Random stuff and some tunes.

I am thinking about doing a give away to celebrate my 100th post, it is coming up soon. I have to say that I do make some really cool jewelry that I think would be good for a drawing. The problem is that I am not sure that there are even enough people that read this to worry about it. I know I have almost doubled my followers lately but I don't think that eight people is really enough to justify a give away. Maybe if there were even more than a few people who even commented regularly... huh... maybe not!


Am I a bad mom because I can't stand the sound of my kids favorite music? Does it make me a mean mom because I refuse to play my kids stuff in the car? My kids have grown up with the sounds of Depeche Mode, Pearl Jam, Spoon, The White Stripes, Death Cab for Cutie, etc. Bug can sing just about every Maroon 5 song out there by heart. I know it isn't the best kids music and I am pretty bad influence when it comes to music, but does that make me a mean mom?


We are in the process of getting bids to for our fence. I can't tell you how excited I am by this. I just realized that that statement makes me officially an adult, not only that but a boring adult. Really, who gets excited about putting up a fence... I ask you?


I have decided that I want to travel more. I did get tired of eating out for every meal this last weekend but on the whole that was my only complaint. I love to travel, I even like road trips. I miss the days before kids when S and I spent a large part of our weekends in the car just driving somewhere. We always had our best conversations in the car, a lot of the time we still do, they are just punctuated by comments from our kids too now.


Bug has her friend Taylor over to play right now. I am seriously fighting the urge to go up to her room and tell her that she isn't allowed to have boys in her room! They are ten. Wow I really am getting old. It wont be long before I really am using that statement.... Now I am depressed.

I know the feeling when no one comments and you think that no one is out there reading your stuff. I have that same problem. I don't know if anyone is reading my stuff. No comments. Nothing. I did a give away where all they had to do was post something and I would send them something and only 2 people did it... it was suppose to be for five. I just figure that I blog for myself and for "my posterity". Oh well. I like your stuff. I especially like your music posts, it's so eclectic, I love it. I love how I know most of the songs, and love them, too. COOL. Keep your chin up. Some of us, I gues I mean me, are reading. <3

I like your idea of doing more traveling. You know you can always come to Phoenix. Granted, we don't have a cool ocean to wiggle your toes in. But it's 70 degrees right now, so that counts for something. :)

You should totally do a giveaway!
And go to MMB (Mormon Mommy Blogs, and register your blog--you'll get more followers)
And I'll do a shout out for you on my blog, for your giveaway.
Sometimes, if you say you'll give people an extra entry if they post about your giveaway on their blog, then you get more people.
Just a thought!

p.s. Amen to kid's stuff in the car. I'm getting so sick of hannah montana and jonas brothers, I could scream. I have gotten KJ instead ABBA lately, though, so it's all good.
