LAME IS THE COLOR OF MY LIFE

So, I really want to watch the PBS special on the Mormons. I have no explanation. Whatever with me.

Also, I've been thinking of ways to spend some time with my son's first grade class. Some project or activity. I fall back on the cooking thing, cause I like it (though not as much with 20 six year-olds). So I'm thinking pickles. Making pickles is fun, right? And sour is different than sweet. Obviously. Whadda ya think? Am I a nutjob? Maybe so...

One not lame thing! My friend (and former roommate) Tammy is coming into town with her oldest daughter this weekend from Arizona and is making plans to wear jeans and a sweatshirt for no reason. Just cause she can. I'll be seeing her on Sunday. That is super cool. Also, she is famous in huge circles for being the first EVER girlfriend to turn into a fiance at the Diamondbacks Stadium live on the jumbo tron. And there happens to be a Bud Light Real Men of Genius about her (now) husband. Ever heard of "Mr. Stadium Scoreboard Proposal Guy?" Check it. Love it.

Maddy's slumber party is this weekend. I assumed that some of the girls would not be able to make it so I let her invite a big bunch. Looks like they are all coming. I bet they are gonna fight with one another. I'll give odds that one of them wants to go home before the night is out and that at least 3 (including my own) will cry before dawn. Shit. What the hell is wrong with me? My mother would never have let me do this crap and I turned out great. Nearly perfect in every way.

And I'm done with Rape Crisis Counseling Training. Now I get to start. And I'm scared.

OK, that is it for today.

Hey Erica,

My little sister worked on that Mormons show. I want to watch it too, only I keep forgetting (I think you can watch it online too, which is how I did get to see her name come up in the credits!)

Good luck with the counseling. That's a big undertaking!

I made a Blog posting! Looking forward to seeing you and the brood this weekend! And so everyone understands the jeans and sweatshirts thing...the low hasn't dropped below 84 here in AZ for a month or so. The 70s...they are chilly. :)

I'm excited you're coming! Yeah!

I hope the slumber party goes well. What a scary thought.

Erica said...

I know, huh! I'm not wrong to be petrified of a house full of 10 year old girls, right? Holy moly.
Well, that which does not kill us...

As it turns out, I am having fun. I woke with a bright feeling and am looking forward to helping my wonderful daughter to have a lovely evening with friends from all the different areas of her life. Husband is going to help a lot (and has already). This is a good day.
Thanks for the reminder that fun is the point. I'm forgetful sometimes!
