Cut it Out, TimeLife!

Man, I keep seeing the commercial for “Worship Together” – the best of modern Christian music. I know what you’re thinking, but hey, remember, I’m a big Michael W. Smith fan. And there are always my Veggie Tales CDs. Anyway, I don’t want to get locked into a music club, especially not a Contemporary Christian […]

Well, I’ve Seen Worse

I was feeling pouty today so I treated Junior to a copy of Stitch, the Movie to cheer us up. I went into this expecting the worst, and it’s not the worst so I’m actually happy. Man, I love that Lilo character. She’s my favorite Disney female after Mulan. Maybe tied with Dori from Finding […]

What Got Into Me?

Well, wasn’t I productive today? We got up, headed to the post office, then the grocery store. Then I washed all the floors, read some of my mail, then decided if I cleaned out the spare bedroom, I could move some of the toys up there. I’d rather them be upstairs than in the basement […]

I think the temporary tattoo I bought yesterday is too big. Actually, the one I’d picked out was little, but the guy could only find the big one in all the drawers, so I said fine. It’s a lovely moon, sort of astrologically in nature, even though I’m not into that stuff very much. It […]

Oriented

Last night – CPR from 6pm to 10pm. So far I’m certified in Adult and child, tomorrow night (6 to 10 again…yuck) we do infant and first aid. Feel free to NOT need CPR around me, although I do feel strangely powerful with these skills. I just don’t want to have to ever use them. […]

Snacky Snack?

I’m in a hungry kind of mood. I hate that. Actually, I’m taking a first aid class from 6 to 10pm so I figure anything I eat now will count toward my food requirement for getting through the evening. What the hell was I thinking? And it’s 6 to 10 again on Thursday! I hope […]
