I have to share this with you. Just last week when I was sick I ran to the grocery store to pick up some meds. I was feeling so dehydrated. I was ready to grab something right off the shelf, crack it open & start gulping it down right then & there. I was focused on the need for something satisfying when I came across this treasure! The green tea looked refreshing & proclaimed health benefits such as "The metabolism-boosting green tea". Excellent health was lacking in my system at the time so it sounded pretty good to me. I then had to pick from the variety of flavors: asian pear, mango, regular. The pear found its way in my hand. So I brought it to the checkout kind of skeptical. Usually when they start messing with things, like green tea, it comes out tasting really artificial. But when I closed the door of my van, ripped off the plastic seal and took my first swig, I didn't stop until the bottle was half way empty. Pure delight. I have been back for more. The only down side, it is a bit pricey. $1.59 to be exact. Thankfully it was on sale 10/$10.00 when I went back to stock up. It was actually enjoyable to have to "push fluids" with this in hand!

And the other cool thing: snapple prints "real facts" on every lid, like "Tsiology is anything written about tea."

You know, I don't think I've ever tried green tea-- I do not like green eggs and ham and tea sort of thing. Maybe I should try it! After all, you and Stephanie did get me to try this weird "granola and yogurt" combination, and that was yummy.

By the way-- I failed to respond to your comment about the exer-saucer. I LOVE IT! My mom got it for me when Olivia was about 4 months. It was one of her favorite awake time activities. AJ is still a little floppy in it, but I think that he'll be in there alot-- it's more interesting than the swing and definately safer than the floor (thanks to big sis). If you are going to break down and buy a big baby gear item-- I would definately recommend this.

Thanks friend! I'll have to look at the funds :) The ol' pack n play broke on us so we'll be needing to replace that sooner than later; I will look into the exersaucer though! I like your baby einstein one! very cute!! when drew saw the picture he said, "HEY---that's on my DVD!"

Looks yummy! I love green tea, but I've never seen this variety - I'll have to keep my eye out for it.

Are you feeling better now?

Oh, I also wanted to say thanks for your comment on "Winter Birds". I have read the others - my favorite is "Some Wildflower in My Heart" and I also really like the first one, "Suncatchers" they both made me cry.

Your right this one is melancholy. I read a very small bit of it several months ago when I purchased it, but didnt' get very far. It was not quite what I was expecting and I was looking for something to cheer me up - plus, Josh and I have read most of her other books out loud to each other, so we decided to wait and read that one together, too. Seems hard to find the time,though!

Find that Pack n play yet?

Hello Erin,
You do not know who I am but I recognized the last name Neiner. My name is Rachel (Reno) Feehan and I attend Trinity Baptist Church in Williston, Vermont and I remember your husband when he came as an intern. I am amazed at the small world we live in.
I just wanted to say "hello". No need to respond, I am not sure that your husband would remember us but we enjoyed his many talents while he served up here. You have a lovely family by the way. I just wanted to introduce myself. Have a wonderful week.
