4 year olds are the best!

Little Man just makes me giggle all the time. I thought I'd share a few tidbits of my day.

"Mom, I need milk with my cereal or my eyes will pop out of my head. Hurry, give me milk!!"

"I got it mom, it almost got inside your ear!" (he said that when he was picking up a sticker off the floor.

"I'm so sick off!!!" me giggling quietly "you are what?" him "So SICK OFF!!!" me "oh, I'm sorry buddy, why?" him "Because you want to go to the gym!" I then realized that he meant pissed off, lol.

I have a few pet peeves that I try to control, atleast in front of strangers :P.

One of which is someone touching and or moving my chair. In my math class we have rows of desks/chairs that touch each other front to back. I usually arrive early so I can move my chair up from the one behind it and move the one in front of it up so nothing is touching my chair (not real noticeable, just a few inches). Anyway, last night the girl behind me kept tapping on my chair with her foot. She must've had a song stuck in her head 'cause it had a beat to it.

I was going completely insane. So distracted I couldn't concentrate! I got very close to getting up and moving, lol.

Teacher "2x + 4y = 17 and 3x - 4y = 6 works.....

tap tap tap tap (me "stop doing that, should I move? will it be too rude to ask her to stop? Can I stomp her foot and get away with it?"

Teacher "addition method"......

tap tap, thump thump, tap "knock it off!! I can't stand it! Crap, what did he just say?"

Teacher "equals 6"

tap tap, "dangit!!"

Teacher "or multiply the whole thing by 2 to make it"......

tap thump tap thump thump thump, tap tap...."NOOOO!!!! ahhh...I can't stand it!"

sweet relief, she leaves early!!

Teacher "4x + 6y = 4 and -4x + 2y = 11 which method would work for this system of equations?"

Me "don't ask me, don't ask me, don't ask me" hehe

Fantastic run this morning!

I will be traveling tomorrow during my normal saturday class time so I had to take my class this morning instead. Stu has the day off of work so he was able to take the kids to school for me. I decided to run to class so that he could have the car and I'd get a workout in as well.

The run was fabulous!! Drizzling rain but not huge puddles or showers. Cold but not freezing. Quiet and dark. Just wonderful!! I really needed a run like this, to help remind me of why I enjoy running.

Then I found out that fridays class schedule is a bit different than saturdays, so I had to run for 30 minutes rather than the circuit training I had planned on, lol. Thats ok, I doubled the run I had planned and survived the bordom of being on a treadmill for 30 minutes stairing at a couple of trees out the window.

Pears, pears and more pears!

A lady in our neighborhood has about 50 or so pear trees in her yard, she has been trying to give them away for weeks. I got 2ish bushels of them at the beginning of the week and gave half away, I then decided to pick some more. I think I got 3 bushels this time, oops. I have already canned 20 qts and 7 pints of the pears and am maybe halfway done. Good thing we love pears.

I'm thinking of drying some pears too, we'll see. I may just drive a few blocks away and drop a bag off on random door steps, haha j/k. L's piano teacher said she'd love some, I may take her up on that ;)

Freaking woot!! The season is over!! I have one more day of cleaning at work and I am finished! I'm so excited I could scream :)

I get my evenings back. No more smelling like smoke and grease. No more listening to my psycho boss put everyone down one minute and praise them the next. No more watching him suck up to the owners and general managers while following them around like a lost puppy.

No more dealing with a certain teenage employee that likes to mouth off, and finally on the last day of the season, get his butt whooped by a game spectator, ha.

No more getting yelled at because of high prices, hello!! Everyone has high prices now :P

Oh beautiful day!

Yesterday was cold and wet, not very fun! But today is gorgeous out! I love fall weather :)

And I canned 5 quarts of peaches, I forgot how much I love looking at freshly canned peaches. I can't wait until tomorrow when I get time to can some pears, woohoo!

My job is almost over (have a double header today, sigh)and I couldn't be happier. I've learned a lot about baseball and enjoy it more than I used to, but can't say that I'd pay to go to a game yet, lol.

Allergy season should be winding down soon, atleast I hope so. I'm miserable and so is little man, poor kid.

I am enjoying all three classes this semester, very surprising to me. So that is making it more fun :)

M lost two teeth in about a week! He feels very grown up and much richer :P

L also lost a tooth and is starting the fun hormone stage, wee!

Little Man gets to meet his speech therapist tomorrow, I sure hope he is nicer to her than he was to his last one ;)

Stu got a promotion at work, he is super busy now and seems to be thriving on the change of pace. He is getting to do things that he loves, teach. He is the new education person, so he trains employees and clients, perfect fit for him.

The end.

Talk like a pirate day is coming....

September 19th, arrr!

My pirate name is:

Captain Mary Flint

Even though there's no legal rank on a pirate ship, everyone recognizes you're the one in charge. Like the rock flint, you're hard and sharp. But, also like flint, you're easily chipped, and sparky. Arr!

I'm bossy and controlling, nice ;)
