Any of you die-hard "You've Got Mail" fans will recognize that quote. It's what Martin and I have been saying back and forth to each other lately whenever commenting on this fabulously fallish weather. So tonight after Anja went to bed, we put in our mutual favorite movie!!! Isn't it the best??? We laughed though, wondering if our kids will think it's totally dated and lame. They won't even get the loud dial-up whenever the characters sign on to the internet. And probably AOL will be extinct by then because it's so rotten and they won't understand that either. But seriously... whoever thought that a 90 minute ad for Starbucks, AOL and Barnes & Noble could make such an incredible Chick Flick!?!? I LOVE IT!!! And it makes me want short hair again too, specifically, exactly like Meg Ryan's.
Anja has stopped showing interest in her solid foods and I'm really afraid that it's because she loves her ear infection medicine so much. She gobbles that stuff down and cries when I put it away. But when I offer her sweet potatoes, carrots or rice cereal, she kind of turns up her nose and looks away, like, "where's the yummy pink stuff?" Great. My 9-month old has a sweet tooth!
Not much else is new. I made tomato tortelloni soup tonight and I was disappointed with how it turned out. The cream curdled and the tortellonis got huge and I accidentally over-cooked them because I stupidly put them on to boil and then went out to sit on the porch swing. I'm really not very smart sometimes.
