Thursday Thirteen

Thirteen Things about My Day

Thirteen Things Random Things about My Day

1. I had grilled pineapple for the first time today.

2. I decided someone I was never so crazy about might not be a bad person.

3. I decided someone I thought was a great person might not be someone I should be so crazy about. (Actually, I decided this about two people today).

4. At least one other person I work with was glad I shared this about the person in #2, because she was also feeling bad vibes about him but never wanted to say anything.

5. I realized that as much as I want to be an objective professional, Im always going to have to quell my feminist outrage about the sexism that thrives in our society.

6. I almost ran out of gasoline today. (you can say this about my day approximately twice a month)

7. I had to deal with two really tough situations that required me to behave in a way that is totally out of character for me. (In a good way, growth stuff)

8. My supervisor (madame fabu) and my boss (who needs a good alias) made the above situations much much better in many ways, making me once again intensely and painfully appreciative about how lucky I am to work with these amazing women.

9. My boys are sick today and their father made them watch horrible things like “Addicted to Oil” on the science channel. (not that I have room to judge. I once got completely sucked in to a documentary he was watching about the history of salt).

10. For the first time all summer, I had an umbrella during a down pour and did not get wet. Granted it was a golf umbrella and I ended up losing half my stuff in a puddle while I tried to put it back down, but I am still counting this as a positive in the day.

11. I learned the difference between alligators and crocodiles.

12. I got about 60 dollars of printer’s ink for free!

13. The Turnip took his first steps today!!!!

I KNOW!! My baby is growing up. Fortunately Canada, he is responding to "no" fairly well. Once he has a running start, this might change.

It was just plain, thanks for asking! I did hear if you salt pineapple it will not hurt your mouth (as pineapple is wont to do). Canada, where is your list???
