We are only a few short hours away from 8th grade graduation! After the girl got home from school/graduation rehearsal, we went back to the school, to get the extra ticket we needed, but that didn’t get included in the packet she brought home. Then we drove around in the pouring rain—torrential, tornadic, blinding downfall—that I basically asked for with my previous post—(so far all tree parts have remained on the tree) and got Chinese Food and lottery tickets. I spent all my cash on those stupid things. But look! Look how colorful they are! All that money just waiting to be won under those little silver scratch offs. Then we came home and ate and watched Sex and The City 2 until my son called for a ride home from b-ball practice. Then we dropped off the tickets for the dad and got gas. Then it rained more, the sun came out, and a rainbow appeared. Really.

I have the picture proof. But it will have to wait. I have exactly 16 minutes on the stove timer to get my ass up and dressed and out of this house with the girl and family. Did I mention we have a graduation to go to? Suspense and excitement ahead. The girl is giving a speech and everything! So proud. So happy. So old. Two in high school. Almost. Later.

Update 2. What did it mean??

Tomorrow Weed For Women Behind. Click here for the original post and question. Since the story is pretty basic, and straightforward  once you hear it, I will just explain without a lot of writing. It was a note left by my daughter to herself. The “woman” that lives “behind” us, asked my daughter if she would “weed” her garden area “tomorrow”, for money, so that she could plant the next week. So my daughter left herself that note so that she wouldn’t forget when she got home from school the next day. However by spelling woman as women, she added that little bit of mystery and confusion to the whole note. Never believe that your words don’t matter. And never believe that punctuation or one wrong letter cannot change an entire thought or meaning to a random message. Spelling matters!! Every letter counts!! Every comma counts!! And I should know, because I use A LOT of both! (And let’s not forget the under appreciated exclamation mark, which I also roll out on a regular basis to make extra points.) The flower was simply there so that she would be sure to notice the note. Makes all kinds of sense right? Now it does. And FYI, she did weed the garden and she did receive some cash. End of story. Mystery solved. Now we can move on to the next silly thing.

Extra FYI, those are the kids being cool and funny above.  But since they take, like, a million pictures, all the time, they can’t all be gems. So I put one of those below. I swear my daughter just holds the phone up and presses the button constantly, capturing these exciting moments for me to cherish. It makes me laugh every time I see it. Blah blahbbity blah. Bleahhh…

Street Money Update!

May 23, 2009 at 9:33 am (Street Money) (, , , , , , , )

It pays to exercise! About 5¢ every few months. It’s good for other stuff too…like your heart, your brain, your BIG butt…

Found a wore out nickel on the side of the running trail yesterday afternoon exercising with the BF.

(We later spent it on White Castles, but let’s just keep that our little secret)

Check here for the yearly total.

And check back later, when I post a pep-talk article from the Glamour Magazine about this very subject.

I have to do some personal hygiene stuff right now while the BF is out playing raquetball. We have another kid-less night to look forward to and I wanna be ready. Winky dink.

Street Money Update…on the Front Page!

April 29, 2009 at 9:50 am (Street Money) (, , , , , , , , , )

In order to generate more interest in my craziness, or help you skip the post faster…I am putting the Street Money Updates on the front page too!!

Oh, I know…you are welcome!

All 10 of you out there haven’t been asking, but I’m just doing it anyway. PLUS…we had two exciting breakthroughs.

One: We broke the 10 buck barrier! Made it in just under May.

And number two: The boyfriend finally succumbed to our kooky will and picked up some stray money right off the ground!

(Special note to the BF: Now you will never escape!  …hahahaha)

Anyway, I’ll still keep the separate page, because I like to have a fast spot to just throw it in when I am lazy, but now I can make witty comments and post it for all my fans so that you can have something funny to read and get you thru your day!  But don’t bother today, checking both places, because I used the same hilarity. Why think of 2 funny things when I can just use one? Save it for the next time. It’s a limited resource people…as my family will gladly tell you.

Have a great day and when you are out walking around…LOOK DOWN!! (occasionally…to look for money…get it?…but look back up too because you don’t want to get hurt or walk into something…) Oh the jokes…

2009 Current Count (as of 4/29/09) : $10.24 (Broke the 10 dollar barrier!)

Found alot last night out and about. I didn’t find any. But my family did! Grand total: 53¢

By person:

Mason: 5¢

Stevie: 38¢ (she was working it! she was searching)

But the big news is the boyfriend! Making his first appearance in the Street Money page, after 4 years of our madness, he picked up…loose change! Off the ground in a parking lot sometime during his day! HA! We got him! It was only a dime, but that’s how it starts…(please laugh your most evil laugh…NOW!) Bwah hah hah….

Boyfriend: 10¢
