THEN... I grabbed "another" water bottle for the car. Took a drink mid trip only to spit it out as well! YUCKY, YUCKY, YUCKY! Have you ever tried Febreeze? Highly un-recommended! And yet I had to laugh at myself for previously laughing at my husband. Poor guy. I can't imagine the shock that must have been had I been half asleep.
So here's Justin checking AND smelling his work thermos.
PS. This is the face of someone who has worked over time ALL month! What a sweet husband! I am so happy you did it... although I'm not sure where the money went. Where did it go? Hmmm. Well I love you for it. And one day (not anytime soon) we both will find the sleep that desperately misses us!

Justin and I LOVE the summer Olympics! We love every sport, but Gymnastics and Diving... come on. Watching the Olympics encouraged diving in the Pollock family and I just think it would be fun to do all the flips in gymnastics. Truth is, I am way too tall and uncoordinated for gymnastics, so I watch. Anyway the trials are on and we are both SO EXCITED! Yay for the Olympics!

Here's Grayson sportin' his bib that says, "yes, I am a little brother and I OBVIOUSLY have older sisters". Okay it really says "Daddy's little girl". If Grayson grows up to be a mama's boy we will all know why.
We were having a little picnic while Sister Norton was in the temple.
How peaceful it is even outside the temple. No wonder my kids enjoy going!

So here's how it went. I met Jordan half way between our homes on Wednesday to drop off MacKenzie. Then he, Heidi and MacKenzie came back ALL the way to our house Saturday morning. Also they brought tons of AWESOME clothes finds for each of the kids and even a present for me! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! Here's a few pics. *Note the CUTE sailor dresses. The picture isn't fantastic, but the girls are SO cute in them.

Why do I have my camera with me at all times? (Since finding it)... Because you NEVER know who you're going to run into while you're out. This young man was a little baffled when I strolled up and asked, "would you mind me taking your picture?" I explained I'm not an expert on things, but that he looked a lot like someone on TV. Come on... you know this probably made his day. There's nothing cooler than being mistaken for a celebrity! Anyway there you have it! Right from Costco... where you can shop with the stars:)

Meanwhile... I think we're in escrow!!! We're supposed to getting an inspection this week and an appraisal after that. I'm so excited, but won't believe it done until the fat lady sings and I get the keys. So there you have it. No camera, but a home in the making.
... and another welcome to my sister Khristie to the blogging world. Click here.

Today as we got in the car it was windy. As I was running in and out of the house I heard Kennedy yelling from inside the car, "Stop it wind! Go away!" She yelled with such faith I was sure it would stop.
We are off to Taft tonight and I told her when it was dark we were going to drive to Grandma Kathy's house. So all day long she has been saying, "Sun, go to sleep! It's time for you to go to sleep! I need it to be dark!"
The other day we were eating dinner and for some reason we were talking about death. I asked her if we would ever die. She said no. The discussion then turned into a gospel essentials lesson.
Me: We are all born and we will all die. That's part of Heavenly Father's plan. And when we die we get to go live with Heavenly Father and Jesus and prophet's like Nephi and Joseph Smith!
M: So what happens when we die?
K: We go to His house.
M: Who's house?
K: Heavenly Father's house... and they have juice there and cups... and baby food... and Heavenly Father will come in a car to our house.
I think she's got it!
This evening I took all 3 kids out after 5pm! That is a HUGE deal at our house. I am a bedtime NAZI!!! Bedtime is 7pm no exceptions... unless you're trying to get all the paper work to the realtor to buy an amazing home. So there I was driving to Barstow to get Justin's signatures and then to Victorville to drop off the paper work (with a huge bounce in my step and smile on my face). I got gas, which I would have preferred to be free, but it wasn't. And while we're on the subject, wouldn't you know the minute we get our diesel fantastic car, diesel soars the highest EVER! I got a tip from a friend at church and was HAPPY to pay $4.95 a gallon instead of $5.15. And the tank was bone dry... that's right, 36 gallons of $4.95! But I only do it once a month and it still hurts. Maybe I'll take up road biking, in the wind, with 3 children, hmmmm...
The point of the story was while getting gas Kennedy pointed to the fast food whatever and said, "hey, I want to go to that eater!" I just thought it was funny. Laugh if you will or not, but there you have it.
