It Shouldn't Be This Fun

Tyler has informed that it's time for a blog update. I replied with, "Maybe you should do a post." And his response, "I guess we don't really need one right now." Haha, well, here it is anyway. My lack of posts has been due to a lack of exciting things going on around here. In fact, last week was filled with a bunch of silly, little things that shouldn't be that fun, but they were.
On Thursday a fabulous package arrived, my new toy (pictured below). Cleaning carpets shouldn't be a fun thing, but for some reason I was thrilled when this arrived and spent my entire afternoon shampooing the ridiculously white carpets in our house. Once again, white carpets in a student-family apartment complex? Give me a break! Anyway, they are sparkling clean again. See how beatiful they look? I'm guessing next time they need to be cleaned, I won't be so excited to do it.
On Friday, an even better package arrived. My best friend still lives in Idaho, so we have to find ways to cheer each other up from a distance. Last week I had a particularly bad day and told her I needed her to skip work and spend the afternoon with me, which she obviously couldn't do from so far away. So instead she mailed me a "girly afternoon package" including bright pink nail polish, a cucumber face mask, and a Glamour magazine, which she had already read and written little comments all over for me to read. So I spolied myself for a day and pretended she was there. Again, way more fun than it should be :) Thanks, Lara!

Another big part of my week was reading. Althought I hate reading, I've managed to plow through almost 4 books in the past few weeks, and my house is cleaner than ever. I guess it motivates me when I actually have something good to do with my free time. Maybe I should decide I like reading... maybe I already do.

I started with this book, which was interesting and way different than what I usually read. I actually really liked it. I can't decide if I would recommend it to friends. It would probably depend on the friend. But I'm glad I read it.
The last five days have been devoted to these. I'm still in the middle of Mockingjay, so don't spoil it for me :) And finally, because I know the grandparents are reading this, and I know what they care about seeing. Jackson is still just as cute as ever. He's looking particularly handsome and grown up in his new fall clothing.
