For today...Monday, August 15, 2011

On My Mind..I really need to get back into blogging...we've been back from vacation for a week no and I still have to post about it...Tucker and I got hooked into an "extreme Couponing" marathon on TLC yesterday and while it was fascinating, I also wondered how realistic it is. Seriously I like to get things cheap and/or free as much as the next person, but do you really need to get 93 bags of croutons just because they are free?!

Outside My has finally stopped raining! ... and it has cooled off!

What We're Reading...recently, I finished The Virgin's Lover by Philippa Gregory and The Chocolate War by Robert Cormier and just started Summer of my German Soldier by Bette Greene...Tucker has been reading Matt Christopher and Encyclopedia Books this summer as well as some Magic School Bus books my mom's neighbor gave him.

What We're Listening to...I just finished Sisterhood Everlasting by Ann Brashares and while I wasn't thrilled with it, it ended pretty well...I'm now listening to Sing You Home by Jodi Picoult...Tucker and I listened to Tuck Everlasting and we both really enjoyed it.

What We're I mentioned, Tucker and I enjoyed Extreme Couponing yesterday...happy with SYTYCD results...still watching reruns of Two and a Half Men and Big Bang Theory...anything on Nick, particularly iCarly and Victorious...just watched The Outsiders on Netflix and can't believed I never saw it before!

I am sleep better tonight

In the Kitchen....chicken pot pie, fish, chicken

Around the House...dishes are done...laundry is all done, just waiting to be folded!

Coming Up This practices Tues and Thurs...he has a friend's birthday party on Sat...New Britain Rock Cats baseball game on Sun.

Picture Thought...
Tucker had a soccer tournament this weekend (unfortunately they only played one day; it got rained out on Sunday!). Here Tucker leads the way down the field!

Good to hear from you again! I've watched that TLC show too and it is ridiculous all the stuff those people end up with. It's called hoarding! :0) Speaking of hoarding, that's the show that I love.
