Anyone Else Have A Kid That Naps At The Pool?

 

Being the third kid is exhausting!  Do you have a child that wants to go, go, go all the time, but can't keep up?

My youngest daughter Piper tries to keep up with her sisters, but can't do it and has been falling asleep in odd places this summer.  That pic is what happens when Piper goes to the pool.

Here Are Some Words We Should Stop Saying At Work

Amazeballs.  What in the heck is that anyway?  Who started it?  It's on the list of words we should stop saying at work. Good!

What else?

I'm an over-user of the word awesome, I'll admit it.  The experts say we need to quit saying "awesome" so much because it makes us look not as smart as those who don't use it.  Really?  Dumber than the amazeballs users?  Okay, I'll own it.  Actually, any of the same words used over and over might show  a lack of creativity.  Okay, okay.

Grilling This Weekend? Here Are Some Not-So-Helpful Tips.

Have you ever cleaned your grill with an onion?  Me neither!  A top grilling tip is to cut the onion in half and use the flat side to scrub and clean the grill instead of using a scraper. Onion lovers are high-fiving on that idea.  But wouldn't it make you cry?

Another top grilling tip is to microwave the meat before you stick it on the grill.  It speeds up the process, and basically allows you to do all the major cooking inside, and just the finishing touches on the grill.  Kinda defeats the purpose of grilling since you don't get to stand around and drink beverages with your grilling mates and I wonder if it would make the food taste rubbery.  But okay!

World’s Passion For Soccer Is Just As Cool As The Matches Themselves

Are you a fairweather soccer fan?  I'll admit it.  I am.

I got really into the World Cup in 2006, and I watched again in 2010, and I'm trying to catch it now whenever I have some down time.  And I love it!  But I'll fairweather myself in another few weeks and quit watching soccer I'm sure.  Why do we do that?  The world is super-passionate about soccer, and that's fun to see.  Soccer unites people.

ESPN says Sunday's soccer match between the US and Portugal was the most non-football telecast ever.

Dad Gets a Smartphone and Learns to Text

My mom got my dad an iPhone for Father's Day, and my first text from Dad arrived Monday.

He needed a day or so to figure out how to text on this "newfangled thing," but once he figured it out he didn't mess around with just words.  He sent me a pic!  Of my grandma's 1980-something Buick.  And he didn't say a word about it, just the pic.

This is going to be a wild texting adventure with Pop.

People Who Insert “Like” and “You Know” Into Sentences Are Thoughtful And Smart!

Surely you know someone that's a "like" overuser and inserts it into places where it would be fine if it was, like, not there.  You know?

I read something today that said people who are constantly inserting the words and phrases "like," "you know," and "I mean," are not ditzy and immature if that crossed your mind.  In fact, they may be more thoughtful than everybody else.

I had a friend once who would constantly say as the conversation was dying down, "I don't know, you know?"  Actually, she had the amazing overall ability to plop in a record number of "you knows" in any sentence.  I swear she could pack ten of those things into an eight word sentence.  It drive me insane!  But perhaps she was onto something.
