A Numeric Puzzle for You…

Jan 11, 2013 | Uncategorized | 12 comments

For good grades and great attitudes the kids earn “Friday Night Movie Night” — this typically consists of some “Tinker” movie for Hoolie and then a small argument ending in the required compromise as Aidan and Amélie choose the second movie.  It’s almost always Ice Age 1, 2 or 3 or Madagascar 1, 2, or 3.  I don’t know what would be wrong with good old Mary Poppins.  After a long week WHY would I want to hear 1.5 hours of Ray Romano’s voice???
Friday Night Movie Night for the kids = Friday Night Pinterest Night for Momma.   I am so excited!!! 

And now, for the numbers…
Yes, I am a dork.
I fancy myself Sydney Bristow… still… after all these years.

‘Member her crazy ability to memorize numbers?
Well, if you want to play, all you have to do is figure out the last number(s) in this sequence.  It’s purely, Parisienne Farmgirl.
And, remember, I already confessed to being a dork.
That’s my last apology about this post!

Oh, and tonight… finally after all my non-stop harassing, my Mom is going to join the world of Downton Abbey.  Could I be more geeked?

Doubt it.
(If you don’t want spoilers – don’t go to my “Daft for Downton” board.  I’m all caught up to the end of the third season.)

    I love math problems. I tried to do this quickly before I left school for the weekend. This seemed to be one logical answer,but it might not be the logical answer you had.


  2. Michele Smith

    We LOVE Downton in this house, we’ve already watched all of season 3 as well!

    i am a loser with numbers, and though i love sydney, i am not up to par to even try. trying to teach my aiden fractions and crap right now-ugh.

    yay for downton! i have season 3 on hold as soon as the local video store gets it in a couple weeks. now i have to avoid your downton board-ahhh!

    please show hous epictures/videos soon. i’m living my farm dreams vicariously through you and am not patient 😉

    Your mom is in for a treat. It will be fun to talk to her about all the splendor of Downton. I’ve watched all of the episodes to date with my hubby, who gets almost as excited to watch them as I do…he really gets me!

  5. Sheila

    I am a huge Alias fan, but not a numbers girl! I am DVR’ing Downton Abbey. I’ve held off on watching the first episode. It will be a reward for getting some tasks accomplished this weekend! Hope you are feeling well. I just repinned a bunch of your stuff on Pinterest. Wanted to share a tip I read to help you get to sleep: I tried it and thought it worked for me: rub a few drops of lavender essential oil on the bottom of your feet. Worst case scenario is that you have fabulous smelling pieds!

    I’m terrible with numbers, but am thrilled to see you back!

    You are an absolute hoot. Thanks for the fun you put into the day. Have a great day yourself.

  8. Enchanted Moments

    We are yet to begin the third series, a couple more weeks for us Aussies…and I cant wait! I am content with the next series of Upstairs, Downstairs for now….and Mary Poppins, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang,( except for the children catcher bit) Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and The Wizard of Oz (except for the blue flying monkey bit) are all winners in our house!

  9. Christy

    so glad you are back You are too funny? Hope your health is better. Can’t wait to see the house transformations.

    Oh, I know the number you clever, clever gal! I’m gonna say 5 for “maman de cinq!”
    I visited you Pinterest last night and saw your homebirthing pins.
    Now, that explains the “other health problems.” Congratulations! And hang in there. I can’t imagine how tired you must be.

    Take care,
