Under the Quilt

I'm here. You're here. Let's talk amongst ourselves.

Admit it, you missed me

I feel like I've been in hiding lately, peeking my nose into other people's lives here and there. And it's pretty interesting, too!

So even though I've been quiet, life is still moving on. Here's some tidbits of life around here lately.

The kids are out of school. I now am the proud owner of a 10th grader (scary!!) and a 6th grader (who is acting like a 10th grader).

Nate now has a girlfriend. Their relationship, so far, consists of talking on the phone, one trip to the $1 theater (we drove them, too bad huh?), and one guest appearance by Nate to her church youth group. I'm not too worried just yet. He hasn't grasped the whole idea of personal hygiene yet. It's getting a little irritating to have to remind a 15 year old to shower and brush his teeth every once in a while. I'm curious to see how long he would actually go if we didn't insist that he use soap and water and toothpaste. Of course when the stench gets to be too much to handle, I give in every time.


Tomorrow night, Jesse and I are going to a Ryan Cabrera concert. I'm not sure which of us is more excited (okay, I'll admit that it's me!). When his last album came out a few years ago he still had the cute boyish look going on. Well, he's all grown up now and Jesse is repulsed. He let his hair grow out and now has facial hair. She still likes his music so I told her at the concert she can just close her eyes and enjoy the tunes.

Here's the new look....Johnny Depp?

We bought the kids a big trampoline this past weekend. They (mostly Jesse) have been bugging to get one for years now. We finally gave in and I'm glad for that. I even got on and jumped til I peed my pants (yes, haven't done enough of those kegels I guess).

While going through Jesse's school papers I found and old "MASH". You remember those? They have a few different categories such as: guys, types of houses, cars, amount of kids, etc. Well, I guess times have changed since I was in grade school. Here's a rundown of what I found:


Crappy (hee!)



Money per year


Kids (adopted)


These were the results.

Jesse is going to marry Bobby. They will have a cat, 2 adopted kids, drive a Prius, and make $150,oo0 a year. They will live in Ohio and she will be a stripper. Guess what? They will also consider getting divorced. I wonder if her occupation has anything to do with that or maybe they just fought too much about who got to drive the Prius.

    Yeah, I was wondering where you were. Have fun with Ryan!
    It was probably the occupation that did it ;)

    $150,000 for stripping? I am in the wrong field.

    (are there any clubs that hire pregnant strippers?)

    And also- was Ryan the singer that used to have spikey hair? I never would have recognized him with his new 'do...

    I loved playing MASH!! We did that all the time when I was Jesse's age. lol

    I once jumped on a trampoline so much (laughing while I did it) that I ended up slobbering all over myself a few times. Attractive, no?

    Bearette- We did!

    Liz- Me too! I bet there are. Men have fetishes for just about anything imaginable. ;)

    Yes, he used to have the spikey hair and the boyish charm. He said that now he's gone independent he doesn't have to listen to anyone tell him how to do his hair (spending $100 a week on it, too). So now he's got the grunge look going on.

    Suzy- We'd make a good pair on the tramp. ;)

    They're getting divorced because she brought home all the money while he sat on his butt. LOL

    Kegels are useless, IMO. Insurance companies only say they work because they don't want to have to pay for surgery. :-)

    Liz - I'm sure the club would hire you as long as you wore your maternity thong.

    Caro - LOL. And re the kegels - I'm glad to hear they're useless, b/c they're unfun!

    I dunno... I'm not sure my maternity thongs are strip club-grade...
