Good. Great. Wonderful

Recently, during family night, we sat down to watch What About Bob? Funny movie. Every morning Bob says, "I feel good. I feel great. I feel wonderful" over and over to himself. What a great way to start the day! I am already a morning person, and this would be a great addition to my morning routine. Ok, ok, so I don't really have a routine per se, but it sounds really good when you say it together. Try it. Morning routine. See, don't you feel better? Anyway, something weird and miraculous has been happening in the world of me lately. I have been managing to get my bed made every day. And...I have been having this weird urge to get all my dishes washed and sinks cleared before I leave the house. Pretty cool. I like it.

Recent highlights:
Talon is now 3 and is a repeater. Catch him at the right time and he will say everything you say. At least if you are Eliana. So, watch what you say :). Wiggles, cars, trucks, Spiderman, Transformers, some of his current favorites

Eliana is 6 and can't decide whether she is not growing up fast enough or is growing up too fast. She mourns the fact that her teeth are just barely wiggly, and is not encouraged by the fact that she might be able to sing, All I Want for Christmas is My Two Front Teeth, by December. Energetic and extremely athletic, this strong beautiful child will either lovingly pick you up or climb your walls (literally)

Natasha is 8 and wow, she is a reader. No, wait, she is a book devourer. Give her a book that she likes, and you'll have a friend for life....or you could just invite her to play Scrabble :)

We recently started family movie night up again, and I love it. What About Bob? was a diversion. We are currently working our way through all the Star Wars movies (nevermind that we've only seen the first one...here is where I will not go on a diversion and discuss whether we watched the first chronologically made Star Wars or otherwise). :) Your only clue is that all the girls want to dress up like Princess Leia, including me, hahahaha

Oh, wait, I have more good news. The guy who mowed my lawn last week didn't mow over all my hibiscus plants or black eyed susans. Triple Yay!!!! Daylilies are blooming. One yucca bloomed early, the other one is indecisive. My hostas are getting ready to bloom, too. Did I say, Yay! Yay!!!! Well, gotta get this show on the road.

I feel good.
I feel great.
I feel wonderful.

I feel good.
I feel great.
I feel wonderful.

you try it :)

I love your new layout. You must tell me how you did it.

This morning, as I slowly got out of bed, I tried saying I feel good??? I feel great??? I feel wonderful??? Didn't work. All I really could say was, it hurts to move. Maybe if I didn't get out of bed this morning, I will feel good, great, then wonderful. Alas, I had to get up and go to work. After four hours at work, all I could think of was getting into the pool to escape the oppressive heat and humidity. It worked until we got out of the pool.

Anyway, loved the descriptions of the kids. Right on!!!
