35 things:

  1. I got up and exercised for 20 minutes on my free elliptical machine. I've had it for a few weeks, and 20 minutes is still hard. I did challenge myself to 25 minutes one day this week and I did 2 15 minute workouts one day.

  2. I weighed myself and liked what I saw.

  3. I sent my husband out to get doughnuts before the kids left for school because I just didn't want to get out of bed yet.

  4. I just ate one.

  5. I took Jonah to his preschool party.

  6. I got so bored that I came home and cleaned the kitchen. Bad, huh? I went back to pick him up when I was done with the kitchen.

  7. I folded and put away all of my laundry. That includes hanging all my clothes and putting away the baskets.

  8. I took Jesse to get a haircut.

  9. While I was there I asked to have my eyebrows waxed and a 'do done.

  10. I picked up the girls I babysit.

  11. The kids and I made home made ice cream and had cake since one of the girls I watch is my birthday twin.

  12. I told the kids all I wanted for my birthday was a clean house.

  13. I instituted slave labor and had the kids clean the family room, the game closet, and the play room.

  14. I should have included the bathrooms in that list!

  15. Sebastian brought me a bouquet of red roses and white lilies.

  16. They are on the counter next to the anniversary bouquet of pink carnations and yellow lilies that I bought for him on Monday.

  17. He also brought me a package of Milano cookies, since they are my favorite.

  18. I made the kids mad by not opening the cookies.

  19. Before you think my husband is a cheep skate, on Mother's day he brought in a huge box and said. "Happy Mother's day. Happy anniversary. Happy birthday." It was a stand mixer.

  20. It was exactly what I wanted.

  21. My dad called and asked if I wanted to go out for dinner.

  22. We went to Mexican.

  23. I had a margarita. I thought it was REALLY strong, since I was still tipsy after my dinner.

  24. I made Jesse order off the kids menu.

  25. We both ordered enchiladas suisa. I got 2 he got 1.

  26. We should have just traded plates since he ate my second enchilada!

  27. We came home from dinner, put the kids in bed, and watched Alias on dvd.

  28. Correction: Sebastian watched Alias. I watched the inside of my eyelids. But I was already ahead of him since I watch it in the morning when I work out.

  29. I guess that makes us officially old.

  30. Tomorrow my friend and I are going to go to Canada.

  31. If you recall, we usually go out to dinner and a movie.

  32. This year I wanted to do something different, so we are going to Victoria, BC. That's different.

  33. Only the blond and the brunette are going because the red head can't get away.

  34. I'm not bitter... I'm not bitter... I'm n....

  35. It kind of messes with the whole joke. "A blond, a brunette, and a read head go to Canada...."
