Random Ramblings of Randomness


What a day!  My mind is simply too exhausted to actually focus on a specific topic for a post, so ramblings is what you get.  Consider yourself warned!!

♦  I have managed to work my poor little self to the bone today cleaning house and doing laundry.  I organized the homeschool room, washed a few windows, all the normal cleaning…. a busy girl, I was!  I was truly productive!  Go me!  But, now, I’m completely worn out and supper still needs to be cooked.  Plus, Bernie has played outside most of the day, which means he needs a bath.   The van still needs to be washed.  I really DID work all day, but is sure doesn’t sound like it with the list of things I still need to do.  :-/

♦  Since I have spent the day working so hard, I really think I deserve a pedicure.  Too bad my budget doesn’t agree.   Double :-/

♦  When you desperately need Calgon to take you away, but you’re out………Doggy Shampoo will work just fine.  Yes, I KNOW this.  I’m sure human shampoo would work great too, but I was so tired I just grabbed.  It was Bernie’s puppy shampoo.   I wasn’t ABOUT to empty out that garden tub full of suds….besides, I had already soaked for 20 minutes or so before I finally figured out why the scent was different, but familiar.

♦  That reminds me….. Bernie STILL needs a bath.  I should have saved my bath water and dunked him in.  That would save on shampoo AND water!  Of course, it would also be really gross.  But then again, I did soak for a half hour in puppy suds.  I have a pretty high gross tolerance.  Having kids will do that to you, especially boys.

♦  That brings back memories of the stomach virus from H-E-double hockey sticks.  That should probably be saved for another post.  All I will say is loft bed.  Train table.  Puke travels.

♦  Special K cracker chips taste a LOT like Baked Lays….with even fewer fat and calories per serving.  I heart them.  I already heart their new cereal….now if they will just create a healthy chocolate, maybe I can actually stay on my ‘healthy eating plan’.  HEP is really just a fancy shmancy phrase for a you-know-what, but I’m trying to play mind games and fool myself into sticking to the big D word…Shhhh…. don’t say anything.

♦  Speaking of food, since I am too tired to cook, I just ordered hamburgers and fried boudain for supper.  In my defense, the closest thing without driving to another town is Dairy Queen or the local greeezyy spoon.  I’ve always liked grease.  Hence the need for the HEP….

♦  Ever since thinking about Rob Lowe the other night, I have been on a quest to identify the world’s hottest man.  Oddly enough, all I can think of are famous men that are a complete turnoff.  It’s like I have to weed out all the losers in my mind before getting to the good ones.  And I’m thinking if I have to look them up on Google, they didn’t make much of an impression and aren’t worthy.  So far, all that have made the HOT list (other than Rob, obviously) is John McCain, Sam on Private Practice, McDreamy,  and possibly Frank from Everybody Loves Raymond.  Frank (aka Peter Boyle) is really not THAT hot, but I love a man that makes me laugh. Plus, he is kind of, well, um…… dead.  So I’m not sure if he should count.

♦ Bananas and Fritos are the bomb diggity….a treat my Granny introduced me to.  Don’t knock it til you try it.

♦Food is a recurring theme here tonight.  I think I’m hungry.

♦  My eleven year old just informed me that he wants to be like Sheldon Cooper from the Big Bang Theory.  He is currently re-organizing his room as he aspires to reach Sheldon’s level of organizational awesomeness.  Considering he has a few (to put it lightly) OCD tendencies pre-Sheldon influence,  this worries me.  On the other hand, maybe his organizing obsession will spill over into the rest of the house.   He could stay busy for years right here at home.

♦  And last, but most important, you gotta love a man who brings home the boudain.  So I think I’ll get off the computer and spend some time with the family.  There’s nothing like snuggling up on the couch with kids fresh out of the bath tub.  Which reminds me, I better go put the puppy shampoo up.  If my heathens figure out what I did, they’ll never let me forget it!!

Randomness Strikes Again


Randomness is a part of my life.

It is a direct result of a life spent fighting undiagnosed ADHD.

Randomness consumes my mind most days.  Usually, I discipline myself to focus on the necessities of life.  But the weekend is getting scarily close to making its anticipated appearance, so I’m rebelling against the war within my brain to focus.  It’s over-rated anyway.  So, in my best “na-nanny boo-boo” voice……….

I don’t have to….and you can’t make me!!

Randomocity will reign supreme in my life today.  And I’m embracing it.

In honor of this special occasion, you get yet another random list of random nothingness.  I hope you randomly enjoy my randomness.

  • Although I don’t really believe in psychics, I would love to go try one out.  But then if they told me something I didn’t need to hear, I’m afraid I would spend my life obsessing over how to fix it, which would then lead me back to the psychic to tell me what to do, which would just continue the cycle.  I would forever be like a hamster in a wheel that never stops spinning.  I would be in  HAMSTER HELL!!!  Therefore, I exercise a bit of self-control and just say NO.  Go me!

  • I really want to give up Facebook.  I know, I know, people say these things all the time.  But I’m seriously considering it.  It consumes my life.  Besides, blogging is much more fun.  😉
  • I am on a quest to learn how to cook healthy foods…..and I’m actually enjoying it.  My kids are beginning to be much more health conscious, which is what spurred me to start in the first place.  Maybe I won’t die with clogged arteries after all.
  • The youngest of my herd is a coin collector.  Actually, he’s a quarter collector.  This makes me wanna ask every person I know to empty their pockets and let me check out their stash just in case its one of those elusive states he has yet to find.  It’s a good thing I don’t work as a cashier.  The only thing I would accomplish is harassing the customers for their quarters.
  • Pride and Prejudice is the absolute best love story ever.  I will forever be in love with Mr. Darcy.  What girl doesn’t want to hear, “You have bewitched me, body and soul, and I love…I love…I love you.  I never wish to be parted from you from this day on.”  My knees are wobbling  at only the thought!!
  • I would love to find some old-fashioned lip-gloss like they had when I was a kid.  You know the kind that has the roller ball and tastes like bubble gum?  YUM!

  • I’m a closet Cowboys fan.  I thought about coming out, but making fun of them is so much more fun.  Especially as long as they have Romo on the team.
  • I read on Pinterest that most people pass gas 14 times a day.  Sounds like a lot of bull-balonkey, if you ask me.  I have now spent several days trying to count to see if this is actually true, but my ADD seems to get in the way of making it through the day without losing count.
  • My van needs a good cleaning.  I’m taking volunteers.
  • I love the idea of crafting, but truly lack the focus to engage in it.  I would love to be one of those super-creative people who can do anything.  Maybe I should read Crafting for Dummies.

  • Don Williams makes me miss my childhood.  The good ole days of eating beans and rice and watching the Barbara Mandrell Show.  (Go ahead, count it up to figure out how old I am, I’m still not telling!)
  • That whole healthy eating thing…….it also includes the dreaded word exercise.

Which shakes me to reality.  It’s almost time to meet some real live people at the track and huff and puff for the sake of burning a few calories.  Then, home again to try this new recipe.  Lowfat, of course.  Maybe I’ll even walk to the tunes of Don……
