Tidbits

It's been a little while since I managed to log anything, so I'll be doing this while trying not to sprint to the back of the house and find out just what all the gleeful screaming is about. I don't want to know. I know I don't.

I've learned a few things in the past week or so that you just might find handy, so I thought I'd share.

  1. If you ask nicely and the guy has hope of making a sale, yes, a BMW dealer will let you borrow a car for the weekend...even if you tell him you're taking it to Fresno.

  2. When planning a birthday celebration, do not invite all your high-faluting rich, conservative friends AND your down-to-earth brother who had to fly in from uber-liberal nowhere, Illinois. It wasn't ugly, but it sure was weird.

  3. Claiming an urgent need to go letterboxing with your 3-year-old is an acceptable way to exit a weird party quickly.

  4. One night on a bad, lumpy mattress can make you miserable for days...long past when you've recovered from your daughter getting up and jumping on her inflatable bed (in the same room) at 3a.m.

  5. Nothing is quite as priceless as departing for a road trip at bedtime, kids clad in pajamas, and having them sleep almost the entire way home.

But you didn't tell us about the *most* important thing you learned in the past week: How did you get those cute little blue elliptical bullets into your list?

Ooh...I'm with mommien. I want those blue bullets!

Also a BMW would be nice.
