(no subject)

So if you checked in on this blog this weekend, you saw the message below saying that we're in the progress of switching it (and my entire website) over to Wordpress. What does this mean, you ask? (I did too!) Well, for now it means that I've had to turn off comments here, but in the long run it really means the blog will just be at a different URL address, which I WILL link to from here. So hopefully you won't notice too much of a difference...other than the fact that I may be more excited to blog, because I am told it will be MUCH easier. And we'll still have comments, you'll just have to leave them here instead of on LJ. Okay?


So, two things to share before I get back to...well, mostly dyeing Easter Eggs, which my kid is obsessed with. But I have to tell you about this. Now, I know just about EVERYONE is familiar with the phenomenon that is "Friday," the song by Rebecca Black that is both terrible and insanely catchy all at once. It's been in the news forever, it's basically over, but I say "just about everyone" because my husband, who I know doesn't live under a rock, had never heard of it. So in case you, too, have better things to do than keep up with annoying internet trends, you can watch the video here.

Why am I writing about this, you ask? Because this weekend, one of my babysitters shared this . Yes, that IS my daughter singing "Friday." No, I did not teach it to her. The blame apparently goes to babysitter Kelsey, although I have yet to get official confirmation about this. Now, this is a child who I have been trying to teach to say "Please," and "Thank you," for MONTHS now. I am like a broken record, and it's still totally hit or miss whether she does it. But this, she apparently picked up instantly. Sigh.

I can't really judge, though, as I AM the one who named her Barbies Snooki and JWoww, names that have, to my horror, actually stuck. Oh, I'm too embarrassed to keep writing about this at all.

Oh, oh, but here's something good, though! Remember what my goal was for this weekend?

I did it! I was terrified but I picked up that chicken. And then I picked up three more. Like it says at the beginning of Just Listen, "The best way out is always through." Now, I have to conquer everything ELSE I am afraid of. Like Wordpress.....

Have a good evening, everyone!
