Also, for the record, I wanted to say that Joci's interactions with the Ziploc bags were not a fluke. She's done it again. And again. And again. Now, every time she comes into the kitchen, she has to open that one cupboard, remove all the boxes of baggies and hand them to me. Usually while I am cooking and my hands are covered in raw chicken goop. And then she leaves and does something else. I got what I asked for. And she's pushing it. :)
I haven't gone to bed once before midnight this week. Stupid.
I forgot to set my alarm last night and woke up late this morning. Also, the cat puked all throughout my hallway. Very dark and pigmented puke. And I ran out of carpet cleaner. I was about two hours late to work.
I am training for a 5k. I ran a mile this week. I don't think I've ever done that. I got expert tips from my runner friend and they totally worked. I am proud of what I have done so far.
I bought a loaf of banana bread at the monthly daycare treat fundraiser. I've had new neighbors for several weeks. I am going to greet them with this homemade loaf of banana bread. They'll probably assume I made it. Which is exactly what I am going for.
I began my low-carb diet this week. My body responds really well to that. I've kinda gotten sloppy with eating and such this year. And my hips are proof. I've already lost 3 pounds.
We are more than halfway to our Total Money Makeover Baby Step 1 goal. I have hung up a savings thermometer on our door so we can see how close we are to our goal every time we leave the house. We're definitely going to make our goal.
Tonight as Justin and I were sitting in the living room chatting after Joci was asleep, my darling cat Gabby jumped in through the open window (a normal occurrence) but when she sauntered down the hallway, I screamed as I saw the present she left behind at our feet - a freshly killed mouse! She's good at pest control. Our front stoop is littered with half-eaten grasshoppers. And the head and top torso of a mouse. Sorry to my home teachers who walked past it the other day. I've heard it means your pet loves you if they bring you their trophies. I love you too, Gabby, but leave the mice outside.
I *loved* the episode of Community tonight. Sheer hilarity.
