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?

  1. Happy Thursday 13! FYI, for some reason over the past day or two your comments are ending up in my spam folder. I’ve been catching them relatively quickly. It’s odd because it’s never happened with you before.

  2. Hey Lass! What does Zed play? I used to play clarinet, though I was terrible. Cool about the tatoo, what are you getting and wear? You are not a sloth for taking a nap. One week off is not going to make a difference. Finally, good for you for getting in bed by 10:30. Since December, I’ve been averaging getting to sleep by 2 am. It’s a problem and I’m trying to work on it too. Happy TT.

  5. I am so not looking forward to puberty. My ten year old is already starting to smell like a teenager! Poor guy.

  6. Great TT – I like the random-y ones best lately. We can be sloths together – this week has been horrendous for gymming here too – dang! and I was off to such a great start in January, grrrrrrrrr. Happy TT!!

  7. Happy Thursday Thirteen! I’ve had problems posting to a few blogs myself, so I understand the frustration.

    I think you and I are in the same boat tattoo-wise. I’ve got piercings so it’s not like I’ve not dealt with that sort of thing before, but I want the art work to be perfect. Y’know what I mean?

  8. What reed instrument does Zed play again? I seem to remember sax…

    Oh, the reeds I’ve bought over the years! I was on a first name basis with every phone clerk at Woodwind/Brasswind. Now Dan buys his own reeds and he plays a very hard reed-5s.

    I did a Thursday Thirteen for the first time today but, ah, ummm, I didn’t link it because I don’t know how…

  10. Hey, I’m here from the special edition of Thursday Thirteen. You were the post above me….HI!

    I remember when I was young and hoping to grow facial hair. Or better yet I wanted chest hair. For some reason I equated chest hair with being adult. I think I was growing facial hair before I sprouted much chest hair. I can understand what Zed is going through.

    My 13 are up.

  12. I think tattoo are seen more bad that they are!! I’ve got one 4 years ago, and it not that bad! I won’t say it doesn’t hurt, but like a little pinch!
    About the boys and growing hair!! I will always remember 3 of my classmates, looking at their chest in middle of english class, trying to count how many they had!! It was funny!!
