My mean mom

     She got me tonight.  Here's the scoop.  The first Wed we had Harry Potter night, I got the music stuck in my head.  Same with the second.  The third night though, there was a little bit of stuck in my head Wed, but most of it hit on Saturday.  Which is weird, right??? Delayed stuck in my headness, I guess.  So earlier today, I was talking to Randi and singing the HP theme song.  I was like, "What the heck is going on here?"  So after I got off the phone with Randi, I called mom.  I told her that, and she was laughing at me.  So we have a short conversation, during which I managed to not sing HP to her.  Then we're getting off the phone.  I say, "you have a good night," and she replies by singing the HP theme to me.  I was like, "Oh, thanks.  Like it wasn't stuck in my head enough!!!!"  So I have a mean mom today.  I don't like her anymore, not till tomorrow. 
     I talked to Randi yesterday.  I didn't realize it, but we were on the phone for FIVE HOURS!!!!!!!  I glanced at my phone and was like, "Holy crap, we've been talking for four hours and fifty five minutes" and really, that's a record for me.  Julie and I once talked four and a half or something like that, but this is a new record.  We're still learning all about each other, so we could easily fill five hours.  She's holding a poll on her blog, if you want to go over and vote.  She's going to kit up a couple of HAEDs with her Christmas money, and she can't pick which one she wants to start with.  You can find her here.
     Got great progress on DGM for part of this week, and none for the rest.  I still think I'll make my goal though.  I've got a little bit more bsing to do on part seven, then it's on to part eight.  I really like the birds.  They're so cute.  I didn't stitch a stitch Thursday or Friday.  Friday I was too tired to stitch.  I was just shattered all day long.  But when I tried to nap, my brain said, "No sleeping," so I couldn't.  Thursday, I got my stuff in from the car and did a lot of page protecting.  I had a shopping trip on Wed!
     I called mom Wed afternoon and asked if she minded going to Sam's Wed night.  I needed meat, and theirs is cheaper than at the grocery store.  Since we were there, she wanted to see the kind of ink I wanted her to get in Sept, because that's when I get paid again.  So I took her back to show her, and she was like, let's just buy it now and I"ll put it on my Discover.   Which is okay with me.  More cash back for her, and I get my ink now and not later.  So then we picked up page protectors too (another four hundred of them) and I found a great deal on highlighters.  I couldn't find mine anywhere (I looked all over the desk, but I didn't think to look where I usually put it away.  DUH!!!), so I got a twenty four pack of Sharpie highlighters for eight eighty eight!!!  I was excited at that deal!!  So I have now got highlighters in yellow, pink, purple, blue, green, and orange.  I'm set for a while.  Of course, when I went to put the one of each color highlighters away, I found my old yellow one.  Right where it was supposed to be, lol.  No wonder I didn't find it on my desk, it was put away!!!  So Thursday night and part of Friday, I put charts in page protectors.  I only have a couple of my nineteen to go now.  Then I'll get the ink out and finish printing.  I need to do Sloth, and Water, and maybe one other.  Then I'll be done for quite a while.  Till Halloween or Thanksgiving, whenever the next sale is.
     Anyways, I'm off to make dinner.  Geez, it's ten thirty nine at night, and I'm just now getting around to dinner.  Sure hope the spaghetti is worth it!!!

Mouse said...

eee and I thought I talked alot hahahah ... good you are getting organised and got your ink and highlighters .. that should keep you busy for awhile :) love mouse xxx

It's so fun to get organized. I love sheet protectors! Your highlighter bonus pack was a great deal! I have just one pink and one yellow highlighter, and the dog got the yellow one, so I bought another at the store (just a single one). I should stock up so I have extras in a drawer somewhere!

You're lucky to find somebody that you can have that long conversation with--it's definitely a blessing!

Joann Mannix said...

I always do that. I finally buy a replacement after searching everywhere for the lost thing, only to find the original as soon as I buy it.

And man, don't you hate it when a song gets stuck in your head? the last one for me, was Rebecca Black's "Friday" which is a hideous song.

Oh no, here we go again.

I've noticed, Randi. And you've got nothing on me in that department. We can both go at it!!! I try to keep my brain busy, Kaye, as it runs at such a high speed. Too fast for my fingers to keep up, lol. I hope so, Mouse. I'd like to stay busy with what I have and not buy anything more for a while. I have lots of extras now, Debbie, lol. Sorry to hear the dog got yours. I'm sure if Yes Dear could get to mine, she'd play with them. It is Siobhan. I love her to death, she's quirky and funny and interesting. Of course, we're still getting to know each other, so we had lots to talk about. LOL, Joann, sorry to get something you don't like stuck in your head. Lucky for me, I like the HP theme, so I'm all good. There's always something stuck in my head!!! And yes, that IS always the way. Whenever I get something new, and it's a replacement for something lost, I find the lost item soon after. Hope you had a good weekend.

It's always lovely to have a nice long chat. A friend of mine rang me on Saturday night and we chatted for ages!

♥ Nia said...

Sometimes I talk to my mom on the phone for half an hour and my ear burns!! LOL That's already too long for me hahahah
I may be the only woman on earth who doesn't enjoy talking on the phone heheheh I prefer texting, writing emails, tweets, everything else besides phone! strange, right? lol

You're so right, Sally. I love to talk on the phone, as you can tell, so this was right up my alley, so to speak. I'm glad to hear you had a nice long chat too!! I don't think you're strange because of that Nia. I have an acquaintance who also doesn't like to talk on the phone. It's just not her thing. I hardly ever text. I occasionally do, but I hate using the keypad when I can use the computer's full sized keyboard!!!
