Yo, Yo,'s Ten things Thursday!

Thanks to the gorgeous Laura Belle we have Ten Things Thursday!!

1. In exactly one week I will be sitting in Chicago with complete strangers (unless of course I some how mange to get really lost and can never find those strangers...which trust me, is a very real possibility for me).

The Boy is still convinced that I am really going to meet a bunch of Craigslist  Killers and he will never see me again. The Rockstar is just worried about if I will be going grocery shopping before I leave.

2. I have seen at least like 3 people post that they hope it's cold enough in Chicago to wear boots. I will not be one of those boot wearing gals. I am not ready to put socks and shoes on on my piggies just yet. It was 48 degrees when I left the house this morning and yes, I still had on my flip flops.

Even if I did like wearing socks and shoes I wouldn't be wearing boots. I am 5 foot nothing and most of that is body, not legs. If I put boots on I look like a Oompa Loompa.

3. I took my kiddos bowling today. My kids have no trouble beating me at bowling. They have also learned that when I have the ball in my hands it's a good idea not to be within 25 feet behind me. Some how I mange to throw the ball behind me....often.

4. Did you watch the Big Brother season finale last night???? It was a nail biter. Dan played a sneaky game, but I am glad he didn't win it...I don't like him.

5. I hate that the days are getting shorter. I have overslept for the past two mornings. I only seem to do that when it is still dark when my alarm goes off. And I hate driving to work in the dark.

6. Speaking of alarm clocks someone please tell me that I am not the only one who tries to play mind tricks on themselves my setting the time way ahead. I don't know why I do mind is not tricked, not even for a second. I also set my alarm for a whole hour before I have to really get up. The snooze button is not enough for me. If I woke up and thought I only had 10 more minutes to sleep I would be pissed off about it the rest of the day. I need at least an hour warning that I am going to have to drag myself out of bed.

7. My hair may have thinned out some since surgery, but it certainly has not stunted the how fast it grows. I have to color my hair every two weeks. I get it foiled and cut every six weeks. As a matter of fact, I went and got the mop worked on yesterday. My hair acts crazy the first two weeks after cut, then for two weeks it's perfect, then for two weeks it's crazy again. I go get it done and we start all over again.

8. The good thing about Fall/Winter is that I love winter time food...beef stew, chili, homemade chicken soup. I don't know why I think I can't eat any of these foods in the summer.

9. The Boy has always been a prankster. Over two years ago he gorilla glued a quarter to the street in front of our driveway. It is STILL out there. Just this week I have seen 3 different people out walking their dogs who tried to pick up that quater. It cracks me up every time. That gorilla glue is no joke.

10. Ha, ha. You thought I was going to go a whole post and not mention Harleigh....tricked ya suckerssss...

Harleigh is such a good girl in the car. She doesn't cry or anything. Actually, she is just like baby...she goes right to sleep in the car.

I thought you were talking about me with the alarm thing....I so do that too! I'm happy I'm not the only one!!

Vanessa said...

Flip Flops for life! If I were in a gang - flip flops would be my gang tattoo. ...just sayin...

Sarah G said...

I was a hard core flip flopper until I developed plantar fasciitis. Sorry but orthopedic flip flops are soooooo ugly.

Tina @ The Bandit Girl said...

oh my, Big Bro was exciting. Once Janelle was out, I was all Team Ian. Dan got more than he deserved. Have fun in will not get lost (but get someone's cell before you go)

speck said...

Have I told you that I love you! I wonder if we will still like each other after Chicago! lol JK

I'm bringing a pair of flip flops to wear on pajama night.

#2....My daughters said the same thing!

I got my hair did. Probably the only time in years that I don't care for it. Oh well.

This time next week.....we have already met!

I have 2 alarm clocks. One is set WAY ahead and the other one isn't right either. Big trick....and I get some sort of exhileration in my head saying "oh my - that time is a lie - I get to lay back down". I'm an idiot.

tz said...

people, including me, wear flip flops all year round...and I live in Denver :D

Beth said...

I do the clock thing. First off, the clock is not actually the correct time, and then the snooze is 9 minutes. I firmly believe it is the math that finally wakes me up!

jennxaz said...

I was glad Ian won...I didn't like Dan or the game he played...trickster!

Cheri said...

Was thinking of you during BB. :-)

My daughter LOVED the quarter idea (read her that. :-D).

Every TWO WEEKS?? I'm trying to go 8, but it was ugly last time. I may have to go to 6. Of course being tall helps a little. Everyone is looking down at your part in your case, huh? lol ;-D I avoid tall people the last 2 weeks. :-D

trishajo said...

i am the queen of snooze. except I never set it ahead - i am just always almost late! LOL

harleigh is SOOOOO CUTE!!!!!!

Ronnie said...

#8 - Same here!

And I wear flops until the first snow of the season in good ol' Texas. lol

Laura Belle said...

My hubby thinks that everyone is out to get me too in Chicago. He just can't understand how I would be safe with all these 'strangers'. lol. simple little husband.

I actually never thought about boots! Shit. Now I have to redo all that I'm bringing to wear. double shits.

I love your little baby. My mom has a faux shearling carseat for hers so she is always safe and secure:)
