1Sarah is constantly spotting people who are texting while driving. She will yell out, "Look that person is texting and driving! That's so dangerous!" Meanwhile she has pulled something out of her backpack that she wants me to read/look at/sign/comment on while simultaneously handing her a pen/lip gloss/paper/snack from my purse.
2The cat is sitting on my lap as I am typing this passing gas. Stupid cat.
Peter's guitar teacher was in a motorcycle accident a couple of weeks ago. He was going about 10mph, slowing down to make a turn, when someone hit him. He fractured his knee.
3Both Sarah and Peter are convinced that the driver was texting while driving. Perhaps she was just trying to hand her daughter a snack/pen/lip gloss/paper from her purse....
I saw this on Facebook last week. Love it:
5I was checking my statcounter yesterday and lately the majority of people coming to my blog have ended up here by googling "pirate birthday party", "treasure hunt clues" or "halloween party food ideas". Yesterday though, someone ended up here by googling "lonely mom". She stayed almost 8 minutes and read 5 posts. Lonely Mom from Jacksonville, FL, you are welcome here anytime.. Feel free to leave me a comment. I don't get too many of those and that makes me feel lonely sometimes too!
6Quick question - When you are using google as a verb is it Googled with a capital G or googled with a lower case g? I used a lower case g in Quick Take #5 and it looks weird. However, it also looks weird with a capital G also.
7Peter came home from school very excited about the school Science Fair. He told me volcanoes were not allowed and that the entries had to be experiments. He's very excited and wants to participate. I was happy about that until I read over the information.
Before he can even get started, he has to fill out a form and he has to write a research plan that includes 1) research question or problem, 2) hypothesis, 3) materials and procedure, 4) sources of information.
Guess I better start scouring the internet for 3rd grade appropriate science projects....
Have a great weekend, y'all! For more Quick Takes, head to Conversion Diary.
