Unst Hallo! That’s how my brother would answer the phone when he was in Holland. Sometimes I say it because it makes me smile. I also toss in a few alstublieft, dank je wel, and bedankt occasionally. It’s basically the extent of the Dutch I know, although my brother and I are convinced I can read it after a few drinks. Signs and menus didn’t need to be translated as much then. Weird.
ANYWAY! I hope this Friday is treating you well. How was your week? If it was anything like mine, you have no idea what happened only that it dragged on forever and then poof! all the sudden it’s Friday and you have no memories of the week.
Good times? I don’t think I cried or had a panic attack and I kept the kids in my volunteer teaching assignment engaged this week so I’m calling that much a win.
I was left scratching my head yesterday, wondering if I was driving my invisible car or something because I almost got hit 4 times while out and about. 3 of those times were in the Target parking lot alone. One of the guys came whipping in to the lot in his silver Prius, stumbled out of the car all disheveled like and then saunter/staggered across the parking lot to the door. I have to assume he was high on something (Likely) or that his hipster-ness had rendered him stupid. (Possible.)
Speaking of Target, holy ugly! I was poking around a little yesterday and I found not one item I wanted to purchase for myself. Everything was either XS or incredibly ugly. To quote Sue, “I like it when retail cooperates with our economic agenda.” Have you been out and about shopping lately? Did you find lots to be ugly or is it just me?
Just a reminder that I’m peacing out for vacation next week. If you’d like to guest post, I’ll turn the keys over to you and you can take this blog for a spin. (I don’t really hand out the password, you just email me your posts and any photos and I’ll post them.)
Have anything exciting planned this weekend? I’m teaching just to fill in and then really no plans. I have a bunch of design work to do for some people under Court is Crafty but other than that, I think I’ll relax. Well, as best I can relax. We all know I suck at it! Oh and laundry and cleaning. Such a glamorous and exciting life!
So tell me something. Anything really will do. If you’re stumped why not share the best article/post you’ve read on the web or tell me about the most beautiful thing you’ve seen this week?
