But, I have recently found a blog that just makes me laugh so hard I forget about all my worries and feel lighter and more joyful.
Try it out I am sure you will be as delighted as I am.

But, yesterday I wanted to accomplish something. So I came up with a cute idea for my table.
I wanted a fall-themed table runner. But knowing my children I knew a table runner would be out of the question (same goes for a table cloth). Can't you just see the mess that would be pulled on to the floor?!
So I came up with this instead:
It is just a simple little centerpiece, well out of a toddler's arms reach.
I cut some muslin, and hemed the edges. Then I dry brushed it with a soft brown paint. I painted on the two pumpkins. And sat a real pumpkin in the middle. I thought it turned out pretty cute and have decided to make one for each season.
By the way, it does look better in person.

I don't even like it when Hubby does the laundry (he does it in this very interesting way!)

My plan was to change my name when I turned 18. I never did figure out what I would have changed it too.
As it turns out I like being the only Summer around. In fact it was a pain when I was in a ward at BYU with another Summer (I even visit taught her).
I think I grew to like being unique in name and person.

I don't want a world where we can't watch Mister Rogers' Neighborhood on PBS. It saddens me that there are some people out there who don't appreciate him and his advice, knowledge, and understanding ways. That they think all these other dumb shows are worth more than the affirming, loving, musical, simple teachings of my friend Fred.
And even though my kids have seen so little of him, they know who he is, they know his songs (we sing a few of them around here), and they know there was once a man who appreciated children for who they are.

-Walking for an hour every morning. It gave me so much energy for the rest of the day plus all those good feelings I get when I take care of my body.
-Hearing #4 making tiger noises. Can he get more adorable and lovable? I have a hard time believing it.
-Having 3 children out of the house and one peacefully napping so I could study effectively. Sigh.
-Being sent to the library by Hubby (he even made dinner) so I could do even more studying.
-Cleaning the garage (finally). Just how many bug corpses do you think were in there?
-Losing almost 3 pounds.
-Finishing Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire with #2. And, consequently, starting the next one with him.
-Getting the newspaper. We finally subscribed and I love it!
