Don't play tag with a parrot and a cat


Thanks to Ralph Covert for the title, from the song "The Mighty Worm".


Here's some list-y goodness for you.








What I've learned this week so far:


  • I'm surprisingly resilient.

  • I have a thicker skin than I thought.

  • When left to my own devices, I am capable of doing good things.

  • That just when I think one thing is going to happen, something else usually does, and it's better.

  • And gosh darn it, people like me.

Oh, and I have the smartest kid in the class. No, really, her teacher told us that yesterday. We were told it was imperative that she be placed in a gifted class as soon as she reaches kindergarten.

Short post, because I worked late last night. I may be resilient, but I'm tired, too.

Blog awards will be distributed Saturday morning, and that's morning Eastern Daylight Time for you international folks.

Wonderful list, each item is a fine accomplishment.

I like your attitude! No wonder you win all the awards all the time.

Never underestimate resilience. I think it's one of the best qualities anyone can have.

Nice job with your brilliant FYO. I'm pretty sure her parents have a lot to do with it.

Jo Beaufoix said...

Yes, well done TFYO.

How proud are you Miss Jen.

Resilient, fabulous, lovable and with a gorgeous, cute and funny brainiac for a child.

Hooray.

Nice list!
I'm afraid that when I am left to my own devices, I just stare out of the window.
Congratulations on all the awards!

Jen said...

Well, it's a slightly self-indulgent list. Starting work Tuesday, I was kind of down on myself, so I guess I was looking for self-affirmation.

As for TFYO, she may be smart, but she's also a queen at pitching fits as well. She had a logn time out at school today, and lost playground time because of it.

Ha ha ha! I don't know if you ever check your stats, but I'm not really that slow of a reader. I was doing something else and I forgot that I had you blog up.

Anyway, you learned a lot this week, all I learned was farts + lumps = bad.
