brain fart

I wasn't thinking today - or maybe I've just had the fight beat out of me. Whatever it was, I agreed to have a few sleepovers tonight, which means that I presently have 6 kids instead of the usual 4. Though Angel #2 has had her boyfriend visit the last 2 nights, which is like having 3 kids around instead of the actual 5 because they tend to hide out from the rest of the family. Of course, that doesn't stop Angel #4 from spying on them or anything.

Angel #2 and I went shopping today, just the two of us, which doesn't happen very often. She usually would rather shop with friends, but, since I control the checkbook.... I bought her a few pair of shoes, she only needed a good pair for church, but Payless was having a buy one pair get the 2nd 1/2 off, so she got herself a pair of Converse-looking hightops as well. Then we headed to Walmart to do a little pricing on MP3 players. She's decided that she's going to have to pick $75 worth of coffee for the one that she wants. After shopping she did some picking today, so she's $20 closer than she was before. Since she uses an old cd player now, I figure we'll save a ton of money on batteries once she gets the MP3.

So, are any of my vast swarms of readers doing Nanowrimo next month? For those of you not in the Nano loop, Nanowrimo stands for National Novel Writing Month and it's held every November. The idea is to write 50,000 words, starting with word number 1 on November 1st and having the final word count by midnight on November 30. I've complete Nano for 3 years now - my book It Takes Moxie was my very first Nano project. So, if you enjoy writing and want a little kick start, consider giving Nano a try, it's a lot of fun.

The kids got me an MP3 player for my birthday this year. I really love it, especially for long walks, the sound is so great it's like you are in your own little world. Plus it's great to tune the kids out. lol.
