Things to Note: This post has absolutely NO point.
1) We are 3 weeks without seeing a spider now. Thank you all for your nightly prayers dedicated to the eradication of my spider infestation. Praise Jesus and Amen.
2) I moved Tuck's room out of where it was and into a smaller room. I moved the guest bed into his old room and things fit a little better now. Tuck loooooooves the carpet. Because he's crazy.
3) Filed safely under "Things I Don't Like Talking About" --
4) You guys. Have you ever heard of something called a Wet Brush? I brush my hair right out of the shower ... always have. I don't use combs (mostly because of a horrifying second grade experience that involved a comb curling iron and pain for daaaaays). Target sells these wet brushes that are inexpensive and don't pull, yank, or rip at your hair. Game. Changer ... especially if you have small kids with long hair and sensitive heads.
5) Blogs I'm enjoying lately: Hello! Happiness ... Mix and Match Mama ... Living In Yellow ... and Olive and Tate
6) I've been school shopping for myself and for The General. I've been going back and forth about winter shoes for him since he's becoming more independent (aka: he likes to walk to the car instead of me carrying him to the car). He needs tennis shoes, of course, but I was also looking at these:
Or ... if you're like me and you like a little adventure - Amazon has the same boot, only in cute grey camo. Anyone have experience with Bogs? Just need to know if they're a good snow shoe/rain show. Lemme know. :)
7) Currently cooking in the crock pot: three chicken breasts, smothered in a jar of salsa, a packet of taco seasoning, and a bottle of Miller Lite. If it tastes as good as it smells, you guys .... Lawdy.
8) I'm boycotting Harper Lee's new novel Go Set A Watchman. ...Kind of because I love, love, love Atticus deep in my soul, and kind of because of this quote from the New York Times:
The Ur-fact about Harper Lee is that after publishing her beloved novel, “To Kill a Mockingbird,” in 1960, she not only never published another book; for most of that time she insisted she never would. Until now, that is, when she’s 89, a frail, hearing- and sight-impaired stroke victim living in a nursing home. Perhaps just as important, her sister Alice, Lee’s longtime protector, passed away last November. Her new protector, Tonja Carter, who had worked in Alice Lee’s law office, is the one who brought the “new novel” to HarperCollins’s attention, claiming, conveniently, to have found it shortly before Alice died.
9) THIS article about "Insta-Shaming" left me nodding my head and whispering yep, yep, yep! And I love how she writes in general, so check out her other stuff.
10) I had a party this weekend and "The Tribe" (a term for us coined by BFF Suzy) gathered again. All different ages, all different places in our lives, all different backgrounds, all different lives, and yet -- and yet ... They are some of my truest and most faithful companions. Love them.
And? If you're keeping track? That's TWICE I've blogged this week. #gotellitonthemountain
. About Moi .
I love, love, love flannel sheets and I am really passionate about lists on post it notes and most of the time I'm sad that no one else is as excited as I am about Diet Mountain Dew. I also adore run-on sentences.
