Anyways, here's mine:
My husband is playing the latest video game with friends in Texas and Hawaii right now. Using Ventrillo helps them to stay connected and enjoy their gaming together. We only pay $4 a month for a "space" large enough for 10 - so we can talk to all of our friends online while we play. Saves a ton on phone bills, plus makes gaming more fun. Since we're military, friends move all over the world, but this way we can still keep in touch :)
Just finished watching The Next Food Network Star and am loving Justin even more. It could be because he's on Alton's team and there's just something about Alton that gets to me :) The big joke in my house is that Alton Brown is my "boyfriend". Regardless, I think I could actually watch a whole show of Justin cooking and talking so I'm crossing my fingers for him!
It's my birthday tomorrow (well in 23 minutes!). I try to remain unaware of exactly how old I'm turning - I wouldn't lie about it, I just try not to think of it :) I'm not really big on presents, I'm just thrilled my husband actually seems to be on top of it this year - he's mentioned it several times. Which contrasts with the year when he forgot entirely and only remembered when we went to a friend's house for dinner and she put candles on the cake for me. He was totally confused ~ "What's with the candles?" he said. It's been 5 years and he still hasn't lived that one down lol!
I am wanting a new computer since my laptop keeps turning itself off. I need to take it in to be checked but I'm afraid of what they might say. It is old and slow and I really want a desktop again ~ however I would be satisfied if they could just figure out how to keep it on while I'm working!
Do you know how many cups 4 children use in one day? It's approximately 189,532. I know, because I've been washing dishes by hand (gasp!) for 2 weeks since my dishwasher broke. Somehow I keep forgetting to make the call to the serviceman until after 5pm! Tomorrow my one goal is to get that phone call made!
My all time favorite read aloud, as I've shared before is Mo Willem's "Don't Let The Pigeon Drive the Bus!" I read it (and the other Pigeon books) every year and we adapt it into different class books. It is so fun to hear the kids interact with the book and then they really get into the illustrations too!
