Random Sunday Thoughts

Filed under: Uncategorized — Amy @ 6:00 am

1.  Monkey Girl and I played Band Hero on Saturday.

It’s been awhile since we’ve played, and we decided to change it up.

Usually, she plays drums or guitar and I do vocals, or I play guitar or bass and she does vocals.

I decided to try the drums.

I rocked those drums!

Granted…I was on the easy level (not beginner…one step up) but I was jammin’.

I think tomorrow, I might go for medium.

I think I have a new future.

2.  I’ve been watching Arrested Development while on the treadmill.

Never watched this show before, but people always said it was a show they thought I would like.

Good call, those people!

I’m loving it!

Always a Jason Bateman fan, and the rest of the cast is just as awesome, and the story is ridiculously hysterical.

Great show.

3.  I haven’t logged into Twitter for awhile.

I guess I kinda let it go for the summer.

Didn’t mean to…just forgot about it.

I use Twitter as a professional learning network.

I subscribe to a variety of different educators and educational journals and it’s a main way that I keep abreast of what is new and exciting in education.

I logged in Saturday night and caught up on a lot of great reading, just in time for the new school year.

Oh, and was surprised to see that, apparently, I must have somehow accidentally subscribed to follow Hugh Hefner on Twitter, as well.

In case you were wondering, the Saturday night movie at the mansion was Chariots of Fire.

4.  Tiny is utterly delightful.

Am I biased? Perhaps.

Don’t really care, and I’ll say it again, delightful.

He is in the stage where is vocabulary is bursting open and it is hysterical.

And delightful.

His newest thing is “I don’t know.”

You say, “Tiny, where is the White House?” and he says, “I don’t know” and shakes his head mournfully.

Say, “Tiny, where is your ear?” and he’ll touch his ear and say “Ear.”

Say it again and he’ll say, “I don’t know.”

He’s also really into “Awesome.”

It used to be “Cool!” and now it’s “Awesome!”

The other day, we were hanging in the bathroom, because one of his favorite games is “Pull all the bath toys out of the closet and throw them in the empty tub.”

Keeps him occupied for at least 15-30 minutes at a time.

So, while we were in there, he was chatting away, declaring things to be “Awesome” and so I pulled out the camera and recorded this little smidge of delightfulness for you:

One more time.


Until I had to clear the bath toys back out of the tub.

That was not delightful OR awesome.

5.  I was filling in our calendar for September (I use the Cozi app…phenomenal) and I suddenly realized that between work and carting the kids to all of their “stuff” after school, I may not have time to read another book until Christmas break.

That sucks.


  1. He is just the cutest!!!
