Friday Fill-ins

I usually love Fridays, especially payday Fridays like today. But today doesn't feel like Friday. I have been kind of drifting along all week, and today, due to being awake with an upset stomach last night for 2 hours (approx. from 1:45-3:45 AM), I haven't had much "oomph" for anything. There were several things I needed to get done today - did I do them? No. I did one important thing: take Rachael to the doctor for a check on a rash on her leg, which turned out to NOT be a rash, but psoriasis (sp?). And I got to help on the interview team for our new kindergarten teacher at my school and for the teacher who will take MY old job. But after lunch, I lost steam fast. And have accomplished absolutely nothing, except take a nap. Hmmph. On top of all that, Aaron has been clinging to me like glue since he got home Tuesday night. And I understand, I really do. But geez oh Pete - find something to do with yourself, child. I need some breathing room!! Anyway, we are going to see Wall-E in a few minutes, that should shut him up be suitably entertaining.

And did I mention I miss Steven? Um, well, I do. Tons. I spent 17 straight days with him, and now I'm going through withdrawl. He is still in Texas, headed for North Dakota by Monday. Heartbreakingly, there was a load from where he was straight to Louisville, but it didn't pay enough. When will these people notice that the price of diesel is no longer $2 a gallon? Sheesh!

Anyway, it's time for FRIDAY FILL-INS! YAHOO! (I know, you can just FEEL the excitement, can't you?)

1. Oh, I can't wait until I have enough money to buy a new washer and dryer.

2. How much milk we have (or don't have) is the first thing I see when I open my refrigerator.

3. I never leave home without my iPhone (duh!).

4. If I were a condiment, I would be ketchup because I'm basic, but a little tangy, and I go great with fries!

5. Rudeness is really high up on my list of pet peeves.

6. The last thing I thought of before I went to bed was I miss Steven.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I’m looking forward to seeing Wall-E, tomorrow my plans include um, housework? and grocery shopping and Sunday, I want to get organized for the week.

Have a great weekend!

You will LOVE Wall-E!!! A totally excellent film for kids and grownups alike. Pay attention to the credits. Aaron won't get it, but I bet you do!

Too late, Sayre. Aaron had to go to the bathroom and he held it so he could see the end, so needless to say, we raced out of there as soon as the credits began to roll. What did I miss? Although, I'm sure I'll see it again.

My mother gets annoyed at me when I try to spend a lot of time with her too, although I've never understood why, because mothers don't need space! They love their children and want to be with them all the time! Or so I thought.
