I got tagged and I actually played along.

I got tagged by Krista.

1. If you could have the last hour prior to reading this tag again, what would you do differently? I would have made some progress on a little project that is due very soon, like defcon5

2. You can go back in time for exactly one hour, where and at what time in history would you go?
I would split it into two half hours and go back to the half hours right after each one of my daughter's was born. A newborn is a profound thing.

3. You have one hour to make a handmade item, what would you make? I would make a book.

4. If you could lose one bad habit, what would it be?
I would like to stop leaving nearly full cups of coffee all over the house. I get distracted and it gets cold.

5. In less than sixty words, describe your perfect Saturday night.
Cooking my husband's favorite dinner, getting the kitchen cleaned up early, making some art, watching a good movie, like Notting Hill.

6. List sixty things you could do with that extra hour. I could write 60 more words of my book. I don't have extra hours until after The Deadline.

Go Blue!

My Colts are on Monday Night Football. Most of the so-called experts are picking Jacksonville tonight and EVERYBODY is STILL beating the Tom Brady drum for the Superbowl. Grrr. And the Red Sox - somehow- are going the World Series. I was rooting for Cleveland. That's where I met Keith LoBue. What do I have against the Red Sox? They are guilty by association. They share a city with my behated patriots. That's not a typo. They don't deserve a capital P. That's for PEYTON only.

Progress on The Book - The writing is coming along. I am SO glad I have taken notes as I have made stuff. I can't imagine trying to remember how I did stuff.

Whitley has basketball practice at 6:00 am tomorrow. We will be leaving the house at 5:30. She is only worried about getting herself ready for school and looking just so-so. She is a picky one about those things. Courtney's soccer tournament starts tomorrow night at 6:00. One of the big boys on her team has a spell bowl competition tomorrow night and probably won't be there. Makes me a little nervous, but it's a double elim and they play a team they have beaten soundly twice. We shall see. It's supposed to be raining, so it will be a mudfest. Fun. Court loves wallowing around in the mud.

The pic above was taken Saturday at the soccer field.

Deliver Me from the Super Center Parking Lot

Yes, I shop at Walmart. Why? BECAUSE WE HAVE NO TARGET and it's some kind of requirement for self-respecting Hoosier women. I contend, however, that you are safer crossing the street in the middle of the block in Times Square that you are walking across the parking lot at the super center. You could disappear under the wheels of a giant dually pickup and never be seen again. It seems as though some of my friends and neighbors are unable to see the big white diagonal lines that mark the CROSSWALK. I know it's difficult when you're on the phone and drinkin a mocha-latte-whoopa-chino (thanks for bringing $5 coffees to us country folk, Starbucks), but please, people are gonna get hurt. Pay attention!

thump - thump

That was me stepping down offa my soapbox. I went to the Big W today for groceries. We had a half day of school today and no school Thurs and Fri for fall break. The trees are beginning to blush a little, but it's been warm again this week. Sposed to have storms all day tomorrow.
It looks like I have made all the artwork for my half of the book and now - literally now - I am working on the writing.
Whit finished her soccer season with 11 goals - the team high. The next gal had 6. Court finished 4th in the county-wide meet, despite an injury. Court made the 8th grade basketball team and Whit has tryouts next week. She will either be on the freshman team or JV. The thing about basketball in Indiana is that EVERYBODY is an expert. It's not like soccer, where I still have to explain off sides to somebody three time a match.
