Random Tuesday Thoughts


Last week was a bad week and I didn’t get anything posted besides Meow Monday. Of course, it was the first time I actually outlined posts for the week instead of just making random crap up at the last minute and it was a definite fail. So I’m back to making random crap up. You’re welcome.

I did have big napping blogging plans for yesterday. I figured once I managed to get everyone out of the house and walk/feed all the animals I would have several hours to myself. But no, it didn’t happen quite that way. My husband stayed home from work and I’m not ashamed to admit how easily I was persuaded not to do any housework or blogging by going out to lunch at Panera and getting a new pair of shoes. Okay, I’ll use any excuse not to do housework.

Plus, I desperately needed a new pair of shoes. The pair I usually wear to work has broken heels and you can see the wood inside. Really, they actually have wood inside not just crappy plastic. The uppers are still good and they’re made of leather so I’m thinking of taking them to a cobbler or an elf. Anyone know a good cobbler or elf who repairs shoes? Or is cobblering cobbling a thing of the past that went out with haberdashers and the Pony Express?

Can you imagine what it was like waiting for mail that came on horseback? I send an email and 5 seconds later I’m thinking “Why haven’t they answered my email yet??!!”


I really think Comcast gives out phone numbers the minute someone doesn’t pay their bill. Lucky me I got a phone number of someone named “Sandra”, who gets A LOT of phone calls. Even yesterday when I went to Walgreens to pick up some photos I had printed I had to sign up for one of their rewards card. I gave them my phone number and guess what…..It’s Sandra! I know her birth year is 1957 because it came up on the cashiers screen. Yeah, I’m not Sandra and I’m sure as hell not born in 1957, so stop calling me, thank you very much!

I think only divorced Fathers can say, “I’m busy” when it comes to the scheduled days when they’re suppose to have their kids. I don’t know one Mother that has said, “oh yeah, I can’t take care of my kids today, I’m busy.” Just saying

We had an earthquake here in NH last week. It was pretty big for around here. After it happened Thing 2 said, “that was an earthquake, I know it.” I looked online to see if there was anything about it, nope. Then I went onto Facebook. There it was, 300 friends from Maine, NH, and Mass all posting about an earthquake. Thank goodness for Facebook.

Oh, and speaking of Facebook, here is a note to some of my friends. Dear Friends, do you really think you posting political crap all over my newsfeed is really going to influence my vote? Because seriously, all you are influencing me to do is “hide” you. Thank you.

Don’t forget to join us for What The Hell Wednesday tomorrow!


If it’s Tuesday this must be Random Tuesday Thoughts. It used to be brought to you by Keely at The Un-Mom but she’s taking a hiatus. Okay, it’s been a really long hiatus but Random Tuesdays still rock on with help from Stacy.

  1. One of you had a Blonde Moment and forgot to link up – but thanks to a loving daughter by the name of Jessica, I was alerted to the fact that you have an RTT post up! 😉 I’ve got your back, though – I linked you up. 🙂

    Elle – I have the same trouble when I pre-plan posts for the week…I end up not doing them, or something comes up, or I’m just not feeling it. I do much better when I make them up on the fly. 🙂 Can your hubby give mine some pointers? When mine decides to take a day off work, I never get lunch or new shoes, it’s more like there’s an extra kid in the house for the day that I have to take care of. 🙂 There must be cobblers still around since there was one on The Mentalist last week. 😉 If they still delivered mail on horseback we’d be in trouble – the hubby would never want to be around during the delivery time, because he’s afraid of horses. 🙂

    Stacy – we had the same issue with getting odd phone calls for someone whose name neither of us have shortly after switching back over to Comcast. Apparently they don’t wait the original 6+ months time frame before re-issuing phone numbers like they used to, since they don’t have enough new numbers to go around. Sounds like it sucks to be Sandra. 😉 I think you’re on to something – I don’t know any mother’s who say “I’m busy” when it comes to taking care of their kids, either. An earthquake in NH?! Crazy! I have noticed it’s much faster to get confirmation or news on Facebook than it is from our local news people. 🙂 I can’t wait until all the political stuff is done and over with.

    Elle, Congrats on the new shoes! I love getting new shoes. I hope this week is better for posting. Although I am always happy to see a Meow Monday.

    Stacy, I enjoy the funny political stuff posted on Facebook. The rah rah stuff is annoying but there are definitely some funny things out there.
