What I'm Thinking About............

You know how every Thursday I always tell you that it's my favorite day of the week, right.... well, now even more!! Because like Tuesday, Thursdays are now like my Friday!! In the past I liked Thursday because it meant one more day to the weekend; and now it means my last day before the weekend, since my weekend now begins on Thursday evening.....because I have Friday off!!! Yipppeee!! Ok, Ok.... I promise I won't talk about my part time work anymore...I won't talk about having two days off during the week to refresh and get things done!! I know some of you are probably tired of hearing me say I will stop; it's just that this was the first week of my new schedule and it is exciting..... but I'm done now!! Thanks for hanging around and being supportive!!

Of course, my other favorite thing about Thursday is MamaKat's homework.... I actually really enjoy it; I get excited to see her prompts and then have fun writing for all of you!!! I think I am in a really good mood today and it feels good!!
I am pretty busy today, so I am going to take the easy way out and tell you 10 things I am thinking about this week:

1. Waiting anxiously for Joseph's bloodwork to come back...... which it did and it was normal, Thank God!!
2. Planning our upcoming trips (a winter ski trip, mother's day trip to IN to visit my Nana and my mother's grave, and a summer trip for the boys
3. Amazed, disgusted, in awe at the fact that AirTran now charges $6.00 a seat in order to pick your seat ahead of time.... can you even believe that??? They call it "purchasing your advance seat assignment"
4. Getting the kids enrolled in the Pre-Paid college plan (anybody ever do this...any suggestions?)
5. Planning a little Valentine's get-away; and trying to decide what to get Joe for Valentine's Day
6. Trying to figure out why are washing machine leaks sometimes.... I can't tell when in the cycle it happens or if it leaks only when it is a bigger load or only if I use hot water...arrrggghh!!!
7. Who is the Bachelor going to pick for his wife???? (yea, I'm a dork!!)
8. Cj being punished for having a couple bad grades because he was missing some assignments.... These are assignments that he told me (assured me) were done while he was out sick!! I am able to check his daily/weekly progress online and turns out he was not telling me the complete truth!!
9. And because of the above mentioned punishment, I now have to decide to allow him to go to his good friends birthday party tomorrow night....?? WHAT would you all do?? He is bringing the grades up now (although not quite there yet) and ALL of his friends will be there and I hate for him to miss out on that; but Advice????
10. Trying to eat better/healthier and get into better shape!!! ("trying" is the key word here)

You have a lot on your mind little lady! Soe here are my thoughts on your thoughts
Yeah for Joseph
No idea for V-day gifts
If you already told CJ he could go before the grades took a dip, I'd let him go. He seems like a good kid. He'll do better!
Have a great long weekend! (Im so jealous)

glad to hear his blood work came back normal. I'll throw in a few bucks if I can come on one of your trips. I love getting away.

Kristin said...

You have so much on your mind. On the topic of prepaid college plans I sighed them up for a 529 plan and a U promise account. I would look into those two options first. That is the only advise I have for you but you are in my thoughts.

Emily said...

U do have a lot on your mind.. i wonder who the bacholer is going to chose too! yeah for trips! i would let him go... esep since he knows he was in the wrong and is working on getting his grades up!

Lace said...

Oh my goodness... you have way too much on your mind this week! Whew! Oh, and the bachelor is SO going to pick Melissa, I think you should still let CJ go(give him a different restriction), annnnd I think you should get some hot mama lingerie for your man for V-day! That would blow his mind! haha! OH! & look up his favorite recipe from a restaurant and make it for him! He'll love that you took the time :)

And yes... McDreamy out- Boy, well- he's trying and I'm listening. He's doing a pretty darn good job so far :) McDreamy was great, but everything in me was telling me that I belong with Boy. & Boy was telling me I belong with boy, lol.

Seriously, I sometimes feel the need to pick up the phone and call some of you guys to catch up! haha!

Heather Marie said...

So glad to hear the good news about your hubbys results! God is great! :)

As for the should stick to it, but I think this one should let him slide....birthdays are only once a year and he would be really sad if he didn't go. Since his grades are improving....maybe this could be an incintive to keep bring them up?

But what do I know...I'm no momma!!! haha

Drama Mama said...

My brain just blew UP after reading that! I'm still confused as to whether or not its Thursday or Friday or maybe its Tuesday and we are just calling it Thursday because it's kinda like Friday...but not.

LMAO! I'm just messin with ya! Come on over to my house and help me get my shit together. My list was depressing.

I want to know why the airlines haven't lowered fares now that gas has gone down so much?? Riddle me that! :)

DysFUNctional Mom said...

Thursdays are my Fridays too.....I'm doing a 12 hour shift right now, I'll get off at 7am, then I'm off till Monday night at 11pm. Love the long weekends!
As for your dilemma re: the party...I hate those kinds of decisions! I'm alway so uncertain of what to do.

Just The Girl said...

My mind is always going like that. I always have so much that I am thinking about! I am so jealous you get a long weekend :)

Do you have a top loader? Pap-Pap's TL leaks sometimes if you don't pull up on the front of the barrel and the water splashes out over.
