1. On Sunday, I cut up my first watermelon. EVER. Who the hell hasn’t cut up a watermelon by the time they are… well, my age?! But I find watermelons (and really all melons) intimidating. With their big thick rind and all.
Now that I’ve conquered my melon demons, I obviously feel very empowered. I’m guessing that hosting my own cooking show is just around the corner.
2. Over the weekend, I left the twins home with my dad and headed to the pool club with my big girls. About a mile from home, I realized I had forgotten my cell phone. I pulled the car over so I could text my dad to bring the phone outside and put it on the front steps. That way, I could easily swing back to the house, jump out of the car and grab it.
But as you might guess, texting someone WHEN YOU DON’T HAVE YOUR PHONE, is really really hard. Even harder than cutting a melon.
3. A friend of mine has a very cool company called UV Skinz and because she’s insanely nice, she sent me a package of rashguard shirts for my kids. And I remember the package arriving at the house but could not locate it. So I sent her the following email…
“Okay, so I swear to god I saw the UVskinz package arrive but now for the life of me – I can NOT FIND IT in this stupid house. Can you just confirm for me that it was sent out? Did I imagine that it arrived? Or maybe my girls squirreled it away somewhere. I have no idea. Let me know because I have ransacked my entire home. I’m sorry I’m such a basketcase. xo”
Well, I did find it.
In a U.S. Postal Service sorting facility in New Jersey. (Honestly, I never even thought to look there.) Yes, according to the USPS tracking information, it has yet to arrive because it’s still in transit.
I’m blaming incidents #2 and #3 on PTSSFFNLEVVS.
Otherwise known as Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome From “Friday Night Lights” Ending Very Very Soon. It’s so devastating. Maybe I should do a hunger strike until NBC agrees to make more episodes. A hunger strike with loopholes for sushi, peppermint patties and wine. Obviously.
(Note: I did not see the most recent episode on Friday, so I beg you not to divulge what happened.)
