7 Quick Takes Friday, #76

1. It's been a loooong week.  Here are some reasons why:

2. Mia and Lauren started preschool and Kid's Day Out.  The effort of getting back into the swing of a routine has been cumbersome but satisfying.  And only a little sad.

3. I was rejected from the Drivers' License Bureau for not having proper identification to renew my driver's license.  After all, it's not like they could look at the picture on my license to see who I was.  No, a passport or birth certificate could do that better.  And you know I always have those with me.  (Yes, I should have read the renewal mailer's instructions better, but...meh.)

4. Lauren found the pile of almost disintegrated bananas I was saving for banana bread -- but which needed to be thrown away because they were even past the point of bread-magic-salvation -- and tore into them, eating half a mush-bomb before I could stop her. 

5. Mia, upon seeing me exit the shower, needed sudden and particular details of female anatomy and why I look 'like that' and would she look like that when she grows up to be a princess? 

6. I just sent my toddler to her naptime with no lunch, because she chose to throw it all over the table and shove it away instead of eat it.  I feel bad about her probably hungry stomach, but justified because she fell asleep immediately meaning her bad behavior can reasonably be blamed on tiredness. 

7. But the week should end on a high note because tonight I'm going to see Dracula performed by our regional ballet company, and I'm more excited than the situation probably warrants.  (Have you seen the Dracula ballet before?)  And tomorrow, we're making a trip to spend the day with my best friend and her family with whom I plan to talk and relax and swim and laugh all the live-long day. 

What are you up to this weekend?  Whatever it is, I hope you enjoy it thoroughly!  Be sure to stop by Conversion Diary for more Quick Takes!


  1. 4- Oy.
    5- Double oy.
    7- Yay for ballet! Haven't been to see ballet since I was... 8? But it's on my to-do list!

    Have fun this weekend!!!

  2. O Goodness! I can't stand getting my liscence renewed, I remember not being able to proove that I lived in that state and having to drive back home twice to get the proper documents. And as non-citizens in canada it's been even worse, they flagged my hubby signature on his passport becuase it doesn't look like his signature today. Hello! He was 17 when he got that passport. Drives me crazy.

  3. our weeks overlapped a lot
    -looong week
    -driver id troubles
    -kids destroying banana bread :)

    Dracula is an exquisite ballet, one of my favorites!! Have fun, sounds like you've earned some time for yourself :)

  4. Have fun this weekend! Sounds like you had a loooong, interesting week!

  5. There's a dracula ballet? How cool is that.

  6. #3 - Been there, done that
    #4 - Yuch!
    #5 - LOL. I think that happens with every mom and daughter. Just make sure that when there are certain times, oh how do I say this, when you and hubbs are together that you....LOCK THE DOOR. We learned the hard way.
    Enough said.

  7. Sorry about your long week! You definitely deserve a night at the ballet and a good girlfriend day!


Hmm...And how did that make you FEEL?
