In Which We Can Never Talk Again

This weekend my little sister stayed at our house while she was up from Cedar City for the weekend. During one of many conversations, I mentioned what a great spring it has been. We’ve had plenty of sunshine, quite a bit of rain, everything is green and the flowers are blooming, and “we haven’t had snow in over a month,” I said.

Monday morning we woke up to an inch of snow on our cars.

Also this weekend, as I was getting ready for church, Philip called to me from the nursery as he was changing Peanut’s diaper and said, “You know what’s really awesome? The baby has not had a single diaper blowout so far.”

That night when we took off Peanut’s pants, we found his onesie soaked through with poop.

So apparently everything we say is coming true.

If you need me, I’ll be off buying lottery tickets, because “I think winning a million dollars would be really awesome.”

    As Grannie always says, "Words are powerful!" Remember that Dad and I joked that our car would break down in Nebraska on our honeymoon?? You got it. 20 miles over the border.

    Quel coincidence!

  3. Landen says:

    Sorry! Didn't mean to jinx you!

  4. Janssen says:

    You must be leaving the state, since Utah has no lottery. But you're welcome to come buy some tickets here in Mass 🙂

    Seems it never fails.

    I learned the hard way was to never say, "My child would never do that." I learned to say, "I *hope* (or pray) my child would never do that."

    Another thing that we've learned is not to discuss going on vacation or doing anything fun in front of anything that could possibly break down and cost us a repair bill. Inanimate things like cars, washers, and refrigerators really can hear us. They must get jealous or think we're abandoning them or something. Just kidding, of course, but it sometimes seems that way!

    PS You can also come to Idaho to buy a lottery ticket, but it wouldn't be as much fun as going to see Janssen. (I have never purchased one…)

    Cool, I have a whole list of things for you to say! Let me know when you have time. 🙂
    Packrat: I can guarantee Merrick hasn't either.
