Cleaned house last night. Feels good.

Got car cleaned car at this place, which was awesome, thanks to Brenna's recommendation. Those guys there rule.

Bought resistance bands from Big-5 and did all kind of exercises with them the other night. Plus a bunch of crunches. I'm super sore. On top of that, at running club last night one of the girls made us do a Pilates workout, which was HARDCORE. Probably more intense than the track workout, which was pretty hard.

Also, am going to start being really good about wearing my seatbelt thanks to this article.

Funny Things Kids Say and Do

In church on Sunday, I let each of the kids say something about their mom or what they did for their mom for Mother's Day. Most of the kids took time saying what they did for their mom, ie cleaning the house, making food, etc. When it was one of the girl's (Sarah's) turn to speak she proceeded to talk about her trip with her family to the Arctic where they played with penguins and saw seals. I asked her if she went there this weekend and she answered, no, that it was a few years ago. The kids then returned to their mom stories, and then when it was one of the boy's turns, he proceeded to say that he went to the same place as Sarah with his family and that they had gotten to train sharks.

Also, Sarah was the only kid who seemed to genuinely like the treat we brought them - figs. We tried to sell it to them as food that Jesus ate that also kind of looks like alien food, but to no avail. I guess its not a big surprise that Sarah liked them since she has already admitted to eating her boogers and liking them.

Google has been useless in answering my question if earwigs bite.

Wikipedia gave me no direct answer. However, they did let me know that earwigs don't really burrow into the brains of humans through the ear and lay their eggs. Thanks, Wikipedia. I was really worried about that.

Some website sources say they don't bite, but they can pinch. Others say they don't pinch, but they do bite. And some other sources say they don't do either but release some liquid from their abdomen that stings you. Sources also vary between their bite/pinch/sting doesn't hurt to it hurts very badly. I would say it hurt pretty bad. Worse than a bee sting.

Also, according to the Internets, they have wings?!? I guess they can fly but they prefer to travel on people and other various objects.

What a mysterious creature.

NOT FUNNY Things Kids Say

The first day we taught the kids class at church we asked the kids what some of their favorite things to do in church were. A few of the kids said Hang Man. Since Hang Man isn't a very Christian or PC game to play, we changed it to Hang Spider. When we'd play, the kids or Jared and I would choose what to hang - we've done black widows, bees, jerusalem crickets, and I think an eye ball.

On Sunday, all the kids ran ahead of us to our classroom. We had to stay behind and help one of the kids who can't walk. As we walked in, the kids were all chanting, "Let's play Hang Obama. Hang Obama. Hang Obama."

Seriously. Not. Funny.

Is it okay for me to talk to all of their parents and give them guilt trips? Their kids are all freakin monsters.

Best vampire movie ever.

Although we never actually got to finish it because NetFlix instant streaming has been so horrible lately and we finally gave up.
