Thanks to Mrs.4444, I have a topic for Fridays. If you are interested in having at least one day where you know what you are going to post, join in. It’s as simple as that. And if you don’t feel like heading over there, my newest post is up here.
***Owen fell last evening and hit the wall, thrusting his bottom teeth through his lip. Gross. Blood everywhere. Then this morning he tripped over a piece of fluff on the floor and did it again. More blood (I just got done telling Mr. Lady that my kids have no genetic trait of mine, but I lied; Owen is clumsy like me. Lucky kid.), more tears, but also this follows right along the lines of summer coming. Someone always gets hurt this time of year. Owen looks like he went three rounds with Evander Holyfield (who, incidentally, is one hot black man).
***For the record, Mother’s Day sucks. It might be better this year because the kids are older, but I don’t know. It is a sad day for me. Mostly I just hold my breath and keep busy and wait for it to be over. At least I ended up having an excellent birthday; that helps a lot.
***I see a lot of school buses on my way to work. Better than half of the drivers I have seen this week have been talking on their cell phones while driving, regardless of the fact that it is against policy as well as being terrible dangerous. The School District office is getting weary of me calling to complain. Ask me if I give a shit. Makes me glad that mine are very rarely on a bus now that we have moved.
***When we were at Costco a couple of weeks ago, they were demonstrating some new meatball product thing. I had to walk all through the store with my gag reflex rebelling because meatballs smell like meatloaf which is my personal most horrible food ever. I wonder if next time we go, I can call ahead and make sure they aren’t cooking those things that day?
***There is a dinner get-together thing for the women in AA tonight. They get together once a month before the business meeting and just have a social time. I have never gone, and don’t plan on going tonight. I really don’t like to be in unfamiliar situation like that with people I don’t know well. My goal is to to be brave enough by next month to go. Change is good, right?
***My dad is for sure bringing the PC tomorrow morning, but do you think the phone company got their shit together and hooked up the DSL? Of course not. So the computer is going to be sitting on the table taunting me all weekend long. Isn’t that just the way it is sometimes?
***Amber is late for work this morning and it makes us all nervous because she hasn’t called. Not because she is flaky or anything like that, but because of the health issues with her baby. I hope everything is okay and they just slept in or are having a hard time getting going or just got a flat tire. This is the hard thing about loving people; you worry.
Seems like enough fragments for this day. I hope everyone has a great weekend, especially my wonderful mom friends out there. And oh, I changed my mind about the day sucking, because I think I am going to try to make some wontons with my new press and spend the day in the kitchen. And THAT will be fun. I hope it is nice enough that I can send the kids to the park!
