August 1st…. where did the summer go?

August 1, 2011

I’m having a hard time believing that we just entered the month that SCHOOL STARTS!  Well, it doesn’t start until August 31st, but still…. it’s the right month.  I did go out and buy 3×5 cards today…. and now I feel far more ready.  There is so much still to do before school starts… I haven’t even looked for ESL curriculum for Nora yet.  This will be my first year homeschooling with kids in elementary, jr. high, high school and even taking a few college classes!  We’ve come a long way, baby!

Tonight, in one single trip to Walmart, we solved many of the broken household items… new printer… new vacuum… new toilet flusher handle… new box for Barbie and her clothes.  Earlier today I wandered through our lower floor picking lint from the carpet…. oh well.  I’m still looking forward to vacuuming again with a new fangled machine!  Tomorrow morning Superman is scheduled to arrive and fix the washing machine.  I’m not going to know what to do with myself when everything is up and running again!

I feel a book review coming on… stay tuned.


SuperCon 2009 (nine…. nine… nine…)

February 13, 2009


“Defend and Protect!”

Yes, it’s over.  Thank God!  Here we are as members of the Justice League….. Wonder Woman and Superman.  It was a mystery dinner theater that our youth group puts on each year at Valentine’s Day to raise money for camp.  So this year, instead of just using youth, they decided to ask the 40’s group if they would like to participate.  Well, at least two of us did.  It actually was really fun…. despite having to learn hip-hop dances and singing a duet of Islands in the Stream together, while we climbed into a boat made out of people. 

The audience was trying to figure out who stole the super hero powers from all of the super heroes.  There was quite the commotion of room changing for the sessions, like “Having it All” with the super heroines, “Brand Marketing” with the Justice League, and “Conflict Resolution” with the Fantastic Four.  A fun night to participate in, but BOY HOWDY, we’re glad it’s over and we can get back to our normal busy lives.

Here is a link to the STAINWOWcommercial that they played at the SuperCon convention in case us supers needed to remove stains from our outfits.

And one more picture, including Spin Sister….. she could spin her pony tail to fly, fight bad guys and cool off menopausal woman.


Wherever there in injustice, you’ll find us.  Wherever there is suffering, we’ll be there.  Wherever liberty is threatened, you’ll find the Justice League!

Wonder Woman I am Not

February 10, 2009

So, if you’ve been reading along on MSJ since my husband and I were cajoled into participating in a Valentine’s Day Dinner Theater with “small speaking parts,” I’m sure you’ll be thrilled to hear how it’s going.  The participants include the youth and college age kids from our church, the youth pastor (32), Rick and I (42) and another sucker guy named Gary (54).  Why, oh why did they ask us?  I’m still not sure.  So, a muscle is pulled on the outside of my hip bone causing me to limp.  I am almost able to perform the hip-hop dances for this “small speaking part.”  I am more than sore… legs and arms… from all the dance practice.  The “Islands in the Stream” duet that Superman and I are singing is coming along fine (for our “small speaking part”) due to the fact that they cut the song in half and made up hilarious background dancier moves to distract from our singing and acting abilities. 


Superman’s costume arrived and I purchased some classy Kenneth Cole black boots that I spray painted bright red for him.  Keeve looked out the back door at the boots and sadly shook his head saying, “Dad’s going to look just like Ronald McDonald.”  Since this is a Super Hero Conference, they told me I could wear “business clothes” as long as they are Wonder Woman colors.  So I bought a tasteful red dress with white polka dots and a bright blue blazer that I’m turning into a cape.  The costume department did come up with my golden arm bands and tiara…. to go on my big, black curly wig.  I’m still in the process of making the lasso of truth and the gold belt.  Not sure what shoes I’ll be wearing yet.  I have to do karate kicks and Michael Jackson slides in them.  Goodwill, here I come.

Tomorrow night is dress rehearsal.  Then Friday night is the show. Tickets are still available!  480-367-8182 Come one.  Come all. Viewing 40 people in spandex will be worth the admission cost alone….. but they threw in dinner too.
