Get Random

It's time for me to get random.  I love it.  My son gets so random that it makes my head hurt.  I will try not to do that to you.
I want to start with a gripe so I can get it out of the way.  Why oh why do people think they are above the rules?  That they can do whatever the heck they want?  Example:  I dropped my son off at school today like normal.  And there was a long line of cars at the drop off.  He was already going to be late, so rather than wait to get to the closer gate, I chose the main gate.  I let him out, wished him a good day, and drove away.  Isn't that how it is supposed to be done!??  Except...the lady in front of me, parked.  Got out!  Walked her kids to class.  What!?  It wasn't 5 days ago that there was a phone message and email from the principal talking about this very problem.  It just IRKS me to no end that people do this!

Ryan wanted to buy lunch today.  He is forever begging to do this.  I checked his account and he was $4.00 in the hole.  Whoops.  So I had to add back that much plus enough to buy lunch.  Easy.  Except, I put it into Emily's account.  Which goes to ANOTHER school!  D'oh!  Talk about an expensive mistake. 

My oven needs fixing.  Actually it's just the igniter that needs to be replaced.  I have the part.  All I need to do is call my uncle and get him out here to do the job.  He will do it.  I just need to make the call.  Have I done it?  Nope.  Do I miss my oven?  Like you can't even imagine. 

Last Friday Kristin brought her friend who is a boy home to hang out. (her cactus buddy) And Ryan had his first sleep over.  I think it was good that was I was so sick with a retched sinus infection so that I wasn't really able to let that sink in.  My daughter is growing up, and so is my baby.  *sniff*  Well they can grow up if they want to, but I absolutely refuse to do so!

Oh, the fun I could have had as a teen with this kind of technology! Scary to think!

My kids are always asking me how to spell things.  I am probably one the worst spellers on the planet.  Which is annoying because I distinctly remember in the 5th grade, being one of the last ones standing in a spelling bee.  That being said, I found an app for my phone that is simply a spell checker.  It's awesome.  And to check its amazing abilities, I typed in a word I am forever misspelling:  restaurant! HA!  Spelled it right again!  I spelled it right the first time.  I very rarely, if ever spell that one right.  I usually refuse to spell it.  Yeah, it's that bad!  But it's my little ace in the hole when I  need it!

I am being so random that I am linking up with Impulsive Addict and Seriously Shawn today!!  Be sure and stop by their places too.

I love random posts. :)
I HATE how people don't let the rules apply to them. Seriously, they do it so much here that I want to bulldoze the school pickup lane!

Emily said...

Random posts are great. I don't like rule breakers either. Way annoying!

Emmy said...

So did Ryan get to buy his lunch? That stinks that it went into the wrong account.

I couldn't live well without my oven. I use it almost daily...depending on what we have for dinner. Make that phone call girl!!!!

Thanks for linking up with us!! It's greatly appreciated!

Every stinkin' school has parents like that with the drop-off parking situation. I just don't get why they think it's ok for them. So irritating.

I wouldn't mind inserting myself in the same location as Jack Sparrow!

I got the same gripes about the school.People also feel as though it's a dog park. I got the same problem with the lunch accounts and I think we have the same stove, which I Light with a grill lighter.

We got a notice from school saying too many parents are dropping off their afternoon kinders too early. The poor teachers have to babysit during their lunch.

I'd be a little more sympathetic if we didn't have to have an early short day once a week. ;)

When in doubt, remember this motto, "There's an app for that" :)
