"You dumped out the whole loaf??"

I find myself asking questions similar in nature all day, every day with my funny little boy corban. He is getting to be quite self sufficient I guess you could say. He will nab the corner of a bread loaf sack hanging off the edge of the counter, and pull it down, untie the twist tie, and usually just remove a single slice (avoiding the heal of coarse. I did teach him that ;) ) but lately he's discovered the art of holding any sack by the bottom corner and letting go with the other hand that was stabilizing whatever was being held in the bag, thus dumping the contents onto the floor. Which is fine with a sack of peek-a-blocks but not so great with bread. luckily it was the butt end of the loaf so there were only 3-4 peices left. To brag a little...he did just try to put the slice he had taken out of the stack on the floor back when I questioned his endeavors. Don't worry, I told him he could eat it since he got it out. I'm not heartless. ;)
Anyway, I just kinda have this desire to post about a whole hodge podge (for lack of a better way to phrase it) of things that have been on my mind. Spring usually does that to me. Here we go: Does anyone else every really really really want to throw caution to the wind and take an impromptu road trip someplace??? Someone always comes along when I'm thinking this and rains a whole bunch of "responsibility" on me. I don't know whether this desire comes from being a stay at home mom and wanting to go on a new adventure with my little heathen, or wanting to see how much car time corban can really stand being an angel, or if it's just simply I've been on one and only one road trip that was completely wonderful (even if I was nauseated almost the whole trip because I was about 12 weeks pregnant). I just don't know the reasoning, but I am just hankerin for a road trip. HEY I just had a thought! maybe it's me missing the road trips to places like lake powell and yellowstone. Those were always the greatest. Family+cousins+warheads (usually) =good times.
next item on my mind: jack is officially leaving Carrabba's. They (jack and carrabba's as an entity) are leaving each other on good terms. That's pretty much all I can "officially" tell about but there will be more to come as far as dates that he's actually leaving, and a new job and such but just so you don't worry, he has a prospect in the works right now that is quote "80 percent sure things will work out on our end" (perspective employer said to jack on the phone).
Next: our contract is up on april 30th and if we want to stay for another year we'd have to sign a 15 month contract on top of the extra 100 bucks a month they're upping the rent. In other words, we can't afford that extra 100 bucks on top of the extra 150 a month we're payin in my fun appendicitis experience. To make a long subject longer: we're moving. don't know where exactly. but we're moving come the end of april.
Kinda next but mostly connected to the last one is that we're super super house hungry. I think that's pretty self explanitory: House Hungry.
You think this is a long enough post? I think yes. I hope you've enjoyed the ramblings of an unorganized crazy person.
any comments on house hunting or apartments in the greater salt lake area (including the draper and more westward valley) would be greatly appreciated!

Amanda,
What a great blog you have. You are the cutest writer. It shows your personality so much. Loved reading about your version of Stella's restaurant. And I wasn't that great of a mom or I would have taken him out FOR You so you could have had a hot meal. Yea, he was pretty crazy that night. Go figure.
Love, Mom
