life in numbers

3/5 - number of fights at school / days last week

4.5 - school days til Spring Break

3 - times coacher has forgotten my birth date

0 - number of times coacher has forgotten shooter's birth date (coacher will debate this, but it's true when you look at the bare facts…i’m not offended or mad. i just like to pester him about it.)

8 - number of weekends in february and march

.5 - number of free weekends we have/had in february and march

1 - number of referrals i wrote first semester

3 - number of referrals i have written so far in the 3rd quarter alone

13 - average number of times i went to the YMCA per month in January and February

9 - average number of times i saw "the barenaked lady" at the YMCA (how uncomfortable! she is there m/w/f, by the way...i now try to do most of my YMCA workouts Tuesday and thursday...)

7 - my fav number

3 - number of hours i napped last sunday (i usually don't take naps...)

6 - number of hours left until i have a master's degree.

8.31 - number of months we've been married.

8.31 - number of months i've felt cherished by my husband.

5 - number of times we had to re-do the new yard because it failed inspection due to "dirt clumps" and "dirt on the sidewalk." it was february, for pete's sake.

4 - number of track athletes i'm responsible for this spring. (distance ‘em!)

too many to count - number of chapters i'm behind in my daily Bible reading

1 - number of attempts i've made at dave ramsey-style bargaining (does that tell you anything about how successful i was? i should say that i didn't really "bargain," but my attempt was as close as this girl's going to get to bargaining with a sales clerk.

5:35 - average time the lotz household wakes up during the week.

2,276 - number of favors we owe my parents for all the work they've done lately.

this is completely unrelated, but i feel the need to say a little something about words (since i'm a certified english teacher and all):

uncomfortable - i love to hear coacher say this word. he enunciates every syllable.

touch - this is a terrible name for a restaurant. it makes me uncomfortable.

moist - so many people dislike this word i'm not even sure why it's in the dictionary.

spaz - this was my favorite word in middle school

unscum - i don't know the origin of this word in my life, but i usually use it in place of the word "unbelievable." if i don't say it out loud, that doesn't mean i'm not thinking it.

hillen - this partial word can go in from of many other words, and all of them actually make sense to me. weird.

not - i really liked the days when people would say a sentence, pause, and then say "not." it's biblical and everything.


  1. I seem to remember a Bethel house conversation about least favorite words and remember moist, panty and chunk making the final cut for You, Kelley and Andrea! :)

    Crazy the things you remember! ;)

  2. You know what's even more uncomfortable about touch.....the belly dancer that seems to make her entrance as soon as you get your food.

  3. crystal, are you serious? that is gross!!
