What Time Is It?

Well, since I’ve been up since 3:15 a.m. (more on that in a minute), I really can’t give you more than a few random thoughts today.

Yeah, first of all, Aidan hasn’t adjusted to ‘falling back,’ so the last two mornings have had 5 a.m. wake up calls. And who knew it would be a joy to sleep until 5 a.m.? He’s got a cough going on, and he woke up at just about 3 — and wouldn’t go back down. So, since Renee’s doing the feeding thing with Erin and she’s got to get out of the house first, I took him downstairs and we simply watched TV until it was our ‘normal’ morning time. Needless to say, it’s 10:30 as I write this and I’m ready for, well, dinner.

I have to admit, I’m a little nervous. I’m guest blogging for Clink Thursday. Talk about pressure!

Apparently I’m a ‘buh-bye’ person. I hate those people. I hate hearing “mmm, buh-bye” at the end of a phone call. Just ‘bye’ please. And especially not “bye now.” I think that’s actually my biggest pet peeve. But, point is, apparently I said “mmm, buh-bye” twice on the phone this morning. Molly caught me each time. I’m blaming it on the wake up time.

Besides taking my son to Rattatouille (forgive the spelling if it’s wrong, again, 3:15 wake up), I can’t remember the last movie I saw in the theater.

Could my Pats really go 16-0?

I don’t feel 38. Heck, I don’t know what I feel, but I know it’s not 38.

Have I mentioned that Pushing Daisies is the best new show of the year? Oh, and have I mentioned that I love Kristin Chenoweth? Love. Heck, to all my 20-somethings, I might even lurve her. Le sigh.

Even before Molly gave her notice, I’m starting to get that overwhelmed feeling at work. Hate that.

Forty by 40 update. We’re not even a week in yet, but I do feel like I’m more aware of things than I have been in the past. I have a lot to learn (and a lot to lose), but I’m going one day at a time.

And, come on, tell me you’re not singing the theme song to One Day at a Time after the way that last paragraph ended. Wait a minute. Another twentysomething alert — how many of you even know what One Day at a Time actually is?!

What else? That’s it. I got nothin’.

  4. Have not heard of it!

    Boo for getting up at 3:15.

    Maybe I’ll watch Pushing Daisies online today while I pretend to be working or something.

    Mmmbyenow.

  5. Anna says:

    At least you didn’t answer the phone, “Y’ello!” the way some people do. Hate that.

    I think I might be a little bit internet-ly in love with you after this post. I keep waking up at 5 AM too. My newphew’s name is Aidan. I’m super nervous about guest posting for Clink, too. I’m a buh-bye person, much to my dismay. I want to see Rattattouille. I’m going to be 33 this year, and I still feel 16. And I want to marry every epsiode of Pushing Daisies.

    Ok, phew, that was overwhelming for a first comment. 🙂

  7. Melissa says:

    One Day at a Time was just a little before my time. Unfortunately, not by much.

    Anna’s comment about Y’ello! cracked me up! I hate that too.

  8. L B says:

    I have no idea what that one day at a time is. But I do know that I was sleeping at 3:15…ehhhh Mike that is rough!

  9. Molly says:

    I thought of something worse than “bub-bye”.

    Saying “Ciao!” I *hate* that.

  10. Stephanie says:

    In response:
    For some reason, when you said you’re ready for dinner at 10:30am, I laughed out loud. HAHAHA!

    Agreed. Should be just “bye”. One woman I work with just hangs up the phone when she decides she’s done talking, no goodbye, no farewell, no ta-ta, nothing. Just hangs up. OOOK.

    I really want to see Ratatouille. Was it good?

    Our Pats could go 16-0. Whether or not they do, that remains to be seen. It seems like every year towards the end of the season, they relax a little to prepare for the playoffs and let a crappy team like Miami beat them.

    HAHAHA! I cannot believe you said you may “lurve her”. Followed with “le sigh”. HAHAHAHA!!

    Great post. 🙂

    Molls takes the cake with the “Ciao” comment. Seriously dislike that word. Can you make Molly stay? I’m starting to get really BLUE about her leaving us.

    Maybe a PINK socks story will help. Will you tell us the PINK socks story… Or I’ll start whining again about Molly leaving us!

  12. Sarah says:

    Pushing up Daises is EVERYWHERE. It’s all everyone is talking about. I’m feeling like I missed out, and perhaps I need to do some catch-up online and start watching.

    Also- One Day at a Time? I got nothin’.

  13. Pessimistic Redhead says:

    I’m 26 and I know One Day at a Time. In college, my roommates and I even called our apartment complex’s repair guy “Schneider,” though I think I was the only one who knew the reference. Na, na, na, na!

  14. Becky says:

    I used to love that show (I’m 27)…Trudy was my favorite, although I liked them all…Blair, Natalie, Jo…I feel like I’m missing someone…

    Anyway, I just wanted you to know that some people caught your reference. That saying also reminds me of some plaque (?sp) thing that my mom had hanging in our house in the 80s.
