It's gleaning time!

Oh man, these weeks seem to fly by! It's so true what they say about the older you get, the time goes by so much faster. I remember as a kid, days just dragging on and on and I thought Christmas would never get here! What does Christmas have to do with this post? Nothing. I just really like Christmas!
Anyway, I did learn a few unimportant, semi-meaningless, probably wouldn't have killed me had I never learned them, things this week. So just sick back, relax and soak it all in.

This week I learned ........

1. .....that this dove obviously thought we had no need for this ladder for a couple of months.
2. ...that Mother's Day doesn't come near enough. I liked the bit of pampering!

3. ....that I can do a spin class for 50 mins. and feel great afterwards but somehow pull something in my shoulder while getting undressed! *sigh*

4. ...that if you eat lunch at 3:00pm you aren't going to be so hungry when you and your hubby go over to a friends house for dinner 2 hours later.

5. ....that it's inevitable that if you are busy and sit down to do something, the phone will ring, the youngest will find you locked in the office and say he's hungry, and someone will come to the door, all within minutes of each other. And if you're me you'll completely forget what you were doing for the rest of the day! *sigh*

6.. .....that I won the Funniest Blog Award! I just found this out 2 mins. ago. Thank you all so much for voting for me. I'm so glad that you get some giggles from my blog. I tend to see life through goofy colored glasses and this blog has been so great at spilling it out. You gals rock and I'm so blessed by you all.

Well I think that's it for now. Either that or I just can't remember any more. I'm sure this will hold you over till next week. If you feel like gleaning more from others, head on over to Musings of a Housewife.

GREAT BIG HUGS to you all!


  1. Good morning! You learned a lot! :P

  2. Kimmy,

    Confession ... I didn't read your post...I came by to say YOU WON YOU WON YOU WON THE FUNNIEST BLOG AND I'M SO PROUD OF YOU!!!!! YAY!!!

    Love you, my friend.

    Congratulations...no one deserves it more! I thank God for your gift of laughter!

  3. Yay!! You won!! I'm so glad!

    And got my learnin' in now, so my brain should continue to function for another week! :) That pic of the dove is cool - really hope you don't need a ladder!

    Thanks for solving all my problems on my blog - LOL! I now have only that button. You should have seen last night when I had over 5 versions on there and was getting input from twitter. The latest one is much better than the first, but just not as great as I was hoping.

    Have a wonderful day! I am off to volunteer all day.

    Big filling-my-brain-with-facts hugs to you! :)

  4. I'm just impressed that you're GOING to spinning class. I seriously need to get back on the exercise bandwagon.

  5. I agree with #2~ we need Mother's Week!

  6. Yay! You won and I voted for you....I was watching the counter last night and knew you had it. Blessings!

  7. Isn't that the truth about being Superwoman in other places, then getting totally hurt doing the most lame, routine thing? Twice I've broken my big toe by turning too soon into a doorway and kicking the wall. Twice...Ha ha! Congrats on the big win!

  8. Congratulations, Funny Lady! I am so happy that you won because you certainly deserve it...you put a smile on my face and many times a big LOL!

    Keep on spinning, girl...do some for me too.


  9. Wow - I'm impressed that you spin! I aspire to try a class someday. And #5 is the story of my life. In fact, I should get OFF the computer and make myself a list before I lose all the things floating around in my head! ;)

  10. I was just asking my mom this morning where this year went? Hailey is "moving up" next friday and I feel like I missed the whole year...I was hear I swear.

  11. You think time goes fast now... think back on this thought 20 years from now! ♪

    Delightful dove depiction! The eggs take around 2 weeks to hatch. Hope you get some nice baby pics.
