This Is the Day

...I must take my eldest daughter to Hobby Lobby. She received a big ol' dollhouse and needs glue and to pick out some furniture. She has been asking to go since the shopping fiasco on Dec 26th. AND I, have been putting her off. So now it has been five years in kid time that she has been waiting. But it is sooooo cold outside. I am fighting with all I have not to hibernate. It helps that we had hibernate day all day yesterday. I would like to sleep all winter, but I cannot allow myself the privilege.

The new year is here at last. We have had a really good week. Lots of fun and funny things. Lots of games. If you do not own Rush Hour, I can't recommend it enough. It is a one-person puzzle. The goal is to get your cool little red car out of a traffic jam. As soon as one of us puts it down, someone else picks it up. It is as addicting as tetris for puzzle people. Scrabble Slam has been a let-down so far but I will wait until someone besides Lilly plays it with me to make a final call.

Last thing, I am reading Same Kind of Different As Me and it is phenomenal!! It is going to be one of my top ten faves for sure. It is a true story. Very touching and at the same time uplifting.

I guess that's all I got. HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Oh yes, I too want to hibernate. It's just SO COLD.

I meant to read that book a while back. Thanks for reminding me. I'll put it back on the list.

RUSH HOUR was one of Kevin's FAVORITE pasttimes.

SAME KIND OF DIFFERENT AS ME was one of my favorite books of 2009.
