A Rant.

Why do people who push their way through traffic give you the Thank You wave? I mean they literally inch inch inch forward into a space that is obviously not meant for them, by being to small for their huge car, forcing you to stay put and block other lanes. Then they smile and give you the wave!!! It's like someone cutting in the middle of a line by nudging and bullying you out of the way and then smiling and saying thank you like you just did this big favor for them!!!!!!!!! AAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!

On a happier note I declare that I LOVE dirt roads and paths!!! I love the sound it makes on the tires and on my shoes. I know that might be weird but it's such a happy yummy sound for me that it's almost therapeutic to hear it. I also love back roads. They're more fun to drive on and usually have less lights which is preferable. Thats one of the things that draws me to small towns. They also have less traffic or sidewalks which make it possible to walk in the street:)

I went to check on Ruth during her nap and this is what I found. She had fallen asleep sitting up:)

Back Pack Baby.

And a very helpful baby. Putting the power supply in the computer was no problem for Mike and his Side Kick The Ruthie.

The Biz

I surf regularly for new recipes so today I went into my account, which is free and allows me to tag recipes I like, and organized them to coincide with my meal planning menu. I arranged it by day and type ie. Tuesday-Asian or Tuesday-Italian etc.
Now I can go to a specific day and browse like I would a cook book and makes the process faster.

Note: I never use an online recipe unless it's been rated by at least 50 people and has 5 stars, an idea I got from my sis-in-law Lauren, because I was sick of making stuff that ended up not being good.

We are currently in Wash. DC visiting with Mike's brother Rob, Mike's cous. Hunter and our buddy B. Stock. The weather is CRAZY!!!!! Tornado warnings and rain-rain-rain. This is now my 4th or 5th time here and I have to say certain parts of DC would be super fun to live in!!! The neighborhood Hunter lives in is kinda shaby chic. The Apts are super stacked and close but so cute with their teeny tiny plant yards and within walking distance of anything you could want. I would live there in a heart beat!!!! I will also say Maryland is beautiful state. Rolling green hills with farm houses a few acres apart is ideal and the area Rob's in-laws live in is just that and only 30 minutes from Baltimore.

Ruth has 7 teeth and crawls.

Interesting Article

This is an interesting article a columnist wrote about her obsession with Mormon Mommy Bloggers. She's not LDS but she finds herself reading them everyday. Read it, it's interesting.

"I'm a young, feminist atheist who can't bake a cupcake. Why am I addicted to the shiny, happy lives of these (Mormon) women?"
