Oh yeah, it’s FRIDAY! Which means that it doesn’t matter if our brains are in a million different directions, because the awesome Mrs. 4444‘s has anointed us with her magic Fragment Wand to do just that. And in case you need a second opinion, Sara steps up to the plate to offer one. So that takes a load off my mind. Even though it’s still in a million different directions.
I’m not prone to trust those promises since I’ve been ‘had’ before, so I also called the bank right away and canceled that card to stop any further charges from happening. The charges were in my name, but not my address. If I had been able to understand the customer service guy more clearly, I would have done some sleuthing on my own to locate the offender.
Luckily I caught it early before some greedy SOB wiped out my account. The ‘pending’ charges disappeared overnight, so I have more faith that the credits will be forthcoming as well. Luckily my bank is a good one, so if the promised credits don’t hit by the 10th day, they’ll reverse the charges immediately. I’ll be watching like a hawk.
The first day of fall is next week – I’m getting anxious to start my fall decorating. I really need more hours in the day.
In the meantime, all that extra running around and technical weight lifting didn’t initiate any pounds loss for the week, but since Aunt Flo is here for a visit, I consider being ‘even’ for the week a good thing, considering she always brings extra baggage (and cravings) along for her visit.
Princess Nagger Conversation of the Week:
Princess Nagger (waving her dentist mirror): “Today I’m going to be a dentist…want to be my patient?”
Me: “Uh…not sure I’m too keen on that idea…”
PN: “I know what I want to be when I grow up!”
Me: “What, you wanna be a dentist?”
PN (sighing): “Hmmm…well, there are really only 2 choices. A dentist or a teacher. I don’t know which one I want to be.”
Me: “So are you going to weigh the pros and cons of each?”
PN: “Well, raise your hand if you want me to be a dentist. I know! I want to be a dentist! No, wait, I want to be a teacher… I don’t know! They’re both good!!!”
Me: “How are you going to decide?”
PN: “Well, let’s make three choices!”
Me: “Wait – now there are three choices?”
PN: “Dentist, Teacher, or Nurse. Hey, I’ll be better…hey! Don’t write that!!” (she erupts in a fit of giggles, since I’m typing this in notepad as she speaks to make sure I get it right…still giggling…)
PN: “OK, write everything I say!” (laugh laugh giggle giggle giggle I don’t even know)

Me: “OK, I’m getting tired of typing the gibberish…let’s get back to what you were talking about. Nurse, Dentist or Teacher. What about a Doctor?”
PN: “Hello here! Nurses are the same thing!!! Only they’re a girl!!!”
Me: “Nuh uh, doctors and nurses are different – and there are boy doctors, girl doctors, girl nurses and boy nurses…..”
PN: “Hey Mama! Look at me! I’m a Dentist!” (waving her dentist mirror around…)
PN: “Let’s make four choices…”
Me: “Ahhh! four now, huh? What are they?”
PN: “Dentist, Nurse, Teacher, or Paleontologist.”
Me: “Ahhh! You’re adding dinosaur guru to the list now, huh?”
PN: “No, not a dinosaur guru, a Paleontologist!”
Me: “I don’t know how to spell it…I’ll have to look it up.”
PN: “Hold on, I can spell it for you…” (she retrieves her dinosaur play mat and spells it for me…)
PN: “I just wanna be…uh, I know! Raise your hand if you want me to be a Paleontologist. Going once…going twice…Paleontologist wins!!!“
Me: “So you’re going to grow up and study dinosaurs?”
PN: “Uh, let me think….YES!!!! You know why?”
PN: “Because I love dinosaurs!!! That should be enough….uh, Mama, you can stop typing now!!”
