Weekly Update

You’d think I could get around to putting blog updates more than once a week? Umm…yeah, well, here goes:


v                    I’ve been painting. We bought the house next door to ours to expand our Monopoly playing space or “compound”…whichever applies.  In order for it to be in “move in” condition for da kids, we need to paint the inside of it…and painting it we have! It’s taking much more time than I initially envisioned. Note to self – next time you buy a house and plan on painting, make sure the walls and the trim are the same color. It will save much time!

v                    I called the power company this morning to add the power charges from the new house to our current bill. Because my hubby’s name was  the only name on the bill, I couldn’t make any changes. So, ummm…just because I pay the bill through my account, doesn’t mean I get automatic access? Nope, nada, zippo. How annoying.  All of the other utilities were super easy to change. Wassup with Utah Power? Booo. Time for them to get with the program.

v                    Favorite viral joke of the week: Donald Rumsfeld briefed the President this morning. He told Bush that three Brazilian solders were killed in Iraq today. To everyone's amazement, all the color drained from Bush's face, then he collapsed onto his desk,  head in hands, visibly shaken, almost in tears. Finally, he composed himself and quietly asked Rumsfeld, "Just exactly how many is a brazillion?"
