Just a bunch of randomness....

I have finished ALL of the books in the Twilight series. I am missing my friends from Forks, WA (you know, where all of them live) very much today. I highly recommend the books. There is the sensuality that makes me uncomfortable (mostly in the first book), but I love these characers. The Cullens (Edward's vampire family) are just so... so....good. They are just peaceable, moral people.

I retook the quiz, and I'm still Jasper. Last time I took it I didn't know a few of the characters for the question of who your least favorite character...my answer changed as soon as I met Jane.


Josh and Karen came over last night. Josh missed us. I'm so glad he misses us! We miss him too. I love it when they come and visit!

We watched Igor with them. I *love* that show. I laugh through the whole movie. I'm the *only* person I know who laughs throughout the movie, and I've watched it twice in the movie theater and once at home....so if you find the humor in it, will you please leave me a comment and make me feel like I'm not so weird please? And if you didn't laugh...well, don't mention it, okay? {grin}


The kids and I have been sick....again. I don't know why I have caught every bug this winter. I need to boost my immune system. I also need to learn to not stress as much, because you all know that I've been doing too much of that this winter, too, and that will lower my immune system, too.

I think we've got Fifth Disease this go round. It is supposed to be a childhood disease that you get only once....but not my family. We caught it in KY, and now it appears that we have contracted it again here in UT. I wonder if the strain is just different enough between the two that the natural immunities don't protect us. It has after effects that can stick around awhile, but I hope it doesn't.

Have a great Tuesday!


  1. It's good to be back in touch with you Mel, and I don't know how you do all that you do. Thanks for teaching me about Fifth Disease. I'd never even heard of it and I have a bit of a medical background.
    I like the clover, too!

  2. I hope you all get to feeling better soon.


  3. I hope everyone feels better soon!!!!

    Oh when I finished the Twilight series I so missed Forks, too!!!

  4. I bought the books so I could visit Forks whenenver I got lonely. I enjoyed New Moon much better the second time around. (more like you did the first time) The first time I read it, Bella's sadness sort of got in the way. The second time I could get past that and enjoy all the rest--like how cool Jacob is. It was the same for me with Harry Potter 5. The first time, all I got was "Harry is very angry" I had to read it again to get the rest of it.

    p.s. I liked Igor and laughed alot. I love his lisp and how he got a "Yes Master's Degree" in college. That girl--she is funny even when you only hear her voice (the one who changes shapes) and my favorite was the song that played in the background while Igor is coaching Eva. ("The bigger she is, the more that I love her, the more that I love her, the more that I feed her, the more that I feed her the bigger she gets..." ) since all my exercising is not equalling any weight loss, I seem to have joined the ranks of bigger for more permanence than I planned.
