FAVORITE SIGN: (Spotted at my local vet’s office) “WE LIKE BIG MUTTS AND WE CANNOT LIE”
FAVORITE LESSON LEARNED: When making macaroni and cheese, Vanilla Soy Milk is not a suitable substitute for regular milk in a pinch. For reals, do not try this at home.
FAVORITE DELIVERY: My friend Cheryl’s cinnamon rolls – they were still warm when her daughter brought them to my door and I felt like Esther from the Bible: “And who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this?” After the first bite, I knew - I have fulfilled my purpose. (What? She’s using Biblical references to make jokes now? What is WRONG with this woman?)
FAVORITE MOCKING OPPORTUNITY: The Rodeo Queen Pageant in Montana. Specifically, the interview portion. I have to say, the part when the interviewer had to explain to the contestant what she meant by asking about her “greatest asset” was a highlight. (Her answer? “Snowboarding”. I guess a solid foundation in moguls is really helpful experience when trying to rope a steer.) (Now she’s making fun of young girls trying to make a difference through Rodeo? Has she NO CLUE how long it took that poor girl to Bedazzle her collar?
FAVORITE PART OF OUR ROAD TRIP: Leaving I-80 in Wyoming. Though I’ve never heard it mentioned, I swear some of our pioneer ancestors must have died of boredom during that leg of their journey. I had air conditioning, jolly ranchers and season 2 of “The Office” and I barely made it. P.S. IF THIS DRIVE WAS ANY LONGER, I WOULD BE IN MENOPAUSE BY NOW. Wait…. (Making light of our pioneer heritage?! That’s IT! She has CROSSED. THE LINE.)
FAVORITE T-SHIRT: Discovered on a group of polygamist brothers getting ready to run a marathon together, they got matching shirts that said, “Our Moms Can Beat Up Your Mom”. True story. I’m not a fan of polygamy, but how can I not love that?

Still, my FAVORITE REASON TO GET UP IN THE MORNING, EVEN IF IT IS TO THE SOUND OF AN ALARM:
Goodbye summer. K.I.T.
