*I have a cold, and it’s sucking the life out of me. This is the first time I’ve been sick in a LONG time, and I’m certainly thankful for that, but I’m fighting the urge to just go lay on the couch.
*I don’t know why I wait until I’m miserable with sinus pain/pressure to do this, but that Netipot-type squeezy-bottle-thing works wonders. For real. I can breathe through my nose for a few hours after using it. Magic, and totally worth the pain of me doing it kinda wrong, but apparently right enough to get some relief.
*WHY do I wait 6 months to edit and upload pictures to Shutterfly? Why do I do this to myself? Ugh. It’s totally worth the effort…the boys love looking through our albums, and so do I. I just wish I didn’t let so much time elapse between working on them.
*The 4 y.o. REQUESTED a 6:15pm bedtime on Saturday night, after being worn out from his sleepover the night before (more on that in the next post).
*An exciting Pinterest update: I’ve added a “recipes I’ve tried” board to my wall, and switched the other to “recipes I’d like to try.” A couple of people I know have already done this, and I would LOVE to see other people do this, too, so I know what people I know have tried and liked.
*Try to contain your joy over this family development, but Matt and I have started sharing a Google calendar, and it’s kinda life-changing. We both enter our events in the calendar, so the old back-and-forth emailing of the schedules has stopped. AND, for added fun, we have been creatively editing each others’ entries into the calendar, so when I get a pop-up reminder on my phone for an event, it often says something funny. Matt – I promise to never edit your entries so much that you don’t know where you’re supposed to be and when.
*Old episodes of “The Office” with Michael Scott are so dang funny. So funny. I want to own every season now.
*Looking for a way to help others? My boys are doing Hoops for Heart (instead of Jump Rope for Heart) on February 3, and they’re collecting donations online. CLICK HERE to go to their site (yes, it just says Bennett…we’re pooling donations under his name because it’s just easier to have one). Help us reach our goal!
*And here’s another easy way to help someone out: my friend Jill at Hagler Happenings is collecting money (small donations via Paypal) to buy a mom who was recently diagnosed with a brain tumor some gas cards to help her get to and from her treatments.
Ok. More tomorrow on our first 12 in ’12 date (which, thankfully, predated my cold by about 12 hours)!
