Why are commercials so loud?

So... random life updates/thoughts:

1. I'm totally annoyed right now with the volume of commercials. Have you ever noticed some are crazy loud? I think I'm going to start boycotting any product/services that are advertised by insanely loud and obnoxious commercials. Join me in my fight against loud commercials. ha ha

2. I've been in a slump this week. Daniel has the opportunity to work in Knoxville TN for the large majority of the next 3 months. I know this is a great for his career and I'm totally playing the supportive wife role but I'm not so sure I actually mean all the words I'm saying. Is that terrible? Selfishly, I really enjoy him coming home every night. I like cooking (well.. microwaving) for 2. I LOVE that he takes out the trash (it's just not my thing). I don't know how to even turn on a lawn mower or the grill. Basically, I don't do alone well and I've never had Parker and the 2 dogs by myself for longer than 2 days (and I'm pretty sure I forgot the feed the dogs that 2nd day I felt so overwhelmed). This may be another one of those months where the mail piles up on the counter and I just sweep it all in the trash. ha ha Daniel leaves Sunday (PS- creepies.... don't get any ideas... I am a lioness and I WILL protect my cub and my house with my very large, high powered, shot gun... no questions asked)... anyways... I'm bummed and am compensating with play dates daily!

3. I'm slightly addicted to all things vampires. My butt has been glued to the couch the last 4 days watching every episode of The Vampire Diaries. (Team Stefan.) I've got to stop watching/reading stuff about vampires... I'm starting to believe they exist. (maybe?) I thought I grew out of my gullible days. Darn. I wonder if Daniel would let me name our next child Cullen... oh Edward.

4. I'm sure you're all dying to see pictures of Parker. He is basically the cutest 14 month old ever (I'm sure I can scientifically prove it... like a Rasmussen pole or something). If you're my facebook friend, you've probably already seen them but here they are again anyways for your viewing pleasure.

5. Be ready for totally pathetic blog posts next week! I don't do "alone" well but I swear I'm going to try to be positive about it. If I'm being a Debbie downer, someone call me out on it! Better yet... just call me and check on my sanity! ha ha


  1. I HATE loud commercials! FCC is passing a bill saying that commercials can't be more than 'x' amount of decibles louder than the show. Hopefully that will help!

    I love that Matt takes out the trash too... I also don't know how to turn on the grill. :)

    Parker is too adorable! I'll allow he's the cutest BOY as long as Riley can be the cutest girl. :)

    Hope your week without Daniel isn't too rough!

  2. taylor-i so get the same way when joel is gone (which is a lot) =( last time he deployed, i threw my keys away that had our house key, mail key, car, key, key fob and a cute holder thingy that clipped onto my purse. this time, i have forgotten to feed the dog AND take him out (BAD dog mommy)and have had hummus and or ice cream for lunch and dinner. sadness. haha.

    i'm in the boat with you!
