Other Things
I've got $15 so far towards my Wii Fit. I'm working with Craig to save household money towards us getting one by doing things like cooking more! The library use is a part of that as will be trying new affordable recipes and basically just doing my best to use what we already have rather than buy new stuff. I'm pretty excited!
Also, I am going to karaoke tonight with Amy! Yay!
I need to ebay some clothes and other fancy things that don't fit so I can reuse the money.

I'm getting a bunch to try from the library, then if there is one I love love love, I'll look for it online.

Ooh, I got to play with the Wii Fit at some friends' house a couple weeks ago. I'm dying to get it, but I can't justify the expense right now. The time is coming for sure, though.

It is going to take me awhile to save up for it, but we are making an effort to live cheap so I can earn it and justify it!

They all sound fun (although having taken pilates classes, I can say without doubt that it is not for me!). You know what, I JUST remembered that a million years ago I ordered a strip aerobics DVD and have never once tried it. I wonder where I put it? But I digress... The WiiFit is awesome and you will love it. It is so much fun!

The WiiFit sounds fun! It will have to wait, but I'm looking forward to the day.

The Crystal Cave and the rest of the Arthur/Merlin series is very good.

Even better is The Mists of Avalon by MArion Zimmer Bradley. That's probably one of my very favorite books and I've read it more than 12 times (it's a big thick book on par with the entire Lord of the Rings triliogy).

I'd also like to recommend Hussein's books: The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns. Both of these books were amazingly powerful stories that pulled me in and never let me go.

Also, there's a book by Anita Diamat called The Red Tent, which I recommend to every woman I know. It's a must read, and speaks volumes to women, spirituality, love, family, friendship and sisterhood.

I LOVED "The Firebrand" and hope you enjoy it as well. There's another Marion Zimmer Bradley book that I'd like to recommend, but I can't remember what it's called. It's based on the legend of Atlantis. Maybe I'll remember.

Cool! I like the idea of reading some one off books rather than just trilogies because they are easier to get from the library without waiting for the "next book".

OK, apparantly it's called "The Fall of Atlantis" (gee, that wasn't so hard). I also wanted to mention that I have all of the Avalon books, so if you want to borrow any of them, you know where to turn.
