1) I need natural sunlight. One of the first things I do every morning is open almost all the downstairs blinds. Except now the sun isn't coming up until about 8am which makes getting out of bed a little harder. And it's only mid-October. Lots of darkness ahead.
3) I managed to both sneak in AND eat an entire packet of pretzel M&Ms (my favorite) over the course of two weeks, without either of my boys finding out. I feel rather sneaky and proud about this although I should probably clue Matt in. But not Luke, for obvious "3 year olds have enough energy and don't need extra sugar" reasons. In my defense, it was a rather stressful few weeks with going on two months of having our house up on jacks and hearing our car needed a $4,900 repair (it ended up being much less). Chocolate was necessary.
4) I got my second flu shot of my life this week. The reason I got it? Not to avoid the flu but because Target would give you a $5 gift card if you got it there. Apparently that's my price to have stuff injected into me. I have done more for just $5.
5) We watched Mary Poppins with Luke a few months ago and since then the soundtrack (or parts of it...there are a lot of songs in that movie!) has been on frequent play. I say this with much love and respect for my husband but the line:
"Although we adore men individually, we agree that as a group, they're rather stupid."Is the best line in any Disney song ever.
