Mini Post Monday

  • This week's edition is going to focus on the mini side of things.  Cause I'm tired and I had a week that was too busy to even jot down tiny details.
  • Andrew turns one this week.  I think I'm going to cry.
  • I have been two weeks without the TV and you know, I don't miss it that much.  I have missed it a couple times, though.  One was an afternoon when I'd had a particularly miserable morning.  I wanted nothing more than to lay on the couch and lose myself in a meaningless show when the kids went down for nap.   The other was two evenings that Jerry and I were both tired and we just wanted to relax with a show while Andrew nursed then go for an early bedtime ourselves.  I don't think I'll keep a "no TV" stance past my original deadline, but I'll certainly watch much, much less.
  • Jerry is just two papers away from finishing his master's degree.  Can we get a collective WOO-HOO here?
  • We survived another round of LDA (allergy treatment).  I quit fighting the kids about eating the nasty food during our three day shot-time diet.  I have just accepted that Ethan doesn't eat for the second two of those three days.  He won't die, but he did lose a bit of weight...I have a full post about this somewhere.
  • I am making these and these for Christmas this year for my friends.  Don't those look yummy?

DOH! I can't believe I forgot to comment here yesterday. It's your fault though (since I am, you know, never wrong) because you put those links in there and I went to the one for hot chocolate pods and them Mom and I were contemplating all the cool things we could do with this. So then I was distracted and then I got busy so then I forgot...that's my story. And I'm sticking to it.

I can't believe Jerry is almost finished with his masters already. It seems like just yesterday that you guys were starting this whole venture. Where is the time going?

I want to say something about Andrew turning one, but everything is too sappy and I just can't do it. Why does time go by so quickly?

My fault, eh? Glad to know I have such control over you from across the miles! :) Aren't those pods cool? I am doing regular, mint, and raspberry. I am trying to think of a good way to do a coffee one, too, but haven't thought of it yet.

I can't believe Andrew is a year old already! He is too cute in those glasses :)

I saw something like those chocolate pods in a magazine and thought they were such a neat idea. They were on sticks though so you could swish it around in your mug.

Sounds like several milestones for your family :)

I watch very little tv, and when we have to cancel the cable, I don't even miss it. However, if I have to go without internet, it makes me CRAZY.

I feel for you with the allergy stuff ((hugs))
