Why I like the blogging world!

How my mess helps to create the genius that is my children!
So I found this cartoon on an old friend's blog. When I say old, I mean I knew her about 20 years- not that she's old. And this is why I love the blogging world. Thanks to it, I've coneccted (what is the spelling of that word, in the time it has taken me to write this I could have looked it up) with some old friends. It's neat to take a peek into their lives and see what they've been up to for the last twenty years or so. This week in particular I heard from Aryn Fitzwater, who was a friend of mine in Colorado Springs, her and her posse were/are 4 years younger than me, but I was their "leader" at girls camp and I adored them and named them my "precious little cherubs." Thanks to hearing from Aryn, I peeked in on blogs of her sisters, her dad- who I loved- another cherub Renee and Jan Mason (the person from whom I stole this cartoon)-- Jan was one of my young women leaders- and she was awesome and I'm sure she still is.




Another reason I love the blogging world is because I like to write down my thoughts. Now especially with only Joely at home, who is here to listen to me. Sure Joely is a great listener and she's smart too, but she doesn't exactly validate me! This way I can write down what I'm thinking and then look back later and see who validates me, my goal is to be cool like Brianne and have like 16 replies. I know it's kind of superficial, but that's me.


Before closing I'd like to end with a lovely mental image. Sadly the only person with me was Joely and she's not good with the camera, yet. I was out this morning putting up "Join Cub Scouts Now" signs all over Crosby. At several points as I'm bent over with my largesse butt in the air, someone would honk. I told my friends Alex and Robert Pena (husband and wife, alex is a shortened version of alejandra) about it, they said, "YOu still got it!" hee hee-


I used to make fun of the adult scout leader in the uniform with the patches, and now that's me and my life, so much so I'm actually RECRUITING people to join our Pack.
Enjoy the laugh on my behalf, beleive me I find myself laughing too!

I'm still laughing over you being a cub scout leader - not that it's so funny (I'm sure you're awesome!) but it's not what I had figured for you. OK, that isn't coming out at all right -- just know I love you and you make me smile!

If I have called my family and told them to leave me comments on my blog so I didn't feel like a giant loser, I'd never admit it... :) I always love reading your blog - it never fails to make me laugh! I'm so glad to be one of the friends you were able to reconnect with! :)

I'm so happy for blogging, too!! That scout outfit is adorable... is it wrong that I laughed out loud when I saw it?

Kareena Mullens said...

Aryn it is wrong NOT to laugh!!! The first time I wore it, David (my precious oldest one) burst out laughing, and then immediatly said,"Mom you don't look funny"

Have you seen my baseball???

I love the Scout uniform. I think that should of been your calling in Laredo with Bro. M ;) Nick might have liked scouts if you were there. Hey, so do you ever hear from Heather? We need to get her blogging:) Oh, in 7 months is our trip to Houston. Mark your calender!!!!

Aryn said...

I think what's funny about the scout outfit is that these small boys manage to get women into these (for all intents and purposes) clown outfits... making you and den leaders across the nation look like chumps somehow :). That said, it really is cute somehow, also.... good times, good times.

Brianne said...

Do I really get 16?? I doubt it, and don't be hatin'. Gala was telling me that you were getting honked at...I never do when I'm out and about in Newport!!! So Jealous!!!

Kareena Mullens said...

Hey Brianne- You never get honked at because people were busy getting into accidents over your beauty--- or they were intimidated by it! Love ya!

Yennigirl said...

HA! You never cease to make me laugh! I LOVE my scout uniform and "secretly" wish I could get all sorts of cool patches and badges on it. P.S. I wish I got honked at . . . ever!

Here is a little more validation. You are almost at 16. I love your blog and refer to it often for a little entertainment. About the cub scouts uniform....the things we do for our little ones! No JK!
