Nothing Much

I am currently reading a book entitled If Life Were Easy, It Wouldn't Be Hard and other reassuring truths. for those of you that are hard core LDS, you know that this is a Sheri Dew bestseller. I got this book for my birthday awhile ago from a friend and I have been reading it off and on. It sits on my dresser and I see it everyday, but what I can not figure out is what is so reassuring about life being hard? I am 1/2 way through that book and I don't feel any better or reassured that life is not a cake walk in the park! Give me some insight here please.

Matt is watching Amanda Jones' Bar J Wranglers dvd for the second time tonight. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Bar J's, but he does like to go overboard. As I sit here, fresh out of the shower, eating 10 mini Snickers my friend Sarah brought me, typing, and listening to the Bar Js sing while my kids are in bed, I wonder - Can life get any better?

One more thing, I have found my anti drug. I found it today. I have some friends that like to go get a slushie, my husband and daughters LOVE Slurpees, and I have never EVER been tempted nor enjoyed those little pieces of cold sugared heaven - until today. I hit a Sonic on my way home from Provo today and got a strawberry fruit slushie. Holy smack! It was so good! I took a few nice big tugs on the straw on my way out of the parking lot and thankfully had to wait at a stop light for a minute because I had a MAJOR brain ache AND a chest ache. I was truly immobilized for a 1/2 minute! It was wonderful! What else could make me feel so horrible for 30 seconds AND then quench my thirst for something cold and fruity the rest of the way up the canyon? My new anti drug - Sonic fruit slushies!

I've tried to read that same book and have the same issue with it as you do. So hopefully someone else will have some insight into this!
I love slushies! I became addicted to them in the Bahamas. Glad you found a good guilty pleasure!

Brian loves Dairy Keen slushes and gets a supersize one on Tuesday's along with his 'triple cheese burger.' Now that I have swallowed the vomit down I have to admit the slushies are my favorite. I alway, even with Brian's warnings, get a Brain freeze. EVERY TIME!!! They are just so good. He always tells me "little sips you are going to hate it in a min."
-Side note: I remember my Brother telling me that his roomates once had a contest to see who could get the worst Brain Freeze! College intelligence!!!!

You and Taylor could get along great. She loves slushies and snow cones in the summer and hot chocolate in the winter.
Side note: try to say slushie with a lisp--that's the hardest word ever to say in lisp!!

So was is the Strawberry limeade slushie? My neighbor brought me one when right after I had Kade-- fabulous to be introduced to something so great, but terrible to know it exists and so now I think I NEED it. ;)

Hey Rach!

I've tried to send you an e-mail but it keeps coming back as undeliverable. I think I might have the wrong one. Can you e-mail it to me?

Hey...I hope you enjoyed the snickers! Thanks again for your help with the dress :) You're a jem!
