have to wait a week or so until i get back from yellowstone - unless, of course, i lose the keys in yellowstone and a buffalo eats them. then you might not hear from me for a little longer. . .
