Anyone Remember These???

I saw this posted on another blog and wanted to pass it along!

Anyone remember The Babysitters Club series of books??? I LOVED those books when I was younger. I collected them! My two favorites were the one where Stacey and Maryanne baby sit for a family at the beach on vacation and the super special where they were camp counselors. Anyway, an article in the New York Times says they will be making a comeback. The original publisher will be reissuing the first two books (with some slight changes in terminology to keep it up to date, i.e no mention of cassette players, etc.) PLUS a prequel that looks at the four original girls the summer before the school year portrayed in the series.

I might just sneak a peek at that since I loved them so much growing up. I always had one question though...there were over 200 books and they were published over a span of longer than a decade...HOW were those girls STILL in the 7th/8th grade???

Now if they'd just reissue Sweet Valley High....

You'll Shoot Your Eye Out!!

Gearing up for the 24 hours of "A Christmas Story" around here. I really do love that movie...the first 10 times I watch it. The last 14 get all blurry and run together. Hehehe.

I am sooooo behind this year! I have baking still to do for gifts, grocery shopping for the food I gotta make for the meal, presents to wrap, presents to MAKE (aacckkk!!!), and a little boy's room to Logan-proof so it doesn't look like a tornado went through in the mornings (yes, we're trying to toddler bed STILL!!).

On a different note (well, on two different notes), I finished all the substitute teacher stuff so I am officially one now. Yay...I think. Maybe I'll actually make some money this year. And I am doing something for myself today...going to change the hair color. To what you ask? Wait and see!

Well, I just heard a CLUNK from the living room followed by crying so I suppose that's my que to leave the computer!

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!!

Where's my vitamin C??

Apparently its easier for me to post about historical fictions, books, book reviews, and the like than it is about normal, everyday things. Hehe.

Anyway, Johnny is sick...ear infection AND sinus infection. Logan still is coughing (though its JUST a cold the doc said). I am sure at this rate I'll wake up Christmas morning sick. Must drink lots of vitamin C!!!

We did manage to get MOST of the Christmas lights up outside and the tree inside. Sure does look all purdy-like! Sat down today to figure out who is getting what pictures of Logan for Christmas presents this year and what all I have to bake for presents as well. Yes, Christmas is going to be small and as inexpensive as I can possibly get it this year. Depressing, I know.

I did finally get all the substitute teaching stuff squared away...just waiting for something in the mail I was told. Guess we'll see. The money sure would be nice right now. Still hoping for a trip to England in the spring!!
