Recent, Extremely Lofty Goals

Goal #1:  I plan on forever signing any correspondence I write (um, which is becoming less and less.  Dude, I used to spend hours each day corresponding when I was a teenager!  And then hours writing e-mails to my friends until ten years ago, when Facebook put an end to that) with:



I got a letter at Parent/Teacher conferences last week (or the 5th level of Dante's Inferno, as I like to call it - Dylan was actually arguing with his teacher and me during his conference, and Sadie burst into tears during hers.....sheesh) about the annual 5th grade city-wide patriotic singing recital.  I remember when my school did that.  Heck, I even remember some of the songs:  "Buyyyy nowww without fail, at the Washington's Birthday Sale!!"  That was a cute song.

Anyways, the letter detailed where you should park, what your kids should wear, when you should drop them off, where you should sit, that no little children are allowed (Mom, how do you feel about baby-sitting that night???), etc.

And then, at the bottom of the letter, the district music directors actually signed it:


Joe Schmoe, Jan Schman, Jon Schmon, and Jean Schmen, district music specialists

I laughed for a good five minutes about that.  I took a picture of the silly sign-off and sent it to my BFF Pooh, whose mom was a district music specialist for years and years, and she texted me back, "Um, that is soooo special."  Hahaha!  Love that girl's dry sense of humor.

And I decided that it would be pretty awesome if I sign off on correspondence in that way.  "Musically..."

Goal #2:  I'm reinstating this goal.  I was really good about keeping it for awhile, and then it fell out of use.  I plan on answering the phone with, "Moshi, moshi!!!" like my adorable friend Jason does.  It's Japanese.  It means hello.  It's hilarious.  I'm going to work on this goal with more fervor.  Plan on hearing a hearty and flamboyant, "Moshi, moshi!!" the next time you call me.
From context clues I received while looking at images under "moshi moshi," "desu" means "speaking."  So Spiderman is saying, "Hello, Spiderman speaking."

Goal #3:  I'm going to use the word "nefarious" as much as I possibly can.  Our Relief Society teacher used that word yesterday when describing how she listened to the sacrament prayers as a teen.  She said she listened very carefully, but it was for nefarious purposes, because she wanted to be able to chuckle if the poor little priest she knew messed up the sacrament prayer.  My ears perked up.  Ooooh!  Nefarious!!!  I haven't heard that word in forever!  That is a good word!!!  It seriously made my day.  That, and of course, the nice feeling that the Holy Ghost gives you when you are in church.  That also makes my day.

Oh, and nefarious means "wicked."  Use it in a sentence today.

I'll be able to use that word quite often in describing my children's normal, everyday behavior and activities.  My children can be very nefarious sometimes.

P.S. Right now, my dog is trying to chew on a really large rock and it's really funny.

Haha! I love your goals! You make my day all the time, you're so funny! :) I love reading your blog! Sorry I've been so bad about it! I hope maybe I can get caught up today during the 2 hours I'll be waiting for my kids doing their psycho testing today:P

Great goals. I have to share a story, a few months back one of the priests was blessing the sacrament and messed up and then, right into the microphone said, "Oh crap!" and then quickly started over. His mom is my friend and I think she wanted to crawl under a rock right then, but the rest of us got a good laugh out of it.

By the way, one of these days I'm going to have to just call you out of the blue to test your phone answering skills...
