Danielle bullet points.

So here's what's been going on:

  • Dante is driving me INSANE! It's like he's gotten mommy anxiety or something. Everywhere I go- his nose is ATTACHED to me....SOMEwhere. Like...on my bum. I'm walking and he just walks with his nose attached to me bum. Then there's the fact that he has gotten in a lovely habit of eating, drinking water, going outside, and after a good long while outside, he waits to come INSIDE to shake his head and fly slobber EVERYWHERE! UGH- why can't he just do that outside? I still love him. He's just testing my patience lately.
  • I got my eclipse tickets. June 30 (opening DAY) at 7:30pm. To me, that is the PERFECT time. Opening day, so that not TOO many spoilers are out....but not at freaking midnight where I'll be snoozing. I'm pretty pumped. When I went to buy the tickets, the cashier was like, you want midnight? I was like- no I want 7:30 pm on Weds the 30th. He seriously looked at me like I was a FOOL for not wanting midnight tickets. Whatev.
  • It's been raining FOREVER. I feel like I'm in Oregon. Not in a good way, either. I've said this before, and I'll say it again- I wish I lived in ONE SEASON year round. Sunshine everyday. Oh, that sounds heavenly. If only.
  • I woke up last night, in the middle of the night, to Clay talking- full volume- but in kinda a creepy sneaky voice and I kid you not, he said, "Don't even try running from me. I'm gonna kill you. Don't walk away from me!" ha! I said, "Clay???,....Hun???...." He just kept talking like I wasn't there. And then I specifically tried to stay awake so I could hear more of this craziness. But unfortunately, he stopped...so I went back to sleep. I woke up this morning and was like, "Hun? What did you dream about last night?" He was like- "Ummmm I didn't have any dreams last night." I said, "Ha, ummm. Yes you definitely did have a dream- you're sure you didn't dream about Left for dead or something?" (That's a new cowboy video game that came out recently) "No...why?" So I tell him. He couldn't remember ANY of that. Then we realized later that we watched Casino Royal last night...so he very could have been James Bond last night whilst being unconscious. I guess we'll never know!
  • We have beautiful trees blooming in our backyard and I LOVE THEM! I really wonder why we are so blessed Clay and I. Seems like blessings come lots and I don't really understand why some people get so many hits in life when we get so many blessings. I don't mean that in a bragging way...it just....I guess, I'm really grateful, but somehow feel kinda guilty at the same time. Make sense? Probably not. I mean...Clay and I have struggles in life- but it really seems like the blessings far outweigh the trials.
  • Oh yeah! We have been married over 4 years! Wanna know what we did for our anniversary? Oh ya know...went to the good ol DI. And I think after that we kinda didn't really do much of anything. Kinda silly. I know. But that's pretty much how we roll.

K. That's it! Bachelorette starts in 25 minutes and I couldn't be more excited! Woohoo!

I love it when people talk in their sleep. It is so funny. Also- I was actually thinking the same thing about blessings the other night. I was wondering why I had SO much and others just seem to get beat and have so many trials. I really don't know why. I am grateful- however I am terrified that SOME thing bad has got to happen some time soon.

Ahhh, finally I didn't have to wait 20 min for the comment page to pop up! Don't know what it is about your blog but my computer at home and work truly get bothered by me wanting to comment on it. So glad you loved the Better After site!!! I totally put that one on there for you, I think that you should submit some of your before and afters to it.

Dogs can be just as hard as kids. You have to love them though. They are so helpless and cute. SCARY...If curtis would have done that I would have freaked. I scare easy. Funny you went to DI for you anniversy. Sounds like a perfect marriage to me.

That Dante complaint is pretty funny. Just like a baby, but instead it's an animal. That's why I'll never have one. They stay babies forever.

I didn't even know Eclipse was coming out this month. Very cool. I can't wait. This one looks very teen drama, but that's cool. Just like the books. I love how that guy looked at you like you were an idiot.

Idaho doesn't usually rain, does it? It like, NEVER rains where I live. Did you know southern OR is dry all the time? I swear it's rained like 5 times the last year. Crazy.

Ok, Clay's dream. That is so creepy. I can't believe you didn't wake him. I would have wanted Greg to stop dreaming such a dream! I'm so jealous of your pretty trees. I hate my tree/bushes. I want to take them out eventually. Everyone else likes them, but I think they're ugly and the flowers smell. I LOVED my flowers, but they're already gone!

As far as blessings. I totally feel the same way almost all the time. Especially lately. One time in church someone said one burden/trial in life is having none at all. I think the test for those blessed is what they do with it. Those blessed just need to bless others by helping them. Otherwise, what good are their blessings for? I'm glad you're so happy and things are going so well. Happy Anniversary! Our 5th will probably be spent breastfeeding all day and Greg arresting criminals. Hoorah! I wanna plan something extra big for our 6th 'cause we're missing this one and I'm sure we'll feel like treating ourselves by then.

I wish Mike would talk in his sleep- that is so hilarious! hhahahah- I can just envision the entire thing- so funny. you are really blessed and shouldn't feel guilty at all! enjoy it! I love you!

AMY AND MIKEY said...

I think it is funny how the dog is attached to you. That is the way Nicole's dog Patch is always hanging on her. But she loves him. Grandpa sometimes talks in his sleep, and I think I do sometimes. I am glad you like to go to the movie early, that is the best time. The blessings are wonderful and the more thankful you are the more you will receive. Hugs and Kisses

The talking in his sleep thing made me laugh. Jeff sometimes talks in Bulgarian in his sleep. Can't really tell ya what he is saying. It has been so rainy here in the Treasure Valley lately too. So strange. It just needs to move on but stay nice and cool.

I have been checking your blog to see what happened on Bachelorette because someone stopped my dvr and it didn't record. Trust me, things at my house weren't too pretty when I noticed that that had happened. Where is your post?? I thought for sure that I could just pop over here to get the scoop :)

You are such a great writer, fun to read. I had to laugh when you mentioned your Twilight tickets. Those crazy midnight ticket people are going to be Nati, Katy, and me. Sheena got me tickets to the Twilight saga, all three with Eclipse being the midnight. I am going to have to sleep all afternoon to gear up. I am a morning person, get most things done by 1-2 p.m., dibble along until 6:30, brain dead by 7:30 p.m. This is a real adventure. I am going to enjoy being with my girls more than watching the movies. They wanted to eat first and I said ARE YOU KIDDING, should I just bring a blanket and a pillow and give up on trying to stay awake at all?

Penny Cluff said...

I forgot to mention your table project. I swear mother had one that looked just like that. After she died I had it for awhile and then kicked it to the curb. If I had known it could look that cute, I would have definitely kept it. Awesome.

Sharon/mom said...

the dog, I think I would go nuts. Your dad used to talk in his sleep alot! I forgot to mention the trees and bushes, they are beautiful. You guys had plenty of trials in the beginning of your marriage with Clays health, everyone gets a break for a while. Dad and I went out to dinner one week late for our anniversary. Pitiful! Love you!
