Three for Thursday

Why?
1. Because I couldn't think of anything else to write about today.
2. The first conscious memory I have from this morning is hearing my son say the word "thrice". (Kindergartners say "thrice"?)
3. I like lists. Sue me.

Three things I plan to do today:
1. Politely argue with the hospital billing department in Elko, Nevada.
2. Find an excuse to be at Costco during lunch time so I don't have to make peanut butter and honey sandwiches for lunch AGAIN.
3. Watch the latest episode of The Shaytards on YouTube.

Three things I am worried about:
1. The toilet overflowing again while Joe is out of town (Why does it always seem to overflow only when he is gone?! Plunging toilets = man's work)
2. Not meeting my free lance writing quota for the month.
3. That I am not giving each of my children the individual time and attention they need.

Three things I love...besides chocolate, my kids, and Joe:
1. Watching episodes of "The Office" on Netflix
2. The view from my patio (♪I love the mountains! I love the daffodils...♫♪♫♪)
3. The "me too!"s on yesterday's blog post

Three blogs (among the many) that I love to visit:
1. The Rowdy Stroudy's
2. The Organic Enchilada
3. The Great and Random Ramblings of Cannwin

Three pictures:
All Almost all the grandchildren on my side the week before Easter. We are missing two nieces who currently reside in Puerto Rico. Oh and a nephew who must have been napping.

My dad pointing to the parking lot that now covers where the first house I lived in as a baby used to stand. Only yards from the actual railroad tracks. I'm rather proud of my humble beginnings.

Elle with my dad. She always looks so somber in pictures.

Three things I picked up off the floor today:
1. Magnetic doll clothes
2. Soggy mini shredded wheat chunks
3. You really don't want to know

Three things I like about myself:
1. I am a loyal friend
2. My eyes
3. My testimony

Three things I learned this last year:
1. How to spell "restaurant" without the help of spell check.
2. Money can and cannot make one happy. (Now doesn't that make perfect sense?)
3. Vasectomies are not 100% effective until a few months after the surgery. (In case anyone was wondering.)

Three things I love about New Town, Utah:
1. Cafe Rio
2. It's only two and a half hours away from Hometown, Idaho.
3. The proximity of several blog buddies soon to be IRL buddies.

Three things I want my husband to know:
1. I'm going to use your gun to take care of a couple of cats outside that are freaking me out right now.
2. I didn't think I could do it, but I got this. (Single parenting. Not shooting cats.)
3. Obvious but true: I love you, ya' big lug.

Three things that make me to want to sit in a corner rocking back and forth:
1. Cancer
2. Jeigh waking up hysterically crying every night at exactly 11 pm. (We never should have let that girl watch Harry Potter.)
3. Neverending winter Arizona heat

Three things I miss:
1. Lana
2. Dr. Pepper
3. My waist circa 2003

Three confessions:
1. I still dream romantic dreams about an ex-boyfriend all the time and I HATE it. I believe he may possibly dabble in voodoo doll magic.
2. I make a concerted effort to not talk about food too much when it comes to my Facebook status updates.
3. It makes me a little angry when people talk about how much our children look like people other than Joe or me.

Three movies I could watch again and again:
1. Dan in Real Life
2. The Matrix
3. The Sound of Music

Three final thoughts:
1. I want deserve a REAL date night this weekend.
2. "WINNING!"
3. If you want to do a Three for Thursday too, leave a comment below with your link and I will gladly come read it. Hey! You could even get wild and do Four for Friday! Or Six for Saturday! Or a Million for...well, let's not get too carried away now.

6. I've had dreams about ex boyfriends before, except I don't thin romantic...maybe like one...most of the time we're both married and hanging out and it's real uncomfortable in my dreams!LOL Maybe he does have some kind of voodoo doll! LOL

Sami said...

I had a dream before I got married that I was pregnant by one of my ex boyfriends.
I woke up panicked.
I didn't know how to tell Roon that I had been unfaithful.
I think that boyfriend did some voodoo to get me to call off my wedding. He did NOT want me to get married.
LOVE this post, Ev!

Bethany @ Organic Enchilada said...

I had so many things to say about this, but then I got to your confession #1. I am so glad you admitted to that because I have been having the same problem for weeks! And I hate it too! What is the deal???

Carrie said...

You are cute;)

sarajo said...

Try Costa Vida, it's WAY better than Cafe Rio!! Well, IMO.

Cherie said...

What a fun post with all of your 3 things. It made me think on each one!

The kids look so cute all sitting together in their bunny ears - gotta love it!!

Dan in Real Life is the bomb.com - great movie!

MiMi said...

I'm still slack jawed over the kindergartener saying thrice.
You should do this every week!! :)
What was I gonna say?? I was gonna say something but I can't remember....

Someday I'll find out how to link on the comments. I know how to figure it out, I'm just too lazy to do it right now.

Also, hope to be an IRL friend this summer!

Patty Ann said...

I think this was a fun and thought provoking idea! Great job today.

Creating Sarah said...

oh, I enjoyed this. I sat and stared at the overpass picture for a few minutes just enjoying the view of Hometown. =)

If it wasn't so late, I would add my own list. Maybe tomorrow. Some on Saturday? =) I'll let you know.
