Another weekend bites the dust. Boo.
I am soooooo sick of all the election mumbo-jumbo. Seriously, can we just get this over with please? I’m glad I early voted so I don’t have to worry about getting to the polls on time or fighting the crowds. For once I did something ahead of time and didn’t procrastinate. Go me. Saturday Night Live = hilarity.
I heard Sam laugh for the first time today. A for real, genuine, unmistakable laugh. It was so cute! The Accountant was making faces and being goofy and she LOVES it. I don’t want to wish this baby stage away but I am really excited to watch her progress through all those “firsts” stages. It is so amazing.
I’ve noticed that a few of my fellow bloggers are taking part in NaBloPoMo and NaNoWriMo. The later one scares the pants off of me so I will not attempt that one. But I do think I will semi-try to do NaBloPoMo but only unofficially. I don’t like to put that kind of pressure on myself. Ha. If you are wondering why I am speaking in tongues, NaBloPoMo is National Blog Posting Month and you are supposed to post on your blog every day in November. Sounds easy right? We’ll see. So I’m going unofficial so I don’t feel any guilt if I miss a day or two. NaNoWriMo is National Novel Writing Month and this one is a bit more complicated. Bottom line – get words on paper and come away with a novel in November. I think the goal is 50,000 words? I’m working up to this one. For me the key is “don’t think, just write”.
Daylight savings time….meh. Not a fan really. Why are we messing with the clock? I’ll get used to it, I always do. I never get an extra hour of sleep though because I’m always calculating in my mind “ok, it’s 11:00 old time which means it’s really only 10:00 new time so I can stay up an hour later and it will all be the same to my internal timeclock”. I’m a fan of psychological games I guess. (Randomness – is “timeclock” a legit word? Doesn’t the word clock denote the concept of time so using the two words together seems silly, right? Yes, I am crazy.)
Titans game – woohoo! 8 – 0!!! Scout ventured to the game and I think she got her money’s worth!
Mike Huckabee and Bill Maher are arguing about religion on Fox News right now. Very interesting. I have to hand it to both of them, the conversation is quite civil. Discussion is a good thing.
It just hit me today that we are about to be bombarded with Christmas “stuff”. I was in Kroger this afternoon and they were putting up the tree and stocking (heh, no pun intended, really) the seasonal aisle. For the first time in several years, we will be putting up a tree! We put one up the first few years we lived in our house but then decided it was too much trouble and such a pain to take down. But now that we have Sami, I feel like it’d be a travesty to not put one up, even though she won’t remember this one or care one way or the other. But I’ll bet she will like the lights though. I’m thinking the weekend of Thanksgiving…
Ok, must get all my junk together for tomorrow. Ciao.
