Birthday party.

Maybe I am trying to impart my own love of birthday to my child.  I loved her birthday as much as she did.  It's so fun to decorate the house after she goes to bed the night before, set out presents for before breakfast opening, make special food.  I loved having streamers and balloons in the dining room when it was my birthday as a kid, waking up and coming out to see birthday decorations is so wonderful.

Mid-summer: don't let anyone tell you it's not.

reading The Heart is a Lonely Hunter for book club.  It's very good.  But you knew that, Oprah told everybody a few years ago.

listening "Roller Coaster Ride" as covered by Mates of State.

eating almondina cookies.

watching Breaking Bad.

cleaning and organizing our garage, office, girls' room.  Utilizing craigslist and the ikea as-is dept. for all they can possibly offer to us.

wishing and dreaming of road trips to Alaska, cruises to Mexico, Disneyland, New Mexico.
