Midday Coffee Break

Happy Monday!! I am literally taking this Labor day off! It feels SO good. I had to work both Saturday and Sunday, which was a drag – especially considering that our office building was sans air conditioning on a very hot weekend! Talk about torture!

I am planning on taking the kids to either a movie or to dinner. Maybe drive on over to Orange County and spend some time with Erika and Papi Blez.

What do you have planned today?

What else is going on?

  1. I showered…

    but I refuse to 1) change into actual clothes 2) wear makeup or 3) do my hair. Which pretty well equates to laying around ALL DAY. yay!

    • I showered

      and put on actual clothes, but so far no makeup and my hair is just pulled up into a big clip.  No need for makeup and hair styling to watch great tennis on TV.

  2. Not much

    I made no plan for the day, but have been keeping busy.  I worked on some writing, printed out some articles I need to read, ran some laundry, etc.  Right now the boys have a friend over and they are deep into some serious secret agent play.  Husband has his laptop hooked up to a keyboard and is writing/recording music into wave files.  All around VERY lazy day around here.  Loving it!

    • Tackled one bedroom this morning-

      the worst one- and will do the other this afternoon.  Slept in and then took a nap (HEAVEN!) and am letting my kids have a bit too much screen time.  Figuring on forcing them outside this afternoon with a choice between helping me clean or going outside.

  3. for those following the US open

    how exciting was that match that Oudin just won? Fabulous to see a 17 year old American make it to the quarter finals.

    great day to be lazy and watch tennis.

  4. Just read the President’s remarks

    Awfully hard to see where anyone could get real fired up about it.  Talk about anticlimatic- he never even tells the kids where to pick up their new copies of the Communist Manifesto.  I did like this part, though:

    But at the end of the day, the circumstances of your life – what you look like, where you come from, how much money you have, what you’ve got going on at home – that’s no excuse for neglecting your homework or having a bad attitude. That’s no excuse for talking back to your teacher, or cutting class, or dropping out of school. That’s no excuse for not trying.

    Ack!  Personal responsibility?  What’s the world coming to?

    • Seriously,

      the birther-teabag-Obama’s-a-socialist-who-wants-to-kill-grandma crowd is probably offended because minority children might actually be encouraged by Obama’s speech.  Heaven forbid.

    • thanks for the link

      What a nice speech. I emailed this paragraph to my son:

      No one’s born being good at things, you become good at things through hard work. You’re not a varsity athlete the first time you play a new sport. You don’t hit every note the first time you sing a song. You’ve got to practice. It’s the same with your schoolwork. You might have to do a math problem a few times before you get it right, or read something a few times before you understand it, or do a few drafts of a paper before it’s good enough to hand in.

      I am going to have to go back and read a little more closely to find out where Obama is haranguing students to support his “agenda.”

    • got an email on Friday

      from the superintendent of our school district.  They have made an across-the-board decision to not show the speech in any of their schools (5 elem, 1 junior high, 1 high school).

      I am so burned by this, and just disappointed in them.  The text of the speech hadn’t even been released when they made this decision.  What cowards.

  5. Happy happy tippity tap dance….

    I’ve got two kids in school today…and it’s not a work day!!! What do I do with myself? I’m all a flutter like I have a hot date….

    I’m either really really sad or an object of envy. I suspect it depends on whether or not you currently have small children. :)
