I am the perfect housewife.

I haven't been on the internet as much lately. I've been cleaning my house.

Wait, what????

Yes, that's right. I am the perfect housewife. I look forward to doing the dishes, folding the laundry, mopping the floor. In fact, I can't wait until Bennett goes down for his nap so I can get cleaning.

Yep, perfect housewife. You didn't know?

Okay, okay, I'm cheating. You knew it was too good to be true.

I've been listening to audiobooks lately. It started on my weekly commutes to Park City, and then I just had to know what was going to happen in my book, and couldn't wait a whole week to find out! So for the past few months I've been doing my housework with my earphones in. I have listened to a. lot. of. books. Or at least a lot of hours of book.

Maybe it's bad. Maybe I should be spending less time escaping to somewhere else while doing the mundane things in life. Maybe I shouldn't sneak and listen while we are at the park and my kids are running around me. Maybe I should be enjoying silence and meditation sometimes.

But... my house is consistently cleaner when my hubby comes home, the dishes consistently done, and the laundry is washed and put away a little faster. Can that be a bad thing?

Books I've recently been enjoying:






(can you tell how much I love Brandon Sanderson?)


(currently listening to)

We have a subscription with Audible.com so we get a credit every month that goes toward the download of one audiobook. Josh even listens to his textbooks as he drives to school up in Salt Lake.

What did people do before audiobooks????

Agent J and Agent B


Agent J and Agent B, at your service.


that's right, we're talkin to YOU.


no problem is too great, no secret too secretive for our top secret services.


i hate to say this, Agent J...


but the potential client is looking rather dubious.


hmmm, i think you're right, Agent B.


it's time to put our money where our mouth is.
show 'em the portfolio.



HIGHLY CLASSIFIED TOP SECRET COVERT OPERATIONS PORTFOLIO
TOP SECRET AGENT, DOUBLE AGENT, AND TRIPLE AGENT OPERATIONS

Case #2455

carefree, seemingly innocent play...


yes, really the means of procuring a top secret hideout

complete with impenetrable fortifications.

Case #65-F

oh, what lovely hair you have! pay no attention to the secret photo my partner is taking with his phone while you are distracted...


and the fact that he is sending it back to headquarters via text message as we speak.

Operation "Infiltrate-the-Heart-of-the-Enemy's-Lair-By-Sending-In-A-Harmless-Toy-Box"






Classified File #26-A

have no fear:


with our subtle and sneaky techniques


the enemy won't even know we are here.


(who doesn't keep a hamper full of dirty laundry with them during all of their most confidential meetings?)

Case #375

oops... the chairs fell over.


don't mind my partner while he types in the code
for the hidden compartment located on the underside of his chair.



indeed, as is evidenced by this small sample of our work...

no box is too small for us to fit into,


no hidden message is too difficult for us to locate,


no mess is too messy for us to make,


and no one ever sees through our sweet,

innocent,

even angelic façade.


nobody ever suspects us.

would you?



**END OF CONFIDENTIAL, OFF-THE-RECORD CORRESPONDENCE**

we're Agent J and Agent B.


give us a call.
you won't regret it.
