10 Things You Hate Doing....

...Amy tagged me this week. She's running on nine good toes this week, so go on over and give her some love!

Here goes....(in no particular order)

1. Getting a glaucoma test
2. Cleaning a my glass shower door
3. Organizing my files (digital and hard copies)
4. Being in an overly-crowded store, restaurant, or theme park.
5. Parent/teacher conferences. It's not that I dislike the parents, it's that I'm so very bad at these!
6. Folding/putting away clothes
7. I'm with Amy--putting away too-small baby clothes is a bleak, sad task!
8. Waiting in a doctor's office on the paper-covered exam table, in a paper outfit, reading a Reader's Digest from the late 80's.
9. Paying bills.
10. Squats, lunges, push-ups, or sit-ups. Evil. EVIL!!!!!

Alright ladies, and you know who you are (Carol, Angie, Megan, Jen, Sabrina, and Donavan)....pony up!

Oh, and Bruno Kiby died. Young. He was the one with the stupid, wagon wheel, Roy Rogers, garage sale coffee table! Sad. =(

In today's real estate market.....

...hand-me-downs rule! Our friends Hailee and Emily were sweet enough to hand over their playhouse to the girls, as they're getting too old to play in it. The girls got to explore it for the first time yesterday, now that the evenings are cooler. Not bad for a starter home!

Jonesin' for my Scrubs!

Someone on my twins' forum started a thread about favorite TV theme songs. Which reminded me of Ted's a capella group on Scrubs. I love that show. It's in my Top Ten of all time for sure. What stinks is that it's not due to come back until mid-season (2007), so I only have my Seasons 1-3 DVDs to keep me warm. And YouTube. It might not be everyone's humor, but it's mine. They're also nominated for an Emmy....c'mon NBC! Throw it back into the lineup. Oh, to have Scrubs, Earl, and The Office together. Bliss!

Sellin' out to The Man

And then there was one. Our friend Mike went and cut his hair. His Kevorka. The glossy locks that were grown with love...and mass quantities of Dew and Frappucinos. Apparently a Physics degree brings one a new lease on life, and a new perspective on hair. Now you're no longer a long-haired dude, Dude. You're just a dude......Dude.

***he gave it to Locks of Love. Awesome.

Whenever I know....

...that there's a big change coming up in my life, I begin to have odd dreams. The new school year is about to begin, so the dreams are here. Remember those dreams you'd have in high school where you'd show up for class naked, or forget where your locker was? These are a variation on that. Lemme give ya a 'for instance.' The other night, I had a dream that our new administrator insisted that the bathroom stalls in the ladies' room be removed. This way, we would have a 'community' bathroom. Yeah. I dream about this stuff. Soon after, I had a dream that my classroom had been moved to a portable at the very last minute. Said portable was located on a steep incline, so that my entire classroom was tilted. And the previous teacher had left all of her stuff behind. So there I was, frantically trying to remove her stuff and replace it with mine, while my students cried, "Teacher! My desk is sliding!" While I'm not exactly anxious to be without my girls during the day, I AM anxious to get back to the grownup world for a bit. Wish me a dreamless sleep tonight!

Here's a picture of my Sweet Char in her highchair. I should really take the blankie away. How's that gonna look on her first date????
