Something Wicked this Way Comes

It’s Monday evening, and I’m finding myself gathering thoughts about the day while a severe thunderstorm threatens to keep the Catholic Family awake overnight. Let’s try not to think too hard about that. I mean, really, the Catholic Peeps and I live in what’s known as ‘Tornado Alley‘ so this kind of thing is just a plain ‘ole fact of life. Instead, we’ll focus on the high and low points of the day in the cheatingest way possible known as BULLETED LISTS!

High Points:

  • Sleeping in. Trying anyway after thunder/lightening managed to annoy aggravate my sleep.
  • Clean sheets. Not like that’s the most fun chore on the planet, but everyone will be so pleasantly surprised when heads hit pillows tonight. Love that feeling.
  • Feeding my people and seeing them eat every last bite. Ham, egg & cheese english muffins (McDonald’s ain’t got nuthin’ on my recipe!), french bread pepperoni pizza lunch, and cheesy turkeyburger macaroni with crescent rolls for dinner.
  • Target & Best Buy retail therapy with Catholic Girlie. Oh yes we did, and directly after dinner to burn off those calories. Brought home a couple of storage bins, full length mirror at the request of CG’s cello coach for practice purposes, toothpaste, cat litter, tall kitchen garbage bags, and 2 DVD/Wii game storage towers. Total fun.
  • Paperback Swap requests. Lo and behold, a fellow swapper sent a request for 3 of my books. So after printing off a postage label and packing those babies up, I’ll have 3 credits with which to request someone else’s books. Sweet!

Low Points:

  • Catholic Girlie’s school physical. First of all, what kind of mom takes her kid to get a school physical on the first Monday of summer break? Guilty as charged. Secondly, we learned the unfortunate news that CG’s curvature of her spine has increased by 1% bringing it to a total of 5%. I have no experience in this territory and feel defenseless in helping her, aside from the usual, ‘Drink your milk’ and ‘Watch your posture’ comments, to which I receive that LOOK in return. Lord help us all.
  • 4 hour teleconference support with client. While the CK’s were superb in respecting my need for NO SCREAMING OR RUNNING AROUND THE HOUSE LIKE A HERD OF STAMPEDING WILDEBEASTS, quite frankly, that call went on way longer than it should have. Praise God for billable hours. He knew what He was thinking there.
  • That dratted storm outside right now. Because I treasure my electronics so much that I prefer not to see them fried by electrical storms, I probably should end this post soon. Bah.

How’s that for amazing – yet another blog post! This is actually easier than I thought it would be.
