There is SOOOOOO much going on here that I can't even begin to write about it tonight. I need to catch up on my school work that I've been slacking on - because of everything else going on. So crazy, and fun... and just plain crazy. I promise to fill you all in very soon. In the mean time I need to share my gratitude for 2 things today:

1. I'm thankful that the keyboard gods have listened to and answered my prayers! Juliana poured Crystal Light on my laptop keyboard on Friday night and the keyboard seemed to be totally fried. But after much pleading and praying and faith (you think I'm kidding, I'm SO not) it seems to be in working order today. Hip-hip-hooray! I've only had the laptop since Sept, I was freaking out a little on the inside. There's a few minor key glitches, but nothing I can't totally live with and besides that I'm totally confident (see me exercising my faith) that they will eventually go away.

2. I am thankful for headphones. So I can rock out to Hannah Montana after the kids are in bed without bothering the whole neighborhood. Hey - a woman's got to stay away some how. And seriously, I don't think it's possible to sit still, let alone sleep, through Hoedown Throwdown. You know you love it - just admit it already!

Boom, boom, clap. Boom-dee-clap-dee-clap

Now if I could just make it through The Climb without tearing up. Seriously one of my all time favorite songs. I can't imagine a point in anyone's life where this song is not somehow applicable. OK, now I have to go find it on YouTube so that you can all enjoy it, because as impossible as it seems to me, I'm sure that there are some of you that have NEVER heard the song. Hold on.....

OK, here it is. This is the official video, which I don't actually care for too much, but the other videos were live performances and the song quality was just not as good.

Alright. I've officially wasted too much time on this blog post! Back to work with me.

(PS - if you get this through email and want to see the video click here to see it on my blog)

I have to admit, I've heard the song, but never really paid much attention to the words. Could have something to do with the fact that I always hear it in a car full of kids! Thanks so much for posting it!! Thanks for your post on my blog...I'll try not to slack, so you don't have to come kick my butt...although it would be so nice to see you all!

I love those songs. Ps don't tell Maddy, but she is getting the Movie for Christmas. We saw it the day we got her ears pierced and we both wanted to see it again as soon as it was over. Her songs are just FUN. Except for that CLIMB one. I could save that one for later.

Glad to see you're still kickin.

I guess I'm WAY out of the Miley Cyrus loop--I've never heard these songs..the boom dee clap one-is just weird but I guess the macarana but for Mormon's?--and updated?

Climb is a good song. She looks weirder than on TV-her hair and mouth are different..weird.

You will never grow old. I've heard all about your school success. I knew something good was going to happen. After the trial comes the blessing and your L-O-N-G Schooling has really been a trial. Good luck with the next step. You are wonderful.

I definitely know the hoedown Miley song! I have Danielle lip sycing, with a mic, very cool, hip!
I didn't know 'the climb' thanks.
Stay sane!
Sleep a little.
