Things I Just Don't Understand and Various Tangents

My kids love Raisin Bran. Actually, so do I. It's delicious. However, I am forced to pick out the raisins as they eat their cereal. Yes, I have tried to buy the Bran know, without the raisins? And they won't touch the stuff and it sits in my cupboard for months.

You know what else sits in my cupboards for months? Pringles Baked Wheat STIX. I saw those the other day and was wondering when I bought them. I'm pretty sure it was right after I moved to Boise when Austin was 3 MONTHS OLD. They expired in June of 2008, so that pretty much confirmed my theory.

I think they've been discontinued because I looked for them on Amazon and you can buy a pack of 6 for about $40. That's over $6 for a box. Apparently Pringles are a good investment. And what I mean by "good investment" is "better than that house we bought" good. You know what I wish I invested in? Cinnamon Wheat Thins. And Microsoft....when I was 4.

One more thing I don't understand. Why do people have Kitchenaids? They're at least $100. And I'm pretty sure those hand mixers only cost $3 and you get a lifetime supply of them at your wedding. Yes you may have to stand in one place for 2 minutes while you mix something up, but that is certainly worth $97.

You know what else is worth $97? A lifetime supply of wasted raisins from my kid's cereal so that they'll actually eat their breakfast.

P.S. The Pringles went back in my cupboard.

Google vs. Bing

I've seen the commercials declaring that Bing is better. But I'm a google girl, intensely loyal even if something better comes along <--- like that would ever happen. But feeling strangely open-minded today (must be all the codeine) I decided to test the two search engines. I went to Bing and typed in "Why can't I". It found this for me:

Why can't I lose weight?

Boring. We all know why I can't lose weight. It's those dang Dove truffle chocolates hidden in my cupboard and my inability to breath at the moment.

So then I went to google and typed in the same phrase. It came up with:

Why can't I own a Canadian?

Excellent question google! Why can't I own a Canadian? You clearly win.

Google - 1 Bing - 0

Our Weekend

Rust spent the weekend driving 40+ hours to go pick up his hang glider. He's in love. It would not have been that long of a trip, but he forgot to turn south at one point and ended up in the wrong state.

I spent the weekend laying lethargically on my death bed. I was diagnosed with pneumonia today.

The kids? I have no idea what they did all weekend. But I'm pretty sure I have goldfish and Nick Jr to thank for their survival.

Why You Shouldn't Sign a Lease in the Middle of Winter

Because when the snow melts, you might find out that your lawn is actually a stretch of gravel. Which not only resembles kitty litter, but must be owing to the fact that there is about 5 years of cat crap buried two inches under the rocks.

There is only one thing worse than home ownership and that's renting...worst case scenario? Owning a home and still having to rent!

Ashlyn <--- I totally spelled that one correctly

Today Ashlyn asked me why my music was so wicked.

Yesterday she told me that she wants to "live someplace warm where I'll never ever be cold ever again."

We're working on it.

For Sale

Either I have to live there, or you have to buy it. We'd all much be happier if you'd just buy it. TIA!

P.S. The permanent marker totally came off.
