Rachel's List

I'm stealing this idea from my gorgeous, brilliant, hilarious friend Rachel.  I'm hoping the compliments will soften the plagiarism blow.  
 
Reading: Middlemarch by George Eliot 

Listening: A mellifluous mix of Arcade Fire, Ray LaMontagne, Cat Power and Priscilla Ahn

Watching: Modern Family, HGTV,  Lost and 24 (and Full House...not going to lie)

Cooking: I made venison tacos the other night.  
 
Eating: Honey Nut Cheerios (the only sweet I'm allowing myself right now)
Wishing: It were summer.  Eli and I have some serious cabin fever.

Thinking: I need a haircut. Stat.  Also, trying to come up with creative in-door activities to do with a one-year old.  Suggestions?

Craving: Hostess cupcakes...sweet, wonderful Hostess cupcakes. 

Excited About: flying to California to visit family and attend grandpa's wedding. 

Laughing At: Eli's dancing.  OH.EM.GEE.  He dances to everything right now.  He gets this huge grin on his face and starts bopping up and down.  Rhythm is gonna get ya. 

Annoyed With: Complacency.  And belly fat.

Feeling Bad: That I had a frozen pizza for dinner and not the sensible turkey sandwich I was planning to make.  Working until 7:30 makes it hard to be sensible for dinner.

Missing: my grandma.  Eli pulled one of my treasured Ramona Quimby books from my bookcase, and I opened it up to see my grandmother's handwriting, "Jeanette, I thought you would like this. Love, Grandma.  Christmas 1988" 

Loving: the movie Whip It.  If I didn't cry when I stubbed my toe, I'm pretty sure I'd be rad at roller derby.

Planning: to make brownies for my 'ladies with babies' group tomorrow.

Have you started coloring yet? Or the paint with water books? Playdough? Filling the sink with water and letting him play with measuring cups in it (it's messy, but easy to clean up). DOesn't the university have staff and faculty swim nights . . . I would hit every single one of those if I were you. Swimming before bed = really easy bedtime and long night of sleep. Treehouse? OK . . . I only made it to the part where you were tryign to entertain a one-year-old. I'm going back now to read the rest of your post!

your plagiarism is forgiven, only because you still own ramona quimby (age 8) books. please tell me you own superfudge.

Have you exhausted the possibilities of Cheerios?

I almost started crying.

And Eli's dancing is hilarious.
