EDIT: Oh, and Nixie, I forgot to say that the connecting link among most of us is that we attended Cedarville College/University at some point. It’s a tiny little school in the middle of absolutely nowhere. It gained “University” status (whatever that means) sometime after lendy_p and I graduated. 🙂 That’s how I “know” billbrown. He’s the President, and a fine one at that. END EDIT, and g’day, mate!
The cool thing about being highly susceptible to mood swings is that if you wait just a bit, your bad mood will generally give way to a good mood…or something. I was in a rotten mood earlier and thought about blogging, but I decided to spare you and me both by waiting until it passed.
So, hello, here I sit in a better mood. Even though my face feels like demons of dryness have invested my every pore. Actually, I don’t think I even have pores anymore. I am MISERABLE. They tell me that if I can hang in there for another few days, my face will be all cleared up and voila! Dryness be gone! I am this close to dunking my entire head in a tub full of aloe vera gel. Have you ever kept a mud mask on too long and thought your face would crack? I feel like I’ve had a thin layer of dried-up mud on my face and neck for 9 days straight. But enough about me.

Don’t you just love killing a fly on the first attempt–in one fell swoop–as opposed to chasing it around the entire house with a flyswatter for the better part of a morning?
Don’t you hate it when you’re trying to sternly discipline one of your children, and the wrong words come out of your mouth and completely ruin the solemn moment? Last night, I told Livi, “Young lady, don’t you look at me with that tone of…look.” We both busted up laughing.
Nixie really really wants to know how I know all you guys. She doesn’t realize how boring the story is, because I actually don’t know anybody at all. You are all friends I’ve stolen from other people. 🙂
Here’s how it all started…it was either the end of December 05 or the beginning of January 06. Gabe had been hounding me to start blogging. Forget it, I said. Finally caved. Started blogging right before Nina was born. Found out my sister (YoYoYoder) also had a blog. From her blog, I went to adamslady‘s. She and YoYo went to high school together in our small town. I believe I found faithchick on adamslady’s site. The two of them went to college together and on a trip to Africa. I died laughing when I read faithchick’s blog, because her site was teal and purple and she commented that it reminded her of a Charlotte Hornet’s Starter jacket from the 90’s–or something to that effect. I had one of those (a sweatshirt actually) when I was in high school and thought I was pretty cool. My brother painted his room teal and purple–even the original wood floors in our 100+ year old house! They are still teal to this day–sick!
Anyway, from faithchick’s site, I believe I found bethelaine and kmhunsberger and ch1pch0p and mybluheaven and lendy_p I am sick of typing links, so the rest won’t have any… marketer319, rachmckinney, et. al are also stolen friends.
hcole86 found Gabe’s blog last year sometime and commented about our website, started checking out my blog and brought her friend nixter77 along. These lovely gals hail from Australia. (nixie is actually from England)
SuperScuzzy is my sister’s sister-in-law, as are scottnjes and cherithpeters and maximus20.
kkakwright went to high school with Gabe and we became friends when we worked at a church camp together. jbnygaard is friends with kkak. mrsnorthern8605 is married to a friend of Gabe’s. Oh, and angntug is my sister-in-law. And I am too tired to explain any more. Ava has asked me about 9 times now to read a book to her.
Have an awesome weekend!
