Spaz Attack

Thoughts from a big spaz who has lots to spaz about.

some random thoughts this morning....

1. holidays are great, huh? it's just a little treat to not have to rush around the house in the morning and to lounge around in your pjs a little longer. veterans, thank you for serving our country. i couldn't do it, so my hats off to you for having the balls to do so.

2. the other week, i was talking to rich on the phone and he had to get off abruptly. when we talked later on, he apologized for getting off the phone so quickly and explained that a car had driven up to pick him up for carpool. i asked him some more questions about this and found out that he just waits in a line with complete strangers to be picked up by strangers to get to work! OMG! i was so shocked! i've never heard of anything like this and couldn't believe that he actually gets into cars of complete strangers. isn't this called hitch hiking?!!! couldn't a mass murderer dress himself up in a suit and pick up my little brother? i don't know. i think this is really dangerous and can't believe that rich take such risks to get into work.

3. chase loves giraffes. don't know why but it's really cute. i was telling tyler the other day that some religions think that you come back to life as an animal after you die. he looked at chase and said, "i know that you want to come back as a giraffe." made me smile.

4. i just found out that some mom in our community will be the new lady on the next season of the real housewives of oc! i was really surprised because, trust me, the community that i live in is NOT that posh like what i'm used to seeing on that show, but i'm really excited! that was one of my favorite shows when we had cable. i told jason the other night that i want cable again just to watch this show when it airs and he told me that i was crazy.

5. i finally got the clarisonic the other day. i used it twice now and i think it really does make a difference! i'll give you another update in about a month but so far so good. for some reason, i was absolutely giddy about this purchase..... probably because it's been ages since i bought something so, so frivolous. but hey, if my girlfriend oprah likes it, i do too.

6. we live in near this big street that has a main bike path and we see bikers on it all the time. every time i see a group of bikers, i think how awesome it would to be a biker one day- a true, true biker who knows the ins and outs of biking and has all the right gear. but then, i think about all the sun damage and all the dangers of being so close to traffic and i quickly change my mind. oh, you didn't know i am a very fickle girl?

7. oh which reminds me, when i see people running outside on the streets, i think, "good for your body now, bad for your skin later." :) oh, i wish i knew the dangers of the sun when i was little. i used to lay out under the sun and even went to a couple of tanning salons back in the goodness...what in the world was i thinking!? i'm not too crazy about it with the boys but i know that if i had a little girl, i would be slathering on that sunscreen on her all the time!

8. speaking of boys, man, are they just....boys! everything becomes a weapon, they always want to play "power rangers," they scream and yell fighting noises, they jump off of couches, they want to throw things and break things. it's so opposite of me when i was growing up, that it's actually humorous to watch them sometimes because i don't know where this extra "energy" comes from. tyler recently wrote a "book" (a couple of pages just stapled together) and titled it "how to fight." he just put some stuff in a brown bag right now and wrote on the bag "tyler's fighting supplies." !!!! oh, and he woke up the other night and said he had a "great dream." when I asked him what his great dream was about, he said, "i was in fighting class and got a power axe and fought with the evil guys." oh my! tyler used to by my calm and mild mannered boy so to see him morph into this crazy fighting boy is so weird to me!

9. do you know where i like to shop? the 99 cents only store! something about being in there makes me feel so rich!  i like going there to get things for the school and once in a while, i will find some great deals and buying that ONE item pays for all the other items. for example, i find a great book that i would have paid $15 for at a book store and now i feel like i have $14 dollars to waste on other things! haha... don't knock it people. sometimes, they have some great things, especially for teachers.

10. can't believe the holidays are around the corner. sadly, i'm not really feeling very festive yet.

11. aren't births so exciting? it's like witnessing a miracle. if you don't believe in miracles, just see a mom holding a baby that was in her tummy a week before. it's so beautiful. christine, congrats on the birth of avery. i can't wait to meet her. renu, don't know if you read this, but i can't wait to see you baby girl....any day now!

hope you have a great long weekend to relax and be merry with the ones that you love! ttys (talk to you soon!)
