Hope you're not sick of me yet!
This seems as good a way as any to kick off "Things I'm Loving"...
Dig if you will, the picture: I'm doing laundry ('cause some drudgery never ends!) and I'm checking the pockets of the jeans, etc. When I find this small, business-card-sized note in Schecky's cargo pants:
This is cracking me up - obviously a list of things for which he is thankful, written for Spanish class. Which explains the name, "Miguel" - obviously, there's no Spanish translation for Schecky...
My Spanish is virtually non-existent, but between my shaky knowledge, and Babel Fish, I think he's thankful for:
- My family
- My fish
- My house
- My cats
- The turkey
- My Wii
There are a few things on this list that surprise me.
Like his fish, "Fish", for example. I'm not sure he's really that invested in Fish. It may just be that it was an easy word that he knew. (The Scheckster gets lazy like his Momma that way...)
The other thing that surprised me? That Bubba and I got listed before the Wii*!
I'm thankful for that!
Speaking of a boy... I'm about 3 minutes away from being late to pick him up -
*A perfect example of a not-sucky thing that happened in November. Bubba received a Wii for participating in some developer's conference earlier in the year. We are all smitten - even me, much to my surprise. I'm not much of a gamer, and I have ZERO eye/hand coordination. So I wasn't all that excited when the Wii showed up at the house. I mean, it was free, which always makes me happy, but aside from that, I was kind of "meh."
Until we set it up.
I *love* this thing. It truly is a gaming platform that everyone can enjoy - young or old. Athletic or uncoordinated, etc. There really is something for everyone.
And - who knew? - it turns out that I am some sort of freakish bunny disco dancing savant!
