+ I've decided there are two problems with making your own sushi: 1) it's so good you eat way too much of it and spend the rest of the night feeling bleh... but still contemplating another piece; and 2) it's so good you want to make it every day! I haven't stopped thinking about it since Tuesday night. I think we'll try to make some this coming week as well, if I can find a good price on some fresh fish or shellfish.

+ Poor Lijah had to get three shots today. He's still catching up on vaccinations, and today was his yearly check-up. He officially grew six inches in a year. Dang. And he's only gained three pounds! The doctor said as long as he eats well, she's not worried, and he definitely does eat well. But I still wonder if we should make him eat more fatty (but healthy) things. I don't know. He seems quite healthy to me though - very normal for a 3-year-old, just tall. In other words, he takes after me.  ;o)

+ I'm nervous about our immigration approval for the second adoption. It expires on the 19th and we still don't have our home study ready to send in to update it. Now, we should have it Monday - I hope - but I'm probably going to overnight it just for piece of mind. I hope they go by the postmark date and not by when they actually look at it. Once we have the home study though, we're almost to the point of submitting our dossier to Holt, which means we're almost on the waiting list for a kiddo! I'm going to say that won't happen till October though because there are still a few hoops to jump through with paperwork. And of course it all hinges on our immigration being renewed in time. Otherwise we don't get on the waiting list till we go through that whole process again, which usually takes 2-3 months.  =oÞ

+ I did not get enough sleep last night. I couldn't fall asleep till around 2am, and then woke up at 7 because Isaac forgot to turn off his alarm when he got up before it. I couldn't go back to sleep because I knew we had to get to the doctor's office relatively early. Oy. I took a good 2-hour nap this afternoon, but Lijah didn't sleep as long as I did so he woke me up. I probably could've slept straight through to morning.

+ I'm sure there's more to say, but I don't remember. So, have a good weekend, everyone!

X - X-rays. While that is partially because I'm more thankful for x-rays than for xylophones, it is mainly because x-rays are so helpful. I can't imagine what it was like before x-rays, MRIs, and such, when the only way doctors could see inside of us was to cut us open!

Y - Yelling. I mostly do it at concerts, I used to do it at my brothers, and doing it at Olympians makes several songs much more fun. That said, I like it in moderation. Hehe.

Z - Zzzzzs. I love sleep, which may be because I need more of it than most people (and haven't gotten much lately). I actually wish that wasn't the case, but I love a good nap or falling asleep cuddled up to the 'sposo.

And now in 26 days I have given thanks for 26 things beginning with all 26 letters.

+ So, I got all the work done that I could do today in a little over 7 hours. I picked Isaac up from home on my way back from Orange Park (where I got stuff for church, so I count it as work time) and he worked on his laptop on my desk while I worked assembling notebooks and letters at my counter. That was nice - I could just turn around and lean over and kiss him. He was kind enough to stuff and seal the envelopes for me as I did other work, which is why I got out of there in under 8 hours. I just have the bulletin and sermon PowerPoint to do on Saturday evening, which means I may get to do more at Fellowship Group than just eat. Yay!

+ Wednesday nights are such awesome TV nights. Pushing Daisies, Criminal Minds (most Wednesdays, but, sadly, not tonight), Law & Order, and Bones to watch online tomorrow or Friday. I just heard the other day that Pushing Daisies is canceled though. Sad. But at least we get to finish this season - unlike what happened to Journeyman last year.

+ So apparently the friends I referred to Swagbucks had a good day too. Instead of being up to 83 points, I'm up to 99! ROCK ON! I'm 1/4 of the way to a $50 Southwest Airlines GC! Thanks to all who've joined under me.

+ Yesterday as I walked to work I saw a sign on a church a few blocks from our house that Tim Hawkins is coming there on Dec. 15! Tim Hawkins is tied with Brian Regan for my favorite comedian. We will so be there to see him! I can't wait. (If you haven't heard of him, look him up on YouTube.) If I hadn't walked to work, I wouldn't have known about this! Walking to work is fun too because Ken and John (youth pastor) walk by my office and look confused - "Wait - I didn't know you were here. Where's your car?" Hehe.

+ I'm wearing a magenta sweater with pretty big (larger than a nickel) jeweled flower buttons today. It's a recent thrift store find, originally from Express, and part angora, so it's really soft. It is SO not traditional Bethany (did I mention it's magenta and has big jeweled flower buttons?), but I love it! Speaking of recent thrift store finds that I love, those 3 pairs of $3 jeans that I got at a recent storewide 50% off sale have pretty much been worn every day since I got them. This is now my Holy Grail brand and size, I think. I hope they still fit when I lose the inches off my hips.

+ I uploaded my potential commercial comp. card photos to Facebook, and would love your opinions on them. If you have a FB, you can leave comments there. If you don't, please let me know here which ones you like best. I need to know which ones are people's faves so I can choose which ones to have printed to show to Suzi. I may end up printing them all... unless there're some no one likes at all. With prints running 19¢ each, if there are just 5 I don't print, that's saving $1. Yeah, I'm cheap. Did I mention paying upwards of $5K for a new roof this week?  =o/

+ I listed some of my CVSing goodies and shoes I barely wore on Ebay. If any of you wear a size 10 shoe, or 11 if you like knee-high boots, check out my auctions. *crosses fingers that it'll all sell*

+ I think getting more cardio has been helping me sleep better. I haven't been laying awake for hours any night since I started walking everywhere. That's a big praise!

+ I've been seriously craving Gilmore Girls lately. I would start watching them again if I wasn't already working my way through Buffy for the first time since it aired. Heh. Maybe I can do both at once?

+ Well, I need to go finish up my laundry and pack for Charleston. We're leaving EARLY, so the next time I update will be from there.  =o)
