Tips for Better Living

Today I recieved these 7 simple tips for better living and thought I'd pass them along.

1. If you are choking on an ice cube simply pour a cup of boiling water down your throat. Presto! The blockage will instantly remove itself.

2. Avoid cutting yourself slicing vegetables by getting someone else to hold while you chop.

3. Avoid arguments with the Mrs. about lifting the toilet seat by using the sink.

4. For high blood pressure sufferers: simply cut yourself and bleed for a few minutes, thus reducing the pressure in your veins. Remember to use a timer.

5. A mouse trap, placed on top of your alarm clock, will prevent you from rolling over and going back to sleep after you hit the snooze button.

6. If you have a bad cough, take a large dose of laxatives, then you will be afraid to cough.

7. You only need two tools in life - WD-40 and Duct Tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

Daily Thought:
Some people are like Slinkies: not really good for anything, but they bring a smile to your face when they are pushed down the stairs.

Congratulations graduates!

Aaron, ahhhhh- kid with tassel on the wrong side, Eric Frekelton and Kasey Kennet. I guess this is the end of a generation of Spendloves going through the D.

I'll give you three guesses as to who these 3 are. hint- the one with the pained expression is the graduate.

"we're goin' to Disneyland!"

A.J. & friends ready to load the bus for the big Senior Trip to Disneyland. They get to a motel tonight around 8 pm, spend Friday at the park, and party until 6am ( if I heard right), sleep a few hours and load the buses Sat. morn for the ride home. No 'Arabian nights' or gardner center for these kids, - it's mickey mouse all the way, plus a little goofy.


Remember when AJ was just a little tyke and we called him Akron Jamaal and hung him over the stair rail and threatened to take him to the Man Village and he was too little to fight back? ahhhhh, good times. But now he's all grows up and he's all growed up and he's graduating from high school. wow--the end of the Spendlove Legacy at Dixie High. Nice job bringin up the rear, Aij.

Welcome to the Man Village

Seminary Graduation

Aaron James Spendlove II, Jonny, JK and Tanner. Guess I should have stood on the other end of this line to have the cutest boy 1st. AJ did a great job on his talk. And he looked mighty handsome!

guess I'll have to add the other picture later, it's decided to quit. So Ang, when do you want to pick up your little brother from the airport? He's available pretty much any time after the 29th, well except for Youth Conference and Helamans camp. Both of which he would be devastated if he missed.

This is the picture that A. J. liked, but I messed up and printed the wrong ones- he wasn't a happy camper. So here it is, cute huh? He's a good lookin kid, but way too young to be out of high school.

Ballard Designs

Hey mamita, i don't know how i ended up on their mailing list, but I got a catalog from a company called Ballard Designs. I saw this office armoire and thought it was so pretty and wondered if you are still looking for one...?

It is also available in Cream but they don't have a picture of that color; if you go here, you can get a description of what it looks like.

Chubby bubby

Ang was totally crying about no new pics of Whit so she bossed me about posting some new here ya go boss hoggermuffin.

Babies are hazzardous to your sanity...

I am know that with each pregnancy I have lost friend calls the disease "placenta brain".
Today I had to go to Sears to get a part for the fridge. It was raining like crazy so I grabbed the stroller, put the baby in and we ran inside. Then I decided to walk around the mall ( it was a lot better than being out in the cold rain). Well, an hour and a half later I go out and there is my van, sitting in the pouring rain with the back hatch open! DUHHHHH! I am an idiot.
I might be a little less hard on myself if this was an isolated incident, but unfortunately it isn't.
I cant even count how many times I have locked my keys in the car in the past 9 months. I finally got a hide-a-key but left it at home on the counter... oops. During dinner one night, instead of putting a plop of sour cream on my chili, I plopped a bunch of chili IN the container of sour cream. One day I drove away from the Wendy's drive up without the food, but after I had paid. And last week, I went to the grocery store TWICE without any money.... and didn't realize it until i had been there for an hour and had 80 dollars worth of groceries already bagged.
So if you have any idea on how to regrow brain cells I would much appreciate it. Especially since I think that more and more of them are dying each day....

Show Me The Monkey!!

When I left for work today Tye was laying on the couch watching Curious George. I've always thought that was such a cute monkey but today I thought, "Hey, that looks like Whit!"

What do you think? Do you agree?

They have the same nose! So cute!! For Halloween, Whit can be George and Jake can be the Man in the Big Yellow Hat.
