FLIBBERS FLOOBERS FRIDDERS DAY.
My nose always itches when I run the kitchen sink water.
Isn’t that weird? Always.
I’ll be gearing up to tackle the dishes, completely fine, itch free, and then I flip the water on, and as soon as the water + soap touches my hands and begins to lather, my nose itches like a 5th grader with chicken pox. Every time!
I don’t get it.
Why is that? Does it have something to do with the centrifugal force of Jupiter’s 12 moons plus the inertia of the water pressure competing with the compounding particles of wisping nose hairs and its surrounding environment divided by the downfall of humanity? Is that it?
Does this happen to you? Or something like it? Do I need a new nose?
Alright, it’s time me for to plan the three-day road trip busy bag extravaganza. We leave for Oregon this EXACT MOMENT (!!!) a week from today, and I need to wrap my head around them.
I can tell you what, I’m not making the same mistake I made last year. And that IS – zero crayons. Only colored pencils. And only six per child. That = only 12 for me to pick up every 30 seconds. I can deal with that.
I did order two of these for the trip. Which I know you’re thinking, “Well if you ordered those you don’t need the pencils, ding a ling!” But I do, you see. My kids obsess over notepads. So this will just mean variety for them. Some hours they’ll notepad it, and others they’ll tablet it. THIS NOGGIN IS ON TOUR.
I’m also not going to bring tiny toys that can drop out of their hands and past their legs and into the floorboard abyss of crumbs, colored pencils and rotting dreams. Only toys five inches or bigger. Maybe a new little doll for Nat (surprise! we have 29 hours of car time ahead of us!) and some evil Transformer thingy to TAKE DOWN THE DOLL RAAAAAAR. You know.
Trays for snacks. Wet wipes at the ready. No slime. Their own travel water bottles.
Have you guys seen Someone Great?
Is it something great? Ha! oh.
It’s not that I NEED a new show. I’m still traveling at a blistering pace down this road of books (speaking of, I plan to finish Into the Water this weekend, so we can talk about it next week!), but I did watch Dead to Me, and it kind of gave me the itch to watch something else great. Ha! Oh.
Tell me what you think. This scene gives me so much life, but is the whole show AS great at this particular scene? I keep saying great and it makes me giggle. Never mind.
What are you watching? What should I be watching? What is the world watching? (don’t say game of thrones or I will cut you.)
So guess what. Tomorrow morning at 11am EASTERN, I’ll be back on The Kitchen!
And I’m grilling and I might fumble and almost drop the salmon but it’s fine. I’m fine. You won’t notice. Except for maybe when I go, “OH! UH OH! Oh. Okay.” Maybe they edited it out. Maybe they didn’t. It’s fine.
I’m thinking they edited it out.
MY LITTLE HUMANS GRADUATE FROM PRESCHOOL TODAY. And I have some strappy clogs arriving later this afternoon. Can’t decide which one I’m more excited about.
Duh, the clogs.
