Ms Funny Pants

So I bought these pants at walmart because, for some reason, Carly has a billion dresses and like 2 pairs of pants. (Incidentally, why are baby jeans almost the same price as grown up jeans!? Its like 1/4 the fabric!) See the cute little purple pants above? It was only after I put them on her that I was bugged by some funny little details. Take note, there are only pockets on the FRONT and they are square shaped and look like pockets that go to the back. I thought maybe this was a mistake and tried them on her backwards to see if it looked/fit more right. But then I noticed there is a seam line down the legs, again on the front only. These are also super low rider jeans. The top of her diaper is always hanging out, which is a pet peeve of mine. Poor kid, I'm always tugging on her pants. But she does look cute. The sweater is a hand me down and looks like new and is very soft. Gotta love the free stuff especially when it actually looks like something I would buy.

p.s. disregard th…

The uploaded quality is not nearly as good as how it appears on my computer but hopefully its not too terrible. Make sure you scroll to the bottom of my blog and turn off the music before you start the video, otherwise you will miss out on Sally DeFord's beautiful arrangement of "My Heavenly Father Loves Me".

White & Nerdy

I had heard the song but hadn't seen the video until Laci posted it on her blog. This video is hilarious and I particularly like Donny Osmond dancing along.

"Weird Al" Yankovic's music video from his new album "Straight Outta Lynwood" (in stores Sept. 26)

Just in case you've forgotten

I'd just like to state, for the record, that the blogger name "sarah" still just won't do. Although I have renamed the blog itself, for now, my id just pales in comparison to some of the other clever, catchy, kitchy, hidden meaning names I have encountered. Still burning with jealousy, still wondering just what my suitable nickname might could be, still searching.........

God didn't make them simple but He sure did make them cute

So at the end of the day, even the worst mood doesn't stand a chance against this:

And I can't fight this feeling anymore....

So help me out here, am I the only person that gets that "if I have to take this one more day I am going to cut off someone's foot and stick it up their behind!"? Well maybe not THAT exact phrase, but you catch my drift.
Now a man, sorry but its true guys, would just say its PMS or something. But the fact of the matter is, I don't get PMS that much do to that fact that I am broken - even if the Dr says everything is normal, its not. Now, before you post that "everyone gets PMS" comment, I have the normal highs and lows of any PERSON'S biological cycle (yes men, you too get hormonal); but this particular version of grumpiness has nothing to do with that. This is the "my life is in someone else's hands" version of grumpiness. I can't shake the feeling, and there are only two things I really want to do: sleep and ....ok one thing. Nothing else is even all that appealing to me. And I am avoiding sleep because once I lay down I don…

Joshua: So they are more sneaky than the squat team?

Yes, squat.

Random thoughts with no connection

So a couple things on my mind today.
First, GO TIGERS! I am a Detroit Tigers convert, and I am thrilled to see them doing so well. For the record, I've been cheering for my "home town" team since I moved here, not just starting this year. I was watching the playoff game today against the Yankees and found myself after the final out looking something like this:
In my pj's (I'm feeling a little under the weather and was too lazy to get dressed) on the couch with my arms in the air yelling "YES! WOOOOOT!" I felt pretty silly sitting there yelling by myself with Josh and Carly looking at me like I was a nut case.
Second, we heard from our adoption agency worker today. Her name is Courtney and she is fantastic. She has fought for us since she got put on this case. Unfortunately, she has had to give us bad news over and over and over and over. It helps marginally that I know she feels bad about these calls. Today she called to tell us that someone at DH…

Frustration and other happenings at 4 a.m.

So one of the things I like about my myspace page is that it lets me link music right into it so as soon as you click on to my page you know what kind of a mood I'm in that day/week/month. Why won't blogger let me do that? This whole notion of getting my music free off the internet just makes me want to scream. Let's say I reaaaaally like this new song and I want to link it and play it on my page. Basically the artist is getting a free ad from me, an endorsement if you will, at no cost. Now sure, this can be abused and what not, but if someone heard that song on my page and reaaaaaaaally like it they are more likely to buy a cd or see a show. Right? I just want to play some music on my blog!
ANYHOW, yes it is 4 a.m.
My other thought is that Yahoo! posted an article about Mormonism and polygamy. Though it was not in depth and fairly objective (only a hint of disbelief mixed in) I just goodness! I don't understand why polygamy is so hard to understand in the mod…
