…because when you’ve been friends as long as we have, you are always 8 years old when you are together.

My New Obsession

I. Love. Words. With. Friends.

I love it.

I do.

And I’m not even particularly good at it.

I currently have 16 games going on.



For those who are unfamiliar with the game, it’s Scrabble, but you play online.

The game can take minutes, hours, days or weeks, as most participants (like me) have to go about their daily lives in the midst of playing.

My “active” time is early morning and late night.  I get as much WWF in as I can during those times.

Because it’s fun.

Real Man started playing, also, and I love playing against him.

We both love playing Scrabble together, but don’t get a lot of time to sit down together with the actual board.

This is an excellent solution.

Despite the name, you don’t actually have to play with friends.

You can start a game with random people, as well.

Could save your life.

Don’t believe me?

Read this.

The monkeys like to make suggestions for “words.”

The quote marks are due to the fact that most of the words that Monkey in the Middle suggests aren’t actual words, but really great efforts to get me as many points as possible.

Words like “JZXQ.”

God, I wish that was a word.

So, I suggest Words With Friends for anyone who likes to play Scrabble or just likes to exercise their brain.

It is absolutely addicting, but a healthy addiction…if there is such a thing.

Long Lost Friend

So, on Facebook, my friend, Sharon, told me about a blog she thought I should check out.

Now, first, since we all know about Facebook “friends” let me share that Sharon is actually a friend of mine. 

Not a random person that I’ve friended, in order to ensure that I have lots and lots of people to share my business with.

That would just be silly.

That’s what this blog is for.

I kid, I kid.

Anyway, Sharon and I work together, and we talked a bit about the blog today at work, and she said I should really check it out.

I trust Sharon’s judgement.

Sharon is much like me.

We don’t do drama.

We tell it like it is.

We love our families and love the kids we are entrusted to teach.

We’re pretty awesome, me and Sharon.

But, I digress.

The point was, I trust her judgement.

So, I checked out the blog.

I think this blogger is my long lost friend.

We love iCarly, She loves iCarly.

She sometimes does a Wordless Wednesday post, I sometimes do a Wordless Wednesday post.

I wake up with three kids in my bed most mornings, she wakes up with three kids in her bed most mornings.

She’s very funny, I’m very funny.

Okay, that one is a matter of perspective.

Anyway, check out her blog.

I enjoyed it and I think you will, too!

Thought for the Day

Filed under: Uncategorized — Amy @ 2:41 pm

First of all, my deepest apologies for my absence this past week.

It was a week of working late and crashing early.

However, I’m back, and better than ever.

I’m totally refreshed after my weekend with the girls, and have SO much to share.

However, as I’m on my way out the door to perform in a concert, I will leave you with this thought for the day, and will let the updating begin tomorrow.

Enjoy your beautiful Sunday!
