Where've I been?

I realized today that I know when I've been neglecting my blog by the following hint: My mom asked me if I was going to update my blog soon. I then realized it has been almost a week since my last post. But then again, how do you top the Great Couch Caper? I decided I'd just go with yet another list ( I am a big list person and Bonehead gives me all kinds of grief about that fact) to fill you in on what I've been up to in the past week.

1. I've been spending a large amount of time trying to figure out why my pinkie toenails grow so much faster than the others.

2. I've been busy reading 58 pages of the book I bought last Saturday. One. Paragraph. At. A. Time.

3. Apparently I've been busy teaching Critter how to shove his binky in MY mouth in order to shut ME up.

4. I attended a hog roast with the best grilled corn I've had all summer.

5. I've been avoiding exercise with a stubbornness usually only reserved for things my husband wants me to do.

6. I've been busy watching the house on the corner get re-sided by people who should have put the power tools away BEFORE cracking open the beer.

7. I've been busy un-clogging the drain I accidentaly filled with dough.

8. I've been busy folding laundry and hoping it puts its self away.

9. I spent some time in Wal-Mart listening to the echo where the juice boxes are supposed to be.

10. I've been busy changing some very unfriendly diapers.

I feel safe here saying that there is a basket of folded clothes in my bedroom that has been there for nearly 2 weeks. Yeah for motivation!

Don't even get me started on how long it's taking me to read some books lately. It will kill your will to try yours!

Fingernails are made of a special kind of hardened skin cell. They are also full of a protein called keratin. They grow from a root that is below your skin at the base of your nail. As new cells are added to the base, your nail is pushed upward toward your fingertip. But by the time you can see your nail, the cells are no longer alive. That’s why it doesn’t hurt when you bite or clip you nails.

Although they are made of the same substance, fingernails grow faster than toenails. Fingernails also grow faster on longer fingers. So the nails on your short little pinky finger are usually the slowest to grow.

Most people value their fingernails when they need to scratch. But fingernails do more than stop an itch. Many scientists think nails help protect the end of our fingers. Fingernails also help us grip and pick up things. In fact, your nails might be helping you pop open a tasty can of your favorite soft drink.
