Thursday 13(Nov 6, 2008) 13 random things.

Today for my Thursday Thirteen post I'll give you a list of 13 totally random things about me or going on in my life or the life of my family.

1) I'm turning 36 years old on Sunday, does this make me old???? normally I would say your only as old as you feel, but since I have been sick for a week, I'm not feeling to hot or young these days.

2) My Princess got her 1st Jr High report card and she got all A's and B's 6-A's and 2-B's and she made honor roll, hummmmmmmm did I tell you all last week she tried out for the 7th grade academic challenge team and she made it??

3) Little Man has two more week of speech therapy then he will be taking a month off and starting again in the new year. I can't get over the fact that just a year ago this month he was hardly talking at all only saying mama and dada and talking at an 18 month old level.. I don't know what level he is talking at now but I would say pretty much at age level.. he has come a long long way.

4) Mr Man's birthday is 9 days and he will be 9 years old.. WOW has he grown.. He is getting to be as tall as me.. where did my baby boy go.. We have his friend party planned, but still working out what to do for his family party with grandparents and such.. I think if it was up to my grandpa they would skip having his birthday party on the 15 and go out on the boat fishing all day which is what they have been doing every Saturday for about 3 months now.

5) speaking of fishing and boats.. since my dad got the boat and has been taking Mr Man and my grandpa fishing every week, Grandpa's health seems better and he seems younger.. ONLY now the crazy man wants to go out and by his own boat so he can take it out on the lake and go fishing every day, and not have to wait for Saturday for my dad to have the day off and take him fishing... We are talking a soon to be(in 8 days) a 76 year old man with a totally bad heart.. wanting to go out in the middle of the lake every day to fish.. I guess if it makes him happy, but I just don't get it.. LOL

6) The Elementary school a few weeks ago had fire prevention week and in Art class all the kids made posters I guess and the winning posters got taken to the fire department to hang on the walls for all the fireman to enjoy.. I didn't know they were doing this until Sweet Pea came home with this award.
7) The kids and I were out front raking leaves yesterday afternoon(wed) and this Teenager who thought he was so cool came walking by just staring into our yard and looking at my McCain/Palin yard signs.. and it took the boy a few minutes to say anything and the best he could come up with was "you need to take the those signs down while your at it" he said it in such a smug and snotty way.. I just looked up and smiled and so pleasantly said, "Oh NO, I'm keeping them up for the next 4 years" LOL LOL.. poor kid looked at me like I was being totally honest and he kept on walking and when he got in front of my neighbors yard He turned around and said to me "really, 4 years, I don't know if McCain will run again, maybe Palin but then you will need news signs" SNORT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Poor poor slow boy.. guess my humor was lost on him.. LOL at that point Mr Man said.. goodness it took him that long to come up with that.(meaning having to walk all the way past my house across the street and then into the neighbors yard all the while thinking about me keeping those signs in my yard for 4 years) LOL LOL..
8) I have been working for over a week trying to sort out the kids cloths, what fits, what doesn't, do we reallying need 50 shirts for one kid per season.. sort of stuff, then what will I hang on to for Sweet Pea and Little Man to grow into and what will good will or the clothing bank end up with.. I'm so sick of cloths and I now know(as if I didn't know before) my kids have too many cloths.. Yet what does Princess want for Christmas.. Cloths!!!!!!!!!!!!! ugh..

9) I need to go to the BMV and get the tags renewed for the car since it is in my name and my birthday is Sunday.. UGH.. I forgot about that, I hate doing that each year..

10) Tonight(Thursday) I have 3 parent teacher conferences.. one at the Jr High, and two at the elementary school... the times are 5pm, 6pm and 6:30pm.. thankfully they didn't overlap.. but goodness that is alot of talking with teachers for one night

11) Sweet Pea got bit by some bug out playing Wednesday night and it is infected and all read and swollen.. she also is about ready to lose a tooth and it is driving her nuts because it keep bleeding but she wont pull it.

12)Sweet Pea also got her report card and got all A's and E's

13)Mr Man got his report card also and got all A's and one B. and also some E's(that whole elementary E, S and U thing)
So there you have it my 13 random things for today's Thursday 13.

I'm 2 years and 2 days older than you are, so am staying away from the 'does this make me old?' question... :)

Congrats on Princess' report card, Little Man's speech, Mr. Man's birthday, and Sweet Pea's winning poster!

Carol VR said...

At first I thought...A's and E's...that's a wide range. But then I realized you were speaking of E's for EXCELLENT!!!

Great job to all!!!

Lisa@verybusymomwith4 said...

I am whole year older than you :)

I guess you'll need a lot of coffee for those conferences ;)

Courtney said...

Sounds busy and although they were random facts you should have called them random and interesting.

Jean said...

I'm still kind of laughing about the kid trying to think of a come back for your sign.
God Bless The U.S.A. and our freedom of speech to put up the sign (leave it up for 4 years if you wanted) and allow the come back kid to have an opinion about your sign. :)

Happy Birthday!!! You're not going to be old!!!! I've got 5 years on you and I'm a spring chicken.

Nicholas said...

Happy Birthday! And don't you even dare say that 36 is old!

Alice Audrey said...

There is so much my kids do at school that I knew nothing about until after the fact. I've tried volunteering, but I still end up out of the loop.

marky said...

you are not old!!
that E's thing on a report card is weird..I remember when E meant Failing!
in our school BB means below basic which is like a D or something like that?
I guess we try to figure out how many letters we can use to say the same thing???
congrats on the awards..

Kristi said...

I can't imagine three conferences in one day. I supposed it would be nice to get them all over with. I had Noah's today and I have to wait until next week for Aaron's.

Jen said...

Wow, you are busy! COngrats on the good grades on the report card. Fun that you have b-days close together to Mr. Man!

Happy Birthday this Sunday!! I know it's early, I just may be taking my computer in tomorrow and not sure if I'll have it back in time :)
