Ten things NOT to say when meeting with your attorney

1. “Can you pretend not to know about my boat/car/horse/money?”
2. “My last attorney was an incompetent idiot that really screwed me over.”
3. “Um, a, would you like to go get drinks sometime?”
4. “Sorry this is an important call.”
5. “You never told me I have to make my mortgage payment.”
6. “Can I just forge his signature?”
8. “Do you have facebook?”
9. “I need this done right now.”

And my personal favorite . . .

10. “Sorry, [my daughter] has a fever and a cough so the babysitter canceled.”

Things I'll just never understand

1. How Kevin Costner has ever been billed as an actor.

2. Blow up lawn ornaments--because gnomes aren't tacky enough.

3. Runza. People (My husband) actually eat that stuff.

4. Office politics. Can't we all just do our work?

5. Created or Saved.

6. I can gain 5 pounds in one day, but take two weeks to get it off.

7. Where Human Rights Watch gets its legitimacy.

8. The minute I got married, facebook started to bombard me with healthy pregnancy/child rearing adds. As if a newlywed doesn't get it enough from real people, facebook has to get in the "you must have a child right now" mix.

9. The inability to never get out of high school. See #4.

10. American Idol beat both the Olympics and Lost this week.

Oh what fun it is to have . . . bedding that fits.

James and I have been fighting since the day Nebraska turned cold. Now, we don't argue (much) and have a pretty good marriage in the daytime, but the minute we'd go to bed the fighting would begin. There would be tugging and pulling and yes, even a little crying.

You see-- we sleep on a full bed, but since neither of us actually had full sized blankets, we just threw on all the twin sized blankets that we could find. Well, a few weeks ago, we decided we had had enough. We both had the day off and decided it was time to do some bedding shopping. Luckily we went in January when you can get bedding at amazing deals. We were so happy with the prices that we got matching drapery too.

It took a lot of shopping around, but we finally decided on this brown and green combo. Manly, yet cute. We were so happy to shed the bed of the twin sized blankets and finally put on bedding that fit. I tell you what, we've never slept so warm and there hasn't been a fight since.

I am NOT saying he's easily entertained, but give him a plain glass of milk and a chocolate straw . . .
