No Way is it Friday again! 7 Quick takes

1. Well the TV is officially dead. They don't feel like coming to fix it, so they are sending a replacement check. Some of you suggested that we not be in a hurry to replace it.

But I like being married!

No seriously, TV is how Hubby decompresses from work. If he felt led to give up TV in some form, I would be ok with it. But I can't push of it myself.

2. We had Tae Kwon Do belt ceremony last night, Junior is now a yellow belt. He did really well, and this time he didn't have the wiggles as bad. Last time he was doing pretty well until his dad got a Big Red and shared it with Junior. At least a sugar bowl with a spoon wouldn't have carried a risk of staining, and still have less sugar than Big Red. sigh

3. The Ultimate Blog Party is ending today, and it has been amazing. Wow.
I have found some new bloggy friends through it, which is cool.

4. Years of public school taught me that all my friends are going to be the same age as I am.

So sometimes it comes as a shock that someone who's blog I am enjoying is not my age. Some are quite a bit younger than me - one mentioned wanting to build a web page in High School - then others have kids my age. But in my mind, almost everybody is between 32 to 38.

I can do this. I can do this. I can do this. (think Littlest Engine That Could, except the reason for this is that I am not the littlest).
There is a new challange over at 2nd Cup of Coffee to move for 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week, for 2 weeks.

That's all. Just committing to 2 weeks.

Yesterday, I went and did my walk/jog with Daisy for 20 minutes. Then later I went by myself for 10 minutes to burn off some steam. I calculated it up and I walked/jogged 2 miles!

Today I biked for a little over a mile (to figure out distances) and then walked my mile. which ended up being 30 minutes again.

6. Daisy is working on learning crochet. She is making a washcloth because . . . they are small and very forgiving. It doesn't matter too much if it looks like a blind drunk made it. She is doing pretty well on it. It doesn't look bad, but it clearly isn't made by an experienced crocheter.

7. Yesterday Daisy asked if I was the tooth fairy. She said that it would "explain alot."

I am still not quite sure what she meant by that.


  1. I'm absolutely dying over Daisy's question... too funny! You should ask her what she meant by that!!

  2. You should get a pedometer, it motivates me to see how many steps/miles I run. I just use a Chicken Little one that I got out of a cereal box, but I don't think they are too expensive.

  3. #4 is so funny...I'm the same way and I'm always SO surprised when I find out someone isn't my age! Especially now that I'm, ahem, getting older....

  4. Your tooth fairy conversation sounds familiar. :-)
    We are nearly 700 miles from Mt. Redoubt as the crow flies. We are "watching" on the internet...probably with as much info as you!

  5. Daisy's comment was very thought provoking. :-) I'm doing the 30x5 thingy, too. Jogging againg after taking the winter off. Oh my aching knees!
    Keep it up, you are doing great.

  6. I am doing 30x5 too, sounds like your off to a great start. My son has begun to ask all those lovely questions that your not quite sure how to answer..

  7. Two miles! That's great. Keep the posts and updates coming.

  8. If getting a new TV will save your marriage, GET A NEW TV. :) Personally, I could live without the TV, but if my husband tried to cut me off from the Internet, he'd have to pry the computer from my death grip first. ;)
