Oh friends! Its Friday!!
Friday, May 22, 2009
But not only that, its a Friday before a long weekend!
Not only that, its a Friday before a long weekend, and The Mister has the entire week off next week!
As if it couldn't get any better than that, this time next week I will be at meh's house, sipping coffee and enjoying time with my friend! Yippee!
I have far too much energy for this early morning...I'm even annoying myself.
Today, I am going to give you some randomness:
First, I was reading The Lettered cottage (a blog I just LOVE to look at) on how the big forks and spoons have made their way back into home decorative style.
Of course, not one to pass up a good fad (not really, I'm probably the least fad-ish person on the earth) I found myself wishing my mom and dad had saved the gigantic fork and spoon they had on our dining room wall for years! I am sure they are long gone. They have always kept up with decorative changes of time.
Second, The Boy has been running a fever since Monday night. Honestly, I think he may have a touch of flu, but he's on the mend. Of course, on Monday evening when I went to take his temperature, our digital thermometer had a dead battery.
Being super concerned about knowing what his fever was reading, but not wanting to run to the drugstore for new batteries, I dug around the depths of the bathroom cupboards and pulled out an old-time, old fashioned, thermometer. Yes, yes, one of those mercury filled ones that are horrible for the environment, and take F-O-R-E-V-E-R to get a temp.
As a matter of fact, The Boy, in his sad, sick state, was not happy that he had to hold this thing under his tongue for an entire four minutes.
Oh the hardships suffered by kids these days.
I told him to buck-up. I then told him he was lucky. When I was a kid the only thermometers were the ones that were administered at the other end. And taking a temperature that way took at least two full hours.
Then, if my fever wasn't over 104.4 degrees, my mother would pat me on the head, tell me it was allergies, and send me off to school.
Of course, I had to walk there in the scorching desert heat.
Through a cacti field.
Having to jump over snakes and scorpions.
All this when I was just a tender-hearted first-grader.
To which he rolled his eyes, since he was not allowed to speak...cold air might ruin the accurate temp I was trying to acquire.
Sometimes being a mom can be so twisted-ly fun.
Speaking of thermometers (and mom, I apologize in advance)...when I was about 14 or 15 years old I broke a mercury thermometer on the living floor on the house we rented on Lurlene Drive. I desperately tried to clean up the mess, but it just kept disappearing into the carpet...It's probably good we moved.
All-righty, moving on. I am so excited because our big box of school supplies is coming today and I am VERY excited! (Could I find away to say excited one more time?)Although I was totally burned out on school last week, I LOVE to look at new books and get all my lesson plans and things organized. So I really want to get this posted and get my shtuff done around here so I can be ready when the package arrives!
Oh, and I have a hairapy appointment today...I going summer-short baby! Pictures to come.
But before you go! What are you doing this holiday weekend?
