1 - This song is a favorite around the Engstrom house. It's not totally Catholic theology, but there's a few bits I really like. Like the line, "Go and tell that long tongued liar, tell him that God's gonna cut him down." It's a more poetic way of saying one of my expressions: Go to Hell, satan.
2 - Some of you may have noticed that Ignitum Today was been down for a couple of weeks. Thanks to the efforts of Tito Edwards, the Wizard behind the curtain if you will, IT is finally up and running. There's still a few tweaks to work out but the site is up and running again. Here's an old post of mine featuring some of our favorite songs from the fall of 2011.
3 - In the span of two days I had WOMEN say stupid, stupid things to me. First, at a family reunion for Travis' family where he doesn't even know 4/5 of the people, there were a group of 50 and 60 year olds chatting.
"When are you due?" they pleasantly asked.
"Oh! We thought we'd have to deliver that baby today!" hahahaha, chortle, chortle, wink and slap your knee.
Then, I was at the midwife's office, walking from the bathroom to a chair in the waiting room. A lady, who I would like to point out was ignoring her children and talking on the phone, (that was probably mean) called out to me, "You pregnant with twins?"
"No." I looked pissed.
She looked sorry and said, "Oh, well I," followed by loud nervous laughter.
I dug around in my bag, ignoring her. And then my blood pressure was 138 over 60 when it should have been closer to 105 over 60.
|JF would never say or sign something so dumb.|
5 - Has anyone made these Lemon Bar Muddy Buddies? They sound great but I'm not gonna waste time and energy on another Pinterest let down.
6 - Travis and I went on a little date today. Our friend Katie gave us a date night for our Christmas present so today we cashed in our free babysitting coupon and used our gift card to watch the new Superman movie, Man of Steel. Let me tell you something, the burger I had at the Black Rabbit in downtown Peoria was *awesome*!
7 - And just a reminder to everyone to say a prayer for all those in Colorado who are threatened by or have already lost their homes because of the Black Forrest Fire. Jenny and Lisa and all my other CO friends - you are in my prayers!
Thank you, Jen, for hosting! Best wishes on your deadline!
