Notes to self

Thank you for storing Tyler's old clothes even when you weren't sure you would have another man child to wear them one day. All the long sleeves are coming in handy. However, there was only one pair of pants in that box. Be warned: Gavin's knees might blast through all of the new ones you just bought.

*

Your family has reached the stage of life where eight hamburger buns just aren't enough for one meal. Plan accordingly.

*

Flossing isn't that hard. Just do it.

*

Ditto for morning walks on the treadmill. How lazy are you, anyway?

*

Reading books out loud is good for your soul, even if Lexi doesn't appear to be listening. A good rendition of Sandra Boynton's Barnyard Dance can't help but put a smile on your face.

*

You haven't lost your mind. The Costco Photo Center just lost your photos. But they found them, and they are waiting for you. You owe them some money.

*

Zach is only five inches shorter than you are. Your prediction that he would grow taller than you by age 10 may actually come to pass.

*

It's a good time of year to plant tulip bulbs. Just sayin'.

*

Pretty soon you're going to regret not taking pictures of the breathtaking fall foliage in your neighborhood. Make it a priority soon, before all the leaves disappear.

*

There is purpose in your life and in the little things you do. Don't forget it.

*

Paying a babysitter for things like visiting teaching, parent/teacher conferences, and grocery shopping just might save your sanity. Lining a college student's pocket with money is also a noble cause.

*

You are still out of taco seasoning, despite numerous recent trips to the store. Maybe when you go in for the photos....?

*

Next time you take Excedrin in the afternoon, don't follow up with a Dr. Pepper for dinner. You just might be up all night.
