By The Numbers

327--Number of times in the past 10 days that I've squealed or moaned while in the process of sitting or standing.  (I'm doing an 8 week Boot Camp with some friends and let's just say some of my muscles are re-introducing themselves to me.)

4-5 on average--Number of times I el-oh-el at something Char Char says to me each day.  For example, the other day while trying to figure out "popularity" he says to me.  "Well mom, I think that kids think I'm popular because of what I do at recess".  Me - What is that?  Him - "Well I started a club with my friends where we walk around real slow and gangster-like around the playground at recess.  I'm the president and I named it the Chuck Norris Club."

0--Number of times I've made my bed in the past week.  It's a block I'm having.  Sort of like writer's block.  But without creative thinking and staring at a computer screen.

1--Number of soccer games we've won while playing on the Adult Co-ed Soccer team (C league even). We've played about 8 games so far.  Math is hard but I'm pretty sure that's not a high percentage.  

Infinity--Number of times the jeans come out of my front loading washer twisted up into ropes/knots.  Any advise you may have would be appreciated.  I've tried different methods of  placing the pants in, re-shaping them before drying, letting them air dry, and even screaming at them and nothing helps.

3--Number of times I've walked past a tiny dog Halloween costume and considered buying one for our rat....ahem....terrier/chihuahua.

0.48--Numbers of seconds it took me to realize what the heck was I thinking and reason that I'm this close ::holding fingers together:: to losing all of the sanity I may have left.

4:30--Numbers on my clock when the alarm goes off every Mon-Fri for above mentioned Boot Camp.  Funny story about that.  When Boot Camp is over and we are driving home it's just after 6am and I've caught myself thinking, "They are just now exercising?"  What's happening to me?!

7--Number of days until myself, Aunt Visor, and my BabyBaby Sister (I know how much she loves it when I call her that) attend SYTYCD right here in B-town!!  I plan on taking video when AV shrieks with delight.

That's So Random

1. Have any of you watched the show "That's So Random" on Disney Channel?  I've found myself doing dishes or cooking dinner and suddenly I realize I've been standing still for 15 minutes not scrubbing a single dish or browning a single piece of meat.  I guess I'm still a kid at heart?  It's like a clean, younger version of Saturday Night Live and it makes my kids lollerz.

2.  Char Char is obsessed with Halloween.  Have I mentioned before?  He wants to DAILY decorate/craft/do something having to do with this holiday.  I'm not a huge fan of the deco for this one.  So, it's a stretch for me.  But I do enjoy seeing him do a happy dance in the kitchen when I show him the light up skeleton I got at TJ's today.  My only lament is that he no longer pronounces it "Hayoween".

3.  One more day of wearing these granny compression stockings!!  I knew you'd want to know.

4.  I've had a strange desire over the last 10 years or so to punch someone in the face.  Don't get me wrong, this isn't an anger issue.  And it really doesn't matter who it is (although if the local news weather person were standing in front of me that'd make is easier).  I just want to know what it feels like.  And, to be honest, I want to know if I throw a good punch or not.  So, maybe that local news person wouldn't be a good judge of my right hook.  Any volunteers let me know.

5. I've been sick for almost a month.  Not the lay-in-bed-can't-move sort of sick.  The just-enough-to-be-really-annoying-and-make-you-drag kind of sick. Still functioning in real life and stuff. Got a blood test.  Turns out I have mono!!!  I guess I've been kissing too many boys?  Either way, this is the note my child left me yesterday (spelling and punctuation exactly as written):

"mom i'm so sory that your sick so I desideed to rite a fu sentensis about you starteing now    
roses are red villets are blue shuger is sweet and so are you
heres another one       why are you sick you sholde'nt be sick because you sueer are nice and your the best mom in the whole world not because your butifull because you you and I love you so much your hair is made of medall"

6.  It finally changed weather around these parts.  63 high today.  Brrrrrr!!!

7. Prepare for the season of scarves on Memzy cuz I'm obsessed.

8. On a scale of 1 to 10 how lame is it to be obsessed with an accessory?

9. On a scale of 1 to 10 how amaze-ball are scarves?

10.  I hate cooking.  Did you know?  I DO it.  Trust me I do.  But I find no joy in the task.  I think my perfect world would be one in which I had a personal chef cook my families meals for us.  Also, I'd have a Diet soda fountain in my house......with foam cups and crushed ice.  And in that perfect world I could also run 5 miles a day and look like this:

Just Kidding.  I'd want to look like this actually.
