Things are looking up and other assorted musings

30 Nov

Well, at least I got rid of my cold anyway.  I gave it to poor Hubby who came home early last Tuesday feeling like something the cat wharfed up.  But I don’t feel too bad for him – after a trip to the doc, he came back with prescription cough medicine (lucky bastard) and had a week off between sick days and the holiday.  He was a lot better in a day or two.  I feel like I’m totally going to jinx myself saying this but, somehow, someway, Mr. T didn’t get it.  I have no idea how that happened, but I’m thanking all of my lucky stars, and maybe some not so lucky ones, too. 

Jr. High Lawfirm still isn’t any better, but if people are going to behave that way, then I’m totally fine with them not speaking to me.  Saves me the hassle of telling them to go play hopscotch on the interstate.  Why do some people have nothing better to do than drum up drama?  Really, take up scrapbooking for something, for crying out loud.  I’m up to my eyeballs in medical records in the Case From Hell, but I’ve about got that file eating out of the palm of my hand.   Other than that, it’s been eerily quiet at the office so far this week.  Which is usually a sure sign that something is going to hit the fan soon.  I’m so optimistic, right? 

How is that you can have an entire week off, but because of a holiday feel even more tired than before?  Seriously, if it wasn’t for the fact that I’m not in the least bit ready for Christmas, I would already be counting down the days until my next day off.   And how the hell did it get to be almost Christmas, anyway?  I’m tired of saying “I can’t believe it’s ____ already.”  I’m convinced that as soon as I utter those words, time speeds up just to screw with me. 

You know what’s hilarious?  Watching in the rear view mirror as the person behind you has a conniption fit because they haven’t figured out that everybody is going 25 mph because it’s a SCHOOL ZONE.  Honking the horn and gesturing wildly without bothering to notice why everyone is going the same excruciatingly slow speed only makes you look like a total jackhole.  I would have gone slower just to screw with her but I was too busy laughing and watching my mirror.    Of course, my 3 year old doesn’t miss a thing.  He repeatedly asked what the honking was about, and how do you nicely explain that someone is just being a douche? 

Oh, and entertainment in the car tonight courtesy of Mr. T:   “I’m Superman!”  Me: “Oh really?  Superman, huh?”  T: “Yeah, I’m Superman.  (in a very serious, tough sounding voice)  Don’t mess me up!”  Me: “Do you mean ‘Don’t mess with me?'”    Yesterday he told us he was concentrated at school.  I have no idea what he meant by that, or how he learned that word, I was just totally amused that he knew the word “concentrated.”   I also wasn’t lying when I said my kid might read before he is potty trained.  He sounded out all the letters on the Petsmart can lid this weekend.  I’m sure we wont’ be able to get away with spelling P-I-Z-Z-A for long before he figures out what we’re talking about.  His teachers have assured me that he will go potty soon, and that he’s just resisting now because he knows I want him to.   *sigh*  I guess I should start talking about how awesome Pull Ups are?  I know I should be able to outsmart a 3 year old, but it’s proving easier said than done. 

I hope everybody had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

    Traffic cracks me up all the time. I barely drive 5 miles an hour over the speed limit, and people like to zoom around me like I’m the *biggest* inconvenience to their day. Seriously? If *you* have money for a ticket, knock yourself out, but there is nowhere I have to be that’s going to make me speed and drive like a maniac.

    If I’m approaching a red light, I coast. Pisses people off! I guess I’m supposed to waste gas to hurry up and STOP. And then when the light turns green, I think I’m supposed to pretend that I’m on a drag strip and see just how fast I can get to the next light. It’s unbelievable, really. (Pathetic and sad is more like it.)

    I ignore them all. I turn up my music, settle back in my seat, open the moon roof and thank heavens that *my* life is more laid back and happier than theirs.

    Glad you’re feeling better! 🙂
