Random Thoughts Thursday

Today I finally accomplished one of the things I've wanted to do since summer began: have a PJ movie party with my girls. We watched "Hairspray" and loved it!
I am slowly indoctrinating them with showtunes. Pandora radio helps. Hopefully by the time the Les Mis movie comes out they'll want to see it with me, because I know Chris won't.
The realization that school starts back up for me in a month has kicked me into high gear, organization-wise. Not sure why, really, but I'm going with it. The girls cleaned up their room and we rearranged a little bit of furniture. The beds, unfortunately, have to stay where they are, but we switched their shelf with their dressers and it helps immensely. We also cut down the bunkbed ladder and hung it from the side of the bed, rather than having it lean into the room.
I used three different saws to complete the ladder project. I am woman, hear me roar.
I also cleaned out the playroom, sorted through all the toys, and pared things down considerably.
And then Ellie remembered that, actually, she does play with toys, and set back my plans to give everything away. Sigh.
I won't be babysitting much this year, but I am likely going to be taking a part-time job at the elementary school as a reading tutor. I hope I can juggle that, along with my schoolwork, because I have a feeling this term is going to be brutal.
There are certain anatomical words that I said more times before noon today than I normally say in an entire month. Bless Ellie and the randomness of her mind - "Hey, Mom, what hospital was I born in?" led to a whole lot more than any of us thought we were going to discuss this morning. I think Vicki and Lexi felt like they were in the wrong place at the wrong time.
It's 3pm - probably too late to change out of my jammies now, right? Right?
