Thursday Thirteen, VI

Filed under: Uncategorized — by InterstellarLass @ 8:52 am

Thirteen things on my mind today:

1) Today is my mom’s birthday! Happy Birthday Mom!

2) Nick is wonderful.

3) Elle had soccer pictures on Tuesday. She was adorable. But damn! Pictures are expensive!

4) Zed woke up on Tuesday morning and did some very strange things. He got out of bed the first time I asked him. He got dressed without me having to tell him once, much less the normal three times. He fed the dogs without me reminding him. Then, without asking, me telling or any other form of parent-child or child-parent communication, he proceeded to unload the dishwasher, reloaded the dishwasher, then asked if he could vaccum. I suggested instead of vaccuming, he could clean his bathroom. Which he did. Without arguing.

5) Later I came to find out that the reason Zed did all of those wonderful things was to see if I would give him a dollar so that he could pay off a bet he lost at school. I told him if he was going to be betting guys money over stupid things like making play-doh balls stick to the gym ceiling, he could pay them out of his own piggy bank.

6) My NaNoWriMo thing isn’t going as well as I would like. I’m already kind of stuck. I think I’m trying to make it too good. I just need to get to the goal of getting the 50,000 words out, then go back and edit later.

7) Nick is going to meet my mom and my sisters and brother at dinner tonight. He’s actually excited about this. I know he’s going to do great. I mean, my grandmother liked him immediately!

8) Sunday I’m running The Half. I’ll get another medal to add to my collection. My three medals have been lonely since April.

9) Just 24 hours and counting now.

10) I still need to post my photos from San Francisco! There are so many!

11) I’m 7-0-1 in my fantasy football league. First place baby! Too bad it’s just for bragging rights and not money.

12) I did better in my pick ’em league this week. I only lost 3 games and I was in a 3-way tie for first going into Monday night. Except we all had Pittsburg winning. Both teams just didn’t score enough points for me to win the tie-breaker this week.

13) I need coffee.
