All Scrambled up!

I've slacked off on my blogging this week. As usual, there is probably a lot I could blog about but the thinking involved in putting out an interesting anecdote just proved to be too much.

It seems that all the brain cells I could be putting towards blogging have joined me in my newest addiction - Scramble!!! Scramble is a facebook application along the lines of text twist, or a computer version of Boggle (which is available on the internet) - and who doesn't know Boggle, right? Scramble is fun because you can play matches against your facebook friends and then trash talk them - well, I really only trash talk with Chrissie, my sister in law, when we're both playing at 11:30 at night. Yeah, it's that bad.

So, I've been a bit distracted as of late. I was all set to post some pictures of our garden but blogger was not letting me move them around the way I wanted and I just had to get back to my Scramble game, so I didn't get to finish it.

I also took some good pictures of the girls on the swing set that I hope to post later this week. And more thoughts on movies and books and shows. I just have to stay away from Scramble long enough to string together some intelligent thoughts.

Some random bits...

Matt and the girls made me breakfast in bed for Mother's Day. I was starting to make the bed when they came upstairs (at 9:30 - it was a beautiful thing to sleep in that long). Ella was a little disappointed that I wasn't still in bed. She told Matt "for Father's Day, just stay in bed!"! I also got a gift certificate for a massage that I am very excited about. Both girls drew me pictures/cards and Ella gave me a card with a satchel of potpourri inside that she made in preschool. It came with the required little poem that never fail to remind me that my little girl is growing up! The day before we enjoyed some time at Lakeshore Learning Center where the kids made, not one, not two, but four Mother's Day crafts! I have flower bouquets, handprints, picture frames and cards - I think I got the motherload this Mother's Day! hee hee....I warned you!

This is Ella's last week of preschool. It seems pretty early to be ending. As quickly as those 2 1/2 hours went on Tuesdays and Thursdays I think I'm going to miss them this summer. I am imagining making many play dates and park trips to keep up with my social butterflies' desire to be in constant motion!

It's so nice that Catherine knows when she's had her limit. Yesterday we weren't going to put her down for a nap so we could head out for an early dinner. But she informed us that she wanted to lay down and proceeded to take a two hour nap. That is so different from my experience with Ella that I still marvel at a child who actually wants to sleep when she's tired.

I got an eyebrow wax this week and it made me breakout in a way that I don't think I've ever experienced even as a teenager. So now I'm nervous about running because I might get a migraine AND I have to worry about breakouts after getting my brows done. Just great. I'm out of shape with a unibrow.

I'm having a hard time not looking at my words and thinking about Scramble. As I typed brow I thought it looked funny and I took the "w" away and thought, oh "bro", I bet that would count as a word on Scramble. That's a freebie for everyone out there - because most likely I'll be challenging you to play me, to attempt to bring you down into the long spiral of addiction with me. I'm such a good friend.

LOL - "out of shape with a unibrow" that cracked me up! Oh yeah! And I love playing scramble with you! Let's start up a big game with lots of ppl sometime! :) Your Mother's Day sounded just perfect! We still have to make plans to get together soon!

Glad you had a nice mothers day. I too was served breakfast in bed. Fun stuff, isn't it?
Since your an Office fan as well, I wanted to tell you that last week we were watching reruns on TBS and I saw an old episode I hadn't seen before and I think my favorite Jim-Dwight prank I've ever seen... did you see the one where Jim puts all of Dwights stuff in the vending machine and then gives him nickels to buy it all back with? We laughed so hard!!
Have a good week!!

I can't stop laughing at the unibrow out of shape comment. I feel the same way. I haven't been doing my exercising since my fall and today a week later I resumed. Now I have been outside walking and what not but not to much so I will be very sore later. I hope this exercise stuff pays off but so far no dividends. I am glad that you love scramble, but I wish you had never challenged me. When your high score is 13 you know you shouldn't be playing the game!

I will definitely check out Scramble sometime - although I'm sure I don't need another reason to keep me on the computer :) Not to mention I know you would crush me, so I'm afraid I would just be humiliated :)
Glad you had a great Mother's Day!

hey, stop playing scramble and update your BLOG!

how about a favorite quotes from the office last night. oh it was a good one

Sorry Megan - but I had to "ignore" your Scramble invitation, lest I be tempted to be on the computer for more reasons than I already am... No one in this family needs me up till 11:30 playing Scramble... If I'm going to be up that late at least I'd be watching reruns of America's Next Top Model...
