This post brought to you by the letter "B"

Brother has really gotten in to rhyming lately. He wants to rhyme words all the time. So I'll just throw a word out here and there.

Hey brother what rhymes with......coat? He answers boat!

What rhymes with car? Bar!

What rhymes with dad? Bad!

What rhymes with house? Bouse!

What rhymes with kiss? Biss!

See the pattern here!? LOL Every word he picks starts with "B". And if you give him a B word to start with he just looks like the gears in his brain are going to blow.

Although, yesterday he finally got a word that didn't start with B, so I think he's starting to really get it! I just love watching my kids learning and figuring stuff out.

Are you Superstitious?

I was thinking about this today for some reason. Superstitions and all the crazy stuff people will do if they are.

Am I superstitious? My first instinct is to say NO WAY! But I thinking about it I realize I am after all. I don't do the "knock on wood" or throwing the salt over my shoulder stuff. Which shoulder is it anyway? And why throw it over your shoulder? But I guess I do have my own quirks.

For example:

If I have something at work that could possibly become a problem I won't throw any notes away that I might have about it. Sometimes I keep files out for weeks thinking if I put them away I'll jinx it for sure.

When dh's dad died I was wearing jeans, a red sweatshirt, white socks and tennis shoes. I would never wear that exact same outfit again, it just seemed too much like tempting fate or something I guess.

If I have something that is a potential problem, I make sure and not vary my routine on the day I have to face it. Especially my driving. If I have a possible crisis at work I will usually make sure I drive to work the exact same way as I do every other day.

What about you? Anything you do or won't do that would be considered superstitious?

My MIL's brother once backed up an entire city block because a black cat walked out in front of his car! Crazy!

*ok, re-reading my post, I don't sound superstitious so much as just sounding like a freak! LOL

Friday Photo

Here's a picture of my church for my Friday Photo. My church was founded in 1897, so it's 110 years old! I love my church.

Thirteen things!

Thirteen Things about ME!

I realized I haven't done an "introductory" post about me on the few Thursday Thirteen posts I've done.

1. My name is Kim

2. I live in Oklahoma, just 3/4 of a mile from where I grew up.

3. I am left-handed.

4. I have had the same job for 15 years.

5. I've been married for 16 years (17 in March)

6. I am the janitor at my church and also teach Sunday School. And about to become the president of our woman's group.

7. I am on the school board at my dd's school.

8. I have 2 kids, a girl and a boy.

9. I love to read celebrity gossip blogs.

10. I loathe doing dishes with the intensity of 1,000 suns. And it shows. Don't drop by unexpectedly, please.

11. I hate being cold. I get bitchy and whiny when I get cold. It's not pretty.

12. I love to read.

13. I put stuff off way too much. Instead of dealing with stuff right away, I stew and worry about for days if not weeks.

So, there you go!! 13 things about little ol' me.

You know you are boring when you get excited about..........

new toilets. and a screen door.

We got 3 new toilets for our house recently. Our other ones wouldn't flush right, turns out the part the paper went down wasn't glazed. So we got new ones.

And our new house didn't come with a screen door so we got one and dh put it on. We were both thrilled.

What have we become?

Ok, I'm in too!

I guess it's my turn to write a "Happy New Year" post to all my friends that live in my computer.

I can't help but feel hopeful about 2008! 2007 was great to me on a personal level but horrible at work. Not because of anything that happened to me, it was just such a disaster year for the whole state (farmers), it was a busy and stressful year for everyone.

2008 is the year I get my act together! Like I said on Terri's blog, I want to get more grown up about my money. I am an adult and it's time I started acting like one!

*says the person who charged a chair and love seat yesterday! But they were on sale! and a year of no payment and no interest! And we will get them paid off before the year is up! Promise!

Whoa, got a little distracted on that point didn't I??

Anyway, I want to wish all my friends a very happy, healthy and satisfying new year.

If 2007 was not the best for you, I hope 2008 is better.
If 2007 was great for you, I hope 2008 is fantastic.
If you were hurting in 2007, I hope 2008 brings healing to you.
If you suffered a loss in 2007, I hope 2008 brings you the ability to smile again through the tears, happy memories instead of sad.
If you were struggling in 2007, I hope 2008 brings you peace.

Happy New Year!
