this and that

It's still raining! It was coming down pretty hard when I left this morning. Thank you, rain gods!

My husband is leaving me tomorrow to spend a few days in Utah with his kiddos. This will be our first time apart since before we were married. :-( I'm really grateful that he gets to spend time with the kids though, especially since they don't have school Monday and Tuesday, and Wednesday is Halloween. They will have a lot of fun. I just wish I got to go too! I can't believe it's already been two months since we were with them.

The only thing I'm looking forward to about Jared being gone is watching the entire last season of Friends on DVD. Thank you Netflix! And maybe the last season of Sex and the City too if I'm feeling kinda scandalous. ;-)

Also, Ohio State football is #1!!! Yay! Saturday night they are playing Penn State and ABC is showing the game. Woohoo!!! I've only been able to watch one other game, so I'm excited. Go Bucks!

And lastly, I can't resist these types of quizzes. This one is fun. Take it and come back and tell me what your accent is. Below you will see mine. For the record, I was born in Utah, moved to Ohio at age 4, moved to Utah at 18 for college, and am now in North Carolina. So I guess all that gives me this....

What American accent do you have?

Western. Like Midland, Western is another accent that people consider neutral. So, you might not actually be from the Western half of the country, but you definitely sound like it.

And if you're not from the West, you are probably one of the following:
(a) A Pittsburgher - the quiz can't tell the difference;
(b) Someone from Canada (probably southern Ontario) who doesn't have a Canadian accent;
(c) Someone from northern New England who doesn't have a New England accent; or
(d) Someone from Texas or the Heartland who was born after 1980.
You are definitely not from New York, New Jersey, Chicago, Detroit, the Deep South, etc.</font>

Take this quiz now - it's easy!
We're going to start with "cot" and "caught." When you say those words do they sound the same or different?


  1. I'm always such a chicken when my husband leaves on business trips. I can't wait till my boys get big enough to protect me! Have fun watching your shows while he's gone. I used to watch SITC too!

  2. My accent is western too...which fits since I have lived in the west almost my whole life. Isn't it funny how everyone thinks that the way they speak is correct and that everyone else has an accent.
