...Last night PJ and I celebrated Rosh Hashanah (the Jewish New Year) with the Oldest/Bestest and her family at her house. It was a relaxed night, proven by the fact that Randi let me slice the cheese for the cheese plate. Really, she should know better, but I managed to cut out a plateful of little squares that everyone consumed happily. Our friend Stacy was also there and it was almost like a Girls Night as the three of us prepped dinner and chatted while the kids played in the playroom. We filled our bellies with delicious food and chatted about our favorite TV shows (Honey Boo Boo and The Daily Show were crowd favorites), parenting, work, and how good the food was. It was the perfect way to welcome the New Year, with people you have known and loved forever.
...Rosh Hashanah made me think a bit about the Dumb Things Challenge for this month, and how perfect the timing was to coincide with the Jewish New Year. I stopped at Target on the way to Randi's to get the turkey gravy she requested, and walked by the cute new clothes, Someecard magnets, and soft infinity scarves. Walking by all of that Target goodness? So dumb. But, I stuck to the Spending Freeze. Squats? Did 'em. Crunches? F-worded my way through them. My resolutions are Jewish this year, and I love it!
...In "Sometimes You Need A Coffee Just To Make Your Coffee" News, this morning I tried to put flour in my coffee cup. I like to add my Coffee Enhancers first, then have the Keurig pour the coffee in next. This morning, after I heard that familiar spitting sound, indicating that my coffee was brewed, I entered the kitchen and opened the fridge, as if the Keurig somehow placed it there to take the edge off the heat. Then I stood there for a FULL FIVE SECONDS wondering why I didn't see my coffee. I wish I was kidding, but it's a true story.
...and finally, Marla and I just watched The Canyons, the Lindsey Lohan movie with the porn star dude. It will take a very long time to recover. If someone asks if you want to watch it...just...don't. Don't.
