worthless blog

some blogs have many followers, some even make money, some are updated daily, some accomplish great things like telling the story of someone cooking everything in a cook book or following famous people around. mine is just a lazy good for nothing freeloader, kind of like my cats only worse. it just sits there molding away and collecting dust. it rarely has a story about the family to tell, it rarely has photos to share. it sometimes goes months without an update. I may have to break up with it. I was thinking of starting a new blog, one with lots of followers and tons of photos, one that is updated regularly and shares interesting insight into some complicated project. or even a golden goose of a blog that makes me money oh how sweet it would be. (pause for a day dream)

so consider yourself on thin ice moldy blog, dust yourself off and start pulling your weight or you will be out on the street. I'm sick of the way you carelessly leave my readers wanting more and share no insight or photos. this is the last time i will give you a free warning, its shape up or ship out. and I'll tell you this... my next blog will be way more snazy with decorations and fancy colors, well placed photos with captions, fancy stories of my heroic actions and triple digit followers. it will love me and my readers will feel satisfied with the wonderful updates and completely mezmorized by the magic beauty and colors the fancy shapes outlying the edges. it will be way funny and whitty. it will laugh with me and cry with me and dance in a medow of golden daffadills. AND IT WILL HAVE CORECT SPELLING AND GRAMMAR AND PUNTUATION. (hero walks out and slams the door, blog cries softly to itself. lights fade slowly, run end credits. commercial)

the week in review

got home from disneyland saturday and took a break saturday and sunday, it was lovely to get off my feet for a bit. got the crew organized monday and out working and got work caught up. worked on my shed for several hours on monday and tuesday. hope to get the roof on and finish it this week. also pounded out over three thousand words on my book and its now just 51 words shy of 53000. it has been a ton of fun to write so far and I am really excited about the new stuff I have down. Heidi has been busy helping everybody every where she goes ever since we got home. and max now loves to read. of course the new deal of twenty min reading equals twenty min on the video game may be helping him love it. also got my new rc helicopter and I still have no idea who moe is.

Disneyland was awesome

Heidi and I took a trip to California all by ourselves, we hit Disneyland and California adventure and the beach and some surf shops. it was a killer cool trip. Max stayed with grandma and grandpa Christiansen so our time was not dictated by a small person with a small tummy, small bladder and short legs. we hit whatever ride we wanted as many times as we wanted, ate what we wanted when we wanted and hit the restroom when it was convenient rather than an emergency.
Tuesday we had a magic morning and got in early, we did space mountain three times in a row first thing. space mountain is my favorite ride, we also did screamin like ten times. thats my second favorite. the longest line was probably about a half hour so not too big of a deal. small world was the longest line. all in all it was a ton of fun and i would do it again but I missed max so not too soon. when he's a little bigger i'm sure we will go more often.
Kristi and Jer met us for Friday and brought Hyrum, he was a trooper and not too needy but it still changed the dynamics to have a kid around. there were a couple rides he didn't want to do but he did them anyway, way to go Hyrum.
