Scattered thoughts

If you're a parent: Do you ever look at your kids, like when you're playing or reading or snuggling and think "I have the best kids! No one else can love their kids as much as I love mine because mine are the best!"? And then do you sometimes catch yourself thinking that and then realize it's probably a little bit obnoxious but then you know that you can't help it because it's true and your kids really are the best? Because that happens to me a lot.

In other news, I am so scared to leave the house today. I have to go get Joseph from school in half an hour and I'm worried about driving. It's been snowing pretty good all day and the roads are just a mess. I hate driving in snow! Why do I love in the great frozen north? I think it's because I never have the strenght to leave. I spend all winter long huddled up in a ball trying to stay warm and then I spend all summer long feeling weak from blood loss at the hands of swarms of mosquitos. It's hard to plan an escape when you have to work so hard at basic survival.

In yet other news, I just have to say this: I am not the best speller in the world. My grammer is not perfect. Having said that, if I read something that someone wrote and they mix up "you're" and "your" I knock my estiamte of their IQ down by 25 points even if I know nothing else about them. If I see someone use "LOL" I knock it down by 30.

Elle has started this thing now where if we say no to her she looks distressed and says "How come?" It's so cute that I want to say no to her all the time just to hear it. That's probably a little cruel.

That's all.

I actually saw someone use "lawl" the other day, as in "I lawled when..." I guess it's come full circle and then back again, because now I'm hearing people in real life, audible discussions using "OhEmGee!" or saying "L-O-L." Weird!

Southern Illinois has pretty mild winters, and that's good, but since my second home is now going to be up North, I hate that. I haven't had to put up with northern winters since 2001 and I'm going back to it kicking and screaming. What can I say? I likes me warm weather.

I think you love in the great north because your love is so hot and you need to cool down after ;)
