3 unrelated thoughts of today...
(I promise only 3. I won't drag this out to like 10)
1. I have awesome friends.
My bridesmaids (3.5 years ago): 2 sisters. 1 sister-in-law. 4 friends.
These 4 friends came into my life between elementary school and my first professional job.
2 of them live in the Philadelphia area and I get to see fairly often.
1 lives in California and I see her maybe twice a year (if lucky)
And 1 moved to Africa to serve in missions; I see her once every 2 years at best.
But no matter how far we are apart, we can pick up right where we left of.
I was reminded of that during a conversation text tonight.
And just wanted to say that it made me smile. :)
2. I need new book suggestions. Badly.
I promised myself I'd be in bed before 9pm tonight,
because after our party-party weekend (slash hangover), I need to catch up on sleep.
But I have no books to read.
Studies show (and I can personally vouch for this) that electronics like laptops and iPads prevent the user from sleeping because of the glow stimulation
(or something like that; you can always count on me to butcher a study's findings).
So I get books from the library.
(Yes, they still exist - Libraries!)
But now I'm completely out of book suggestions.
I like easy reads.
Some of my favs this year:
- Divergent series (I know, late to the game like always)
- Is Everyone Hanging out Without Me? (by Mindy Kalig - I adore her and yet have never watched a single episode of her show)
- Fault in Our Stars
- Jurassic Park: The Lost World
(Apparently I like books made into movies.)
Any and all suggestions welcome.
3. I glued Elmo's Squirter shut.
No, this is not an X-rated post.
We have this Elmo bath toy set,
which comes with 5 pieces but Aaron only plays with the 3 below religiously.
Like seriously, carries them around the house post-bath.
(I really need to do another Toddler Oddities post, and add this.)
Elmo squirts water which I HATE because... MOLD.
But I can't throw Elmo away because it would break Aaron's heart.
Whenever we go upstairs for bath,
Aaron asks sweetly: "Elmo? Elmo?"
For the record, he's never seen Elmo on TV.
He just knows that Elmo goes with "Bah" (bath).
So tonight I busted out the super glue.
And now Elmo will NEVER SQUIRT AGAIN.
:: triumphant laughter ::
Also... I used the word "squirt" 3 times,
which is definite record because I regard the word "squirt" like Lily regards "moist."
