agirlandaboyleah to preschool for reminding me about valentines because it hadn't even occurred to me that Fox would need some (dur). to preschool for having its Valentine's Day party tomorrow morning and making it a potluck. 2h
  •   lisa.gail Potluck... ugh... 1h
  •   agirlandaboyleah @lisa.gail For real. And "please don't bring candy" is followed by signups for juice, muffins, and waffles with sprinkles. I'm taking Orange Slices of Defiance. 43min

agirlandaboyleah We didn't tell the kids about Disneyland because we didn't want to disappoint them if February weather ended up forcing us to cancel. WELP. 3d
  •   mavsmom711 We told our boys the morning we left that we were going to Disney World. They thought we were visiting my parents in Alabama. Instead my parents met us in Orlando. They were so excited when we told them. It was the best! 3d
  •   ofgoodfamily My husband was stationed in California a long, long time ago and I looked at him wistfully, this past (cold) weekend and asked, "Is the weather really truly amazing all the time out there?" He nodded emphatically. 3d
  •   hollylynne We were there yesterday and it was hot! Bring sunblock, have fun!! 3d
  •   kathryn_humphreys Wow, that weather looks pretty crappy. 3d
  •   agirlandaboyleah @hollylynne You just made me realize that Super Bowl Sunday would have been the perfect day to go! Drat. 2d
  •   hollylynne @agirlandaboyleah Well, yes, because we were there! Honestly though, the crowds were pretty average until 3pm-ish. All of February is a great time to visit! 2d
  •   madmadmaddiepants Ahhhhh!!!! 2d
  •   lisansutton That happened to us last year at this time, too. I took P all by myself and it was hard with the heat/crowds/tired/cranky. Have fun! 2d

  •   sizzlesays Is E.T. in there? 7d
  •   mavsmom711 This is my house too. Jackson keeps adding more animals to his bed. Barely has room for himself. 7d

agirlandaboyleah Done! (Quotes flagged for later transcription into my quote journal.) 1w
  •   magdalenam Do you want to come down to LA on the 21st for our book club/group therapy session y/n 1w
  •   agirlandaboyleah @magdalenam It actually makes me want to call a meeting of our old middle school lunch crew so we can sit and talk and give shape to the last twenty (OMG) years. 1w
  •   cerebralclime True! I guess I use goodreads for the same thing. 1w
  •   petithiboux BEST BEST BEST. I loved this book so hard. 1w
  •   itsadaline @agirlandaboyleah @magdalenam what is this book that everybody keeps raving about?! 1w
  •   itsadaline And also, I'm in for a Midvale middle school lawn lunch book club reunion. But only if we have chips, soda and gobstoppers or runts as our food (because that's all I ever remember having for lunch). 1w
  •   agirlandaboyleah @itsadaline We're gonna need to find a case of Crystal Pepsi. 1w
  •   abbydee3 A. This is next on my list to start. And B. I thought I was the only weirdo who has journals and journals of book quotes. 🏼 3d

agirlandaboyleah We got a new baby at the new-baby store. Don't tell him we'll eat her on Thursday. 2w
  •   nannersp 2w
  •   sararooster The bags of dry beans were my babies. I hid them under my pillow so my mom couldn't cook them. Just a heads up in case you can't find your dinner Thursday. 2w
  •   kylasweet1 You have to read Sophie's Squash by Pat Z. Miller! 2w
  •   agirlandaboyleah @kylasweet1 We have! I love that one. 2w
  •   agirlandaboyleah @sararooster Technical question: Was one bag one baby, or did each bag contain hundreds of babies? 2w
  •   sararooster one bag one baby! When your arms are tiny you can cradle it beautifully. 2w

agirlandaboyleah Although I now officially care about "A Little Life" (cc: @erinbumg), I still have my concerns (please let this not turn out to be torture pr0n), and I continue to question various odd choices ("choices"?) of the editorial team. Hire me, Doubleday! 2w
  •   kapachino Oh man I can't do that one. 2w
  •   erinbumg Yeah that's an odd dating choice. But it definitely doesn't turn into torture p0rn. Torture yes. Not in any perverse pleasurable way. 2w
  •   stateofkate Yeahhhh I found myself surprisingly drawn into it as well but am very conflicted about reading the whole thing. 2w
  •   agirlandaboyleah @erinbumg I find things like true-crime entertainment personally problematic, but it's different when it's fiction, obvs. I'm hopeful that the hard stuff does not turn gratuitous/sensationalistic, esp given how much valuable stuff is to be learned otherwise. I'm on page 233 and forging bravely ahead! (Thank you for being my sounding board, Erin!) 2w
  •   agirlandaboyleah @stateofkate I find myself wanting to hurry up and finish so I can read all the criticism/reviews. Ha! 2w
