Roxanne Our driver has been playing Michael Buble on the way up here and I woke up to that "Cuando, Cuando, Cuando" song. All I could picture was Dewey from Malcolm in the Middle singing it the whole time. haha
Rachel: Mom, this book is going to give me an anxiety attack. I keep having to stop and calm myself down. This is getting ridiculous!
Madeline, after reading our blog about our fig tree coming down: You know, you could have made a lot of jam and preserves with all those fig turds.
My reply: haha. what would I put on the label? "Fig Turd Jam"?
Madeline: Yes, then send them out as Christmas gifts.
Madeline: Just seen at the fair -- nineties old man, jeans, plaid shirt, farm hat, oxygen tube and tank on motorized wheelchair. Now here's where it gets weird - the chair has chrome skulls on the handles, strobe lights, and flames. Obviously he has been a victim of "Pimp my Wheelchair"
Me: What, no pictures?
Madeline: I'm telling you, he was fast.
Me, texting from women's conference at BYU last spring: I get to listen to the prophet. He just walked in.
(then I turned off my phone after I sent that message - really.)
When I turned on my phone later that afternoon, I read Roxanne's reply: AND YOU'RE TEXTING??? haha. cool.
Madeline: I am embarassed to say that Grant and I were just saved from a disgustingly huge flying roach by my 12 year old daughter who didn't even blink . . . sad.
Me: didn't blink? yes, sad.
Madeline: I know. She had no fear as she stalked, squished and flushed it. Grant and I screamed like . . . well . . . girls.
Roxanne: I have that Fancy Pants song stuck in my head. I have the urge to get up and start dancing too. haha
I was out of town on prom weekend. Roxanne sent me this when she got home from her hair appointment. Isn't she sweet?
This one needed no text. Joe and Madeline are in Salt Lake City picking up Drew from his mission!
Me, very late at night: Text of them you get in the dor, k? I an gong to bed.
(I meant to type, text me when you get in the door, k? I am going to bed.)
Roxanne: That was confusing haha. But yeah, I will :)
Me: See? I need to go to bed. Good Night.
Roxanne: WooWoo, I know! ( I saved this because I've never heard Roxanne say woo woo. I'm curious how she would use it out loud in conversation.)
And how could I not save these love messages from the people I love the most (and Melanie, I love you the most too and I am acknowledging your grief of not having a cell phone, and I realize you surely would entertain me with messages daily).
Rachel: Night :)
Brady: Love you. gnight
Roxanne: Love ya too, Night
Dave: I love you, I really miss you.
