What kind of slime did you make? We've liked the borax and white glue slime as well as the simple cornstarch and water stuff. The mudpies book is well-used around here!
I go (virtual) house hunting all the time.
Are you making a big move or looking locally?

This happens at our house too. Good luck with the spiral books--my kids prefer loose paper, so I hear you on the piles around the house!
I finished HP7 and ds1 has started it. Dd and I have been having secret discussions so as as not to reveal anything to ds. My sister will join in once she's finished, and my niece has just started reading (she's up to book 3 now) so we're bound to have some interesting debates there. Dd is very into the fan fiction sites for HP and has done a bit of writing herself, so right now she's all about HP.
We're going swimming today if the weather holds out.
Ds1 and I have been working on a renassiance shirt for him to wear to the faire -- he's saved up for boots and a hat and anxiously awaiting their arrival in the mail. And our tickets came, so everyone is excited about that.
Ds2 is working on "reading" and "spelling" through the Webkins program.
He's forever asking me, "Mom! What does _ _ _ _ spell?" And I'm really bad at doing it that way--I have to see
the word, or at least spell it in the air with my finger. He had a sleepover with his cousins on Friday night and my older two had the house to themselves because dh and I went to a Steve Miller concert. He was...okay...but the Doobie Brothers opened and they were PHENOMENAL!
