Not counting last night's post about my sock breakdown, I haven't been on much lately. I have a lot of thoughts rolling around in my mind, but I just can't seem to get any of them to come together into a coherent paragraph or two. So, I figured I should just tell you what is going on in this semi-sane head of mine.
Here we go...
First of all, my house is totally ready for Halloween. I didn't even have to get the decorations out. My house is just such a disaster that it looks like the aftermath of a horror movie. I would love to tell you that I care enough to do something about it... Unfortunately, I can't do that at this point in time. It's not that it is filthy in here, just messy. There IS a difference, you know. (It's not like I have mystery rocks rolling around anymore.) Alas, I have company coming next weekend and I just don't think they will appreciate my creative perception of scary decor.
Speaking of company coming... I am so happy that my cousin and her friend are coming from New York to visit!!! And, as if that weren't enough glee for one weekend, the Zaz and the Pop are coming, too!!! It's enough to make my head explode with happiness! Donuts and beer for breakfast anyone?
My dear friend RB and I had a fantastic conversation about kids going off to school. His daughter, Raven, started Kindergarten this year, as did my Luigi. As a seasoned mom, let's just say our perceptions about leaving kiddos at the door of the school were a little bit different. My dear RB, I hope to get to that story soon!
Part of the reason I haven't been writing much lately is because... Wait for it... I got a job!!! What? I know. Like I don't already have enough on my plate, right? But, it is perfect. I will be doing office work 5 hours a week, while Peach is in preschool, for a friend's business. I must say, getting back into the working world has me a little bit nervous. I mean, when I went to the school to make copies for Mario's teacher last week, I just about had an anxiety attack over the copy machine. Have you seen those things lately? Sheesh! Nine years out of the work force and copy machines can suddenly do everything! So, I will be doing some office work and learning about all these crazy new-fangled gadgets that people now use in their offices. Who knows, maybe I'll even learn to use one of those Internets things. And, every girl needs some extra cash for manis and Starbucks, right?
Our new Koopa Troopa is weird. He is the sweetest kitty, but he has a wild streak. Every morning he goes into Luigi's room and licks his cars. I'm not even joking here. KT3 (I just can't replace KT1, so we shall just keep the numbers going) goes into Luigi's room every morning and spends 10 minutes licking matchbox cars. OooooKaaaayyyy... He also eats paper. Oh, and he stalks KT2. KT2 can be sleeping on the bed, just minding her own kitty business, when all of a sudden, she gets pounced on as though she were a tiger's prey. I'm pretty sure she doesn't appreciate it very much.
The Goombas are all getting into music. But, not just any music. They love the teeny-bopper, bouncy, peppy, Disney stuff. Ugh. Ok, so, I say ugh, but what I really mean is, "I will secretly act like I don't like it, but that stuff is so damn catchy that I can't stop singing it over and over in my head and I find myself playing it on the iPod even when the Goombas aren't with me." ...sigh... My only complaint is that I have to wonder who is writing these songs? Taylor Swift for example. Love her. Great music. But, in "Love Story," does she not realize that she is calling herself a whore? "He was Romeo I was the Scarlet Letter..." Has she read the Scarlet Letter? Because, it isn't exactly a term I would use for myself. I'm just saying... Also, Selena Gomez sings about her man being "a centerfold, lyrical, beautiful..." What on earth does a teenager know about centerfolds? Really? Still, I listen and sing right along with the Goombas, because apparently that is what a mama does.
Is there anything else? Not really that I can think of. I mean, there is a ton more, but as I said before, a lot of it doesn't come together as a cohesive thought. So, for now, I will sign off and say Happy Thursday! I'm going to enjoy the lovely, cool, fall weather that has finally arrived.
