Top Five Things

I saw the words Top Five somewhere on Twitter today and I was inspired to write a Top Five List.

Top Five What? Hmmm. Okay, Top Five Irksome Things This Week.

Oh, and I suppose I should go in reverse like David Letterman, huh? Cause I'm certainly as amusing as David Letterman, right?

*crickets chirping*

Whatever. Here are the Top Five Irksome Things in my otherwise idyllic life.

Number 5! Dogs sleeping on my head every night. Actually, just ONE dog - Bear. I suppose that's something to be thankful for then, isn't it?

Number 4 - Buster won't stop licking me. But at least he doesn't sleep on my head.

Number 3 - No matter how often I vacuum and sweep the kitchen, I still get crumbs on my feet when I walk barefoot. Ick.

Number 2 - My desktop computer is REALLY SLOW.

NUMERO UNO - Beloved friends have suddenly decided they don't like us, that we're the devil, and have set out to make our lives miserable with their drama. Nice.

Now, because this is a Happy Blog and I like Happy Things, here are the Top Five Happy Things to balance out the crap.

5. Our business is going GREAT!

4. It's raining today!

3. I bought two Magic Bullet blender thingies on clearance at Walgreens today for $15.49 each. That's a 75% discount, yo.

2. I found a wonderful online curriculum to use with my two big girls, and they are LOVING it!

1. We have friends who support us with prayer and spiritual wisdom when we're dealing with unpleasantness. Hallelujah!

God is in control, y'all. And I love him.

UPDATE: Nobody actually SAID we were the devil. Let's just say we're on their poop list.

The online curriculum we're using right now is Time4Learning. So far we really like it, and it's reasonably priced.

So, you gonna share that awesome online curriculum, or what?

So sorry to hear about your friends. It really stinks when that happens, especially when you can't find out the reason!

Glad to see you back and glad your business is doing well.
A few notes:

That Magic Bullet is AWESOME, and such a deal. I am jealous.

Are you homeschooling? Wow, kudos to you! Not something I could've done with out serious bodily injury to someone.

Your "friends" actually said that?? You = devil?
Hmmmm, that is not very nice. Did you perform some human sacrifice or something? ;)

Sorry to hear about the friendship difficulties. I'll be praying.

Glad to hear your business is going well. :-)

I am jealous about the Magic Bullet. I've wanted one of those for awhile. I'm going to check the nearest Walgreens. ;-)
