Friday Five

Okay...had to make time today for the Friday Five!

What are you...

1. Wearing
My favorite Levi 569s with a St. Louis Hard Rock Cafe t-shirt. Feelin' comfy today!

2. Pondering
Later this morning I'll be taking Kiddo to register for preschool in the fall, and I'm doing the "I can't believe my little baby is about to go to preschool" thing, and thinking about all the stuff he's learned in just three short years. It's really mind-boggling how much knowledge we absorb in the first years of our lives. I mean, it wasn't that long ago where he couldn't do much more than smile, cry, and poop. And now he counts to thirty, makes up funny stories, and roots for the Red Sox and against the Yankees (by the way, they lost again last night...woo hoo!)!!!!!

3. Reading
Well, I should be reading The Screwtape Letters, since that's what I assigned for my church's book club which will be meeting in a week and a half...and I haven't read it for about 5 years...but hey, I've got a week and a half, right? It's short.

4. Dreaming
Since I hardly ever remember my actual dreams, here's a recurring daydream I'm having: I'm mere months from paying off my Paul Douglas Teacher's Scholarship eleven freakin' years after graduating from college (that's right, I'm paying back a scholarship...as long as you went into teaching, it was a scholarship, but if you did what I did and changed your mind about teaching, it became a loan), and I keep dreaming about all the other ways I can make that money disappear...

5. Eating
My mother will be happy to hear that ever since I posted about not eating breakfast, I've eaten breakfast every day. This morning it's Post Spoon-Size Shredded Wheat With Bran, strawberries, and orange juice.

When I registered my oldest for pre-school, I cried--in front of him! I can't believe he actually likes to go to school, seeing as how I've scarred him for life.

good luck coming up with a good solution to the money thing with a dream. sometimes it really does work!

sorry you're having to pay it back--what a drag.

Good play! Knowing I'd be miserable - and thus, make my kids miserable - as an at-home mom, I had to get day care for my kids from the beginning. I will never forget the first day I went back to work after my son was born. My husband left before I did, taking Robbie with him. And I stood at the front window, watching THAT MAN TAKE MY BABY AWAY, and cried and cried. Of course, since then, I've had my share of "Thank God it's Monday!" days, too...

Have a great weekend!

You're not kidding about the preschool thing!! Believe it or not, we're in the same boat with A. But I must say that having 2 more kids behind him probably makes it a little easier...it'll be nice to have a little time with the younger ones, too.
Huh...Kiddo and A may be in the same grade, who'd a thunk it? Although we may be actually looking at 3 years of preschool...who knows?
