Seven Quick Takes

December 3, 2010 at 7:30 am 8 comments

On our short drive home from my parents’ house the other night, we saw a house with tons of lights down the street. Jansen hadn’t pooped in a couple days so he was especially gripey.

S- Want to go look at those light?
C- Not while Jansen is grumpy.
S- (in the whiniest tone I’ve ever heard) But Chelsea. What if he’s grumpy all of December???

This weekend my family is going to Dickens on the Strand. I went once when I was in elementary school but haven’t been since. I’m pretty excited about it. Look at the description:

Hear Ye! Hear Ye! Be it decreed that all lords, ladies and children shall come and celebrate the 36th Annual Dickens on The Strand, December 4-5, 2010, where bobbies, Beefeaters and the Queen herself will be on hand to recreate the Victorian London of Charles Dickens. Characters from Dickens novels walk the street. Food and entertainment fill the area with sights and smells that take you back to another era.

Fun, huh?

My new office neighbor talks to himself… and cusses… a lot. I’m two seconds away from going out of my mind. OUT OF MY MIND.

I was talking to a woman I work with about her daughter. She recently had her first boyfriend.

Me- Did you look him up in last year’s yearbook?
Her- No. I stalked him on Facebook. Get with the times, Chelsea.

I need training before Jansen gets to be a teenager.

Last night for dinner we had some chicken and brisket meals that someone at work was selling. Stephen bit down onto a bit of a bone and SPAZZED. “Ohhhhh. Noooo. That was like 200 metal erasers scratching my teeth!!!” I don’t know if that’s as hilarious in writing as it was in person. Stephen hates the feeling when you are using a pencil eraser and the metal part scratches the paper. I have never thought of that feeling to be particularly offensive, but to each his own.

I love the little hair swirly on the back of Jansen’s head.

Jansen is currently sleeping on my hand so I’m typing with one hand. Also it is late and I really need to go to bed but I don’t want to move him.

    I always comment that I’m keeping Caden until he’s a teen, then I’m going to send him back. Before someone who doesn’t know me tries to figure out who I am in real life and report me to CPS, I am TOTALLY kidding.

    3. The lady in the office next to me, she does AR, and sometimes when she is speaking to a customer, she says over and over, “I know,” “I know,” “I know,” in various tones, it drives me crazy. lol

    4. Funny

    5. If I bite a bone while I’m eating something, like a burger or tuna, it grosses me out, I can’t finish eating it. Crazy but true. lol

    Have a Great Weekend!

    1. I totally get the “metal part of the pencil hitting the paper” thing. It makes me shudder, just thinking about it.

    2. I love our Darby’s little swirl too… :::swoon:::

    Ok Stephen just stole my heart. I never met (or heard of ) anyone else that has this issue with the metal part of a pencil. Its just as bad for me if I go to write with a clickable pen and the ink part isn’t clicked out! Haha!

    EDIT* ok I just figured out that Stephen is the hubby, not a kiddo, sorry! Stephen still rocks for sharing my quirk ! 🙂

    Your blog is snowing! Do people in Texas wish for it to snow as much as people in the midwest wish for it NOT to snow?
    5. it’s funny in writing because i laughed out loud…at work.

    Who knows what kind of crazy stalker technology will be available by the time Jansen is a teenager! Ah, scary. Better stay on top of that, little lady!

    eugh! The metal eraser on paper is the worst!!!! Seriously, you have me squirming in my seat every time I think about it now.
