Friday? Really?

Friday What Not

I’ve checked the calendar twice today to make sure that it is, indeed, Friday and I believe it is. This week has been a little crazy and now The Girl is texting me from school telling me she is about to toss her cookies. She has Winter Formal tonight so I told her to eat some crackers and I am hoping for the best.

Plus, I have my leader Christmas party tonight AND it’s opening night for The Cat’s Meow, another show The Teen and his theater group are doing. We are seeing the show tomorrow but there seems to be a lot going on today and I am just dumping it out here to get it out of my head.

You ever have days like this? I often feel that the real estate inside my head is full and occupied and that there’s no room at the inn.

If I don’t laugh I’ll go crazy so I’d like to highlight some funny things that happened recently:

  • I was talking to The Hub about how I need to find an Ugly Christmas sweater for two events this month and this is what he says, “Why don’t you just choose one from your closet?” Um, I don’t own any ugly Christmas sweaters.
  • The Girl was being a real pill one evening but looking exceptionally stylish. She stood in front of the mirror, admiring her reflection and said, “Yep. I’m ready for Vo-Goo.” I calmly turned my head and asked her if she meant “Vogue” and of course, she realized at that moment that she’s been saying it wrong all along. I took a little pleasure in that.
  • I never listen to music while working. I can’t think when I do but for whatever reason I put the ear pods in one morning and sang a few versus of said song only to realize that I am now in cube city and that everyone could hear me. Singing “Get Ur Freak On” is an interesting song choice for anyone.
  • The other day I went out to the garage to put stuff away. Came in, watched some TV, did some other stuff too. Then The Hub went into the garage and found the Otter Pup out there.  Apparently she followed me out and I left her out there. She didn’t make a peep while she was out there but when he saw her there, in the dark, she came in, stopped at my feet, stared daggers at me and then ignored me for the rest of the night.  She threw me some serious shade.

That’s all I have for now. Have a wonderful Friday! What are you doing this weekend?

  1. Here’s hoping the Girl feels better! SO glad you caught “Vo-goo” now…before she’s 22 with a YouTube channel. lol My colleague in the office next door has a tendency to sing with her headphones on. Not sure if she realized she’s echoing down the hall, but at least we know that means she’s usually having a good day. lol

    1. The Girl texted me two more times about not feeling well but she knows that she can’t attend the dance tonight if she goes home sick so she is getting a Sprite and hanging in there for now.

  2. hahahaha Thanks for sharing these tidbits from your brain! My former dentist used to hum badly along with the radio as he worked on my mouth, and I don’t know if he realized he was doing it ALL the time. It was OK for me, only there for a half-hour every six months, but I felt bad for his hygienist!

  3. It’s hilarious how you were singing in the cube family, and that it was “Get Ur Freak On”! Love that. I do that often where I say things wrong for years, and then someone sets me straight and I can’t help but laugh at myself

  4. Ok…Vo-goo is the best pronunciation ever!

    Your weeks are so full…I hope this week end is peaceful but…this is just not a calm time of year…

    I once locked Lucy in the garage for hours…then we worried because it was so cold and we thought she ate anti freeze!

    Have a great weekend!

    1. I worried a little about the poison traps we have out there but she is such a good dog. She never gets into anything except The Girl’s lip gloss. She has a thing for gloss.

  5. Oh my god, I love that you took pleasure in putting The Girl into place! I don’t feel so bad about the times I’ve done that now!

  6. Well, after yesterday and the day before, working at our library’s book sale, I’m just chilling today, probably not reading, and…oh…yeah, drinking?

    How did The Girl make out at her Winter Formal? Hoping she didn’t toss her cookies on the dance floor.

  7. Children are so wonderful and so awful. Mostly at the same time. It’s the truth. If no one else will say it, I will.

  8. I giggled helplessly about “Vo-goo”. Bless her heart. I had a friend who thought all the words like that pronounced the silent “ue”. Antiqyoo. Vogyoo. It was so charming I wanted to not correct her. (But I did, because if it were me, I’d want to be corrected.)

  9. LOL! Vo-Goo. That’s one for the family annals.

    I have been known to toss out a few verses of highly inappropriate songs at work. It’s all good.

    BTW, can I just say we were meant to be besties if you are singing Missy aloud at work?!?
