Link up, link back, say hello!
1. I'm not really a fan of Nicki Minaj, at all, but my kid is in love with the song "Hey Mama." We were at a store and he started busting a move, as he normally does, but then he heard it again and added some hand motions and tried to sing. So, I downloaded it and feel a little dirty about the whole thing.
2. I've determined that the most important question I ask myself every day as a temporary stay-at-home mom is "have you had enough caffeine, Christine?"
3. July is the month where I get it together; June was a month for decompressing and August will be about
crying being in denial. One thing high on my list if doing letters of rec for my seniors, since it will help me out a ton come fall when they're all applying for ten million colleges and scholarships.
4. I currently have pretty much perfect dental hygiene (pats self on back) but when I went in today for a routine check up they found cavities under two of my crowns that have to be completely redone. Alas, the dentist said I've always had problems and always will due to genetics. So I can keep on brushing 2-3 times day, flossing nightly, and using fancy mouth wash and will still run the risk. Ridiculous (as is how much this will all cost).
5. I've come to the conclusion that I probably shouldn't pay good money for massages anymore. I had one the other day when my mom and I went to the spa and my mind ran the entire time she was trying to push out the seven million knots that have taken residence in my shoulders.
6. Every summer I tend to partake in a little book-buying-binge. So far, I had been pretty good, convincing myself I had plenty of books. And then yesterday happened and I ordered six books. That's what getting paid will do to you.

7. I hate it when people pose their criticism in such a way that it's asked as a question. You know the person is trying to point out something they disagree with or something that they think you're doing wrong, and instead of having the balls to just call you out on it, they try to make it seem as if they're just curious.
8. I started Donna Tartt's The Secret History the other day and am enjoying it so far, although I am getting curious as to the direction it's heading, if it is in fact going anywhere (it doesn't have to, for the record).
9. My husband bought this for my son and I think he's going to start talking like a Minion (although he sort of already does):
10. I'm not sure if this is old news, but I guess it looks like The Girl on the Train is going to be a movie, possibly starring Emily Blunt. I thought the book was a bit predictable, but I could see the potential for it being a decent movie.
