Date night

This is funny:
Last night was homecoming night here for our highschool (WHS).  Andy and I went on a date night and we went to the homecoming football game!
Andy had not been to one since highschool he thought.
I have been to one--to go with Sissy and Caroline or something--can't remember.
It was very fun!!
The marching band had a reunion this year and people from all over the country came home
and THEY PLAYED at the football game.
When we were in high school we had a HUGE BAND with beautiful uniforms etc.
They competed all over the country.
Now, this year, there were about 12 students in the marching band at the homecoming parade.
Guess who was in the parade???
V-man!  The kindergarten teachers got together and decided that the littles would wear tie dyed tees and walk in the parade!!
It was very fun.
Going out to that last night brought back floods of memories!!
Andy was going down memory lane too.
WHS lost to Havelock--
The band sounded great--we looked over and some of their instruments were banged
up and not shiny!  The people had just pulled them out of the closet/attic etc. and
come to play.

Bueno--that is enough of that...I will post a picture of V-man

Breaking it out...

Since it's Saturday, and my kids have 20 more minutes to play in the yard...I am going to break out my old soapbox again...
I know you all have been missing it! :)
Okay..the other night I just happened to be watching TV whent the interview with A.R0mn3y came on.
I just about fell off the couch when she said that her favorite show is....
I am sure you have already heard this...
Modern Family!!!!
That is my favorite show too!! Are you kidding?  We {actually} have something in common!!
BUT {really} people.
Have you ever watched that show?
Ummm..this lady is a Mormon!!??
They do not {agree} with being gay--or however you want to say it.... pick a way-I call it all really dumb---and also religious conviction--I guess a mix of the two.
I happen to not agree with the people who want to judge/call out/pick on etc. gay people.
I also love, love, love that show.
So--back to the couch...
I almost got mad...I mean if anyone was watching that and did not think she seemed like a total idiot/hypocrite, then you must not have been listening to the interview, you must have been daydreaming after a long day of work (which is what I am about to start doing b/c this post is not writing itself to me right now).
So, okay--there are things that I am against ...
ummm..So, I do not watch shows that include those themes.
This is why any commercials, previews etc. about all of those murder shows and violence against women crime shows --they all get muted and turned --I don't like those activities or shows about them.
I am against that stuff.
I do not watch it, I am not entertained by it--it is not allowed in my house, really--even Andy does not watch that stuff.
So she--if she believes in her temple's teachings, does not believe that gay people are okay--
BUT--watching a hilarious show that includes a gay couple who is in a {married-like} relationship--
Well, sh!t--it's her favorite show, folks!
There you go!

Andy later clued me in...of course she would say that--it is most of America's favorite show--so
she wants to fit in....
Well, I still say she needs to check her facts.

Un Mes (Septiembre)

Bueno, this post idea is from Jen of "Jen World" --over there in the sidebar.
I am going to set a goal for the month of September:  I like her idea...do the goal for one month.
Months fly by around here, you know!?
My goal is this:
Do not eat processed food snacks in the afternoon.  This means--no cookies, candy bars, chips, snack mixes, crackers--none of it.
Allowed?  Fruit, sliced bread, cheese, hummus, olives--all of which I like very much and usually have readily available.
I have been gaining weight at an astounding rate...AMAZING! i TELLYA!
This is coming from my stress level and the need to load up on carbs when I get home from school and on my way home from school.
I wonder what will happen with the weight I have gained--if I just control this need to eat junk--and lots of it--in the afternoons? hmmm...
No tea is helping this, Morgan! :(.
