There you go. I have opened up the door for you all to tell me how I should be parenting and what I'm doing wrong.
I have had a system in place for about a year, but I do wonder if there is a better way. So please feel free to share what works for your family or what does not work.

It is fairly reasonable to say that I am addicted to these sites:
The Pioneer Woman and The Pioneer Woman Cooks
Now go check them out, and then decide that there are much worse things in the world that I could be addicted to!
Oh yeah, I made this last night for dinner! It was soooooo deliciously, fabulous. Probably more delicious and fabulous because both of my kids had dinner at a birthday party last night, and so I made it for just Dave and I after the boys were in bed, and we dined in the living room while watching American Idol. Now what could be more fabulousious than that? (other than having yummy leftovers to serve for dinner tonight!)
One more thing, if you have a few hours start by reading this. (yes I said hours, I started at 11pm and finished just before 2am. Dumb I know. You may want to start earlier or split it up into smaller sessions) You will laugh and you will cry. Well, I laughed and cried, maybe you won't.

A little unusual weather excitement today. We had a tornado touch down today in a neighborhood about three miles from our house and about 1/2 a mile from my office. I was sitting at my desk when I saw the BLACK clouds approach, and very quickly we were in a storm that eerily reminded me of my time spent in Georgia. It was over as fast as it started, and it was not until it was over that we heard the tornado warning on the radio. Thankfully there are no reports of injuries, but there are a lot of damaged houses and a commercial building that had an entire exterior brick wall sheered away.

I just wanted to remind all my readers (I know you're out there!) to please keep praying for our friend Luke. His story was front page news in The Columbian newspaper today. I am constantly amazed at how his family is using this trial in their life as an oppurtunity to bring glory to God. Please continue to pray for Luke as he prepares for his bone marrow transplant (his donor is his 9 year old brother Jake!), for wisdom for the doctors treating him, and continued strength for his family.

No pressure, just things I would like to do before I kick the bucket. This is just a start. I am sure that this list will grow.

THE TRICK IS TO FIND THE MAN IN THE COFFEE BEANS:
This is bizarre - after you find the guy - it's so obvious. Once you find him - it's embarrassing, and you think, Why didn't I see him immediately?
Doctors have concluded that if you find the man in the coffee beans in 3 seconds, the right half of your brain is better developed than most people. If you find the man between 3 seconds and 1 minute, the right half of the brain is developed normally. If you find the man between 1 minute and 3 minutes, then the right half of your brain is functioning slowly and you need to eat more protein If you have not found the man after 3 minutes, the advice is to look for more of this type of exercise to make that part of the brain stronger!!! And, yes, the man is really there!!!
I found him immediately, but I'm not sure what it means if your right brain is better developed.............maybe it means you're a little nuttier then the next person? Leave me a comment on how long it took you to see him.
