Thankful for Randomness

I know everyone is doing their Thankful posts today. I'm not sure what it says about me that I was actually thinking of doing an "I'm so screwed" post today. I guess it means that I'm either ungrateful, or I really am screwed. Then again, they aren't mutually exclusive, are they?

Anyway, why don't I just get to it.

  • The gift shop at Natural Bridge Caverns had tons of awesome dinosaur stuff. We bought Michael a dinosaur dig brick. They typically are made of some kind of plaster and you use tools to uncover the dinosaurs buried inside. They are for kids 8 and up, but Michael loves them, so we keep buying them for him.
  • Michael was unhappy with the tools that came with the set. After trying to work with the hammer and pick, he paused for a moment then asked me to go and get his chisel.
  • Should I be concerned that my 4.5 year old has his own chisel?
  • We had a victory in the food wars last night. Michael, who loves pasta, refuses to eat one of my pasta dishes that he used to eat. He's simply being contrary, but I haven't figured out a way around it until last night. When he refused to eat it, I put Parmesan cheese on it and then told him I was going to eat it. Not wanting to give up his Parmesan, he decided to eat the noodles.
  • After we "made it right" by returning the dinosaurs Michael had swiped from school, he turned around and swiped another one. We have instituted a pat down policy when we pick him up. If we catch him, we'll make him return it right then and there. I hope we don't have to do that.
  • We will be spending Thanksgiving with my family at Aunt Bubbles house. I'm thankful that I have a wonderful family, husband and son. I'm also thankful that I don't have to cook. It's a double win for me.
  • Speaking of Husbands. This is why I'm thankful for mine.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone! May you be surrounded by love and joy. Also, make sure to save room for desert.

Must remember the pat down, must remember the pat down. I'm thankful Aunt Bubbles is cooking, so we don't have to clean the house! Woo Hoo!

I love Andy's post! It brought me back to my own mall bookstore working days. Will we ever get this hear the same story from your point of view?

Happy Thanksgiving!
