Night before last, I had a bad migraine and several hours of Braxton-Hicks contractions. They were really painful, but worst of all, they just exhausted me.

After downing about 60 ounces of water in a short period of time, they finally subsided and I was able to get to sleep ... but I had to get up to go to the bathroom SEVEN times overnight ... I was up more than once an hour to pee.


Anyway, that's why there was no post yesterday. Boo hoo. Pity party over.

So today, TODAY, I'm enormously thankful it's Friday. I plan to scrapbook with friends tonight for several hours after work, and tomorrow morning we're taking the boys to a nearby hotel for a day in its wonderful pool and an overnight stay to celebrate the first couple of weeks of school. WE'RE STILL ALIVE! Let's celebrate!

I didn't want to go two days without a post (because what would you do? how would you cope? who's full of herself?), so today I'm going to share with you a few things I loved this week. Enjoy, and have a wonderful weekend!

This absolutely reminds me of the way Nicholas would answer this question:

This is so ME (and my sister) it's ridiculous:

I don't even have words for this. Actually, I will admit that when I first read the sign, I was like, "What's the fail?" And then I saw them:

And finally, I once had a situation similar to this one in college:

The only difference was, I'd just made sweet tea on the stove, so it was piping hot. I took the pot off the burner and poured the tea straight into a clear plastic drink container. (I will never forget it; it had strawberries printed on it.) And right before my very eyes, the entire container started to melt.

It started running down the counter, along with all the tea. And it STANK to high heaven. MY WORD it smelled terrible.

To this day, when I make tea, I fill the plastic pitcher halfway with ice cubes and a little cold water. Then when I pour the practically-boiling tea in it, I know it won't MELT THE PITCHER.

I'm not famous for my knowledge of physics, Internet, but I DO learn from my mistakes. Most of the time.

The first two were so funny I laughed out loud. My children think I'm nuts. My sense of humor is also just like that. I get in so much trouble because of the things that I find funny.

I laughed at you saying "who's full of herself?" HA!! You know you are like a celebrity in the blog world, well at least in my mind. I started reading you through my friend Beth's blog, now I've got my friends reading you, so yes, we do need your updates!! :-)

I'm so glad that I found your blog once upon a time. You keep me smiling when I need a boost. You made a spot on my blog yesterday. No, not like a ink spot, a grass stain spot!

Love this, especially the sense of humor and advice to Lincoln! My roommate in college once left the top to a rubbermaid cake carrier on the back eye of the stove and then turned the oven on. It just so happened that the oven vented out of that burner and it started pouring blue smoke all into our apartment. It was awful!

I just found you...and oh my, you are very funny. :) I think I'll be sticking around.
