Day Fifteen

What She Wore: chocolate brown turtleneck, khaki pants, tennis shoes. I have a wonderful outfit for later: black and white houndshooth skirt, black v-neck sweater, the really cool black retro pumps. Hooray for adult clothes!

Nadine tagged me a few days ago, and somehow that slipped my mind, so today I’m going to ahead and do it. The tag is for me to share eight random facts/habits about myself. My whole life seems random these days, so I don’t think it will be too hard.

Here are eight random things I’m thinking about that have nothing to do with Charlie

  1. My mom is having open-heart surgery at the end of the month. She can’t drive for five weeks after that. Any guesses what I’ll be doing the month of December?
  2. My birthday is next week, and I’m inching dangerously close to thirty–ack!
  3. My husband, who’s a really nice guy, will only buy me a gift if I pick it out and show it to him. I haven’t picked anything out for my birthday, so I guess I’m not getting anything if I don’t get a move on.
  4. Tonight I’m working at a benefit/silent auction at a place called the Savvy Gourmet. I’m glad I’m going to be working because otherwise I’d be eating WAY too much.
  5. Tomorrow I’m going to talk to a group of elementary school teachers about how to identify students with dyslexia, and try to remediate them. It will be nice to be in the school setting for a little bit.
  6. My dad has “hired” me to decorate a condo he’s purchased and wants to rent furnished. Spending someone else’s money on decorating? Sounds like serious fun to me.
  7. I’ve finally started exercising. I’m just walking, but something is better than nothing.
  8. I haven’t done one thing about getting registered for that art class. Better get a move on!

In Charlie related news: the stomach illness continues, and today I had the privilege of delivering a cup of baby poop to the doctor’s office. Say it with me people, “Ewwwwww.”

  1. # 5: Yay! I think it’ll be good for you.
    #6: yay! How much fun is that? I envy you that one…
    and Ewww!

  2. Great list. 30 isn’t as bad as it seems. I turned 30 this past February and I was sure the world would stop spinning on its axis. It didn’t. And it wasn’t a big deal.
    And I’ll definitely agree…ewwww…I have a friend who had to do that same thing a few weeks back. Not fun, I’m sure.
    God bless :)

    Hey, the Vicky’s Secret Christmas catalog is out….pick something from there for your birthday.
    And I didn’t realize you were a November Baby!! No wonder we are so much alike!!

    I hope all goes well with your mother.

    And spend Daddy’s money wisely!!

    Yeah Right!!!

    Thanks for playin’ along!

  4. If you end up needing a post one of these days, I’d be interested to hear more about identifying kids with dyslexia. :)

  5. Small Town Girl says:

    Lovin’ your list! Have fun picking something out for yourself for your birthday. I’m more inclined to give people (my mom) a list of options, that way I’m at least somewhat surprised!

    Have fun with the decorating. The only bad part about that is that I would be jealous because I’d be doing all that fun stuff someplace else and not have the money to do it for my own place.

  6. Good list!! That would be fun to decorate the condo. And good to hear you will be back in the school environment for a bit. And, I hope your mom’s surgery goes well!!

  7. Hope you have a happy birthday!! 30 isn’t so bad(I say that because I still have about 4.5 years to go 😉

    Sorry Charlie’s sick. Hope he gets better soon.
