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?

Friday: What Not

Friday What Not

This entire week flew by in an instant! I took Monday and Tuesday off to work on The Girl’s room. I finished all of the components late Tuesday but man it wiped me out! I just need to put the headboard up and then I will share pics.

On Wednesday, since it was The Girl’s birthday and we were nursing some wounds over the cast list for Peter Pan (take a guess) we went out for a nice dinner but man, I was dying. I ate some canned tuna for lunch and had a horrible allergic reaction! My lymph nodes are still swollen. I may need to carry around an EpiPen from here on out because the reaction hit me incredibly fast.

Needless to say, I’ve been a little bit of a mess. BUT, I’ve been reading Salem’s Lot and Neverwhere and just need to get to The Quick in order to keep all my read-along commitments on the up and up.

Speaking of Stephen King, book 3 of the Mr. Mercedes series was announced yesterday.  You can read a little bit about it, here.  I love the cover.

End of Watch

This weekend, I will be spending a good chunk of Saturday trying to find housing for my mother and sister. It’s a long story but since my father’s death, they’ve not been able to make ends meet and the cost of living in the immediate Los Angeles area is just too high. It’s been stressing me out. There are lots of complicated details that make this a very sticky situation but I am praying for a miracle.

At some point this weekend, I also have to sit down with The Teen to plan the Theatre Halloween party he is having at our house. I love a good party but it does take planning and right now he is flying by the seat of his pants.

Anyway, I just wanted to pop-in since I haven’t been around much this week. It’s still hot here!! Not in the mood to decorate for Halloween but I suppose I will have to at some point.

Have you decorated yet?
