That WAS going to be my theme for the year. Feelin' Fine: with my outer appearance, with my clothes, with my teaching, with my blog, with my determination to never volunteer to be both art mom AND room mother for my son's class ever again. With my coolness. I was happy....for 7 days. THEN I discovered that our neighbors are these awesome genius actors and musicians and that they made a fairly awesome movie right here in Rexburg. Not only did they make the movie, but they also composed songs for it, and made two real music videos to go right along with them. What the . . . ? I am completely nonplussed. All this time I thought they were just regular ol' Idaho folks. Come to find out, they are totally cool. And to be honest with you, I always sort of dreamed that I would be the one to put Rexburg on the map--you know, because of my awesome blog. Now they have made an awesome movie that takes place in Rexburg, and I haven't blogged in three weeks! I am SO uncool. So, I clearly need to up the cool factor this year. And believe you me, if I could come up with a word that means cool but rhymes with "nine" I would have a new theme for this year. As it is, I will just have to try to pick up the pieces of my nerdi-and boring-ness.
On an unrelated note: the Yurt was fun, but exhausting. Christmas was also fun, but exhausting (note to self: you do not need to make ham, homemade rolls, and a cake from scratch with 2 hour frosting when you have two small children who would rather just eat hershey kisses all day long). Our trip to Oregon, our New Years celebration, and Holden's 7th birthday: fun but exhausting.
Here is some good cheer for you from the most ordinary and boring house on the block:
