- I've been reading. READING! This summer I set a goal of 5 books by the end of the year. 5 books that were not requirements for grad class. I'm so happy to have completed 4/5 for my goal! I have read:
The Beach Trees (ooh a little mystery)
The Help (by far my favorite)
Best Friends Forever (ehh... kind of a slow read)
I also had started (and got partway through) Safe Haven by Nicholas Sparks but found it pretty boring and predictable. Ehh. I skimmed the ending and shelfed it.
and right now I'm just starting I Don't Know How She Does It. I want to to see the movie so I ordered the book from Amazon and just started it the other day. It SO reminds me of my life... chaotic working-mom life. AHHHH! Except, she's attempting to make the store bought pies appear homemade? I'd be the nut in the kitchen 'till 4am baking friggin' pies. I cant' wait to get further into the book and to see the movie!
- I dropped my Master's Class the day it started. I knew that with the exhaustion of being pregnant in my first trimester I wouldn't be able to get anything done. Not to mention September and October are CRAZY busy photograpy months and I already had a bazillion sessions scheduled. So, I've re-registered for another class that starts the end of January. That will get me my 9 credits to get an extension.
- We have started puppy training with Cooper at home (and a little refresher/solidifier for Duncan). He's doing great at recognizing his name and the first little "session" he learned to sit. The niblets of cheese had a lot to do with it, but he's a smart little guy. He's starting to walk on his leash a little better rather than treat it like a venomous snake attached to his neck.
- The other night I was putting the boys to bed and thought "Oh my word... these kids act just like a couple drunk frat boys. Hudson had to go pee and I walked back by the bathroom and saw him distracted, with a necklace of mine that was on the sink and he was trying to fit it over his head. I thought to myself OMG i could totally see a drunk person doing that.... "I have to go pee.... OOOH pretty necklace! I'll try to put it on. Ooooh its not fitting on my head. Errrr if I just tilt my head this way...." HAHAHaH There are so many spontaneous and wacky things my kids do that I can't do anything but shake my head at. Little boys are like little drunk frat boys.
