Number of fights between Eli and Mia in the car: 960
Number of accidents I've been in from reaching back and dealing with the kids, eating, talking on the cell phone and putting on make up while driving: 0 (thank you! what a miracle!)
Number of minutes spent driving to and from church: 120
Number of minutes spent driving to and from gymnastics: 80
Number of minutes spent driving to and from the gym: 200

It really could have been a worse month! We have a lot to be thankful for with that trusty, safe car. No break-downs, no locking the kids in the car, no losing the actual car. :)

5 Things That Made Me Hapy Today

  1. These songs motivated me at the gym. When I switched to them from the podcast I was listening to, I turned up the speed on the treadmill SEVEN NOTCHES and almost started dancing. "What Goes Around...Comes Around" - Justin Timberlake and "Wait a Minute" - The Pussycat Dolls. P.S. If I ever get a minivan in the near future, I plan on getting a subwoofer and blasting these tunes with the bass booming.
  2. The sweetest Mother's Day Luncheon put on by Eli's class at preschool. What fun to be a mom at times like this.
  3. Eli's face when he saw me and got to escort me to our seats at the luncheon.
  4. Eating cookies that Mia made me in HER preschool class for Mother's Day.
  5. This awesome gadget that lets me listen to all those podcasts in the car.
