I have always heard that you should never go to the grocery store when you're hungry. Well, I made the mistake today of going to Walmart to do my grocery shopping after I hadn't eaten anything all day!! (Other than a doughnut for breakfast) So at 5:30, my stomach is growling, I'm dizzy, shakey, and my mouth is watering at everything I see. My whole shopping experience happened in a fog and before I knew I was checking out. So......$150 later, I think the only complete meal I had in my cart were oero's and milk.

Now this is more like it.....nice, cheery, springy....I thought it was cute.
Now this is a bird feeder, made out of an old milk jug, Reagan made in her class. They stuck a bunch of foam stickers on it and they even gave her a little bag of bird seed too....bless their hearts. I think I'm going to hang it up next to the Soda Can Wind Spinner my dad gave me.

This year I will be turning 29. Twenty-nine! I'm holding on to my "late twenties" with all I've got! I can't believe it. I still feel like I'm 22, so to take the current year and subtract it to the year I was born...and come up with 29.....there's no avoiding it. It's coming.....29 then 30 then 31 then 32....you get the picture. I started to notice things in my life that has made me realize that I am indeed not 22 anymore. First of all....I have kids! I am in charge of the well-being of little kids. I have to provide for them.....feed them....dress them....wipe their bums....dry tears....clean up throw up......and I'm the one who has to kill spiders for them. I never thought the day would come for that! My mom killed all the spiders for us! I don't even know what I will do if I have to kill a cockroach! EEEWW! So, I'm getting older!
I am in the Young Womens program....which means I'm not a young woman.....you have to be 12-18 years old for that. And I catch myself saying...."What are they thinking...?" or "When I was that age...." I CHAPERONED a youth Dance and I kept telling Chris that my feet hurt and the music was too loud. HUH??? I also remember dancing with Tia at church dances and I know we looked cute! Not anymore....I tried dancing....I think I look like the leaders that tried dancing at my youth dances back then.
My television habits have changed. I used to watch MTV and VH1 all day! Never missed Real World (Seattle's my favorite!...followed by Hawaii....then New Orleans) or Road Rules. Not anymore. Those channels are COMPLETELY different now. Now I TiVo Designed to Sell and House Hunters on HGTV and I watch TLC. I do have my shows like House, American Idol, The Office, Project Runway, and Lost that keep me up-to-date.
By far, the thing that made me realize I'm getting older was that one day Ryan asked me to do a cartwheel for her.....and I did......and I pretty much almost broke my wrists and I stretched every muscle in my inner thighs. I also got really dizzy and I felt nauseous. I think I should start taking Boniva. Man...is it hot in here??? Uh oh...here comes menopause!

The petting zoo was free and you could pay two dollars to feed the animals. The girls really enjoyed it. I think they were in there for about half an hour.
This picture above is us looking at the pigs. We've been reading Charlotte's Web to the girls and Ryan was excited to find Wilbur, Charlotte, and Templeton. She said she did find them.
