BORING POST ALERT! Just keeping it real here. I spent last week not doing much housework. I did some laundry and kept the living part of the house tidy, kitchen cleaned up, etc. Today, so far, I am rocking it! Load #3 of laundry is in the washer. Two bathrooms cleaned. My bedroom is 95% better. Joseph's room is all neat. I even changed LIGHT BULBS!! I'm going to keep going and get as much finished as I can.

Also, I started a new weight loss plan and have lost 7.5 pounds already. That's the size of a baby, well, a normal baby, not MY baby, but a baby! WOOHOO!

This is Samuel. Can you guess how old he is today? I think he's excited.

Snowpocalypse 2010! Ok, so not really, but was have over 2 inches of snow in our backyard and that is enough for my kids to be thrilled beyond belief! William went outside and built a snowman as tall as William is! Isaac came outside for a minute, until I realized he was BARE FOOT! and sent him right back inside.

Chili for dinner, pot of coffee for the adults in the house. Movies, fires, HOORAY!

Books! I am now a few chapters into Leviticus. Genesis was so much fun! Exodus started off with some drama, but boy, the specifics of building the tabernacle were, well, specific! Leviticus, what can I say? There were a LOT of dead animals in the Bible.

Pirate Latitudes by Michael Crichton. Good. Not Michael's usual thousand pages of super in depth writing, but enjoyable.

Lost Symbol by Dan Brown. My baby sister told me to read it. She assured it me it had NOTHING to do with the Bible code of his other books. She was almost completely right and she apologized for the wrong part.

Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Steig Larsson. Wow. Amazing. Deep. Sweet. Well written. I have the second book in my iPhone for the next time I get 3 minutes to read!

Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold. Wow. I cried at the end. Twice. I don't cry about books much. A difficult read because of the content, but truly a wonderful book. I also got Lucky to read later.

Any other suggestions?
