10 Random Things for a Friday

Ok. I have 6 minutes left before it isn't Friday anymore. Either that or I have to teleport to the Mountain time zone and hit publish from there. So let's see how fast I can type.

  1. This week at work was a TOTAL drama nightmare. I'd explain. But then someone would find this. And then it would end up places it shouldn't. And then I'd be jobless. But let's just say that if it could happen this week, it did.
  2. BAM was here for a while tonight. He cried when it was time to leave. It kind of made me feel good that he didn't want to leave. Is that awful?
  3. Those of you that know me, can you "hear me" when you read what I write? I actually hear people's voice in my head when I read. And those that I read that I haven't heard in real life I have made up voices for. Hopefully if I ever hear them they'll sound somewhat like what they sound like in my head or I won't know who they are.
  4. I loaned my senior class yearbook to Erin T. sometime around 1991. I'm not sure why. And I don't really care now, but I'd really like to have my yearbook back. I wonder if she is on Facebook. Hold On. I'm going to go check.
  5. Holy Schmoly! She is on Facebook. And she has a blog! It is totally her. Either that or I just sent a really out in left field message to some random stranger. I'll let you know when she writes back.
  6. I partied a little too much in 1991. I did stupid things like let someone borrow my senior year yearbook. And hang out in parks really late at night and have the police tell us to get off of the swings. Come to think of it, I may have partied a little too much for a few years before and after that time too.
  7. I need to find a new water bottle. One that doesn't sweat. I love my metal one but I can't get over the idea that I am drinking out of a metal bottle. And it sweats WAY too much.
  8. ****deleted this one because I decided it was a bad idea to tell the whole world what was written here a minute ago*****
  9. Had to write a bio this week. Something so I could be introduced at a thing. First off, when the heck did I become someone that has to be a) introduced and b) needs a bio? I couldn't write the stupid thing. So I had my mom do it. And she did. Which is yet another reason why I love my mother.
  10. I bought the Babe a red star mylar balloon at the grocery store. We were going after the red, white, and blue little star. But those were only "promotional" for the store's use. I tried to bribe the floral lady that blows up the balloons. But she wouldn't cave.
It is now 12:17. I apparently can't type fast enough. But all of you are asleep and won't read it until sometime next week when you are at work and really bored anyway. (btw Hi Pusher!) So you won't know the difference anyway. So in that case.... HAPPY SATURDAY!! I'm on my way to CR. so if you are reading this and you live in CR or between here and CR, call me. We are all going the Cardboard Boat Regatta on Sunday. Want to come?

10 Random Things for a Friday

This week's 10 for Friday comes from the Babe. I asked her what she wanted me to tell the world about her. This is the first 10.
  1. I love you Mom. I love all of them too.
  2. I have a scratch on my wrist. I don't know where it came from.
  3. My eyes are cute.
  4. My favorite toy is horseys.
  5. I like broccoli.
  6. The TV is dead. "The TV isn't dead Babe." I know. But tell everybody that. We need a new TV.
  7. My favorite movie is Toy Story 2. Is that the red one Mom? Is that the one?
  8. Hold on. I want to call Elvis for a minute.
  9. The word is just a word. "What word Babe?" B, Mom. The word is B. "B like the letter or Bee like the buzzy Bee?' Just B Mom. Geez.
  10. I will not say nothing else. This is silly Mom.
Good thing we got to 10 first.

This was written on Friday. I just forgot to hit publish. oops.

Are You Coming Over?

Who wants to come over and drink wine and sing and dance to Mama Mia? Or Glee. You can pick. But you have to bring wine. Or Vodka. You can pick. I suppose you don't have to dance if you don't want to. You might have plantar fasciitis like I do. Then you won't want to dance. Because it hurts to dance. But you do have to bring wine. Then again you might not enjoy singing. You don't have to sing. You do have to bring wine though. Preferably a really good semi-sweet red. Or Vodka. You can pick. I think I have mixers in the fridge. There might be some snacks in there too. Unless you already ate supper. You might not be hungry. But I'm sure you could go for some wine. Stop and get some will ya?

Ya. Thanks. See you in a bit.

The 10 Random Things That Didn't Get Written on Friday

  1. I had 56 hours of Vacation and Holiday time this last 2 weeks. Which means I have only worked 24 hours in the last 2 weeks. Which COMPLETELY explains why I am so damn far behind. And now I'll work about 30 hours extra this week and probably the same next week to try and get caught up. Which won't happen. So really what was the point of the vacation time?
  2. Some brilliant person put together a cheat sheet for Starbucks. Thank you to them. There are a few drinks I've always wondered about. And now I know what they are!
  3. Sarah is the Babe's favorite "come and play with me" babysitter. The Babe was her first babysitting job nearly 2 years ago. We like Sarah a lot. In fact she is filling in for our daycare one day this week.
  4. I didn't get last Friday's 10 Random Things done because I was driving to Minneapolis. The Babe and Sarah and I visited my aunt and uncle, spent the day at Nickelodeon Universe at the Mall of America, stayed Saturday night in a hotel and swam in the pool, and then went to my cousin's wedding on Sunday.
  5. The wedding was in Como Park. Which I had never been to. It was pretty darn cool! And cold. It was in the low 60's. In June. Who'd have thought?
  6. I have a black eye. Or rather the remnants of a black eye. The Babe head butted me one night last week. I think it was Wednesday. Everybody kept asking, "what happened". I just said, "I have a 3 year old."
  7. Got an invitation yesterday for a Chamber of Commerce networking event at the indoor water park. I can't figure out from the invitation if you are supposed to bring your swimsuit or not. The whole thing is really odd.
  8. BAM has no hair. We kind of shaved it off. It was supposed to just be short. But he ended up with something like a high and tight. Poor kid. We really should have thought this through better.
  9. I saw a guy with a mullet yesterday. His son also had a mullet. So did the daughter. I think their mom might have gotten carried away with the Flowbee. Can you believe they even still sell that thing?
  10. We posted an ad for an Executive Assistant this week. It went in the paper on Sunday morning. As of 11:00 AM on Tuesday we had 72 resumes. We supposedly live in an area with one of the lowest unemployment rates in the country. I'm not sure what to think about that.
If I can get home at a decent hour tonight I have some more rambling to do. No promises though. In the meantime, Enjoy your week!

From the Mouth of the Babe

Babe, I think you forgot to say please.

No Mom. I didn't forget. I just said it in my other language.

What language is that?

It's the language in my head. I heard me say please there. Can't believe you missed it.

10 Random Things for a Friday

  1. I've done 8 of the 20 things on my list that was going to keep me from going crazy. 40% isn't bad right? We'll go for more over the weekend.
  2. My grandfather is in the last days of his life. He's led a full life. He's led a long life. It still sucks though.
  3. Having two two year olds in the house is quite an experience. I have a new appreciation for the parents of twins. And I wouldn't trade it for anything.
  4. The compressor of our A/C is apparently out. I'm waiting for the HVAC guy to call me back. It's supposed to be 87 degrees today. no fun. no fun at all.
  5. I still haven't unpacked the suitcase from last weekend. It's sitting at the top of the stairs. Where it's been since we got home on Monday. I probably should take care of that today.
  6. The only room in our house that is ready for company is the Babe's room. But she's been gone all week so it hasn't been hard to keep up in there. :)
  7. We watched the new Alice in Wonderland yesterday. What was it about this that everyone loved so much? Cool sets and effects but really nothing more than that. Not up to the hype though.
  8. My crocs have officially died. It's been a long time coming. So I really should have replaced them by now. But I haven't. Mostly because of the lack of disposable income. That seems to be the excuse for everything lately doesn't it.
  9. The dogs get fed 20 times a day. Thanks to little ones that think it is cool to fill up the food bowls. The dogs don't seem to mind.
  10. We've survived this week in one piece. Can't wait for the time when that won't seem so monumental.
Love y'all. Sorry this was so late today. I've been busy trying to figure out how to do some more things on that list. That and waiting for the HVAC guy. And cleaning the house. How does it get so disastered so fast?

June 3rd

Head under water they tell me
To breathe easy for awhile
The breathing gets harder, I know that.

-- Sara Bareilles

Out of context but it rings true.

Today sucks.
