The Nova

My best friend Amy has been with her husband Billy since high school. I met them both when I was a junior. At the time Billy had the sweetest car in the world...a Chevy Nova. This car was seriously the coolest thing ever and we had so many great memories that involved it that I wanted to write a post about it to pay tribute to that great piece of machinery.

To give you a little visual the Nova was Ferrari red. The ceiling was falling apart so at any moment random fuzz, drywall type material would fall into your hair, in your eye or even better in your soda if you didn't have a lid on it. One time we were downtown Milwaukee and ran over a road barrier and dragged it about 20 feet, it was sparking and catching fire, but the Nova pulled it along like it was a semi. There are many great stories like that but, all of our favorite activity to do that involved the Nova was hitting shopping cart in the local Walmart parking lot. That's right, Billy would find lonely shopping carts, position the Nova behind them and then slowly and steadily increase his speed. When they were rolling pretty fast he would slam on the breaks and we would all laugh as the shopping carts went flying.

So here's to you Nova, we all really miss you...

Daylight savings time

What is the point in daylight savings time? If the point is to make me crazy and make me want to throw myself off a bridge then fine. Daylight savings time is always horrible but it is even worse when you have little kids. It makes the witching hours of 4-6 even worse. Yesterday I put both the kids in the bath for an hour just because I didn't know what else to do. Who made this up anyways? I bet it was a single man, that's who because if he had kids he wouldn't have done it. So daylights savings time, I hate you.

Sister Wives

When I heard that TLC was going to have a new reality show called "Sister Wives" which showed the everyday lives of a polygamist family I knew I had to watch. What I didn't expect was that after watching it that I would somehow understood where these women were coming from. They only have to deal with their husband once every 4 days, they ALWAYS have someone to pawn their kids off on, AND there is someone else who cooks for you. Doesn't sound like that bad of a deal to me....
