You probably won’t believe this, but I’ve been trying for several days now to write a post about Facebook. The unfinished post goes from sarcastic to serious to nostalgic to whiney. And then it just goes on and on and makes no sense. It’s a little like Facebook, I suppose.
Well, I finally decided I better just write a post about something else. I feel like I can’t get my day going until I just write something! Seriously, you can only look at those photos of my kids’ teeth for so many days until you decide to leave and never come back.
I have so much going on in my life right now that my head is completely muddled with a million different thoughts. I can’t really unleash all the craziness that would like to leap onto the page of my blog.
So, in the interim, I offer you a list. I was going to call it “things I’ve learned this week” but it isn’t even that. It’s just a random collection of thoughts swirling in my brain.
1. My prescription for Nasonex cost $80. Doesn’t that seem ridiculous?
2. Thankfully, Meijer fills prescriptions for Amoxicillin for free. And since we needed three of those this week, that saved us $45 at the pharmacy.
3. It’s impossible to buy a chocolate Easter bunny that wasn’t made in a plant with peanuts. Why don’t I ever plan in advance that I need to get some melting chocolate and make one instead of spending three hours driving from store to store reading labels?
4. Kids who have eaten Easter bunnies know that consuming the low-quality chocolate is barely even worth the effort to rip off the bunny’s ears. But when a child has never had one, it becomes the most longed-for object on the face of the planet. Life is just like that, isn’t it?
5. I used to be really good at the game Memory. Now, my 4-year-old daughter sneaks her matches onto my pile so I don’t feel as bad about her margin of victory. “We can help each other!” she explains when I catch her putting her pairs onto my pile.
6. It really doesn’t matter when the tax deadline is. I will wait until that day to file my taxes. I kind of wish they would move it up to February. That would save me a good two months of agonizing over my bookkeeping.
7. My assignment was simple. “Can you send an object to school with your child that begins with the letter C? Please send this object in a paper bag. Sign this paper and return it to school with your child if you can participate. Do not sign the paper if you are not able to do this.” I signed the paper. When I picked up my child from kindergarten, he hopped in the car and said, “It’s OK, Mom. We can bring the C item tomorrow.” Oh no. I signed the paper and then I forgot. Do you think more games of Memory might help?
How about you? Do you have any random thoughts you would like to share? Oh, come on! I need a laugh.
