That’s right…I think Sarah officially killed this thing. It was all going along nicely. Then she had to go ahead and suggest that I write a post for this thing. I don’t really know what people want to know about. Honestly. Sarah is with the girls all day long so she gets all the funny stories and fun times. I sit at work all day behind a computer trying to think of ways to waste 8 hours of daylight each and every day. So, I think this thing might be dead if something is not done about this. Therefore, I have created a fun little way for everyone to voice their opinions on the matter. Please take a brief moment to answer the poll question located in this post (possibly the last if something is not done) and then leave a comment about your favorite post from our blog. Sarah has written some amazing stuff and I am interested to see what your favorites are. Thanks!
As far as updates go…not much. Charli has been sick for about a week but seems to be getting better. She hasn’t woken up in the middle of the night not being able to breathe the last few nights, so that’s been a major improvement. Unfortunately, Tori and Sarah are now getting sick. That’s the cycle in our family: one of them gets sick and just when she is about to get better, the other two get sick (sometimes getting the initial culprit sick again in the process). They all seem to be okay for now…but what do I know? I’m at work all day. Seriously, you can’t take my word on this. You really should ask Sarah.
Tori has been wearing her glasses again. For those of you who don’t know, she can’t see out of one eye so she has “safety glasses” that she needs to wear to protect her good eye. They look just like regular prescription eye glasses, but they are just glass to hopefully protect her “big girl eye.” She has had quite a few close calls so we are trying to get her to wear them a lot more, especially when she is running around or playing with other kids. The last thing we would ever want to have happen is for her to lose vision in both eyes. It’s going to be hard enough on her as it is. I was thinking about it the other day: will she ever even be able to drive a car? Sad and scary to think about.
I found her glasses while I was helping Sarah prepare our Easter dinner. Sarah was making tamales and needed our crock-pot from out in the garage, so I started looking. I had no idea which box it was in, so I just started opening boxes and checking. I found Tori’s glasses, Sarah’s food scale, and a bunch of other things that turned out to be quite handy in the past few weeks. Anyway, I looked…and looked…and looked but could not find that blasted crock-pot. With the prospect of delicious tamales hanging the balance, I persevered and looked through every single box in the garage. Sure enough, I found it in the very last box buried in the middle of our mass of belongings, right under our box full of chemicals. Good thing I kept looking, the bleach in our chemicals box had been leaking, so we got that taken care of before havoc could be wreaked. And yes…Sarah did make tamales and yes…they were delicious. I love her tamales!!!
Yesterday I discovered something about Sarah I never, ever knew. Apparently she is the missing member of the Backstreet Boys. That discovery is so disturbing on so many levels. She and the girls had what was called a “dance party” yesterday that I missed out on. Obviously I am unable to give you full details as to what this dance party entailed because…well, I was at work. Anywho, later (when I was home) Sarah was listening to music and decided to start lip syncing to some of the songs that came on. Then, “Don’t Want You Back” by the Backstreet Boys came on and she transformed. She synced and danced and put on this whole production, it was amazing. During one of Sarah’s performances of “Don’t Want You Back” (yes, there were multiple performances), Tori got up and sang and danced with her, even held a pretend microphone up to her mouth for effect. It was so funny. That is definitely a side of Sarah that I have not seen before. We laughed and laughed and had such a great time. So, with that in mind, I would like to pay homage to some of our favorite syncers:
And who could ever forget:
