A few days ago we (I) made a rule that each of us (I) get a half an hour of alone time every day. Since Grace we never get a chance to just sit and read a magazine or scriptures or paint our toenails all by ourselves. Jeff hates my alone time. Last night I was reading my Better Homes and Gardens's magazine in the bathtub, and it wasn't 10 minutes before he came in with Grace to see what I was doing. They sat on the toilet reading over my shoulder for the rest of alone time. Hardest part of having kids- You will never be alone again. Best part of having kids- They're cute, duh!
I LOVE Better Homes and Gardens! I have learned so much about decorating and gardening and a little bit about drug facts. It makes me want to plant a garden so bad! I think we've waited too long for a vegetable garden this year, but I am going to start an herb garden soon. My dream is to use all fresh food, and never have to shop at the grocery store again. We can grow all our own vegetables, and get meat, eggs, and milk from a farm. Maybe eventually we can even have our own farm. With a field where I'll teach yoga.

Sadie killed a baby bird today. She brought it to me in the bath. She's been depressed ever since.
After like a million days we finally caught a mouse! Yay!! Our neighbors downstairs discovered that they have them too, and they put out inhumane traps, and have already caught two, so...it's not a competition. But it kind of is. We let ours go. Back in the cupboard.
Jeff is sick today. Like really sick. Which means I got to take a special Sunday trip to Harmons to get popcicles. Booya!

We have mice in our kitchen! I've always wondered how our kitchen floor stays so clean. I'm so grossed out and fascinated at the same time. Last night while I was hiding in the dark and waiting for them to come out I heard all kinds of nibbling and scurrying. I really want to catch one. But not kill it. Mouse traps are so sad. Jeff told me that you can get traps that catch them without killing him, but then what will we do with them? I think we're just going to pretend we never even found out about them.
