:: my choice of the boys’ christmas present. we get them a play kitchen. this was in part a ploy to get them out of our kitchen drawers and cabinets. they proceed to spend more time raiding our kitchen drawers and making off with various trivets, spatulas, and pot holders.
:: my honesty. around christmas day i got all excited about trying to accomplish reading 52 books in 52 weeks. so i started on my list and began jane eyre. i finished on new year’s eve. my conscience wouldn’t bother me if i finished it on january 1st but i guess it is a bit dishonest to add it to the 2010 list. perhaps i should start my 52 weeks with the last week of the year?? perhaps i shouldn’t obsess so much about these things?? and if you haven’t read jane eyre you’re missing out.
:: evidently, my sanity. after three and half years with the same phone, i finally caved to getting a new one. when i told the saleslady that i wanted a basic phone because i’m a no-frills phone kind of girl she eyed me suspiciously. when it came out that i don’t even text, she was incredulous. “seriously?!” she asked. seriously. such people do exist.
:: men who push around dog strollers. head to boca raton if you’d like to see how rich old people spend their time. each time i go i am shocked by the number of dog strollers i see. i was even more shocked today when i saw a women parading around while holding her pooch. behind her the gray-haired husband dutifully pushed along the pink dog stroller carrying his beloved’s purse. soon after i promised omar that i would never make him do such things.
