Heard on the Radio

I heard this on the radio this morning; thought it was funny and somewhat true:

Happiness is only the first hour after the alleviation of some especially intense misery.

Nobody wants Big Ben?

Big Ben just happens to be the number 2 fantasy player in the league. Zak so callously looked down on Big Ben (21 points) when he personally played Joe Flacco (7 points). Next week Big Ben will probably become number 1, but Zak will still try to convince people not to trade for him.

A Lesson in Being Chaste

In our primary, they are encouraging the children to learn the Articles of Faith. (It's a good idea for everyone!) Griffin has done the 1st...easy, learned the 2nd but didn't pass it off yet. Today at lunch, he asked:

Griffin: Do you know the last article of faith (I didn't know he knew enough to ask that question.)

Mom: yes

Griffin: say it

Mom: so, I began the best I could...We believe in being honest, true, chaste, benevolent, virtuous, and in doing good to all men; indeed, we may say that we follow the admonition of Paul - We believe all things, we hope all things, we have endured many things, and hope to be able to endure all things. If there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report or praiseworthy, we seek after these things."

Griffin: A member of our family is in that article of faith!!

Mom: hmm - what is he talking about??

Kylie: Griffin, it is NOT CHASE, it talks about being CHASTE!

I love how Griffin's brain works.

Do You Hear Bells??

Has anybody in the history of our family fantasy football ever gone this long without a loss in the beginning?

I'm pretty sure no.

Go Raiders.

Note For School Absence

Zak and Quinn needed a note to excuse their absence when we were in Utah. Here is my creation:

Zachary Cole [and Quinn]was absent on Mon and Tues (9/28 – 9/29). We were in Utah supporting an AHS 2002 graduate, (my son), in defending his thesis. He did great; he now has a Masters in IT.

Julie Cole

I am sure the office is delighted to see that my children are absent so they can look forward to reading one of my creative, non boring notes. I am happy to oblige.
