Am so unmotivated when it comes to writing right now. Karin is sitting behind me and I said, "Karin, help me write a blog post. What should I write about?"

One guess what her answer was.

It's not a super busy week and work has been EXTRA slow. We are having a mandatory department meeting this week. I suspect some sort of re-org. Urgh. I'm taking Friday off, though, so that will help, haha!

It's hard to come up with things to write about that don't have to do with my weight, my weight loss, my menu plans, things I'm not eating, etc. BORING.

If you want something good to read, go here:

Martin and I started the college application process last night for U of Toronto, just to see what we could find out about what is needed and promptly got bogged down. Also: GAH, so expensive. Just for applying! APPLYING. They should pay YOU to apply, and THEN you pay to go there if you get accepted. Thankfully, you can save and come back later. I suspect it's going to be a save-and-come-back-later several times before he is through. URGH.

Karin just informed me that one of her boobs is smaller than the other. Uh huh, I answered. One of your feet is, too. Now we're getting back to the topic she asked me to write about from the beginning: her! hahaha! She emptied the dishwasher and cleaned off the recycleables from the kitchen counter today when she got home before we did. We were late because Martin and I were at the grocery store and Anders was getting his hair cut. KARIN GOT HER HAIR CUT, TOO. (and it looks very nice, though much the same...). She was going to cook dinner as well, but we foiled her plans by calling Anders from the grocery store and asking him what he wanted to do for dinner and he sent us a list so he could make pasta with crayfish tails and garlic. YUM.

She's laying on the floor behind me, with her feet propped up on the desk, but she moves them every time I try to tickle them. She has very long legs. Last week, she came and had lunch with me at the office, which was the third time in the past couple of months. So nice! We sat next to each other at the table and one of my colleagues made a comment about how much alike we look. We turned to each other with the same expression on our faces: disbelief. Raised eyebrows.

I've never thought that Karin looks much like me, actually. But later, we were looking at my high school senior portrait, and I'll be damned. Flat-iron the hair and stretch it and there she was. Slightly different nose, slightly different chin, but whoa Nelly. Weird. What do you think?

mood: tired
music: Karin talking


Hmm, a similar smile but I see a lot of Anders in her though. I still see a lot of Laura Ingalls in your senior year pic but none of that in Karin's. ;-)

haha! I will never escape Laura!

Two lovely young ladies, that's what I see. There are definite similarities but I leave it to other people to point them out. I never really see the likeness in our own children.

I only ever thought that Martin had my eyes (from my dad's side) BUT also that both my children look very much alike, so it's weird that I don't think Karin looks like me. Hrmmmm..

Karin is so gorgeous...and so is her mother! There is definitely a resemblance! Were you looking up your senior picture because of June? Ha!

Re: From Megsie

Haa! No, Karin had it on her phone for some weird reason and some friends of hers also pointed out the likeness. My senior picture is lame compared with June's co-workers! I have a tree, but I'm not doing anything but standing by it. Lame!


Some of us change as we grow older -I also always saw more Anders in Karin - but these 2 photos sure show your similarities. Love, Lizardmom
