Friday Fill-In, Know & Tell Friday

Happy 8-8-08!!!


1. You know you're old when you go to bed before your kids!

2. My heart is divided between going to bed and finishing this post!

3. Sleep is what I need RIGHT NOW!

4. I have felt the pain of losing a child I have known the depths of sorrow and grief.

5. Gah, won't these people let me sleep!

6. Be grateful as soon as you can!

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I’m looking forward to going to dinner with my hub, getting unpacked from girl's camp, and going to bed early so I can catch up on my sleep!, tomorrow my plans include my long run (hopefully a 12 or 13 miler) and then taking the boys to a Make a Wish event (Fire, Water, & Ice Festival) in SLC at Oquirrh Park and Sunday, I want to take a nap! Yes I know I sound obsessed with sleep! I have good reason for that...I just got home from girl's camp...AKA a "sleepless week of NO sleep!" (but oh so fun!)





1. My favorite bedtime attire is comfy shorts and a comfy shirt in the summer and warm and soft fleece lounge pants in the winter.


2. The perfect meal would include lasagna with a hearty side of green salad and garlic bread and a big glass of ice water. And of course some kind of gooey chocolate dessert!


3. The most memorable girl's night out I've ever had was when me and my sister-in-laws had our annual Sister's Fling and we dressed up like Gilligan's Island characters (I was Maryann) and we had a fabulous non-talent show. Good memories of that one!!! That was in 1999 (or around there) I was a-hem-years-old.


4. My earliest memory is for that one go here.


5. The family is gone for the evening and I will spend my time that's a toss up between watching a video, shopping, or cleaning the house. I like to clean when no one is around and I know it will stay that way for at least a little while!


6. Right now I am blogging while watching the opening ceremonies of the Olympics.


7. When I am done blogging, I am going to bed!!! Zzzzzzzzzzzzz.....

How fun: an annual Sister's Fling. I'd have to steal your idea if I lived anywhere near my sister or SIL. What a great idea!

Oh, your earliest memory is so touching! I think it's easy for adults to forget what it's like in the shoes of a small child... but clearly your mom knew. How sweet.

Bless you, Jodi. Have a great weekend.

Great answers on your meme too!

I would love to throw an annual girlfriend night with a bunch of friends. That sounds like fun.
Damn, I forget about some gooey chocolate dessert for my perfect meal.

Jodi, you dont know me, I have lurked a bit on your blog. But, there is a lady that lurked on mine and she lost a son. She isnt LDS, seems from her posts it has been a while, I read you also lost a son. She too is the mother of all sons.... I dunno, I thought mAYBE you could help her... since no one understands like someone who has been there understands. Here is her blog
