I need a personal shopper. Really. Because I hate shopping. Everything I like doesn't come in my size, the stuff that does come in my size is loudly colored, and I absolutely loathe meticulously going through racks looking for what I want. It's downright humiliating for me, and I get very discouraged very quickly. I'm also not brave enough to try new things. I need someone to go shopping with me, and at least give me a thumbs up or down at my outfit choices. I need someone to say "OMG! That is the BEST color on you--you should really wear that color more often!" in a voice that is not at all condescending. I like elegant clothes--clean lines and minimal fussiness. It's one of the reasons that I love black. Well, that and black tends to hide all the food stains on my chest.
I have all these plastic glasses, because this is a clumsy family and I don't like cleaning up shards of glass. Is the phrase "plastic glasses" an oxymoron? Some of the tumblers now have cracks in the bottom(Plastic cracks? When did that happen?)...except you can't see the cracks. So I fill up a tumbler, not realizing that it's cracked, and set it down on a table. And the inevitable happens, and there's a puddle. That's how I figure out that the glass is now a recyclable item. Seems to me that there should be another way to determine a glass is cracked, but it escapes me right now, because I am tired.
Zane has announced that he will not be attending kindergarten this fall. He's decided that he just does not want to go to school. He does not want to do any work, he says. I asked what he meant by 'work', but my child was fuzzy on that detail. My boy would rather stay with his Mama at home and have all of my attention to himself, but of course, that's not how it is supposed to be. I explained that he would have to go to kindergarten before he could move onto the first grade, or any other grade, if he didn't go to kindergarten. Zane will be fine once he gets there and starts a routine. He's just like me--new things freak him out a little, that's all. Zane also told us that he will not be moving out, or ever getting married, because he doesn't want to leave us. And Larry and I were beaming at our son and saying "Awwwww!" but in our heads we were both kind of hoping that he was kidding.
Share some random with me!
