Some random thoughts this morning:
*Andy packed the coffee filters… thank you, Crick, for the paper towel trick. Paper towels also work as a filter when placed in the filter-thingie properly.
*Katrina is hitting the Big Easy pretty badly. My heart goes out to those folks in that area and a tiny bit of me is so grateful that it didn’t hit Florida two weeks ago. (I’m a lucky dog, I say.)
*I did not abide by the early to bed rule last night and forgot that even though I’m a night owl, the girls were up by 7AM. I’m paying for it this morning.
*God gave me a two kinds of kids: Ashleigh, the-delightful-in-the-morning-kind, and Sarah, the cranky-needy-whiny-until-I get-my-juice-and cheerios-kind.
*I’m in need of a pedicure. Pretty badly by CA standards.
*I only have three more morning walk days here in L.A.
*There are only 7 boxes left from those 2 huge moving boxes we bought at Costco. I’m too lazy to look up the site right now and link you. If you are interested, copy and paste: www.costco.com I’m a little worried that there won’t be enough boxes to hold all the random things left in the house to pack. We have filled the dumpster out there more times than I care to admit. I told Andy we are not buying one more thing. Ever.
*Three new babies have arrived in the past month: Ava Lauren, Hannah Grace, and Sarah Faith. Each little girl is beautiful. Congratulations to my new mommy friends (I will send a card once my cards are unpacked).
*I just thought of this after typing out that last one- we dropped by Target the other day and I bought 2 thank-you cards- I couldn’t believe how expensive tiny little thank-you cards are going for now. I am considering selling mine and turning a profit.
*My brother is taking the bus to school his year- my mom had to buy him a bus pass for $220. That is insane to me. Doesn’t he know that our dad had to walk to school in hurricanes when he was a kid?
*Some goofy weatherman on FOX had a roof (yes, a roof to a building!) land about three feet from where he was reporting. He decided to wrap up his fighting the Katrina winds at 145-MPH and go back into shelter.
