What better than random thoughts on a Monday?

  • I wish I could get Mac to read. Okay, I really wish I could get Mac to do anything but he is in the mode of "summer before senior year and I'm the laziest person on the planet" mode instead. I wish he would read a book for pleasure or work on his college applications or something. I wish he was young enough to do what I told him to do without arguing.
  • I have a pair of shoes I hate. I actually have several pairs. In reality, this particular pair looks like leather but is really plastic and stick to the tops and bottoms of my feet when I wear them. They hurt my feet and toes. And they're ugly. I threw them away yesterday. I haven't parted with shoes voluntarily for years. I really wish I had a comfy pair of summer shoes, a nice black or brown sandal that I could wear but mostly I have heels and flip-flops. Ah, shoe issues.
  • ITSam has his son this weekend and all of this coming week. He's 11, and he's really good at it. I think he likes me but he's really a young 11 years old so while he likes me, I'm learning to adapt to him. That doesn't sound very nice, does it? Well, since I'm not above bribery, I'm going to fix spaghetti for dinner one night this week since it's one of his favorite foods. Way to a man's heart is through his stomach. Does that go for little boys, too?
  • I'm so sick of movies because I'm showing them twice a day at Alcatraz. I don't mind going to the theater but watching DVDs is driving me to tears. But ITSam and I are trying to save money so it's cheap entertainment and easy to do with with each other and our kids. After this summer class I don't care if I ever see another DVD again.
  • This weekend I played Monopoly with Jack and ITSam. I lost. I always lose at Monopoly- always. Because I was behind and was going to get my butt royally kicked again, I teamed up with Jack so he could beat his father. And he did. We bonded. That's good, right?
And I have so dubbed ITSam's son Jack. I like the name. No other reason. His nickname is Spud but I just couldn't go there.

I like the name Jack too. It is a name for people who will accomplish great things. :)

Same son problem. I know you understand. "Why do it now, when you can put it off till...oh, next year?" I can't believe you saying you're sick of movies. Yes food works on all age guys and bonding is very good.

I like your random thoughts.

Mine for today is naptime is wonderful. My 6 year old is tired from the two parties this weekend. All the brothers and sisters are gone today.. and so now he is sleeping almost 2 hours. I love the quiet.
