Tuesday Ten

  1. I measured K. yesterday, just out of curiosity. He's grown an inch and a half since February. Three inches since the beginning of the school year. He is now 5'6". Somebody stop this kid from growing! He'll pass me up by the end of the year at this rate...
  2. I had a good little chat with Asia's little brother this morning via Messenger. He's such a great guy. 30 years old, single, cute as all get out... We get to see him when we're in Florida pre and post-cruise. Can't wait.
  3. I really like butter.
  4. Been thinking a lot about my husband the last couple days after a lively discussion about marriage with some good internet friends recently. I am so thankful for him. And for the relationship we have. I am SO blessed.
  5. So so sad for all the families who lost loved ones in Virginia. I cannot fathom the scope of what this one disturbed person did. Why take so many others with you? I just don't get it.
  6. It's free cone day at Ben and Jerry's. I think I'll pick the kids up from school and take them straight there. We can't pass up free B & J.
  7. The bad thing about making lots of $$$ on ebay? I've got to go to the post office. I'm not sure if it's worth it. I hate the post office.
  8. I know what I'll do... I'll pick a random commenter and send a little goodie box to someone... that will make it more fun, eh? Leave me a comment here and I'll pick someone on Thursday... Ready?
  9. Set?
  10. GO!

    Hi Cathy,
    I would love to be the one to get the little package but Argentina is a bit far I suppose. I´m with you on being blessed by a good husband. Your blog is always a bright spot in my day.
    Blessings, Leana

    Kendra is about to pass me up also! Yikes! She's always coming up next to me to see if she is taller! Nope not yet!

  4. Brooke5:01 PM

    Not too much longer until I see you!

    You know who I am.... I post anonymous, but I'm married to Rebecca... you know? Pick me, Pick me!

  6. Hi Cathy-
    Could you email me and explain how to sell stuff on ebay? I have a ton. Visiting you via suziebeezie land..

    Free Ben and Jerry's? How could I not know this! Oh well, with two ballet dancers in the house it is probably a good thing to not know. Tell Kyler he passed me up in the height department 5" ago.


  8. well 5'6" would pass me up, mine is 1 inch away from passing me up. I'm going to cry that day.
    How about this...I'll send you a package when yours passes you up, if you send me one when it happens to me? ;)
    Lots of other dittos...#3,4,5,... :D

  9. I forgot about the free Ben & Jerry's days!
    I need to add it to the list of things I'm forgetting lately ;0)

    On a serious note, I was very upset about the shootings in VA.
    I don't even know anyone personally involved but in a way it does involve us all. It's so hard to understand the violence and the reasons sometimes.

    And I agree about marriage.
    I've realized the past few days that despite the harder days, I am really blessed in the marriage department.

  10. If you pick me, you don't have to go to the post office!! :-)

  11. What a funny way to get comments! I always evaluate my self worth on the basis of how many comments I get. I don't get many! If I get 5, I feel like a much-loved-blogger.
    The whole marriage thing? I have no idea. No one wants to marry me. It's tragic.

  12. What a sneaky and fun way to find out who is reading your blog.
    Isn't it funny, how people love a chance to win something !
    Here's my comment so I have a chance....

  13. I've been thinking about what happened in Virginia....33 families are in such pain now. And the people who were injured ....I read that several people jumped from the second floor window of their class room. I also read that the shooter was a loner and didn't talk to people. But although we'll never know why he did it for sure, I think he was hurting so much, he wanted people to notice him. What people do when in pain I've learned is truly amazing (not always in the good sense.)

    Your Mom and I have been power laying out (is that a word?) Getting ready for Leavenworth.

    And I LOVE LOVE LOVE the post office. The people are friendly and although it annoys me the price of stamps is going up (AGAIN!!!) it is sort of cool that for 39 ¢, they'll pick up a letter at my house, transport it across the country, and deliver it to the house of a friend in Washington DC.

  14. i hate the post office too! did you know that if you ship via priority mail, you can print your postage out from ebay, and schedule your mailman to pickup the packages from your doorstep? i *heart* usps. if you haven't gotten acquainted with this feature, email me and i'll walk you through it!

  15. I refuse to be lured into your den of commenting for prizes!

  16. Hey Cathy!

    Such a fun way to get comments, huh? Were you following Ali's blog when she generated close to 2000 comments when she was giving something away? Isn't that insane?!

    I'm on the homestretch! (31 1/2 weeks and counting.....)


  17. Hey Cathy I am going to have to try this on Readerman.net. It would be cool to get a package from you as you are so creative.

    Okay here is my comment, choose me, choose me, choose me. ahh

  19. so when are we going to see that fabulous chicken footage? ;)


I love it when people talk back...
