Friday! Wheeeee!

1 Oct

Things I love about today:

  1. It’s not yesterday.  Or any other day from this week, for that matter.  It’s not that this week has really been all that bad; I’m just very ready for it to be over.  Thank you, very much.  
  2. Of course, there is the obvious point, which is that Friday is the gateway to the weekend.  The day where we can cut ourselves a little slack because it’s the end of the week, and we should just get credit for making it this far.  The day where the awesomeness that is the weekend can begin!  Unless you have to work this weekend.  In which case, Friday is just a sad reminder that there is no awesomeness for you.  Sorry.  
  3. We no longer have multiple green (and sometimes yellow and red) blobs taking aim at our city on The Weather Channel.  We’ve had more than our share of rain lately.  The sun is shining!  It’s not 90 degrees!  I love you, sun, please stay.  Screw what they say about the whole rotation of the planet and seasons changing, blah, blah, blah.  How about you just stick around a lot more, what do you say?  I’ll make you cookies? 
  4. Hubby has the day off today.  Which means that there is a very good chance he’ll feel inclined to clean the kitchen, or do laundry, or fix dinner.  Because he’s awesome like that.  It might even be ready when I get home.  Did I mention he’s awesome? (Oh crap.  I’ve probably jinxed it and he probably got called into work and my messy kitchen is probably still messy and I’ll have to actually DO SOMETHING when I get home tonight.)
  5. I had 12 views on my blog yesterday!  12!!!   And no, I didn’t check in from 12 different computers.  I can thank my buddy over at paralegal hell for the traffic.  And……drum roll…..OMG…somebody actually searched “Momalegal” today!  Is that not freakin’ great, or what?  That’s actually very exciting for me, seeing as I only had, like, 2 friends reading my blog not long ago, and a little bit weird, too.     

Aaaanndddd….that’s about all I can come up with.  What I dislike about today is that it was really dark this morning when I got up.  I’m not ready for winter yet, with all it’s darkness and coldness.  And I am CERTAINLY not ready to pay the heating bill. 

I also dislike that I had to come back from a perfectly pleasant lunch outside on a patio, to my squalid little office, stacked high with paper (I’m a piler, remember?) and boring, vanilla colored walls without windows.   Actually, it may be a good thing that I don’t have a window today.  That would just seem like torture. 

This morning in the car, Mr. T says out of the blue, “Mommy, I don’t like coffee.”   Um, okay, he’s never had coffee, but whatever.  Way to take a stand, son.  Then he says, “I like tea.  Tea makes me feel good.”   As far as I know, he’s never had tea either, iced or otherwise.  3 seems a little young to be taking a position on the whole coffee vs. tea issue, but maybe he’ll be a tea tycoon when he grows up?  That reminds me, when he was about 2 he would hear the buzzer go off on my coffeemaker and say, “Mommy, foffee!  Foffee is ready!”  It was the Most. Adorable. Thing. EVER. and I hate that I don’t have that on video or something.

      Awww, thanks! And why wouldn’t I admit to reading your blog? You’re awesome, but of course, you already knew that! Ha! 😉

    I agree about the Friday bit and weather bit. Friday is ALWAYS my most favorite work day…unless I happen to have it off and then Thursday is my most favorite work day. I’m STILL a big supporter of the 3 day weekend, alas, I have not been able to get this approved through the powers-that-be.

    The weather gods have FINALLY taken pity on me and my pathetic pleas of “I can’t breathe…take the humidity and heat away” because it has been NICE the past 2 or 3 days. I hope it lasts! I hate Florida summers!

    You didn’t jinx hubby, did you?

    The coffee/tea thing cracks me up. Spewing opinions without even trying the stuff out? What are you teaching him? HAHA!

    That person that searched for you was ME! So glad to have found you! Love reading your comments on PH and now I can check in on your blog too!

      Awesome, thanks for stopping by! My first “Googler”! (That REALLY doesn’t sound right.) Isn’t it great that PH has brought lots of us paralegals together? I wonder if she ever envisioned that!?

        I love my daily dose of PH. Paralegal is most of us on a daily basis. The wacko clients; the unreasonable, demanding Boss; and the self-oriented Associate who thinks Paralegal is another word for slave and/or garbage collector.

        Your take on parenting is awsome! My two are 17 and 19, but I do remember the daycare runs, the crazy kid version stories and the sweet little phrases they come up with (one of my kiddos put on “shocks and shoes”). Those points of madness during have become such good memories now.
