Sorry for the funk, I feel the same way... but on a brighter note, let me know how you like the aquarium... we are coming to Chi town in March and it's on my list of things to do with the kid while my husband works...

perhaps a visit with MM for a grandenonfattwopumpwithwhipwhitemocha a la Starbucks ?

Wishing and brushing your teeth don't count as accomplishments.

I think you should write more columns and little articles for magazines. You're very very good at it, and that kind of productivity would help motivate you.

That's my 2 cents.

G--for shiggity--I would LOVE to meet up with you when you are in town! The aquarium is nice, but if the weather is good when you're here--do Navy Pier or some other outdoor stuff! Let me know when you're in town, I can taste that gerarnlasjdflusdogsdogfhdlfsnowhip at starbucks right now!

Joel--You know, IMO, your two cents is always worth a million to me--thanks for always making me smile! And... BRUSHING TEETH IS TOO AN ACCOMPLISHMENT! So nyah! (IS that how you spell, Nyah? : )

Sorry the funk is still visiting you. Gray days do not help. I miss sunshine also.

I love Shedd we went twice over the summer. I love the Wild Reef part.

Cub--you complete understand my 'misery' -- you're right here in the grey gloom with me! I guess it just makes us appreciate that first little green blade that pokes out from the dirt all that much more!

Cmommy said...

Joel, YES, brushing teeth is an accomplishment!

MM, since you'll be showering before the field trip tomorrow, you'll have an edge on the Things To Do List & the Feeling Attractive goal. You ARE planig to shower, correct?

I think it's "swiffering"

Have fun at the aquarium. I hope you're able to emerge from your funk soon. I don't handle winter weather well, either. Especially when it's cloudy as much as it has been this year. I need me some sunshine!
