Weather freak out

I am a weather freak.  I check the weather dozens of times a day.  If it storms at night I stay up all night until the storm passes.  I have a plate signed by the man who was the local weatherman from my childhood on display in my kitchen.  I'm over obsessive about the weather.  I like to be in control of my surroundings and the weather is one thing that I have no control over whatsoever and it makes me feel very vunerable and uneasy.  I was 8mons preggo on bed rest when Katrina hit (we lived in South Mississippi at the time) so I have extensive history with bad storms but tornadoes are a whole other variable.  We knew Katrina was coming.  We had time to prepare (although no one was prepared for the 8days without power and gas shortages.)  We saw it coming.  With tornadoes you have no clue where they will hit and it is strictly the fickle finger of nature as to who/what gets hit and what is left untouched.  We have been forecasted for severe storms here this weekend so I'm drinking my Coke Zero and getting ready for a long night ahead of me.

I'm a BzzAgent (fantastic program I love contributing to) and as such have been given the opportunity to be a BABIES Ambassador and learn extra about the new film BABIES.  My understanding is that it follows the first year of life of four children from Mongolia, San Francisco, Tokyo, and Namibia.  It's release date is May 7, 2010.  Be sure to watch the trailer below first and then become a fan of the movie on Facebook:

The film looks amazing and reminds me how amzing children are, how amazing people are, how amazing humanity is.  It will make you want to live a more joyful (meaning FULL OF JOY) life.   Look at this picture--pure JOY!

And just for fun, check out the hilarious Jimmy Kimmel spoof here:

Just doing my job

Our 4 year old just asked me to get her a cup of “icy cold water” to go with her snack of Cheez-its.
I said “Sure.”
To which she said “I love you so much that’s why I let you work for me.”

We definitely know who's the boss at our house!
