Thursday Ten On Friday Edition

1. I just finished reading “Handle With Care” by Jodi Picoult. If you are a fan of her books, you’ll probably like this one too – though it made me cry more than most. The book is about a family whose daughter has osteogenesis imperfecta (OI – aka brittle bone disease) and reading about the bone breaks – wow…

2. So weird to not have guitar lesson yesterday – my whole day felt a little bit off kilter. It’s alright – I had plenty of work to do instead, but, it’s definitely a part of my routine to have that to look forward to.

3. Music I’m loving – I have loved the few songs I’ve heard from “Slumdog Millionaire”. I still haven’t seen the movie – but love “Jai Ho” and “Latika’s Theme”. Awesome.

4. I almost wrote this post in haiku and realized I didn’t want to work that hard.

5. On Tuesday, I picked up some new shoes for The Princess. When she got home, we realized they didn’t fit and ended up going back to the store to swap them for a bigger size shoe. Shoe shopping with my daughter? Not the most pleasant experience.

6. Pumpkin’s preschool let her visit the four year old room yesterday and she was THRILLED. She didn’t want to leave her big kid friends at the end of the day, and was quick to point out to me repeatedly that SHE is a big kid now too. Makes me smile. I try to let her flex those big kid muscles enough so that she truly feels like she’s able to do more things – even when it comes to pouring her own (red) KoolAid. I let her do it because she’s so proud of herself when she’s done (Besides, she’ll help mop up any spills, though she almost never spills).

7. American Idol the other night – wow, that was a whole lot of Michael Jackson music. Surprised at some of the song choices – and surprised there were so many lesser known songs. I did end up with “PYT” stuck in my head for an hour or so afterward.

8. Currently the sun is shining. It almost doesn’t matter that it’s so cold when I have sunshine coming in my window. Don’t get me wrong, if it were 75 and the sun were shining, I’d love it… but it’s just nice to see a blue sky.

9. How had I not known about “Big Bang Theory” until the other night? I caught most of the show while I was waiting for “How I Met Your Mother”. Very funny.

10. Wheat Thins are not a food group on their own but they totally should be.

  1. I believe that Wheat Thins are a sub-group of the Cheez-its food group. Right next to the Coke Zero group.

  2. The Courteous Chihuahua says

    HA, HA, HA! at #4. That sounds like a lot of work, but now I expect you to do it for some future post!

  3. #1, I LOVE her!

    #4, agreed!

    #9, that show is great! I’ve got my husband hooked on it.

    #10, had them for breakfast today. With dill dip.

  4. Re: #9, glad you’re now enlightened! lol Big Bang Theory is my current absolute favourite show…well, next to 24. I can have two favourites can’t I, since they’re different genres? ; )
