Where do they go?

You know how people release balloons? I've never found one, with or without a message on it. 

Have you ever found one?

This guy should get an award

Last night I was watching the local ABC news. Of course there was a story on air pollution. Not only is it unhealthy, I also think it's embarrassing that Utah has so many cities in the top 5 worst air category.

But don't despair.

The government is paying someone to drive around and look for air polluters. He gives tickets to people who are using their fireplaces on red burn days.

He drives around!

Hey government, here's and idea that isn't counter productive: a call in hot line. No driving required.

Hubba, hubba

We went to see the Curious case of Benjamin Button the other night.

It's a good thing they kept making Brad Pitt hotter and hotter as the movie went on, otherwise, I couldn't have endured the length of the movie.

I guess I'll just keep on goin'

In an effort to get the TV turned off, I bought the chic-a-dees puzzles. Shortly after starting, Roxy commented that it is nice to spend quality time as a family. Of course, now that my blog is dedicated to Roxy quotes I considered blogging that, and ultimately deemed it cute- but not enough on it's own.

Ben was progressing on his puzzle a bit faster than Roxy, and commented to that effect.

Now comes the part worthly of the blog....

"Ben stop showboating!"

While we're at it...

here's a couple more funny things Roxy has said lately.

Blaine is getting braces next week. (His desire to be like me is overwhelming) I was joking with the kids and said "what if, when Dad and I kiss, our braces get stuck together?"

Roxy immediately replied with a laugh, "You guys will have to decide whose work you'll go to. Ha ha ha."

Last night Blaine and I went out on a date, when we got back Roxy was in bed, but awake. So I invited her into my room to talk and snuggle. I asked her if there was anything special about the babysitter she wanted to tell me about. I was totally fishing for dirt to see if she is a good sitter; turns out she is. Although, I was nervous for a fraction of a second when Roxy said there was something she wanted to tell me about her.

"Kind of a lot, she says 'wow' about things that aren't that impressive."

People, she's FIVE.

Maybe this totally makes me a typical "mommy blogger", but still, I love the funny things she says.

Is it that bad?

Yesterday, I overheard Roxy playing with her Polly pocket dolls, it was the wedding of the century....

"Do you take this man to be your awful wedded husband?"

Back away from the car, with your hands where I can see them

Nothing abnormal here...
but wait, look a little closer....

In case you can't read that, it says "prop rod".
Now, I'm just sayin', but if you need instructions for the prop rod, what can you possibly expect to accomplish once the hood is opened?

Do you know how to use a wicket?

This is Melissa, she is likes the taste of snow. She thinks it tastes like pollution.

We went to Sundance yesterday and the ticket girl was asking everyone if they knew how to use a wicket. Who knew that was what they are called?

Five things I learned yesterday:
1. The word wicket.
2. Melissa likes smog.
3. When the signs says, 'chains or 4 wheel drive', they mean it.
4. I'm old. It's been 33 years since I was born, but I'm pretty sure if I did one of those actual age tests, I'd come out about 65. I seriously should have gotten a senior discount ticket.
5. I'm really, really out of shape. Turns out, it's important to be able to reach your feet when trying to undo your bindings.

One thing I already knew, but was reminded of yesterday:
1. Melissa is one of the funnest friends I have. Thanks for the good time Grandma Nita.

Here I am

So I've decided to be back. I was just checking if any of you were still around with that last post and was surprised to see you are. I guess google reader is probably my new best friend.

I've had a nice time while I was away. Since my blogcation post we've had Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years. Holy smokes, am I ever a cheater for not blogging all that comes with the holidays. I'm not even going to fill in the details with all the cheer I've been having. But don't despair, it's not due to lack of love, just laziness.

One of the main reasons I took a break from blogging is I was beginning to let it bog me down.

Blog bog.

I'm like some sort of massive internal pressure cooker machine and convinced myself the purpose of my blog is to entertain other people. Well, I'm just not that funny, pretty funny, but not that funny, so I cracked under the pressure I put myself under. It was time for a DTR between myself and my blog.

Now that I understand our relationship, I'm willing to continue with it. I will write what I want, when I want, and I hope to entertain you along the way occasionally. But I don't care if I don't. *By the way, even though I assume no responsibility to entertain those who read my blog, I still expect you to entertain me with yours.

Heck is for people that don't believe in gosh
