Welcome to another edition of Random Monday Thoughts. Yes, I know today is Wednesday but Monday was my birthday and I never got around to blogging so I figured what the hell, just do it today.
Hey, it’s my blog and I can do what I want right??? (lol). And now on to my Random Thoughts….
1) Yay me!
I am happy to report that yesterday’s post Belated Birthday Thoughts brought in a 2013 record-breaking 115 views!!!!!!!!!!
I know we don’t blog for numbers. We blog because we want to and it’s a place to share our thoughts and that stats are not important but…..come on 115 is in the three digits!!!!
I have to be honest, my 115 view would not have been possible without the help of fellow U of D alumni Jeff Pearlman. Thank you Jeff for allowing me to link to your birthday post here yesterday AND for tagging me on Facebook!!
2) Team Jake
As I have mentioned before, this past weekend my family and I participated in Children’s Specialized Hospital’s 7th Annual Walk & Roll event.
I am so thrilled to report that “Team Jake” raised a whopping (insert drum roll) $1030!!!!!!
Thank you to all the friends and family that supported us we really appreciate it!
3) Everyone needs a little vampire love
I am SOOOOO happy that I listened to Mrs. Jeter and stuck with The Vampire Diaries.
I am LOVING the oh-so-hot vampire brothers Damon and Stefan Salvatore who have come back to Mystic Falls (after 145 years) and really shaken things up.
At first, I didn’t think it was possible to love another vampire the way I loved Edward Cullen. However, Stefan and Damon (more Damon) have proved me wrong.
Their love and devotion to the slightly annoying Elena is nothing short of “breathtaking” (Can you name the Seinfeld reference???).
4) Black & White Day
I was very excited to wear my new white skirt to work today. It was a recent Loft purchase (on sale with an additional 60% off) and I thought it would perk me up on this cloudy, über humid day.
I paired the skirt with a black, lace trimmed cami and black, open cardigan and black peep toe wedges. Not wanting to go too overboard, I accessorized with simple silver bangles and hoops. Voila outfit accomplished.
This morning I was
reading People.com working, when I got an IM from my friend Nicole asking if I wanted to go for a belated birthday lunch.
YES!! I immediately responded. Now I would not be stuck eating my boring ham and swiss sandwich at my desk again.
Imagine my surprise when I ran into Nicole in the lady’s room a little while later saw that she too was wearing a white skirt, black, lace trimmed cami and black cardigan!
Aside from the fact that Nicole is about 5 inches shorter than me and 30 pounds lighter, we looked like twins – in a dorky way.
We laughed and muttered something about “great minds” but ultimately decided to postpone lunch for a day when we did not look like a sorority scheme gone bad (lol).
5) Kids are annoying sometimes
PLEASE don’t get me wrong, I LOVE my children. I may not always like them but I love them with all of my being.
However, these 4 children that I carried, gained a total of 180 pounds with and gave birth to (by C-section) are really starting to drive me CRAZY!!
WHY is EVERYTHING with my kids a fight???!! Everything. I am not talking about the usual things either like home work and sibling rivalry. I am talking about stupid, mundane things. Why?? Please help me understand.
For example, to celebrate the last 26 days of school, the twins’ school has assigned each day a letter of the alphabet with an activity associated with this letter. Today’s letter is “G” and it was “green day.”
Sounds easy right? NO.
Instead I spend a half hour arguing with M that his brother’s blue shorts were not green and that the 3 green t-shirts I held in my hand were the only green clothes that we owned.
What is the big deal? It’s Green Day, just put on a green shirt and be done with it. WHY do we have to argue???!!
AND M is a boy, I thought boys were easy-going and didn’t care what they wore?? Have moms been lying to me all these years???
I won’t even mention the fight over Taco Tuesday with the twins last night and how L kicked the crap out of me today because I dared to tell him it was time to change his diaper, get dressed and go to school (he told me school was closed today).
Well there you have it, some very random thoughts on a Wednesday afternoon. Thanks for reading. Enjoy the rest of your Hump Day!!
