1. I ran to the store tonight to pick up detergent, taco seasoning and lettuce. I did throw in some gluten free, dairy free, egg free waffles. You might wonder what is in them if all those things are out of them. Good question. A quick glance said I could have them, that's all I remember for now.
Anyway, that wasn't my point. My point was, as I was hurrying towards the store a group of 13-15 year old girls came out to wait for someone to pick them up - I'm assuming.
They didn't actually tell me this. :-)
They were chattering as I walked towards them, determined to get out of the cold as quickly as possible. One of the girls looked right at me, then did a double take. She turned to the girl next to her and said, "I thought that was your mom."
Ok, I know I've aged a bit. It happens. I have a few light wrinkles around my eyes and my laugh lines are deeper.
But have a 14 year old?
All I can say is that her mother had better have had her when she was 14 herself!
Maybe I'd better stop shopping in the teen department....
2. Which reminds me.... I crossed over to the dark side and bought a pair of skinny jeans.
I've resisted until now.
Not that they aren't cute, I'm just always slow on the uptake with new trends. Never sure if I can pull them off.
For one, they were on sale.
For another, I figured if there was ever a time in my life that I was going to be able to wear skinny jeans it was now - you never want to waste an opportunity. :-)
And lastly, it's hard to tuck the boot cut jeans into boots. It just is. And I want to wear boots.
3. Which brings me to this.
Did I tell you I'm knitting boots?
Probably not because I've only done about ten rows and I'm secretly afraid that is all I'll ever do, though maybe I'll do more now that I've told you about it.
I feel rather ambitious. I think maybe I should have stuck to the scarf, but my sister knitted a pair and they were so stinkin adorable I didn't resist when my little sister placed knitting needles in my hands and told me I was going to learn how.
I'll put up a picture of the start of them, soon.
4. Last but not least, last night we had a ladies night at our church called Rejoice. I will talk about this in one of my next posts, but it's not the randomness I want to talk about.
I left for it with our house a mess.
The kitchen was icky, the dishwasher needed to be unloaded.
The living room was full of scattered things. In my defense, I did pick up one towel and hang it up before I herded the girls out the door.
Oh, and lit the Christmas tree. You have to have your priorities straight, you know.
Dustin picked up the girls from my sisters after work and them came home and put them to bed.
When I finally arrived home I came in the front door and about fell over.
It was quiet.
The tree was beautiful.
My kitchen was sparkling, and the living room spotless.
Didn't I get an amazing guy?
