Yes, we did have a snow storm and lo and behold the next day you wake up and it is nearly gone. Only Duluth, Minnesota folks, only. Honestly, when they say we have four seasons in one day they are not kidding. Because that is exactly what has been happening around here. Seventy degree weather with little birdies singing then BAM, it is 32 degrees and blowing snow up your nose when you walk across the parking lot.
The gum habit is almost but all cured. You know what did it for me? I saw an old lady the other day when I was shopping at Target bend over and pick up a mascara that she dropped. Only she picked up something else too, the gum that dropped out of her mouth. I stood there in complete shock. Thinking to myself, "No. You are NOT actually going to stick that back in your mouth are you?!!!" Yep, she did. And smacked away quite happily with the biggest grin on her face. So that did me in. I hear applause. Well, mostly coming from my own poor worn out jaw. When you can't open your mouth in the morning because it is so stiff from chewing all day you know you have a problem. Let's not make TMJ a reality.... if I can help it anyway. Oh well. Bye, bye poor dear friend. Hey, another reason to look forward to Heaven. Endless packs of Stride gum just waiting for me by the mountain full. Yep, I know. I can see you all smiling now. Happy for me? I am. Super happy. =)
Ashley, the youngest of the Little Women brood has become quite enthralled with Evil Knevel reruns on You Tube. Since she has been taking this Pop Culture class for her senior year she has been filling me in on all the hilarious happenings of the sixties, seventies and eighties. But the best? So the other day, I hear this out of control laughter. Like the kind of laughter that sounds absolutely painful. So I run into her room to find her completely doubled over in laughter as she watches a You Tube clip of Tiny Tim playing his ukulele, singing Tiptoe Through the Tulips on the Dick Martin Show. She watches that nearly every day now. Please, if you want a goodhearted laugh, you HAVE to watch that.
Laura has FINALLY made it through her regional boards for the Dental Hygeine program. Meaning, that in a little more than a week my mom will have two girls in the house who are college graduates. Job hunting is the next course of action which will be pretty intersting because Laura has never had an interview for anything. So my job as the big sister? Going through everything I can possibly think an interview committee might ask her. I have had some very hair raising interviews in my young life. Three that will change the shape of history for me. Lets just say that they have never consisted of less then ten people except for the last one I just had. That was five people. But seriously. Has anyone ever had that experience before? If not then well, maybe I am just special. =)
Okay, that is enough for me. I have spilled all my beans.... =)
