So yesterday, Thing Two shouts out very excitedly "Today MUST be my lucky day".
Skeptical mom replies with "why, what makes you say that?"
Well, Mom (with that tone of "mom, you know nothing" being used by even my baby!), I found not just a penny but also a dime!
Ah, maybe he is right...and I don't know anything...11 cents, who knew so much joy could be had?

Yeah...it is Friday and I so don't want to get up and go. But I'm up and Thing Two is back at school. And I realize I've lost a couple days thanks to him being home sick this week.
Can I cram three days worth of stuff into just one day? Not if I don't get my hiney off the couch...

And when he says "I know I need to miss school and skip tennis. My head is too stuffy to do either one". This boy LIVES for his Wednesday afternoon tennis lesson.
Sometimes it isn't the classic signs of illness you have to watch for...it's the atypical behaviors that make you realize he really is sick...

But alas, my baby is growing up...he just finished watching and liked it...
There is still hope for Thing Two...as he refused to watch any scenes where it looked like kissing might be involved...
As for me, I"m not sure which is more worrisome...the idea that I could be the momma to any of those actors (again, counting my blessings for being a late bloomer) or the fact that I too enjoyed watching this "tween" movie with my kids....

I didn't think I was that bad...until Thing Two says "OK, Miss Grouchy Pants Momma!" when asked to go brush his teeth.
Nothing like the insight of an 8 year old to snap you out of your funk and focus on the important things...
Which brings me to the really important news items of the day...as of 2:45 this afternoon, I am gainfully unemployed outside of the home....Can I get an Amen from the crowd?
Yep, Miss Martha has left the building.....

The Things and I are heading to the Midwest this summer to help Dad celebrate his birthday. The whole clan will be there (OK, as Lutherans, I realize our clan isn't as big as some of my blogging buddies) ...but aunts/uncles/cousins/life long friends will all be together. It's shaping up to be a might fun filled July 4Th Holiday weekend.
And while I am looking forward to this trip, my wallet was a bit worried.
Ah, but have no fear, Ole William here helped me out big time!
Thanks to "name your price" I scored some seriously sweet deals. They accepted my bid of 70% off the lowest available rate if booked directly through the hotel (and a 4 star hotel no less). And the car rental is 46% off the lowest published price.
Yowza...what shall I do with all this $ I'm saving? It just would not be good enough to savor my savings. That would seem so un-American, right?

The Things took notice (I had changed back into my standard mom attire before Hubby had a chance to notice).
Thing Two says "Mom, you look beautiful"
Thing One says "No, better than beautiful, you look hot!"
God save that poor boy when the hormones kick in and he realizes he once thought his rolly polly momma was hot. Forget college, I really should start saving for his therapy!
But for now, I'm just wishing we could sort of freeze time for these little men of mine!
