For today...Tuesday, October 11, 2011

On My Mind..I have been up since 3 and it is 4:40 am now. I'm at the point where I am so tired I can't sleep, if that makes any sense...need to get moving if I'm really going to make all the Christmas presents this year! I just don't have much ambition, probably because I'm tired, etc....

Outside My Window... we are in the middle of a warm spell ... Yesterday it was over 80 degrees which is just crazy for this time of the year!

What We're Reading...I'm still plugging away with Roots and I've also started The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde...Tucker is finishing up the newest Alvin Ho! and I think we may read The Wind in The Willows together next. We've been alternating: he reads a book by himself and then we read a book together because I just love reading together and discussing what we're reading...he's also reading Mrs. Frisby and the RATS of NIMH at school (with his class)

What We're Listening to...since I last did this, I finished A Clockwork Orange and Cleopatra by Stacy Schiff....I'm now listening to (and enjoying) Dracula.

What We're Watching...While I was so excited about this new season of shows, I'm just not as into it as I usually am...watching DWTS (liking Ricky Lake and JR) ; Survivor (not really liking anyone and considering not watching it all!) ; Amazing Race (like Lawrence and Zac, the father/son team...also watching Glee, The Big Bang Theory and whatever's on Nick...We've also "discovered" unlimited Netflix so we've been watching both X-files and The Wonder Years (two of our favorite shows) from the beginning; I think we are on episode 3 of both....we've also watched Baby's Day Out, Rookie of the Year, and Kangaroo Jack.

I am Hoping...to someday sleep beyond 4:30 am!

In the Kitchen....another busy week so nothing spectacular....

Around the House...laundry needs to be folded and more to be done...the upstairs is super clean and the downstairs, not so much...we've been on a mission to clean out the toys and we attacked the living room over the weekend which resulted in a backseat-full of toys for Goodwill...Michael's off today with Tucker so they are tackling the downstairs where most of the toys have ended up which is fine---I have reclaimed my living room! ... we put the Halloween decorations up and out.

Coming Up This Week...soccer practices tonight and Thurs...PTO meeting tomorrow night...going to Essex with my friend Joan on Sat...my mom;s bringing Tucker to a soccer game Sat and then to a birthday/sleepover at a friend's house...another soccer game on Sun and maybe the corn maze afterwards.

Picture Thought...
haven't taken many pictures this week....

I love when I come here and there's an update. Our adult theatre just did Dracula. Jonathan and I both talked about reading it, but haven't yet.
