Awkward and Awesome Thursday

Awesome
My 7 year old daughter creating math homework for her 9 year old brother, complete with an 'ickzapo' {example} and then the problems with a, "Now you do it!"

Being able to take my dog on a walk and wear a tank top. You can't imagine how happy this makes me.

Seeing Heather push her stroller o' kids somewhere, flipflops on feet.  Heather + flops = Winter is gone. Its official, yo.

Awkward
Having to hold the PTA meeting tonight with this cold that I caught. I am so not a fan of blowing my nose in public. But I won't make it.  And I sound icky.

Maxi dresses. I do love. Target especially has some awesome ones. But when did did this name get slapped onto this fashion? Because I recall wearing dresses of this length in the late 70's. And several different styles scattered throughout the 90's, and they were just "dresses".  Yes, I am that old.  And I don't like the word "maxi". Sorry. It reminds me of feminine hygiene products.

Ha! I actually waited too long this year and after our long walk last night I realized that the flip callouses are not formed enough yet for a long walk. ouch! i also lean red that my sit n' stand stroller is hard to push with 30 pounds in the front and back...i felt like i was horizontal trying to get that thing moving!

hope you feel better!!!!!

A) get better.

B) totally with you on the Maxi name.
But the dresses rule. You can do anything in them. I could live and sleep in them, I think =) Bye bye jeans- see you in September!

So funny that you mentioned that about the "maxi" dresses. A couple of us girls on twitter last night were cracking up at a tweet about one girls' "maxi obsession"... she had to clear that one up. Maxi dresses, not pads. I so wish I could rock one, maybe next summer. Can't wait to see your WIWW posts w/them though.

Love the thought of Norah & the ickzapoo. Matt and I were just talking about all of your WI accents. ;)
