(but then aren't I ALWAYS random?)

1. I went to the dentist today for a cleaning. I think it's been a couple of years.
Still, she said my teeth were great. I think she forgot to give me flouride (oopss!) Yeay for me!

2. It's finally autumn, I think. We had to close the front door last night... too chilly for me!
(yes, we have a security door on it!) Mark was ready for the lovely cool air... Sorry dear!

3. Sleepwalking - Jessica came out while we were watching tv the other night -asked if we'd called for her.. Um, no?! In the morning I found her top sheet and blanket on the kitchen table, and she had a smaller blanket on top of her, trying to keep warm. Weird.

4. Sleeptalking -well, since I'm on the topic... do you do it? Mark tries to talk to me when I am really sleepy, and sometimes he gets lovely responses. He always teases me saying "fuzzy wallpaper" - something I said a long time ago.

5. "I'm shrinking" (a la "I'm melting" - the wicked witch.) - As of Wednesday, I have lost
40 stinking pounds! Yahoo!!

You rock! 40 lbs! And to be honest, you looked great when we saw you in August!

My folks told me I walked in my sleep once, entering their bedroom and asking if I could play. (No, this wasn't last month.)

I had a roommate one summer who fished in his sleep, and would talk about the little ones "biting his toes off." At the girls' house, one young lady was heard to say, "I love you, Batman."

If it's autumn in the Valley of the Sun, it must be safe to go outdoors now!

Forty pounds!?!? AWESOME!

Someone I know very well used to sleepwalk. Very unfortunate story about his brother's Sunday shoes and sleepwalking when he needed to use the bathroom. Same person also talks in his sleep, although not as much as he used to. Spoke in gibberish one night and when I asked what he said, his response was, "That's Chinese for 'I fell out of bed.'" He was still asleep when he said that.

Enjoy autumn. We've suddenly entered winter.

Nice job going to the dentist. We really need to go, but it always seems to get pushed to the back burner.

And way to go on the 40 lbs! That is totally awesome! And you are looking great! Jon has been losing some weight too, but not quite 40 lbs...not yet at least!

And yes, the peeps were totally for the Chapmans!

Congrats on the 40 pounds. That is awesome!!!

I do not sleepwalk, maybe sleeptalk. Just not all of the time.

I think I know what you mean about closing the front door. I love having my main door open, and we have a full-length window storm door. I love being able to see. And there is something dark and dreary about having to close the door for the winter. The windows just don't cut it.

At least we have French doors that are left uncovered. I love the light, I love looking outside.

Congratulations on the 40 lbs. That is really awesome. I am proud of you! You look great! How is the aftermath of the surgery? Going as hoped?

Loved your "randoms." Especially the kitchen table snoozer and the 40 pounds lost! Hooray indeed.
