Things really do come in threes...

The three in my life lately is daisies. Actually, I just learned there is a fourth, so this might not count. Or maybe it just amplifies the whole thing.

Daisy #1. We got a puppy. Two actually, one is Uncle E's, though. The female of the pair is ours and I named her Daisy.

Daisy #2. Scouts. Miss G wanted to do like her big brother who joined Cub Scouts. So we found a Daisy troop for her (that may or may not work out - it's been an unsuccessful venture so far).

Daisy #3. Frick. I can't remember.

Daisy #4. The last name of Uncle E's insurance agent.

Actually there's sort of a fifth, if you count Daisy Duck via our upcoming trip to Disney.

I'm almost small town now...

Not really. I think a part of me will always be a suburban girl, but I'm adjusting to small town, rural living. Mainly thanks to technology. I have high-speed internet access, Direct TV and a cell phone. I'm good. Really, as a stay-at-home mom, not much has changed for me except the place I do things. We still drive around doing errands, although it's farther to get to those places. I still have to do laundry, cook, clean, potty train and all that.

So my fall TV impressions. Pushing Daisies! Yay! I'm so glad my favorite show is back. And How I Met Your Mother! Yay! I'm so glad my favorite not-new-but-new-to-me show is back. Actually, I haven't watched the new season yet since I'm waiting for season three to come out on DVD first, but I'm sure it's awesome.
