some random things

It's been almost a week since I've posted anything, sorry about that. Levi has been fighting a nasty cold, & this morning I woke up feeling crummy too. Lovely & fun. I'm sure Lincoln will get it in the next few days, so it will be an all-skate.
We've been watching the Olympics, going to the JumpZone, & having craft time at our house lately. This afternoon Lincoln told me I was driving him insane. OMG, seriously. True story. I really need to start editing.

I watched the new episode of Intervention last night & nearly threw up all over my couch. It was about a girl named Allison who was addicted to inhalants. This chick would inhale 10-12 dusters per day. Yes, per day, I said. Dusters are those sprays that get out all of the dust in your computer keyboard. She would literally sit in her apartment & inhale all day long. I'm not kidding when I say my stomach started tumbling & the nausea set in. It was almost like as she was inhaling the chemical, my mind would play tricks on me & think the chemicals were going into my lungs. I had to hold my breath while watching her inhale. You think I'm kidding, but if you saw this episode, you would be right there with me in my imagination. Thank goodness she got sober, or else that would've been even more unsettling.

In other news, we were shopping at Publix this afternoon & Keith, the cashier, checked us out. Lincoln has to ask for a balloon nearly every time we check out, and today was no different. As Keith was checking out our items, Lincoln said, "Hi Keith. How's your day? How you doin'?" It was like Lincoln was BFF with Keith. Keith replied, "Doing good, Lincoln." Lincoln says, "Keith, can I have a blue balloon please?" Keith says, "Sure, no problem....here you go." Lincoln: "Oh Keith! Thank you so much, see ya later. Have a good day!" What a trip. I tell ya, every day he seems to learn something brand new that cracks me up. He's way into pretend play these days & having conversations with inanimate objects, but that's an entirely different post altogether. Be looking forward to that gem in the near future.

Oh, and here's one last random thing. It is officially Fall in our house. What I mean is, I have already decorated for the fall season. Crazy, you say? Perhaps. Do I care? Not one bit. The past 2 mornings have been somewhat crisp outside, feeling somewhat fall-ish, so it totally moved me into the season. It looks really pretty in the house & it smells like autumn, which always puts me in a good mood. My friend Lindsay said to me, "You know that August is considered the dog-days of summer, right? You are insane in the membrane." So so true.
Ben walked in from work last night, looked around, & said, "Oh no. You did it. It's so early." He's a trooper. But really, how can someone not like fall? It's near impossible if you ask me. So if you're tired of the humid heat & going to the pool almost every day (I'm over it), then feel free to come over to the Fall Frenzy on Wolverton Drive. We can sit on the couch, look at the fall colors, smell the harvest candles, & sip a cup of harvest brew.

August Be Gone,

I guess decorating in August for Fall is only fair since Michael will be decorating for Christmas in October. To each their own, right?

HA! You L>O>V>E> fall.

As do I... but it's been an awesome week with the cool temperatures.

Don't EVEN tell me you have a batch of cider going or I WILL have you committed.

You ARE totally hooked to intervention! I am ready for fall too! I don't blame you. If I did decorations they would be up.

My stomach was churning just reading your description of Intervention, so I can imagine what it must have been like to actually watch it! Good thing she accepted the help.
