Not completely reformed just yet

A few weeks ago I was talking to my sister and mentioned that I recently started a subscription to National Geographic. (I think it's a hallmark of being a child of the 70s/80s if you grew up with musty old boxes of this magazine lying around - which you then used for every single geography project you ever did. I would like my kids to have that same option, despite the fact that I know they will use the internet for everything instead... sigh. I will at least enjoy them in the meantime - the recent one about the Gulf oil spill is just amazing.) I got a rate of about $15/year and honestly, it's just such an interesting magazine.

Anyway, my sister's response to this was something to this effect: "What is this, a full lifestyle makeover? You're doing triathlons instead of baking and reading National Geographic instead of People. What's next?"

I just wanted to let it be known that on the weekend, we pulled out our Halloween cookie cutters and our orange and black sprinkles, and made up a batch of thematic cookies.

And then I ate one while reading my most recent People, the one with Kate Gosselin on the cover.

New habits may come... but old ones die hard.
