Thursday Ten, The Sarah’s HOME ALONE Edition

1. Pumpkin is LOVING school. They potty train by giving the kids a marshmallow if they are successful in going on the potty… so… I bought some marshmallows yesterday, and… SHE PEED! It was only once, but progress is progress (Niki – I can’t wait to tell your mom!).

2. Music of the week: Jack Johnson, of course. I’m still so psyched about getting tickets to his concert. I’m listening to “In Between Dreams” on repeat.

3. In high school, I had my astrological chart done and one of the things the woman said was that I’m like a “peaceful remote island where people come to let down their walls and heal”. Well, even 15 years later, I still remain “The Island Of Sarah”. A friend vented to me today, and basically is having a very tough time and I can’t help and I can’t fix it and it hurts me to feel so helpless in not being able to help someone.

4. I am once again on my mission to drink more water. I’m on my third 32-oz. bottle of water. And yes, I’ve spent a lot of time peeing.

5. I’m in the process of figuring out Facebook. I’ve been on MySpace for awhile, and I like it. Then I started seeing the iPhone commercials for the Facebook web application, so I thought I’d tinker with it to see if I could figure it out so that I could waste more time on my phone. Anyone else use Facebook? Any hints to figure it out?

6. I thought drinking all this water was supposed to make me less hungry? I’m starving. What’s up with that?

7. I am completely without any books to read at the moment. Any recommendations?

8. My house is so blissfully calm with no children here. And clean too. And my kid is having FUN! Fun! Why didn’t I do this before?

9. I am so excited. I almost have enough credit card points for a $100 gift card… and I have already “spent” that in my head. So many books and cd’s I want. $100 doesn’t go very far, but, I’m looking forward to getting some new stuff. Some CDs I’m lusting after: The Killers, more Jack Johnson (yeah, I’m crushing on his music these days). And several books (as always).

10. I’m SO over the Lennon/McCartney theme on American Idol. I’m glad that the Rock n’ Roll nurse is gone, because she annoyed the hell out of me, but as much as I love The Beatles, some of the obscure (BORING) song choices were making me craaaaazy.

About sarah

Sarah is a book nerd, a music lover, an endorphin junkie, a coffee addict. Oh, and a goof ball. She writes, she tweets, and she sings off key.


  1. I’m trying to drink more water too but I want to know if you pee more do you get marshmallows? 🙂

    Good for pumpkin and good for you! My mom was just telling me that my kids should be potty trained now! They are 21 months! I was talking to her on the phone and I asked Madeleine to bring me a diaper and she said, “if she can bring you a diaper on command she should be going on the potty.” Whatevah.

    Books…. I don’t read much any more (too tired) but I will say that “Year of Wonders” by Geraldine Brooks is one of my favorites.

    I don’t know much about facebook- just joined myself and still trying to figure it out.

  2. Niki – that sounds like your mom : ) Funny! I need to go by and see her tonight – I made peanut butter brownies (featuring the smashed up head of a chocolate easter bunny instead of chocolate chips!). I’ll have to tell her that we had ONE potty success so far.

    (And no, no one gives me squat for all the time I spent peeing now that I’m drinking a bazillion gallons of water).

    I’ll try to find ya on Facebook 🙂
