Just so you know, I pick my teams based on how I feel about the names. I don't know their records, I don't know their injury list, I just look at the two names and go with my gut. I get teased about this a lot. A Lot. But, I do it anyway, because it's what works for me.

On to the really big news of the weekend. We picked a countertop! Yes, we did. It's granite and I'm so happy with it. It's among the only ones we looked at that both my husband and I could agree on. It's amazing and wonderful and in about 3 weeks it's going to be here every day so I can look at it.
When my kids were little and they would get agitated by unexpected things, I started a habit with them where we would chant: Be Happy, Be Flexible, Be Free. Sometimes we danced, sometimes we stamped our feet, sometimes we laughed at ourselves. It was a way to get them out of whatever moment they were in, but it's also a good way to approach life.
