Gone for the Day
Song of the Day: Maybe Iâ€™m Amazed by Paul McCartney
From my charming child:
â€œThe optic nerve is in the eye and it goes to the brain and makes you see.â€
Um. Okay. Have no idea where he learned THAT one. But Husband and I were highly impressed by this tidbit of information.
And he broke one of my blue Christmas balls because he was wishing big (ie., the Sears commercial). I knew the second I heard it hit the hardwood floor â€“ you know itâ€™s that tinkering crash sound followed by a pop and you just KNOW something delicate has broken. He canâ€™t seem to keep his hands off the Christmas tree. We had a long talk about what NOT to touch on the tree. He had a blast helping me decorate it and did very well with the glass balls â€“ he didnâ€™t drop one or break one. Anyway, he made this cute little red and white candy cane in school so itâ€™s on the tree now. Along with all the little ornaments I made when I was a kid and all the ones that were made and given to me by my sisters and mother. I love my tree. Itâ€™s full of angels and homemade decorations and of course the blue balls (wow that sounds REALLY bad). 😯
Heâ€™s going through one of those phases where he talks back and doesnâ€™t do a thing we say. Drives me batty. Iâ€™m sure itâ€™s because heâ€™s four and he thinks he can get away with it. I was HIGHLY annoyed with him last evening when I picked him up because he heard NOTHING anyone was telling him to do. GRR. Makes me wanna fall on a sword. :dead:
Today I have my company awards banquet and Iâ€™ll be out of touch all day long. I have to go in early and help set up things and then it starts at around noon with lunch, followed by the riveting presentation of awards. To say Iâ€™ll be jonesing for the computer is an understatement of EPIC proportions. I NEED my computer time, folks. Okay, I have a terrible addiction to email and the Internet. What can I say? I must be connected at all times.
You think anyone will notice if I bring my laptop and send email to Sysenlaw all day long?
Probably not a good idea, I guess.
I should be home early on Friday (early being like 4:30) â€“ provided of course I donâ€™t get too lost coming home. It happens every year though. I always miss the :censored: turn and end up in downtown Grapevine. Maybe THIS year Iâ€™ll get it right.
I sure hope the post office hasnâ€™t lost my contract. It hasnâ€™t arrived yet. Iâ€™m still keeping a keen eye out for it.
