Our Extraordinary, Ordinary Life

Today was a really good day. There wasn’t anything particularly special about it, but maybe that’s why I loved it so much. All the ordinary things combined to be that extraordinary life Tim is always talking about in About Time. Here are a few of those extraordinary ordinary moments:

  1. Disney dance party in the kitchen with the girls. Chad was coming home a bit late from work, so the girls and I twirled and danced and chased each other while Alexa blasted the best Disney tunes. The girls were running around with butterfly wings on their backs and princess crowns sliding off their heads. There were lots of giggles and some impressive new moves from Ellie.
  2. Halloween costume making with Chad, complete with pumpkin chocolate chip cookies and How I Met Your Mother reruns. Somehow, Chad’s strengths combined with one or two of my creative strengths (yes, I have those somewhere) made it all work. We have a functioning and cute slinky twin costume, ladies and gents! Let’s just hope it comes together on Halloween!
  3. I managed to do some laundry, run some errands, talk with a few of my favorite people on the phone, and get my work done. I still read Harry Potter and caught up on Grey’s Anatomy.

Such a simple, lovely day.

    You should show your students how making these connections will help them in the real world when they’re trying to connect with other people online in their hobbies or careers…)

  5. Finally, here are some additional resources to help you learn how to write great blog comments:
    For my Creative Writing class we have to write a short story, I really want to write some thing along the lines of Columbine, but I’m worried about the reaction of my teacher. As far as I know, he has no personal history with the idea, but … I don’t know. What would you want to see out of a short story for a creative writing class?.

  6. Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this website.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very hard to get that “perfect balance” between user
    friendliness and appearance. I must say you’ve done a great job with this.
    In addition, the blog loads very quick for me on Safari. Excellent Blog!

  7. I like the valuable info you provide in your articles.
    I will bookmark your blog and check again here frequently.

    I’m quite certain I’ll learn lots of new stuff right here!
    Good luck for the next!

  8. Fantastic blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m completely confused ..
    Any recommendations? Cheers!

  9. Hi there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing
    several weeks of hard work due to no backup. Do you have any methods to stop
    hackers?

    you few interesting things or suggestions.

    I wish to read even more issues about it!

  12. Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a
    sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and
    said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I
    had to tell someone!

  13. Hello! This is my 1st comment here so I just wanted to give a quick shout out and say I really
