Happy Potluckday everyone. So glad you came to partake in the potluck festivities.
Speaking of festivities...
Tomorrow I am running a 24 hour contest for something really fun.
24 hours ONLY.
It will start at 12:01 tonight - run through the entire 24 hours of January 13, 2009.
So, please stop by tomorrow!
Someone arrived Nirvanaside this week by Googling, "3 year old pain in the butt". I am not sure whether they meant coccyx or children, but I think I qualify on both accounts.
Speaking of it...
What is Up with Holly's Coccyx?
A triumphal return to 5:30 yoga (yes, that is am).
Maybe not quite triumphal...
more like a yawning, sore and grumpy return.
Let's find out who is Peep of the Week!
In response to Holly's Animated Life adventure, "It is jeanetic":
"Oh my gosh, I'm going to totally try the men's next time...will I need to bring a sock? or do they provide that...like a nylon at the shoe store?" --Danielle
"Be warned. Putting your hands in the front pockets, makes your crotch itch. I've seen it happen many many times." --Jill
For making me both laugh and re-think the men's jean thing, Danielle and Jill are Peeps of the Week!
And now for a little story...
I spent all day Sunday (NOT an exaggeration) cleaning out a toy closet. It hasn't been touched since Christmas other then to open the door and do the coordinated shove & close.
I am baffled by the way that toys can un-sort themselves into the biggest possible mess. It is a reverse big bang theory.
I pull out a plastic bin that is supposed to contain hot wheels and this is how it goes:
lego, tinker toy, Mr. Potatohead's feet, a sticker sheet, lego, 4 magnets stuck together from 2 different magnet sets, 2 puzzle pieces (not from the same puzzle), lego, random bulldozer, transformer missing an arm and head, lego, Lincoln log cowboy figurine, Geo Trax bale of hay, lego, walkie-talkie, beanie baby-snake, lego snake, rubber snake, lego, Happy Meal toy, lego....All that sorting in the Hot Wheel container and not a Hot Wheel in sight.
Legos have made a full Nirvana infiltration. They are small, but rapidly multiply. They are the rabbits of toys.
I was working on sorting containers of just legos when I noticed this:
Did someone give my children the Lego Ku Klux Klan set for Christmas and I just didn't notice?
I turned him over fully expecting that what I saw on the other side would clear up that thought:
But really, what is this?
What is in Holly's fruit bowl?
1 lime, 2 lemons, 3 brown bananas and a 1/2 of an open packet of K2O Protein Water in Pink Lemonade.
May your toys be free of prejudice today...
P.S. Don't forget to visit tomorrow!
