thanks to inspiration from this homeschooling, produce-growing, fashion-savvy mom, i’m posting in this style today.
number or times that i received a phone call from Julia Roberts this weekend.
i was at work (ahem) and they paged me and said line 6 was Julia Roberts returning my call.
to which i looked at my co-workers (cough) and stated ‘i didn’t call her, but for cryin’-out-loud, how often does this happen? i have to think of something to say!!!!!!’
i woke up.
what a way to start the day.
the time i slept til on Saturday morning.
the kids were at their grandparents house for night, and so….
sleeping in is a treat indeed, and for me, sleeping in, in my own bed under mounds of blankets…blissful.
number of iPhone’s i found sitting at a table unattended at Barnes & Noble’s on Friday night. we went there after our supper out that night, and the couple that was sitting next to us (in the children’s section…what is up with the removal of ALL the plushy chair in B&N??? annoying!) got up and left… soon after they departed i was looking at some books close to their table, and what in the world! there sat a snazzy iPhone next to their rejected pile of books. Tim went and searched for them in the store while i guarded the phone. it started ringing over and over and when Tim came back from his looking, he called the number back. it was the man who’d been sitting there and he was overjoyed we had not run off with his girlfriends phone. kinda fun to be able to help a stranger in that way.
number of Starbuck’s Pumpkin Spice Latte`s i enjoyed over the weekend. not simultaneously; over two days time, silly you!
the age that i am now.
all this coffee-drinking, eating-out, Barnes & Noble-browsing, kids-staying-at-their-grandparents business, was due to the occasion of my birthday yesterday.
number of boxes i received in the mail containing scarves for birthday presents. i was DeLiGtEd with both of them, and wore them both over the weekend.
number of days until my daughters 5th birthday. finally, finally i have a number i can give her for a reference point. ’20 days after mommy’s birthday, and then it’s Ava’s birthday’. you do what works, ya know?
number of fabric softener sheets my husband pulled out of the sleeve of his shirt while standing in JCPenny’s and talking on the phone. someone needs to speak to the lady that does the laundry in this house!
number of minutes until my eldest comes home from school.
there are cookies to bake, supper to start and hmm…all this reminiscing about the weekend has me thinking coffee would be nice about now.
and, this time, if you leave me a comment, would you care to share one of the best things of your weekend?
a good Monday to you!
