I still think in status updates

I've been home sick for two days.  I just started feeling human again this afternoon, so I thought I'd update my blog.

I may have given up Facebook for Lent, but that doesn't mean status update-worthy things have stopped happening.  Here, in no particular order, are the highlights:

-In kid language, mommy getting in the shower = time to ask mommy to do things for me.
-Instant pudding and cook & serve pudding are NOT the same thing.
-Pillows make good surfboards.
-I can't stand throwing away rotten produce.
-The world needs more films like The Descendants and Dolphin Tale.
-Todd and Ava have a secret handshake.  It's pretty cute.
-Kevin Honeycutt (kevinhoneycutt.org) has renewed my passion for teaching.

I had a running list going.  There were several more, these were the ones that made the final cut.  I realized as I was compiling this post that a lot of what I have to say just isn't that important.  Not so important, at least, that I should have to shush my daughters so I can concentrate on writing a status update.

So that's what I learned so far this Lent: a kind of quiet discipline.  Thinking before I post.  I hope it's a lesson that stays with me even after Lent is over.

Oh, and for those of you that are having withdrawal symptoms from not seeing pictures of the girls, here's one from a bridal shower we were at last Saturday.
