Well, I promised a funny story, but it's just funny weird, not funny "haha".
So, there was a square dance for all the girl scouts. The dance was at a school in the next little town over. Our school is pretty small. There are only about 40 kids per grade, 20 kids per class, give or take. The school they were at is also small but goes into a big high school. Our high school kids probably went to kindergarten with almost every kid in their graduating class.
While they were in the hall they saw a locker with a sign that said "This locker belongs to Arleta". Most people would be like "cool", but this isn't like seeing a name like Lisa, or Sue, or Julie. (My best-friend, and my sister's names). Arleta isn't very common, especially in Michigan!
I want to know who named their kid that! I know it's weird, but I keep trying to think of someone I might know who could find out for me. LOL. Makes me sound a little psycho, but I swear I'm not! If the parents of the other Arleta are my age, I probably knew them, or knew of them in school if they lived in this county.
When I named SP, there were no other Jordan's that I knew of. Now, I hear it all of the time! There were only really old guys named Malcolm when I named MM, but it's becoming popular again. I really thought absolutely for sure though, that Arleta would stay "our" name. It's also my mother's name.
If y'all didn't think I was crazy before ...... LOL
I went to the baby shower, and gave my bestfriend's sister the things I made for her. Everyone was like "You made all of that?" See me blush? LOL. I also gave a couple of soap socks wrapped in a garterlac cloth for a prize for one of the games. Those were a big hit! The shower turned out great. All the cute pink and purple clothes. It had better really be a girl!
The kids are home from school today for midwinter break. MM has knocked me off the high scores of Guitar Hero II, darn kid!
I thought, I'll have a chance to read some blogs, but bloglines is down! I guess I'll read them off the sidebar of my blog. I've been reading (lurking!) every chance I get, but I love to leave comments. I hope all the people I comment to don't go "AR again! She's a comment-addict." Yes, I am. I love to get comments, too. Thanks for all of the ones you've left for me.
I sold a couple of soaps at my etsy shop! Thanks to the buyers, too!! :)
bloglines is working fine now! Yay!
