I don't do a lot of memes, but I'll do this one.
Here's the rules:
1. Pick up the nearest book.
2. Open to page 123
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five people, and acknowledge who tagged you.
Technically, I'm in the middle of three different books. So...

And this is where I break rule number 5. I don't usually tag people, so if you want to do this meme, consider yourself tagged. If not, no pressure.
I could do this meme today because, I'm in "Mommyland" today. I took a day off of work, kept the kids home from "summer school" and scheduled a few doctor and dentist appointments for the kids. Woo! What fun! Three clowns, three appointments, spread throughout the day... I'm going to pack snacks and 'distractions' for the kids and try to summon up loads of patience (and "patients") in the Externally Flameless Mommyvan. Wish me luck!
*** Updated: Yesterday was everything I thought it would be and more. (Heh)
