Thirteen Things in Interstellar Lass’ World

1. Jeffrey Sebelia won Project Runway! I got scared that he wasn’t going to pull it off given the ‘issues’ that whiney, bitter Laura raised, but he did! Go Jeffrey!

2. Uli also had an amazing collection. Her clothes were fantastic. The colors were brilliant. And her dress than turned into a swimsuit really wow’d me.

3. Now I want to learn how to sew too. Actually, I’ve been wanting to learn, but that little thing called time really noses into my daily schedule.

4. Nick is taking Elle to Dad’s Movie Night at the school. He’d been wanting her to clean her room. I told her that if she did, he’d take her to Movie Night. Nick is not looking forward to it from the standpoint of it being an ‘organized function’ at the school.

5. That means Zed and I get a little date night too. It will not be devoted to doing more math! Math-free night!

6. I totally stunk at math in school. I did OK until I got to Geometry. Between Geometry and Algebra II, I cried so much because I just didn’t get it. Then Trig made sense to me.

7. I went to a little HH with a couple of my girlfriends last night. We haven’t seen each other out, without the boys, in quite a while. It was good!

8. Last weekend, Nick and I ran in to some of his friends that he knew back from when he lived in El Paso. We were walking in to the mall, they were walking out. Tomorrow night we’re going to their house for dinner. Their kids are younger, but Elle will be able to play with them. Zed will get his Gameboy just for the night so he has something to do.

9. On Tuesday, I got a flat of pansies delivered that I bought. Yesterday I got notice that bulbs I ordered from Burpee have been shipped. But those are for spring. The pansies are for now. I might have to go get some more though. My beds are in sad, sad shape.

10. My hair is driving me nuts. Growing it out is such a pain. It’s in that ‘too long but still too short to tuck behind your ears ‘ phase. And I can’t pull the whole thing back in a ponytail yet.

11. I need lots of coffee this morning. It’s chilly here. A cold front blew in (hard!) last night and it feels good. Nick and I slept with our bedroom window open. Refreshing!

12. I accidently killed a bird last night. I was driving along and didn’t see it. There was a car behind me so I couldn’t slam on the brakes. I told the bird to “Shoo! Shoo!” but it didn’t take off until it was under my car. I heard the thump. I’ve never run over an animal before. I don’t want to ever do it again.

13. In 24 hours, we will be homeowners! Closing is tomorrow. I feel slightly ill. Buying real estate is a bit of an ordeal. Copies of this and that and oh yeah, this too. Almost done!

  1. I am with you on growing hair out! I have tons of it, and it loves to frizz, so I’ve given up on growing it out!

    Mine’s up too. :o)

  2. I watched it PR! I was so glad he won. Laura was mean! Uli was amazing and they all have great futures.

    I hope you guys have fun on your dates.

    CONGRATS on being a homeowner!

  3. On #9, I’ve started growing a flat of flowers from seed for my flower bed. Some are coming up and it’s really cool to watch.

    My TT is up.

    Congrats on home ownership!

    My TT is up.

  5. Congrats on your closing. It is such a great feeling while at the same time a bit scary. All worth while.

    Have a Happy!

  6. Oooh, I was so Team Anybody-But-Jeffrey. I thought his stuff looked like something Elle and Zed would put togther with a tablecloths and staplers.

    Congrats on the House! I can’t wait to start calling Nick a Homo (home-owner). Mainly because I’m too far away for him to smack. 🙂

  7. That’s interesting that Geometry and Algebra didn’t make sense to you, but Trigonometry did. I didn’t get Algebra at all, but Geometry was a snap! I never got into Trig, because I kept having to repeat Algebra I and II, so I don’t know if I’d like it or not. :-0 I’ve heard a lot of people say stuff like that, though, that the different sorts of math were different for them…

    Congratulations on your new house! 😀

  10. Congratulations with the new house! UGH. I absolutely hated math.

    Comment by racy li — October 19, 2006 @ 11:03 am |Reply

  11. I had the exact same issues with math except that I understood the Algebra and was completely lost with Geometry. But then Geometry made sense after the Algebra. Isn’t that funny how we process those kinds of things.

  12. Good luck with the home purchase! I understand the butterflies. YEAH, JEFFREY! Yes, Uli’s was good, too. I HATED the whining! Was I like that when I was preggers? I’ll have to ask hubby…

    I’ve posted 13 Scenes from My Chaotic Life, today. Enjoy! 😉

  13. Well hope all goes well with your homebuying.

    I work in mortgages, I know all that can go wrong.

  14. Jeffery!?? God dangit it all! I wanted Micheal to win..sigh…he was sweet.

    New house? There’s a guest room just for me right? hehe

  15. Have a great date night tonight! And congrats on becoming a homeowner!

    Comment by Claire — October 19, 2006 @ 1:35 pm |Reply

  16. Hearing that “thump” and becoming homeowners are remarkably similar feelings…

    (congrats! On the house, not on killing Tweety)

  17. I loved it all, algebra, algebra II, geometry, trigonometry. such a geek.

    I think sewing is a useful thing to know even though I hardly ever whip out my machine. I had to BEG my mom to teach me. She can sew just about anything, but sees it as a “poor woman’s job” (from back when she was a poor woman)

    Congratulations on the homeownership! Yeah, you sign your life away, but still.

  18. I hate when I hit animals…I think I’m not ever going to do it, then there’s a squirrel, chipmunk and bird. Geesh!

    I would love to learn to sew…I’m scared of it. Kinda like math.

    Yay for being a homeowner!!!

  19. I did great in Algebra I and II, but horribly in gerometry. 🙂

  20. All the best with the new home!
