WARNING - Pee Before Watching

This Wal-Mart clown commercial aired during the Super Bowl and I laughed so hard I had tears. Saw it again today on Ellen and it had the same effect. Have you seen it? Here's a link to the commercial to bring some laughter to your day: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hsvAj6qfmFQ&feature=player_embedded

*Did you laugh at this commercial?
*Did you laugh because you imagined your husband as the clown?
*How many times did you watch it?
Are you still laughing?

Thank God for Unanswered Prayers

Have you heard Unanswered Prayers by Garth Brooks? Well, I am thankful that God didn't answer my prayer yesterday to put me out of my misery. Ugg, I was down with the full blown flu and found myself "praying to the porcelain God". But thankfully God didn't take me seriously and let me awaken this morning to a kiss from my husband as he left for work. There was no more fever, nausea or aches. Only the soaked pajama's as evidence that either I peed the bed or my fever broke. Being that the sheets weren't soaked too, I say it was fever breaking. Very glad the horrible day yesterday is behind me. New day, new mom, but not a fun way to loose weight!

Today has been filled with turn the heat down, open a window in each room, wash all the linens, pillows, blankets and spray everything with Lysol.

*Have you had the flu yet this year?
*How do you handle being sick, like a mom or like a man?

*What do you use to conquer the flu bug?

"X" x 4 = OMGosh!

Today was day 4 of the P90X workout. Holy crow I'm sore. I bend down to pick up socks or even walk downstairs to work out and my butt cheeks and abs scream in pain! No pain, no gain, right?

This is all in an attempt to get back into my athletic shape back in my 19-23 yrs of age. Oh yes, one can dream! I enlisted a "trainer" to push me like my trainer "Blakka" did back in my cheerleading days. So, Brad and I are working out together to get back into shape. We tell the kids it's to stay healthy so we can be a pain in their butt longer. ;) The soreness feels horrible but in a good way. Here's to staying on this fitness journey and being in great shape for summer!

*Are you doing any workout video, or walking, eliptical, etc.?
*How long/often do you workout?
*Do you workout by yourself, with your spouse, friend, trainer?

It's A Snow Day Monday!


Don't think there's any better way to spend a wintery Monday morning then in your pj's, a hot cup of coffee and the kiddo's snuggling with you in a comfy blanket while watching Lilo & Stitch. Why? School's cancelled, it's a SNOW DAY!

The kids slept in until 8:00 and freaked when they saw the time. "Mom, it's 8 'o clock. We're late for school!" My ears are still ringing from the screams of excitement when I told them there's no school.

So what's up for today? I moved from the couch to make chocolate chip pancakes. Yes, score 1 for mom!! I made extras and threw them in the freezer for tomorrow morning. 2 points for mom! Then I saw the updated school closings. The University of Michigan is closing at noon. Oh crap, that means hubby will be coming home! Time to change out of my housecoat and throw on my "Wonder Woman" gear to speed clean. Thank goodness I cleaned up after breakfast. Hmm, how many clothes can I hang up before Brad get's home? Picture me spinning around and around like Lynda Carter... here I go...

Aaaa-choo!

Don't know if it's my cold or dusting off this blog that is making me sneeze. Yes I've been slacking. I've found so many cool blogs since the new year that have inspired me to sit down and type. If I start to slack, hollar and tell me to get back to work.

It's Friday, oh happy day! That means family night with pizza and a movie. Maybe even a game of Yahtzee with the kiddos. What are your plans for the weekend?
