NINE words that would describe me:

  7. Full ~ the strawberry cheesecake muffin was amazing
  8. Excited ~ two days in a row at the pool!
  9. Entertained ~ Army Wives is back on

EIGHT great old movies to rewatch about this summer:
You've Got Mail
Follow that Bird
Cinderella- Rogers & Hammerstein
Gerbert or McGee & Me
The Rocketeer

SEVEN things that I've accomplished:
Folding 4 loads of laundry

Losing 45+ pounds

Watching two babies and even doing errands
Playing R's game with him
Walking 150+ miles
Getting Lil to sleep while they're taking down tile

SIX quick tips to simplify life:
1. When you're putting leftovers in the fridge, write what it is with a dry erase marker, then it comes right off when the dish gets washed.
2. Keep a sharpee and scissors in the kitchen.
3. Twice a year (or once a month if you're OCD like me) go through the entire house making three piles: trash, craigslist/ebay/consignment, goodwill. You will be amazed at how much you gather.
4. Put foil in the pan before you use it so you don't have to wash the pan.
5. Peel potatoes, shred cheese, etc on waxed paper then just pick up the paper and throw it away so you don't have to wash the countertop.
6. When clothes come out of the dryer, dump them on your bed, so you have to fold and put them away before you go to bed.

FIVE absolutely wonderful quotes worth remembering:
Life's not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.
Life expectancy would grow by leaps and bounds if green vegetables smelled as good as bacon or tasted as good as brownies.
Childhood is that wonderful time of life when all you need to do to lose weight is take a bath.
How long a minute is, depends on which side of the bathroom door you're on.
When I get a little money I buy books; and if any is left I buy food and clothes.

FOUR things I said yesterday more than once:
It's hot.
When will my shower be fixed?!?
I got Army Wives Season 1 on DVD.
She's awake.

THREE things that made me laugh this week:
Lilly talking
The little girl at the pool, "she's pukin"
Lilly laying on my stomach and puking all over my shirt, cheast, neck, face, hair and carpet...yet not a single drop on her

TWO Books on my want list right now:
The Secret Between Us by Barbara Delinsky
Change of Heart by Jodi Piccoult

ONE thing R's completely embarrassed about:
Falling through the step at a Friends' and breaking it

What is the new print you got and where is it going to go?

We have some of those old movies you want to watch, so maybe we can watch some while you're "home". Mom S

They're from a package-Martha White, Betty White, something like that. Blue paper bag package.

The new print says "When I was a child, they said look but don't touch. Beautiful things were just out of reach. But now I'm the grown up. I make the rules. Beauty in this house is meant to be touched. Beauty in this house is meant to touch you." It says that in fancy writing in the overall shape of a couch.
