7 Quick Takes


1. I'm doing this from my phone, because this weather has me feeling totally lazy, so excuse my lack of fancy formatting, please. 


2. I am taking a break from FB. I do this every so often, and I've really needed it for a long time. Some ridiculous drama pushed me over the edge, so I'll be back once I can wipe the permanent scowl off of my face. Ain't nobody got time for that. 


3. I accidentally deleted a ton of my blog comments yesterday. Anyone know if there's a way I can fix it? I'm really bummed they're gone. 


4. Kyle's FBI approval came yesterday. They were shipped off to DC today to be apostilled, and will head off to Colton's country with a traveling family next week! These were our last 2 pieces of paperwork, so we should be submitted by the end of the month!!


5. Let me tell you, the team that works their tails off for these babies is amazing. I am so happy to have them helping us along the way. 


6. We went to a splash pad the other day and 2 of the kids didn't even want to play in the water! It was so hot, but I wore jeans, as usual, so I can't complain much. We still had fun. 


7. Any suggestions on shows or movies to watch on Netflix or amazon? I've pretty much run out. I tried watching a random movie the other day and it was so tacky and vulgar, I felt like I wasted my evening. I've already watched Downton Abbey, Call the Midwife, Castle, and I'm watching the Bachelorette (I know, I know). Maybe I should force myself to read a book. Lol. 

Happy Father's Day weekend. Kiss those daddies and thank them for all the hard work they do!

  2. Have you tried Sherlock yet? I really enjoyed it.

    Do you like cop shows at all? We started watching episodes of Hack on Netflix. Very Law and Order-like, but not as much graphic scenes of the crimes. It's alright. Not fantastic, but it passes the time just fine.

    1. Oh Sherlock, I had considered watching that before and forgot! I'll have to check it out.

      I like Castle but some of the other crime ones just get menotonous for me.

  4. Star Trek! :)

    Also, I adore the show Monk, and there's always MacGuyver for 80s nostalgia (plus I love Richard Dean Anderson).

    Clean House and Hoarders make me feel better about the state of my house. :)

    The Business of Being Born is a great documentary if you haven't seen it.

      Ack, hoarders makes me so itchy. I'm sure I've seen most tho. I'll check out the other one.
      Forgot about Monk!
      Not a sci fi girl, ;)

  5. For deleted comments: Is there a option in blogspot to look at your "trash" or something? They might be there if there is.

    Stuff to watch: Good question. Here lately we've been watching a lot of music videos on YouTube so... LOL!

    1. I couldn't inf anything. I figured there would be a restore button or something. :( and finding a help contact for blogger is next to impossible.

      Lol, I don't think that'll work for me ;)

  6. Hurray for your FBI papers getting back and being sent off again! That's great news.

    I understand having to take a deep breath and step back from the internet/fb once in a while. I've been there, too.
    I just want you to know I miss you already. :) You're always a bright spot in my day.
