Happy Saturday! We don’t have any plans today which is so so so nice. I love when we have the whole day in front of us and there is nothing scheduled. I just poured myself a cup of coffee, I’m sitting in my office, I’ve got Parenthood on in the background, and I’m still in my pjs. Life really doesn’t get any better than this.
Well, it would be a little bit better if this brewed at home coffee was an actual Starbucks Salted Caramel White Mocha, but it’s okay, I’m content. I wouldn’t want anyone to think I’m spoiled or anything.
I’m going to explain this video first.
This is Murphie. This morning. We were sitting out in the hallway and I wanted to show you how she “talks”.
Sometimes, I think I am living with a cow. What do you think she sounds like? Murphie is a talker and does this all the time, but mostly when she’s tired, waking up, wants to play, is excited about something, is in the car, hears an ambulance, or sees someone.
In other words, she is almost never quiet!
(I think people think that about me.)
What else should I be doing at 8:41pm on a Tuesday?
This was pretty much the only hairstyle that I could even try to copy out of the thirteen hairstyles listed, and I couldn’t even do this one.
And, yes, I was trying to copy this one at 9:00pm on a Tuesday.
Sadly, I do not have hair skills.
It is tragic.
My neighbor, Lindsay, sent this to Steve and me. Her first grade daughter, Zoey, was writing notes for an oral presentation on what it means to be a good neighbor. She wrote it all by herself.
We cracked up! Steve thought it was so sweet that he is making Zoey’s favorite dinner (spaghetti and meatballs) tomorrow and we’re going to have a big Sunday meal together.
The funniest thing is that sometimes Lindsay has to tell her kids that Steve made something in order to get them to eat her food. They will balk or say they don’t want to try something and all she has to say is, Steve made it! and they they will eat it.
Okay, so I know that this movie has created some controversy and can be deemed political and all of that . . . so I’m not getting into any of that.
However, Steve and I went to see this on Thursday (THURSDAY! A SCHOOL NIGHT! I TOLD YOU I’M A PARTY ANIMAL!) and I have two things to say.
Number One: Joel from Parenthood is in it and he is a Navy Seal and he is big and kind of scary. I really liked this side of Joel.
Number Two: Our audience clapped at the end. (I did not start it.) And then it was completely silent when we filed out of the theater. The last time that happened to me was when I saw Passion of the Christ.
It says a lot, I think.
If you follow Jon’s Facebook Page, you might have seen that he is receiving GOBS AND GOBS of mail and packages for his birthday! It is so exciting and I’m so happy for him! If you or your class sent Jon birthday cards or letters or messages, thank you so so so much! I truly appreciate it!!! He even received mail from Australia! (there are a lot of exclamations in that paragraph so you may want to cover your ears because I am, in fact, using my high, squeaky excited voice)
These are just some of the letters and cards he has received. It is awesome!
And that is all.
I’m off to pour myself a second cup of coffee and rewind Parenthood because I can’t type this and pay attention to all the drama on Parenthood at the same time.
Have a wonderful weekend!
