Just a few observations to start off the week…

- I really, really, really love not having to set my alarm clock on the weekends. I also really, really, really love when my only weekend plans include helping my twin sister + family move into town because it means I don't have to fix my hair, wear makeup, or shower regularly.

- And on that note, the Olivers have made the big move and and I still can't believe it's real!

- I now talk to my dogs the same way I talk to my children. "No, no, Buster- we don't jump on the back door," doesn't really seem to have the desired effect. Maybe if I tried the reverse (speaking to the children like I normally do to the dogs), it would result in all 4 of them actually listening to me?

- Relatedly, I've noticed that my dogs and my children have more or less the same reaction when they hear one of us opening a bag of food. And that reaction is very loud and irritating.

- I'm pretty sure you'll find about as many Texans jerseys at our church on Sunday mornings as you will at an actual Texans game. There are many things I love about going to a contemporary church, but I can't say that's one of them. I know, super judgmental of me, but to be fair, I'm not a big fan of wearing jerseys outside of attending/watching sporting events in general.

- Allison got me hooked on eating hummus and swiss cheese sandwiches for lunch, and I just have to say that I feel cheated when the piece of swiss cheese I use has more holes in it than usual.

- Based on the twins' 18-month check-up on Friday, it appears that Clara is taller than Colby- she's actually in the 72nd percentile for height and he's only in the 25th percentile!

- … but Colby is still outweighing her, by a whopping 6 ounces. (23 pounds, 4 ounces for him and 22 pounds, 14 ounces for her).

- During the appointment, the pediatrician noticed a couple of mosquito bites on Clara and for some reason, she didn't seem all that amused when I commented, "We're trying our best to contract West Nile."

- My dad has a birthday today, so please join me in wishing Dad/Steve/Pop Pop a very happy 64th birthday!

Oooooh yeah, the abundance of football jerseys would annoy me, too. For some reason, regular old team t-shirts aren't nearly as annoying or obnoxious, but jerseys are like...stop. We're not in a stadium. And hummus + swiss cheese??!?! Although I like both of those things separately, that sounds pretty revolting. What flavor hummus? What kind of bread?

Haha the Swiss cheese comment made me laugh!

Guess Dr. O wasn't in the most joking of moods? Haha.

I would try the hummus and swiss cheese sandwich except I don't like swiss cheese. Thus, the more holes it has the less of it there is that I have to eat!

Also, your comment about West Nile made me laugh!
