1. Is it Tuesday? I was pretty good on what day it was right up to our trip to Washington. Ever since I've been living in the land of calendar oblivion. I love it!
2. Listening to the girls ride their bikes up and down the driveway.... I wonder if my parents wore the same smiles as my sister & I cruised up that same gravel path?
3. I found a hide-a-bed in the People's Press' bargain section, which got me thinking.... do they still make hide-a-beds?
4. Abby never stops singing. Well, almost never. Maybe that's why she doesn't like brushing her teeth, it stifles her inner songstress. Perhaps it can also explain the talking in her sleep.
5. Hey, I just met you. And this is crazy. But here's my number. So call me maybe. That would be Abby's, and now Lauren's favorite never-ending song. And now you can have it stuck in your head, too. You're welcome.
6. I am finally on the third installment of the Fifty Shades trilogy. I didn't expect to be saying this, but I've enjoyed it most when it got past the dirty. And the second book was better, hands down. I can't wait to see where the third book leads!
7. What do people in Owatonna do for fun on a random Monday night in July? Attend Dancing with the Steele County Stars, of course. It was quite the evening of entertainment, and best of all I finally got to check out Medford's new school; I was impressed!
8. I've been on the lookout for cute and simple sewing projects to get myself acquainted with my new sewing machine. Enter the Ric Rac Flower. UCreate is loaded with adorable tutorials. love. Love. LOVE.
9. At six & seven, the girls still love to play cars. What once was downtime spent lining up their four-wheeled toys is now an elaborate society constructed out of their imaginations. I could listen to them play for hours.
10. My heart weighs heavy with equal parts disappointment and wonder. It's hard not to be saddened when you find out people aren't who you thought they are. And yet I wonder if the nature of growing up will reflect kindly on them. It certainly gives me a lot to think about when shaping the path my children follow. a lot. A Lot.

- I'm a teacher by trade, writer at heart & mom in every sense of my being. I never considered writing as a profession, but after I got married and began moving around the country, I began sharing my adventures, misadventures & updates through a sort of e-mail newsletter. I found a true passion in unconventional story-telling that has followed me into motherhood.
