Friday Confessions

What, wait, it’s Friday? Hell, it’s still very early Friday morning, but that was fast. I had a bunch of stuff I meant to do this week. It didn’t get done.

Not done:

Phone to get an appointment for a pap smear. (I am religious about this, believe me! I’m doing this as soon as I wake up. You can’t screw around with cervical health).

Make an appointment for more contact lenses. I am down to my last pair and although I love my glasses, I feel more confident in contacts. I wish I could change that, but I can’t seem to.

Phone my dad. I want to tell him about my week, but every time I think about people to phone, friends or family, it is later than they are awake. Like now.

Incidentally, I am awake because I have just been dancing around the living room to Youtube videos. I guess that’s a confession on its own.

Okay, make me feel better, please. Tell me you didn’t have it all together this week.

    I confess to being dumbfounded at how effortlessly B repeats back whatever they say on our Learning Japanese CDs. I mean, I KNOW kids are supposed to pick up languages quicker than adults (and I can FEEL, in my own brain, this impenetrable wall in front of my language acquisition circuits that I know didn’t used to be there). But B has a certain amount of difficulty pronouncing English, let’s be frank, and that’s his native language, so I was a bit skeptical.
    But there he is, not just repeating the words back but repeating them back with NO accent (that I can hear). Nobody told him the sing-song tonality was important, he figured that out himself, and he does it effortlessly.
    Ok – I also confess to being envious of his supple young brain. Mine feels like a clanking steam engine, by comparison.

    Cervical health is so important. I am with you on that.

    My week started out high with the New Kids concert. But then it went steadily downhill. Now I have a cold and I am home sick with a massive, awful sinus headache.

    Since the New Kids concert, I have been watching their old videos on YouTube. So you are not the only one who dances to YouTube.

    New Kids on the Block?!
    OK, Stephanie is shaming me into confessing that I, too, dance to YouTube, and that I can go one lamer this week: Steve Winwood’s “Higher Love”. Why did I even look that up? Could it be because I am LAME??

    I confess that even though Monday was a holiday, and I took yesterday as a sick day because the pace of my life was overwhelming me and wearing me down, even though I actually only worked 3 days this week, I am still incredibly glad that it’s Friday.
    I really do love my job and I can’t imagine doing anything else to earn my living, but still and all, it’s work. So TGIF!

    I confess that I reduced my child to blubbering tears by re-arranging the living room furniture. Which sounds like some kind of tasteless Helen Keller joke (well, is there any other kind?), but is, I swear unto you, absolutely true.

    Rachel, I know of the wall-in-front-of-brain. I teach the little sponges, but I have not osmosed that much Korean. Also, I can’t blame you for the Steve Winwood, but I have to admit “Higher Love” is not a favourite of mine. Not with the Blind Faith and the Spencer Davis Group in the running.
    Stephanie, I really hope you feel better soon. And you have the New Kids, I have my beloved Duran Duran. No one can take them from us!
    Beth, I know that feeling well. TGIF!
    Els, was it because she could no longer jump from chair to sofa and vice versa?

    Something like that. Though when I offered to move the chair closer to the sofa, she was not appeased and just cried harder. At which point I closed down negotiations.

    “Tell me you didn’t have it all together this week.”


    Yesterday I sang all the words to a Luba song that I heard on the EASY LISTENING station.

    The moon is full, y’all. The moon is really damn full.

    Els, that was the right negotiating step, I am pretty sure.
    Cheesefairy, the easy listening is sneakily, well, easy. And Luba lyrics have access to our hind brains. It’s a plot or something.
