Would Be Nice I Had Something to Say, Wouldn’t It?

I’m all about random since for the past two mornings, I’ve woken up with the Nyquil hangover – you know – when you don’t get quite enough sleep to wear off the effects of those big blue Nyquil horsepills. Two more hours of sleep this morning, and I probably would have woken up feeling human. However, Pumpkin was up at 6 and so I was.

You know where I’m going with this – I was exhausted, had to get out to the Starbucks drive through for yet ANOTHER Gingerbread Latte. Just so y’all don’t think I’m totally losing my head here – I’m really no fun, this is a nonfat, sugar free gingerbread latte, with no whip. This should ensure that a crane isn’t necessary to tear the roof off my house and lift me out by the new year. Or so I’m hoping.

Tomorrow is the big day: Taking The Princess (along with another mom and her daughter) to the Hannah Montana concert. I know that my kid is so freakin’ excited about this – I also know this could well be the BEST NIGHT EVER of her 5-year old life. But, honestly, the thought of listening to THOUSANDS of screaming kids for hours on end? A bit scary. Because The Princess is prone to being sensitive to loud noises, Hubby picked up some kid-size ear plugs for her at my dad’s recommendation. What these should do is tone the noise down, while still letting her hear “Life’s What You Make It” over the sound of too many other screaming kids (just like her). I may have to shove a few of those plugs in my ears as well.

Then Friday is my day of making about a hundred bazillion cookies for our second annual cookie decorating party to take place this weekend. Last year, we had such a fun time. It was messy, it was completely sugar-buzzed, but man, the kids had a blast. Friday, I’ll be making dough, rolling cookies and baking in preparation for the festivities on Sunday.

Which takes us into Saturday. Saturday I’ll be taking a day trip with my BFF – gonna be a lot of hours in the car (because really, that’s what we do – no one does road trips quite like her – very fond memories of our 1995 Crawfordsville, IN road trip!), and only a few hours at our destination – but that’s alright. She’s already been informed that I must load up on coffee and Chex Mix to remain a happy camper (though she knew that anyway!). I’m really looking forward to getting the “duck out of fodge”, as we say, and spending some time sans kids.

In other news that no one cares about – but I’m telling you anyway because, well, why not? – I got my hair trimmed last night… I had forgotten how much I love the smell of Aveda ShamPure shampoo (have you never smelled it? If you haven’t, you should – it’s very yummy smelling). I decided I must have some again… it’s been awhile since I’ve used it – and now, I’ve been sniffing my hair all day. I’ll blame the Nyquil hangover.

  1. Good luck with the Hannah Montana thing. I don’t envy you in the slightest on that one.

    As for Aveda, ah, those were the days. I love their stuff, and wish I still had the budget to use it. I’ll never forget the Aveda spa back “home” that was my refuge every few weeks, and I’ll never forget what it was like to call the excuse for an Aveda spa here in my new home. I wanted to know if they did bikini waxes, and the guy who answered (who was English challenged, so imagine the following with a unique accent) said, “We do toenails, fingernails, eyebrows, lip waxes, and haircuts.” Oh. I think he meant pedicures, manicures, facial waxing, and haircuts. But who am I to quibble. Needless to say, I miss my Aveda. I’ll just live vicariously through you and imagine I can smell your hair.

  2. I was just telling someone how Aveda shampoo makes my scalp burn. But you’re right it does smell good.

    I have a friend who went to Hannah and said her girls even thought it was too loud. The earplugs were a good decision. I just bought tickets to the Hannah Concert Movie coming in February. Hopefully it won’t be as scream-y. But I would have endured the concert if I could have gotten tickets. Your girl will love it.

  3. I hope you guys are having a lot of fun !


  4. What the heck kind of fun could you have had in Crawfordsville, IN? I grew-up not far from there and drove past there regularly when we lived in IN last year. Really, it’s not that great!!

    I love Aveda products, but like Inkling they aren’t generally in the budget… I actually buy them with my Christmas money!

    I hope you have fun at your Hannah Montana concert… I’ll be thinking about you and laughing! Ha!

  5. Crawfordsville… well. That was my weekend spent visiting a friend, staying at a frat house on the Wabash College campus. I was 18, what can I say?!
