Aahhh, the Femmes....

Brings back good memories. Thanks, A, for turning me on to the Femmes. They so rock. Not my first pick for the video, but my selection was extremely limited, but this one'll do. What was that, like 7 years ago we saw them in concert? I remember I was preggers, but I don't remember if it was with Mara or McKenna. Funny how I remember things around that time whether I was pg with one of them. I mean, I was, almost pg for 3 years in a row! lol Anyway, I thought it was time to change the music on here.

No more freakin' sippy cups around here! I'm getting rid of them. I'm sick and tired of looking all over creation for them, only to find them with curdled milk in them or going to the basement and finding 5-6 of them at a time. No more fighting over who gets which one. No more getting up in the middle of the night to get them more water. I'm done with them. You'd have thought that we were taking away a prized possession from them the way McKenna and Micah were ballin' and squallin' and carryin' on last night.

Got this as an email. It hurts how close to home this actually hits! Thanks, Ann, as if turning 30 last year wasn't bad enough! ;)


1. Your houseplants are alive, and you can't smoke any of them.
2. Having sex in a twin bed is out of the question.
3. You keep more food than beer in the fridge.
4. 6:00 AM is when you get up, not when you go to bed.
5. You hear your favorite song in an elevator.
6. You watch the Weather Channel.
7. Your friends marry and divorce instead of "hook up" and "break up."
8. You go from 130 days of vacation time to 14.
9. Jeans and a sweater no longer qualify as "dressed up."
10. You're the one calling the police because those %&@# kids next doorwon't turn down the stereo.
11. Older relatives feel comfortable telling sex jokes around you.
12. You don't know what time Taco Bell closes anymore.
13. Your car insurance goes down and your car payments go up.
14. You feed your dog Science Diet instead of McDonald's leftovers.
15. Sleeping on the couch makes your back hurt.
16. You take naps.
17. Dinner and a movie is the whole date instead of the beginning ofone.
18. Eating a basket of chicken wings at 3 AM would severely upset,rather than settle, your stomach.
19. You go to the drug store for ibuprofen and antacid, not condoms and pregnancy tests.
20. A $4.00 bottle of wine is no longer "pretty good stuff."
21. You actually eat breakfast food at breakfast time.
22. "I just can't drink the way I used to" replaces "I'm never going todrink that much again." 23. 90% of the time you spend in front of a computer is for real work.
24. You drink at home to save money before going to a bar.
25. When you find out your friend is pregnant you congratulate them instead of asking "Oh S*$# what the hell happened?"
This is added just for Shannon: Spending $300 on a ladder is considered an investment!

Oh, and Steve informed me last night he finally remembered his password and login and stuff for his blog. I'll let you know when he updates it. Or, just go check it out for yourself and tell him to get his a$$ moving.

rofl at the ladder addition- so true! It was a rude awakening for us when we got excited for new things such as a new W&D or lawn mower!

I must have seen them on the same tour. At first I thought, seven years ago, I must have been 12, but then I realized no you are getting old and that was probably right. Sad.
