Well, I can’t seem to get my brain to synthesize a really entertaining and cohesive post this morning, so instead, you’ll get some random ramblings about my life and goings-on. And you’ll like it!
I know that I usually grumble about my kids. Okay, maybe bitch is the more accurate word. Anyways, just to prove that I really do love my kids, I will tell you something good that they have done in the last 24 hours.
- Boy #2 called me at work yesterday to tell me that he had made MY bed without even being asked. (No, my bed wasn‘t made when I went to work, but Boy #3 was still sleeping in it…Get off my back!) He said he wanted to do something nice for me. Boy #1 also took credit for it. I guess it was such a big job that it took two of them to pull it off! 🙂 But nonetheless, it was thoughtful AND involved CLEANING, which honestly NEVER happens!
- Boy #3 went to stay with Grandpa and Grandma yesterday, and last night Grandma called just to tell me how GOOD he was when they went golfing. He followed every direction she gave him and even was a cheerleader for them when they golfed! “Good shot, Papa!” “Good ball, Grandma!” He minded his grandparents just like a little angel. Of course, he did! That’s exactly what he does at home too! 🙂
- Boy #1 listened on the phone when Grandma called last night because he wanted to hear all about Boy #3. He then proceeded to relay the good news about Boy #3’s behavior to Dad. Sometimes my kids really do act like they love each other!
Husband has to take the dog to PetSmart today for a grooming. Not that he needs it or anything! Seriously, it’s embarrassing. He looks like he’s been living on the streets for months. He smells like it too, considering in the past 24 hours I have cleaned up pee and poop from his kennel too many times to count! Do I think Husband will bother to give the dog a bath to remove some of the poop stains or pee stench before dropping him off at PetSmart? Who knows. As long as I’m not the one who has to face the groomers, I guess I don’t care! 🙂
Here are some words I like ( I warned you that this was random!):
quintessential—I feel very smart, or at least British, when I say it.
malarkey—It’s a fun word to say, and a bit gentler than “bullshit.”
snarky—Because I’m always a bit snarky; plus, it rhymes with “malarkey”!
stuff—It’s so simple and wonderfully vague. I can use it for all kinds of “stuff”!
Here are some words I loathe:
cluster—This is all my sister’s fault. She can’t ever use this word because it reminds her of a “cluster of bugs.” *shudder* Now I can’t either!
irregardless—Call me an English major snob, but THIS ISN’T REALLY A WORD!!! It’s redundant and it says the same thing twice.
titillating—It makes me giggle when I read something like “The speaker gave a very titillating lecture about the changing role of fiber-optics in the 21st century.” This word should NEVER be used in anything but a smutty romance novel.
I wish I could just get paid to name companies or products. Or babies. I’d love to have 10 more kids just so I could pore over baby name books and Web sites until I find just the right name. But then I’d probably get all 10 of those kids with the awesome names taken away because I can barely raise the 3 I’ve got…But it COULD be worth the risk…
Speaking of getting paid to do something I love, I wish I could get paid to write WHATEVER I WANT. Yeah, like this blog. It would be nice if someone would pay me to do this. (Any takers? 🙂
I suppose I should get ready to head to work where someone actually DOES pay me. (Sucker!)
I hope you are having a quintessentially cluster-free morning! Irregardless, don’t get all snarky on me…
