Weekly Wrap-Up (2.22.13)

SNL Weekend Update
Last Saturday night, host Seth Meyers interviewed special guest, Olia Povlatsky, about how the meteorite that exploded over Russia last week had impacted life in her village. I rarely laugh out loud while watching television, especially when I'm alone, but this skit had me laughing so hard that tears were streaming down my cheeks. "Bear with me" and give this video a try.

Dude, Why Are You Not Watching This Video?!
For those of you who aren't familiar with blogs, they're set up in such a way that owners, if they so choose, can track how many people visit their site and how many people view each individual post. This feature provides interesting and valuable information; for instance, I've learned that all of you prefer posts in which I write about publicly embarrassing myself or having been publicly embarrassed by my children. You also seem to enjoy posts about my experiences in Texas, especially when they relate to long-standing Texas or TAMU traditions.

I happened to check my stats yesterday, and I noticed that very few of you have checked out the Dude Perfect video I posted earlier this week. There's no pressure of course, but if you missed the video the first time around and are looking for something to put a smile on your face today, take five minutes and watch stuntman extraordinaire Johnny Football prove why he's the rightful owner of a Heisman Trophy.

There are times when I find that a picture - or in this case, an ecard with a cute picture of a mother and her son as well as a clever saying on it - does a considerably better job of capturing the essence of my week than do nouns, adjective, and verbs joined together to create coherent sentences. This is one of those times.

Quote of the Week
When I was five years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life.  When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up.  I wrote down "happy".  They told me I didn't understand the assignment, and I told them they didn't understand life.

~ John Lennon

My goal for this week is NOT to be the parent I always imagined I would be - that ship sailed a LONG, LONG time ago - but to be happy, both inside and out.
