In our home, we generally have the windows open all the time. Unless the A/C or the heat is on, we LOVE the fresh air!

I am generally warm - all the time.

Last night was the first time in a LONG time that I actually used covers.


We were so cozy snuggled in the covers with the windows wide open. It was HEAVEN and the best nights sleep I have had in a long time!!

I don’t like noise…never have.

Recently I have noticed that car manufacturers INSIST on making noise with the car locking systems.

There are some cars that, no matter what you do, will make the beep/squeak sound when you lock your door with the automatic locker thing.

Marks car for instance, when you pop the trunk or lock the car gives you the SQUEAK that sounds like a monkey getting castra*ted. Not that I have ever heard that, but that is what I would think it would sound like.

My car, on the other hand, will just flash the lights if any door is open and you lock the doors.

I have noticed (AND HEARD) many of our neighbours cars automatically beep/squeak when they lock them. Some of them like to lock their cars at 3:00am.

It is incredibly irritating.

I would love it if ALL car manufacturers changed their car locking system so that the lights would flash when you locked the car. That way you could SEE that it is locked and that the rest of the neighbourhood wouldn’t have to HEAR that your car is locked.

That is my vent of the day.

For those of you who use Sitemeter on their blogs, will notice that they have changed their format this weekend.

I have been playing with it and I have come to the conclusion that I don't like it.

I am sure that after I use it and get used to it, I will 'appreciate' the changes and "UPGRADES" that they have done, but at this point in time - I DON'T LIKE IT!!!

Of course, all this liking and disliking requires me to actually CHECK my sitemeter - which I only do about once a month - IF I think about it!

If you are unable to LIFT your feet when you walk - instead of dragging your shoes on the floor - perhaps it is time to get LIGHTER shoes!!

This is a pet peeve of mine - just thought I would share.

There are MANY more - but that is what came to mind today.

I know I am GRASPING to post stuff with my September resolution...LOL!!

Happy Birthday Rhonda

Today is Rhonda's birthday - head over to her blog and wish her a good day.

Image courtesy of D&D. Thanks!!

One of these days I am really going to learn how to do that stuff instead of 'borrowing' everyone elses images...

People are rude.

People are stupid.

People are oblivious.

21 months down

WOW!! This month has just flown by and we are now been logged in for 21 months!

If only all the months could go by this quickly...

In just a few short weeks, we will be seeing our LID partners in PERSON!

The CC*AA has now matched families into February...

Our China Adoption Forecast states we should receive our referral about December 2012..

Recently it was suggested in the comments by Nicole that I talk about my feet as a topic for a post. Now I am not opposed to that, however, it got me thinking and I thought I would talk about EARS.

Earlobes in particular...

Now Mark's earlobes 'dangle'. They are NOT attached to the side of his face.

My earlobes, on the other hand, are connected to my face.

I have no idea which is more common and which is not.

Are you lobes connected to your face or not??

September is like the start of a new year.

It IS the start of the new school year and I am going to make it the start of a new blogger chick!!

I am going to TRY to blog 'stuff'. I am going to make a REAL effort to get this blog going again.

We will start slow...at least one post a week - opposed to the once a month post that I had been doing.

We will go from there. I even have some ideas in my head about what I am going to post about.

Stay tuned - I can't promise excitement, but I can promise posts!! LOL!!
