Whee, it's Thursday! Time for my thoughts! Linking up as always through the fantastic Jen from Ramblings of a Suburban Mom. My thoughts should be much more coherent today, as it has FINALLY cooled down a bit around here! And by a bit, I mean over 10 degrees. Highs have been in the mid-to-low 90s lately, and a huge rainstorm last night cooled it off to about 76 for today. And you can bet that EVERY window in the house is open, and every fan is on! I'm a notorious cheapskate about our A/C, so getting the chance to cool the house down for *free* is making me quite ecstatic! And it's making my thoughts so much clearer! So, what AM I thinking about today? Well...
- It's hilarious how much Dragon looks like a little-boy version of Jim Morrison. Of course it doesn't help that we let his brown, slightly curly hair grow long and shaggy. I just sent my hubby a pic text of Dragon, shirtless, wearing a 70s-ish beaded necklace, with a somber expression on his face. I captioned it "Jim Morrison says 'Hi!'"
- Thankfully, he doesn't act like Jim Morrison (...yet?). He's currently running around the living room, pretending to be a chicken. Flapping his arms, pecking at the floor, the walls, and (occasionally) his older brother. So adorable! Knight just tolerates it, rolls his eyes, and moves on. He's almost 6, so he's starting to realize what "being cool" means, and that rolling around pecking at the floor is *not* cool!
- My hubby's foot is healed! He had one of his last podiatry appointments yesterday, and they couldn't even find where it was originally broken on the X-ray! He's been given the all-clear to go back to training as hard as he wants, which is awesome because his job is very physically demanding. Also, because working out is his stress relief, he's been a total BEAR for the past few months while it heals. Love you, babe!
- I'M A WINNAH!!! Just found out I'm one of the Brand Challenge Winners for Influenster's Palmolive Program. So not only did I get to try 2 full size bottles of dish soap FOR FREE (ok, 1.5 bottles. They had some shipping issues... feel free to check out my original post on it!) but now I'm getting more soap, Broadway Press-On Nails (tried these in the Spring Fever Voxbox and really liked them!) AND SinfulColors Nail Polish! So stoked. And I needed some good news, because...
- Our second car is in the shop. It has pretty much not been functional for about a year now (it ran, just NOT WELL). And when my hubby was away for his job for several months, I kind of just put off dealing with it. Well, now that school is starting again soon, we absolutely need two working vehicles! So... pray, send good karma, happy vibes, whatever, that the repair bill won't be *too* much (of course, it will be. But I can hope).
So, that's what's on my mind today. Next time I'll try to have some more upbeat and frivolous thoughts! Oh, and I will have a swatch post of fun eyeshadow pigments from Notoriously Morbid coming soon!
Have a fabulous day!
