Maroon head

Hey Pam, remember when you turned my hair this color?????
I know that I looked ultra chic and cool............and I know that I said I wanted something different........but thanks for fixing it!

Top ten reason how this could have happened:
1- I was abducted by aliens and they have ran tests on me.......
2- That was not a Advil liquid gel that I took last night.........
3- Can eating a pomegranate turn your hair maroon..........
4- Its something in the South Jordan water.............
5- My mom tricked me into eating elk meat a few weeks ago........
6- I had to drive carpool this afternoon.......
7- The kids I watch have been drugging me to get more cookies.......
8- I really had to go pee the whole time. I should have went before we started.......
9- It's my electric personality..........
10- Pam wanted me to match my new living room decor.......

Almost OLD!

Happy Birthday to the love of my life! You are 39 today. Looks like you have one good year until you are officially OLD! Ten reason why I love you:

1- Your hair is never messy! (your eyebrows are another story though)
2- You can just fall asleep when you lay down. (no fair)
3- You let me spend your paycheck every time that you get paid!
4- You cashed in your stocks so I could get a new floor.
5- You love to rub my feet or back whenever I ask.
6- You are understanding when you come home and dinner is not ready.
7- You will play me in card games and board games even though you hardly ever win.
8- You don't mind stepping around a playpen in our bedroom every morning.
(even though we don't have a baby!)

9-You always back the wave runners into the lake. (first time, every time!)
10- You asked me to marry you!

New Floors!

Yah! We finally got our new floors. I really do not know what I was thinking 8 years ago when we put in WHITE carpet. I knew darn good and well that I was having daycare here. But I knew that I could keep the white carpet clean with 20 different people running around on it everyday! Like a lot of my swell ideas, it did not work out so well. The white carpet was borderline embarrassing everyday. I did have a good excuse as to why it was gross.

Well, Don't the new ones looks so much better?? We put the floor in the living room, dining room and down both halls.

I also needed new furniture. I think that is a requirement: New floor = New furniture right? The booger infest green ones were in need of a new home.

Here is a picture of our new rug. I love it and hate it at the same time. Take your shoes off and walk on it and you are in heaven. But, this sucker sheds, worse than Buddy. At the rate I am picking red fuzzies off the floor, this thing should be bald by Thanksgiving.

Here is a close up of the floor. It is called Tobacco Road. It is so pretty. (I hope that it is not against my religion to have a product with the word tobacco in my home. Just don't tell my Bishop, OK.) Hey, just one more quick thanks to my brother Charlie for laying it for me. Hopefully he will come back soon and finish the mouldings.

I am slowly getting used to the idea of the kids giving it "character". Do you know how hard it is to keep the 2 year old boys from racing trucks all over it? It is a losing battle. The cars just go so fast and far! To much of a temptation for them. They are also used to dragging toys all over my house. They just do understand why I want the toys in the toy room!
