Sorry guys and gals . . .I'm Actually a Goober
You guys made me feel so good and adequate and professional yesterday...so I guess I needed to prove that I'm actually a goober underneath the published credits and speaking engagements. And, yep, this did it...
Sydney and I went yesterday afternoon on a quick trip to Walmart (I needed some sheets of felt for the School Days mini album I'm making and she had approximately 6 pennies that she said she was using to buy a candy bar). I parked, stood up to get out of the car and unbuckle Sydney when--thank goodness!--I looked down and noticed that my shorts were on inside-out. I closed the door and promptly took my shorts off, turned them back inside out correctly, and put them back on. From the backseat I heard, "You can't take your clothes off in a car." I just laughed (thinking, "I hope she always thinks that!" lol) and told her she was right. Thank goodness I hadn't walked into Walmart with my clothes on backwards (although I guess it would have been an even funnier thing to blog about this morning!).
There are days when I'm not sure if I'm coming and going, and there are those moments when I really do something so embarrasing that I can't quite believe it myself. (Probably the most goober-like thing I've ever shared on this blog was THIS; go down to the Thurs., Aug 17 entry.) Have you done anything embarrassing lately? Come on now...if you can't share with us, who can you share with?
Okay...what else is going on?
Just some things I'm feeling and doing right now--
. . . Tonight is the high school's first "jamboree" football game (it's like a scrimmage before next week's opening night of play) and the band/McKenna's color guard squad will perform (I'm looking forward to seeing how they do!) . . .
. . . I've been watching "Will and Grace" on late-night reruns when I've been the very last person awake in the household. How crude, but how stinkin funny, was that show? (I caught the one yesterday where Jack and Grace went insanely crazy over figure skating! High-larious!) . . .
. . . I am SO sick of ants I could scream! (this awful weather--103 again yesterday!!-- apparently has them all running for cover and hordes of them keep coming through my kitchen window sill. Icky!) . . .
. . . I'm hoping I get to have a GNO (Girls Night Out) with four of my girlfriends tomorrow night. It literally will be the last weekend that we can hang out and hang loose until like December, because there is Friday night high school football and Bama games every Saturday. So, hoping we can get our act together and go have a laugh- and food- fest tomorrow . . .
. . . I spent some time yesterday going through some old school-days pictures of myself for the album I'm doing for my CLASS. I could not stop laughing! The boys in my 2nd grade class wearing Fonzie t-shirts; the cheerleading pictures from ninth grade (Delaney looked at them and said, "I can see now why they called you chicken legs!"); pics of me and my friend Margie in junior high Physical Science (we, literally, blew things up in there!); the "lovely" pictures of me and my hair from 1985! I will have to share some these pictures with you in a Down Memory Lane post some day soon. Let me just say. . . priceless! ...
. . . I'm very happy when an article comes together well, and I have had the best of luck in getting sources for this fun article I'm writing on old-time gospel singing groups. Now to sit down and write it this weekend! (Not so good on the article I'm trying to do on menopause; for some reason, people aren't as eager to talk about that! lol)
. . . Why does this song just make me happy? I'm not a huge country fan, but there are times when I really get in the mood for it. This song just makes me laugh and feel kinda wish-I- was-seventeen-all-over-again (not that I did anything like that when I was 17; :-) ), and I think it's a good one to take us into the weekend!
. . . I have exactly one more week of being 38! Love birthdays and mine's next week! (And at least I'm not saying I've got one more week of being 39! lol)
Have a fabulously wonderful Friday and weekend!! I will be enjoying football, battling ants, putting albums together, hanging with friends, and trying to survive the heat. What will you be doing? Whatever it is...I hope it's all GOOD!!
(Added On: Okay, TK Angels popped on here with some pics of her grandkids bed jumping and it made me remember what I wanted to post here this morning!! HA!! I really DON'Tknow whether I'm coming or going, do I? Anyway...remember that I want your Bed Jumping Pictures. You remember all of my wonderful pictures of me, my girls, even Gary bedumping at hotels throughout this past year? Well, here is your chance to be in the First Annual Bed Jumping Photo Contest here at my little ole blog! Post them on your blog or email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. The winner--voted on by my own Bed Jumping celebrities--will win some sort of bed-jumping-related rak. Hmm, wonder what that could be? You have until August 31. Yay!!!)
