Random Tuesday Thoughts


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.


Today I woke up with a runny, stuffy nose. Great, I’m sick again. This year has been ridiculous! I think I may have gotten sick once last year, this year it’s practically non-stop.

The Ambien Adventures continue. I may have to stop taking it. The thing is, I sleep so good, or at least I think I’m sleeping, and I feel rested, even if I am up talking, texting, emailing and saying super crazy things. It would probably make a funny YouTube video, although I don’t think I want everyone seeing me all messed up.

Did you know that there’s a Girl Scout Cookie App for Smart Phones this year? It tells you exactly where there is a Girl Scout Cookie Sale. I don’t know about you, but I’ve known for weeks, and have had my order in. Because really, the Mom’s selling the cookies sure let you know when they’re up for sale. You don’t need an app for that.


We finally got several inches of snow last week and my dogs are loving it. Me? Not so much. They love to go out, eat the snow then come in. About 30 minutes later they are barking to go out because they need to go from all the snow they ate. I let them out, they go, then try to eat more snow before I get them back inside. This cycle will repeat itself all day long. I try to stop them from eating snow which involves me yelling “Stop eating snow!” over and over. Then Toby will look at me and then sneak a huge bite of snow and run in the house. I can’t win. I’m hoping the snow will lose it’s appeal after a while.

Last night I planned on getting up early this morning and baking some cinnamon rolls for Sissy’s breakfast before school this morning. Okay, not homemade , Pillsbury does the heavy lifting, I put them in a dish and bake them and then frost them. It’s still a lot to do that early in the morning. But because someone was snoring I didn’t sleep very well. I didn’t get up as early as I planned, which turned out to be a good thing. Sissy also didn’t get up, even after I turned on her light. For the record, turning on the bedroom light in your teenage daughter’s room while she isn’t fully awake, totally ticks them off. Just sayin’ . So, in turn, Sissy didn’t come out into the kitchen until it was time for the bus. She didn’t have time to even look at the breakfast I did make, never mine eat it. She was pretty grumpy when she got on the bus. But since I didn’t get up early and make cinnamon rolls that she wouldn’t get the chance to eat, I was actually in a good mood. Funny how things work out.

Don’t forget to join us for What the Hell Wednesday tomorrow. It’s where we get to complain about all the things that made us say “What the Hell??”” this past week.
