I'm on vacation this week. Well, technically it's a "staycation" since we're not going anywhere. I did take a couple extra days off last week, though, which we spent at Great Wolf Lodge in Kansas City. Ooh, that place was fun! Well, for kids anyways. I'll write more about it later.
This week is just nuts - there is so much going on. First, hello, I'm on vacation. FINALLY. That's huge, people. HUGE. I've been trying to take a vacation all summer but work has been so busy I haven't been able to take one until now. Second, Ashley started kindergarten on Monday, as you know. THIRD, it's my wedding anniversary this week. Scott and I have now been married nine years. Nine. Numero nino. All I can hear in my head is the principal's voice from Ferris Bueller saying "Nine times." It is nine times, right? I'd google, but I'm on my iPad and it's not simultaneous blogger/google friendly.
FOURTH, it's Ashley's birthday this week. She's turning 6. Holy crappers. You know, if I was a good, thoughtful blogger, I would probably put together a nice post about the decision process we went through in deciding to wait to enroll Ashley in kindergarten until this year, putting her on the older side of the spectrum. But meh, I'm a humor blogger, so I probably won't do that. As the wise Pinkalicious says, "You get what you get and you don't get upset." Or is it "You get what you get and you don't throw a fit"? I can never remember. And again, the blogger/iPad/google conundrum.
Fifth, I have all this random stuff I want to write about. Like, for one, I watched "The Human Centipede" on Netflix Streaming the other week. Um, EW. Do not watch it. I repeat. DO NOT WATCH IT. I felt like I needed to soak my brain in rubbing alcohol afterwards.
Also, I keep meaning to talk about Twitter. And how I suck at it. I keep seeing posts in the blogosphere about how awesome Twitter is and how people didn't "get it" until they joined but now OMG they GET.IT. Well, I still don't get it. I feel like I'm standing in a room full of crowded people just yelling out random statements at the top of my lungs, but nobody notices. And I got nothin' to say. I'm all like "I LIKE MOVIES!" Or "IT'S HOT OUTSIDE!" Yeah, I suck at Twitter.
Finally, I just wanted to say that my Scotty made me a vanilla milkshake tonight just because. Wasn't that sweet? I drank it in like 2 seconds.
And yes, I realize this post is totally stream of consciousness/random as hell/extremely wordy. But that's fun every once in awhile, isn't it? Anyone? You still with me?
Hmmm, maybe I've figured out my Twitter problem. Brevity is not my friend.
