Just Some Thoughts

*Today Deacon told me that my new glasses may be too "perky" and that they reminded him of, "you know those girls who wear big dark glasses that no one really likes"

*Last week I tried on my wedding dress for the first time in 12 years.  It fit easily, and the only effort was for Noah having to button up all 50 buttons with no crochet hook.

*Everyn doesn't need toys, she just likes to climb up and down the steps

*I LOVE, LOVE my new Kindle.  I am reading too much perhaps, but I still love it

*I am planning to run tomorrow, but not today

*The papers in my life are overwhelming me.  This week I am going to figure out how to use my scanner and start scanning in children's "medium-good"  and "good" artwork.  Then I will throw out the "medium-good" stuff and file the rest.

*Still debating getting a maid service/helper kind of person.  I go back and forth, sometimes thinking I want to do that and sometimes thinking that I should just make the kids do more work.

*I don't like seafood that much, and yet I periodically get strong cravings to go to Red Lobster or Joe's Crab Shack.

*The boys are not happy to be back doing schoolwork again, legos are far more exciting.  I can't say as I blame them for their lack of enthusiasm, but we must get some momentum going!

*I need to go do my 10 minutes of cleaning to get the house slightly tidied up before bed- it is one of my new goals...

Now I want to see a picture with you in the glasses to see if I agree with Deke!

One of the things that you need to be careful of with house help is that sometimes your kids get used to having someone else do everything for them...cause they aren't "helping" mom. Some of the MK moms have said that they try to make sure that their kids know how to wash dishes, clean their rooms, etc. Maybe a middle school/high school helper would be good...someone to play with the kids or just help you around the house.

Regarding Deacon's comment on the glasses - is it the girls nobody likes or their glasses? I'm wondering from where in his experience that comment originated.
