I've been sleeping around...

part of the night in my bed, part of the night in my daughter's bed, part of the night on the rug next to my son's crib. What? You didn't think this was going to be a scandalous post did you?? Oh, how I long for a night of full uninterrupted sleep.

Having said that - it's not 9pm yet and both kiddies are snoozing. Preschool starts back tomorrow for Miss S and we are BOTH thrilled. I should be preparing her lunch right now but I felt it was time for a post.

I finished a good book over the weekend: Night Fall by Nelson DeMille. It is a work of fiction based on the TWA800 crash that took place in '96. It was interesting and got quite exciting the last 3rd of the book. I don't read many books with male authors but I enjoyed this one. I also don't read many investigative/conspiracy books. Anyhow this was good for a change.

Saw a moving movie over the weekend, Gifted Hands: The Ben Carson Story starring Cuba Gooding Jr. It was just one of those inspiring stories about an amazing man who didn't have all the odds in his favor, yet turned out remarkable. Who doesn't love this kind of story? A good kind of feel good movie when you are in the mood.

Well off to follow the college game scores. Oh - and I just remembered I've got a pint of Ben & Jerry's Chubby Hubby in the freezer. Big mistake - but I couldn't resist it today. I can already feel my bum growing!

Ooo, they have such GREAT ice cream! I never had any before 2007 (!) My wife's parents got us some and ever since, I've wanted to try out every flavor!

I've only tried two so far. :P

Ohh, I just added Gifted Hands to my Netflix queue. Can't wait to watch it!
