Ron Swanson, I love you

Today I sneezed more than twenty-five times during my seminary lesson. Twenty-five times

It was quite lovely, especially since I sneeze like a man. No really, I do. I stopped counting after 25 because by then my brain was too fuzzy to keep track. I'm not sure whether I am sick or have allergies. Maybe it's a combination of the two because I don't feel like I ever really got over the cold I had a month ago. All I know, is that I've been running on empty all month, I haven't been making any progress on my growing to-do list, and it's a little overwhelming.

And when life gets overwhelming there's only one thing to do. Spend your morning watching The Voice, eating three meals, and looking up funny Ron Swanson gifs to cheer up. Naturally. 

When I remember that I get to sleep in every day next week since there is no school. 


When I think about doing the dishes. Or wearing pants when I get home.


When I remember that I have leftover turkey, mashed potatoes, and gravy in the fridge since we had Thanksgiving #1 for Sunday dinner. 

When Dallin asks me what I did when he was at work.

No answer

How I feel about breakfast food. 
And all food, let's be honest. 

When I don't get anything productive done all day.

When I found my forgotten stash of Reese's in the fridge.

27 Ways To Be As American As Ron Swanson

Last of all, in honor of today's events...


  1. Ron Swanson is the best fictional human ever. Better than Anne Shirley, even, and that's saying a lot.

    1. Indeed, that is saying a lot. I might have to agree, even though Anne has a very special place in my heart as a fellow redhead. :)

  2. Mikaela... you are HILARIOUS!!! I love reading your posts. And I'm looking forward to your #conferencedoodles. Thanks for being YOU!!
