Ok, here are some random Friday thoughts for you about my upcoming weekend!
1) I am very much not looking forward to having to get up at 7 am on a Saturday to trot two kids all over creation for their soccer games, both of which are at 9 am, on two different sides of Lewisville. I thought this whole "soccer mom" thing would be cool, but alas, it's not my scene. I don't see myself making shirts of my kids' teams, or purchasing uber expensive coordinating folding chairs to match my kids' team colors. And I spend most of the time chasing after or entertaining a two year old, so I very rarely get to see a shot they make, if any.
Do any of you like being soccer moms?
2) This weekend (actually last weekend) marks the beginning of a long line of busy weekends for our family. The next time we will have a plan-free, kid-free weekend is in five weeks, hopefully we can do something fun for our anniversary! 3 years, baby!
Do any of you feel like you spend all of your time being busy?
3) I switched our Netflix subscription back to streaming only, instead of streaming+dvd, because I realized I have had the same movie for the last five months, not even kidding. And, I forgot to send it back in time, so we now proudly own The Ides of March. Maybe this weekend we will actually watch it and get our $15 worth we got charged for it for not returning it in time. Is it good? I mean, is it $15 good? Anyone interesting in checking it out from the Whitehead DVD library?
4) Hopefully, it will work out that my sister Brooke and I will get some adult, girl alone time this evening and go out to dinner. I need it, man! Kids are driving me bonkers. And I would like to go somewhere COOL, not just somewhere close and easy. Don't you ever feel like even when you go out places, it still is only places that are convenient? I feel like I need to inconvenience myself once in a while and go somewhere I've never been. Maybe in 16 years, when Avery moves out.
5) I was introduced to someone at our company today, the VP actually, as the "adobe expert." 15 years ago, if I thought I would ever know enough about Adobe to be introduced as an "expert," I think I would have jumped off a cliff. Especially since it sounds so boring, next to my 18 year old dream of being "married to someone rich so I didn't have to work." Yeah. Well, it's nice to be an expert at something!!
