Terrific Tuesday

First things first:  How 'bout those Lady Vols?
If I hear the commentators mention one more time that they were knocked out of the NCAA tournament in the first round last year, I will scream.  Let it go, already!

I saw the sweetest story on the news last night:  Servicemen who are overseas are reading to their kids via dvds.  It gives them a sense of normalcy and gives them a sense of being in their children's lives when they can't physically be there.  Then...oh no...I really didn't just see this:  the little girl (who is 2 years old) with a pacifier in her mouth talks with the paci in her mouth. Given my profession, I watch in horror.  "Take the paci away" I yell to the tv. (If you've read previous  posts, you know that I am a tv yeller.)  Then I just start shaking my head.  I'm not some heartless woman; I understand that her daddy is far away, but please take it away.  When she's awake, anyway.  (See, I'm not totally heartless!)  See for yourself:

The little girl is absolutely adorable, but she won't be so cute when she gets older and has speech problems.  Or has a mouthful of orthodontic appliances.  Okay, I'll get off my soapbox now!

MS comes home from soccer practice last night, and is mad because it's cold outside.  (Not screaming and yelling mad, just irritated mad) I tried to tell him that it does this every year, but he's not buying it.  Like it's all my fault it's going to be cold for a couple of days.  Can anybody relate?

The school that I'm going to today always does the good stuff and has the excitement on the days I'm not there.  One of my friends is hooking me up today, though.  She saved me a piece of her Chocolate Chip Pie that she made for Monday.  Luckily she was stingy about who she shared it with!  Here's what it looks like:
Yuuummmm!  I won't have any ice cream to go with it, but I can't wait!  Isn't it great to have friends like that?


  1. I think we need the recipe...that looks yummy! Will your friend share?

  2. I just noticed you Roy C. Holder quote...my grandmother always said "Can't never could do nothing!" Love it!

  3. Friends who share dessert are the only kind of friends we need in this life.

  4. Man-- two posts on here have now made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside! I have ANOTHER new recipe I am going to try-- an orange pound cake. Again, I will make sure you get some! :)
