Friday 5-hundred

It’s been a quiet week in Lake Woebegon…
But I don’t live there.

1. I won! I won! It took patience and continued conservative bidding over at eBay, but I finally managed to get the winning bid on an iPod. Twice. Because I hadn’t been winning anything, so I was bidding on everything that looked decent. All at once.Β  (I’m giving my husband the spare one.) Now I can finally use the iTunes gift card that I won from Thom for being his 1,000th commenter in March.Β  If you give a mouse a cookie…

2. You are reading my 500th post! Okay, so that’s probably only half as exciting as 1,000th commenter, but…

3. I nearly had something exciting to add: SuperDad called me on Tuesday to discuss a job opportunity… beginning this summer… in Germany. A family discussion on Tuesday evening along with additional information on Wednesday made him decide to decline.

4. Multiple kids means multiple schools and multiple meetings. Welcome to my week.

5. As I write this, birds are singing outside my window, calling to the sleeping sun. I’m not a morning person, but I do love the peacefulness of the pre-dawn hour. And coffee.

What’s brewing over at your place?

  5. Happy post #500!

    A job opportunity in Germany would be tough to turn down.

    I’ve never bought anything off E-bay. I’ve tried a couple of times to get a laptop cheap, but gave up when the price got too high.

  6. What a week.

    I’m about to crawl in bed with a book–I’d like to get in a good 2 hours with a book.

  7. No coffee — I indulged way too much this winter and reactivated my acid reflux. Now I am back to being very careful and well-behaved. Pft.

  8. 500??! That is something to mention, for sure.
