Then once again we were out and about and we saw this KFC bucket on top of a chicken coop.
Oh so redneck and so funny. I wished I had my real camera instead of my phone but it gives you the general idea.

I just like this commercial (below) especially the quote it ends with, "free yourself."
I am still without a pedometer. So here are the stats .
Ending weight - 233.5
Hey, I am pretty much maintaining. Still don't have the mojo back. Several simultaneous stressful things are happening. So I am just hanging in there and this will pass, right
Li Cunxin talked a lot about the ballet Red Detachment of Woman, Chinese Ballet. This ballet is currently being put on by Beijing Ballet. This ballet originated during Mao's reign. Li Cunxin talked a lot about this ballet. It was a feature on the CBS Evening News on Jan 30th.
It also highlighted to me how little I know about Chinese History especially recent history. It seemed very ironic that I was reading this during the Chinese President Hu Jintao visit to the White House. I also read this during when the Tiger Mom article came out. Li talks about his mother and his family's high expectations. He had a very meager start in life. His parents were peasants during Mao's reign It was a really fascinating read and more than just about ballet. It really tells about his journey and pursuit of excellence. Li Cunxin had big dreams and really worked hard to make those dreams happen.

Family Fun Owl. The Diva liked this one. It is the easiest one to cut out. Here are some of her Owls.
Kids and Glitter OWL - This is the one I ended up going with for Chuckles school Valentine's.
It is a lot of cutting so I helped Chuckles with that. I had the foamies from last year. They are from the dollar store. I did modify the PDF in Photoshop Elements to include the Valentine Sayings. Chuckles has to address 24 of these Valentine's. I'm all about simple or somewhat simple.

Just wanted to spread some linky love.
Surviving a Snow Day(funny parenting tips) from Dawn Meehan. Since most of the country is paralyzed with snow or ice. This is a good funny read.
Ground Hog's Replay conversation with the Polyester Princess from Last Year. Just because it is funny. By the way the Groundhog didn't see his shadow so spring is on the way. I know I am a day late but that is par for the course.
I am really enjoying the Children's Book of the Day Almanac. Sometimes, I get in a reading rut with my kids. This is a really great site.
Did anyone else see the previews for RISE. They were showing previews of this movie commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the 1961 US World Figuring Skating Team perishing in a plane crash on the way to Worlds'. It also documents the growth of the sport since 1961. It looks really fascinating and they are having a one day showing on Feb 17th. Unfortunately, there is no theatre near me that is showing it. This would be a good movie to go with your girlfriends and do the whole girl nite out thing.
