Friday Night Randomness

So I've been told that I've been a bit cranky lately, at times spiteful. I agree that I have been a bit off center. I do still have my sense of humor though. I promise it's still there even though at times it might not appear to be. So that being said, here are a few random thoughts for you.

This week, I have been busy filling out candy grams for a PTA fundraiser. I'm so sick of suckers and hearts. It was interesting deciphering the order forms. The funniest one we got was from a 5th grader who ordered three candy grams and sent in $11. She had a note attached to her order form that said, please make change. Since this was the child of someone I know well, I called my friend up and asked her if she could ask her daughter why she sent in a $10 bill and a $1 bill for three candy grams. Her very serious explanation to her mother was that the $1 bill was for one candy gram and the $10 bill was for the other two and could I make sure I sent back her change. We all had a good giggle over this logic.

Yesterday I had lunch with a friend who is home from Iraq. We had a great time chatting, maybe a little too great a time since we were at the restaurant for over 3 hours. When we walked out of the restaurant, I had the door open and an older couple walked in. They were pretty much all the way in when I released the door. I thought the door would close slower and when I realized it was going faster then I thought I tried to catch it but not before it tapped the lady. If looks could kill I would not be typing this entry. I even apologized but seriously if looks could kill.

I was having a conversation with an Air Force wife earlier today. She told me I was lucky that my husband got to come home in the middle of his deployment. She said it sucked for her because her husband was gone for four months straight with no break. I'm just going to leave that one alone.

I'm a difficult parent. I get that look when I walk into Michael's middle school. If sticking up for my kid when someone is treating him with disrespect just because they are an adult and think they have the right makes me a "difficult parent" I'll gladly wear that title.

It's the little things in life that make me happy. I finally remembered to call in the work order to have my carport light fixed. Every time I drove into it at night, I had images of being mugged next to my own house flash through my mind. Now it's fixed and it makes me smile every time it comes on when I drive up.

I love fruit roll-ups. I wish I could find some that didn't have some crazy design on them. I still eat them, crazy design and all but I just want a plain fruit roll-up.

I was buying the 792 suckers for our candy grams at the store the other day. The guy behind me asked me if I was doing some kind of special event. I told him no, I just loved these special suckers that only got sold around Valentine's Day, so I stock up every year so I can have two a day until the next year. I think he believed me.

I can't wait for Tuesday when I can buy High School Musical 3!

Okay, that's enough randomness. Sweet Dreams!

They have some really good ones at Costco, well there not exactly fruit roll ups, there more fruit leather, but not too thick fruit leather, if you know what I mean.

and I find that people here are shocked when you stick up for your kids, especially at school, what's up with that?

Oh, and what size did you want those blankets? I know it has been said a million times, but since my hubby has been gone for 9 months and I haven't seen him I'm a little scatterbrained,

and I love you but I'm a little scared to make you angry or get on your bad side.......

4 months without him? oh no, now I know why no one wants to join the airforce, and there enlistment bonuses are so high. everyone start lining up to join the army now.

All I can say about the wife with the nerve to tell that you were lucky to have him come home after nine months cause she had to go 4 without hers is.... "some people's children".... ugh! Anyways!

I love the sucker thing. LOL!
