I lost the Toy Story Disc 1 for a while and we only had the "Making of" Disc 2 in the car. This came home from school yesterday in his backpack. Looks like Henry Mc wants to be a computer animator, or a competitive juice drinker. Either way, I'll be proud.

Love this book. I found it at the Goodwill near us and thought the title was fitting, but when I got it home I remembered why the Frances books have stood the test of time. In this one, Frances' mother warns her to be careful playing with a certain friend. And after being duped again by her sneaky little pal she learns about payback and that "being careful is not as much fun as being friends". I love it.

What's the difference? 8 ladies propositioned for a night out in Tacoma on a Wednesday, 6 RSVPd yes, 3 actually showed. For me, it was like medicine, like the kind your doctor prescribed for that c-section you had 4 weeks ago and you don't really need anymore but still have a few left of. I digress. Ok, so what? So, I have 4 chins in this dark photo, Brit had a baby hidden on her right hip and Malia had her faced waxed before dinner. We're not perfect. Who is? But we needed a night out, in whatever form we could get it. We took it. Thanks pals. I love you both to the ends of the earth. Now I'll be waking my kids up to give the babysitter a ride home. That's life, the good life.

I bought a bay of lockers at the Re-Store in Ballard yesterday...and a few other things for the basement to be revealed later (likely much later, as they require some creativity to put to use, but were too cool to pass on) These 6 lockers (no. 95-100) will greet our shoes and coats and backpacks when we come home. A happy homecoming for the neat freak.
I have 4 very large walls to paint tomorrow before the electrician comes to finish his work Tuesday. The polished concrete floors are wearing a coat of brown paper awaiting the mess of drywall. There is still much to do, but I am hopeful things will move along quickly in the next week or two. In the mean time, this is what I am looking at tonight. I'm a lucky girl.
