Back to the Bullets

  • Shoshannah rolled from her belly to her back and then to belly again tonight. It only took the lure of a pair of scissors and a roll of packing tape to get her all the way over. *Don't worry, Xavier picked it all up before she got there*
  • I feel like I'm too busy lately, like my life is running me instead of the other way around.
  • Marc has been working crazy hours, which is good for our bank account but not good for our family. :-(
  • I'm still waiting for my camera...
  • I watched my first live runway show from fashion week today!...via youtube. It was still exciting! It was Naeem Khan, and I actually liked some of his stuff.
  • Xavier wrote a paper for school about why he likes to read books. "I like to read because it fills my head." I like to read because of that too! I think he's read 4 books this past week!
  • I'm not sure if I've mentioned this before but I cut almost all of our TV time down to nothing (4 hours per week). I LOVE it! My kids read books and play with their toys now! I didn't think I was letting them watch THAT much before. But they hadn't been playing like they do now.
  • Today Paulie and Gaius came down the stairs dressed in Leia's tutus. They wouldn't let me take a picture.
  • Gaius really wants to name a baby "Mean-O". I told him someday he could when he was a daddy, his reply was "But daddy's dont' have babies." Yeah! I kind of doubt any woman is going to let him name a child she is carrying that name either. Sorry buddy!
  • We had to reschedule the birthday party last week because of the funeral. So now it's this week. I need to make a cake.
  • Leia is finally getting more confident about her reading. Before this week she wouldn't even try to read by herself. Now she's sounding out everything she sees. It's so weird how kids do that. Xavier was the same way, suddenly something just clicked! And thank goodness, I was seriously starting to doubt my reading teacher skills.
  • Today was beautiful!!! Please please please let spring be here soon. I'm itching to get out there and pound the pavement. Right now I couldn't even if I wanted to because the snowbanks are taller then me and the people from my town have a hard enough time not running me over when they can see me. *seriously! I've almost been hit 3 times. And I'm following the pedestrian safety rules!!*
  • Last but not least, I think I'm close to halfway through the youth group pictures! I scanned some of my favorite ones today! They were of a canoe trip we took on the reservoir. I have a lot of crazy memories from that trip! Like when Marc was basically picked up by a girl in our youth group and shoved through this 6 ft. tall man-made twine web to no one waiting hands, like there was supposed to be. And how my best friend got hypothermia because her sleeping bag got soaked during a rain storm, I guess she ended up sleeping in a tent with Marc (which i guess he felt very uncomfortable about). But I stayed up and played cards with a bunch of guys, and one of them told me I had pretty eyes. Which I'll never forget even though it freaked me out then and still does a little today. Crazy, teenage memories!

And here it is way past my bedtime again. Well g'night and pleasant dreams!
