Texts On Tuesday

So in order to post my daily feature on the actual day it's supposed to be posted I will be trying to prepare them the night before.  So the "Texts On Tuesday" will actually be texts from Monday.  So without further ado...

10:15am Me to Rhiannon:
 "Hi. Do u think u could pick up joaquin for me? If u have plans no problem. Just thought i'd ask."
  Asked my friend to pick up J from Pre-School so I wouldn't have to wake up sleeping babies and she did.  I love her:)

10:45am Me To Babe:
"Can u take 1/2 day today?"
Wanted hubby to come home early so I could go to an app't I forgot about and also to the Dr.  He couldn't so I couldn't.

3:06pm Jesse To Me:
"Thanks Sarah, pics help me not miss them so much!"
Mom to 2 of my daycare boys thanking me for sending her some pics of her sweet boys.

3:41pm Konny to Me:
"Get to an internist!!!  It's not your anemia.  Get your thyroid checked.... what is your hct let level?.  You can be jaundice from anemia or liver function problems.  Do you have any hepatitis?  You really need to be seen!!"
My Aunt Konny's response to some medical questions I have and a pic I sent her of my yellow fingernails.  Scary stuff:/  So grateful to have my Aunt Konny, though, and her medical expertise!
6:49pm Anne Marie to Me:
"Okay this week you will have Matthew Wed & Thurs.  Hope all is well.  Ps believe his giraffe is there or lost."
Another mom of one of my daycare babies.

Ok... so I decided I also want to post this text conversation I had with my best friend/brother Beau, even though it's from last Thursday, because it left me smiling for days and I want to remember it.
Beau to Me:
"Thanks!  How r u my sister?  I miss the old days when we used to just hang out in eachothers rooms and u listened to my stomach make noises."

Me to Beau:
"Lol.  I miss those days too.  And playing with your wiggly earlobes."
Beau to Me:
"And spying on u guys thru the doorknobless door..."

Me to Beau:
"And me punchinng you so hard when u got caught.  Lol"

Beau to Me:
"Hey..... thats not funny"

Me to Beau:
"Crack the egg on the tramp and gpa's awesome tire swing"
Beau to Me:
"Yikes!!  Go to the basement!"
That was after I sent him a pic of our tornado clouds.

Beau to Me:
"And gpas stilts....and him walking up behind us and snapping us with rubberbands."

Me to Beau:
"I'm picking up the bug at school.  Its passing though.  Gpa's homemade salsa with chips and the cousins playing may i."

Beau to Me:
"And getting grpa back with a rubberband cuz he would always fall asleep watching basketball.  And bringing in little critters for grma to see."

Me to Beau:
"And her saying naughty words.  Car cities outside with amy and cool forts with booby traps"

Beau to Me:
"Aw man!  Car cities were my favorite thing in the world!!  And mom making special family home evening treats sometimes.... like mud pies with worms!"

Me to Beau:
"Hide and go seek in the dark and dancing with gabby."

Oh man we had such a great childhood!!

Motivational Monday

I just read this talk today in my personal study and it's so profound and just so awesome.  I so love Pres. Uchtdorf and I'm ever grateful for his wisdom.

Text On Tuesday

I saw this feature on my friend Sara's blog and I really liked it.  I think it's an interesting and unique way to take a peak into your life and the daily goings on.  Yesterday was actually a light texting day for me which is unusual but here goes anyway:)

Me to Dad:  U awake?
My dad just had open heart surgery and I was trying to get a hold of him to see if he was up to visitors (he wasn't).

Rhiannon to Me: Did u call?  Im at the brewer game.
I had called my friend to see if she was coming to the Book Club meeting but apparently I forgot she was at the Brewers game.

Pete-Alex to Me:  Fyi I will be picking up alex a little early today.... I should be there by 415...
One of the dad's of one of the sweet babies that I watch.

Shalese to Me:  If any leak or have crystal beads,please let me know or clumps of material.  Thank you!!!!
My friend and mom of one of the sweet little boys I watch.  She's doing a diaper study and was giving me instructions about what to do with the diapers.  Oh my glamorous life.... lol!!

Motivational Monday

I LOVE this video.  It speaks peace right to my soul and is just so encouraging.

At this time in my life I think this quote fits perfectly.  It's always been one of my very favorite quotes from one of my very favorite people.
“Anyone who imagines that bliss is normal is going to waste a lot of time running around shouting that he’s been robbed. The fact is that most putts don’t drop, most beef is tough, most children grow up to just be people, most successful marriages require a high degree of mutual toleration, most jobs are more often dull than otherwise. Life is like an old time rail journey…delays…sidetracks, smoke, dust, cinders and jolts, interspersed only occasionally by beautiful vistas and thrilling burst of speed. The trick is to thank the Lord for letting you have the ride.”
Gordon B. Hinckley

Coming Soon...

So I was doing well getting back into the blogging jig after we finally got our internet back and then Bam, our computer doesn't work.  Well thanks to some help from one of my very best friends, my brother Beau, I now have a beautiful new laptop (named Blue Steel because it's blue and sexy and strong).  I've never had such a nice computer that works so well and is just so awesome!  So now that I have the tools (internet and Blue Steel), I am excited to get back to my blogging jig.  I'm going to try something a little new in an attempt to keep my blog interesting.  I will do daily features. I openly admit I got a lot of these ideas from other friends' blogs and some of the ideas I came up with on my own.  I hope it proves interesting and enjoyable.  So starting this weekend here will be the following features:

Monday- Motivational Monday
Tuesday- Text on Tuesday (idea from Sara Murdock's blog)
Wednesday- Wordless Wednesday (idea seen on multiple blogs)
 Thursday- Thoughtful Thursday- musings from my mind
Friday- Flashback Friday- pictures and memories from my past
Saturday- Smiling Saturday- pictures and blessings that I'm grateful for- that make me smile
Sunday- Weekly Family Review
