Thursday Ten – Spring Break Edition

1. With Spring Break this week, Pumpkin still had daycare but The Princess was home. You know what this means? It means that work-wise it has been a totally unproductive week for me. I scheduled some playdates and squeezed work in here and there, but it just was not the same. I’m ready for school to be back in session.

2. The Princess and I had a pretty cool day today, though. We planned for a few days to have today be “Our Day”. We went out to lunch together, stopped at Target for random things (but of course) and then met some friends at the movie theater to see “Horton Hears a Who”. We had such fun. We ate lots of Skittles and spent a lot of time running through rainy parking lots (what an ugly day weather-wise today). But it’s all good.

3. “Horton Hears a Who”? Fantastic. So so so good. And just beautiful to watch. And remember – “A person’s a person, no matter how small.”

4. I was watching American Idol last night – the Idol Gives Back program. I admit, I liked Chris Daughtry on the show, and I have liked everything I have heard from Daughtry so far… but last night they did that montage with “What About Now” playing, and that is my song of the week. I love it. Love it. Love it. Have I mentioned I like the song kinda sorta?

5. We’re going to a wedding reception this weekend and I’m super excited and I had a cute dress picked out to wear. You know, it’s mid-April, so you think it would be safe to wear a dress with funky straps. Um, not in Michigan. It’s supposed to SNOW. What the hell!? I’m so ready to move (no, not gonna happen, but a gal can dream).

6. Less than a week til tax season is over. Whoooooooooooooooooooooooo! (If you watch “So You Think You Can Dance” – picture that as a Mary Murphy yell).

7. The Princess is learning about animals in school and is pretty mad at hunters, just so you know. She said to me the other day, “Who decided that WE were more important than animals? How are deer not important?” I explained hunting and some theories (Hunting as sport, hunting for food, hunting to prevent deer overpopulation). When I told her that some people say there are too many deer so they don’t have enough food, she looked at me and said, “Mom, they eat grass. There is grass everywhere. People are just being DUMB.” My little tree hugger. Love it.

8. I cannot believe Syesha didn’t get voted off tonight. I’m actually quite bummed. And Kristy Lee wasn’t in the bottom 3? Eeesh. She’s going to be the annoying person that makes it to the top 5. There’s an icky one every year.

9. I’ve been watching “Reality Bites” lately while working out. Love that movie. Generationally, there is so much that just reminds me of 1994 and that time in my life. What a fun trip in the way back machine.

10. Kettle corn is good.

  1. Art the Omnipotent says

    Reality Bites is the same for me. When it came out Farm Wife and I and several other friends went to see it. Quote book in tow. We could quote the thing from beginning to end. Love the movie and love that time in my life.

  2. I was about to tell you wonderful things about Reality Bites & Art, but she beat me to it.

    I only have one thing to add….Ethan Hawke singing Kiss Off. Ahhhhh….

  3. sorry, sarah, I have to comment….
    1. I totally want to meet the Princess. I’m thinking of coming to visit my mom soon and you and the princess will be on the agenda, if ya don’t mind.

    2. So cool that you had your day together. I cannot wait for the twins to be conversational enough for us to hang out for realz.

    5. Dude, I hate Michigan weather. One time this guy said to me that Michigan is only good for one month out of the year. The problem is that you never know which month it will be (amen) and the rest of the months are too cold or too hot. oy, I’m sorry for ya.

    7. Another reason I love the princess. She sounds so friggin smart and very much with higher level thinking. Good for you!

    10. Um, I’m not a big fan of Kettle corn. I just don’t get the ‘sweet’ aspect of popcorn. To me, it is like fruit in savory dishes- it doesn’t belong.
