What Day Is It and What I Know For Sure

It feels like it was just Friday and I was just sharing what I know for sure. I mean wasn't it just last Friday?  Time is going fast, life is a bit of a blur.  A messy, fun, loud, intense, joyful, crazy blur.  

It's not Friday,I know that.  I wrote this post on Friday and things got so hectic I didn't post it.  Now it's Monday. I feel a bit like the Tasmanian Devil from Looney Tunes going through life like a messy tornado! Ahhhhhhh.

But I'm still posting this old post just to prove that I know a few things still, because I do, I think.

I know for sure that it is very snowy here today (Monday) which means no school for the kids, but that three out of four of my children were up by 7 a.m. still.

It snowed about 14 inches yesterday, but that didn't stop the boys (and Tim) from playing football outside.

Here's what else I know for sure this week(um, last week):

  • Rufus Whistle is so damn cute. And we love him so much.

  • I will do whatever J Lo tells me to do.  I will buy her new protein powders because duh, look at her.  She's 44 you guys and she looks so damn beautiful.  She makes me so not afraid of my mid-forties.  I want to add that after watching Lenny Kravitz during the Super Bowl half-time show, I feel like he could also sell me protein powders.  They both make me hopeful about getting older and being sexy and cool (there's hope for me yet that maybe I will someday be sexy and cool, lol).

  • Chocolate cake and fancy coffee are better than J Lo's protein powders.  This is my version of afternoon delight--

  • The show Parenthood is over and I am sad. Waaaaaa. I had to keep reminding myself that the family wasn't really my family and that I needed to not get so invested. But waaaaaa.  Even though I'm sad, it was a really good ending to six great seasons. No spoiler alerts here...just a few lessons I learned from the show.  Okay it's been a few days and I'm still sad. I have to keep reminding myself that I can visit the Bravermans on Netflix anytime I want to.

  • Having tweens and teenagers is going to be verrrrry interesting. One of my tweens got so mad at me he/she left the house to catch the bus without saying good bye.  What did I do you ask? I sang along to the Cameo classic Word Up.  Yeah, that's all.  What the hell?  How did he/she not like that song, it is a classic.  Whatever.

  • I don't care who wins the Super Bowl.  I'm not invested this year which stinks.  I don't even care about Katy Perry during the halftime. Maybe I am just feeling blah because I have SAAD or I just don't care.  It was a good game, but I enjoyed watching it, but still wasn't that invested. The half-time was fine, not fabulous, but fine.  I LOVED seeing Missy Elliot and Lenny Kravitz.

  • Our family LOVES watching The Goldbergs.  Do you watch it? It's such a fun show.  If you were a kid in the 80s you will totally love it, I promise.  We watch it together as a family (there are a few things that go way over the kids' heads, especially Wade's, but overall it's pretty harmless).
