I'm too lazy ...

To come up with anything creative today. I actually started a post yesterday, but never submitted it as I was distracted or something like that.

It's a nice day, we went out to lunch, then Target (always fun!) and then hubby went for a haircut and dropped me and the child off at Barnes and Noble. My total mecca, of course. I actually made it out of there without getting an iced chai latte. Amazing, I know. I think I had enough with a 1/2 vanilla bean cupcake that we got for free and the kiddo and I split because I bought two Dora DVDs. Yeah, I'm a sucker for a free treat. ;) Kidding. I bought 'em and will hide them away for future gift purposes. I'm trying to do that - since last year I got a ton of holiday books at 50% off and since we do Chanukah AND Christmas, well, I'd better stock up, right?

Anyway, I thought I'd skip posting today and just toss up some links to other more interesting people, but looks like I did get a post out after all!

Oh, and what I didn't post yesterday, in the midst of a cranky mommy and happy kid, was that I had plans to go out last night with my local mommy peeps, and I was not sure I was in the mood to go out, not sure if it'd stay a clear night (we were seeing a movie outside) and totally not in the mood for bugs. But you know what? I pulled an anti-bug bracelet around my ankle, bought some water and popcorn when I got there and brought a chair and a blanket, and I sat back and enjoyed a movie from start to finish. Ready for what movie it was? You're gonna be jealous, I know it.


Best movie of the '80s, no? I can't recall the last time I watched the entire thing, and it was so different watching it now, as an "adult," ya know? Anyway, it was a lot of fun. 


  1. Sounds like a fun girls night out! The Hubs and I used to do Barnes and Nobel dates in our pre-kid life. I miss those big cozy chairs, a hot cocoa and a good gardening book.

    School just started up around here and we'll be doing the "Mom Freedom Fest" on Monday. Lunch with ONLY Moms who have all kids in school. No toddlers or babies or kids of any sort allowed! Woot!

  2. The Breakfast Club is such a classic.
    I love B+N but I can spend waaaay too much $ in there. I just discovered where you can swap books/movies/music w/ people by just paying s+h. Something new for me to obsess over ;-)
