Did you know?

Did you know that 1/2 an avocado has 161 calories while a spinach salad loaded with veggies that takes up my entire dinner plate is a grand whopping total of 45 calories?

Did you know that a house in my sister's neighborhood exploded this week?

Did you know that that Venus is the only planet that rotates clockwise? Apparently that means we're rotating you think that's why I have no balance? Maybe my body wants to rotate clockwise and it's the planet's fault that I can't walk in a straight line....just a theory.

Did you know that my Jr. High Geometry teacher required us to write a letter to him every quarter? We had to tell him how we used math in our lives that quarter. Every quarter I told him I cross multiplied fractions to double recipes. I'm pretty sure that every quarter that was a lie. And every quarter I got an 'A'.

Did you know that most of my favorite family traditions are ones that are relatively new? (lunch with the girls for birthdays, Fontanini on Christmas Eve, Black Friday, Josh's birthday cake boycott, etc.) I know that.....but for some reason I'm terrified of starting lame traditions for Thomas now (as if he'll even remember). Somehow I think that whatever we do now, we'll have to do every year for the rest of his life. We don't.

Did you know that we've lived in this house for 2 years now, and the basic furniture structure hasn't moved even once? We've added and removed and put things in other rooms as necessary. But the sofa has always been on that wall, the tv always on the other wall, the bed always facing South, and the dresser always facing North. I'm totally going stir crazy and feel the need to rearrange all of the furniture in the whole house.....but there's really only one way to have it. *sigh*

Did you know that I can run 1.5 miles without stopping? True story. It wasn't just a fluke.


  1. Did you know that I that love you? I love reading your blog!!! Thanks for letting me stock you and thomas

  2. What about that explosion? Can I please know more details?
    Thanks for sharing what you know.

  3. I love these posts. I'm probably going to copy your idea and do one of my own.

  4. funny, i was just talking to my visiting teachers a few days ago (both who are in the same unit as me), about how there is only ONE way for furniture to be arranged. we all three had every piece of furniture positioned the same. nice.

    i love your blog and your creativeness.

  5. I don't like moving furniture. Just sayin'.
