Tweet! Tweet! March 2011

I have no idea why this post is a long run on sentence. I've been blogging for 6 years, and am as clueless as always...... I'm not sure if Twitter is going to keep all my tweets forever and ever. Because they are often little snippets about my very glamorous and exciting daily life (and aren't good enough stories to make a blog post), I will preserve them on this blog monthly. Behold! March 2011 I have a bug bite just below my right eyebrow. It's swollen and looks like I took a left hook. I'm really not as tough as I look. 30 Mar RT @ If you're the smartest person in the room, your organization is dumb. Yes! RT @ Yoga makes everything better. 29 Mar » RT @ A lot of people are asking how I can tweet with no access to a computer or fingers. Ever heard of an iPhone? Duh. 29 Mar » Brooke too!! Must be a full moon. RT @ Maddie (6) got sent to the Principal's Office for talking and not following directions. Ugh. 28 Mar Maddie (6) got sent to the Principal's Office today for talking and not following directions. Ugh. 28 Mar The Romany Rye sounds like my kinda music. Ever heard them @? 28 Mar I got last minute tix to Cirque du Soleil for Madison. They're floor, front row center. I'm so lucky! 27 Mar Feeling guilty we didn't take Maddie to Cirque du Soleil. She would have loved it. Maybe I'll get tix and take her tomorrow. 26 Mar I'm at Cirque Du Soleil: Dralion with @. We left the kids at home because we're mean parents like that. 26 Mar Brooke (4) finishes her dinner, gets up and says, "toots and farts!" Walks away as if that was a replacement for "thanks for dinner!" 25 Mar I work hard on this! RT @ Not "remembering" a person's name after you hear it is not a memory problem, it is a listening problem. 25 Mar Maddie's so excited about her kindergarten field trip to the zoo, she woke up a 3:30am and got dressed.
