I was walking with my family in the store after making birthday purchases for the boys. Their birthday’s are a month apart so they are both getting new bikes and “Rock Band” for the wii.
On the way out of the store, James was walking beside me. He made an over-exaggerated yawn, stretched and put his arm around me. Then made a triumphant “Yes! Cha-Ching!” motion with his arm and fist.
I raised my eyebrow questioningly and gave him a “What was THAT?!” look that I have gotten so good at since birthing him almost 12 years ago.
“I’m practicing, Mom. I want to have smooth moves in my dating years.”
Duh. Because THAT should have TOTALLY occurred to me.
Getting 13 hours of solid sleep and having my dad be ok has helped tremendously. I also finally looked at the Community Keynote Speaker list and was very happy to see Casey, Mr. Lady, Heather B. ,Y and The Bloggess,on the list.
To them, I say:
CONGRATULATIONS! I have expressed my adoration for all of you and love your guts. I hope you also know that I AM happy for you. I just had a nuclear disaster of a couple of days and needed to explode cry and get my shiz back together. (Yes, I said “Shiz”. I think I used up my entire potty mouth quota for the year in that previous post.)
The good news is all that crying made me lose 6 lbs. Sweet.
I hope my rant (if you saw it) didn’t make you uncomfortable. If it did, I’m sorry. I plan on tackling you all at BlogHer. Just so you know.
