Why I'm Converting to Greek Mythology

That's right -- I think I am starting to prescribe to the Greek idea of the deities. They are nothing but trouble makers that like to mess around with the lives of mere humans just for fun. You don't believe me? Here is my evidence.

Whenever I work at the store, I get TONS of customers! It doesn't matter which day of the week it is, my day is the busy day. I eventually settled on working Wednesdays because statistically that day has been the slowest so far. I worked yesterday, and I had about 15 people show up! I don't know what to do with these people! I'm not a "closer." I don't know the Art of the Deal. I got two sales out of all that. Now, granted, I'm a sweetheart, so a few of them might come back, but sheesh! All I want is a little peace and quiet while I'm away from the kids for a day.

The second piece of evidence is that when Rom works, nobody comes into the store. It is torture for him to pace back and forth waiting for someone to come in. He is a people person! He is a spaz! He needs someone to keep him company. Alas, a good day for him is when he gets five people in the store. And guess what? He will typically sell all five of them! Yes, he is that good.

So, there you have it -- proof positive that the Greek gods exist and that they are very active meddling with me and Rom. I think I can hear them giggling right now.

Child Safety

Romney Jr. and I were driving in the car today. As I approached a light, it suddenly turned yellow, prompting me to hit the brakes a little more suddenly than I normally do. Instinctively, I threw my arm out in front of him.

"Mom, why do you do that?" he asked. "You do that all the time. It's weird." I then explained to him that back when I was growing up, we didn't have seat belts -- this was how a mom protected her children. "Very effective, don't you think?"

We had a good laugh together. "Thanks for the history lesson, Mom." Dang, I feel old!

CFS/ME Questions

As many of you know, I have CFS (also known as CFIDS or ME). But, I also know that CFS is baffling to most of you. This is a great video that answers a lot of questions about CFS from someone who has severe CFS. By the way, I would say I have moderate CFS - could be worse, could be better!

Valentine's Breakfast for Dinner

Whoa! Is this a little too telling? Yes, I am that far behind!

Years ago, once Kyara started seminary, I decided it was a little too much to get up at the crack of dawn and do a big Valentine's Day breakfast. However, as many of you have discovered, once you create a tradition, it is not easily terminated. My kids LOVE Valentine's Day breakfast, so we made a compromise -- I now do breakfast for dinner! Here's how it went this year (thank you to Romers for taping it!).

And besides, you need something new to look at!

You Asked For It!

That's right -- you asked for it, and now you've got it! I finally took a video of me belly dancing, and it is all here for your viewing pleasure. Or mockery. That's cool.
