Highlights of My Day (Tuesday 9.27.05)



1) Was aggrevated (like every other morning) to come downstairs and find that Steve had opened every damn window in the house again. Dude, I'm all for fresh air. Really, I am. But NOT at 6:30 in the friggin' morning, when that "fresh air" is a mere 61 degrees. KNOCK IT THE HELL OFF!!!!!!

2) Pathetically gathered up every piece of change I could find, so when Hannah and I went to the grocery store, I could dump it all into one of those change machines and get some cold hard cash.

3) Bought refills for my Glade Plug-Ins and made the momentous decision that I could, indeed, purchase the cinnamon apple scent, which is (as far as I'm concerned), strictly a "fall scent."

4) Was amused/annoyed/worried when I found Hannah sound asleep on the recliner at noon. Why, you ask? Because she was scheduled for her 2-year checkup at 1:00, meaning I'd have to wake her after a pathetic 30-minute nap. Joy.

5) Wondered why every other day of her life, I have to fight with her just to get her to take her nap before 2:00. Little shit...

6) Had a brief moment of panic when Grace claimed she couldn't hear ONE SINGLE BEEP in her left ear when given the hearing test at her 4-year checkup.

7) Figured if she really couldn't hear out of that ear, it would at least explain a lot about why she never seems to listen to me when I tell her not to do something.

8) The doctor said her hearing was fine based on what the nurse had written down while administering it. Huh? Um, OK. If you say so...

9) Was so proud of Grace when she comforted Hannah during her exam, kissing and hugging her and telling her everything would be alright.

10) Laughed when told that one child is in the 95th percentile for her weight and height, and the other is in the 25th for weight, and the 50th for height.

11) Wondered how come I'm not still in the 25th percentile for my weight. [sigh]

12) Watched the first episode of "The Amazing Race: Family Edition." I was pretty into it. It may not suck as much as I originally thought it would.

13) Had a friend offer me her size 4 jeans that are too big for her. First of all, um... bitch. Second of all, a size 4? Hon, I don't know what you were smoking when you met me in person, but whatever it was, apparently causes you to see people at about half the size they actually are.

14) Watched a dude come and chainsaw apart a tree next to our driveway at 9:00 tonight when I called to report that the tree had fallen and the only thing holding it upright was the electrical wires running from the street to our house.

15) Laughed out loud when he didn't know I was watching and he yelled "Yeehaw!" when he cut that final branch and the whole thing fell.

Hey did you notice Kevin and Drew at the hot dog stand? After the 2nd team got their clue I *looked* at them and the lightbulb went off...
LOL at the tree-cutting guy...did he hear you laughing? Glad it didn't snap the line, that woulda sucked.

I have no IDEA what you're talking about in reference to Kevin and Drew. Wanna clue in the clueless one? LOL!

And the dentist will be after Christmas or something. ;)

Alien said...

Oh, and no I don't think he heard me laugh because his chainsaw was still running and so was his bigass diesel truck. LOL!

EE said...

LMAO about the jeans. You have a cute figure! (I swear your friend wasn't smoking anything, lol)

Kevin and Drew were in the first season..i think they were labeled as the faternity brothers. Last night in the family edition they were the Hot dog vendors. The last family to get the clue from them, the son was the only one that acknowledged who they were...he said "you guys were the best" or something like that.

oh and remember i have the polar opposites thing going on here too...Daynah and Juleigha...

Alien said...

Ahhhh... see I didn't watch it the first season. (Possibly the second... I'm not sure. LOL!) So that explains why I had no CLUE who you people were talking about. LOL!
