I saw this idea over at Crystal's place. I liked it, thought it was clever, and decided I'd steal it.
81-Number of pages of Animal Dreams that I read yesterday. I think this one is another Kingsolver winner for me.
12-Number of packed up boxes that are being stored in the spare room of my home.
2-Number of weeks that Food, Inc has been on my nightstand waiting to be watched.
At least a dozen-Times Jay has uttered the phrase, "Our Netflix account isn't paying for itself this month" in reference to the aforementioned documentary. I do most of the bill paying around here but Jay psychotically monitors the Netflix account in a way I didn't know was possible. When a movie sits around unwatched for more than a few days, he begins to twitch.
3-Number of times in the past week that I've attempted to farm on Facebook only to completely lose interest and have all my crops die. Obviously, this just isn't the game for me.
6-Number of baseboards I've painted white. (With more to come.)
1-Number of Mighty Beans found while moving furniture to paint said baseboards.
2-Minutes it took for the girl to declare the Mighty Bean her new favorite toy.
1-Number of times I said to the boy, "Don't touch that Mighty Bean. Your sister has grown attached to it and I don't want it lost."
Approximately 2-Minutes it took for the boy to lose the Mighty Bean. (sigh.)
$7.95 + $4.95 shipping and handling-What it would cost the boy to replace the Mighty Bean.
45-Minutes the boy searched the house before finding the Mighty Bean. The idea of having to spend his own money on something so trivial was a powerful motivational tool.
3-Number of times I've kicked a small blue Lego around the kitchen without bothering to pick it up.
