The Five of Us, Spring 2014

If I Had Two Wishes...

1. That the MythBusters' wives had blogs. (Yes, they both are married. I really couldn't handle life-long commitment to either of them. Bear Grylls is married too. I'd really like to know what kind of woman thinks it's a good idea to marry Bear. And, what she calls him when she's angry with him, when she's teasing him,... But I digress.)

2. That I knew the addresses of said blogs.

Can I make several comments about several blogs or do I have to go an comment on each individual one?

1) The whole partially identical phenomenon (sp?) is fascinating. And I believe there are several varations of just how the thing can happen. (Honestly I didn't read your link, so maybe it says that.) Even w/ identical twins there is a difference depending on exactly when in the process the egg splits. My husband is an identical - so my mother-in-law has all the scoop!

2) You comment in the bike story about "the baby ate my brain" makes it sound like you're pregnant. However, given the later post about the margaruitas, I'm going to assume that's not true. :-) :-) :-) I read the posts starting from the most recent, had I read them chronologically, I would have been wondering! :-)

3) Hope you were able to sleep it off! I did a similar thing once w/ wine - it was kind of embarassing!

4) And yes, I too was a virgin on my wedding day and I was 28!!!!!!!!!

Talk To Me

I blog for myself and my kids and I would do it even if no one else cared, but I do like to hear from you (and think it's a wee bit creepy of you to voyeurize us without my knowing it). So, please leave a comment from time to time, or email me anytime at Much obliged, I'm sure.
