  1. Little Miss has decided she wants to be a mom when she grows up.  The other day, she amended this to say she wants to be a mom construction worker.  She goes back to wanting to be a construction worker a lot actually.
  2. My office moved last month.  I'm still not quite used to the new routine.  
  3. I did not read one book in December.  That felt weird.  I haven't gone a month without reading a book in at least the last 5 years.
  4. I just bought Little Miss an autographed Tomie dePaola book.  It's a favorite that we just picked up from the library.  She has a nice little collection of autographed books.  I prize the books where we actually got to meet the authors, but it's nice to have a little something especially while we live in a time where so many great classic children's book authors are still with us.  I'm just sad I didn't stalk Dr. Seuss while I still lived in Massachusetts.  In my defense, I was a child.
  5. I'm trying to see how long I can go without cleaning the house.  It's ridiculously scary, but I have absolutely no ambition to do so even though it's kind of driving me insane.  
  6. I want to get out of doing something tomorrow, and I'm totally using Little Miss as an excuse.  I hardly ever do this, but I think she'd understand.
  7. I've been watching Little Miss with her friends.  It's an odd dynamic.  She'll be a good friend if her back is to the wall, but she doesn't go after friends.  She likes them to come to her.
  8. A little boy gave Little Miss a ring at school yesterday.  She wanted to sleep with it.
  9. Little Miss got a Hello Kitty board game similar to Trouble.  If it disappears in the night, I have no idea what happened to it.  
  10. After having the flu and no appetite for 10 days, I now want to eat everything in sight.  I'm not (yet), but I want to.
