this is just a figment of your imagination. Because God knows I have about 1,000 more important things to do than blog during my lunch hour. Like order the boys school lunches for November, or call the doctor. I'll get to those eventually, though. For now, time for you, some Random Thoughts, and Stacy (who should just declare Tuesday her day officially!)
-> We have officially survived many plagues at our house this month. EVERYONE had something. It was less than pleasant, but somehow we did not miss a single event. (Though we did bring an absolutely miserable little o to a birthday party this weekend. What? Like you've never done it? He wasn't contagious, for God's sake.)
-> When you call the gas company and tell them that you smell gas sometimes by your backdoor, they declare a "gas emergency" and rush to your house with the fire department. Then they yell at you for not calling them last Fall when you first smelled it, even if you don't smell it all the time. Don't ask me how I know this. Just call them when you smell gas. Trust me.
-> My kids think their vitamins are treats. It's hysterical. They beg to get a gummy "treat" every morning and afternoon. I'm screwed when they figure this whole thing out, aren't I?
-> This is what I parked next to this morning:
-> LG has begun to swipe my phone and play angry birds. He's better than I am. Sunday I was singing the Veggie Tales song (because I can't get it out of my head). He corrected me on the words. When we watched later in the afternoon he said, "See, Mama, I was right. They say squash, not cucumber, in the song". I'm not sure whether or not I like this trend. Three is a little too young for children to outgrow their parents.
-> Top Three things I Hate About the Cold Weather:
1. Tangled laundry. With short sleeves and shorts, the laundry is easy. Now that we have long sleeves and pants every thing gets tangled in the wash as it spins around, and you have to pull it all out carefully lest you stretch out and arm or a stocking leg. Blah. What a pain.
2. Having to step on the cold bathroom floor in the morning. You can keep the bathroom lights as dim as you want, but the minute you hit that cold tile floor you are AWAKE. again, blah.
3. Factoring in an extra 7-8 minutes to get out the door. In the warm weather it's "Get your sandals on, we're leaving." Find sandals, put on, leave. In the cold weather it's "Get on your shoes and coats, we're leaving. What do you mean you can't find your socks? Why did you take them off? Why are you wearing his fleece? Don't put your socks on your hands!" Grumble, grumble, grumble.
-> I am loving Christina Ricci in Pan Am. I wasn't sure I'd like it, but yup, I do. Definitely one of my favorite new shows.
-> Little o has discovered how to play the blond card. When he wants to, he'll completely ignore what you've asked him to do and simply smile sweetly and bat his eye lashes until you do it for him. I've asked the teachers at school and they've fallen victim to it, too. If he starts to flip his hair and giggle, it's all over.
Ok, I really need to go do stuff now. Have a good week!
