Random Thought-Daybook Style

Peace and quiet...what I'm enjoying while Tucker is at baseball practice. Michael is helping to coach again this year so I just meet him at the school by 5 and then I get 2 1/2 hours of glorious time to myself! Crazy isn't it?

Frustrated...by my recent bloodwork which showed that my potassium is again lower than the doctor feels comfortable with so they encouraged me to eat potassium-rich foods; I'm already eating a banana and an orange everyday. I see my doctor on Thursday so I'm hoping he'll take me off the blood pressure med that seems to be causing this! He'll also go over the EEG results with me, too.

Planning...Tucker's birthday sleepover party for next weekend. We got the games we ordered from Oriental Trading ( a roulette-type one and a plinko one) and I will also do a game with balloons that they stomp on and they get the prize that's inside (I'm not sure if that makes sense or not but I don't feel like fixing it!)

Just finished...reading two good books: the first, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, took me a little bit to get into but is basically about a young boy who's grandfather tells him stories about these kids who can do strange things. The boy thinks they are only made up but then finds out they are real. I liked the old pictures in the book, too. The second was Lone Wolf by Jodi Picoult. This one was about a man who gets into a car accident with his daughter and delves into the question of when is life over, when do you take someone off life-support, if ever? All really interesting issues to ponder.

Now I'm reading...Holes by Louis Sachar and listening to Then Came You by Jennifer Weiner. Tucker is reading Holes with his class and really likes it so he recommended I read it. I'll probably finish it tonight. Then Came You is about 3 women who play a part in a surrogate pregnancy (the egg donor, the surrogate, and the new mom (for lack of a better term) ). I'm not far into it yet but it seems pretty good so far. Tucker and I are reading The Mostly True Adventures of Homer P. Figg and really enjoying it.

I'm watching...I missed the premiere of Dancing with the Stars because the UConn women were playing but I will be watching that. Also watching Amazing Race and Survivor of course. Totally addicted to The Big Bang Theory re-runs as well as watching Wonder Years on Netflix.

We are busy...running to sports practices and games! Tucker has baseball practices Tues and Thurs nights and although he doesn't have a soccer game this week, he had two last week and will have two next week! We're also going to my cousin's house on Sunday to celebrate her twins 3rd birthdays!

The dishes...are calling my name and I should get them into the dishwasher before Michael and Tucker get home and think all I did for 2 hours was read blogs and go on Facebook ;) You won't tell, will you?!? lol

I AM TOTALLY HOOKED ON THE BIG BANG THEORY TOO!!! (Yes I did yell that!) Also I totally understood the description of the balloon game. I hope your potassium gets better. I've recently gotten into eating bananas covered in peanut butter.

Time by yourself is a wonderful thing! Hope your tests turn out good.
I love Survivor too and I also missed the Dancing with the Stars first episode, but will try to catch it.
