*Now that the kids have started school, I'm sad because that means that the summer is winding down. When school starts, the laziness of summer that I enjoy turns into sports, homework, birthday parties, school events, and hours volunteering. I was really sad that my kids went back to school because I missed having them around during the day. That said, here's my confession: I so love having time to myself during the day! I feel a little guilty saying that, but it's the honest truth. And I haven't missed the arguments over whose toy someone is playing with, or who is getting the last of the Doritos (baked, of course...see below).
*I am a Food Nazi. There, I said it. Now the people who think this about me can rest assured that I do know this about myself. I understand that there are things about myself that could be improved...Somehow, I feel that I am doing those around me a huge favor (even if they didn't ask) by reminding them (sometimes it's just a disapproving look) how unhealthy certain foods are.

I admit, the thought crossed my mind that maybe I had purchased an apple that already had a bite taken out of it because I had absolutely zero recollection of taking any bite out of that apple. Here's the true confession: I still don't remember taking the bite. Scary.
*Last but not least...I am still scared of the dark. I went down the basement (have you ever noticed that normal basements get really creepy at night?) to make sure the door was closed the other night. Everyone else was asleep, the house was dark and silent, and faster than you can say creepy I high-tailed up the steps two at a time like you have never seen...and then locked the door, just in case the creepy-ness leaked out.
What's your week been like?
