Childhood memories

This is childhood for me. The smell of Granny's Oil of Olay face. The bathroom that smelled so lovely with the unmistakable hint of OO.

I grew up with Oil of Olay.

I mean it was almost like that, it was everywhere. And it still is. This is a real Classic. The Beauty Classic!

One of my friends told me the other day that her Granny had given her lots of OO creams- for "just in case". We laughed about it thinking of how for our Granny's its still the ultimate beauty product. And it is so sweet to see actually.

As new brands come out on the beauty market everyday it is nice to see some names out there still going strong. Makes me wonder if I will still use OO when I'm in my seventies *lol* I probably will... I am pretty sure it will still be around then...

Why did I ever get a dog???

When I got married I told my husband I wanted a dog, he said OK and told me I would be the one to take care of the dog. Sure fine by me.

One day I decided our little dog needed company so I got her another slightly larger friend. They get on very well.

But oh are they messy! One goes in the garbage the other pees inside as soon as opportunity is given. Instead of appreciating my lovely dogs I get mad at them daily. Poor little things.

I mean I do love them and would cry if anything happened to them but at the same time I have mixed feelings. I would probably not get a new dog...

Now I gotta go clean up the mess they've made outside...

The Running Game

Everyday it's the same thing- the Running Game starts as soon as Baby C steps out of the shower. IF he gets out that is, just convincing him to get out takes like five minutes...

Typical shower conversation between Mom F and Baby C:

Baby C: "Don't touch my hair!"
Mom F: OK, OK I won't touch your hair. *sigh*
Mom F: OK raise your arms. (Repeat this ten times or more)

After this Baby C usually runs away butt naked laughing at me trying to catch him. After a few minutes of trying to catch him I usually just ignore him. This is also when he starts asking Dad F to dress him which turns out much better.

It will be a nice story to tell when he gets older... *lol*

Easy come easy go

I have never found any money on the ground in my entire life! Yesterday I found 5 cents! Whoho! I thought to myself; God is being good to me and this will be a good day! 30 minutes later I went to buy some bread and got back $5 change. When I arrived home 3 minutes later it was gone!


Can you believe that! Totally gone! Vanished. Gone with the wind. Nowhere to be seen.

Of course I went back the same way I had come but no luck.

Never again will I pick up any money I find. Lesson learned.

Now I have still not figured out what happened...

Baking is an art

Look what I made the other day!

Isn't is lovely? Oh it was even better to eat than to look at.

Did I make that? You wish!

I have never made anything that beautiful in my life I would say, this is just absolutely lovely! Pineapple cakes are yummy and this one is adorable. I really wish the photo had come with a recipe...

Today has been a totally exhausting day and I am not even sure how I will be able to go to bed! I mean getting to bed isn't the problem, it's going to sleep that is difficult.

I have been running around like a headless chicken basically all day and trying to be this wonderful wife who does everything without complaining. Oh I am being so good at the latter. I am not complaining now am I? :)

I love the Internet, no more waiting at the bank, only a little click and we are off to the bank. instead of standing there for ages it only takes a matter of minutes. Depending on what you are supposed to do of course, I had to go there today for some reasons. It only took an hour. *grin*

I better go and get that dinner ready... gah if only someone had told me it was going to be this exhausting becoming a wife and mother.... not that I want to change but ya know....

Rambling through life

Sometimes I feel as if I am rambling through life. So many words come out but how many of them really have an impact on anyone's life or anything at all?

What are we saying that is so important, how important is it for someone else to hear what I have to say? How can I change someone else life through my words?

Our words are more important than we think, therefor we should not ramble through life. We should choose our words carefully.

I really should try and do that last part more often...
