Random Observation #1: While listening to our Fearless Leader try to explain the reasons we have time-change to our eldest, something occurred to me. The government is continually trying to pass new laws and regulations, and most of them weigh more than my last child. I think these complex laws that most adults can't even read (including the ones who are trying to pass them) would be shortened and simplified if we made it a mandate that before you tried to get a bill passed, you had to be shut in a room full of six-year olds, and you must explain to them the law, and why we needed it. You then had to listen to them try to explain it back to you, and be open to any suggestions they may have for the improvement of your bill. Sounds good, huh? I'd bet we'd have a lot more parks, and a shorter school year at the very least... :)
Random Observation #2: Sometimes you don't realize what you need until you have been given it. I didn't know I needed a chat-fest with my BFF until she called yesterday. We don't see each other often, because we don't live in the same state, but we have been friends since we were 15. We try to talk when we can, but it usually is several weeks, if not months between calls. We had a long talk yesterday, and I felt better when we were done. I didn't know I needed to feel better! :)
Random Observation #3: I am thinking about changing THE SCHEDULE. This is a big thing for me, you know, with my OCD and all. I usually have my week planned out in the same basic way for every week. Laundry Monday, laundry at mom's on Tuesday, grocery shopping Wednesday, clean house on Thursday, fun day on Friday (when we can). But this week I had to adjust the schedule due to the weather. (What, you mean you don't want to take two little boys grocery shopping in pouring down rain and thunderstorms? Where's your sense of adventure?!) So I cleaned house on Wednesday (gasp), and I have plans to grocery shop on Thursday. Well, I realized that I kind of like staying home on Wednesday; it frees me up from the pressure of rushing to get home from the grocery store in time for naps, which are vital because of church that night. Plus, it kind of keeps all my work towards the beginning of the week, when I seem to have more energy. It was definitely nice to wake up Thursday morning and have a clean house. The only drawback I can see so far is that the house might be messier than I usually like for the weekend. I'll keep you posted...
Well, these are some random things that I've been musing on this week. A small glimpse into the random place that is my brain... :)
