10 things that happened or I discovered this week.
1. I had to MATE my pumpkins. Male flower+Female flower= PUMPKINS. No joke, look it up.
2. My ability to “handle the duties of the room mom” was questioned because of my age. Yeaaaaaah.
3. The hubby got a job offer. It’s a travel job… but hey, it isn’t like I haven’t done that before.
4. I too, have a job interview next week. 😀
5. Titan decided he wanted to eat ALL THE THINGS on the counter the other day. There just so happened to be a pile of jalapeno’s. I don’t think he will be doing that again.
6. We finished The Game of Thrones, Season 3. HOLY BAT MAN y’all, I cried.
7. I have learned that there is a RIGHT and WRONG way to RATE a book on goodreads. “Just Rating” without the review is frowned upon by some. *shrug* who knew.
8. Some of the best people in your life are ones you have never met.
9. My son was mad that I didn’t take him to the release of City of Bones. I mean… MAD
10. Listening to the boys argue is THE funniest thing ever and usually the highlight of my day. Whatever that says about me. bahaha
