Random Friday Thoughts

1 – Yesterday, as I was pulling out of the parking lot of my office building, I noticed that the car in front of me had a vanity license plate. It said “Sweti” which I think was supposed to mean “Sweetie” but really ends up looking like “Sweaty.” Methinks the driver of said car didn’t necessarily think that idea through quite enough.

2 – My knee makes this really gross crinkle crackle noise when I bend it. It’s done that for a really long time, like over a year, but is only just now starting to hurt. Everyone that’s heard it seems to think I need to go to the doctor. I think I’ll take some flaxseed oil and glucosamine and see what’s what. I probably shouldn’t start training for that half marathon I want to run either. It’s only one little knee, right? I have another one!

3 – Violet is quickly becoming the most argumentative member of our household. I swear, I could say “The sky is blue” and she would argue with me about how wrong I am. This is very annoying to someone like me who clearly knows everything about everything. She’s also starting to act all angsty all the time, which is also fun. I do not really like this age, I must say. Nope, not at all.

4 – I am now annoyed because Mr. Chick just called me and is going to be working late tonight executing a search warrant, when we are supposed to be out buying a grill. This might not seem like a big deal, but we are hosting a cookout tomorrow and I threw our old grill away yesterday. Stupid criminals are cramping my style. Quit stealing and get a job, jeez.

5 – I got an email from Lily’s teacher today. Apparently, there is a head lice outbreak in the 3rd grade. A head lice check is an excellent way to start the weekend. I’m looking forward to it immensely. I’m choosing to look on the bright side and be happy that at least there's no soccer tournament this weekend.

Lovely weekend wishes to all!


  1. 1. I thought "Sweaty" too
    2. Careful with those knees
    3. Angst and DRAMA! I am right there with you. I say we run away and leave no forwarding address!
    4. Stupid crooks!
    5. Eeeew lice. Hopefully she won't get it.

  2. I was thinking Sweti Balls - from a Christmas Saturday Night Live skit with Alec Baldwin... I have a 13 year old daughter and the drama is driving me in sane... never seen lice and hope I never do - I enjoyed visiting you today - I'll be back. You have a new follower.
    Love to you.

  3. I was thinking sweaty when I saw that...but then again, I am always sweaty...maybe I should get one that says STNKY??

  4. I would think Sweaty too. Yuck.

    I hope you also have a great weekend!

  5. I'd absolutely read it as sweaty. Not a well-played maneuver there.

    Lee hollered at all of us to come see ya so here we are! :)

  6. Sweaty was my first thought. I have two bad knees though usually only one at a time. I took glucosamine for years and swore by it, until I ran out and didn't notice it hurting. I've been off it for three or four months now and still no pain. It doesn't hurt that in that time I moved my office downstairs and no longer go up and down the steps 300 times each day to let the dog out, in, break up fights, get this, get that, etc...Basically I have decided the glucosamine is a placebo. Watch, my knee goes out tomorrow.

  7. 1. I love lists (except when I have to make them for my blog)
    2. You find the answer to the creaky knees you may have yourself a goldmine. Let me know if you need a silent partner.
    3. Love the name Violet...and my 21 month old is getting all angsty on me too. WTF child?
    4. My Hubs' busy season just started which means he doesn't get home until almost 9 and he wants the Madpie to stay up for him. He needs to be kicked in his sweetspot.
    5. Eww.

    Love your voice!


Like every blogger in the universe, I love me some comments. I promise I read and appreciate every single one. I swear! And, if you have a blog, I visit and leave comments in return...I'm good at the reciprocal comments. I'm not, however, good at replying directly back or responding back within the same comment thread. But I will reciprocate your comments, I swear!
