Cholesterol Results & Other News

185...I'm told that anything below 200 is good. Yay for oatmeal!

For you family types who might be reading this, I'm headed to Baton Rouge next Friday (Aug 4) for a visit with Mom, Derek, and anyone else who might want to see my kids. John will be working on teacher inservice--school starts the next week--so it will be just me and the kids in our new van, taking it for its first roadtrip. Hurrah for the video system!

Are you a mother of youngsters living in the Dallas area? You might be interested in some last minute activities--FREE--for the kids. AMC Theaters across town are offering free kid movies on Wednesday mornings, 10:30. Today it was Shrek 2 (we skipped it). Last week I took the boys and met some friends to see Ice Age. Next Wed. it's A Shark's Tale, and on the final Wed of the summer (8/9) they are playing Madagascar. Adults and children welcome. Something fun to do on a hot summer day. Get tickets early or just walk up to the booth that morning.
