15 days.

Ooh, that's bad. Yep, it has been 15 whole days since I last posted. Oops.

To tell you the truth, it has been a busy 15 days though, so I at least have good excuses. There were many little birthday parties attended, and there was one big birthday bash to throw for my handsome little man, who is now the ripe old age of three. Whew.

So I figure I could make a list of what I have been doing the last 15 days via my favorite way to list, bullets!

*I spent all of my days as a full-time mama. (Yes, this is what I am always doing, but it deserves to be part of the list since it still takes up most of my time.)
*I made and sent out my doll quilt for the Doll Quilt Swap III.
*I received my AWESOME quilt for Doll Quilt Swap III (pictures to come tomorrow).
*I attended three birthday parties for three little boys turning three (including my son).
*I rode over 100 miles on my scooter -- go me!
*I did a little tickling of the ivories for the children's choir I accompany.
*I walked on the treadmill. (Nope, haven't fallen off the wagon yet.)
*I cooked dinner for my family several times, and anyone that knows me personally knows this is a very big accomplishment indeed.
*That having been said, I provided for my family by way of McDonald's several times, even though I have watched the movie "SuperSize Me" and should have learned from it.
*I learned a valuable lesson in buying a birthday cake from a bakery -- if they say it will feed 30-40 people, it probably will not, unless you want the pieces of cake to be perfectly sized for your Barbie dolls (um, not that I have any Barbie dolls -- my mom never bought me any as a child, but that is a story for another day...)
*I watched a cute movie, "I'm Reed Fish", via Netflix, mainly chosen for the actress in it, my beloved Gilmore Girl, Alexis Bledel.
*I successfully pulled off a Sesame Street themed birthday party for my son, complete with messy decoupage glued treasure boxes as the craft for 12 kiddos.
*I ate gelato twice, and you'd better believe I will definitely be eating more of it now that there is a gelato-establishment less than two miles from my house.
*I hung out with two of my dearest friends from college the whole weekend.
*I got a much needed spa pedicure.
*I voted for my favorite American Idol for the first time this season (go David Cook!), which totally made me feel like a teenager, pushing redial over and over on the phone until I got through. Totally.
*And, last but not least, I continued to wash out more little boy underwear full of poo, but at least I am coming to terms with it.

More picture-filled posts to come this week -- I at least wanted to let everyone (all three of you) know that I am still alive and kickin'...
