Missy tagged me with this a couple days ago and since I have about 3 million years of bad luck for never passing on forwards and returning them to the sender, I thought I'd go ahead and do it.
1. Pick up the nearest book (at least 123 pages)
2. Turn to page 123
3. Find the 5th sentence
4. Post the 5th sentence on your blog
5. Tag 5 people

I had three books sitting all together, so I did all three of them. In each book, I wanted to cheat because the lines surrounding the tagged ones were much more interesting.

Motherhood Made a Man Out of Me:
It would have been ridiculous to build another one just for Dicky.

She's talking about garden boxes, and decides to make cookies instead. Hilarious book.

The Dog Walker:
Hell, she didn’t understand odds.
Honestly, I've already forgotten the context, but I really enjoyed the book about a voyeristic dog walker, and the man she doesn't know she's in love with.

I thought it must have been a mistake and they’d forgotten about me, so I hung up and called again.

In a book about the competitions that exist in motherhood, a mother is trying to get her daughter into the "right" preschool.

Anyway, thems are my books, which I have to limit myself on because I find myself reading instead of taking care of my children, and Addie likes to eat whatever I'm holding.

I tag Ashley, Lindsay, Becca, Sandy and Sarah.

I just did a "tag" on my blog, so I don't think anyone would be amused if I did it again so soon, but I'll post my sentence here. I actually had to look around for a book, sadly I haven't read much besides my scriptures lately. The first one I found was "First Field Guide: Fishes", which Josh checked out from the library last week. Pg 123 sentence 5 (talking about a Jolthead Porgy fish): "Habitat: Sand and coral ocean bottoms to depths of 660'" Yours sound much more entertaining:)

Hey Ruthie, I just recommended the Healthy sleep habits to my cousin for her 9 month old. Thank you again for the recommendation, its helping others exponentially.

O.K., so it might take me a while to get my tag done, but I have been meaning to leave you a comment for a while. A month ago we had most of the trees in our backyard chopped down too...for the same reason. I was so mad at them. I love my trees, I still have the big ones by my house, but the ones further out are gone. Our lives mirror eachother so much sometimes! I love ya and I'll call you sometime this week.
