WANTED: personal assistant

My life has been subsumed by baby tending.  It's EXHAUSTING.  I'm finally at the point where I care that my life has been subsumed, but I don't know if I have the energy to DO anything about it.

I spent nearly $100 at Lowes yesterday on stuff to either a) baby proof or b) organize/clean (aka - baby proof).  Maybe I'm going overboard.  I'd really like to just stick Albert in a bubble to keep him safe from harm and germs.  That would be a LOT easier.  And probably cheaper.  I bet I could rig something out of bubble wrap and duct tape...

My filibuster reading list

My sister and I were talking about how Congress members now just THREATEN to filibuster.  No one actually does it anymore - the threat is enough. 

We both remembered the movie "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington" and how Jimmy Stewart's character actually does filibuster to prevent a bill from moving forward - he reads books and keeps talking the whole time.  Her filibuster reading list would be "The Hobbit".  I chose "Jane Eyre".  Then we realized the Lord of the Rings trilogy would be even better.

But the best idea we had to read for a filibuster was The List of Reasons that I am Awesome.  A start below:
  1. I am me.
  2. I have wavy hair.
  3. My thumbs bend backwards.
  4. I can sing the National Anthem.
  5. I like tea.
  6. I know the names of the Seven Dwarfs.
  7. Who wouldn't want to be me?
What about you?  What would your filibuster reading list include?

Day 2

Tell us the story of a piece of jewelry you own. Where did it come from, and what does it mean to you?

I have a gold chain that my parents bought for me as a Christmast gift. I don't remember how old I was. It has several charms on it that represent all the important things in my life - so I can keep them close to my heart:
  • a gold locket - with a picture of my mom and dad inside - my dad bought it for me as a Valentine's gift when I was in high school. My sister has one as well - this was the same year he bought my mom a diamond tennis bracelet.
  • a gold cross - my parents bought this for me when I was 8 years old and made my First Communion. Two years later, they unwittingly bought the same one for my sister. It had a diamond chip in it, which fell out a few years back. I had it replaced - one of the first diamonds I bought myself.
  • a lavalier - again, from my parents.  It's a carved badge of my sorority.
  • a small gold circle - I bought this for myself after I had my son, and it has his name stamped into it.
In reference to NaBloPoMo prompt...
