Bookish (and not so Bookish) Thoughts

[my drugged-out pup]
Link up, link back, say hey!

1. I am obsessed with Ritz crackers and putting whatever I can on them. Today for lunch I had a few with vegetable cream cheese, peanut butter, cheese, and tabouleh (not all at the same time). I have been running quite a bit, so I think my body wants salt. 

2. Over the weekend I took Sawyer to a model train show at the local fairgrounds and he LOVED it. He was content doing laps and laps around the place, following trains around the tables. Hobby trains aren't quite my thing, but I do enjoy seeing people who are so incredibly passionate about their interests. 

3. Milk Bar Birthday Cake update: I am waiting for a larger quarter sheet pan, which should arrive tomorrow. This is my last missing item and if everything goes as planned, I will make it TOMORROW NIGHT. Unfortunately, it has to freeze for twelve hours and then thaw about for three more, so I won't be able to eat it until Friday. But still. We're getting there and I am clearly all kinds of excited.

4. Something else I am probably too excited about? Going to see LEGO Batman on Friday. We're taking Sawyer, which I know some might say he's too young for, but whatever.

5. I found Sawyer a daycare that has a kindergarten too, and I could not be more relieved. There are a surprisingly small number of satisfactory secular preschools in our area (no offense to those who do the God thing, but we have concerns), so the whole thing has caused me a great deal of anxiety. We visited the other day and Sawyer loved it, as did I. I am going to put down our deposit and application fee tomorrow so that we are guaranteed a spot for next school year. 

6. Cordie went in for yet another gum growth removal yesterday and per the usual it cost a lot and was really stressful on her. It's a necessary evil, but man I hope she doesn't get anymore. 


  1. I participated in you meme. I love this meme, it gives me a chance to tap about other stuff that I love.

  2. I hope your pup doesn't have anymore issues!

  3. I love Ritz crackers, too, especially with cream cheese...but I usually don't have any around, so I use peanut butter.

    That daycare/kindergarten sounds wonderful!

  4. I worked at a secular preschool, and I wholeheartedly support your desire for one. I am sort of Christian (grew up Christian, am now not sure), but I still wouldn't want school to be telling my kid what to believe.

  5. I'm looking forward to hearing how the Milk Bar Birthday Cake turned out! :-)

  6. We just got back from Las Vegas and stopped by Milk, I have the rum laced Cereal Milk Shake and it was so, so good.
