Word verification

I love reading funny blogs, sure I read for information or to get updates on close family and friends, but besides God and family, humor is my first love.  There's nothing like leaving a silly comment and then getting down to word verification.  ScHLad! FiMerFaStErnickeN  Really?  I don't think those are words.  Shouldn't that be letter verification or character verification?  Then the machine is baffled when you got it wrong and have to try again.  Seriously, you thought I could spell vLflamBXUzC correctly?  I mean, I have enough trouble with the English language.  It reminds me of trying to understand infants when they try to communicate.  And of course, I meld the two in my mind.  100 babies in 100 rooms for 100 years trying to write the complete works of William Shakespeare.  Everything else is used as word verification.  Oh, and if you need, Professor Xavier will help.

Parental Priorities

I've been laughing to myself recently about my role and the changes it makes in my life.  It puts things in perspective and brings joy to the sacrifices of motherhood.  Here are my top ten.  Please comment and share your new priorities.

You know you're a mother if... 
  1. Your idea of a dream vacation consists of 5 minutes in the bathroom by yourself.
  2. Your idea of a dream vehicle is anything with a working DVD player and enough seats for an army.
  3. Your idea of a night on the town gets you back roughly at 9:30pm and sleeping in is up after 7am.
  4. Your idea of gourmet is anything with the main ingredient of chocolate.
  5. Your idea  of justice is making the elder sibling share so there will be peace among the ranks.
  6. Your idea of clean is anything within 5 ft of where it belongs or I can't see it with my glasses off.
  7. Your idea of entertainment is prefaced by the words, "Disney's..." or "Pixar's..."
  8. Your idea of exercise is wrestling a small crew of rebels into the aforementioned land yacht.
  9. Your idea of dressing up includes shaving your legs and putting on chapstick.
  10. Your idea of prince charming only requires brushing his teeth.

Showa Powa!

Have you noticed that every toilet in the world uses less and less water and that you now have to flush the commode six times to get it to take down a sheet of TP?  Have you also noticed, in stark contrast to that, the 15,000 shower head flood gates that put the Hoover Dam to shame?  Now don't get me wrong, conservation is always a good idea and I like to be clean, but this doesn't seem to equate!  I also giggle a little at cloth diapers in a drought area where land is not a factor.  (I'm glad it's not my call to make about diapers anymore.)  To each their own in every choice.  The irony just made me giggle so I thought you might get a kick out of it.
