New things I'm trying:
1. first kid going to preschool
2. cream cheese filled pumpkin muffins
3. exercising everyday (so far, so good. we'll see if I keep it up)
4. Stephanie Meyer books--1/3 of the way through Twilight and loving it! I can't wait to see what happens next.
5. Chore chart for my 3-year-old. Easy stuff like making her bed, clearing her dishes after meals, and maybe putting away her laundry. I don't know, that last one may end up being more work for me.

What a great blog topic!

Bytheway, I'm looking for a good book to read after the Stephanie Meyer series. Any suggestions? Maybe nothing too deep or overwhelming, just something that I won't be able to put down.

What a great way to find new music to add to my iPod! Thanks.

Have you ever heard of Georgette Heyer? She writes romance mysteries that are set in the same period as Jane Austin wrote. She wrote them all 20-40 years ago, but you can still get them some places. I really enjoy them. You probably would too if you like Pride and Prejudice and so forth.

I thought of a few more fun but light books. There is a book called Cecelia and Sorcery, or the Magic Chocolate Pot which mixes Jane Austen time with magic. It is a lot of fun and has a sequel which I do not know the name of. Both were fun.

I also read The Princess Academy. It was a fun little read. I want to read The Goose Girl and its sequels too, but haven't yet.

I believe all these are young adult fiction, but I enjoyed them a lot. I'll keep thinking.
