I got my tickets, did you?

Granted, they're in the nosebleeds, but I'm still going! I absolutely can not wait. You know, they had some tickets on sale for $250 each. Now, U2 has been my favorite band since I was in 6th grade, but come on. For that money, I'd expect a chair right up on the stage. Or a private serenade with songs chosen by me and a lengthy conversation. Plus, I've been to U2 concerts before and really, you get a pretty good view anywhere.

5 months
2 weeks and
6 days to go!

feeling: I can't wait!
listening to: U2 (Heartland) <-- aww, it's too bad I can't pick out their playlist. I'd like to hear this live.

weekend breakfast

We have breakfast everyday. Correction, my family has breakfast everyday, I make it. It's true that with all the running around, on weekdays, I usually only have coffee. I make sure they eat, though. Weekends are different. We're usually not in a rush to get anywhere and have more time to make something yummy.
Now, my kids really like routine. It used to be that they loved having some gross-out eggs every weekend. Now they like having the gross-out eggs in Sundays and this on Saturdays. . . .

I originally found the recipe here. I just changed it up a bit. I found it too dry. We use 4 eggs instead of 1, 5 tablespoons of milk instead of two, six slices of bacon instead of the whole package (I don't use the pre-cooked kind either), omit the chives but pour maple syrup on it once it's done. I make it for the four of us, but we always have some left over. Anyway, I thought I'd share because it's super easy, super fast and really tasty. Yeah, yeah, I know it's refrigerated dough, but the reason I was looking on their website in the first place, is because I'd gotten a bunch of those Grands on sale.
Yum, I can almost taste it all nice and warm with some good coffee . . . . . -drool-.

feeling: apparently hungry

books, books, books

There's no point in telling you what I've been up to. It's always the same thing . . . . the kids. Right now I want to tell you that it finally happened. I want to read the books that Brianna reads. Ugh, I feel so old. I thought some of the collections she's read and told me about are cute, like this one. Then she read this book. I seriously had to ask her to stop telling about it, because it sounded so interesting, I didn't want to know the end. Now, she's onto
this series and it sounds alright too. She's currently reading Alicia. This isn't a series I would've picked, but she and all her friends are into it, so you know how that goes.
Here's the thing, she asked if she could borrow my Twilight series and also wants to read The Uglies series. I think she's a bit too young for those, though. I haven't read any of The Uglies. Are they good? I definitely have to read them now to see if they're appropriate for her to read. As for Twilight, well a lot of her friends have older brothers and sisters and know all about the story. The kids are "playing" Twilight at recess. They pick an Edward and argue about who will be Bella. -sigh-.
Seriously, didn't Brianna just start kindergarten? How is she 10 years old so fast? I'm not ready.

feeling: old
