It’s Fall! Sort of…Well, I’m going to pretend it is, anyway…

I visited Everyday Mommy today and saw her beautiful new Fall header and it totally inspired me to change mine, since Fall is my absolute favorite season next to Spring. I came up with two, but I can’t decide which one I want to use…so here’s where your help comes in. Vote for your favorite below and help me out.

Option 1: (Swirly Fall Header)

Option 2: (Birdy Fall Header)

A Book Reading Meme I’ll Actually Do…

1. Open the book you’re currently reading to page 133.

2. Read the fourth line on the page.

3. Put the book back where it had been resting.

4. Tell no one of what it was you just did.

5. Think of five friends to tag with this meme.

6. Do not actually tag them. They are busy and have lives.

7. Go about your life as if nothing has happened.

8. Carry the secret of this meme to your grave.

Take it from a Donkey who’s been there…


One day a farmer’s donkey fell down into a well. The animal cried piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do. Finally he decided the animal was old and the well needed to be covered up anyway, it just wasn’t worth it to retrieve the donkey.

He invited all his neighbors to come over and help him. They all grabbed a shovel and began to shovel dirt into the well. At first, the donkey realized what was happening and cried horribly. Then, to everyone’s amazement, he quieted down. A few shovel loads later, the farmer finally looked down the well and was astonished at what he saw.

With every shovel of dirt that hit his back, the donkey was doing something amazing. He would shake it off and take a step up. As the farmer’s neighbors continued to shovel dirt on top of the animal, he would shake it off and take a step up.

Pretty soon, everyone was amazed as the donkey stepped up over the edge of the well and trotted off!

Life is going to shovel dirt on you, all kinds of dirt. The trick to getting out of the well is to shake it off and take a step up. Each of our troubles is a stepping stone. We can get out of the deepest wells just by not stopping, never giving up!

Shake it off and take a step up!

Some Thursday Fun for Y’all…

I thought I’d share this with you…my mom sent it to me in an email and it’s just too cute. Call the kids in and have them think up dog commands for this little guy and watch the ensuing laughter. It’s even cute when you ask him to do something he can’t understand. You should definitely try: “sit, fetch , shake, roll over, sing, dance, beg, play dead”, etc…but save “kiss” for last!

There’s a new Dot.Com in town…

Sing it with me, now! But seriously…my family has finally worn me down with their griping about how long my blog address is. (Obviously, they don’t know about their “favorites” folder and bookmarking).

So I’ve solved the problem and you can now find me at:

simplyamusingblog.com

Period. That’s all. Nothing more to say at the moment. Well, you could click over there to the right on Ab’s photo and vote for me to stay on TopMomma’s blog. There’s always that.
