the Bad: putting on my parka this morning after bannishing it to the basement
the Good: hearing Edie say "I love Spring, all the little people come out of their holes"
the Bad: Christian Dior waterproof mascara. I'm pretty sure if I grabbed some hot tar off the street and globbed it on my eyelashes, it would be exactly the same thing (only not $32!!!)
the Good: I look kinda pretty in a sleepy way without mascara on.
the Good: a closet full of awesome clothes
the Bad: being so fucking sick of winter clothes
the Bad: R.I.P my cute little cellphone with all my songs on it - got soaked in my yoga bag when by water leaked.
the Good: a sweet hip friend who gave me iPod mini because she has since upgraded (ummmm, anyone know how to work a mini???)
the Bad: a zero social life this week
the Good: 8 hours sleep, every night. Bliss
the Bad: hearing Edie moan and cry at night
the Good: we are breaking the soother habit at long last. Wish us luck.
the Good: Grace is reading and spelling!
the Bad: Grace can now decode everything Jo and I spell to each other that we don't want the kids to hear. Oh, did I mention she is fluent in both official languages? I think Jo and I will have to take a course in Mandarin or something to stay one step ahead of that girl.
the Good: Hopping on a train on Thursday, heading to Toronto for an "industry" party, hanging with friends and family, leaving the kids at home.
the Bad: ummmm, I'm sure by Saturday I'll be missing the homefront? Maybe?
On that note, I will be on a train for close to five hours on Thursday and again on Saturday. I will have that amount of time UNINTERRUPTED to read. Suggestions please! I don't really like the Harry Potter or Twilight genres.....but if you had read something fab, preferably Canadian (I can borrow Can-lit from work) please let me know.
