Ow, that place on my bum that isn't my bum but more like my hip but not my hip kinda between the hp and maybe it is my bum after all, but that place that popped a couple of months ago still hurt and it's a...ahem...bummer.
The outside of my left foot constantly aches which I wouldn't mind if that meant something like "Hey, you're about to win the lottery!" but I'm afraid it really means "Hey, you're too fat!"
The Y quit having homeschool mornings in child care and the Evil Genius is too young to use the equipment, so I can't go in the mornings, and afternoons are out because Sprout naps (and so do I when I can), besides which we can't take her if she's been sick (24 hours fever free), which she has been often of late due to fractious ears and generous lashings of snot.  I miss the Y.  Maybe I'll get to go back there some day.
This morning I edited more than 300 photographs in preparation for some serious Etsy madness.  If you want to support artists and give fabulous, unique gifts, go check out Unleash the Goddess on Etsy.  Tell her Kyddryn sent ya.  You won't get a discount, but she'll smile at me, which is worth a fair bit in my book.
The baby knows when she's poopy and anounces it with a plaintive "I pooooo-oooop" and furrowed brow.  Oh, dear sweet Goddess of all things potty related, please let this be a sign that the girl will potty train more swiftly and easily than her brother did!
Sprout hs also learned a toddler's two most useful phrases:  "Mine!" and "I want that!".  Joy.
What would you rather have with baked ham, mac and cheese or scalloped potatoes?

Scalloped potatoes. Not that I eat them anymore (or that I eat much ham anymore either), but it is still what I would prefer.

Some kind soul lucky enough to be near you might watch this video and see whether the the stretch and elbow thing would work to help your not-quite-hip area. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UFXWrYoS9ho
