The Claw, Colds & Christmas Decorations. Yup, We’re Random.


For the past few days I’ve been pulling out the Christmas decorations and trying to clean up some clutter at the same time. Now it looks like Christmas threw up all over the place with only a couple of places actually decorated. I hung up the lighted pine garland around the door frame only to plug it in after struggling to get it just right and only half of the lights work. You’d think I would’ve remembered to plug it in before I attempted to hang it up. I left it up there for now, at least it looks festive and maybe my husband can make it work when he gets back from his latest business trip.

Last night J-Man announced he didn’t want the big present he’s been asking for. That’s the second special present he’s decided he doesn’t want for Christmas this year. I asked him what he did want and he said “I don’t know. I always get so many cool things that I would never think of so I’m good” Yes, it’s totally awesome he is content with what he has, but it sure makes it hard for Santa if he won’t say what he wants. Apparently his favorite Christmas present of all time is his “claw”. He likes to pick things up with it. Okay, good to know that video games don’t trump the $2.99 claw.


I don’t understand how your nose can be completely stuffed up to the point where your eyes are swollen, but yet it’s running at the same time.  I cannot for the life of me blow my nose it’s so stuffed up, but one nostril won’t stop.  OMG, so irritating!  If I wasn’t at work right now I’d stuff a tissue in it to stop it!


And, speaking of having nose issues, how is it that your nose running can feel like lava is pouring out of it onto your skin?  It’s your own fluid, but it’s so painful!  I guess I’m festive for the season with the bright red nose!


Since I’m on a roll with the whole nose/cold thing.  If your nose is irritated I’ve found out that the best thing for your sore skin is Chapstick Medicated lip balm.  Of course you want to make sure you label it for just your nose.


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.

    I can’t do random today, as I’m too busy. Yeah, but obviously not too busy to read blogs. Sigh.

    So, I KNOW. My son won’t give me a list either. AND that’s crazy because it makes my life/shopping SO HARD. Hate that.

    And Stacy? Yuck. Feel better. 🙂

  2. Oh you remind me of my poor husband, he just had an operation on his sinuses and he hasn’t been able to breathe for a week and his head is throbbing and his eyes watering. I had the same operation but I also had my tonsils out at the same time so I was so wrapped up in that pain I don’t even remember not being able to breathe.

  3. Stacy, I think it hurts so much because you’ve rubbed your nose raw =( An antihistamine will help your nose stop running (claritin, allegra, zyrtec) (benadryl too, but that will make you sleepy) and Sudafed will help get rid of some of the pressure. Don’t take the Sudafed too close to bed time, you’ll never get to sleep. Feel better!

  4. Sorry I haven’t gotten you our Christmas list yet Mum! I’ll try and send it tonight or tomorrow =) Good luck with J-Man, I’m curious to see what Santa ends up giving him.
