I have been running all day! This seriously might be the first time I've sat down for more than two minutes!

Today makes five weeks since I've had a diet soda. I'm pretty picky about what my kids eat and drink these days, and I felt hypocritical telling them no soda while I downed two or three cans a day. That, and the fact that artificial sweeteners are very bad for your body was enough to make me give it up for good. I've been drinking lots more water, and lots more tea, and I haven't even really missed the soda. So, yea for me!

Tomorrow we are going to do some Christmas shopping with the kids. We are headed to Cherry Creek mall because their decorations this season have a Narnia theme. The centerpiece of their display is a giant, walk-in snowglobe. You enter the snowglobe through two wardrobe doors, and once inside, the temperature drops and it begins to snow. Sounds very cool! We read The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe with the kids in October, and last week on our trip to Arkansas, we listened to The Magician's Nephew and to A Boy and His Horse on cd. So, needless to say, we're Narnia-crazed right now. Tomorrow should be really fun! If you've read the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (#2 in the series), I highly encourage you to read the first book, which is The Magician's Nephew. It was my favorite, and it explains some things about the second book that were really neat to know (especially the end!). So, get reading!
