good stuff...

...I may just have The. Sweetest. Mom. on the planet. She called a little while ago, and asked me if tomorrow or Friday would be better for her and Dad to come up so she could polish the hardwood floors in the bedrooms. I tried to argue with her, but well, it's no secret in this family that it's from her that I inherited my stubborn streak. "Mom, there's no way I'm going to ask my 70-year-old mother to drive three hours up here to polish my floors!" Her reply, "You're not asking. And I don't want to think about how hard it would be on you to do them yourself. Look, your pain is not your fault." At which point, I fought back the tears and asked her what they'd like to eat while they were here.

...Decided to go ahead and get a bit of a head-start on the quarterly reports today. The kiddos still have things to finish up tomorrow for this first quarter so I couldn't actually complete them, but I made a pretty darn good dent in them. And that makes me a happy girl!

...Three boys on a bag.

...It's Criminal Minds night. And I shall squeeze in some crocheting while I watch. Good x 2.

...I *finally* finished a book this month. Jericho Season 3 Civil War. Yep, enjoyed it. Though I couldn't recommend it to anyone who wasn't really familiar with the TV series. And being an enormous fan wouldn't hurt either. :)

...While I still don't have all the "data," I think I'm about to post about my newest whopper of a project. I simply can't hold it in any longer. :P I don't imagine anyone else will be terribly excited about it, but that's okay--I'm excited enough for the whole world! :D

...Ana has started watching Avatar: The Last Airbender. Of course, I will be heartbroken if she doesn't end up loving it like I do. (Just kidding, Ana. Mostly anyway. :P )

...We have an install date for our new carpeting, which is the last big hurdle before putting the house on the market. And it totally doesn't hurt that it's only costing us about half what we thought it was going to!

...Am starting to feel a bit excited about Christmas--was so worried that I just wasn't going to this year, and well that simply would have sucked.

...Just so stinkin' cute. (Not the best photo, but I had to take it through the window.)

Awww: this post made my heart happy! :) (Also, I would argue I have the Sweetest Mom on the Planet, but yours sounds pretty awesome too! Perhaps there's more than one!)

LITTLE BIRDS! Something about a little bird perks up my Emily Dickinson tastes. It's like an angel you can tuck into your pocket.
