Thursday Ten: Let the rain fall edition

1. New music in my iPod is Joshua Radin’s “Tomorrow is Gonna Be Better” and the video is below. Also, my iTunes is showing Haddaway’s “What is Love” as “recently added” and I’m PRETTY SURE I didn’t do that.

2. Today is my one year anniversary at my job – they’ve put up with me for a year, and that makes them pretty special. I felt like I should bake my coworkers a cake or something but then I got lazy last night and didn’t. Maybe I’ll high five them all. That is almost as good as cake.

3. Last night, a friend and I went for a long walk. It was nice to talk and walk and decompress and sweat and spend time with friends. When we finished, I grabbed some dinner and she grabbed some frozen yogurt and we chatted for a few minutes before heading our separate ways. We’ll be making that a habit, I think… the getting together weekly. I look forward to it.

4. I overslept yesterday. Weeks of an erratic sleep schedule finally caught up with me. I turned off my alarm at 6:15 and promptly fell right back to sleep until after 7. WHOOOOPS.

5. {This is where I’m not posting about Chick-Fil-A}

6. I took my girls to a wedding on Saturday. A family member (my mom’s cousin’s daughter – what is that to me? Second cousin? Second cousin once removed? Relatives are tricky) got married in a lovely ceremony with super fun reception – all of the little details made me smile, but my favorite things were the little touches that made it fun for my kids. And frankly, my kids were the most awesome dates I could ask for. Even if they drove the dj a little crazy with song requests (and bless him, he played them).

7. I’m gonna have to call around about physical therapy for The Princess’s shoulder. Gymnastics injury. She’s ten.

8. There’s a lot of whining about the “spoiling” of the Olympic coverage with the delay, but I have to say, even knowing the US Women’s team was gonna get that gold didn’t lessen that moment when I saw it on my television. It was still incredibly moving and amazing. People: you just can’t whine about this stuff. These are world events and lots of people are watching. It’s not the plot of a major summer blockbuster – it’s the freaking Olympics. Unclench and deal.

9. Speaking of the Olympics – do you have a favorite event or are you just pretty much over it all?

10. Even though it’s not 100 degrees anymore, I’m so over warm weather. Seventy and sunny, where are you?

  1. It’s been interesting, seeing the complaints from so many people in the US about spoilers on the social networks – perhaps it will finally wake more people up to the fact in the US that they live in one country among many, many others…
