Thirteen Thoughts from InterstellarLass

1. I’m a little frustrated. There are several bl*gs that I’ve tried to post comments on, but for some reason they’re not posting. Grr.

2. I’m glad I’m not the only one with a headband problem. See item #2. I invested in some more metal flex-clips and will have to rely on the good ‘ol scrunchie and then clip back all the shorties and fly-aways.

3. Zed has a band concert next week. He’s very excited about it. I’m excited to see him play with the full ensemble! Note to self: He needs size 3 reeds.

4. Tuesday night he had an Open House. There wasn’t as much ‘stuff’ to see in the rooms, so I was a little bit disappointed. But then there was a student/faculty basketball game and that was exciting to watch. I’m glad Zed and I were able to enjoy it together.

5. For the next two weekends Elle will have soccer and basketball, and Zed will have basketball still. Three games per weekend. I’m building up my cheer reserves.

6. I’ve decided what tattoo I’m going to get, and I’ve decided where I’m going to get it. Now I just have to get up the guts to go do it.

7. When I met Nick, he was solidly anti-tattoo and piercings. Now he’s shaved his head, gotten both ears pierced, and has four tattoos on his ‘list’ that he wants to get. I don’t like two of them and I’m trying to talk him out of getting them.

8. I’m a sloth. I haven’t been to the gym this week. Last night I was all set to go, and then I just had this huge wave of tiredness wash over me and I went home and took a nap instead.

9. Tuesday night Zed decided he had his first facial hair. He has dark toe hair, his legs are starting to look hairier, and a couple of weeks ago he announced that he has ‘hair down there’. And as much as I searched and squinted, I couldn’t make out the mystery ‘facial hair’. I’m not ready for this.

10. But I do hope he hits puberty soon. He really wants to play basketball next year at school, and he needs to grow and put on some muscle to do it. He’s still kind of soft and boy-ish. And the kids playing in the student/faculty game were decidedly not boyish.

11. Elle is growing up every day too. I can still carry her when she falls asleep, but she’s getting better at doing her own hair, and I really see her developing a ‘style’ of her own. I think she’s going to be kind of punk.

12. I’m doing better at getting more sleep. I was in bed last night by 10:30. I didn’t fall asleep till after 11, but I’m making an effort.

13. I had fun remembering and writing about my cars. Won’t you stay a bit longer and read about them and then remember yours?
