Tuesday thoughts.

I have a chiropractor appointment today. Hooray! Maybe I can get rid of this pain in my back finally...

I am collecting any new scrapbook items you may have purchased, but aren't going to use. Putting together a basket for http://joetesplayground.com/ in time for a Mother's Day fundraiser. Any suggestions on what should be included?

Seems like "location" is the reason everyone moves to my area. Problem is, it seems to be the same reason everyone moves out, as well. Sigh. I wish we had a plan, too, and could take advantage of prices while they're low.

J has PLENTY of tracks and buildings and hills and bridges for his Geotrax, but all of his engines are dying. The Easter bunny needs to bring him a couple of new ones, I think.

J is getting the raw end of the deal with this fitness challenge I've undertaken. Mornings are spent exercising, his afternoons are spent napping, and he rarely gets to do anything fun with Mommy anymore because I'm exhausted all the time. Just 6 more weeks...

My girls would love to be in the school's talent show this year, but I've no idea what they should do, if anything. Any ideas for a "Fun in the Sun" themed performance that doesn't take a terrible amount of MY time preparing?

I am concerned what M's anger will evolve into when she's a teenager.

How do you feel about playdates? There are a couple of kids in my neighborhood that are already waiting for us, many times, when we get home from school in the afternoons. It seriously BUGS me. I want my house to feel comfortable for my kids' friends, don't get me wrong, but they don't seem to have the patience to wait until "after homework" or "after dinner" as they're constantly reminded to do. Instead, they're hopping my fence and peering in my sliding glass door while I'm trying to make dinner. GRRRRRRR! DANG our low-view fence! I want to put in barbed wire! It's often after 9pm before A FINALLY gets her homework done, because she's so distracted by friends that keep coming over when she SHOULD be doing it. What would you do?

Anybody have 500 bucks they're not using, so I can get my carpets cleaned? Thanks.

I tend to waste time on Facebook instead of cleaning my craft room like I should...

let's cut a 2-for-1 deal on carpet cleaning!

finish your curtains and close them. keeps peeping eyes away during homework time! and if my kid is one of the distractions, tell his mother!

I have a pair of scallop scissors that are still in the packaging. I already have a pair. I might have some other stuff too. I am packing all that up this afternoon. I will let you know:)

Talent show idea for the girls: lip synch and lyrical dance of Will Smith's "Summertime." I'd pay to see that.

I have a carpet cleaner that you are welcome to borrow.
