Can somebody make this movie?

Back in college, I had a friend who was a pretty good juggler. Sometimes, he would start off with just 2 or 3 objects, and we'd toss more and more in, until eventually he'd have maybe 7 or 8 items going, and then they'd all fall down, except for a few he'd manage to catch before they hit the floor.

If anyone out there has the coordination (it sure ain't me), could you do a "life with D" juggling video? Start with a meter and pump, then add in an apple or something ("eat healthy"), then a sneaker ("exercise"), then a juice box ("you're low"), bottle of ketone strips, wallet, alarm clock, CGMS, whatever. I think it would be a great visual on the juggling we have to do every day, along with a reminder that no one can get it perfect all the time...

If you build it... (nothing to do with D)

This is where I send myself when I'm in desperate need of a "Mommy time-out".

The Castle Room, with elliptical decorated for effect:

Close up of the doors to The Crawlspace of Unfinished Projects (like half-finished afghans, needlepoint, curtains, and shirts. That visible "table" leg is from my great-grandmother's 1931 electric Singer sewing machine, which I still use)

That's Tucker (big gray one) and Sarah (little brown one), in their favorite spot in the house.
