This past year I decided to keep a book journal. I wrote down each book that I read (I did leave out a few that sucked so bad I couldn't finish. I have a new rule that I don't have to finish all books I start) wrote a little review/thoughts about the book and I gave the book a grade. I started Aug 25 2005. I read 54 books this year. Some months I read lots (spent a week in Mexico) and some hardly at all (this month I read 1 book). It has been a great record of my year. The books reflected what was going on in my life or my mood at the time. I will continue to do this and would encourage "bookies" to do the same!!!

Maybe I should mention that I came home from dinner and threw up and threw up and threw up. Gross.

Weird dinner

It was a babygroup girls night out tonight and I decided that I could use the distraction from my "mom leaving blues". So I went to sushi. I ended up not knowing the other girls very well (I thought a few of my for sure friends would have been there but...) The dinner was a little weird and awkward getting to know each other but then I realized that there were no forks. ANYWHERE!!! Already I was the dork at the table who ordered chicken but I couldn't be a geek and ask for a fork. So I taught myself to eat with chopstick (which I have tried before and SUCKED). I did it. I faked the chopstick usage. I even ate rice!!! Yeah

countdown continues

We are loving having the mom here visiting. Plus I am in a pj'sl and she is getting ready to make dinner. AND it is only 5pm. It is okay to be sick when the mom is around.

the dad; the blogger

My dad wants me to acknowledge his comments that he made about the coyote ugly entry, (with crewe saying whorses not horses). Ah dad, you are so funny! I wish you would get your own blog name so you could get the credit that you so deserve. It is like the time that my mom was coming to visit me. I was checking her arrival time when I received this email from "mom." "sorry I won't be coming today i just can't leave dad, i will miss him too much!" (notice no caps or periods, a sign that is from dad) Any thoughts on what his blog name could be????

Birthday Countdown

Yesterday Crewe recieved a birthday card at church. He was so excitied that there was a cake on the card and candles. He has been saying over and over, "Happy Birthday Crewe!". "Thanks Mommy, Daddy for Happy Birthday to Crewe." It could have been his birthday yesterday, he doesn't know. He just wants cake with "fire" to be at his party. His birthday is on Saturday and I am not sure I can listen to this all week. So we made a birthday paper chain. We all colored the chain and we are going to work on a countdown until the big day. Let the countdown begin.....

This Sunday

So today has been a quite day. We went to church this morning and a boy in my primary class brought me his favorite book to read. "Cyrptid Hunters." It looks like I have to eat my words and read the book that they ALL have been recommending to me for months. Yeah
I also had a really wierd dream last night. Aaron and Natali had another baby. However, the baby was 2 years old by the time he was born. ALSO we was Drew's twin. AND they named him ANDREW. Drew and Andrew. Ah! This baby that I am growing is bringing me the strangest dreams. Go figure.

Baby shower

I had a baby shower at my house the other night. I loved how the table turned out. I used my new Kate Spade pink polk-a-dot dishes that I got for my birthday. I didn't have enough so only every other plate got the pink ones. I also had to use some of Crissie's china to fill the table but I think the whole thing turned out beautiful. I loved putting the table together and using all my fabolous china. yeah

Coyote Ugly

Last night Crewe was having a really hard time sleeping. He has this awful cough/cold. So around 9:30 we woke him up to give him some medicine. It is a total song and dance and he was very awake when we were done. I offered him to come and lay on the couch with me and snuggle (back to sleep).
I was watching "Coyote Ugly" the movie. Crewe just sat next to me and watched. Nothing was said until the girls hopped on the bar to dance. Crewe jumped up and said, "Cowboys!!! Yee-ha!!!". Then I called Rich out of the bedroom to tell him and when he came out Crewe turned to him and said, "They forgot their horses!".

the ginger is back

Ah, ginger cookies are back in my life. I don't like ginger cookies. I am lukewarm on ginger. BUT I am very barfy. ALL THE TIME!!! So ginger cookies are back. When I went to the store this morning (first thing, couldn't handle eating breakfast) I bought a huge box and the cashier said to me, "those are so addicting". What?!* Not addicting, tolrable.

Ah, Mickey

"Oh Mickey, your're so fine you blown my mine. Hey Mickey, Hey Mickey." Okay so I don't think the song is really talking about Mickey Mouse but the sentiment is the same. Crewe can not stop talking about the famous meeting. He also saw Minnie and waved to her and mugged with Pluto. Such a moment for the boy!
