*I can't not advertise a new website that was launched today, since a lot of my favorite bloggers are a part of this 20-person team: The place is (in)courage, and they're already hosting a giveaway! I'm looking forward to seeing what happens here - check it out!
*I walked outside for a moment this morning and found I couldn't breathe out there. It's just a little disconcerting that humidity can make the air THAT thick.
*We got a new rug for our living room over the weekend. You see, our old rug has seen a bit of wear and tear in the last five years or so, what with moves and cats and kid. We'd been pricing them out and had settled for a brown one at Walmart for $78 or so (which was a savings from the $90 rug we had liked at Target). But then we found a completely different one for about $40 at Walmart, a white Berber look, and I love it. I love the $50 savings we got for waiting on that purchase too...
*I think I would be really bad at Twitter most of the time, which is why I don't have a Twitter account. Those of you who know me probably think I'm really bad at Facebook already! Sure, I think out loud during the day, but nobody seriously wants to see what I'm rambling about! I'm just not that interesting!
*I think our cat Mia weighs as much as our toddler. I'm not sure if that reflects worse on the skinny toddler or the fat cat.
*For a little while on here, I had a widget that offered pictures and links back to older posts of mine. I thought it made the blog look too cluttered, but I liked the idea. Does anyone have any opinions as to whether I should use it here or not? (You can see examples of this widget in use here and here.)
*I just kicked a sinus infection in about three days by taking a 3-tablet dose of my GNLD garlic allium complex before bed at night. Pete had this gunky thing first, and it lasted him about two weeks, with a horrid sore throat and a bad stuffy nose that went with the thick drainage behind his eyes down into his chest. I just have to say, if you want an effective antiviral/antibiotic, I have one!
*Our pediatrician has recommended both a seasonal flu shot and a swine flu vaccine for both Piper and me in order to protect the baby this year. I've never had a flu shot, and I've never been very keen on the idea of getting them. But I feel as though I should consider it this year. Does anybody have any thoughts? I'm curious about any possible side effects?
*Also, if you haven't noticed, I'm having some nesting issues here at my blog, so I hope you will pardon my dust. The seasons are switching from hot summer to hot fall and school is getting ready to start, and I always get antsy for the holidays around this time of year. We've already done everything we can afford to do to the house, so I think the blog is going to get the brunt of this nesting Mama syndrome. Also, keep your eyes open for an address change. It's time.
