Can't Believe it! Tagged already...thanks Jenn! Here are some interesting (maybe) facts about the Milmonsters. Discalmer... we co-wrote this so if it sounds like the person who wrote this is a skitzophrenic thats why. We took a few pictures to document our tag blog. Hope you like them!

1) Wii enjoy playing the Wii. We aren't huge gamers or anything. (Well I might be... deep down. -hub) We love bowling and tennis and are officially pro bowlers on the Wii (this just means you get a cool ball). But out in real life the hub is the only great bowler between us both. The most memorable time in Wii land was on day 2, we where going at it, Tennis style, when all of the sudden 'Wam Bamb Doie' a jolt of pain shot up my arm. The wife nailed me a good one. I'll get even though... I only need the ideal moment. (I think the most memorable time was when I beat our brother-in-law in bowling because he is suppose to be something great! -the wife).

2) We are on a Harry Potter-a-thon. We have listened to the first five books in almost three months. It seems like any chance we get we will turn it on...doing dishes, driving, cooking dinner, or just hanging out. Just about any time except sleeping and taking a shower (the noise of the water or being unconcious doesn't help). The wife sometimes has to turn it off so we can have a desent conversation. We always watch the movie after we are done and are dreading having to wait for the last two.
3) Coco crispies is about the best cereal out there. I like the general mills cheep kind in the big bag, it has a space man with a big drill gun on the cover... its pretty cool. The only thing better than coco crispies is coco crispies smoothered in cold vit-D milk, you know the kind that sticks to the sides of the glass. However, whole milk dosent often make it from the grosher's refridgerator to the cart. So life is hard. Also I had to make a special deal that I won't eat it for a main meal. So I have to eat flavorless fiber cubes first and then i'll wash it down with coco crispies. (We are all hoping this is a silly phase the hub is going through and soon he will realize that the fiber cubes are much better for him. I think they are quite delicious. -the wife).

4) We are trying to go green in our house. We have a green table, green cups, green plates and, we are really trying to help out our environment. We changed all our light bulbs to energy saving ones. We recycle as much as the city of Laramie will let us. We traded in our SUV for an economical scooter. A very cool economical scooter. The wife takes the bus to work. We keep our house at an almost freezing point of 64 degrees. And we have some great cloth bags which we always manage to forget when we go shopping. (And we make our own shoes. j/j -the hub.)

5) For most people the alarm clock rings at 6:30 or 7:00 am. But, not in this house. But mine goes off at an early 4:45am. The hub never hears it though and I get to watch him sleep another 2 hours while I get ready for the day. He sometimes makes noble attempts to wake up at an early hour (around 6am) but mostly is still asleep as I walk out the door. Why do you get up so early? you ask. Well, I have about a 40 minute commute and everyone knows that preparation is the key to being a successful teacher (so is getting to sleep an extra 40 minutes on a dark bus). I don't mind it though. The hub lovingly refers to me as his sugar mama. I'll get him back some day.

6) Holidays, unlike most people I realized that thanksgiving dinners come in three's and four's when I got married. Its great, night before thanks giving, thanksgiving dinner, the morning of, thanksgiving dinner, the afternoon... thanksgiving dinner, and some times if I'm really lucky the day after, o yes thanksgiving dinner. At the end of the holiday I need another couple days just to hibernate. Life is good when family lives close and blueberry pies are plentiful. (This the the exact reason we decided to switch holidays with the families this year. -the wife). Which means one Thanksgiving dinner, but, at least two Christmas dinners.

7) Saturdays..."Saturday is a special day. Its a day we get ready for (the rest of the week)." Saturdays are really hectic around these parts. Since I am gone pretty much all week and the hub has school, Saturday becomes the day we do all the things we were meaning to do all week long. This is a typical Saturday....Sleep in until 7 or 8, get up and start cleaning (listening to Harry Potter of course), take a shower, get a shopping list in order, go shopping, hit the laundary mat, do some unfinished homework, squeeze a lunch in there somewhere, and then its already 5pm. We then prepare our Sunday school lesson for the next day, maybe watch a movie, eat dinner, and then go to bed. Sometimes our routine is complicated by UWYO football games or emergency Primary program practices but we always fit everything in and feel cheated out of our relaxing Saturday at the end of the day. Sundays then become lazy couch fests after church gets out.

Tradicionaly you are post to tag seven more people, however we are new to the blogging buiznezz and the few bloggers we know have all just recently been tagged. we feel kindof bad like we broke a chain letter or glass pitcher or somehting... not really

Our Wii characters got a little bored while waiting to take a picture. They are not very photogenic. This is mine, hitting the hub in the arm. He seems surprised but this is a regular occurance.
