September 30th

My new poem:

Roll me in butter.
Dip me in lard.
Fry me up-
I'm big as a barge!

Pretty  much greatest day of my life today: I went to Five Guys, twice.  Umm...and then my husband bought a peach milkshake, from Herfy's, to split.

My body is hating me right now, but a "little cheeseburger, all the way" is SOOO good.

I know days like today are few and far between, but gosh did I enjoy it-


  • Wonder Boy slept from 9:30 to 9:00, only getting up to eat twice.
  • I was in bed by 10 last night.  Wow.
  • Mimi was up at 6:30, but I let her crawl in bed with me and she slept till 8...an hour later than normal!
  • I slept in till 9.  When was the last time that happened?
  • Breakfast for everybody, and by 10 we were at Grandma's for Ernie's weekly playdate (joint, with Ming Wai.)
  • Went thrifting with Aunt LoLo, Mimi, Wonder Boy, and Siu Jeun.  It was a bit hairy at times, but I found two sprouting jars, four gasket-lid mason jars for storing grains and pickles in, and a fabulous new dress.  Score!
  • Talked Aunt LoLo into lunch at Five Guys.  WITH three small children.  Memorable, but delicious....
  • Naps at Aunt LoLo's house (although Mims never did fall asleep,) then dropped Mimi off to join the big girls with Grandma, and took Wonder Boy to Costco.
  • Costco with one happy-to-be-out-and-about baby is a dream.  He's my easiest baby yet.  No one else believes me, because if he's not with me, he's most likely crying.  But he loves his mama, and we have fun on our adventures!
  • Home for another nap for baby, and got the kitchen cleaned up.
  • Played with musical instruments with Wonder Boy till Daddy got home, and we hit the town for our date night.  I don't know how I got so blessed- we've had a weekly date night almost every week since Ernie turned one.  
  • Back to the thrift store.....*blush* to pick up gaskets for my jars.  I didn't see them on the shelf, but Aunt LoLo asked me about them as we were driving away.
  • Since we were in the area...yeah, let's hit Five Guys again!  Wonder Daddy was feeling left out, you see.  Had to take one for the team.  (Shall I take this moment to announce that I've lost 7 pounds in the last two months?  I promise I'm not a pig all the time :)  
This weekend is another General Conference for our church- it will be broadcast from Salt Lake City, Utah, to all over the world.  Amazing.  Every Latter-day Saint church building will receive it via satellite broadcast, and it will be on the internet too.  When I was little, we had to watch it at church....all 10 hours.  I'm pretty sure we didn't go to all those sessions!  There will be two general sessions on Saturday and two on Sunday, with a special session for the men Saturday night.  (The women's special session was last weekend, and the special session for the teen girls aka "Young Women" was before that.  The "Young Men" are lumped in with the men's broadcast Saturday night.)  I am SO excited.  

I know last time, I kind of "live blogged" my notes from conference, but I don't think I will this time.  I thought this would be a good place to store my notes, but I found out after the fact that someone on my friends list (I still don't know who) in Facebook marked my blog posts I shared there as "offensive", and this blog was blocked from being shared on Facebook.  I have an old friend who works at Facebook, he got me unblocked, but.... ouch.

What I Did Today said...

Never been to Five Guys. But a burger sounds good right now. Sorry someone was offended by your posts on your faith. That just seems so weird to me. I've seen people share some things I didn't like on FB, but I never did anything about it. I figure if they're not my friend I'll just unfriend them and not worry about it anymore. :)
Date nights are awesome. We need to do better in that area.
And I just LOVE being able to go out and do errands with just one kid. Doesn't happen very often.
Sounds like you had a really great day!
