Thursday 13

1. I have been on a bit of a laundry kick lately. I've been washing clothes everyday whether I need to or not. I simply can't stand have a half-full basket of dirty clothes sitting in the hall.

2. I do not like wearing a jacket in the car. I don't care how cold it is, either. I'd rather blast the heater and fry out my occupants than wear a jacket.

3. Kyle made up a nickname for Jango: Puppy-Cat. Apparently, my son seems to think our cat acts like a dog. True, she does love to play fetch, talk, and she's fiercely loyal. If she was 15 pounds lighter, I'd probably carry her around in my purse. :-)~

4. Lucas told me that I make the best dinners: tuna casserole...chili...and burritos (fresh tortillas and beans made from scratch).

5. It was a banner day around here when I found Kyle his Wii. Q had been the one going to Toys R Us everyday on his lunch hour. He even had Kyle's birthday cash in his wallet at the time. Oh well. I'll use the "Wii money" for groceries.

6. Kyle's been spending all his free time playing Wii Sports. The game menu has a little chime in it that sounds just like our doorbell. I really need to learn the difference between the two sounds before I drive myself crazy answering a door with nobody there.

7. We've had a few days of rain this week. And I was personally able to guarantee it would happen. On Tuesday, I wore my favorite shoes, I carried a suede purse, and I wore an outfit that didn't match my umbrella.

8. Q's favorite show is 24. I can't watch it. That show is not fluffy enough for my liking. I prefer a mindless, campy soap opera where women slap down the harlots who are pursuing their husbands, drinks get thrown into faces, and the antagonist routinely get pushed into the pool fully clothed.

9. I must admit: my feelings get a little bit hurt when Jango sleeps on Q's side of the bed instead of mine.

10. I'm in the process of redecorating the living room. For the last few weeks, it's been sitting half done. I hate that.

11. There's no such thing as too much love, too much chocolate, or too many dishes.

12. Yesterday, I encountered a couple of guys trying to sell magazine subscriptions to people in a strip mall parking lot. I promptly report them to the store manager. I've done this many times before, and I'm sure I'll do it again. Aside from the fact that one of these guys once approached me while I was sitting in my car--frightening the $#!% out of me--I once got burned on one of their little magazine deals.

13. I am very picky about the way the dishwasher is loaded. Whenever Q does this chore, I usually come along behind him and correct his work. I do appreciate his efforts, however.

Jango must be daughter and son are very fond of cats which is a bit disconcerting because my family and I are dog people!

Couldn't get past #4: fresh burritos...mmmm!

Gee, Menchie, where did you get the idea that Jango was big? :-) Have you been listening to Christopher?

But you're right. She is big. I'll post her picture for you.

I am sooooo freaked out because I also rearrange the dishes in the dishwasher when my husband loads it. Granted, he's loaded it maybe six times in six years, but still, that is yet another freaky coincidence!
