Just Some Stuff On My Mind . . .
. . . Okay, what the HECK do they think I'm supposed to do until February when "Lost" comes back on with new episodes? Last night's episode was FANTASTIC, but now there are no new shows until a month into 2007!! Yikes, I just don't know if I can wait that long!!! Will Kate and Sawyer actually leave while they have the chance (why Sawyer didn't run off with Kate while they could I don't know!)? How will Jack get out himself? (And, by the way, Jack was AWESOME in that episode! He totally had me thinking that he was gonna do the surgery, leave Kate and Sawyer to fend for themselves . . .but, no, he goes and does the heroic thing! Yay!) And the most intensity from that cliffhanger is that Jack has no idea what Kate and Sawyer know--that they're on a totally different island. Great episode! I can't wait to find out what happens! Just hope I can survive the wait!)
. . . I knew that my DH was a really great photographer, but I'm pretty impressed when he can actually make me look good! Sydney and I met him at the botanical gardens yesterday, because I needed a decent picture to use for the website of the scrapbook store I'm going to be doing some designing for. I really like what he came up with--
And then the pics he took of our little Scout (isn't she just the CUTEST?) Yes, she actually posed on cue!! --
(you can see the other pics he took by going to his BLOG.) . . . Speaking of our cute little Scout, she is saying the funniest things these days. Some of my favorites--
* "Trust me . . ." (as part of a statement like, "Trust me, I don't want to go.")
* "Can we go back to the Dumbo ride today, pweese?" (Sorry, Scout ... Disney World is a long way away!)
* "This is serious."
* "Can we go see _____(insert tv show character)?" (Took me forever to realize that she thinks we can go pose with any character from any tv show, like at DW.)
* "I don like that."
* "That's jus me poopin." (any sound that resembles "pooping"--including a stomach growling--she uses this sentence for.)
* "I don like football, Mommy. I want someting for me." (i.e. my tv-watching habits)
* "Yes please" and "No please." (the "please" is her version of "maam" or 'sir")
. . . When I got online this morning to read my comments, I had the sweetest one from my friend Kelly. What makes this so cool is that Kelly was my best friend back in 2nd-6th grade--yep, back in elementary school in the 1970s!!! She is one of the four childhood friends that I've hooked back up with in the last few years and that I've actually heard from in the last week! Kelly was my Charlie's Angel-"Pop Music" cohort; Michelle (who lives in Hawaii) was the 3rd part of the Cheryl-Kelly crew and is an absolute doll to this day!; Debby (who lives in Texas and is currently in her fourth round of chemo, so prayers for her please!) was my best cheerleading friend in ninth grade and great church youth group friend; and Margie (who's in Nebraska and getting married this summer!) was my junior high troublemaker best friend with whom I blew up chemistry experiments and cried over "The Outsiders" with.
(Born in Texas, I grew up in Fayetteville, Arkansas; then moved to Alabama and away from all of these friends when I was 13.)
How cool is that I now "talk" with all of these friends because of the wonderful invention called the Internet? Just the coolest!!
. . . And let me spread the love to all of my new blogging friends too! You guys are the greatest! You always lift me up and make me feel so good about myself and I am so grateful for that! Friends like Maria, who just makes us all of us feel good!! And Gareth for also making me feel good about myself (you know why! ha!) and making me laugh! (And, New Mom--I'm missing you!)
. . . Off to have a busy day. Delaney has a Veteran's Day program at school and then tonight is her big Fifth Grade Scholars ceremony for the entire county school system. We are so proud of her for this accomplishment!!! (But for now, I need to go take a shower and get my butt in gear!) See you all soon!
