I know you're getting sick of this, but...

I'm pooping out on my meme again. Why do I always do this? Well, honestly I think if I had more time I would be better with these things...but having to think of all of the Short Answers questions, and then ask them to my brothers every week(Jonas doesn't like being asked random questions) is just a lot of work.

Besides those reasons though, I've really been trying to simplify my life. I'm cleaning things up so that I can have more time for what I really want and essentially need to be doing.

So, (don't hate me, Alexis!) I'm going to have to do one of two things--either give up Short Answers altogether, or hand it on to someone else. If anyone's interested, let me know!

On another subject...Harrison is OBSESSED with Scooby Doo! It's really too adorable. ^_^ He never wants to watch anything but the Scooby Doo movies--and I'm not talking about the old cartoons; I'm referring to the new, real people ones. Anyway, this kid is insanely good at role playing! We had a new humidifier set up in the living room the other day and Harry found it rather mysterious.

So, he checked it out...



...and he found the evil mastermind...



...and then Velma appeared on the scene just in time to proclaim an earth shattering "Jinkies!"



I love that little man. ^_^



P.S. There are only 4 more days to vote for me on the Love This Site Awards...so, any last minute votes would be AWESOME!!! ;) Thanks peeps!

Simplicity is a lost discipline in today's age. I hope you can latch on to it and make it a lifestyle. Tis a beautiful thing, or as the song say ,"Tis a gift to be simple..."

Well I would say that I would, but if I take on one more thing I'll explode. I'm trying to simplify my life as well. But if no one does and later I have a lot of extra time I may take it over for ya =)

Those pictures of Harry were to funny! I love the second one! =)

Have a great day!
love ya!

How perfectly ADORABLE are those pictures! ha! I've never seen those!

That humidifier is lame in that it just barely lifts the mist and then drops it, but sure makes for good pictures! ha!

Love you daughter - simplify simplify... you are getting a taste of my life (busyness) and now you understand why I like that word so much. :)
Rejoicing in simplicity~

I haven't had time to participate either, although I love the short answers because they're so funny! Don't worry about it though! I think sometimes we get so wrapped up in blogging that we forget it's supposed to be fun and not like a part-time job! LOL! Learning to simply is so important in today's world, when everyone seems to think that the busier you are, the more successful you are, but that's not the way God intended for us to live. Those pictures of Harrison are so cute :) Hope you have a great day!

Kristin said...

Haha....I put "learning to simply" instead of "simplify". LOL! See, I'm simplifying so much that I don't even worry about typing out the entire word anymore. Heehee!

There aren't enough tissues in the world for the tears I'm crying over the loss of Short Answers. If Matty was a little older, I'd offer to take it myself, but I wouldn't be able to have a post. Oh, wait...I think I have an idea!!! I'll get back with you!!!

Anna Gray said...

I would participate in Short Answers each week, but since there are no 'younger' kids in my house, I can't tag along in Short Answers. :-(

P.S. I voted for you! I hope that you win! :0)

Anna Gray said...

Oh, and one more thing!!! The pics of Harrison are SO CUTE!!! :0D

Kathryn said...

I don't particiapte in Short Answers 'cause i don't have children in my life (yeah, sad huh?) but i love reading them!

I bet i could come up with some questions if someone has kids to ask . . . just a thought.

Have a wonderful week Abigail & simplify all you want. :)

Hannah said...

I loved Short Answers--for the first time I did it. Sadly, I would forget to ask my brother's the questions till they were in bed. It was so fun though. ^^

Simplicity is SO good. :)

Aw, he is SO cute. Like, completely adorably amazingly cute. As in, Awww...^^

Love & Blessings,

Hannah

Lexi said...

Too cute photos of Harrison!! Man...does he get more adorable everyday or what?? =)

I think simplicity is the place where God can use us the best! No other distractions or things in our way when opens up a new door!

Love and Jesus hugs!

Joinx! (spelling). If time management were easy, it wouldn't be a multi-million dollar industry. Don't feel bad when you have to say "no" to stuff... just don't say no to me:) (Just kidding). Love Ya!

Yeah, Short Answers is something amazingly fun, but hard to maintain. ^^ I did it once, and always enjoy reading everybody else's.

Simplicity is something that really needs to be strived after...by everybody. So you deserve a *high-five* for thinking of it and striving after it.

CUTE PICTURES!! *grins* he's so cute. :)

Love ya,
Bekah
