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?
