sharing my week's camera phone pictures and the stories behind them.
I saw this on my way out of a store on Friday afternoon. It cracked me up. I posted it on IG and on my Facebook page and I noticed a curious thing: none of Kaitlin's friends liked it. It occurred to me that they wouldn't even get it. So, if you get it, you're probably in my generation. If you don't get it, then let me introduce you to Nicole Richie's dad, Lionel, and his 1984 hit song, Hello.
"Take a picture of me, momma," she said as we watched a movie Friday night.
"Okay, but now you need to take a picture of me."
John got in the varsity game in the fourth quarter at quarterback. AHGH! Wouldn't you know it?! I told him he should thank me for not going to the game because if I had, he wouldn't've gotten in.
"I didn't know you weren't at the game," he smiled like a Cheshire cat.
"I mean, I was at the game! Great game!" I said. "Way to... throw that ball... and... stuff."
JD's phone rang off the hook with text messages telling him John did a great job. Century lost the game, but John did well during his first varsity outing at quarterback.
That's what I hear, anyways.
While I was in the fabric store I saw a little minky lovey blanket with ribbons sewn around the outside and I thought, "geeze, I wish I'd seen this when I was making loveys for my kids." Of course, back then I didn't know how much babies like to poke their fingers into holes and twirl. Which completely ruined the loveys that I knit for them.
I happen to know some people who are expecting and I just had to make some. Because I got the sewing bug now. (I'm counting on the fact that I'm pretty sure they don't read my bloggy-blog...)
I'm happy to say we didn't get kicked out of Target. And we have a fun memory now. And video to boot.
We've shared my Facebook profile for the past couple years (since she wasn't 13 yet), so while we were sitting there eating our breakfast muffins on her bed, she set up her own Facebook account. She wasted no time.
This happened this week.
I discovered someone had some fun with my autotext.
John got a concussion during the second quarter. His second concussion. (His first was in 7th grade youth football.) He got hit hard as he was passing the ball. He didn't realize that he had a concussion until a few plays later when the coaching staff noticed he was moving slowly and wasn't making very good decisions.
Now he has to "rest his brain" until he gets cleared by the doctor to play again. (Although the 9th grade season is over, the varsity's is not. The freshmen suit up for the playoffs. And possibly play.) We'll see.
Wow. That was a lotta pictures this week. Thanks for hanging with me until the end. xo
