Random Thoughts Thursday

I cannot wait for school to be out. That extra 1/2 hour of sleep will be awesome. Not to mention that I often feel like my life revolves around 3:45 pm. Waiting for her to get home and then go from there.

I dreamt(dreamed?) of spiders 2 nights ago and of scrapbooking last night. Both were terrifying.

The Raccoons seem to be alternating between ours and the neighbors garbage's. Last night was their turn.

We have been invited to 7 graduation Open Houses. 3 on my side, 3 on Jason's and then our next door neighbors. I am pretty sure I didn't even go to 7 open houses the year I graduated.

In the past couple days I have learned some new Grady words. "Ucha" is Ketchup and "Anka" is spanking. And that's not naughty spankings. In our house we have something called "rumble spankins" which is just chasing around the house and swatting bottoms in a playful way. OK, that sound weird, but its not. Just pure silliness.

Its 11am and I and I still have on cupcake pj pants. Kelly will be here in 20 minutes(edit-its now 12:30 and I am still sportin' the cupcakes). In my defense, I have brushed my teeth, cleaned the house, loaded the dishwasher and dressed the kids for the day.

Teagen slept on Summer's bunk last night and no one knows how she got down.

Jason took it upon himself to give Grady his 1st clipper haircut over the weekend. I admit that its better than it hanging in his face but its terribly uneven and the kid has a million cowlicks. I think I need to take him in to get it fixed. Sorry Jay.

All the mirrors at work are telling me I need new clothes. and also that I should cut about 700 calories a day. And get on the treadmill. And wear more makeup. Hey ,I'm just happy the mirrors haven't mentioned Botox.

Jason rocked out the yard this weekend. Weeded and spread nearly 20 bags of mulch. Split plants. worked hard. Love you.

I washed and dried a tube of lipstick with a load of my clothes. It only got on my shabby wheatland hoodie and my Jimmy Buffett tee. I think the universe is telling to stop wearing these things. I am certain Stacy & Clinton would.

Best kept secret- Apparently the DMV in Grand Haven is awesome. Apple Ave., horrific. Jason got a tip to check out Grand Haven's because there is never a line and they even have flat-screen TVs. He waited at Apple last week for almost 2 hours. Yesterday in GH-walked right up to a nice(what?) person!

and 1 more...

I just left the bathroom with Teagen(she requires a friend) and this is what she tells me," Ok, Mama, I gotta go poo-poos and pee-pees. Alright, Poo-poos leave my body, CHECK. Pee-pees out my body, CHECK. Mama, I gotta keep a list!"
How do you respond to that?

Love the last one. I can totally relate to "bathroom" talk. When we are in public and Ryan is using the potty, I just PRAY nobody is in the next stall. We have some really interesting conversations!!!
Love your thoughts!!

I love reading your blog. I know I can count on you to make me laugh on any given day...whether you wrote something that was actually funny or that I could actually relate to what had happened at your homestead. I love the idea of a list for Teagen...a girl after my own heart. I am the Queen of lists!! I even make lists to remind myself to make lists!
