Just for Fun

I found the muppet test on another bloggers site and thought it was fun.....I am passing it on to you and adding a few more...You can decide if they are right about me or not.
You can find these tests and many more at

I did the muppet test twice with the same result....sigh....

Famous bloggers get free trips!

I feel like I might be obsessing. Did you know famous bloggers get free trips! And sometimes they get paid? For being a glorified editorial writer......I want to get paid to post my opinion and some pictures of my family and friends! Then I won't have to find a part time job.
One other note, and then I'll move on to something new...while reading the blog of a famous blogger I came to realize something very interesting. I am happily Mormon, and that is weird. At least according to this famous blogger. She is a "recovering Mormon", as she puts it, and she felt that she was forced to live a guilty, repressed life as a Mormon...Just typing these words I am inviting all kinds of weird ads and spam to post itself on my blog but I'll take the risk. Being Mormon doesn't mean you can't do anything fun. Being Mormon means you are free to experience the joy of life while not drunk, vomiting, smelling of cigarettes, or wondering if the last person you slept w…

Infamous is better than famous...

So, I suddenly realize that my blog isn't famous. It's not even very well read. I mean, Jenn and Jen are the only ones that ever comment....aside from those annoying "hey great blog, if you ever want to buy something from me visit my site www.whywouldIbother.yaright (I can't believe that self-hypertexted itself!) So it makes me think, how do I get my blog to be famous? I mean, some of them gets hundreds of comments from hundreds of people. Do I need to curse more? Perhaps I should take up some sort of cause.....guess I'll have to think on it. In the meantime, you all (the two or three of you out there reading this) spread the word about my blog. Heck, you can even say "Want to read something really boring? Go to Sarah's blog!" I won't mind.
As a side note, if you ever want to see how really weird people are click on the "Next Blog" tab on the right hand side of the screen. Prepare to avert your eyes just in case because some…

In uncertain times

Life this week was rough. That is an understatement. Just imagine your worst day and magnify that about a thousand times. That was this week for me.
And yet, I am so thankful. I am so grateful to have Josh, forever and always, and no one can take him away. I am so glad for the glimpse of Carly I have been given. Her sweet and gentle spirit takes my breath away and I can't imagine living life without her, although I might have to. Even a moment with this precious girl is a gift. I am so glad to have a husband that loves me, that works so hard for his family, that would never raise his hand to me, or hurt my children, or betray me. I am so lucky to have parents that think I'm great and siblings that think I'm worthwhile. I am so amazed to have loyal friends that make up for the ones that aren't. I am unbelievably blessed to have a usually joyful life, and I am glad to know that after rain the sun comes out again. Even in Michigan.
