This I know

I know it's finally cool in my house because my mother came out and helped my husband put in our air conditioner. (Go Mom!)

I know that I have hummed "Go Go Go Joseph" from my amazing new, wonderfully awesome Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat soundtrack all day. And it's not a bad thing.

I know that my kids are dang cute.

I know my right foot hurts and I'm not sure why.

I know that I cannot wait for my dishwasher to come to its new home tomorrow.

I know I'm tired of washing dishes by hand and eating off of styrofoam plates.

I know that I don't like it when my husband lets my kids watch Cops.

I know he doesn't care that I don't like it and lets them anyway.

I know that summer is entirely overrated.

I know that I'm very, very tired right now and I'm not sure why.

I know that I'm not pregnant. Or at least I'm pretty sure.

I know that I'd like to be. At least I think I would...wouldn't I? Yeah, I think I would...Yeah.

I know that I miss Cousin Stacey.

I know that my kids are really getting a lot out of VBS this week.

I know that my computer chair really isn't all that comfortable.

I know that today my complexion resembles that of a hormonal 14 year old.

I know that my husband is sleeping in this morning and I didn't get that luxury. It's my vacation, too, dangit.

I know that I am stronger than I let on.

I know that sometimes I cry for reasons unbeknownst to me. Or anyone else. Sometimes it just feels right to cry.

I know that I'd like to perform on stage someday.

I know the way to San Jose. Actually, I don't, but it made me giggle to type it.

I know that I need to read more.

I know that I need to write more.

I know that someday, in addition to achieving infamy by performing on stage, I would like to also be famous for writing a good book.

I know what that book is going to be about, too. I just have to write it.

I know that I have one year left until my baby girl goes to school full time.

I know that when that year is gone I have to figure out what I'm going to do regarding what I want to be when I grow up.

I know that I'd like for that to be writing that good book.

I know how to say the alphabet backwards.

I know how to speak Pig Latin.

I know how to clog. (Dance. Not toilets.)

I know that I'm more diva than redneck.

I know that I wouldn't have as much redneck in me had I not married the man I did.

I know that being married isn't easy.

I know that there have been a lot of times I've wanted to leave.

I know that there will be many more times like that.

I know that I'm a horrible housekeeper.

I know that I'll never be as good a cook as my mother.

I know I'm going to heaven.

I know that I know a lot more than I give myself credit for these days.

I know this is enough and that y'all have got to be bored with reading it by now.

Loved your posts today. Especially the "If I were a teacher...I'd be on Prozac."

My other favorite: you know how to clog.

I laughed out loud. I missed reading your
blog while you were gone to Branson, the Redneck Mecca. Glad you're back.

Hillbilly Mom, I am so glad you missed me! And I'm glad I made you laugh today. Thanks for stopping in!

But I really DO know how to clog! I started when I was 17. Sis and I are planning on starting lessons up again this summer as part of our grand scheme to lose weight. I know there is a lot more of me to jiggle and bounce around now, though...that might add a new dynamic to it all. :-)

Oh How Things Have Changed

Growing up, we always went to Nana's on the 4th of July. Always. There was no option, no variance, it was always to Nan's for the no...
