I've got a penpal you know!!

Alex got her 1st letter today from her new penpal. She is walking around the house saying "I've got a penpal, you know!" LOL She is so excited.

Alex comes out of the bathroom the other day steaming mad. She starts yelling at Dad and I. "How hard is it to change the toilet paper? How come every time I use the bathroom I have to change the roll? It's not hard to change the roll, you know. Even the 6 year old can do it! Geez!"

So then (I assume in protest) she has started putting the empty rolls of toilet paper back in the extra roll holder,lol.

I was watching TV last week and a commercial comes on saying we all have an Olympic athlete in us. Well no wonder I am over weight! How long have I been carry this athlete around? If they are an athlete, why do I need to carry then around? They are fit and in shape, they should be carrying me! So no more diet and exercise (not that I really did) for me! Instead I am focused on getting this free loader out of me! Think about how much weight I will lose when I do that!

Alex wants a few blond streaks in her hair. I think when we go on Monday to get her hair cut I will ask the hairdresser what she thinks. Plus I am going to have her sit under the dryer to see if she can do it. I'd hate to get the colour in her hair and then she refuse!

I found out how to get Alex to clean her room. I told her she needed to clean her room so her friend could sleep over tomorrow night. Well she was gone in a flash! Now the question is, is it wrong of me to pretend someone is sleeping over every few weeks so she will clean her room? Then after I will tell her they canceled? LOL. Now that I think about it, the freak out over them canceling will be worse then the freak out over cleaning her room.
