Random Monday

In CategoryRandom Monday



• Good morning, people. Can you believe it’s almost October? I’m kind of at a loss as to where the last 6 months has gone, actually.

• In Your Helpful Government News, a geeky sort called Puking Monkey discovered New York City has been using EZPasses not only in toll lanes, but also just to see where people go in general throughout the city. No big deal. Just tracking your movements. You know. For traffic reasons. Nothing to see here, move along Citizen.

• Here’s an article by a guy who did his daughter’s homework alongside her for a week and it nearly killed him. Very interesting.

• Last night when Jim was trying to navigate behind some furniture to close windows, I told him if he fell and broke his other arm I was just going to shoot him and put him out of his misery. I told him he should look at it as a kindness, like they do for horses. He was not persuaded.

• Big has done two chapters of third grade math, and after learning his Zero Times Tables, proclaimed multiplication the easiest thing ever. Hopefully this attitude lasts another 30 chapters, but I doubt it.

• Happy Monday! Sorry I don’t have more interesting things to talk about. I’ve been doing laundry for 72 straight hours and have only done about half. It’s a laugh riot over here.

    A bit offended you didn’t include the MAJOR news of the week- MIDDENS MADE FROM OLD SWEATERS(spelling intentional so pull your teacher panties out of your crack)! I see how it is. And here I am all dressed and ready to go find us awesome cashmere sweaters to transform-as if by MAGIC-into delightful middens(stuffy nose font).
    Maybe I’ll just keep all the cute ones FOR MYSELF. Unless I find a ladybug sweater. If I find a ladybug sweater I will make Little some middens and THEY WILL BE HER FAVORITES AND SHE WILL NEVER TAKE THEM OFF AND I WILL BE THE FREAKIN’ HERO! HA! Because that’s how I do.

    Oh right. I am trying to convince New Friend of the joys of Making Stuff. Recycled Sweater Mittens is my latest attempt. This is, in fact, a terrific and easy and satisfying project, about which you can read all about on the Pinterest (see the button up at the top on the left?).

    Christmas is coming, people. Everyone loves mittens.

    My husband didn’t do the boys’ laundry yesterday when he did his own, and suddenly today I had three giant loads. I just DID laundry on Saturday, and every day of the week prior, what the hell happened for the kids to generate that much laundry in one day? I don’t know.

    Well, the zero times tables are a bit of a gyp. You’re left thinking math is all easy, and then it gets re-inforced when the ones times tables are introduced. By the time you get up to 12, you feel like throttling someone.

    And yes, I heard about the EZ Pass. I should be shocked and horrified, but I am now complacent. I think everyone else is. SO the kettle is boiling and the frog is dead, I guess. :/
