50 things I learned this weekend

1. Don't throw up in the bathtub. (I am not pregnant)

2. Don't throw up in the bathtub when the drain is clogged.

3. Don't put off de-clogging the drain in the bathtub. Do it. Do it now.

4. I may never eat a hamburger again.

5. I may never eat cake again.

6. I may never eat again.

7. Tyson cleaned the bathtub.

8. And the toilet.

9. Tyson is a good man.

10. Tyson still loves me after all that.

11. I beat Tyson in mini golf.

12. Mini golf is fun if you are winning.

13. Hole no. 12 messed me up though.

14. It messed Tyson up worse.

15. I watched 3 movies on Sunday

16. I felt like I was watching x-men for the first time.

17. I'm not good at remembering movies I guess.

18. August Rush and Finding Neverland both feature the same kid.

19. It made it seem less real.

20. Printing coupons from the internet seems like a good idea.

21. Until the printer doesn't work.

22. But the internet thinks you printed your one allotted coupon.

23. So now you are frustrated and determined to beat the system.

24. And you spend 35 minutes rewiring cables to make it work.

25. All for $3.50.

26. It was worth it.

27. We fought the internet and we won.

28. I think.

29. We waited longer than 1 min at the best buy in-store pickup so we got $10 back.

30. Which made our purchase of x-men III only $2.99.

31. Plus we got a free movie ticket to x-files.

32. We fought the best buy and we won.

33. Don't judge me for wanting to see x-files.

34. It's hard to crochet for 10 hours straight.

35. I have calluses from crocheting.

36. I may never finish the blanket I am working on.

37. So sad.

38. Family Circus isn't funny.

39. Does anyone think that it is?

40. It's ok if you do.

41. Maybe it's just me.

42. I don't think I can make it to 50.

43. This has gone on way too long.

44. Has anyone even read this far?

45. 45 is a good number too. Better than 50. I'll stop here.

See what I mean?


  1. I have two things to say:
    1. I am dying to see the X Files movie because I love anything remotely science fiction.
    2. I don't think that Family Circus is supposed to be funny. I think that it is supposed to be touching, but that always bothered me. Don't be in the 'funnies' section unless you are going to be FUNNY!

  2. I love reading your blog, Mari. You have such good ideas about what to write about. And your stories are personal and let your readers learn about you. You tell stories with a great humor and whit. Thanks for sharing a bit of you - it always makes me smile.

    Oh, and I agree with the ever being sick disclaimer, "I am not pregnant." Can't a married woman (especially one without kids yet) be sick without EVERYONE assuming that she's pregnant? None-pregnant women get sick too!
