For today, Monday, March 8, 2010
On My Mind...tired from all the cleaning I did this weekend but also feeling really good, too! I'm planning on going through the rest of the house; it definitely needs it!
Outside My Window...it is dark, of course! Today was the warmest day we have had yet! Definitely looking forward to Spring!
What We're Reading...Finished Silver Bells by Luanne Rice and now reading Standing Tall by C. Vivian Stringer. I had started it before I got the Twilight books for my birthday. I am determined to read through the pile of books that have been on the corner of my bureau before I get any others! With Tucker, I am reading Who Was Harry Houdini? When he was a baby, I called him Houdini because he could get the blanket off his feet no matter what he did! His latest 'trick" is changing into his soccer uniform while buckled in the car seat while I am driving the car (not that I encouraged this, I didn't even know he did it until he told me!) He was wondering who Houdini was and I found this great book! It's actually pretty interesting! His favorites this week were Hungry, Hundry Sharks and How George Radbourn Saved Baseball by David Shannon.
What We're Listening to...Halfway through Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister by Gregory Maguire.
What We're Watching...still loving the cowboys on Amazing Race...missed Survivor so I don';t know who is gone...watched Biggest Loser but fell asleep before it ended!...Still liking Undercover Boss and now Pawn Stars on History channel.
I am hoping...to keep up with both my blogs more often!

Some Picture Thoughts...
Yesterday we went with Tucker's Cub Scout Den to make pizzas. Here he carries the pizza with the other boys to the lady who put it in the oven...
Trying the pizza-it was yummy!
I got this TV when I was 12. It went with me to 4 apartments and then here for the last 10 years. I finally admitted it was time to get rid of it-after 28 years, I guess my parents got their money's worth! (we replaced it with one of my uncle's TVs which is only 8 years old!)
