This week I have realized.....
-Brandon is hilarious! The other day we were in the car and Brandon informed us that he isn't getting married (something he has said many times) and he is not going on a mission. The reason for this? He wants an X- BOX and since I won't get him one he is going to use his own money and get one. Getting married and missions take too much money so he isn't having anything to do with those things. I work up this long "gospel principles" talk and began with "Well, Brandon, the prophet has asked all boys to serve a mission.......etc......but you have your agency and can make your own choice but..... (I intended to talk about blessings etc) but didn't get that far because I hear Brandon suddenly YELL
"I don't have agency! I don't even have an agent! I DON'T EVEN HAVE A LAWYER!!!"
Hmm.....Does he think he NEEDS a lawyer? Makes me wonder what he has been watching on TV!
-taking two PM's is not a good idea...even if the bottle says the appropriate dosage is two pills! I was out like a light on Saturday night but apparently kept calling Tyler on his cell phone, asking what he was doing! He was downstairs in his bed! He finally asked what was wrong with me! I spent all day Sunday groggy and church...that was fun. I am waiting for that call.....
"Sister Diaz, do you having a drinking problem?"
-the advertised price is never REALLY the price. If you have enough time and are willing to haggle, you can get a better rate. I am not very good at this but I have friends that are good at it.....very valuable!
-I love to read but really hate it when I start a book and really don't care for it but think I HAVE to finish it! My latest....not my favorite, would not recommend book......."My Sister's Keeper" The books was OK but slow. I did not like the occasional swearing. It did not add a thing to the story. I know the movie could not have used the same word and gotten a PG 13 rating. I am now trying to decide if I even want to see the movie. Hmmmmm?
So....do you have any recommendations for a good read?
-There is a time and a season for all things right? So why is it that the grass is always greener on the other side? When my kids were little, and I was stuck at home all the time.....Dave working two jobs.....having only one car......I just KNEW things would be much easier when the kids were older. All I wanted was to get out of the house and have some adult conversation. Now I would give anything to just stay home and clean the house on a regular basis and cook a nice dinner every night (something I used to do all the time), and hang out with my kids. I miss the kids being little and crawling into bed with me and I miss the biggest problem they faced was an owie on their knee or spilling all over their clothes just as we are walking out the door for church. Oh boy.....I wish I knew then what I know now! I am dreading the next season of life..... being home alone. I just can't imagine them being gone. Brandon always told me he would buy the house next door so he could always live by me but now he has decided that Alyssa is cooler and is planning on ditching me to live by her!
-John Bytheway is awesome! I envy those that can bring the scriptures and gospel principles alive. If you have not listened to "Righteous Warriors: Lessons from the War Chapters in the Book of Mormon" I highly recommend it!
