10 Random Things for Friday

  1. Happy Friday! I missed posting last Friday because my daughter and I drove 10 hours to attend a baton competition in Manalapan, New Jersey. This was our third time attending this particular competition. Our coach is from New Jersey and likes to go and visit, and I have a great friend in New Jersey who I usually visit on this trip. This time (since both of our families go), the coach wrote an extra small group routine for our daughters, and they earned a first place trophy for that too! Both girls also did very well in their individual events. 
  2. So also from last weekend's trip - Maggie doesn't like to pass up a chance to go swimming in a pool. Last Saturday we were both a bit tired from dealing with the competition all day, but she was excited to go swimming because it was just the two of us, so I said of course I'd go with her. She admitted she was pretty tired too, but wanted to go because I didn't usually. So I told her I'd go to the next open swim at home instead. Guess what I get to do tonight? :P
  3. I have roughly one month (okay, maybe two) each year when I score standardized tests from home. It's a great job, and I've been doing it for more than 10 years. But this is the first year that I also have another job, and my kitchen job has been having me fill in at another kitchen as well lately. So my two cute lil part-time jobs suddenly have me working around 40 hours each week. :O Can't wait for these paychecks, eh?
  4. I am so looking forward to next Friday. My mom and I are going to the Michigan International Women's Show. I haven't been in years, and I think the last time I attended it was as a vendor, so I still didn't get to walk around through it all. 
  5. Next Friday is also School Lunch Hero Day. So thank your lunch lady (or breakfast lady...).
  6. Don't get me wrong - I'm so grateful it isn't snowing, and the weather is a bit warmer. Now, if my skin could feel a bit of sunshine...
  7. I get to go shopping this weekend for work pants. They're supposed to be khaki or black, but the khaki ones I have now have had bleach splashed on them a couple times. So I should probably stick with khaki. Do you know anywhere besides Target or Old Navy to find comfy, business-style (not jeans) khaki pants? We'll probably head to Old Navy. I got my other ones at Target, and the Target employees said they find them in those two stores.
  8. While I do really like my job, I'm really looking forward to sleeping in this summer. Like, a lot.
  9. Plans are also starting to happen to actually have a deck put back on our house this summer!! The financing is just about done, so hopefully hubby calls for construction quotes/bids soon. I did it all last year (or the year before), and it felt like it took all summer just compiling info.
  10. Hope you have wonderful weekend plans, and the weather cooperates :)

My parents usually like going to the Women's Show, I think they try to win tix though :) and 10 hours is quite a car ride!
