It is almost finished.
I have worked the plan, and every i is dotted and every t crossed. I just needed another week to actually reach the ultimate goal, which was no stress at the last minute. And I cringe to even admit that I don't have my bag packed at this late hour, and we arise at 3:30 in the am. Ouch! That one's gonna hurt. So we're off, and I'm signing out of the blogosphere for a little better than a week. See you back here - same time, same station. Until then, I'll leave you with some total randomness...
- I-pod's chargin' - have fallen in love with John Mayer's Room for Squares; it's old (2001) and about young singles falling in and out of love in the city - so I totally cannot identify with the content, but great music is great music. Anybody lovin' another album by him (or anybody else for that matter) that I might like?
- We had a funny family conversation on Sunday about the fact that Campbell, our 3 year-old, belligerently yells out, "Nobody!" when she gets ticked. She speaks in full sentences, so it's amusingly odd that she yells out this seemingly nonsensical word when she's about to blow a fuse. When she gets sent to her room to have a three year-old fit (anybody feelin' me here?), she screams, "Nobody!" I never really noticed it as a habit until Sunday. It's more like "Nobody" better come in here and mess with me than it is "Nobody" loves me. It's our new favorite family word.
- Carson is always trying to make up jokes. My sister is ten years younger than I am, so I remember it use to get under my skin as a sixteen year-old for her to say the lamest things in an effort to make up a joke. But I think it's pretty cute with Carson; she is so downcast when I tell her one is really not funny (she always asks) and she gets elated when I laugh. It's interesting to watch her try to get the hang of this humor thing. Last night through the bathroom door, she yells, "Knock, knock!" Who's there? "NOBODY!" Which I thought was pretty great!
- If you're new to these parts and totally bored out of your gourd, here are some links to some earlier posts that I most enjoyed writing: Turn on the Music, Crumbs under the Cushions,Numb3ers,Reflection,and Date Night.
Have a great week!
Over and out...
