Fly on the Wall is a series of snippets from my life that won’t really make up a whole blog post by themselves, but certainly together make up a fun little bit of reading! What’s unique about this is that participating bloggers all write their posts and they are put up simultaneously for your reading pleasure. Except mine, because mine was late (see the next paragraph for an explanation below). Anyhoo, the links to the other blogs are at the bottom of the post. Please take some time to visit them all, they are wonderful (and funny) people!
So I took a month off from writing, I can’t say that a lot of interesting things happened… And seriously my computer crashed when I was writing this. Blue screen of death! I panicked big time! Fortunately after shutting it down and letting it sit for awhile, it seems to be okay. Anyhoo…
One night I had a dream that I was at work and it snowed only it snowed inside and I was trapped at work because I couldn’t drive my car through the snow inside the BUILDING I WORK IN. I need help. Seriously. I think I just needed Spring.
The Professor saw a commercial for what he thinks will be his new favorite thing: Bacon wrapped deep dish pizza. Ew.
My evening spent with my husband ended with conversations about how agricultural sprayers would be advantageous in a zombie apocalypse (as opposed to a combine) and how it would feel to be kicked by a kangaroo.
All of that was just in time for Valentine’s Week. We’re so romantic.
So The Princess is in that stage where she is losing lots of teeth. Two teeth were lost in a short period of time at our house. This is a lot for a tooth fairy to keep up with.
Lost tooth one went three days without payment. Finally a pink bag with magical confetti hearts and four shiny quarters in it appeared on the fourth day, along with a letter of explanation. Apparently the tooth fairy had a tooth convention in Toothiana Texas.
Lost tooth two also went three days sans money. Finally a dollar miraculously appeared under Mommy’s pillow this morning. We’re thinking the tooth fairy was playing tricks. Or maybe got confused…
I’d like the record to show that the tooth fairy does not have a drinking problem. Also, my daughter is a very light sleeper.
After supper I swear I heard my husband said “Great, now I can crap. I’ve been waiting and gathering things all day to do it.”
What he actually said was that he can “craft”. On Guild Wars, the online game that he plays. I’m still not sure which one actually makes more sense to me…
The Professor: “What movie is this?”
Evil Genius: “Facing the Giants. Ever seen it?”
The Professor: Maybe I have. Unless I didn’t then I haven’t.
The Headache Diaries-Facebook entries made by me during the month of the headache:
Hi I’m Sarah, and this is my headache. Maybe I should name it? What is a good name for a headache that won’t go away?
And Coming soon, Headache, the Musical…
Evil Genius’s cheesecake: Now with divine healing powers.
I mean, yeah it’s always been heavenly and all, but tonight it made my migraine go away, and that was just the batter!
Eat his cheesecake tomorrow, gain superpowers. It could make a pretty good Friday, huh?
I give up. I surrender. Please just go away and let me be! You have made me into a completely worthless individual today!
Just to share what a super kid I have: In an attempt to combat these terrible headaches I’m having, I quit drinking diet pop. I really gave up caffeine for the most part. I can’t say it’s really helping, but I’m trying. I’ve hardly had any caffeine other than the occasional coke in the last week.
Yesterday was hard because I had to work in the evening. I gave in and gave my son a dollar to run down to Casey’s to get me a can of Coke. He happily complied and it did help.
This morning I got up and came downstairs. He was sitting on the couch with a dollar in his hand. “What’s that for?” I asked him.
“Oh, it’s mine. I thought I’d bring it just in case you need something today mom.”
He’s my favorite today.
So I am off of caffeine for the most part. I’m still getting headaches, but not as bad. So we’ll see.
Graceful thing that I am, I dropped and broke my glasses. Fortunately it was time to make an appointment anyway. I got the indestructable flexon glasses, and they are PURPLE!!!!!
I just watched my cat flip a vhs tape across the floor and proceed to attack it… That’s right, make sure it’s dead.
Newsflash: Frozen hashbrowns are not a ready to eat food (says on the package).
The following is me online trying to find a new weight workout now that I’m running. Keep in mind I’m not a beginner, I’ve been lifting for many years:
Oh… I don’t want to watch a video…
That girl looks too happy, I can’t do that workout. Seriously, she’s enjoying that swiss ball waaaaay too much.
Our gym doesn’t have kettlebells.
I really don’t care what Reese Witherspoon does, thank you.
Last time I checked I’m not a man.
Yeah, still haven’t found a new workout…
Evil Genius: “How much snow do we have? 3 inches under the dog. Is that a standard measuring system?”
Bad things to use as a bookmark for your library book #6: Your birth certificate. True story… Not me, fortunately, but some other poor soul that is probably wondering where it went. I sent it back to the library it came from.
So upcoming things… The Professor starts baseball on Sunday. This will be interesting for him, having to deal with other people in a team situation. I may drink a lot the next two months.
In the next few months I will be running three 5Ks and a half marathon. Am I crazy? Pretty much. I’m finally starting to see results. Next month may very well be the running edition!
Now… don’t run away, check out these amazing people below. You know you wanna…(My apologies to Karen, I really didn’t want to be late with this. I still love you and will be ON TIME next month! XOXO)

HUGS HUGS HUGS for the awful headaches!!!
Good luck with the 5Ks and half marathon!!!!
Love the glasses, hate the headaches and can’t stop laughing at the “crafts”!
Love the purple glasses. My girls have those stuffed animals with the big eyes…creepy big eyes.
LOL at the tooth fairy issues, I think we will face the same problems when Dino starts losing his chompers.
I can’t stop laughing at the poop comment your husband made…OMG…I can;t breathe.
We gave up on the Tooth Fairy a long time ago, until our youngest ratted us out to my parents… that time the Tooth Fairy came twice.
Sorry for the headaches. I understand.
Love this! Your family sounds a lot like mine. I agree with you on the bacon wrapped pizza. And agriculture sprayers would be super handy during a zombie apocalypse. Wonder where you buy them.
