The weather is really strange. After a horribly cold and wet weekend, the last couple of days have been sunny and hot. It was 80 degrees in the house! I wanted to turn on the A/C today, but decided to crack open a few windows and run the ceiling fan.

I spent the day cleaning the entire house: vacuuming, scrubbing the kitchen and baths, doing laundry, and washing all the bed linens in each room. I haven't been as good about keeping the house as neat and tidy as before....I'm slacking off. =P

I had a chance to chat on the phone with some friends today....and I'm totally looking forward to going up and seeing them. I've decided to pack tonight instead of waiting till the very last minute.

Lately I've been inspired to cook and try different recipes. Ashlyn's been really good about playing quietly on her own while I prepare dinner. Tonight I made a creamy of potato and bacon soup, string beans , and grilled garlic pork chops. *pat self on back* It was damn good, too!
Aric and I watched "Just Shoot Me" and the last half of "Weakest Link" (with the flying Elvises) while waiting for "Smallville" to come on. WOO-HOO! =D

Tonight's episode of "Smallville" reminded me of an "X-Files" episode. The boy, Ryan (in Smallville) reminded me of Gibson Praise (in X-Files). They both had the ability to read minds and both were hunted for medical research and experiments. AND right when I shared my thoughts with Aric on the similarity...low and behold....Cigarette Man made an appearance in "Smallville" as a crooked mayor. Eerie!!!
Clark is looking fine (as always)...and I'm slowly developing a big crush on Lex, too! He's just too cool for his own good! hehehehe

Well, I better get packing! Sleep tight, ya'lls!

Looky!...teeth! =D
