Are you ever afraid that one day you are just going to snap?  JUST PICK A MOVIE!!!! Surely you must have some idea of what you want to watch.  Seriously people, do you need to read every stinkin' movie description that Redbox has to offer?  I will answer that question for you.  You don't.

There I stood behind one couple (and their super cute little boy) for what seemed like an eternity.  They chose a movie, paid, she grabbed for it, then decided she wasn't done.  She looked at more descriptions.  This is not how Redbox works.  You can chose multiple movies, and pay for them at the same time.  ARRGGHH!

I understand that it is only a buck.  I totally get that, but have a little decency.  I think when you go to Redbox, if there are people behind you, take no more than three minutes.  They have a website with all the same information, use it before you go.

I was behind those people for 12 minutes(don't judge, I really wanted to see; Oz: The Great and Powerful)...and they didn't even have the movie I wanted!

Katherine Joy

These are pictures from my visit with Katherine.  All of the kids got along really well.  No fights the whole visit!  They were really good in church.  (Except for Mallory who screamed, as I threw her over my shoulders like a sack of potatoes, "I want my stickers, I want my daddy!")  You're welcome, by the way, to our entire ward for the entertainment.  When you have no less than 9 people comment, you know you did not escape without anybody seeing your stellar parenting at work.

 You know when all the kids are sad that company has left, it was a good visit.

 Katherine and I have been friends since we were three and four, respectively.  It was so nice to see her again, and be able to visit with her family.  I am so happy they were able to come stay for a couple days.

There are so many things wrong with this picture.
                                                         To "simplify" this, I would:
                                                             1. Make it one piece.
                                                         2.Paint it all the same color.
                                           3.Not make the "I" a flower, that would be
                                                  in and of itself an entire project.
                                                   4.How about not make this sign,
                                        which would actually simplify my life even more.

Hey, I Can Do That!

I am somewhat of a tightwad.  When I saw that the cheapest I could purchase a 12x12 in cube was $9, I started trying to come up with something else I could do.  Because, are you kidding me?  I was walking past the office supplies aisle of the store, and this is what I came up with:

I know it looks like one of them does not have a handle, but David wanted a special skateboard handle.

This was a super easy project, and the best thing is that each cube only cost about $1.50!
