Read to the boys every day. 

The book fair was at school last week for the boys. They brought home 3 books each but only Aliens Love Dinopants seems to have made an impression. God, I loved the book fair as a kid. The other one in heavy rotation this week was a Disney’s Wonderful World of Reading book from when I was a kid, Goofy and the Miller, which… I don’t understand the message of at all. Goofy and two goof offs work at this mill.  Goofy does ALL the work and the two goof offs just smoke cigarettes and gamble. The miller decides he wants to retire and says that whomever of the three bring him the best horse gets the mill! Goofy winds up in the woods and helps an old lady do shit like cut wood, then he’s like, “Later, old lady, I gotta find a horse,” and the old lady’s like, I’ll get you a horse just wait three days. And he agrees! The goof offs bring good horses and the miller is torn, but agrees to wait three days for Goofy’s offering.  And low and behold, three days later a princess arrives and it was the old lady and the horse she brings is the best! He broke the spell that was cast over her. So he gets the mill! But then the princess says, or you can just come be with me, boo, and he does. And then the two goof offs have to work to prove which one should get the mill. But we don’t get any resolution to that. We just know that now Goofy is banging a human princess. The kids like it.

Read 25 books (11/25) (not related to above)

Still listening to A Great and Terrible Beauty on audio, and I figured out how to check out audio books from the library and get them downloaded right to my phone! That is probably not new information for other people, but for me it’s revolutionary! Next up is Rogue Lawyer by John Grisham. I love me a good mystery when I’m driving.  Just finished Days of Blood and Starlight I feel like a fair amount of the reviews I read said they didn’t like it as much as the first, but I think I liked it better. Book three, Dreams of Gods and Monsters, is waiting on my bedside.

Floss every day

Floss, floss, floss.

Eat vegetables one time a week (11/52)

I’m really off my smoothie game, but have been eating vegetables with lunch. However, lunch out is starting to be too big a budget item and I’ll need to scale back on that. Hopefully next week I can do some smoothies and lunch salads.

Break phone addiction (phone off at 10pm at night and away when I’m not taking pictures or checking email at home)
