Am I the only person scatter-brained enough to need to write things on her hand?
The ring you see there is an upgrade. The one I mentioned in #6 here ended up causing my skin to go crazy, so no more $12 rings for me! I got this one for $20 at a gift shop. Much better.
The blue bracelet in the photo is from 40 Days for Life. If you’re in Austin, there’s going to be a great kickoff event on February 17th, with Abby Johnson as the speaker (here’s a flyer with all the details). I’m definitely going to try to make it. Should be a great event.
I didn’t intend to spend so much time talking about a picture of my hand.
Yaya wants to go on Wheel of Fortune. If the phrase-guessing skills she employs while yelling at our television are any indicator, she would be an excellent guest. She actually contacted them but never heard back.
They have NO IDEA what kind of ratings opportunity they’re missing. I can’t tell you exactly what would happen if she were a contestant; I only know that it would end up all over Youtube and be in “Funniest Game Show Moments” collections forever. Guaranteed.
We had another show-and-tell fail at Mother’s Day Out the other day. In the chaos of getting all the kids out the door on a rainy winter morning, I completely forgot that it was my daughter’s turn to bring a show-and-tell item. Long story short, I handed her teacher a cold, wet umbrella and tried to look serious as I said, “She was really excited about bringing this.”
That’s better than the time last year when a friend found me hunched over the grounds outside the school, picking in the dirt. When she asked me what I was doing I explained that I forgot that it was show-and-tell day. Each child was supposed to bring items of a certain color; luckily my son’s color was brown. I asked her if she happened to have a ziplock bag I could use (which she did, in her immaculate, organized minivan), and I threw in the sticks and dead leaves I’d collected to present to my son’s teacher as his show-and-tell items.
I recently downloaded Matt Maher‘s song based on the Litany of the Saints on iTunes (called Litany), and I think I’ve already listened to it 100 times. I love litanies anyway, and Maher’s song is so sweet and soothing. Love it.
I look forward to reading your posts!
