Shopped for school uniform shorts – check
Saw Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2 – check
(uh. I’m glad that Z already forgot this one scene … because I didn’t want to have to explain ‘broken condom’ to her – I actually was like “OMG Noooooooo!!!!!!!” – when that scene came up. No, no, no nude or sex scene, just a scene “after” & then a kind of funny pregnancy scare montage. We were going to see Wall-E, and I REALLY wanted to see that, but she saw the picture of America Ferrera and the Gilmore Girls chick and then she was like… “Mommmmm. No, I want to go see that!!” I should soooo read PARENT reviews first (it’s PG-13) – not terribly bad, but gosh that was kind of embarrassing having to say a few times, “I’ll explain it later.” Let’s hope she doesn’t bring it up again. I might just have to break out some knowledge on her far earlier than I expected – ug!!).
Pedicure – check. I’ll take pictures of her big toes tomorrow as she got flowers painted on her toes.
Sushi – check. The picture of Zoe in this crazy hat. I don’t know why, but I just dig it on her even though it did not match a thing she was wearing. Probably because she was so adamant about wearing it.
Bookstore – check. I got The Tao of Willie and this (ducks head in shame) Nicolas Sparks book. I always want to read them, but usually am like.. Ug! Sooooo hokey! Zoe got some Junie B. Jones books. We’ve been reading every night now and it makes her go to sleep so soundly.
Now, I’m headed off to bed. Wondering if my Texans won and sad about the death of Bernie Mac and the stabbing of an American at the Olympics. I saw Bernie interviewed a few times and he always seemed so smart and quick witted – just natural and it didn’t seem like a bit or forced. I’d link the stories, but I’m too tired and lazy tonight.
I can do this. Even through the laze.
Your assignment tonight is to tell me a memory (if you have any) of the Olympics. I have watched nearly all of them since I was little, but my first real memories were of Peggy Fleming/Dorothy Hamill and Bruce Jenner. Then of Nadia Comaneci, Carl Lewis, Michael Johnson, Janet Evans – who was my next-door neighbor for a while in Austin, Mary Lou, and Kristi Yamaguchi. There are so many images in my head and I love to re-watch the highlights.
Missing my Seattle Sweetie as usual.
