Random Thoughts

First, Addi is feeling much better. Thank you for all the prayers and sweet words.

Two, as I was stuffing envelopes with Addi's birthday invites, my mind wandered to the most random things. I've tried to explain to Josh several times how my thought process works and how one minute we can be talking about something and that thing will jog my mind and take it to another 10 things that aren't relevant, but somehow I can connect them. Anyways, so I was just standing there and I started thinking about the time when I got a black eye. I was probably 12 and me and Adam had been chasing each other around the living room and I tripped and basically fell right onto our coffee table that had sharp corners. (Note to self: get guards for our table!) Anyways, the next morning it was a huge and glorious black eye. Like, legit, I just got into a fight at a bar, black eye. My mom made it worse by saying, "Hey, you look like Rocky." That was bad to tell me on two levels. One: no 12 year old girl wants to be told she looks like Rocky. Two: My dad had just explained to me who Rocky was. I was in a phase that I really like getting into characters. Don't ask. I was a weird one. Anyways, so for the rest of the day I embodied the spirit of Rocky. My take on him was, act really moody and tough and if someone asks you, "Hey where'd you get that black eye?" I would shift my stare up to them and say, "How's about you leave before I give you a knuckle sandwich." And they would slowly back away, sorry they asked. My mind then took me to thinking, man if I were my parent's, I would be terrified that some teacher would suspect child abuse was going on, especially since I decided to be moody and quiet and extra weird that day. Haha! I kinda hope Addi or any of our other future offspring decide not to be as weird as I was.

Three, it feels like fall and it is glorious!!! We are so ready to call those Hogs tomorrow!

Have a great Labor Day weekend!!!
