Just a few random thoughts for the week.
One, as of today, my oldest daughter is in high school. Crazy. I don't believe I'm the mom of a high school student. I swear she was just a tiny baby yesterday. If I were a mom who liked to embarrass my kids, now would be the time where I would post cute little naked-bottom pictures of her. Wait, I am a mom who likes to embarrass my kids. But, she refrained from posting a picture on facebook yesterday of me looking like a weirdo, so I will refrain as well. If we start getting all crazy with posting pictures, this could end very badly for me.
Second, I was driving my car last week.......well, let me start a little earlier. I got a new cell phone recently and in so doing haven't yet transferred all my songs from iTunes onto my new phone. I happen to have one song on my phone that I downloaded and used for a girls' camp skit. So no joke, I was in the car the other day by myself, minding my own business. I had been driving for at least five minutes, when my car decided it was going to start playing the one and only song on my phone--the theme music to The Twilight Zone. It scared the crap out of me. It took me a few seconds to realize where the music was coming from too and that freaked me out even more. It felt like the scene in a scary movie right before some masked man popped up from the back seat wielding a knife. It obviously wasn't, but I am very suspicious of my car and its intentions now. I think we may be enemies.
Lastly, now that the kids are back in school, I declare this to be the week of writing. I have a deadline looming. I'm excited though because I finally (FINALLY) know which story I'm going to write and I can't wait to get into it.
Well I'm happy the song didn't lead to an accident or something!ReplyDelete
Me too! :)Delete
Haha, I love it! I can totally picture you freaking out. And that song...I think you may face a formidable enemy in your car. Perhaps you should try to win it over with a new air freshener or something? ;)ReplyDelete
Who wouldn't freak out?? Who wouldn't? :) (Okay, fine, maybe I'm the only one, but it was scary!!)Delete
I will take your gift giving advice and get on it immediately.
So, you had your daughter at ten then, right? :DReplyDelete
If I randomly heard the Twilight Zone theme in my car, I'd be freaked out too. I concur with J. R., you do not want the car as an enemy. Make amends. :)
Well, I was eleven, but who's counting. ;)Delete
And yes, I think my car is getting back at me for not cleaning it lately. It's a mess.
Wait, what? What are you writing??ReplyDelete
Mua ha ha ha. Something good. :) I'm working on contemporary #2. I'm kind of loving it right now.Delete
Ha! The Twilight Zone thing was hilarious. A good imagination can be a very difficult thing, can't it? Good luck with your writing week!ReplyDelete
