And now, Random Thoughts:
At first glance these may not fit in with the vow of kindness I pledged to yesterday, but I beg to differ. When someone is being a cock or a douche, I think I would be doing the nice thing by telling them so. I bought them at ScotiaMade and they were only $6 for 8 mini notes. Jay thinks we will be buying them weekly.
*Yesterday it rained here for the first time in I don't know how long. The girl wanted to play in it so I allowed her to, as long as she promised not to jump in the giant mud puddle at the end of the patio.
Which of course means she did jump in the giant mud puddle at the end of the patio. To make it worse, she then came inside completely covered in mud from head to toe and laughing about her disobedient ways. Of course I was furious so I grabbed her up, placed her in the shower, and turned the water on, not waiting for it to warm up. (Yeah, I know....I handled that really well. I expect to be notified about receiving my mom of the year award any day now. Also....yes, she wants to wear that blue dress every day. I choose my battles.)
*Here is a picture of my son reading on his own, without me having to threaten him. I love it!*Speaking of reading, I am almost finished with book 48, The Wonder Spot by Melissa Bank. It's a collection of short stories all centered around one main character, a gal named Sophie Applebaum. Next up, I'll be reading No one belongs here more than you by Miranda July. As of this moment I have no idea what book fifty is going to be. I have a few books lined up on the nightstand, but Jay says I should make it something big like War and Peace. Any suggestions? And don't suggest War and Peace or The Odyssey. It ain't gonna happen.
