Since it is my duty to chronicle my life and inform you about my own stupidity, wacky projects and mundane happenings, I feel compelled to share the following with you.
- Wacky Project. I have decided to reassemble and build all the Lego sets that the Little One has ever received. Keep in mind that, for the most part, the sets are scattered all over the place in the very big Lego pile that we have. (However, the Legos are sorted by color now … thanks to several hours of effort on my part.) So far, I’ve managed to put together six different sets. Only 15 or 20 to go! (Considering the cost of Lego sets, I’m realizing that we may have his entire college tuition in Lego sets!!)
- My Stupidity. I thought flash mobs only did dancing. Mr. Jenners was telling me about a flash mob that attacked a man near where he works. And I naively said, “They attacked him with their dancing???!!!” Duh.
Cold Stone Creamery. Why did I never feel compelled to explore this ice cream concept before our recent trip to Montana? Ice cream … mixed with all the stuff you want. Brilliant!! I’m converted!
Swimming Is Freakin’ Hard. This summer, we joined the township pool for the first time. Mr. Jenners and I have been trying to “swim laps” when we visit. (I put “swim laps” in quotes because we count one length of the pool as a lap and end each lap by hanging on the end of the pool and gasping for breath.) Swimming kicks my butt.
