Sparkle - I'm in for NM! Not so sure I could talk DH into it though.
JenLove - sending my thoughts for Tripod's return.
Lofty - love the wash-your-age concept!
I have finally gotten my kids to make their beds daily by taking money out of their allowance every time they miss. Each child has a glass jar with their allowance in quarters in it. If they don't make their bed, that's 50 cents. Same with skipping piano practice. I only had to take out quarters once, and now they all make beds daily.
RR - dragging my significantly chubby keister to the Y this morning.
NRR - DD1 asked me what Newtown was this morning, so I gave her a very general idea of the shootings there. She seemed very relieved when I told her the shooter was dead and would not be coming to her school too . I hope to finish my shopping today and get some wrapping done too. Plus I am still waiting for that riding helmet to arrive....
