Word Court!

So I mentioned in my last blog that I am a bit of a grammar snob. I have been thinking about this a lot lately. Sometimes Tyler will try to pull the "I'm smarter than you" tone on me and correct me. It drives me crazy....mostly because I know I'm rarely wrong. I will admit I say things funny, but I come from Ireland and was there through 5th grade, plus the language over there is probably more correct. I would think anyway. More of the traditional English language ya know? Tyler thinks he's so smart and he really is BUT he does say a few words that I'm like "uh, what?" For example: He says wuff rather than wolf. He also says fith rather than fifth. It's weird and he gets mad when I call him out. He usually pulls up this blog and points out all my run on sentences, but I mean that's totally different than bad grammar right? hahaha. Anyway, the point of my title is this: Why do people say "all of the sudden?" It drives me CRAZY! I have always said "all of a sudden," but recently I have heard "all of the sudden." When I hear it, I cringe. Physically cringe. So then I thought to myself that maybe I could be wrong. NO WAY! So, I googled it and I literally rolled on the ground laughing at some of the things it brought up. It turns out there are a lot more grammar snobs out there than I thought and it also turns out that I am right. It is "all of a sudden." YAY!

So there I was blog stalking this morning...and I couldn't help but wonder why everyone was putting Irish backgrounds on their blogs..HELLO?!!? St. Paddy's day is just around the corner, in like a month. WHOOP WHOOP! I will miss being with my family this year. Most years someone usually does a little St. Patricks Day get together. Oh well!
I started my birthing classes last night. It was quite the experience. Tyler's team is in the playoffs so unfortunately he wasn't able to come with me. It took everything in me to go alone, but I did it. The instructor was way nice and totally full of good information. There were two couples, one girl with her grandma and then me. About 5 seconds in, I thought to myself...."ok, this class is 2 hours long and if one of those stupid tool bags (the husbands to the two women) makes another stupid comment, I'm gonna get up and have a freak out!" They were THE MOST ANNOYING PEOPLE EVER! One of the guys in particular was AN IDIOT! Just making border line dirty comments and seriously felt like he had to comment on everything. I looked at his wife with pity because I seriously think I would drop a bow (elbow) if I had to see his face while delivering. I basically felt like he ruined the experience and the other guy didn't help much either. He just laughed his annoying laugh at everything the other dude said. Needless to say, they were probably the most ghetto, most annoying people I have ever met! Anywho, we took a tour of the birthing center and went over some symptoms of pregnancy and did an overview of the breathing which we will go over more in depth next week. Tyler's team is playing again next week, so i will have to go alone. I think the class thinks I am lying about having a birthing partner. Oh well, what can ya do?
We stayed up until about 1am watching American Idol last night. We're dumb, because I seriously felt like I had been kicked in the face when I woke up this morning. Tyler was like, "I wanna turn it off, but I wanna see who goes through." We had it recorded, but of course couldn't wait. I really like Ellen as a judge on there. She is so hilarious and I can't wait until it get's down to crunch time and then the show will really take off. Stand by for awesome posts from me on that :)
I am wondering when I should turn in my two weeks notice for But seriously, I don't know how much more I have in me. The kids aren't too bad actually. When the new year rolled around, we got rid of all the older ones and got all the younger, quieter kids. It's just the cleaning up of toys and running kids to the bathroom that is killer. I am actually looking forward to going back to Relief Society once I have the baby. I know, shocking!!!!


  1. Ha, I might have to drive up there to go to class with you, if for no reason other than to see you put the smack down on those baby daddies. lol.

  2. I have a list.....
    1. Melk (Sam says MELK for Milk)
    2. Classic - ACCROST - for accross????
    3. Birthing Class - just hit those guys and chalk it up to the pregnancy!
    4. Give the 2 week notice - funniest thing I've heard in a long time. Would love to see bishops face. "This serves as my 2 week notice bishop" lol
    5. A.I. is crazy. Sam wont watch it with me :(
    Cudn't believe the black guy with the brown hoodie got sent home. He was in group #2 when they divided them into 3 groups......
    Love the little 16 yr old raised by his aunt. Also so glad rockerchick went home - annoying!
    6. Lets have a phone date to catch up?

  3. WHAT DID I TELL YOU??!!??!!! Birthclass is where all the Freaks and Weirdy's come out... it's worse than a hillbilly reunion, man. And I'm secretly so pleased that you get to witness the circus firsthand... people don't seem to believe me when I tell them to watch for the douchebaggish husbands out there!!!

    ps. when Idaho folk say "pellow" instead of "pillow"... i try not to laugh at them. and point. and slap them in the face.

  4. You seriously crack me up everytime I read your blog. Good luck with the birthing class.

  5. I think I'm a word snob too, it must be a Devine/Irish thing. Lucas just said "something was unorganized" and I corrected him that it was disorganized. Ah well, not our fault that we're smarter...ha ha. I'm enjoying American Idol myself. The talent is off the chain dawg....uh, I was channeling Randy for a minute there. I love the little 16 year old kids too, there are lots that I'm rooting for and several that I'm already wishing to get the boot. You might just have to lay down the law in the birthing classes if those guys women can't keep them in check.
    Love ya tuts!
