Wednesday 05 October

Did...Googletalked with my hubby, ate Tomato soup with croutons, went to JCW's with my 2 of my girls, folded laundry, watched Top Chef, Just Desserts, listened to Bossypants on my iPod.

Thought..."I'm not ready for Fall", "I'm never going to be ready for my daughters to date", "I need to buy a shotgun".

Saw...A chicken running down the road (no lie!), ummmm...I'm still laughing about the chicken. Oh yeah, I also saw this:

Wished...I could sleep through the night (I can't remember the last time I went to bed and stayed asleep until morning, even with a sleep aid), Dulce de Leche cheesecake was fat free and calorie free.

Tuesday 04 October:

Did...I cooked breakfast for dinner. Yum! I think that's the best thing I did all day.

Saw...a jogger pick up a $1 bill he spotted on the ground, a dirty bathroom that needs to be cleaned.

Thought..."I should really work out tonight" and "I really don't want to work out tonight".

Wished...that I saw the $1 bill before the jogger, that my son wouldn't have told me the story about the boy in his class that ripped off a huge scab and then proceeded to smear blood all over his paper.

The End.

After a long absence from blogging, which I'm sure resulted in a few candle vigils mourning my disappearance, I'm back. My format will be a little different but I won't lie. It's pure laziness. I'm going to keep this as sort of a journal if you will. I will list things I did, saw, thought, & wished for the previous day. This is groundbreaking journalism people!!!! Names may, or may not, be changed....depending on how mad you made me OR how happy you made me.

Things I did.....cursed my alarm at 5:10am, shaved my legs (your welcome), ate my oatmeal with a spoonful of canned pumpkin (don't knock it 'til you try it), the hours of 8am to 4p were a blur but I'm pretty sure I worked, fixed dinner, fed the neighbor kid sugar,ran and almost puked, fed the neighbor kid more sugar, passed out. sweet daughter try diligently to master her lower case 'a'.

Thought...."I hate my alarm", "I'm in trouble with the neighbor kids mom", "I can't wait for Biggest Loser tomorrow night"

Wished....that Harry Connick Jr. would be my neighbor, running didn't hurt my feet, for a good night's sleep.

For the record - I confessed my dietary faux pas to my neighbor & I don't think she is pressing charges.

The countdown is on....

....Paige and Kennedy's dad moved to Seattle a few months ago. They wanted to send him a video message and because I can't seem to convert it into a format that can be all get to see it.

They are counting the days until they get to go and see him. Berkley HAD to be in the video too.

October 23rd Holiday

Did you know today is "Slap Your Co-Worker Day"? If you don't believe me Google it. Here are a few suggestions that seem fairly harmless.

My girls love to play volleyball and they are improving each year that they play. This is Paige's 3rd year and Kennedy's 2nd. Today's post is for Paige. I coach Kennedy's team so it's hard for me to take video and coach at the same time. Next week.

Paige is so very pleased at her overhand serve....and she should be. Here are a few videos. Please notice, for girls just playing for fun, how many end up on their knees diving for balls and how good their serves are. If you are interested in coming to watch her play let me know!

A few months ago my friend posted a "Pay it Forward" contest on her blog. I was one of the lucky people who received her gift.

Thank you Jen, I love it. I apologize it took me so long to blog about it. Isn't this purse adorable? If you want to look at the others go to her BLOG.

Sorry this is such a bad picutre. I took it while running out of the house this morning. If you go to her blog you will see a much better picture and drool over her sewing skilz.

As a reminder, here are the rules if you want to play.

1. Be one of the first THREE bloggers to leave a comment on this post, which then entitles you to a handmade item from me (yeah for handmade!).
2. Winners must post this challenge on their own blog, meaning that you will pay it forward, creating a handmade gift -anything!- for the first THREE bloggers who leave a comment on YOUR post about this giveaway!
3. The gift that you send to your 3 friends can be from any price range and you have 365 days to make/ship your item. This means you should be willing to maintain your blog at least until you receive your gift and have shipped your gifts. And, remember it’s the spirit and the thought that count!
4. When you receive your gift, blog about it!
