I got tagged

Chelsea tagged me so here are 7 things about me.

I love a good Chick Flick like Sleepless in Seattle. Don't they make any movies like that anymore. Annie " Now that was when people knew how to be in love. They knew it. time, distance...nothing could separate them because they knew. It was right. It was real. It was..."
Becky: "A movie! That's your problem you don't want to be in love. You want to be in love in a movie." Or how about "It's a sign." "You don't believe in signs" Sigh, that was a good flick.
I love a good book to curl up with. I just read Lust for Life by Irving Stone. Amazing. Thanks to my friend Kate for passing on the recommendation.
I hate scary movies. I really get freaked. We laugh at Noah when he hides his eyes when he sees a commercial. Well I'm right there with him.

I don't eat them very often. In fact I planned my next time to have In 'n Out Fries with spread to be on my birthday. Oh so good!

Ok. I am totally addicted to this game. It is called Wurdle. I play it every chance I get. It is crazy. When I go to bed at night I see letters and words in my head. My best score is 2300. I don't know if that is good or not.

I really don't like love handles on me. I'm having a hard time with some right now. Yugh!

Finally, I love, love, love chocolate milk. It has to be already mixed not the kind you add chocolate syrup to regular milk. Mmmmm so so good.

A boy and his ... fish?

Glen went on his annual fishing trip with some of his buddies. Yes, he has a couple annuals. This one was to the Shasta area. He loves it there and he said this year was probably one of the best yet. It's great for him to go, he has a fun time with his friends and all of the guides. I know Noah looks forward to the day he can go on the trip and fish with his dad.

Just a Mom

Have you ever had the thought, I'm just a mom. I have many times. I have the urge to change the world. but I'm just a mom. Perhaps, Whistler's mother had those same thoughts as she sat in her rocker and now she is one of the most famous mother's of all.

Am I changing the world, I think maybe so. One text, one story, one dinner, one phone call, one car pool, one hug at a time, and I wouldn't have it any other way.

If I Were In Charge of the World

Wow, who would have thought I'd have two great writers in the family. First Chelsea writes a phenominal op ed essay for her english class and then Noah comes up with this masterpiece.

Enjoy the ending.
If I Were In Charge of the World
If I were in charge of the world
I'd cancel school during the week except for Friday,
And also have no homework.
If I were in charge of the world,
There'd be video games, toys, Legos and chocolate.
If I were in charge of the world
You wouldn't have homework, school or bag it's.
You wouldn't even have bullies.
If I were in charge of the world
A chocolate bar would be a vegetable,
All legos would be new.
And a person who sometimes forgot to feed the dog,
And sometimes forgot to flush,
Would still be allowed to be
In charge of the world.
