Just enough time to do some thinking out loud.
I never thought I'd hear myself say that I long for humidity, but I do. It is so dry here. My hands are cracking (despite lotion) and my hair is so brittle. Just a little moisture would be nice.
And speaking of weather, it's been BEAUTIFUL here since Friday with highs in the 60s. Very unseasonal, but I'm NOT complaining.
Lots of my southern Facebook/Twitter friends have been talking about the snow they have today, and here I am contemplating capris. It's nice to flip weather patterns for a change.
Anyone ever "unfriended" a friend on Facebook? I'm ready to drop a few of mine because the status updates are just too much. (Who's worried I'm talking about them? *wink*)(Don't worry because the ones I'm talking about probably don't read my blog).
My house smells delicious right now because I have this in the crockpot.
Did the Obama girls steal the show this morning or what? Those two are adorable. Should be fun to watch the for them next four years.
My son will be twelve in 3 short weeks. How did that happen???
He's a great kid. John and I are so proud of him for jumping into the middle school youth group at our church. He *loves* it, and has made some fun new friends.
I'm having a really hard time getting back into a routine since Christmas break.
I think it's because we haven't had a full week since we started back. We've missed the last three Mondays...for a teacher workday, snow, and MLK day. I could get really used to 4 day weeks.
Then again, I really don't like starting my week on Tuesdays. It throws me (way) off.
Anyone (local only) need Girl Scout cookies? We're pitifully behind on sales this year. I find it hard to push a first grader to sell, sell, sell. (So I don't).
I hope to have some time to read tonight. Translate: I hope the kids have minimal homework. I only have a few more pages in Drowning Ruth and it's getting very suspenseful.
Speaking of reading...Sarah got the first three Nancy Drew books for Christmas and she devoured them. I was SO happy she finally got into them (been trying forEVER to get her interested in Nancy Drew). She loved them just as I knew she would. They were my favorites growing up and I read them over and over and over. She wants to read them in order and she's on the wait list for #4.
I was reading some old posts on John's blog this afternoon. I know I'm a bit partial, but I think he's a brilliant writer. Anyway, I loved this post. SO true.
I probably need to go...the Brownies call! (And I'm not talking about chocolate either...you know I can't stand the stuff, right?)
