things i accomplished today ...

we put plastic over our windows so we are winter-weather ready. (c'mon ... we live in a trailer ... this sort of thing is to be expected from us).

we took our trash to the dump. and our recycling to the recycler.

i washed all our sheets. (and made the beds again).

i caught lincoln gabbering and flipping through his books all by himself quite a few times. it makes my little heart swell with pride that he seems to like books so far. (sorry, this isn't a 'book picture', but it is a pretty cute 'eating dirt' picture).

we went out on the town and had lunch at quiznos. with a coupon.

i vaccuumed.

i made one of the dinners we learned about at our last relief society activity. i think i liked it more than i expected.

speaking of food, this is day four without chocolate. for anyone who has been around me much, that is quite the feat. its not exactly a goal, more the byproduct of a current goal.

this picture is actually from a week or so ago. since lincoln walks and it would be severe torture to make him go to halloween events with other kids while his legs are stuck inside a fluffy catepillar i made him wear his bug suit on a walk and take some pictures.

tyler put more latches on the cupboards so that no more of this will happen. yeah, he is in the trash.

i finished book 3 of percy jackson. on a side note. i want to mention that i read the autobiography of CS Lewis a couple years ago. he said that a big part of his conversion was his interest in fantasy. and its funny that books like 'percy jackson' and 'the chronicles of narnia' can make me think more about Heavenly Father and maybe even shed some light on eternal principles.

oh! and maybe one of the most fulfilling events; i caouldn't figure out my dang zipper foot for my sewing machine a couple weeks ago. so, i gave up and tried to do a project without it. that surely backfired. so, then tonight i googled it and played with it and i figured it out! oh, glory!

not eating chocolate? am i not the only one to have a goal of not being bigger than Jennette at her baby shower? :) You certainly accomplished a lot today! I loved the pictures, he really looks different to me, and I saw him not that long ago!!! Also, I was meaning to ask you- what does your hubby want for his big day, besides the big book of lawyer jokes? speaking of lawyer jokes, have you read The Mill On The Floss? Along with being one of the best works of literature ever, it makes some wonderful cracks at lawyers. you would like it i bet. it turns out I had a lot to say to you and should have done that in an actual email... :)

I can't believe how big Lincoln is getting. I really wish that I was there so our boys could play together and we could go on walks! I miss you guys, you should really think about staying there next year!
