Let Me Count The Ways

5 – the number of outfits, including  plane wear, that I am taking to Cali

8 – the number of outfits, excluding plane wear, that I am packing for Lovegirl.

3 – the number of inches I estimate I shrunk after renting a sub-compact to drive up to Oxford, MS and back this weekend.  Not a good look!  Darn Chevy Aveo…

2 – the number of times I tried to talk Lovegirl out of wearing her frog rain boots to school today before I decided what the hell – we only go around once.  Picture it:  light blue uniform shirt, dark blue uniform shorts and green, knee high frog boots!

30 or 40 – the number of ducks that Lovegirl and Aidan attempted to feed this weekend.  Aidan is a duck-feeding pro, it took Lovegirl a minute to warm up to the idea (and stop crouching behind me) but once she warmed up, she had a ball.  She wants to go back today and feed them again.  Thanks a lot Pserendipity!!!

11 – the number of days standing between me and my 37th birthday.

4 – the number of places I need to stop by before I make it home – the beauty supply for beads for Lovegirl’s braids, the shoe dude (cobbler doesn’t sound right) to pick up shoes I had repaired, the cleaner’s to drop off the suit I plan to wear to my cousin’s wedding, WMart to get a prescription filled.

0 – the number of minutes I’ve spent actually working today.

Whatcha got??

    • Girl, by the time I get back, I’ll need to be in the gym at least 6, 7 straight days to get back right. And I mean for 24 hour stints! I’ve really slacked up on my fitness routine and plan on remedying as soon as I get home!
