- So have you noticed that it’s been getting darker earlier every night? Like much earlier! So here’s my quandary: why do we have to do the whole “spring forward, fall back” thing if all of this really happens on its own. I’ve never understood changing your clocks twice a year. Do we do it just so we can remember to change the batteries in our smoke alarm?? And isn’t it true that some states don’t even participate in all this craziness? This is one of those things that if I think about it too long, I start to get panicky.
- I’ve always known I’ve had the best husband. There are many reasons I know this, but here’s one that will prove it. So our house was built in the ’60s and the bathrooms are still original. Which means lots of tile. Lots and lots of green and yellow tile. It’s all in good shape and I kind of think it’s charming, however, I can’t ever seem to get the grout between the tile in our shower completely clean. I was complaining about this to Jason, because truly romantic pillow talk must contain at least one reference to dirty grout. When the boys and I came home from the beach, I found a sparkling shower that Jason had attacked with bleach-infused Tilex and an old toothbrush. I don’t want to think about how many brain cells he killed breathing in those fumes in our stalled shower, but I love him for it.
- Do y’all like the show “Design Star” on HGTV? It’s one of my favorite summer shows. One reason is because I love design shows and I love competition shows. The other reason is the gratuitous screen time given to David Bromstad (be still my heart). Anywhooo, I was watching the show one day while the boys were supposed to be napping. Isaac snuck downstairs and charmed me into letting him stay up and there were about 15 minutes left in the show. I told him that he had to lay with me quietly until the show was over, which he agreed to. So as we were laying there, this contestant came on the screen:
- We had some friends over a few nights ago and somehow we got on the subject of “Saved by the Bell”. At the first mention of Jesse Spano, John and I both immediately recalled the infamous “drug” episode. We immediately pulled up the clip on YouTube, which will heretofore be referred to as “The Jesse Spano I’m So Excited Caffeine Pill Freakout”. For your enjoyment….
I’m not sure what is funnier–the ridiculous acting or the fact that the dangerous drugs that Jesse Spano got “addicted to” were actually caffeine pills. Scary stuff, right there. If the message they are sending is true, then I expect an intervention regarding my iced coffee usage at any time. Maybe I should start practicing my freakout scene. Here goes:
“No, Jason, I NEED my iced coffee. I have to vacuum!! I have to teach water aerobics!! I have to make lunches and the kids both have “My Family” projects due tomorrow!!” Then I will sob and shriek as I hysterically dance and sing “Hey Ya!”.
