“What did I learn the past few days?”
About myself: I learned I’m not an appliance repair person. When the dishwasher backs up, it’s time to call the pros. Computer troubleshooting skills don’t translate to Mr. Handyman.
About my daughter: She likes to bite her classmates hands because she’s in the middle of a growth spurt and teething. I keep telling her to bite her own hand instead of her friends. Oddly she won’t bite me, but bites Mrs. Lessinges.
About suction cups: they can really be a bitch when feeling uncooperative. I installed a sunscreen in the rear window of our Subaru to block the bright sun rays. The suction cups don’t feel like obliging.
About my wife: she’s very forgiving, even after she’s had snot rubbed on her black dress right before walking out the door for work. I didn’t blow snot on her, our little one prefers to rub her nose in clothing instead of a paper tissue.
About my daughter: put an object in my daughter’s right hand and she’ll hit said object against the nearest solid object. Put an item in her left hand and she’ll will throw said object nearly 100% of the time. We might have a lefty in the making.
About my wife’s former employer: Starbucks will close 600 stores nationwide over the next year. This means 12,000 jobs will be lost and most certainly layoffs in the corporate office. The sad feelings about this news caught me by surprise. We obviously have many friends who work there and we wish them all the best.
About Wii: The Wii Fit is nearly impossible to find. I’ve tried a handful of times to track it down. I nearly had one on Sunday morning at Target, but was five people too late. Damn those early birds. I did purchase Mario Kart for the Wii instead and it’s a hoot. Back to the Wii Fit, I’m tempted to use my former Nintendo ties to track down a Wii Fit.
About B vitamins: bright yellow (more of a refresher course)
About parenting: getting sleep is key for survival.
About reality tv show contestants from Seattle: Last year we had Blake Lewis on American Idol. This year we have Jason on The Bachelorette. Will Jason finish on top (I went there) unlike Mr. Lewis? Stay tuned for next Monday’s most exciting rose ceremony.
About me: I’m horrible about going to bed when I’m completely tired
