Things are looking up.

Things are looking up, oui? At least that's what I am going to convince myself with this handy-dandy list. Here goes.

  • E surprised me by coming home early last night and taking me to dinner.
  • Lunch with the bestie. Love her. Glad we could have lunch; it's been too long.
  • Abe Lincoln with K and Addie tomorrow.
  • Plenty of Froot Loops laying around the house, in teeny little boxes leftover from camping. I love fruit with a "ui", but froot with two "o"s is bomb. Diggity.
  • The cheap self-applied pink zebra-striped toenail polish has outlasted camping and laziness at home, and is still going strong two weeks later.
  • My kids rock. Right now they're playing Wii and I've heard the following two things in the last five minutes: "Henry, you're stinkin' weird" and "If you're going to choose salami and cheese, we're not going to be able to play anymore. That's the worst thing that could happen." What? Yeah, I don't get it either.
  • Mom and Dad. Pool. Lounge chair. Less than a mile away. Win.
  • All this running is making me tan. Side effect of being not 18: being not tan. Running has done some good work in that area. Not that I have done any running this week. Leave me alone.
  • Having a new radio station in town dedicated to the "oldies" of the 90's somehow validates my grown upness.
  • The California State Bar Exam is in FIVE DAYS! FIVE DAYS, I tell you. After that, I get my husband back. Woot.
  • I have a blog. I love my blog.
  • I love finding people on Facebook that I haven't heard from in a long time.
  • Tonight is the super-duper 100th episode of SYTYCD. I'm a little jazzed. Pun intended.
  • I just started crocheting the most beautiful green afghan. Contain your jealousy, though I know it will be difficult.
  • I'm nearing the end of The Thorn Birds (book, not movie) and while I'm in a hurry to see how it ends, I am dragging it out because it's too good and I know I'm going to be sad when Meggie, Fee, and Ralph leave me. At least I have the miniseries to look forward to. And to end my sentences in prepositions with.
  • Mad Men Season 2 came out on DVD recently. I still have a season and a half left of LOST. A full supply of TV to feed my addiction has been lined up. Score.
  • I am no longer sick. And there was much rejoicing. Yeeaaahh....


  1. What is your pattern? I am working on a baby blanket and I am doing a single crochet twice in every other stich. But I know you have a favorite you have more details you could share?

  2. A radio station dedicated to the "oldies" of the 90s? Can I get it online? :)

    When I first read SYTYCD I thought, MY GOD they're filming new "Sex & The City" episodes. And then I realized my error and tried for a good 60 seconds to figure out what that acronym stood for.

    So You Think You Can Dance, right?
