I've been staring at an empty post for about 35 minutes, proving once again that it is pointless to attempt to blog and ignore an episode of Battle Star Galactica at the same time. It's like watching a movie while studying. Grocery shopping while talking on the phone. Talking on the phone while surfing the internet. All ineffective combinations.
Random thoughts are running through my head...
...at the conference last weekend, I chatted with a lady who is a "cloth diapering mentor". She said that using cloth diapers would save me $2500 per child. As I thought about this and did the math, I think that is a bit extreme. No doubt it would save money, and I know many people who do it for environmental reasons. I just can't seem to take that leap in my mind. I dunno. (To her credit, she was very nice and simply trying to encourage women to attempt that leap. I liked her.)
...my husband is now watching an anime cartoon. Much easier to ignore.
...I think I might like to be some kind of self-proclaimed mentor. I am contemplating perhaps a "Fountain drink mentor". (Seriously, for those of you who really want to save money on fountain drinks this summer, start saving those cups.) If you could mentor in a skill of yours that is practical but not often known, what would it be?
...two random facts about my high school friend, Rachel. She met the Pioneer Woman a few weeks ago. And she is coming to visit me this week. Two very exciting events in her life that are so close together. Lucky her. Lucky me. Lucky Pioneer Woman.
...if the Fountain drink mentor doesn't take off, I have the back up ideas of "Decorating your house with things in your own basement" mentor or Grilled pizza mentor. Both very practical skills.
...the cartoon is actually getting interesting so this post is losing steam.
...hope you have a good week. Hope I have a good week. Going to bed now would help.
