Readers, it’s been five days since my last
confession post. This will read like a Weekend Coffee Share post, except for a) it’s not the weekend (dammit) and b) there is no coffee. Otherwise, there’s all the nice life updates that I like to share.
So, in those five days I’ve accomplished a lot. I watched all six of the Star Wars movies in one day with Little Man and Sam, went to see The Force Awakens again the next day in IMAX 3D. (And, oh glory, this theater had a device to let you see subtitles on the screen! That was my first time ever using such a device, and there was so much that I didn’t hear before! I won’t be able to watch movies any other way in the future.) Not watching Star Wars the last two days feels weird, so maybe it’s time to try The Clone Wars on Netflix.
I’ve done quite a lot of cooking, cleaning, and child rearing, too. I attempted to fix our desktop that crashed several days after updating to Windows 10 (the one with all of the wedding pictures, baby pictures, stories, everything), but the hard drive was fucked so a friend of ours who has a business fixing computers is working to get everything off for us. I also went all “girl power” and tried to put a bench together. I got it 3/4 of the way done and broke a fingernail and had Sam finish it. He found this situation hilarious, but a fingernail that breaks off halfway up hurts like hell!
As you can see (if you view this post outside of the reader), I’ve been messing around with the theme again. It’s a work in progress. I know I change stuff up a lot, but I’m so weird about wanting things a certain way, and it’s hard to find a theme that does that for me. I’m also thinking about changing the URL of this blog, mainly because this one is too long to fit on Twitter and I decided I want the same name both places. Weirdness and all. Any ideas for a new URL? (That’s What She Said is already taken, sigh.) At least this would only be the second time making such a change. So, don’t be surprised if you see a different name pop up in your feed — it’s still me, that black and white floaty head with the aviator shades.
Oh and a piece of great news! Little Man got into the Gifted and Talented program in our county. We found out about this yesterday. He is super excited that he got in, and we are very proud of him. The GT program is held at the same school he attends, but he’ll be going to a class with a group of other GT kids his age from other schools in the county one day each week, and they do all sorts of cool stuff.
So, that’s what I’ve been up to the last few days. I hope y’all are having a nice week. 🙂
