Random Tuesday Thoughts

So the other day I go outside and it's just starting to rain so I say aloud Oh man! It's raining! (I have a gift for stating the obvious.) Anyway a wiseguy passing says no it's not. It's just your imagination. So I snap back with Oh so my imagination is making me wet? (No I didn't. I totally thought it and thank goodness I didn't because upon reflection that doesn't at all sound good does it??)

I was rolling coins to take to the bank and I made the following discovery. Money is filthy. I mean it's really really dirty. What are you people doing with your money to make it so dirty anyway??

So I was helping the seven year old with his social studies since he is having three tests this week. Is it just me or is it a bit excessive to have three tests in three days on basically the same material... in second grade???? By the way, attempting to teach a second grader to spell Australia and Antarctica correctly is an exercise in frustration. Just saying.

I have a collection agency calling me about a debt from 1994. (actually not me, my husband but same difference) Anyway, you would think after 16 years they would get the hint that they're not gonna get their money, but no they still keep calling every. single. day. Annoying.

So that's what's going on with me. Check out the random happenings of the Unmom and others here.

You make a good point! How the heck IS money getting so freakin' dirty?

Heh, I totally would have made that smart retort and then thought about it! ;)

I don't get how money gets so dirty, either. I suppose that's why it gets laundered sometimes...oh, wait, that's something different. ;)

3 tests in 3 days? I think the only time Princess Nagger had that was when they were doing the annual assessments (she's also 7, also in 2nd grade). I still think that's excessive.

Yeah, I have a second grader and seriously, homework!! I didn't get homework until at LEAST 5th grade. He had homework in 1st!

I hate homework. My 1st grader gets a ton!! He has more than my 4th grader. Annoying.

It's unbelievable how filthy money is.

If you think about what else people are touching besides money, you might not want to touch it all (unfortunately, there are a lot of people who don't wash their hands).

I have a second grader and I can't even imagine trying to teach her to spell Antartica (never mind Australia). Good luck with that.
