*John Mayer has done it again. Another instant classic:
Love it-not so much the new look John, but the song is brilliant. Can't wait for May 22nd when the whole album comes out. No bad words (besides sucks...but I that is because I have a ten year old and our standards are a little different from the worlds...) in this song. I guess he must have read my letter. :)
*Happy 65th birthday Dad! You are officially a senior citizen and can get discounts at restaurant's and stores on certain days a week!
*I still haven't found my iPod charger but Aaron put some music on my laptop last night so I can live another week without it. The short list of music I could not live another week with out: Dave Matthews, John Mayer, Adele, Colbie Calliat, Alanis Morissette, Miranda Lambert, Joshua Radin (really just Paperweight but I am going to listen to his other songs this week and I am sure fall in love with them all). I am wishing I had him put on Jason Mraz too. I am really in the mood for Lucky, You and I, and a few others that keep playing in my head...
*It really is amazing how many things wouldn't stop going through my head last night while I couldn't sleep but now I can't seem to remember them. Some of them were profound too...they will come back to me...maybe.
*Mother's day was wonderful. I got a corsage to wear to church and a set of pens. Pink, orange, green, and blue (this is where you would see a picture of them if I knew where my camera cord was packed...why it wasn't with the computer or camera I will never know...). My child knows me so well. He wanted to get me a pillow pet but they didn't have one he thought I would want (yes I want one. Aaron said they only had Winnie the Pooh, a ladybug, Mickey Mouse, and something else I can't remember...Jake is right. I don't want any of those.), so they headed to the paper products aisles of Walmart. He told Aaron that they could just get me a bunch of composition notebooks and I would be thrilled (so true) but settled on the pens instead which I love. :) Jake is going to be a great husband some day because he is really great when it comes to gifts. For dinner we had the ever famous Harmon hot dog chili on Ballpark franks. Life it simple and oh so good. Thanks my guys!
*Do you want goosebumps, chills, tears, and overwhelming joy to fill your soul to over flowing? If so watch this video:
*I can't wait until we finally get our house...Still no word on the offer-a whole month later. Short sales are turning out to be not so much fun. We (we being me, Jake, Mom, Nana, & "the girl Erin". Ranee isn't on this list because she has to work, but if I find a keeper she will be brought to see it immediately for approval. Aaron will too of course. :) ) are going on Wednesday to look at back up houses. I still love "our house" but I can't wait forever. Especially since I found another one that is very promising in the next neighborhood over...I am fickle what can I say!
*Okay so back to why I can't wait to finally get our house: I have collected lots of words I can't wait to frame. I have become even more addicted to quotes as of late thanks to Pinterest. I am a lover of words...and lots of them. I have several
*I love my Kindle. I am currently reading Jane Eyre on it. I love how it tells me what % I have read. I have read something like 67% and I can't for the life of me decide what else could possibly happen in the next 33%! I also love the fact that if I don't know exactly (that is how I am making myself not feel so dumb-by pretending I kind of know what some of the words mean...) what some of the words mean I can just pull up the definition. There are so many times in life I wish I had that option...
*Tomorrow night I am going to an open house for parents interested in "Classical Conversations". I am really loving homeschooling because I get to learn tons of stuff I never did learn in our awesome (sarcasm) public school system. Sorry-I don't mean to offend anyone who enjoys our countries attempts at educating our children. I survived it but now I get to learn all the things I never did because I wasn't what you would call a self motivator in school and didn't work any harder then (than?) I had too...and
*Am I the only 35 (almost 36-thank goodness for even number birthdays) who doesn't know when to use then or than...I need to figure that one out...
*We had a Mother's Day Weekend girls night on Saturday and went to see "The Vow" at the $2.50 theater...remember when it used to be called the dollar theater...those were the days...I loved it-the movie I mean (are you seeing why I have to declutter my brain on occasion? It runs a mile a minute with randomness 24/7). Definitely going to read the book. We also went for ice cream after. We had so much fun we decided we are going to do it once a month. :)
*Jake has been waiting patiently (sarcasm) for me to play Lego Indiana Jones on the Wii with him so I better wrap it up. We had a scare this weekend when Jake noticed the Wii wouldn't turn on. THE HORROR! He even discussed how we could sell all the games and get a 3DS if it really was broken-after he got over the initial shock of course. Daddy to the rescue-it is just the cord...or something easy to fix. All is well in the Harmon universe again. :)
*Here's to hoping all the profound stuff that was in my brain yesterday will come back! What is on your mind today?
