Two Questions.

1. Why was Kate Gosselin at the Emmys? Doesn't one need to contribute something worthwhile to the acting world to be invited to the Emmys? Apparently not.

2. What the hell was she wearing?

Joan Rivers, when asked what she thought of the dress, said, "WHO CARES?! She needs to go home, stay there, and learn her kids' names."

Now, I certainly wouldn't describe this woman as the fashionista she obviously thinks she is, but seriously, how can a woman look in the mirror and think a dress that makes her look like a giant box is flattering? And girlfriend is not fat (hello, she had a free tummy tuck), but zoiks, that makes her look more full in the tummy. It's just a terrible cut and the boob area is so classless. Such a pity. But, I'll be nice and say her face and looks beautiful, her hair is OK, and her jewelry is nice.

At least she doesn't look this ridiculous:

Rita Wilson also looks like a box. And those shoes have left me speechless. January Jones looks like the little girl in "Signs" when she uses tinfoil to keep away the aliens. There are no words for the ugliness that is that dress.

Have you ever wondered what a drunk dog looks like?

Then you've come to the right place.

Before any of you report me to PETA for animal abuse, let me explain.

Almost every dog we've ever owned has been a fan of some kind of mind altering drug. Out first Cocker Spaniel (which my parents owned before us kids came into the picture) once got into a package of Haldol (my dad used to sell it). Haldol is the heaviest anti-psychotic, commonly used for paranoid schizophrenics. Doggie was stoned. This is the same dog that ate an entire pound of Fannie Mae chocolates. And didn't die. He had have had 9 lives.

Then our sweet Cocker, Spunky, used to drink beer and wine all the time. Never much, but he'd drink what he could get his hands on.

This past Wednesday, Macklin, our half-Bichon half-Cocker Spaniel, apparently needed a lil' somethin' somethin' to ease the mind. My mom took a glass of wine outside, set it on a lower table, and went off to water the flowers. She came back some minutes later to find the glass completely empty. Mack had jumped up on a chair, walked on the table, and drank the wine. All without knocking the glass over or breaking it. Rather impressive, if you ask me.

But wait, it gets better. For some reason, my mother decided to give him his daily dose of Benadryl for his allergies post-wine consumption. So now we have a 20lb dog with a benadryl in his system and a glass of Chardonnay.

Baby got drunk. Real drunk. And I wasn't home to witness the best part, as he was apparently running into doors and losing his balance (although he was still really loopy when I got home). So, of course, being the caring and concerned "mom" that I am, immediately instructed my mother to grab the video camera and record him in his drunken stupor. If you watch him, you'll notice he keeps walking in circles acting confused, his feet slip out from underneath him, and, well, getting onto the couch is sad, but comical, and then he looks just about dead lying in my brother's lap. And I realize this may be one of those, "you had to be there" moments, but oh well.

If you don't want to hear my mother's side of the phone conversation with me and apologies to the dog, keep the volume off. And ignore the white dog, Murphy. He's an (adorable, sweet) attention-whore.

I called the emergency vet to ask what to do; all they said was keep a close eye on him and let him sleep it off. He had to sleep with me that night because I wanted to make sure he was OK. Of course, I woke up every 45 minutes to make sure he was breathing. After sweating like crazy, waking up around 3 to guzzle a cup of water, and sleeping it off, Mackie's first time being drunk was over.

But the laughter has lasted for days :)

Special thanks to Pam & Adriane for giving me advice to use youtube after I cursed blogger. *Cue song "I get by with a little help from my friends..."**

Mei, I loved your idea of interpretive dance. It actually would have been a pretty good interpretation, as I always look drunk when I try to dance ;)

I curse you, blogger!

I have a post about my drunk dog typed and ready to go. I created a video. Uploaded it to blogger. Waited for-freakin-ever for it to finish loading. Clicked play to make sure it works. And what happens? NOTHING.

aknflaksgnlakgalkwjflakj. (<--- cursing.)

It says an error has occurred. If anyone knows how to help me and wants to, I'd appreciate it. ficklewhitewoman@gmail.com. Otherwise, you are just going to have to use your imaginations as to what a drunk dog looks like. And, really, that'd be a shame.

Also, I have a sad, sad, feeling my visits to blogland are going to be few and far between this semester, compliments of advanced physiology. Tear :'(. I'm going to try and post once a week, but that may be the extent of it, which makes me really sad, as writing keeps me sane. So if I don't visit your site much in the next four months, don't take it personally, just blame it on my psycho A&P prof. And then figure out a way to convince her to give me an A, regardless. Then I'll pimp out your blog relentlessly as a sign of my appreciation. Deal?

Anyway, help me out with the video. Or don't. Whatever. I'm off to review for class.

A little game of "would you rather...?"

Jen @ Brown Eyed Girl tagged me in this little Q & A. Apparently I'm supposed to answer her questions and then ask 8 of my own and tag some of you fine people. Oy. I'm horrible at coming up with interesting questions, so we'll see what I can do.

For now, here are her Q's and my A's.

1. What is your favorite beverage?
Crystal Light Lemonade (pink or original), flavored sparkling water, milk, Diet Dr. Pepper Cherry, Diet Root Beer, Coke Zero, wine (Chardonnay or Pinot Grigio), Vodka and Lemonade, frozen margarita's, Twisted Monkeys! Oh those are the best! It's ice in a blender, Bicardi Limon, lemonade, and a splash of cranberry juice. So good!

2. What is (are) your must have item (s) when you leave the house?
Hmm, beats me. If I'm driving, obviously my purse and cell phone. If I'm riding, usually just myself. I don't like having things attached to me at all times.

3. What is your favorite vacation spot?
Siesta Key, FL; All over Hawai'i (although Kaua'i is my favorite island for relaxing); Palm Desert, CA.

4. Vanilla or chocolate?
Chocolate all the way. The darker, the better. Have any of y'all had the Godiva Chocolate Cheesecake from Cheesecake Factory? Oh. My. Gosh. It is to die for. I was in heaven when I had it three years ago and have been craving it ever since. They probably don't even make it anymore. And Chocolate Fudge Brownie is one of my fave ice creams!

5. Where do you spend most of your time outside of work/home?
Psh, in my car, driving. So exciting. And I'm usually in my car driving to class. Even more exciting!

6. Are you a reader? If so, who is your favorite author?
Oh yes, I am! I've only read three books this summer, which is quite unfortunate. They were all of the same "Jessica Darling" series by Meghan McCafferty (I'd read two of them in high school/college, but had to reread them so I could finish the series). I can't pick a favorite author, though, as I've read hundreds of books in my life (literally. I started reading on my own at 2 1/2.) from a wide array of categories with an even wider array of author's. Judy Blume will always be a fave, though!

7. Other than Blogger, what is your favorite website to visit?
For laughs: peopleofwalmart.com or lamebook.com
For celeb gossip: people.com or radaronline.com
For actual news: CNN.com or yahoo.com

8. Who was your childhood best friend? Are you still friends?
I didn't have a best friend, per se, in my childhood, but I am still friends with my old Derbyshire Court gang! I need to do a post about life on Derbyshire. 25+ years later and our families are all still the best of friends. All of my best friends are from college, and we're still friends.

I tag: (anyone can do this, I just closed my eyes and pointed to a name. Just make sure your answers are funny ;))
Courtney @ Nursing Anatomy

For my questions, we're going to do a little, "Would you rather..."

Would you rather:

1. live in Death Valley for a year OR see Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus in concert everyday for a year? (no, earplugs are not allowed.)

2. live off of pickles for a year OR live off of McDonald's for a year? (Three Words: "Super Size Me")

3. give up blogging (writing & reading) for a year OR give up watching TV for a year?

4. be a 60-year-old virgin OR Michelle Duggar**?

5. drive a Smart Car OR a Matchbox Car? Because, really, they are about the same size.

6. marry Snooki OR Mel Gibson (sexual preference aside)? If you are unfamiliar with Snooki, let's say Kate Gosselin.

7. have dinner with Osama bin Laden OR Kim Jong-il?

8. travel to all of the European countries OR visit all 50 states & Puerto Rico & D.C.?

**I actually really like Michelle. She seems like the sweetest person in the world.

Also, yesterday in the fave 80s flick question, I forgot to put "The Brave Little Toaster" What a classic!

Monday Minute

Well, Ian relinquished control of "Monday Minute" for the rest of time, and it is now being hosted by Heather @ In the Land of Crazy & Melissa @ Day to Day Living. This week is also being cohosted by Not Your Average Single Momma. Did you follow all that?

Anyway, here are the questions:

What is your favorite 80s flick?
Adventures in Babysitting, Ghostbuster's, Dirty Dancing, & Risky Business

One genre of music needs to be banned. Which genre?
Anything that remotely sounds like Insane Clown Posse or heavy metal.

What is your all time favorite candy?
Sour Patch Kids. Gummy Bears. Riesen. Anything with chocolate and peanut butter. Skittles. Starburst. (Have you noticed when it says "what is your favorite?" I always list more than one thing? Clearly I'm incapable of picking favorites.)

How 'flawed' is your driving record?
Perfect! I did get a speeding ticket a couple years ago, but I did the deferral program, which removed any trace of the ticket.

What was high school mascot?
Trojan. The Bishop Chatard Trojans.

What color socks are you wearing?
I'm barefoot. I don't really like wearing socks unless I'm wearing tennis shoes (or sneakers, whatever you weirdos call them).

Thanks, ladies, for hosting!

Mission: Climb out of Rut. Step: One

Let it be known that this entire summer, I have been stuck in a huge rut. I haven't volunteered at the hospital at all, I haven't babysat as much as usual, I've worked out maybe 10 times, and I haven't done much blogging (but you all probably noticed that). While I've enjoyed the weather and being outside, as the days pass by, I realize how much bigger that rut keeps getting and how desperately I need to pull myself out. The list of ways to get my life back on track is quite extensive, but I'm hopeful that a change will come sooner rather than later.

First up on that list: class.

I'm the type of person that thrives on routine, which is funny considering I know I'd hate my life if I worked an 8-5 office job. Anyhow, staying busy and having something to do daily is best for my mind and body. Unfortunately, any sense of strict routine went out the window when I went to college, and has yet to return. I go to bed late, wake up late, eat, maybe babysit, watch TV, maybe lay outside, take my dogs for a walk once in a blue moon, go to bed late, etc. Tell me that's not depressing. I dare you.

However, even though college took away most of the routine I was accustomed to, the consistency of class at least gave me something productive to do almost daily. So it came as no surprise when, after only two short weeks of being out of class, I was ready to get back into the swing of things. Last night, my 5-week business statistics course began. Next week, I will begin advanced physiology. And then, later in the semester, I will take lifespan development and abnormal psychology.

Let's talk about my statistics course, shall we?

The class is only 5 weeks long, thank God. I find this subject to be more boring than watching paint dry. I need to continually remind myself that it could possibly help me with charting (am I reaching?) when I'm finally an RN (which seems eons away), so that I quit dwelling on the fact that I find it to be an immense waste of time and money.

Being 5 weeks long, the class is two days a week, from 545-945 in the evening. Can I get a gross?

Here's some interesting facts I made note of during the four hours of boredom:

1. I'm 99% sure my instructor's bedtime is BEFORE 9:45.

2. I'm 99.6% sure my instructor was the voice of ALF. This "fact" makes it really hard to not laugh when taking notes and all you hear is his voice and you picture a furry little creature from Melmac lecturing from the front of the room.

3. I am the youngest person in the class of 20, by at least 10 years.

4. I am one of three without a child.

5. I am the most educated in the class, aside from the instructor. No one else so much as holds an Associate's. This fact makes me slightly uncomfortable, although I'm not sure why.

6. I'm probably the only one not worried about the level of ease/difficulty in this class. But I also am at a major advantage in that I don't have a real job, I don't have a kid, and I don't have a spouse to take care of.

7. If this class was any longer than 5 weeks, I surely would die of boredom. Aside from an all-too-quick 10 minute break, the man talked for 4 hours! How can one possibly talk about numbers and frequency charts for four hours?! Plus, he's not even that good of an instructor. I feel like this class is going to be the kind where I show up because I have to, but will really be teaching myself everything.

8. I can afford to teach myself because both exams (midterm and final) are open notes, open book. The homework is graded based on completion. He also will go over, in detail, the homework problems and show us how to correctly do said problems so that we may have the proper methods to use as part of our "notes" when we take our exams. Is this college?

9. I'm so ready to start nursing school and move on with my life.

So with one session down and nine to go, I'm hoping I come out on top and don't have to put my money where my mouth is.

As my other classes begin, I'm hoping I'll be closer and closer to being back to normal. I also plan on joining Weight Watchers and really, really need to work out daily. With all of my health problems, I know working out is one of the best (and natural) medicines for it, so I need to get my head out of my bum and start doing something good for myself. I'm sure getting moving and developing better eating habits will make me much happier, as well.

Anyway, I'm hoping to not go days on end without anything substantial to say on here, as I find blogging to be extremely cathartic, but I make no promises. For now, I'm just going to take it day by day and see what happens.

I hope all is well in your neck of the woods!

Oh, ps. I'm blown away by how many people don't know the awesomeness that is Carmen Sandiego. Re-look at the picture in the post before this one and observe the lady in the red hat and coat (ignore the guy with the blurred out face). Read the caption just below the picture. Then click here.

'Monday Minute'

It's Monday. Again. Ian is co-hosting "Monday Minute" with Kendra from Baby Bits. Hope you guys had a great weekend! Hopefully I'll be able to recap my weekend as "Mom" sometime this week.

Monday Minute

1. What was your "oh no, I'm turning into my Mom/Dad" moment?

Well, obviously I'm not a mom, but since I am an honorary mom, I can still answer this. I continually find myself saying the dreaded, horrid, worst-answer-ever response to "Why?!" with "Because I said so, that's why!" ::Shudders:: Or the time I caught myself pouring a class of wine after a long day of babysitting and realized why so many parents drink every night. Or the time I apologized to my parents for never listening after I got incredibly frustrated with the kids not listening to me.

What current commercial do you find the most annoying/funny?

The Orkin commercials with the roach crack me up. I loathe the Pertussis vaccine ad, all Geico commercials, all Progressive commercials, the anti-smoking ad where the cigarette is lit with the windows up and doors locked and a kid inside, and the ad where the mom is on the couch sleeping and wakes up to find she's smuggled her infant. Typical America, trying to scare the bejeezus out of all of us.

If you could only eat one color food for the rest of your life what would it be?

I'll say green, since I can't think of a 'bad' green food. Might as well keep it healthy if my options are going to be incredibly limited.

What is your current Facebook/Myspace/Twitter status?

I don't have anything up. But this was up the other day: "when I die, I want to come back to life as Bon Qui Qui."

If you are unfamiliar with the hilariousness that is Bon Qui Qui, that's unfortunate. Click the link. You're welcome.

And this is on facebook. Myspace is for pedophiles and Twitter isn't a concept I am willing to understand.

F, Marry, Kill from this list below. Women pick from the men, men pick from the women.
Snookie (from Jersey Shore), Ellen DeGeneres, Betty White
Regis Philbin, Justin Bieber, Perez Hilton

I'm going to give my opinion on the ladies and man. Yes, man. I only see one in that list.

Snookie-- kill. Why the hell is she famous and why is she constantly on every friggin website I ever visit? CNN. Yahoo. People. ENOUGH ALREADY!

Ellen-- I don't hate her, so I wouldn't kill her. But I don't swing that way, so I wouldn't F her. I guess that means I'd marry her. She's kind of funny, but she'd get on my nerves.

Betty White-- marry. I love me some B. White. She's so hilarious and witty and nothing is off limits with her!

Regis Philbin-- I'd marry him if I was deaf. He's one of those person's that thinks he is hilarious, but isn't.

Justin Bieber-- Um, clearly I wouldn't F him as that would be statutory rape. Never mind the fact that I'd rather die a virgin than so much as stand in his presence for longer than 10 seconds. He and Snookie can move to North Korea for all I care.

Perez Hilton-- I wouldn't touch his ass with a 10 foot pole. He can join the other two in North Korea.

These answers are brought to you by my extreme exhaustion. Very little sleep = very cranky Marianne.

Feel Good Friday

Oh Laura Erika, how I've missed thee!

Erika is the lovely writer of The Girl Next Door Grows Up. Not only was she one of my very first followers, but her Feel Good Friday meme (ps, still looking for an alternative word to use here), was one of the very first blog posts I did! I L.O.V.E. this woman and her blog and her quirkiness and, oh, I just want to give her a hug!

Anyway, I haven't participated in Feel Good Friday in way too long and I've really missed it. I think it's such a great way to remember the great times from the week and forget about the bad. If you'd like to play along and share some of your good times from the week, hop on over to her blog and choose one of the 5 prompts. Don't forget to link up!

I have decided to write about a couple things that made me really, really happy this week:

1. On Monday, I had my Microbiology final exam. My grade in this class all summer has been a mid B because I did horribly on one freakin' exam. I was really nervous the last few weeks because I had to get a B in order to be able to apply for the nursing program I am interested in. Well folks, I totally ROCKED my exam! 56/50 (there were 10 points of extra credit.)!!! WOOHOO! I pulled out an 89 in the course, which is a high B. And, actually, I'm really glad it was an 89 and not a 90 or 91, otherwise, it would have been a repeat of what happened last semester with Anatomy (grade scale discrepancies between campuses of the same school).

2. Wednesday morning I received a call from one of the school's in which I am enrolled. I had been on a waiting list for a 5-week course of Business Statistics, but wasn't too hopeful of getting in because there were 8 people ahead of me on the list. The plan was to take it next semester, until Wednesday when I was notified that I had gotten in!!!

3. The best part about getting into the class is that all of my classes next semester will be online. My parents plan on going to Florida in the winter for 6 weeks. You better believe I'm shimmy-ing on down there for a week or so to escape the cold, and now that I don't have to show up to campus for class, I should be able to do so!

So those are my highest of highs from this week! Hope you all had some great moments, too!

I'm nannying for three kids all weekend, so here's to maintaining my patience and energy and will have great stories to share when all is said and done :)

Happy Friday, y'all! And, if you're new to my blog, WELCOME! Thanks so much for stopping by, I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy writing it :)

I thought this was fitting as I will be playing 'mom' to three kids (4, 3, 15mos) Friday-Sunday. Fortunately, they're my regular kids and I absolutely adore them, so I'm excited and they are, too :)

Also, does anyone else find this image to be incredibly, um, odd?

Match.com: Before & After

When I first joined match, I made a profile that was nice, down to earth, and a good indication of who I was and what I was hoping to find. However, I wasn't so in your face about what I was looking for in a match.

Now, I'm over the scam that is online dating. My profile is still a good indication of who I am... just much more matter of fact. Too many men in their late 40s with kids my age were hitting on me. Too many men without a high school diploma. Too many men shorter than me and way too friendly with the bottle. So I took matters into my own hands mapped out exactly what I was(n't) looking for:

Warning: If you aren't prepared for total honesty, read no further.

After much consideration, I've decided I need to include the following. I was hesitant at first because I don't want to come across as a completely picky and abrasive whack-job, but I need to make the most of my membership. So here it goes.

There are a few things I'm not willing to compromise on at this point:

I'm NOT the one for you if:
1. You are older than 35. And that may be stretching it.
2. You are divorced.
3. You are a father. I want a lot of kids, someday. But I'm 23 and a nanny, the last thing I need in my life at this point is an insta-family.
4. You don't want kids.
5. You are unemployed and have no plans to change that any time soon.
6. You are atheist.
7. You are shorter than 5'10.
8. You are an alcoholic.
9. You can't appreciate sarcasm and honesty.
10. You are a smoker and/or drug user.
11. You are a control freak.
12. You live nowhere near Indianapolis.
13. Last, but perhaps most importantly, you are only looking for sex. Here's the deal, I'm saving myself for the man I know I am going to marry. If you can't deal with that, then you can't deal with me.

Is the above a little abrasive? Perhaps. I told you I was honest. And I'm usually not so in your face, but this service has been a complete waste of time and money (case in point: I just got winked at by someone in Sri Lanka. Seriously?) and I'm taking a "no holds barred" approach at this point.

Not totally scared off yet? Then here's a little bit about me...

I probably just confirmed to all of you readers that I'm a handful (although I assume most of you already knew that). Shockingly, the response hasn't been too terrible. I mean, none of the old farts have contacted me any more. A good couple handfuls of guys have emailed me saying how they really liked how honest I was. I winked at a couple guys and emailed a couple. A guy named Dustin (real name), who I was really, really interested in had nothing but nice things to say. But, of course, he's recently met someone. Of course.

Then, I winked at a guy named "Donkey" (fake name). His profile said something about joining match because he's pretty traditional and conservative and hasn't been able to find a woman like that in the bars. Sounded right up my alley. He emailed me and shared a similar interest. Turns out he's from the same city, went to my rival high school, is Catholic, has a good job. Sounds great, right?


He works part-time for the Indianapolis Colts. Now, that's not a problem at all. However, I'm not Peyton Manning's number 1 fan, by any stretch of the imagination (he's the QB for the Colts, in case you aren't NFL savvy). I thought I'd make a joke at the end of my first email to him and say, "Confession: I'm probably the only person in the state of Indiana that hates Peyton Manning. I bet that's some sort of sin, huh?"

He emailed me back and said at the end of his email, "Yes, it is a sin. Why don't you like him? Are there any players you do like?"

I shouldn't have taken the bait. I really, really should not have taken that damn bait. Re-reading his wording, he probably said it far more snarky than I had interpreted.

I told him I thought Peyton was a poor sport and fake.

I never heard from him, which was weird because he had been pretty quick with his responses. My mom kept giving me a hard time that he didn't like what I had to say about Peyton. I thought that was the most ludicrous idea ever. I mean, really? It's my opinion. How old are we? I just can't comprehend writing someone off because they don't like the same celebrities you do.

Turns out, mother does know best. I emailed him and said, "I suppose my opinion of Petyon didn't bode well with you? Eh, oh well. Best wishes."

Now, mind you, we're talking about Peyton Manning. Not the Dalai Lama or the Pope. Or even a mutal friend that he and I have. But given his response, you would have thought I just committed the most mortal of mortal sins.

No, it did not. I was shocked that anyone would make comments like that about someone they have never met, and to someone they don’t really even know. I actually know Peyton personally and have worked closely with him over the last five years in my part-time job for the Colts. While Peyton is no saint, none of us are, he certainly isn’t the terrible person you make him out to be. Your accusations of him being fake and a sore loser, couldn’t possibly be more offbase. Passing that kind of opinion on someone you don’t know is sad, extremely judgmental and a very unattractive quality.\

I. Was. Speechless.

I sent him back way too nice of a response (because I really didn't want to prove his point any further. Plus, all my really good comebacks came to mind later-- which probably is a good thing.) which included, "In all fairness, he's a public figure. I don't know anyone that doesn't form opinions on people they constantly see in the media."

But seriously? How much does one have to get paid to walk around with their head that far up someone else's ass? And funny how he's judging me, yet has no issue telling me what an ugly characteristic that is. Hypocrite. My friend, Nate, said I should have said something along the lines of, "I don't have to know Hitler or Stalin to know I wouldn't have liked them."

Donkey probably likes Michael Vick and Tiger Woods, too. Oh shoot, there I go passing judgments, again.

Anyway, at least I found out how immature and crazy he is before we went on a date. I'm over match (yes, I will admit that I am 1. too opinionated, 2. need to be less vocal of said opinion, and 3. have a really strong personality and may come across as crazy, too). I cannot wait for my subscription to end. I have a crazy idea in mind, but I'll post about that soon. Also, remind me to tell you guys about Metro Myle. Seriously, if I haven't told you in the next couple days, remind me.

In unrelated news: I really miss blogging. I need to quit being lazy and get back into the swing of things... hope y'all are doing well :)

Monday Minute

Hey all, how was your weekend? My brother turned 25 on Saturday and my Grams turned 89 on Sunday, so we had some family over to celebrate their lives. Otherwise, I laid low and studied for my microbiology final that I take tonight.

Since it's Monday, I thought I'd participate in Ian's 'Monday Minute.' This week, Ian is co-hosting with Jenn from Brown Eyed Girl. Be sure to visit both their blogs. If you want to play along, copy and answer the questions, then link up!

Monday Minute

1. Describe your life in one word.

Chaotic or complicated.

2. Is there something you wished you had learned to do as a child?

A cartwheel. It's the most pathetic site, to see me attempt to do one.

3. Who has been the biggest influence on your life?

I don't really know. I guess my mom. She's shown me how to be a strong, independent woman.

4. What is your greatest dream/hope/aspiration?

To be a mom to many children. Please, like y'all didn't know the answer to that. It's the one and only thing that would leave me feeling unfulfilled should it not be accomplished.

5. Do you believe you have reached your potential? Why or why not?

Hmm, that's kind of a tough question. Honestly, I'm not sure any of us ever meet our full potential, as I think there is always room for growth and improvement. We can always be a better sibling, child, parent, employee, boss, student, person, etc.

Thanks, Ian & Jenn!

Also, thanks Janet @ Something to Talk About for passing the Versatile Blogger Award to me. Thanks Janet, I'm so honored! :)

Hope you all have a wonderful week! In a perfect world, my creative juices will start flowing again and I'll be able to finish some posts I have in the works. :)
