Mommy's Idea

I'm finally in my new office this week. My job so far has been awesome, awesome, awesome. It's so great to be working on something that I actually care about.

I'm thinking that I might want to go back into teaching again next fall. I'm really starting to miss it. I'm going to ask for one class a quarter at the community college branch and I'd like to propose a class on sociology and health. That or teach Sociology of the Family again. Either way. The sociological part of my brain is still just so amazed at the vintage sexist ads I posted the other day. If you didn't get a chance to see it, go there now. It will make you so happy that you're not stuck in that generation.

Speaking of stereotyping female behavior, last night I was cleaning up the kitchen and Charlie was playing with some spoons. Suddenly things got quiet. You know, that toddler quiet when you just know that nothing good is going on? Well, I turned around to find him drinking water out of the cat bowl. With a spoon. At least he uses a utensil, right? Ew.

Charlie said his first full sentence the other day. "Big truck says 'honk.'" He's talking up a storm these days, unless someone is on the phone wanting to hear it.

Ben & Jerry's have a new flavor called Bonnaroo Buzz. It sounds absofreakinglutely amazing, but it's another one of those "Scoop Shop Only" flavors. Why do all of the good ones have to be 60+ miles away?

Still no pull-ups. They look deceptively easy. I went down to the basement the other day and really thought I would be able to do one. Not so much. Maybe soon, I feel like I'm getting closer.

I have become re-addicted to reruns of The Office. Our local rerun channel just started over at the pilot episode last week. I forgot how awesome those early episodes were and how cheesy the Michael Scott character started out, with the slicked back hair and everything.

One of my favorite quotes from the pilot episode was courtesy of Michael Scott.

People I respect... heroes of mine would be, Bob Hope. Umm, Abraham Lincoln definitely. Bono... and probably God would be the fourth one. And I just think, all those people helped, the world in so many ways that it's umm really beyond words. It's incalcucable.

Oh, and I had somehow forgotten what a hottie Jim was in the early episodes! Not that he's still pretty awesome, but something about younger Jim.... Sigh.


  1. LOL @ him drinking out of the cat bowl with a spoon. So polite!

  2. OH MY GOD that Ben & Jerry's flavor sounds amazing.

  3. I agree about younger Jim!! I haven't watched this season...I feel like it's just not as funny as it was in the beginning!

  4. He could be eating dog food- with a fork!

    I haven't had that flavor ice cream!

    Visiting from Friday Frags- have a great weekend!
