Some Thoughts about Some Things

Here's a peek into our lives lately (warning: random thoughts ahead):

-When I get into a taxi with the boys, 9 times out of 10 the taxi driver asks me if they are twins. They are always surprised when I say no. And then they ask if the boys are a year apart. Again they are surprised when I say they are two years apart and Levi is only two years old.

-About 5 minutes after our floors have been vacuumed and mopped, the boys will spill something that has 10.2 million crumbs on it and it will have to be re-vacuumed. (We vacuum our marble floors because it gets more of the crumbs/hair than sweeping. And it's a LOT faster!)

-Every time we get out of a taxi and it drives off, Levi asks, "Where taxi going?" Every time. And every time I say, "to pick up someone else." Sometimes I feel like my life is set on repeat.

-I went to a clothing website today to look at a blouse. I clicked on "Sizing Chart" and found this information: "Please be aware that our clothing is Contemporary sized which runs small. Please refer to the following size chart below." That is code for nothing here will fit you, move on. I wonder how many other stores are going to "contemporary" sizes. Hmpf.

-Levi is showing us that he's ready to start potty training. If we ask him if he needs to go, he'll say yes, but he's unable to recognize this before he needs to go. We're not stressing about it, but just letting him get used to the idea. This is about the same age that Caleb potty-trained.

-I've had really amazing conversations about faith with more than one person this week. God is doing some cool stuff.

-I'm reading Donald Miller's Blue Like Jazz and several other books right now.

That is all. :-)

Taxi drivers ask interesting questions, don't they? I often got asked how much did we pay for our place.

Do you like Blue Like Jazz? My husband read it, but I haven't yet.

Sorry I haven't emailed you back. Life kind of crashed for a while.

I could comment about all these things, but I will spare you for now and just say that I read Blue Like Jazz a couple years ago and mostly really liked it. I'd be interested to hear your thoughts when you're done. :-)

It's fun reading through your thoughts!

We're NO WHERE NEAR potty training with our 3 year old. He's just not at all interested. :)

Let me know what you think of Miller's book. I thought I liked it until about halfway through and then he finally irritated a pet peeve of mine and I stopped reading it. I tried another of his books and it started out the same way so I stopped reading Miller books. I'm a harsh critic. :)
