Random Thoughts Wednesday

If you had hung around my house on Monday, you would know why this is a day late.  But then again, it was late last week, too.  Maybe I'm just more of a Random Thoughts Wednesday kind of girl.  Anyhoodle, Stacy takes late entries, so go visit and see what everyone got to before me.

->  Thanks to you reinforcing what I already knew, LG had a tear free swim lesson last night.  I did the drop and dash, and warned PB that if he went anywhere near that pool, I'd roast him on my new grill.  Instead we went and gave little o a bath.  About 20 minutes before the end, I poked my head into the pool.  Eeep, he saw me (damn kid has radar!)  Then he gives me a big grin and WAVES.  Did you hear the angels sing, too?  Not a single tear, he did everything by himself.  Sigh.  Hopefully this is a new leaf.  Keep your fingers crossed.  His teacher actually asked us to sign up for her lesson time next session.

->  The Badger Den is proud (sort of) to present its own rendition of "Cookie Monster":
I have one cuter than this one, but since I repeatedly say his name, I won't put it up here.  Sorry.

->  How is it that when PB is home sick, he can sleep on the couch, watch a little TV and generally ignore everything around him?  And when I stay home sick, I notice how disgusting the bathrooms are (seriously, the kid is "potty trained" but gets easily distracted apparently), so I clean the one I'm using.  Then it's clean, and I don't want to dirty it, so I use another.  I notice it's not the best either, so I clean that one.  I realize I can throw in a load of laundry if all I'm doing is sitting at home, so I do that.  I don't want to have 2 clean bathrooms and not all 3, so I clean that one.  I put away some laundry.  In between I rest a bit.  Wait, what?  Aside from spreading a stomach flu to my co-workers, I should have gone to work.

->  There are 9 days to graduation for PB.  Even his boss is counting at this point. 

->  I'm tired of politics, and it's not even an election year.  Sigh.  Mostly, I'm tired of hearing poor arguments with incorrect facts, that the public just eats up.  Sigh.  Please, don't make an argument if you've only heard a political speech about it.  If all you know about the tax code is your 1040, step off the soap box.  If you don't realize that most tax deductions and tax credits help the middle class, and are phased out for the top money earners, zip it.  By all means, I'm not expert.  But I do know that if it comes out of the mouth of someone looking for my vote, it's probably only a version of the truth.

Back to the quarry before Mr. Slate shows up.

I love listening to the little voices saying "cookie"! It's only when you don't have any and the voices take on a high pitched whine to them, that things start to go awry.

Awwwww - I'd give him a cookie, and I don't even believe in the damn things. That being said, I had to confiscate a bag of gummie bears from The Young One; the next door neighbor "paid" him with them for mowing their lawn. *shakes head*

You know how to tell if a politician is lying? Their lips are moving.
