I Was Going to Call This, “No, I’m Not Dead”

But then I realized that none of you, not ONE of the three people who read this blog, even bothered to call and find out if I was dead.  How’s that for concern for the gal who doesn’t blog anymore.

Actually, I don’t care and in all reality I’d prefer it if my phone doesn’t ring.  So thank you for not calling.

Moving on-

I was watching the Olympics the other day and (OK, I wasn’t watching the Olympics, I haven’t watched any of the Olympics, not any at all, because I’m a communist) but I was wondering if pot is considered a performance enhancing drug if you’re a snowboarder.  Or a rock climber (although as far as I know that’s not an Olympic sport…)

Speaking of rock climbing, I certified to lead climb about a week ago, which means that I’m allowed to climb above the rope (as opposed to top roping where the rope is always above you).  The problem with climbing above the rope is that if you fall you fall a lot farther (by a lot farther, I mean between 3 and 15 feet -ish) I didn’t think that was a problem but I find now that I’m too scared to climb at all.  This is a problem.

In other news, school is going well.  I had a Bio test last week (by far my easiest class) and rocked it, I just hope that I can do the same for my Phys test (by far, my hardest class) today.  (Did I mention that I’m only taking two classes?  Whatever.)

I went outside and played freeze tag with my kids the other day.  Maybe for some of you that’s about par for the course, but for me that’s the kind of thing I think about doing in a sort of “hey wouldn’t that be cute and fun and good momish of me if I …) but I never actually do it.  But I did it.  (So I’m pretty sure I have the mom of the year thing in the bag, sorry ladies.) The kids thought it was funny and wanted me to be it the whole time so they could see if they were faster than me.  (They’re not on the straightaway and if I had some decent shoes they wouldn’t have as much of an advantage when it came to agility…) The point is I win  mom of the year.

I was doing the bills the other day and I came across a $75.00 charge so I called Sean.  (No, it wasn’t socks.)  See, a week or so before Valentine’s day I sent him an email with a few links to a few necklaces I’d found on Etsy and liked, I thought I’d like to have one and hey, look, Valentine’s day is coming up and blah blah blah…  So I sent the links.  I thought that I had looked and that none of the necklaces were more than about $30, with most in the $20 range.  Apparently I was wrong.  (And the necklace still hasn’t come so I don’t even know yet if it’s worth it.)

Happy Thursday.

    In my defense, I do see you Facebook so I knew you weren’t dead. I like when you blog too though!

    I knew you weren’t dead–your kicking my butt in Scrabble.

    I’m going to be the mother of the future. Or maybe the past because then I wouldn’t actually have to do anything good in the future.

    I hope your necklace arrives and that it is awesome. That’s nice that he picked the most expensive one for you. He loves you $75 worth.

    I don’t have your number or I would have called and checked. (OK, not really, but I have been thinking about you.)

    I think you and I are the only people in the world who haven’t watched any of the Olympics. I’m glad to know it’s because I’m a communist. I thought something might just be wrong with me.

    I, on the other hand, am dead, so I have a good excuse for not calling.
