Well, it is Monday...ALREADY. Is it just me, or do the weekends go by faster and faster the older you get? Not that I am getting old. Nope. I still think I am 25. Until I look in the mirror. But, I am still well under 40 and I am staying here. I remember giving my mom a tombstone cake for her 40th birthday. I thought I was SOOOOO funny. Yeah, right. I was hilarious. Man, I don't want my payback for that one.
OK, I am getting ahead of my own random thoughts. That previous one was a bonus. Or a plea to pray for my mother since she has to put up with a daughter like me. I'll let you decide.
Alright. My random thoughts and reflections:
**I am really starting to hate summer for the simple reason that my hair wants to FRIZZ. Yeah, it is real attractive. Outdoor weddings are my worst nightmare.
**We did go to a wedding the other week. Without the kids. (Can I get a "Hallelujah"?) Nurse Boy and I counted it as a date. We ended up sitting at a table where we were considered the "young whipper snappers." (Whatever those are...) Honestly, we would have heard more of the wedding toasts if we had been sitting with all 3 of our kids. Fred and Ethel kept shouting back and forth: "Who is toasting the couple?" "Oh, he must be the bride's father." " What is he saying?" We just smiled while we were forced to listen to their conversation, rather than the emotional toasts honoring the newly married couple.
**Man, it is so much easier to quiet someone down if you can threaten bodily harm just by giving "the look." Not that we would ever do that.
**Speaking of growing old, we took the kids to see the Disney/Pixar movie, UP! Oh. My. Word. I loved that movie. However, I was not prepared to cry as much as I did. The ugly cry was trying to rear it's ugly head several times. It was such a sweet, clean movie. And, it made me think about growing old with Nurse Boy.
**Man, I should have been more patient with Fred and Ethel.
**I have been trying to keep the kids entertained this summer. Do any of you ever feel like it is never enough? The busier our day, the more they seem to expect the next day. I think I need a nanny. Not to mention a maid. Oh, and a cook. It is not easy keeping them all entertained, fed, and in clean clothes.
**We won't even talk about the state of my kitchen or carpets. No, we will not.
**Nurse Boy is taking a summer class and it is keeping him very busy. I am so proud of him. Is it wrong that I am also thrilled it isn't me who is currently in school?
**Since I am not working (outside of the home) or going to school (studying anything above 4th grade level), maybe I should go take care of my kitchen and the carpets.
Then again, maybe I SHOULD go back to school...
